The snow and the wind make interesting patterns with the snow.  We have been getting slight snow showers and way to much wind for the past few days making life tough.  It supposed to keep it up and get really cold for the next few days.  Loads of fun.  Taken 1/17/2008.

It's amazing how bad some of the springs around here can look and smell but the cattle still think it's really good water.  I guess when you live in this dry of country stinky, smelly water is better than none at all.  Taken 10/11/2007.

I see a neighbor of mine is trying a different way of weaning calves.  instead of pulling the calf off the cow and separating the two, they put this fancy nose jewelry on which keeps the calf from nursing the cow and more "naturally" weans the calf.  The claim is that this is less stressful on the calf and the cow.  I don't know how well it works or not.  It's interesting to see though.  Taken 10/22/2007.

This old tractor sitting by what is called the Cook Camp has always intrigued me. There are a few old tractors laying around these hills but this one has always fascinated me.  Taken 10/16/2007.

The Sarpy coal mine drag line at work.  While delivering bulls home yesterday I got really close to it.  I was so close that the hills in front of it blocked the view so this is the best shot I got.  Damn the thing is loud.  How anybody can live close to it is beyond me but the place I delivered to sure enough does.  Taken 10/8/2007.

I noticed that the trees are starting to turn a little bit.  It seems a little early to me.  I was wondering if they were turning because it was time or are they turning because it is dry?  I'll probably never know the answer.  Taken 9/2/2007.

The red, smoky sky when the fires were so bad and the smoke was hanging in here bad.  It has cleared up some now.  I won't complain.  Taken 8/15/2007.

The wild plums are ripe again and there is a lot of them and they are very sweet this year.  No, My Darling Wife doesn't make jelly out of them.  We eat so little jelly that it's not worth the time nor effort.  Taken 8/16/2007.
