Not real sure at what we been busy about, but seems like there is always something… I’ve pulled some loads with the new pickup and it pulls well, I really like the engine brake, drove down to a gig  in the southern part of the start and back and got over 17 miles to the gallon.. that seemed pretty good.seems to get better mileage at 70 than slower… been getting stuff ready for the Artist Ride coming up fast… Kelvin, my friend from Denmark flies in Saturday evening for an extended visit… I let the cows into the middle pasture today for fresh grass. they seem to be enjoining it..we’ve been getting some storms passing thru’, some days we get rain some times mostly wind and lightning.. no fires real close to here but all around us it sounds like.. we are still pretty green, considering how dry it’s been.. been working on the house getting some chinking done.. almost got the outside chinking done..Cindy started working the Rally lastFriday night.. she works from 7 to 5 the next morning.. so our sleep schedule has been all messed up.. Laramie and Bob came and shod up the horses for me the other day.. should be riding my colt I guess, suppose I am going to have to send him back toDustin for awhile… then I know he will be good.
