I just ran my pen and my tally book through the washing machine. Nothing left except the cover. Now I have some shirts with pretty red spots on them. That's a subject cowboy poets can write about, has probably happened to nearly everyone.

can't help the tally book but maybe if the ink was ballpoint, spray it with hairspray (I'm sure YOU have some around the house :wink: and put it through the washer. It works best if the shirt hasn't gone thru the dryer but it might help. maybe...
If it doesn't you can use the spray for a new bouffant hairdo :lol:

Oh Clarence,
I did the same thing to Roscoes' book too. We dried it out, but the ink was smudged real bad.. Everything was lost that he kept in there. What corn was planted where and how many acres.. parts and numbers. Cows and calves what was what and what it looked like...There is nothing worse than losing the information written in those tally books. The only thing I can think of that would come close is losing your favorite recipe...

This past spring when hauling cows and calves to grass-I was using a clip board with paper and pen-- well thought I had it far enough under the fence so the calves would not check it out--well no I did not. THis was a group of about 100 prs and this was toward the end of the day(who knows what else I did) so had lots of info on it- and they ate the paper-left the board and pen. LUcky I could go back in the calving date book and get numbers that went to certain pastures that day. No one else around here knows of my little error. Oh well---

Saddle Tramp already has, as have lots of others who I've heard. I personally don't use one anymore. I write it all on the calender. But then, I don't ear tag either.
