Saturday (8/21). I had to run to Bryan to get a Covid test so they would proceed with my lovely colonoscopy on the 24th. While I was getting my brain swabbed David was rounding up the cows to separate 2 young females born last year to trade with a guy coming in that afternoon. It was an even swap. 2 females for two females. Well these little gals weren't so happy about being taken from their momma so they bellowed all night.
Sunday (8/22). Lilley as usual woke David up at 5:30am for breakfast. She hasn't retired apparently. Anyway David looked out the window and I heard him go "Damn It, well crap!". "I'm like what's the matter?" Apparently the new little black calf got through the barb wire fence out by the drive way and was walking in the flower bed right outside our front door. David kept thinking their cries sounded close and that was because they were..
David was gonna need help herding the calf so I got up and slid on my clothes. He was worried about me and my stupid knee but there was no way he was gonna get that calf back where it belongs without the other cows getting out. Team work. We did it less that 10 minutes. That will never happen again. LOL
The two new calves are in-separate able. So I've named them Thelma and Louise.. One is red and the other black.
That evening the moon was full so I went out to snap a picture. It never looks the same as it does to the naked eye when I take the picture. I try. But something I didn't notice until I was putting the pictures on the computer is that a line of fog was low and cutting through the trees. You can see the small tree to the right of the trailer in front but you can only see the top of the trees further away. It was weird looking.
I behaved honest. We left here and drove into Jacksonville, TX to find the Commerce Street Draft House for food. He got a beer and I GOT tea. I ordered their fish and chips while he got a hamburger. The food was really good. The place wasn't crowded but it was a Thursday. They have live music on Friday's it looked like so I'm guessing it would be crowded them. We drove back to the B&B and as told the gates would be closed only the code to the gate wasn't working. Oh Great! So David punched in the code several times and while doing so a resident drove up behind us. She asked us a few questions and proceeded to tell us her clicker for the gate didn't work either but thankfully her code did work so we got in. We stopped at the night clerks room to let them know the situation at the front gate.
