Cattle Are Like People, Never Satisfied
Isn't this a beauty? It doesn't belong to John, but I wish it did. Look at the grass behind the rocks and it is trying to eat on the little short patch. Too bad it couldn't eat rocks, there are plenty in the hill country. Today we caught one of John's cows eating raw pear (cactus or prickly pear). There is plenty of good green grass from the nice rains we have had lately and it chooses to eat the sticky stuff. Tomorrow she will probably be throwing her head around trying to dislodge stickers from her tongue. On another note John's sister and brother-in-law are coming to visit from Alaska again next month. They like our weather in December compared to Alaska but they don't like our bugs and varmits. When he heard about the West Nile fevor contacted from mesquitoes he was about to back out of the trip. I wonder what she will do if one our little lizards moves in to her room. Maybe I'll dump a whole box of 'em. Can you tell I'm excited about being a motel maid for weeks?
