John was up early this morning to meet cowboy Jack and his daughter to vaccinate the calves. Everyone got their shot except Number 12's baby. The mama decided she didn't want them messing with her baby so she led it off in the brush. This afternoon John's daughter had a tire shop from town come out to air up the tractor tires so they can move them. Had to replace a tire on the David Brown. Some things to do to the John Deere. They've been sitting a long time. This afternoon we went driving south in to ranch country looking for Bluebonnets to photograph to no avail except one big bouquet of weeds, a herd of deer, and a flock of wild turkeys. We saw a sign on a small ranch with the name of the old (91 years) cowboy who passed recently. I'm sure it was his place as he has a long unusual name. Looked kind of lonely in there. I know he loved his place and his cows. We'll have to go a different direction soon searching for some pretty big fields of wildflowers.
