Family, part 2

Got done branding at Dean’s and made a hurried rush of getting Fred fed and changing clothes and turning my horse loose. Branding went well and it sure was a nice day.

I rushed into town and visited with my sister in Switzerland on Skype and visited with others who were at the house. Had a pretty good visit and all three of our sons and spouses and grandkids were there so I enjoyed that.

Having two sisters who you were not raised with is like having distant cousins you are told you are related to. You look much the same but have such different memories of growing up and really nothing in common except genetics. Still it was fun to get to listen to a few stories of my older sister.

I am headed out to help a neighbor move his cattle to summer pasture. Looks like the rest of this week we have a pretty strong chance of rain. I’ll take it. I’m greedy that way.
