I Saw It!
I saw the pear ball. Yuck! John wanted me to touch it to see how hard it was and it is old and maybe already shrunk some. It would have been interesting to see the inside and how the cow's food had wrapped around. I refrained as I have a low immune system due to low blood platelets. Mine were at last blood work 70,000 when they should be between 150,000 and 400,000. Last summer they were down to 41,000 so I try not to touch nasty things like pear balls and use lots of hand sanitiser. We saw another kind of unusual thing today. A squirrel in the pasture. We never see squirrels on this place. I'm sure it was hard pressed to find a mesquite bean or acorn left. The quail have moved up near the farm house and I don't think they hatched any little ones thise year. Also saw one of the cute little cotton tails. It was by the pens. I watched it watch John getting feed out of the grain tank. I'm sure it has figured out there is good stuff in there and scoops up any that John or the cows drop. When we left the ranch at ten it was already heating up. Haven't heard the news today if there are any wild fires. Almost everyday there are one or two new ones.
