Today was a very good day

All in all, some nice things happened today. Art found a contraption in the barn (I call it that only because I have no clue what it is) that I think will make a nice planter.I put some plants in this old wheelbarrow we found out in a field.The fields of dandelions have turned to puff-thingies.I found a 4-leaf clover, and I wasn't even looking for one.Found a ladybug in the garden. With all these good luck omens, I thought I should check last night's lottery ticket ..... won $5.00.

Walter & Audrey, their daughter Shannon and son-in-law Russell, came up to collect some of their cows. Now, I know this is nothing new to those cow-pokes, but it is very exciting to us recently defected city slickers. I was all prepared to make a little movie .... had video camera in hand .... and then got busy talking and missed almost all of it. Audrey stayed behind with Art and I, while the other 3 got on their horses and went looking for the particular cows they were after. Next thing I know there was a lot of yelling in the distance and then the small herd came a running, cowboys in hot pursuit! By the time I got to a spot where I could get pictures, all there was to see was everybody's rear-ends as they headed into the trees at the bottom of the hill and out of sight. Dang, dang, dang, DANG!!!

Anyways, here's the best of what I was able to get. Audrey promises that there will be more opportunities. I hope so. It's not like I've never been around cows, or horses before, but this was right in our front yard!

Russell bringing up the right .....
Walter going down the centre .....and Audrey heading to meet them at the end of the road.Oh ya. And to top the day off, I got an invitation from Lane (Shannon and Russ's son) to come to see him perform in a school play tomorrow. It is either Hamlet or MacBeth (I can't remember) and he has the lead role. I told him I'll bring my video camera. He is graduating from Grade 7 to High School. I remember that transition. Seems like forever ago ..... seems like yesterday. Anyways, I'm honoured, Lane. Thanks for the invite.

DOH! That does look fun. That's a cool planter and your field of dandilions look beautiful.
