Like a Dog

Dirt took me for a birthday ride on his motersickle.  Haven’t been for a ride ride in a long time (my aching hinney today is a testament to that fact).  I can’t even remember when it was that I took a quick ride to Yelm to get something at Sunbirds, I’m pretty sure that was … Continue reading »

Moving Right Along Updates

Orphan Calf The calf didn’t make it.  It failed to regained its sucking urge enough to handle the bottle in spite of whole bag of Lactated Ringers and tube feeding.  Bummer yes, but not a huge surprise.   My headache will go away, Bet’s watching Australian girls who are dumber farmers than us and laughin’, and … Continue reading »
