All Fun and Games!
It’s been hot and dry…well, not totally dry, we did have one day of rain. Mom went out and danced in it…I went with her, but the rain here on the western slope of Colorado is C.O.L.D., so I stood under the big cottonwood tree while Mom acted silly on the road by her garden.
Mom and I walked around the yard the next day where Mom petted all her flowers! Well, she didn’t really pet them, but she sure talked to them lots and grubbed around in the dirt once in awhile taking out a weed here and there.

Etta and I are bestest of friends so I try to go see her off and on. Although, I get along with all the dogs, ever last one of them.
Mom and Dad thought the little hen and her chicks were ever so cute…I, actually, thought the chicks were very ugly…I mean gangly, some feathers, baby heads…I just wasn’t interested in watching them hop around.

Then it was time to get back home, get some supper in our bellies and HEAD OUT to change water.
I am ALWAYS ready to go change water. Mom calls and I’m right there.
(Although, I do forget to ‘hear’ Mom or the four-wheeler sometimes when I’m out in the field. But we won’t discuss that right now. I mean, you see, I never get yelled at, but—sigh—I have HAD to walk all the way home, just because I forget to listen for Mom to call or the four-wheeler to start.)
Well, anyway…that’s how this whole adventure starts…Mom and Dad and I are out on the farm changing the water on the new alfalfa field, when……………
