The air was so cool and fresh at the ranch early this morning but by ten it was too hot. New renters are moving in and the son spent the night out there alone so I guess he isn't a city sissy. I wonder if he heard any coyotes in the night. There were black birds everywhere. Never seen so many out there and the roadrunners have been absent lately. We are seeing a cottontail or two lately so I hope they are building up their count again. New renters have promised not to shoot animals. A couple more baby calves born. That makes 21 or 22 now. John has started irrigating the field in front of the house to make green grass for the cows to eat and beat the hot summer. The new renters are lucky for that too as when we lived out there the field was plowed and when the wind blew the sand came straight to the house and inside around the air/conditioners and under the doors to make it hard to keep clean. Nice week-end to anyone reading this.
