Same old same old. Work on some leather, feed cows, you know. Hasn’t been real warm, but not real cols either. I am still waiting for the January thaw. Even tho’ it will mean more ice, but we already have quite a little of that. Stupid Bob was chasing a cow this morning and beforeContinue reading “1/20/11”
Winter Solstice. first day of winter, on the calender, but we figure winter has been here for a month at least. Shortest amount of daylight for the year. It’s about 4:30 as I type this and almost dark. If it wasn’t for the full moon rising, it would be dark, I think. From now on,Continue reading “12/21/10”
Don’t suppose I will get to write that header again in my life! Just a wee bit brisk this morning! Had a regular blizzard last night.

Both Dean and I just hauled ours over there to save the vet from having to re-set up at our places. We only had 6 head, so it wasn’t much ofContinue reading “Monday Nov 22, 10”
Saddled Pilgrim up and rode around and checked on things this morning. I let him pack a spade while I was doing it. Here’s a few pics.
It is the supposedly ,last nice day we are going to get for awhile. Temps have been in the 30’s and 40’s. For the next 5 days or so, we are supposed to get some snow and temps in the single digits. I can remember years when I would have been really grateful to haveContinue reading “1/10/07”
