We went to church this evening, and when the service was over, several of us stepped outside to visit in the cool of the evening. One lady looked up and said, "Now that is what I call a pretty moon. You should take your favorite gal the long way home tonight." She went off to visit with some other members of the fairer sex, and her husband told me an amusing tale. Quite a few years ago, it was their wedding anniversary and they decided to take a trip to Rapid City. They had three little girls, and were hoping that the wife's parents could babysit the girls at home while the young couple enjoyed a week-end out on the town.

When the older couple found out the destination, they suggested that they could just go along and make it a family outing. The young folks were good natured and thought that it would be okay. When they arrived in Rapid City, the father-in-law suggested that money could be saved if they all just stayed in the same motel room. After all, there were two double beds, and the little girls could just sleep on the floor. The young man hated to show his disappointment so went along with the idea. The older gent didn't plan to pay for a motel room and the young fellow didn't think it was his responsibility to cover the charges of another room.

The darkness of night had arrived. Meanwhile back at the motel room, the young man suggested to his pretty bride that they could leave their little girls with the grandparents and drive around and see the sights. Guess what, ol' Gran'pappy said he'd like to go, too. Well, what is a feller to say but okay. Grandma stayed with the girls.

During the drive up through the Dinosaur Hills, the young lady said, "Boy, what a pretty moon." From the backseat came Grampy's reply, "There is a ring around it. That means that it is going to rain."

So much for romance. :wink:

Spouse and I were sitting in our hot tub, enjoying the beautiful moon with the clouds, etc. Took some pics, waahhhh, didn't turn out. Oh, well, life on the farm. :cry: :( :cry:
Soapweed, what a bummer of a story. :cry: This moon didn't have a ring around it :cry: maybe tomorrow :)

katrina, I don't think she found it too funny. What else would you take pictures of while in a hot tub? The moon?

:wink:

We tested bulls last Friday, and I told my wife she ought to take a picture, so I could post it and tell nr and Reader II that this is where the idea on how to recharge cell phones came to be. I was told that was a "gross idea".

That's funny! A video of when they turn up the "juice" and the bull starts trembling would be a hit!

My wife calls it "checking their plumbing".

I've only ever seen one bull semen tested in my whole life, and all I could think was "OH MY GOD! That's gotta hurt!"

???? I don't understand. Why use electricity to test semen? Does current change with viscosity or something? Always something interesting on the Ranchersnet to learn even if I can't apply it! But sounds like something my spouse might be interested to hear.

Assuming you are interested in learning more about the moon, I would recommend that you type "lunar cycles, moon phases, full moon . . . " or something similar into google.

As much as I admire the work Temple Grandin has done, let's just say her trip through the dipping vat was where the research probably stopped, doubt if she has any first hand experience with the effects of the elctro-ejaculator. :eek:

I don't know about that!!! We had ours done at the vet college in Saskatoon, and the only ones who seemed to enjoy it was the female vet students doing it! Sadistic!!!

Shelly, I'm sure they were thinking of ex boyfriends at the time and not the bulls themselves! OUCH!
