Sunny Day, But Not For Long
Cold this morning and warm this afternoon. Another cold spell on the way. Seems every time we have a really cold night a baby calf is born. Two last night makes ten. I needed Theresa, Annie, or Wendy with me this morning. I don't know my birds except the common ones but there was a beautiful yellow bird across the stock tank while I was trying to coax the turtles to come eat breakfast. There was a Cardinal flitting around the tank too, but I know them and feed them here at home. I'll be happy when hunting season is over so we can drive all over the ranch to look for wild life while checking the fences. John leases the whole ranch for his cattle but out of respect for the hunters we stay away from the back forty and the far east side in case they are in their blinds. If there was any deer or wild hogs around we would probably scare them away.
