Keepin up

Here's our Christmas tree in the wild. We go every year and cut our own. We are making it into our family tradition. We had a great day getting this tree. We went and feed some cows.    I showed Sharon a little more of the ranch.
  My boss and his Dad bought a team of Halflinger mares. So we have been feeding with the team. It's fun learning how to harness and drive. Im doing this posting from my new phoneso I hope works.
Until next time take care.

20 weeks

      I got the day off yesterday to go with Sharon to the Doctor's. It was the big ultra-sound day. We could have found out the sex of the baby but I really dont want to know until the baby is born. I think that it is the biggest suprise and present a person can have . We have a very active baby. He/She was doing a lot of swimming and moving. The Bean gave us a couple thumbs up in the pictures. It really is just amazing to see our baby in the womb. Sharon has a beautiful glow about her.
     After the Doctor appointment we went to the AT&T store in Douglas. We didnt know there was an AT&T store there. We decided to upgrade our phones. The store was busy so we went to the pawn shop but the car wouldn't start. So we went to O'Reilly Auto to see if they could help us test the battery. They were really helpful they sent a guy to help us. When we were looking for the problem a guy came out of the AT&T store and helped us find the problem. The starter went bad. 178,000 miles on my wifes Jeep. John said he lived just up the street and if I wanted he would tow us up there to change out the starter. We towed it up and he helped me change it out. It sure was nice to have tools and a jack and lights to work on the Jeep. Sharon and his son watched tv in the warm house. Im so glad I has there with Sharon when her Jeep broke down.
     Today we preg checked cows about 350 of them ol'grouchy rips.

19 weeks

   Here's my bride at 19 weeks. Sharon looks amazing carrying our baby!!
Yesterday the horse club I belong to had a demo put on by a clinician. Its always interresting to watch how someone works their horse's. We had our club meeting and some how I got elected Vice Prez. I've never held an office or done something like this. So I don't what I'm getting into. But I think it will be good for me.

   We did our last shipping yesterday. Shipped about about 260ish calves. Then in the afternoon we poured on and gave shots to the heifer calves we held back as replacements for next year.
   One of the guys who works for the ranch wanted to start a mens Bible study. So we started last week. We will meet once a week till we get really busy again then sounds like we will met when we can. Its nice to get together and visit and for me to learn more about the Bible.
   We went to set a rubber tire tank this afternoon. The tractor is making a funny noise in the rear end. So we brought it back to the ranch and I'll take the other tractor over so we can finish doing the dirt work and set the tank.
   Looks like we are gonna get some cold weather this weekend with snow, 1-3 inches.  
until next time take care

   Monday was my brides brithday.... We celebrated by going to Cheyenne and just hanging out and doing what Sharon wanted to do. We met up with a friend of Sharon's and were gonna have lunch but she had to leave earlier than planned. So Sharon and I just wondered through the mall. We got Sharon a new wedding band. It's a nice little Black Hills gold band. Sharons fingers are starting to swell form the baby. Sharon loves wearing a wedding ring so................. We got her a pretty ring for her Birthday. We  are 18 1/2 weeks along now with the baby. So almost half way!! I can't wait to hold the baby.
    We went into a fabric store... I know imagine that being married to a quilter. Sharon got a bunch supplies she needs for making stuff for the Christmas Bazaar in town. But we got my some silky polyester so Sharon will make a neck rag or wild rag for me. Pretty nice huh?

We went to the AT&T store and looked at new phones. We are up for new one's. Mine is starting to piss me off. The screen is just to small and I have a hard time reading stuff. Sharon want's to just upgrade. We use our phone for lots of stuff. We did upgrade our aircard it's how we get internet here. The new deal is called a Hotspot and we can now run both computers at the same time. Pretty nice once we got the bump's ironed out. The tec who sold us the Hotspot didn't change our plan so it didn't work until this afternoon. When Sharon finaly got it going. Love my wife!!
   We were gonna go shopping at Wal-mart but we just were having to nice of a day to go there and do the monthly shopping. We are really glad we did. Sharon will go to Scottsbluff later this week and do that shopping. We wandered around Barns and Nobles. Looking at books. Man I saw bunch of books I wanted.
   Here's my new horse El Gato after a day of work. He's looking for his grain and to get the saddle off his back.
We are shipping cows tomorrow. I'm gonna ride my horse G. My other bay mustang horse. Haha.
Until next time take care
