Mom, Dad, Fuzzy and I are wore out!
Really wore out!
It’s been a long week…I mean L.O.N.G.!
The wind wore all of us down. It also wore out all the plants. Not only that; it was a hot wind. Really hot! And full of dirt!
So we had …hot, dirty, wind.
But there were some fun things too. Like going to change water all the time. (That is my most favorite thing in the world to do.)
Up there I found a cool snake! Mom was putting the trash catcher into the ditch and a green snake was in there with a Mouse in his Mouth! The snake dropped the mouse and it floated now the water. The snake tried to wiggle up the side and couldn’t make it. So Mom and Dad helped the snake out. It was really fun!!!!
How cool is THAT!!!
Sammy brought Mom a GIANT mouse one morning. Just purrrfect for breakfast, Mom! Sammy purred.
“What a good kitty you are Sammy-Sam!” Mom gave Sammy lots of loves and pats. Fuzzy told Sam that he would have just snapped the thing in two and left it where he found it.
Sammy just purred back to Fuzzy… Yes, Fuzzy, you would have. But Mom wouldn’t know so you wouldn’t get any pets.
Shish, fumed Fuzzy. I didn’t think of that.
Then the wind blew down a HUGE branch! It was a giant job!
It took lots of work…Fuzzy and I helped Mom load all the little branches into the back of the pick-up. Then we rode with Bladen and Mom up the Coyote Hill to dump the broken limbs off into a big pile. Misty and the kids picked up the big chunks Dad cut off the HUGE branch, (Kelly was at work but when he came home from lunch he also helped).
When we got everything down to just the colossal limbs Dad came back down with the tractor. And Mom came back with the trailer.
Once we all got to the tractor part Fuzzy and I had to just wait until Mom and Dad to chain up the logs and load them onto the trailer. Then we rode up to the Coyote Hill with Mom in the pick-up pulling the trailer; Dad following with the tractor.
DONE! A huge pile to rot away on Coyote Hill!
After the last irrigation of the day Mom and Dad sat down outside with us and just gave a huge sigh, “Friday we are taking the day off,” Dad said.
Of course that really won’t happen, but the work will slow down to just what has to get done.
Sometimes a rest is necessary. You have a little rest today (everything will be there tomorrow)…those of us on our Colorado Farm plan on doing so!
