I took as many pictures as I could then handed the camera off to my son, who's job was to write down newly tagged calves and any cow tags that had to be replaced. Didnt think it was such a big job, but apparently he didnt have time to take any pictures haha. Altho he did do a great job keepin records, I can't complain. Here's the few pictures I did get out of the day.

Nice pictures, jersey lilly. Ranching has different variables in different parts of the country, and it is interesting to see the similarities and the differences. Thanks for the tour. Keep the pictures coming.

HaHaHa sw,
Guess the music will hafta wait until I git the "all year" cd put together and ready to mail out as Christmas Cards. Ewwweeee Wonder if I'll remember how to do that? I'm kinda lookin forward to puttin that one together, I've been real contious about taking my camera with me everywhere I go for the sole purpose of getting a "whole years worth" of pictures for my cd.

Soapweed,
It still amazes me how different we all do things. Never get tired of lookin at your pictures. You asked the other day about "where'd I find so many trees?" Alot of people dont realize that East Texas has lots of forests and is "terminally green" (unless we are in a drought) lol But most think the whole state is like what you see in a Texas Western where it's nothin but Mesquite, dirt, tumbleweeds and WIND. I grew up in west texas.....wheww glad I found the trees.

Did you ever get time to use that program that you have that was suppossed to make it easier to put the music to the pictures and burn the CD? I have looked at several of them but have not gotten one yet, I want to find one that really does work. You should have been in Deadwood, I did manage to put poetry to pictures, but on the old VHS :D

My Other computer that has that program downloaded on it is still at the computer dr's. I guess I'm gonna hafta just break down and download it onto this laptop, as bad as I hated to, since it will run slower. maybe when the weather cools off some and there's not so much to do I"ll get busy with it and fiddle to learn how to use it. It's one that will put the pictures and music on a cd that can be played in either your cd drive of computer or in you dvd player on television.

Lilly,

Mr Deep Freeze is Also Mr Deep Hip, nice calf.

I have to adjust myself when looking at Brahma crosses, they aren't the breed of choice up here, but I see the definite need for some ear in your country. Nice hips and deep calves are nice to see anywhere,

sw, I'm trying to learn how to use the Roxio program to put music to the deadwood pictures on a CD but it is slow goin cause I'm no computer whiz.
So many things to click on. Went to the library today to try to find some appropriate music for the background but not sure I can stick it on anyway :???: :? The program won't work on my computer so have to beg time on my husband's magic box and that's like pulling teeth.

nr,
the easiest way I've found to find music to put with my picture cd's is to play and copy the music from a cd of my own to my computer using windows media player. After that you can save it to the program you use along with your pictures. Easier said than done, I had to "call for help" from my kiddo. I know your not supposed to reproduce music burned from cd's, but I'm not doing it for profit, just my own personal use. (is that bad??) lol
the first cd I made with pictures and music that I shared with sw, I used Windows Movie Maker that came on my computer from the factory.
