Can't complain about the weather, it's almost perfect.  They say we might get some rain this week-end, I'll believe it when I see it.  Of course NASCAR is racing up at Phoenix, that almost guarantees there will be rain.  There is something about scheduling a NASCAR race that causes rain, last week-end their big opening race at Daytona had a 6 hour delay for rain.  

The picture above is a picture of BlackJack being a gentleman.  He's waiting for Coquette and Penny to get thru getting a drink out of the yellow waterer.  A lot of times he is a brat about such things and has to act like a jerk, but he was being sweet this day.  

I think Penny's back is less hunchbacked than it was when she came here last summer.  Maybe having a large area to roam around in, is making a difference.  

If the weather stays like it is, it won't be long before we will need to put fly masks on everybody.  Haven't seen many flies so far, but I'm sure they'll be here before too long.  Just this morning we saw a teeny tiny lizard about an inch long.  John looked up info on lizards and it said they hatch out in late summer.  Poor little things how to they hatch out, learn to hunt and find enough bugs to get fat enough to survive hibernating.  Doesn't sound a lot of fun.

I looked at the back door a little while ago and there was a little praying mantis, not much longer than a inch hanging on the screen, so I guess we're getting pretty close to spring.  Even noticed some green leaves on the salt cedar behind the house.  The old timers say it isn't spring until the mesquite bud, and that hasn't happened yet.

boy you sure nailed it on the head with the NASCAR. We are supposed to ride our bike to Bullhead City this weekend, but looks like we will be driving instead of riding. :(

Talk about a small world....I just found out that your trimmer Courtney is the same trimmer I am using to fix my mare.

Well, hopefully the weatherman will be as accurate as they usually are, so your week-end doesn’t get ruined.....!!! LOL Yes, Courtney is suppose to come out early next week and reset Gus’ epoxy sole. He’s a sinker and she’s got him doing pretty good these days. A lot of my guys wouldn't be doing as well if it wasn't for Courtney.
