    Never been on a farm. I'm a city boy all the way. Now that I'm in Montana and I see the ranchers working cattle or doing things in their fields I stop and watch. I just like to see their dogs work the cattle or the sheep.
    It's fascinating to see what I couldn't see in a city.

    How often are you stopped on a road and the cattle have the right of way.

    Good grief, the long winters must be finally getting to you. This is definitely a new low and a sad state for one to be in :D

    ...that said, happy B-day.

    I don't know you at all, Old Man, but I enjoy your posts (and sweet pistachio peanuts!, do you have a lot of 'em!!! :)) because you describe your trips and the conditions very well.

    You've got 17 years on me as I turn 62 in August. Neither one of us is close to 90 (well, you're closer anyway! ;)) but I've always liked this quote about gettin' old:

    “Sex at age 90 is like trying to shoot pool with a rope.”

    Growing up on a small farm in NEO I'm accustomed to the dumb cows... the only thing more stupid are sheep. One of my many farm jobs was to feed the dumb cows and if I was late coming home from school, the damned cattle would rat me out by standing in the pasture and bellowing until I fed them.

    Driving from one spot to another can be a challenge in NEO. The dumb cows always have the right of way and I've been stuck in many a cattle drive. The ranchers use the roads to move the dumb cows so you're forced to sit there and wait for the hundreds of stupid cows to move around your rig.

    Did I mention the lack of intelligence inherit in cows?

    Happy Very belated birthday, OMJ. I've got one coming up myself and they aren't quite as much fun as they used to be!
