Weekend of October 8th, 9th

Mooove it on over, humans! In the middle of the night we were invaded by a small herd of the Jackson’s cows. I had foolishly left the gate open and, I suppose, our ranch looks appealing to the inscrutable cattle mind. Fortunately we had professional help available. Once we let him outside, Snap promptly hearding our bovine trespassers together and moved them back out of the gate. Then, looking particularly pleased with himself, he came back inside the ranch house, flopping down on the floor with a satisfied sigh.

In other news our weekend was a rather social one. We had dinner with the Stammers on Friday night and with Ron, Dahlia, and the Jackson Family on Saturday. On both nights the temperature plummeted, but all the same we insisted on eating outside. After all, its only going to get colder from here on out. We also continued our work on painting the office, “air-balling” its roof with sealant as well as pulling down a layer of trim paint. I also began skirting the office with plywood for the Winter. We should have our wood burning stove functioning within the next few trips as well; a project I have been looking forward to completing for several years now.
