|waiting for the cows to come over|
We had the cousins here Sunday while my dad did some things to get his 1929 Dodge ready for summer. He also checked on his 1948 Farmall H tractor to make sure it was ready to go. My 4 year old nephew heard the tell-tale sound of the tractor's chug-chug start and screamed, "TRACTOR!" He immediately came running over to see if there might be enough gas/oil in the tank for a ride. When Grandpa starts the tractor the rest of the world stops.
The cows were feeling friendly as well. We took turns feeding them fresh grass and laughing when their rough tongues touched our hands. Arliss described it best; "It feels like you rubbed your hand on concrete."
Other fun included the cousins taking turns swinging in the hay mow on the rope. By the time Grandpa's to-do list was done, the kids were tired but wishing to stay longer.
Sending much love and wishes for spring.
