Have You Ever Tried To Count Wiggley Worms?

That was what it was like to day trying to count baby calves. Think we finally got them all, seventeen. They run here and they run there and they hide behind their mom. Everything is green and fresh at the ranch and the temp. was just right. John repaired a little fence while I was calling the turtles up. I think they all came to breakfast this morning. Even Floor Tile and Raggedy Shell came out of the water. Those two I can tell from the rest so I named them according to their shell.

Looking so nice in our neck of the woods as well! Green and far with the correct amount of rainfall. Praise God! I watched the cutest episode of Bonanza on TV earlier. It had Hoss finding little men dressed in green and gold. Hillarious! Hope you are still well and fiesty Paula! ~ Barbara

Wow 17 little calves that is great. Glad thigs are going well enough that you can feed the turtles. I am sure all animals must love you lady!!!

I am sure it was hard counting the babies running here and there. So sweet how they hang with their mamas.

My brother sold a load of cattle through an online auction a few days ago. These were from babies born on the farm. He was more than pleased with the sale. He called to give me

Take care Paula and have a good rest of the weekend.

It has been really warm here but cooler today and supposed to be in the low to mid 60's all week. I smell coffee and it is calling my name.

I name all animals and I have no rhyme or reason. To me, it's only logical to name the turtles.

Nice to hear that everything's green your way. Those droughts wreak havoc.

Sounds like you had a great day, Paula. I love the turtle names...very descriptive! My dad and I used to.occasionally, tally cattle as they were loaded into stock cars on the railroad...tain't easy.

Hi Paula, I am finally going to be able to comment. I think I did on this one but it is nice that your personalize your turtles. If I don't hear from my family doctor that all is ok with my physical I will be having surgery as planned Fri. morning. It is already costing me a bundle besides the insurance.

Lucy said...

How many wiggly worms are you up to now> Or was that calves. Has the count changed?

Another funny post. So glad I came by tonight I so needed a good laugh.
I love the names you picked for your turtles. If I ever need a cat named around here I am calling you

How nice to have 17 babies. So
glad the turtles came out for
Breakfast. I'm glad two have their
own names, thats funny. Jack wanted me to write a blog about
me riding in a Hearse to work one
year when we had snow. He thought
it was funny me coming alive
getting out of the back to go to
work. I love to hear about the turtles.

Hi Paula, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Hi Paula, so glad you stopped by today. I hope everything is going well in your world. I'm going to try to be a better blogging friend like the good old days. I'm still feeding the turtles too and now I have cows in the pasture behind my house. I've been busy naming them. I need to get some photos to share to introduce you to my new "pets" :)

"Floor Tile" and "Raggedy Shell" are great names!

Spring on a ranch must be so much fun!
