This Month's Update
But hopefully my three or four followers will enjoy the few posts that make their way here.
I wrote a Wedding Card Poem for a friend who ... got married ... this month. Feel free to copy and paste for your own wedding cards.
Your wedding day has come
Your dream God has fulfilled
You now begin your life
With a man that God has willed
May your lives be full
Of happiness divine
And God give you children
Of his own design
Through happiness and trial
Through glad or trying days
May God give you His strength
And you give Him your Praise
Well, I am now milking Pita the Longhorn/Watusi cow. I am currently getting one quart a day. It is more than enough to fulfill our cooking and general consumption needs. I think the attitude Pita has is such a blessing, though I did have to duck a few well aimed kicks the first few days. But she has calmed down a remarkable amount. Although I could do without the constant bellowing if I'm ten minutes or so late.
Jennifer has started a most adorable cross stitching project. I will post a picture once she's done with it. It uses ribbons in some of the stitches for a "3D" effect. I am working on a navy blue shawl for around the house this winter. I am crocheting it in double crochet and transferred over to triple twice in the bottom corner for a few lines just for looks. I will also post a picture of that as soon as I finish it. But it will be awhile, because I want to make it pretty big.
I went to a Longhorn class with Dad on Saturday. It was a class working up to a Inspection
"certification". In the class you learn the main characteristics of a true Texas Longhorn. And after you have approved a cow, they go on to DNA testing if the owner wants it CTLR (Cattleman's Texas Longhorn Registry, I think) certified. But a Inspector is just a first filter to single out all the 'impostor' cows. It's fun. I like being around cattle, and around people that know cattle so well such as Debbie Davis, Frank Sharp and Sonny Detmer. Thanks, guys, for the learning experience. I plan on attending the next class in San Antonio, Lord Willing.
Well, I'd better go. Lord Willing I will be posting a article on Rasing Rabbits sometime soon. I wrote it for a magazine, but never sent it in. Maybe I will someday, but for now I hope you folks enjoy it.
Till Next Time,
