This is the way it looked the day we hauled them to Vale. Pretty foggy the whole way. If we get weather 90 days after a fog like the old saying we will get a storm about mid March. Should be a safe prediction.
We hauled the heifers up there with the trailer. It took three trips. It is about 45 miles. Note the silage pile in the background. This feedlot is fairly small, I think around 7,000 head and they mostly background replacement heifer calves.
Then I got a call one night asking what I was doing the next night. I said not much of anything. They wanted to know if I wanted to start my acting career? They wanted a Santa Claus for the local school program. So I practiced my HO HO HO's for a day and headed to the school program.
Then we went to the preschool Christmas program at Union Center. We had two grand kids in the program.
Then the kids came over to make candy and cookies for Christmas. Then decorate cookies, which is the most fun. Then they helped decorate Grandma's tree. All the decorations somehow ended up in one spot right in front. Then they had to pose with the tree.
My Sister from Arkansas is coming up and stopping to bring my Mom who lives in Watertown along out for Christmas dinner. So they will be here a few days. Our boy Marshall is coming out for Christmas. He lives at Edgemont, but we don't see him much. Sounds like the weather will be nice, maybe a little snow.
