Surprise Guests

I've been over to the farm for a couple of days. We're continuing to work around the place. This morning we had a few "surprise visitors".

If you could have seen the whole thing it would have been hilarious. There were 19 kinda tame cows that had gotten out of the pastures on down and across the road from they must have just come up the first place they could and came into the front drive, looked around and found fencing everywhere so they just ran around the side and back of the yard until they couldn't go any farther. We hadn't heard a thing but were in the back living room assessing paint on the walls with the window blinds up and there they were. Suddenly Curry yelled, "those cows are in the YARD, not the pasture" and he headed out running. Anyway, he blocked them in the side yard and yelled at me to move my Explorer in beside the Blazer so they couldn't get out.

I am not experienced in cow herding at all so Curry told me to be quiet and don't make any sudden moves. Now that can give you pause when a bunch of cows are looking your way as your husband is in the house calling the guy who leases the pastures. He found the people (as they didn't belong to the guy who leases our place)and they came right out and we got them in the back pens until they could be loaded on a trailer this afternoon. They are kinda tame according to their owner thank goodness and didn't spook. I took a couple of pictures...Here's one along with a collage of pictures my daughter in law took last week and sent me. ..and another of my son, grandson, and Curry taken at the same time. Looks like life is going to be interesting.


  1. Funny story... great pics! A new adventure every day, right?

  2. Yes, I believe it will be.

  3. Cheryl, what a beautiful place for getaways. And stories!!

  4. More than a getaway, Martha. Maybe moved over there by the end of the year. BUT first, I have to have a studio to move my current studio to. With the aunt in the apt, I don't know where or when that will be. We can't kick her out.

  5. Ha Ha Ha! I grew up on a farm, so I know the story! Boy that takes me back a lot of years!

    Thanks for sharing your adventures and for commenting on my blog today.

    Enjoy the moo cows!

  6. Hi Kim....well, I didn't and don't have much experience with this kind of thing. But, in my old age, it appears I may have an adventure or two in store.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.
