The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-COWS!!!! COWS!!!!, Friday, December 2, 2022

Traalalalla—“Let’s go do the chickens with Mom, Boo Berry.”

“Okay, doaky.”

“Bye—I’ve got stuff to do.”

“Not me, I stick to Mom like glue.” Boo Berry Betty replied.

“Works for me.” TLC Cai-Cai hollered as he took off to do whatever it is he liked to do.

“Come on Boo Berry, we’ve got stuff to do.  This is a big day.”

Mom scooped me up, put me in the pick-up with Dad and we headed down to —I don’t know where.  I can’t see out, and I don’t like to look out.

Then we were there.

And so was a big truck and a HUGE truck Mom called a semi.





Shudder and shake

“You stay in here, Girly Girl”, Mom said, as she gave me a kiss on the nose.  “The cows have come!”

Wow! Those are HUGE ANIMALS!


It wasn’t long before we were heading back to the house.

There I met TLC — “HUGE ANIMALS HAVE ARRIVED ON THE FARM!”  I barked at him.

“I know,” he replied.  “Cows, they come this time every year.  We have to be careful around them and not get kicked.”

“I don’t plan on ever being around them,” I expounded to TLC Cai-Cai.  “Those feet are bigger than the both of us!”

“Yep, you are right.  Hey, race ya to the house.  Whoever gets there first gets to get in first!”  TLC took off in a mad dash.

“You can’t beat me!” Boo Berry Betty ran equal to TLC Cai-Cai arriving at the back door at the same time.

“You silly little creatures,” Mom reached down and petted us. “You can’t go in until I open the door.”

As soon as the door was open, TLC ducked under and flew right into the kitchen—Boo Berry right behind him

“What would I do if I didn’t have you crazy cute animals to liven up the day?” Mom laughed as we all tumbled into the kitchen.

“Whew, Boo Berry…thankfully there are no cows in the house!”

“Yes! What a terrible thought that is.  But we are safe in here.”

At the Tip of Last Light—Wednesday, December 6, 2017

The waning moon had just risen full, with an orange glow filling the twilight air in swirling colors

The sound of Canada Geese and Sand Hill Cranes echoing through the fading light, as they searched for safe places to spend the night when….

Two semi-loads of cows pulled up to unload.

The cows have arrived!  100 cows spilled out on-to the land…some running they were so glad to escape the huge traveling trailer.

This morning our farm is full of beautiful bovines!  It’s a huge joy to watch thes curious, graceful

Creatures for the rest of the winter.  They bring me happiness and the land is cleaned up from all the weeds and last year’s stalks and rich dried down alfalfa; the deposit of rich manure is a guarantee of good crops for next spring.

A win-win for all of us!

YAY! The Cows are HERE!
