A Good Day

 Deryl showed up first thing this morning to AI a cow and a heifer for us -

Deryl slept in this truck last night after breeding cattle till (I swear he said) 3 am - he must have one understanding wife because I know he is on the road breeding all the time - so Chris made us all breakfast - I know right what a great guy - sausage, egg & cheese on wheat toast - he is a good cook!

Got us a little True Grit and some Grand Master today!

After breeding we loaded up the rest of the girls up and moved them over to the pasture with the others!

There was lots of frolicking

and reuniting!

Then it was off to the Blue River Valley Antique Machinery Show at the Shelby County Fairgrounds and the first pedal pull of the season!

I was informed that this would be his final year for pedal pulling - his legs were getting too long and he was getting too old but that he wanted to "go out with a bang"-

which is obviously off to a good start!

Of course if you are in Shelbyville at lunch time why not eat at Compton's Cow Palace and you can't eat there without topping off the meal with a turtle sundae!

Then home - which I then accidentally took a nice long nap - felt good and much needed!

Then off to check the cows once more and a quick impromptu photo shoot for Casey -

where she totally photo bombed poor Sampson,

acted goofy and wouldn't focus for me,

But was mostly just plain beautiful!

Homemade pizza for supper with everyone around the table - it just don't get much better!


  1. These pictures are just HER, through and through. The last one is really good!

  2. Your last line is so true. I am so happy for your great life Jent. Awesome pics awesome family just awesome:) B

  3. Sounds like a great day, Jent!

    Love the picts of your daughter. Sometimes we just need to be silly, it's good for us.

    And sometimes we come to the day when we feel the need to move on. I like the plan to "go out with a bang". It shows character.

    Yea for a good nap!

  4. I don't even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don't know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already ;) Cheers!
