When we go to Whataburger we see some of the same elderly people there. Today was no different. We saw two couples that we've seen before and the ladies are elderly twins. I commented to one of them how nice it is that they still dress alike. They are the same size, have the same silver hair with the same permanent wave and always have on matching clothes. She told me we are 80 years old and have always dressed alike. I know they say (who ever they is) that twins should not be dressed alike, they should be allowed to develop their own personality. Oh but they look soooo cute even at 80.
I kinda thought John was retiring and what does he do? He goes to the cattle auction and buys six more cows and two of them have babies. We had to go roust the cowboy from his nap to get him to haul them. They are in the pen getting located. One is a longhorn and he says for me. Ha bet he won't let me have the money when it has a calf. Oh well it doesn't have the veeeery long horns I like.
The turtles and fish should appreciate me. It was hot today and I walked to the tank to feed them while John was getting the water ready in the pens for the new cows. You would think I would have had sense enough to take an umbrella. They are still skittish and don't get out of the water. We need some wind to blow the green stuff to the side but it isn't as bad as it was last time.
They didn't start tearing the old house down, now we are doubting they will. The renters ask permission to use a very large metal water tank for a swimming pool. John gave his permission since he isn't using it presently. When we left they had already turned it on side and rolled it to the back yard and started filling it with water. That will be a sight with six very large people in it but hey its hot here in south texas. What ever works. The lady took me on a tour of their managerie in the back yard where the new pool will be. They have geese, ducks, cats, kittens, rabbits, guineas (sp) and little dogs and medium dogs outside the yard. They ask today if they could have a horse. I told her I'm not the boss she can ask but after the last horses renters had tore some of the fences down John said no more horses on the place. I notice she didn't ask him, I guess she thought she shouldn't press her luck after she ask to use the trough for a swimming pool. The only thing missing was the white (dirty) turkeys. They are the biggest traders I have ever seen and she mentioned Craig's List. lol
