Today I forgot to take the camera. I don't know what I would have got a picture of anyway ..... a cloud of dust. This was the most miserable branding I have ever been to. The wind was howling. The pen was about 6 inches of fine dust. And the owner set up the fire on the downwind end of the pen. I have blown enough dirt out of my nose to plant a good size garden. I was running the irons. Someone threw three big 10 inch rounds of wood on the fire. No coals makes for cold irons and tough branding. And of course the wife is out of town so when I came dragging home I still had to do chores. Got to love this ranching life. I took a shower. Now I am going to go flop in my recliner.
