The gift that keeps giving
We have a gift, that keeps giving. It just won't go away. This gift spent a couple months with us and then moved on to greener pastures. But while it was here, well, it gave. Yes it gave everything that it possibly could. It gave us fertilizer for our future corn crop. It gave us the enjoyment of watching it eat. It gave us several power outages (along with our neighbors) when it would scratch it's back on the guide wire for the eletric pole that it lived around-ruined the neighbor's homemade cheese cake during one of the power outages. It gave us several bent sprinklers and finally some broken ones which led to it's recent relocation to a more friendly surrounding. But alas, it is the gift that keeps giving and this morning when we woke up, guess who had returned. The gift was there in his usual spot itching his neck and belly on a poor bending sprinkler. He has got it bent pretty good. Well this gift is big, and on the verge of mean (the so called cow dog is a little afraid of him). When his owner came to round to try to chase him back home by herding him with the pick-up, well let's just say, this gift wasn't moving. So they built a fence around him until he can be picked up by a trailer and we get to enjoy him more. He has brought us alot of laughs, especially when it comes to the dog. Should be an entertaining week.
