“Can’t move right now. Could you go around?”


Junior didn’t care enough about the yellow thing to interrupt his meal, and Mom was apparently familiar enough with motor vehicles not to see the Jeep as a threat. So yeah, she stood right there blocking the road as I slowly went around her.

That was Tobie’s closest look at one, and he’d have liked it if I stopped right next to her for a few minutes. He finds the cattle very interesting but not particularly exciting. They apparently don’t fall into his Things That Must Be Chased class, which (provisionally) is good news.

    Maybe a shot from a pellet gun would move them.

  2. Joel says:

    Oh, any sudden noise would move them. That’s not really the point.

    It’s like any other imposition. As a group I despise them. Individually I don’t have anything against them at all.

    Sure seems awfully green for high desert in late summer.

    Monsoon’ll do that.

  5. Joel says:

    Yup, a wet monsoon always greens things up. Which is of course why now we’re inundated with cattle, their owner(s) taking advantage of all that free grass.

To the stake with the heretic!
