Quality Time With Shelly Marie
We left later this morning to feed the cattle. It was nice and warm but a little breeze blowing. I spent quality time with Shelly Marie because she looked so sad for some reason. She didn't even rush to the hay, she stayed by me and we talked. Well I talked and she listened. I don't know what was wrong with her but she is old so maybe she aches at times too like I do. She has the longest white eyelashes. I ask her is she wants me to bring some mascara for her eyelashes and a red bow for her tail. Maybe that would cheer her up? John did all the work today as I had acupuncture yesterday for my nerve pain in the back. I'm glad it doesn't hurt to sit and ride. Just when I raise up from a sitting position. When we got to the tank there wasn't a turtle in sight so I got out of the truck to call. First one swimming as fast as it could across the tank from the far side. Then they started popping up everywhere and they seemed hungry. I took lots of food today to get them ready for cold weather that is sure to come back soon.
