My sister sent me photos from last night and the lighting storm she could see going on outside. She said there will be another one tonight. It has been a long time since I have watched light shows like this one. We rarely get lighting. My hat is off to all of you who live in places that produce storms like this. I really do like weather. I think I do because I never have any weather. I think though secretly I would like to be a storm chaser.
My sister has had the job of going through my Mom and Dad's things. So she keeps sending things she runs across. Today I got a couple of boxes with old photos in it. This is the very, long time ago Kim. I loved showing animals and this was one of my favorite steers. It was the year that the Cincinnati Reds won the world series. I was a big fan so of course I named my steer Cincinnati Red, The big red machine.
He was a heavy weight steer and when I was trying to halter break him as a calf, he dragged me all over the place. I never thought I would ever get him halter broke. I loved him though and I loved working with him and I was so glad that my sister found this picture because he was one of my favorites. Now if she could just find the picture of me and Goldie. Goldie, I delivered as a calf and he was my last show steer. That was one of my favorites things to do as a young woman was get a wild calf and turn it into a mild mannered animal. I loved everything about the cattle industry. I really did think I would grow up and be a ranchers wife. Who knew that when I fell it would be for a young, computer programmer with dreams that I came to share as my own.
Funny thing about life isn't it?
Okay, who knew I would be called Farm Girl. :)
I hope you have a lovely Thursday,
