Evenings in Cowboy-land

I come home from work just before 4:00pm.
Pulling in, I see 4 guys perched on their tailgates, cold cans of beer in their hands, country music playing.
"Miriam! You're home! Do you want one?" They call, beckoning me over. I accept it gratefully.
They've been working on our fences all day, starting at 7am. They work hard, but they also know how to enjoy themselves. All their lunch boxes contain a few cans of beer, and their supply of jokes is just as well stocked.

"Did you know that Willie Nelson died?"
We're shocked. "What? Really??"
"Yes, he was playing on the road again."

Yes, I fell for it. (In my defense, so did Rich. Willie is getting up there!)
The good news is: Willie is still alive and well, and coming to our town this summer!

We sit on the tailgates, sipping beer, listening to music, and being entertained by our resident comedian. He does a killer Sean Connery!
I love these guys.

Later, I go over to our neighbour's place, to look after their animals. They're away working, and I'm in charge of their cats and temporary dog Rudi. You know that I have no special feelings towards cats, but Rudi is sweet!
Here he is:

He gets along well with the corgi, which is fortunate, because if he wouldn't, we would have a serious problem. But then again, who doesn't get along with the corgi? She has that special gift of being liked by all. 

Another night, we go for a little stroll on the ranch with mother-in-law, who is currently visiting us.

Our destination? The goat pen!
Keeping a safe distance

The goats are the funniest little creatures you can imagine, I love them! I'm teaching them to do yoga with me, one bribe at a time. The most promising one is Adele:
She's the brown one on the left: One more hop, and she'll be up there. 

Evenings are magical at this time of year.

  1. Life there suits you, my friend. :)

  2. I love that your goats are starting to get into your yoga practice! You're one step closer to owning your own Goat Yoga studio ;)
