Bright Eyed And Bushy Tailed
Last night John ask me if I was going to get up and go to the ranch with him this morning. He said he would be going about eight. Weeel it depends on how brighteyed and bushytailed I am. I awoke at six, made the bed, washed dishes, and picked up around the house and John was still sawing logs. We did get out early enough to catch the renters in the farm house still sleeping so we didn't disturb them to collect rent. We drove out back to find the girlfriend cows. Girlfriend is still nursing her friend's calf. John thinks the mama's bag (udder) is bad. Isn't that nice to have a friend like that? We went over to John's daughter's place and drove to the back to check the stock tank. It is low but not as low as we though it might be. We saw five or six deer cross in front of us probably going to drink water. All the animals are having to come in closer now for their water and food with the terrible drought here. We went in to visit his daughter and her mother and a neighbor who was visiting them. She showed us a wind up mouse she bought for her cats and told about their antics with it. She built a kitty condo for them so she can control them when she needs to. She sent Susie a package of treats. We made a quick stop at the farmer's house and on home before noon. It was a quiet Saturday morning in the country.
