Texas Weather

Written by Dr. Dolittle on January 12, 2008 – 3:21 am -

January in Texas. Air conditioning one day, heat lamps on the water pipes to keep them from freezing the next day. Colds, sniffles, sneezing and heavy coats to short sleeves. But we don’t shovel snow.

The cows got their monthly dose of molasses tubs. All the girls are due to calve in the next two to three months so they get extra minerals to keep them healthy. They get real excited when we give them something extra. For a bunch of pregnant cows they romped, kicked and jumped like kids on the lsat day of school.

Ted E. Bear is the new kid on the block. I call him the cat of my old age. He stays in the house unlike his three outside brethren. He wasn’t even weaned when he stuck to my coat one day. We had stopped at a house to ask if the people knew someone we were looking for. The lady there was hoping we had stopped to take one of her kittens. I was in the truck until kittens started running around. All I could hear is, “Stay in the truck!” Of course I didn’t, and this cute little kitten stuck to my coat. I tried to shake him off but of he just wouldn’t come loose. Now his best friend is Rascal, the family Blue Heeler watch dog.
