I am loving this mild weather for a few days. I plan to use one of these mild days to do some yard work, of which my yard needs badly. Leaves that were waiting for a mild winter day to be raked, and goodness, the holes all over the yard that rambunctious cattle made during the wet weather earlier in the winter. Bob moved the bull to another pasture so they don’t ramble around like they were doing. He was the ringleader for sure.
Our Sympathy goes out to the family of Luene Johnson who passed away early Monday morning. Luene had been in bad health for a few years. Luene had a very outgoing personality with a wonderful sense of humor and I always loved visiting with her.
