Friday chores done, ready for a road trip!
I woke early this morning, and since I have to head up to Abilene today and see Rand's dad, I got up and went out to feed. Rio and Jenny were at the gate this morning. Once he knows I am here, he knows he gets fed earlier than usual. It's kind of nice to have someone depend on you, and know there is consistency when you are there. I mean he gets fed regularly, twice a day, but usually later in the morning and earlier in the afternoon, as those are the hours Bert is here. Jenny took her treat from my hand this morning, and even allowed a little nose rub before I dumped her feed. Simple pleasures--for me, maybe Jenny, hard to know if she cares. Rio, on the other hand, is my boy and he loves his petting and hand feeding treats.
I got the saw from the shop and went out to saw off a few dead limbs that are hanging too low by the shop and keep threatening to poke me in the eye if I am not paying attention. I have a few more to do, but I settled for those in the pathway this morning.
I need the shower in the back bathroom, but my bro and his wife are sleeping in the back bedroom, so I am trying to be patient until everyone else gets up. And now, I hear folks laughing and the coffee pot rattling, so someone is in the kitchen! I have to get ready and on the road to Abilene for my other half of the family duties, and about an hour of New Deal research on a couple of places there. Better get to it, daylight's burning.
