Went branding on Saturday afternoon and Sunday. the we had friends arrive to visit a couple days, yesterday afternoon. they are off helping to thin the p dogs at a neighbors. Cindy and I drove Purple up to check a tank this morning and I went to show her the plant I found growing in an old hay corral and we found a p dog who was setting up a home. I shot at him and found blood at the hole, so I think he is going to stay here permanently! I dug up one of the plants and brought it home, got out my plant book and think I found it. Doesn’t seem to be anything bad, so will quit worrying. Last night Bob (friend, not the dog) went and fixed the bad radiator hose on the tractor, then off to fix the bad valve on a tank, but the new part didn’t fix it. Guess I will have to get a whole new valve. We are going to take them up to see Chance and Hope this afternoon/evening.

Few branding pictures from the weekend. Had the camera on the wrong setting so never got too many good ones.
