Trumbleweed's Trainee


I’m enjoying the ranching these days.

OK, well, maybe I’m not “ranching” per se.  I’m more like the idiot ranch hand, kind of like Kevin Costner in Silverado.  In my defense, there is a learning curve when you’re dealing with an assortment of critters.  Trumbleweed has horses, donkeys, dogs and cats.  Dogs & cats are pretty easy but horses and donkeys can hurt you if you’re too stupid.

Luckily, I haven’t had the pleasure of the hard lessons.

Two lessons I have learned:

1.  The sun is bright & hot.

2.  Sunglasses seem to agitate the horses.

So that’s why I bought a hat at the tractor supply store today.

And if you’re wondering, I haven’t quit writing.
