Whoopie Ti Yi Yo
I am still thrilled when I see cows (and sheep) being moved from one pasture to another. I know that this is so rare now and could stop happening at any time so I soak up every second watching the cows go by.
Cows. Lots of cows. This, of course, is only a few of them. Some have already gone by, and there are a whole lot more behind these. Black, white, black and white, red, red and white, gray, brown - big mommas, yearlings, and this year's babies.
Owner of the cows. (Too cold to wear a cowboy hat.) No, that isn't an outhouse behind the horse. It's a pump house. Everyone irrigates out of the river which is just over the bank beyond the cows and pump house. (There used to be an outhouse just down the road to the left and up away from the river. It was on my cousins' property, and we used it when the power was out. It was kind of a scary hike when it was cold and dark.)
See the two Ponderosa pines (aka yellow pine) on either side of the driveway? My husband planted those the year we got married, actually before we were even engaged. They were about 6 inches tall then.
There goes the first batch. I so wanted to walk with them and really, there was no reason why I couldn't have - except that I was freezing.
Update two: I took out the song. It was covering a picture. Here is the link if you would like to listen to Whoopee TI YI YO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tJGz7lAmYs&feature=related
UPDATED: I was experiencing technical difficulties. Or, should I say that I was the technical difficulty? LOL
Either way, my camera didn't take all the pictures I thought it did, or some didn't download, or they were lost in the download.
Adobe Photoshop was misbehaving - as in not saving the pictures after I adjusted the size and renamed them. Luckily, the pictures are still on the camera. I HOPE.
And,the Internet connection was extremely slow.
I also had a video clip to share, but I couldn't (can't) figure out how to get it on here without signing my life away.
So this is what you get tonight. :)
