Buffalo Babys

Buffalo Gal's won't you come out tonight,
And dance to the light of the moon.

Mothers Day Poem

This poem was told to me by my 100 year old friend Vearl.
Made all the funnier by the teller.

She pulls me out of my nice warm cot
And sits me on the ice cold pot
And tells me to pee, which I can not.

Have you listened to any funny poems lately?

Road to Work

 This is the road I used to take to get to work. I think it's going to be quite some time before anyone travels on this stretch of road.
The geese & ducks like all of this water.

Big Tractor

This huge tractor is sitting out in our front yard.

 We're getting a few alfalfa fields planted and this is how they do it in these parts.
 These big John Deers pull things behind things, behind things. I have no idea how they get turned around?
 Scott, the owner is pulling a no till drill, fertilizer tanks, and his tool truck with this green machine. He will make one pass and get it all done at once.
 Scott can plant 55 acres an hour.
 He does say this rig has a drinking problem. It goes through 30 gallons of fuel an hour.

 I'm sure glad my car doesn't suck up that much gas!

Baby Buffalo

We have a new baby buffalo.

 I tried to get some pictures of the calve but the herd seemed to think I was the poperotzi and kept blocking the shot.
 I suppose you do have to be careful now a days. There are allot of crazy's out there.

Turn The page Tuesday

 My "Turn The Page Tuesday" book this month is  "At Home on Ladybug Farm" by Donna Ball
 I picked this book up in the bargain bin at Barns & Nobles, not realizing it is the second in a series.
Because I didn't read the first book I think I was missing a few things. This book has a good story line but seems to be lacking in some things (again could be because I didn't read the first book.

 A year after taking the chance of a lifetime, Cici, Lindsay, and Bridget are still trying to make a home for themselves on the newly renovated Ladybug Farm. Life in the Shenandoah Valley is picturesque, but filled with unexpected trials--such as the introduction of two young people into the ordered life the women have tried to build for themselves.

 As the walls of the old house reveal their secrets and the lives of those who have gone before begin to unfold, the cobbled-together household starts to disintegrate into chaos. And when one of their members is threatened by a real crisis, they must all come together to fight for the roots they've laid down, the hopes they share, and the family they've become.....
