Night Time Trip To The Ranch
Wow! All settled in for the night. John asleep and me on the computer. The Sheriff's department messed all that up calling to say some of John's cows are out east of Charlotte. You think they meant Charlotte, North Carolina? No I know they meant Texas. Find my shoes, get a flashlight, get the keys to the truck. Find the Sheriff's department telephone number. John is ranting it can't be my cows they aren't hungry. I burned pear for them this morning. I was in the middle of printing something and couldn't get the printer to turn off. Geeze Louise. I say I'm driving. I don't know who's driving at night makes me more nervous. Take off on a wing and a prayer driving slowly on the shoulder when we get even with the ranch. Never did find any cows out. John says wanna go to the Dollar Store? A new one just opened in his little home town. Yep that's all I need to go shopping and buy something I probably don't need. So we head back searching the side of the farm to market road as we go. Still no cows that we could see. Someone probably put them in. The Sheriff's Department will put them in the property the cows are closest to and they don't give a flip who don't like it. John will have to check his cattle tomorrow to see if they are all home and then check the fences along the road. I tell him you are just going to have to sell the cows and give up we're too old to have to jump out of our jammies to search the road ways. Well he says I want to ranch two more years.
