Ranching Before Daylight
Actually we were eating potato and egg tacos on the tank dam. Sprinkling on some chopped onions and drizzling on some picante sauce. Hoping to spot a deer or two coming to drink water. They may have gotten a whiff of the onion and pepper and headed another direction. Oh well such is life. We checked the sweetlik tubs and the hay and headed back to town. The fog was so thick we couldn't see and there are always those idiots who will not turn on their lights. I was thankful to arrive home and refused to go out on the highway with John to buy feed when he could have waited an hour for the fog to lift. He drove there only to find they only had one tub left due to the holidays and so many people having to feed. So tomorrow we'll be haying. John is talking of buying five more cows. That man likes to buy cows like women like to buy clothes. I hope the farm house doesn't burn down tonight. We went back out late this afternoon and the young renter was gathering wood to build a fire. He had a fire New Year's eve and it was sooo close to the house. He also bragged about having a little too much to drink. I think he has a little too much to drink every week-end. I told John we should crash the birthday party they are giving for a young man friend. I bet the woods are singing. Not my rent property, not my business and they are lucky for that.
