Last night as the wind blew hard and the temperatures dropped so fast my face ached, I got all the chores finished. Finally got in the house. Finally peeled off the layers of messed up miserable ramshackle outdoor homeless person clothing. Finally got my… Continue Reading “LAST NIGHT”


The wind is howling outside. It howled all yesterday too by the afternoon it was gale force and is holding. 

Long Necks

I was feeling lazy yesterday afternoon as I climbed right to the top of the hay pile in the West Barn, the last stack stands in the corner of the central storage area of the barn. It is stacked against an interior wall with cows behind… Continue Reading “Long Necks”

Actually I am not going to talk about the milk.… Continue Reading “Use the wind”
