Long way

Postby jodywy » Sun Mar 26, 2017 1:19 pm

Well a few of you know The Trust has sold the home ranch and settled up. My Mom and My wife and I have bought 2 new places side by side . On Cabin creek road, Not sure the address is Moorcroft, Carlie, or Oshoto as all three show up on the old papers we got on the main place... The other small place connects up on the high part of the ranch. We hauled one load of sheep and horse tack over and put in a barn not being used. The old owners are having an auction April 8th. We moving my Daughter , SIL and New Baby over the 11... OH I BECAME A GRAND PAW LAST SUNDAY March 19.Then hope to have sheep shared and take them over and let the kids lamb them out. Started calving here, got trucks lined up to take some of the machinery over. Will take cows and calves end of may. Need to buy a few more pairs and a little cavy of good gentle saddle horses....... Snow melting fast, mud is deep , feeding extra hay just to help bed the cows... :mrgreen:

Our daughter lives near there, Jody. She's ranch raised and I am sure she would help you any way she could. She darn sure knows about cattle and horses. Not much about sheep tho. :wink:

Oh wow. Let the fun begin!! You are in for a great new experience. There is just NOTHING like GRANDKIDS! I have heard you have kids to have grandkids and I believe it. Sadly, I only have one of each...one kid, one grandkid. (who is now 6' tall and 22 years old. They DO grow up too fast.) Enjoy them while you can and cherish every minute! You and Sue will make wonderful grandparents. So great you will be close by.

Congratulations! Love the photo. And be sure to take LOTS of them. Babies change so darn fast the first couple of months, and only a little less so after that. Probably don't know you well enough to tease about baby resembling you, at least the similar hair lines, but can't resist. Just surprised FH missed that opportunity!

I noticed the resemblance, but didn't know how to say it. You did it better than I could have! :D

I am sure the move will be exciting, rewarding and stressful in varying degrees and different orders every day. Best of luck.
As for the Grandchild, you could not have picked a better day. I have heard that very many extremely tremendous people are born on March 19th. It is a perfect day for a birthday. :wink:
