Got up over 100 today. Kelvin and I rode down south to the next door neighboring pasture and failed in our attempt to bring back a strayed heifer. Dumb little rip wouldn’t drive lead or drag worth a darn. Perhaps with the right application of some braided kangaroo hide tomorrow we will change her mind and attitude.

We decided it was going to get too hot to do much else so we went to Rapid and went on a shopping trip. Money was left in that fair city and also in Spearfish where we went in search of banded collar shirts for Kelvin. I got a new chain on the chainsaw and left the old one for sharpening.

I got a pair of fairly cheap priced Ariat boots as Cindy has been after me forever to try a pair. We shall now see….
