John went to the cattle auction and bought two cows. Just what a man needs who is trying to retire. He had to hire the cowboy to haul them home after he finished burning pear for his own cows. Getting dry around here. This is an old picture of one of the stock tanks. It doesn't look like that now. John took me out to meet the new girls and they are pretty. One has horns that look to be a longhorn or at least part. He really wanted to cut her horns but didn't have anyone to help him. I hate to see him cut those pretty horns off but she was already hogging the feed in an old bath tub. When she put her head down into the tub to eat she took up almost the whole thing and the other cow stood back. He will turn them loose tomorrow and the other cow will have a chance. He pens them up for a night until they locate. When we drove over the tank dam the new rat tail calf was sleeping right in the road. It sure didn't want to move. It is such a pretty color, a soft beige but its tail looks odd. Not much to write about these days. It is dry and ugly. Its amazing how fast things can change out there but at least it isn't boiling hot.
