The air was fresh this morning. Not quite cool enough for a jacket yet. The turtles and cattle seemed content. John even fed the turtles little pieces of tortilla. They liked it or maybe that is what the hispanic family who lives in the farm house feeds them. They are so funny when they come out of the water to get a tid bit. As soon as they get a good hold on it with their mouth they will scurry toward the water. I should do some research and see why they do this. Do they feel safer to eat in the water? Or can they not eat unless they are in the water? They seem to swallow it whole but its hard to tell. We went to check out the back forty and found the sweetest new baby bull calf still with it's cord on. It looked so soft and was a beige color. As we passed the house new renter's son came out to tell us they had already filled the water tank yesterday so we didn't have to do that. When we left to check on John's daughter as she still isn't well, we saw a man from Mexico fixing fence on the side of the county road. John stopped to chat a few minutes and got to practise his Spanish or I should say Tex-Mex. The man seemed greatful for the break. He waved goodbye with a big grin.
