I was taken to task for not posting on here.. not much to post, it warmed up and we have lots of bare ground and ice now.. Tate has been working on the house, it has most of the windows in now and electrical into the house, or at least the wires are there, just need hooked up. We’ve been stringing wire inside and just doing what we can.. I took a wire wheel on the grinder to the walls to get rid of little rough spots, got some more of that to do.. we shipped out some cows today, we had been wintering.. not much else to report. Stockshow is hearer and we will be going in to a few events…the drop the broncride but are having a ranch bronc riding, so at least I’ll get to see some bucking horses… I don’t care for the Ranch rodeo as there ain’t much very ranchy about it… I will be going down to meet up with some far flung friend a day or so.. about all there is to report..



Cold, then warm back to cold. Cindy and I went to town on Wednesday, for my birthday to go to the chiropractor. We went to the new movie, Revenant. We weren’t real impressed. I don’t know why they used the name Hugh Glass and only took one part from his life and changed everything else.. I imagine Leo will get an Oscar.. it had some cool scenery  but the story line was about like a B movie.. lots of weird stuff that didn’t make much sense and several things that sure were’t right… typical Hollyweird style of western. If they would make a realistic movie of his real life and what he went thru’, that would make a great movie, but I guess they are just too cool to stick to the truth. About like all the “cool” people in this world. the truth doesn’t suit them.. Bit the pup is getting bigger.. she is sure a ferocious thing… ankle biter and pant leg dragger… she can get on the bed now so in the morning  we are awakened by her nips and licks on exposed flesh.. why does anyone want a dang pup? LOL

Not much for a breeze and sunshine.. I suppose it was up over 30… Chance and I sorted off some of the older and younger cows yesterday who need a bit more tender care and feed and kept them close. Then today Cindy and I lured the bunch in we put them with and sorted off some of the fatter ones and kicked them up west.. they get fed, just not as much, as they have picking. Tate and Chance took two trailers and went and got some hay Chance had bought. Chance drove my new to me 95 Dodge and got along good until almost home then it made a funny sound. They left it and came home with Tates load, unloaded and unhooked then went and got the other trailer load. The pickup runs but has oil on top of the motor.. might not be anything big, but they went and loaded the pickup up and hauled it to the mechanic.. hopefully it is just a hose that blew off. Chance said it pulled like a champ. I had them put some real aggressive tires on the back yesterday at CBH and he said it pulled like it had chains on, on snow. We also got a load of cake in. Busy day but got a lot done…
