It is very dry and dusty here. I checked the weather and we have a 60% chance of rain Tuesday night and predicted to be in the 20's. That will be our first hard freeze.

That's right, it hasn't froze here yet.

I have some pictures of dry pasture conditions if I can figure out how to get them from my camera to my computer. My professional help left so I'm on my own. Get the book and read--you know, if all else fails, follow the instructions!

Greg I think the farmers are in pretty tough here too-shower again last night and a cold driving rain today-the poor buggers Friday till about 4'00 was dry and windy I'm sure some might of been into dry grain today on the fields the could get into but not for a week or so now. The sad part is the damn hoppers still going strong.

Best advice I can give on downloadin the pictures from camera to computer is .....get the instruction book out and do it step by step. Not knowin what kinda camera you have and what software it uses makes it almost impossible to help someone online. I would if I could, but unless she has a PS3100 Fuji, I can't.

And speakin of dry, oh man we made a trip to college station this afternoon, I thought it was bad here, least we still have some green grass, even tho it is kinda short, them poor folks over that way musta not seen rain at all this summer. I do bleave they've taught their cattle how to eat dirt. pastures were brown as all git out and grazed all the way to the dirt, just lil fuz stickin up. Sad.

FH,
I'm assuming when you got your camera, you put the camera software that came with your camera onto the computer. You should have a USB cable that came with your camera, plug one end of it to your camera, the other end of it to the USB port on your computer. When that is done, turn on your computer, let windows do its thing, then turn on your camera, but be sure your camera is turned to "PC" . Usually the program on your computer will acknowledge your camera, sometimes it will unload the camera all by itself, we have 2 different cameras with 2 different programs and they are pretty easy to unload. Give that a try. Be sure you know how to put your camera in "PC" mode before you start (that's where the directions come in handy) and above all else be sure your batteries are totally charged because if they aren't, you may lose everything. (Ask sw, been there, done that). Hope this helps!

Hanta Yo, thanks for the advice. Tomorrow I will get it out and proceed...

Good Luck, and I positively KNOW you can DO IT!! My expectation is that you will get the job done...without your "professional help", and you will do it better. :D :D :D :D Get going, girl!!!! :D :D :D 8)

P.S. You will find this picture thing is FUN once you get the hang of it, and guess what??? It doesn't take a genius to get the hang of it! I got it figured out, didn't I?? :wink: :!:

I even have a couple 'pintos' myself-I'm thinking there gonna get a bareback rigging stuck on them next spring if Jr. has his way. The absolutely ugliest horse I've ever rode was a gooch eyed paint mare down in Montana. Ten hours in the saddle with her felt like a month lol. She'd of made a great R-Calf horse kind of hardheaded and not overly bright-maybe it's something in the wayter down there lol.

not just sure what rule changes they will be-it's gonna be an interesting year I lost my two gunners both are playing AAA Midget as underagers-time for some different players to step up which is nice. Interesting note 4 of us evaluated thses kids from 1-6 on a 12 different skills-when they averaged each players skill score we all were with a half point of each other-don't whether it was experts agree or fools never differ lol. Nice to watch the young talent coming up.
