About the only thing that DOES grow reliably well here are hot peppers. Summers here are like Mexico. Winters are like Siberia. This is where Mother Nature has her tantrums.

Aw, c'mon, that was from Christmas Vacation, where Chevy Chase is in the department store being flustered by Elle McPherson (I think that's her name). Yes, I have seen too many movies. Don't EVEN get me started on Monty Python, LOL!

Good luck, John.

The funniest thing is a young rooster learning to crow. The first time I heard one, I thought someone was strangling a goose or something! ROFL! Now whenever I hear them I stop what I'm doing and just smile.

I made the BEST (and stupidest) dinner last night. It's been cold, and I was craving starch and carbs, so I sliced up some potatoes and par-boiled them, then made a nice cream sauce with homemade chicken stock as the liquid, added some re-hydrated dried veggies and herbs, chopped up celery and ham, mixed it all together and stuck it in the oven for a while to meld together. It was SOOOOOO good, but we both ate way too much (because it was soooo good!), and ended up having a sugar crash right about the time we had to go out for evening chores. Not to mention, I ate until I was about to bust, instead of stopping when I was no longer hungry. Of course, I had to go fetch the calf last night because he wasn't ready to go to bed yet, so I ended up walking "a bit" and part of the time he had me in a jog, trying to head him off before he made it back to the trees. Luckily, he's still a bit spooky, so I jumped up and down and waved my arms and scared him back toward the barn. The older cows are wise to my ways, and my crazy act doesn't usually work on them, but he's still young and stupid, so I finally got him in.

Anyway, I probably gained five pounds last night, and we do have leftovers, but tonight I will dish up HALF what I did last night and hopefully I'll still be able to walk afterward.
Does the calf have a name? If not, I vote Oliver.

I wish you would have strapped a cam somewhere so we could all, here, could enjoy the fun you were having!

I have a calf story, too! My calf was my friends "steer". I got the opportunity to farm sit while she was showing her horses. Said calf/steer got on the wrong side of the fence and I had to go fetch Buster. It wasn't funny when I got him on the correct side of the fence. He wanted to play!

There was nothing to do but bluff him. The house was never so far away than it was that day.
