It Felt Strange Sitting In The Sheriff's Office
Me in trouble? No but I bet the lady I saw there that I met recently wondered what I was there for. On the other hand I wondered what she was there for too. John went there to ask a deputy to patrol the ranch area because of the missing calf. I waited in the hot truck until John came out to ask if I wanted to come in since he was going to have a wait. The deputy was nice and helpful and has promised to make himself seen around that area. We made two trips out, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. John was looking for a baby calf in the tall grass and scared up a wild turkey hen sitting on her eggs. He said there looked to be ten or twelve eggs. This afternoon he wanted to take me to walk out into that grass to see them. I said no thank you, I will take your word for it. I've had quite enough chigger bites. Remember my favorite cow Shelly Marie who is no longer with us? We saw her granddaughter today and she will be having a calf soon. Wow! Four generations of Shelly Marie.
