We have very few rules here at the ranch but one we REALLY try to enforce is, NO politics and NO religion, everyone is entitled to their own particular point of view and their own particular belief……BUT, something ticking away in my head just wont let me ignore it, it’s this “end of the world stuff “. I keep imagining people all over the world not paying their mortgage, credit card and utility bills, ( well, no need to if the world isn’t going to be as we know it tomorrow). I imagine people all over the world watching the ground for THE earthquake and the sky for THE storm….Well, Greg and I are preparing for our day at the barn, I have washed and dried my hair but not for any particular special event and two steaks are marinating in the cooler….hopefully not for our last meal and we have paid our monthly bills sincerely trusting that 6pm will not be the beginning of the end
OK, I have got that off my chest and currently our biggest issue is the arrival of our calves. I will be going to England for two weeks in July to visit my boys, their respective little families and my sisters and brothers. Amazingly, out of the 365 days in the year that we could have selected for my trip, we have, we think, chosen the due date. Greg is currently checking his records…no, we are good, Molly and Dolly are due on the 21st of July so I’ll be here for the event…but leave Greg to the increased workload.
Last evening we had two little visitors to the barn. It is always a lot of fun to watch the reaction of the children to the huge Shires as they gently check out their pint sized guests, their excitement at the chickens pecking and scratching and just how gently the little ones petted Chance the bottle fed lamb. Thank you Marcie and Brian for bringing your two little boys to entertain us…we love it when the children come !
Well, yesterdays sun has gone, I am a little pink and almost certain that I would be a little sore… but I got away with it and no regrets because today we have rain, again !!! It is time to get ready for another day at the barn. Take care, keep safe, M
