The Moths Have Taken Up Residence In My Gloves
Our winters have been so mild the last few years I don't use my gloves, long johns and such. If we had a cold day that is about as long as it lasted and I didn't even bother to get out winter stuff. This year is different, we're having cold weather. Well its cold to us and I got out my gloves to go to the ranch this morning. I was surprised to see my gloves had some pretty good size holes. I wore them anyway, the cows don't care and the turtles don't care. In fact there was not a turtle in sight. I can't wait for a sunny day to see if they come out again. I think they will. What do you think? We drove around checking the cattle and they are looking good. We didn't find Shelly Marie or Mama Twiggy but we couldn't go to the back forty. Too muddy. We were hoping to see some deer or other wild animal since it is cold. None in sight. I think they are becoming sissies. Still no road kill (not that I'm wanting to see that) so they must be staying home at night and not out running wild or partying or whatever wild animals do to get run over. Even the new renters don't stick their head out the door when we drive down the lane. I heard a rumor that it may snow here on Christmas day. Someone's wishful thinking I would say. Maybe I'll just change my Christmas list to a new pair of gloves instead of a donkey.
