Real nice weather. Kind of a chinook blowing. Got up over 40 today. I went down to the Baptist Church at Punkin Center a little after 12 and played and sang Christmas Hymns. Read a couple winter poems for them. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. They do this once a month and it’s mainly theContinue reading “12-9-10”
Grampa had a helper today to do chores. Hope brought Sam and Gus out yesterday and stayed over for a spell. So I found some old chaps of one of Gus’s uncles or his dad’s to help keep his legs warm and we went chorin’. He was a real big help!
Pearl Harbor day. Good time to remember we are never completely safe. And take actions to be prepared. Kind of like the Advent song we have been singing, “Prepare Ye the Way”. Such a gorgeous day out there that even Gramma went with me to feed and chore this morning. She claim’s I only marriedContinue reading “December 7, 10”

None are in bad shape yet, but it’s easier to keep them in good shape than to try and get them in good shape. Especially them ol’ gummer cows. Also I sortedContinue reading “12/3/10 Afternoon”
Huh, I forgot to update the blog yesterday. The satellite guy came and brought a new receiver so we can receive high def TV. I was impressed. Really makes a difference. And he programmed the remotes so they work on both TV’s. Cool. But we lost all the programs we had recorded. Mostly shows forContinue reading “12/3/10”
Nice day out there. Harnessed and hooked up the team and fed calves. Saddle horses was standing there at the corral so I caught Pilgrim and rode up west and changed some gates so the horses can go north and I can turn the calves east if I want to. Checked the bean for theContinue reading “12-1-10”
