A Friday Evening Happening
Grandma J had the pleasure of chauffeuring her granddaughter to her "hands on" driving class early Friday evening. When I arrived at my daughter's house, JJ was like so ready for some excitement. Yes, even though it's way out of my way to bring him all the way back home, and yes even though these junkets increase the size of Grandma J's carbon footprint, I love our mini road trips.
I pass several cattle ranches on my way to just about everywhere I go around here.....I don't pay much mind to them. Most are big black cows or Texas Longhorns. Once in a while I see ducks and geese lolly gagging amongst the cattle. That's a picture I hope to capture one day.
This evening, I approached this ranch with a weathered barn and two cows.....and decided to stop. The road is just a two lane FM route, so I pulled off onto the wide shoulder. Right away JJ leaped to the passenger window....and at the same time, the two cows took notice of Grandma J's car with a wild and crazy dog growling and shaking like a leaf. Grandma J told JJ they were big girl doggies..... The rest is in pictures. And don't you just love the way Grandma J jumps from first person to third person in the same paragraph?
