A Real Callithump
Yes I would think the turtles and fish thought that was a real callithump yesterday. They wouldn't come when I called and the few that did avoided the bank. We saw signs where fishing had gone on. Must have been an easy catch. We went out very early to get the electricity set up for the razing of the old home place. They hadn't showed up when we left and probably won't being a holiday. The cows were out grazing in the field and all their calves were standing under a tree. When they heard the motor of the truck they all started running and didn't stop until they got to the other side. Now the Mama's will have to gather them all up later. One moo sounds like the other to me but each must be different as they can always call thier own calf up. When we left the radiator was all stuffed up with pollen, leaves, and trash so I suggested we stop in town at the car wash. For fifty cents we sprayed it all out and the truck was running cooler. When John started spraying the hard water a little field mouse hopped out. It was a fat little buger, probably pregnant. I'm glad we didn't make it home with it in tow. There is a small field behind the car wash and next to a grocery store so I guess it will have a good life.
