A Country Winter Bouquet
After being gone from Wednesday afternoon to Friday afternoon I had to have my country "fix" early this morning. Our cold snap has come and gone. It's just nice weather, not too hot and not too cold. As we pulled out of our neighborhood onto the main street there was a dead doe in front of a business. We have seen wild animals in our neighborhood but that is a first on the main street. Poor deer must have been hit by a car or one of the big oil field trucks. The renters in the farm house have been moving. They were supposed to be out by yesterday. The judge ruled in John's favor and John gave them two more days due to the cold weather we were having at that time and the holidays. There were lots of ducks on the stock tank. They would fly away when we drove over the tank dam then return until we drove over again. We could hear lots of shooting across the farm to market road. No pond over there so we wonder if they were shooting at turkeys. Too many shots for deer. We found where the wild hogs had been rooting in a large area. I put out rabbit pellets but it isn't near as much fun since I found the cattle seem to be getting them. A cow had even broke off a piece of the cement where I put the pellets. The cattle fared the cold weather and look fat and sassy. We don't have barns for cattle down here as there is so little cold weather it wouldn't be cost effective. They find a low spot or get in the brush. We couldn't drive around the way we like because of the hunters so we just came home and ate a piece of Leah's Red Velvet cake.
