Other people have troubles, too. On a recent road-trip, we witnessed this one critter who refused to cross a highway.

Things really look good there Soapweed. I am envious of your green grass. The cattle look great as always.

Looks great. We had a very dry beginning of summer. Almost no rain in July which is usually one of our wettest months. The grass grew very slowly. Rain has picked up now and the herd is picking up quickly. The calf crop is looking good. In another month we ship them out to you guys as they can't stay in Florida and get very big.

Can't believe how green and lush your grass is! Wonderful to see.
Honking big calves, too!!!!!!!!
Your 'other' grandson, I believe, might have his boots on the wrong feet. Seems like that is one thing that never bothers kids, as
adults it drives us nuts. :D

Interesting pictures, Soap. Thanks for sharing.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
