Two of the calves arrived this morning. Straight from the auction house and about wild and wide eyed as one could find them. Small critter, scrawny, about three hundred and fifty, four hundred pounds.
Renter tells me he will bring the rest later this afternoon – after he finishes with the kids working for a church scholarship.
And there;s a tale. They roped me into their project over at the ball field. The activity is centered around the requirements the church sets up to give out scholarships. To meet the minimum requirements each person competing must put in certain hours of free community service.
Today we had eighty head of candidates putting in hours divided them into groups . We got a lot of loose siding nailed, chair link fence free of tears and dug out benches re-bolted and some welding done. The concession stand got a new window and counter.
A productive morning.
I missed breakfast and over ate at lunch. Painful all the way around.
And now you know why I stay well away from the church. It’s too damn easy to get roped into projects looking for a silly volunteers.
