Winkn Blinkn n Nod

"The boys are happy."

Three bulls were taken out of wet corrals (or wherever they were) and put onto the grass in our pasture.

I walk out to the fence every day and lean over it, tell them how handsome they are, and pretty much get ignored.

I don't go over the fence when they're in there, except to take this photo; and there's an electric fence inside the other fence, so I kid myself that it is any protection if I get behind it fast. It's not; a pissed-off animal this size would walk right through it. Same with the permanent fence I suppose, as far as that goes. Anyway, I'm nervous around these big beasts, but am told they're more scared of me than the other way around. Good, but I don't care.

So we're wary of each other.


  1. Your life looks so friggin' idyllic!!! We should swap one day. Yours seems to be the secret fantasy life I often envision for myself.

    LOVE the tarot!!


  2. It is pretty idyllic, Barbara, compared to times when I lived in towns and worked in other people's offices. Now I'm out in my hometown country and working from home as a freelancer - which is the fantasy life I always envisioned for myself. So just don't ever give up that fantasy! In my experience, these dreams do come true.
