It Was A Blue Indigo Morning
We rarly see a Blue Indigo snake but we had the pleasure of seeing the same one twice this morning. They are so pretty but if it crawled across my foot I would be doing a dance for sure. I had never seen one until several years ago when we were living at the ranch. We were walking toward the cattle pens and saw one swallowing a rattlesnake head first. I couldn't believe my eyes. It was so intent on it's meal it didn't even slither off. The one this morning did slither off but when we came back down the lane it was out again. Actually it was very close to where John killed the rattlesnake recently. We spotted a new calf and it was as black as the ace of spades just like Pepper. I guess it is a case of God gives and God takes away except in reverse. We saw several quail running here and there, I love those birds. I had my camera this morning but the two longhorns we saw didn't have any horns, nope these two had been de-horned but we could tell by their color they were longhorns. They kind of have skinny butts too. There is starting to be activity across the road. We've been seeing a sound o graf crew (not sure what they are called) but they are checking under the ground by sound. Maybe the owners will get to lease for oil. DD the pictures I used are old. My digital camera doesn't work. We are hot and dry here. Had a promise of showers yesterday but they didn't materialize.
