Dairymaid Woes

Saturday I was Minding my own business like a good cowgirl does... and My cowboy says "lets go look at these calves", So I said "sure" and off we went down the road to this dairy and beef farm..
Well... we get there and I was under the impression we were getting 3 calves...
I wound up coming home with 7....
1 holstein, 1 brown swiss mix, 1 mut and 4 black angus crosses.....  I have one heifer and 4 steers...  And all of them need to be bottle fed..
and I love my babies... but this routy bunch... let me tell you what.. I only got 3 of them to take the bottle saturday night, Sunday I wake up.. and I'm rubbing the sleep out of my eyes and filling up the coffee pot with water. and I look outside the window, and what do I see?.......  a calf.... the joker was out of the pen... So I put the coffee pot down and put on my muck boots and run outside.. to wrestle calves.. and I mean literally..  3 of them were out.. and not the three that figured out I was momma saturday night...
So.. After we slip and slide in the mud and I get them back in the pen.. I walk back into the house to make them bottles... I got 6 of them eating, but the smallest one still wouldn't eat... so I figured he'd be hungry by supper time.. so I let him ride..


after that fiasco We finished putting in my new sink... For Christmas I got the touchless faucet from my parents... and then If you get the wheels spinning and think back.. I got the money for the sink in Vegas..  Well 2 weeks ago.. I picked up a composite sink.. supposed to not break and all that jazz...  Well Rewind to Friday...  Friday since I get out of the Clinic early.. I decided I'd run by the grocery store (this should have been my cue to stop what I was doing)  I bought a gallon of milk..  and put it down on the floor board of the vette.. and drove home... well I found out when I placed it down on the floor board, there was a screw sticking straight up and stuck in the milk jug, and viola... rotten milk smell in my car... no bueno...
but, I put the groceries away, and said alright.. i'm going to put in this sink.. so I rolled my sleeves up got some tools and went to work...
I get the composite sink out of the box, and I'm going to install the faucet.. well the sink has "easy knock out" holes in it.. so I go to knock out the other hole I needed with a hammer.. and bam... The whole darn sink split in half... seriously?!?!!?  yeah seriously...
So i loaded the joker up and headed back to the home improvement store which I will keep nameless... and on my way.. I pass this really pretty motorcycle... that looks like ours... (I forgot to tell y'all we got a motorcycle.. more to come on that).. well I slam on the breaks.. and pull over..  and my cowboy turns around and he's like what are you doing?  I was all.. "yeah... ummm.... I broke the sink"  hahahah... so I follered him back to the house and he came with me.... Good thing too.. because after I broke the unbreakable sink.. I decided that I might not want to get that one again.. so I got a kohler cast iron 9.625" deep sink..  and it's beautiful.. let me tell you what.. and the touch-less facuet thing... so awesome...


On to the motorcycle... A week or two or so ago... My husband decided that since all his Marine buddies have motorcycles.. that we needed to get one to...  I had absolutely NO interest in motorized bicycle death traps myself...  but, I'm easy going and easy to get along with.. so I figured i'd give it a whirl..
so we head down to Columbia to this Harley place... and hes looking at this ultra classic bikes or some crap.. well my grandfather (who rode) wouldn't have driven that...
so my cowboy is all "look at this one" and right in front of the sales dude..  I said "I'm not getting on that... My grandfather wouldn't even ride that.. If you are going to buy a Harley.. buy a REAL harley"... So the sales guy asked me what I preferred.. so I look around and my eyes caught this bike....  apparently it's called a Softail...  well..  I asked about the color.. and It was called "blue suede pearl"  now with a name like that... and me being a woman with Elvis in my heart.. I said.. that's got to be the one..  So the guy tells me how much it was.. and I about fell out...  holy crap.. I could buy a truck for that price....  So I said.. no bueno.. and he began to throw out all these names of crap that was on the bike.. some vanson heinz exhaust.. some shocks, pegs, spokes, sissy bar... now when he said that.. I said.. I'm not sure I want a sissy bar.. what the heck is that.. and the guy showed me.. and I said.. sorry for being a mental midget.. if it ain't got 4 legs I don't know much about it.. hahaha..  Now it's used now... and it was 19900 or something.... that was too many nines and zeros for me...
Well My Cowboy starts talking to the guy.. and they were hemming and grumbling and crap.. and I said.. Look.. I'll give you eleven grand for thing... and the guy looked at me like I really was an idiot..  but, I said.. I'm hungry.... I'd like a tasty beverage and I'm not into beating around the bush.. go take the over to the dude or I'm going to eat".... So off he scurried.. and he came back.. and he said.. that the owner was far from happy with the offer... and I said.. Ok.. and my cowboy said.. Alright.. we are going to eat...
so then we got up to walk out.. and the dude was like.. WAIT... I want you to talk to.... well I forgot the fella's name... so My cowboy did.. and this guy thought he was going to sell me on this bike.. so he starts telling me this and that.. and I said.. "look buddy.. I don't want the darn thing.. I would be happier then a fat kid with a cake just riding my horse down the side of the road.." so he looked like I blew his candle out...
Anyways... We went home with the bike.. for 1,500 more than what I offered him :)
Remember.. You got to be 10% smarter than the equipment you're runnin'. 


I think i'll be alright...  I REALLY enjoyed the one and only ride I have taken on the bike :)


We are headed to bike week next month.. hahahah




Well That's all for now.. so just do all you can do and let the rough end drag.





Last night's Supper...  Lemon Olive Chicken.. :)
