What Has Your Excitement Been So Far Today?
Can you see the buzzards on the fence post? It doesn't take much to excite John and I. We even talked about that today and laughed at ourselves for putting on the brakes on a country road and backing up to see what the buzzards were dining on. It had been a large animal and about all that was left was the ribs. Had to have been a deer, large wild hog, or a cow. Probably a deer on this little narrow country road we have found to take an enjoyable short cut home. We had been to the cowboy's house many times to hire him to work cattle and haul them to market. We had never gone past his house as we didn't know where the road lead to. We do now, it comes out in front of Cowboy Fellowship and turn right and go straight to our neighborhood. Earlier John was talking to the renter while I sat in the truck by the water tank that holds the household water sipping my coffee. He started calling me to come over there and see what Josie is doing. She was grazing. An exciting event for us as we had not seen her do this before. She is always standing by her Mama, running by her, or nursing. Now if we can see her drink water we would like that. For the ones who have ask about her eventual outcome, she probably will be taken to market at some point, but I'm not thinking about that yet. If I was younger and didn't have health problems and had plenty of money I would like to just keep her for a pet. So that has been our excitement for the day so far plus seeing a cottontail and looking at the renter's two watermelons growing by the rent house front yard. That little rabbit ate the rest of their garden. It's lucky and I'm glad they didn't shoot it.
