Now here is sight that in the middle of summer can really get a persons heart going.  Hell, even in the fall as dry as it a sight like this makes you worry.  The problem is it is not a fire.  they are blasting at the Sarpy Mine.  Whenever you see a black cloud in that direction in the summer you have to wait and see if it is a fire or the mine blasting.  Usually you know it's the mine because of the time they blast but sometimes they change their schedule and take a person by surprise.  Taken 11/2/2007.

The other day we trailed the cows out of the hills a little closer to home.  Here you see them following the trail home.  It was a beautiful day for doing it.  Overall it's been beautiful for quite a while.  Warm and dry, damn the bad luck.  Taken 11/2/2007.

My Darling Wife got this picture the other day.  It really struck me.  It really tells you how different people see things.  I looked at the same thing and never considered taking a picture.  She sees it and snaps a wonderful shot.    Taken 11/4/2007.

It was just a beautiful day and seemed to me like a beautiful shot.  The only way it would have looked better is if it had been raining.  Taken 10/10/2007.

The way the line of clouds had formed across the sky really caught my attention.  It was quite the sight, the picture doesn't do it justice.  Taken 9/2/2007.

We cleaned out the windmill pasture the other day and this is all we could find.  Everything else moved out to the better grass towards home on their own.  Lucky or not is the question.  We found 13 critters while gathering on the 13th of the month.  I'm not worried but some people might be.  Taken 9/13/2007.

We are gathering up the yearling replacement heifers to work them.  My girls were holding up the yearlings in  a corner when I rode up.  The picture with the so big sky was really intriguing.  Taken 8/22/2007.

I finished baling the last of the alfalfa on the Sarpy side yesterday.  Fifteen hundred and thirty four bales of hay.  Just over 2 ton to the acre.  I'm very happy about that.  You can't really see it all well but there are bales all scattered through this picture as far as you can see.  The Hired hand started cutting the grass hay yesterday.  If anything it is heavier than any of the alfalfa was.  Forge ahead.  Taken 7/3/2007.

Can you say, "not haying weather?"  That's definitely the case here.  Cloudy, cool, and high humidity.  I haven't been having much luck putting up hay.  I think I am going to have to start using the diesel to turn the windrows to get them to dry.  I am not looking forward to it but you have to do what is necessary to get things done.  Taken 6/26/2007.

I was trying to take a picture of the moon and the way the morning light was reflecting off of the grass.  It didn't work to well but the colors and light were intriguing to me.  I was branding at a neighbors this day and the country is the Tullock Creek country.  The open, treeless look is what a lot of the Tullock country is like as compared to the pine trees and Sarpy Country.  Taken 6/3/2007.

Ole very impatiently waiting for me.  I was gathering some drys and they were in such rugged country it was unsafe to get a horse into it.  I had to hike in and get them out a foot.  I hobbled Ole up so I could do it.  He was ready to get going again when I got back.  Taken 5/27/2007.
