This pretty siggy was made for me by Sugar because I guessed correctly that her surprise is a new doggie. Can't wait to see a picture of it. Thank you Sugar.
We waited this morning for the temp to warm up to go feed the cattle but when we got there the gentle breeze was a little chilly. The cows were all lounging around in the tall grass chewing their cud without a care in the world. As we went over the tank dam I didn't see a single turtle head or bubble in the water. It had rained some rain we didn't know about so it was too wet to go up the hill to load a large round bale of hay. John opted to drive over to his daughter's house to pick up a bale there and haul it back which is what we did. After I cut the twine, pulled it off the hay, and started rolling it up while John was rolling a hay ring over to cover the hay so the cows don't tromp and pee on it I started my walk to check the turtles. Cows doesn't have good manners sometime. Not a turtle in sight so I thought they had made a liar out of me and wasn't going to come out until winter is over. We drove the tuck over the dam and counted the calves. For once John and I got the same count, 14. He sold the big ones recently. The cattle are looking well in spite of the colder then usual weather here. As we drove back over the dam I thought I saw a couple of heads bob up and some circles in the water so I ask John to stop. Evidently they heard the motor of the truck but there were only four. They seemed slow and not anxious to come out of the water so I fed the four and when I was almost out of food I could see two more making their way toward me. I don't guess I will be trying to pet a turtle anytime soon. I'll have to set my goal for spring.
