So, I was just telling you about me and my oddball bunch here at The Royal Ranch, and how I need your help with my new catch phrase. Well, they say I picture is worth a thousand words, and if I had had a camera with me this morning, the pictures would have been priceless!!!! I had to get back on and tell you all about it. As usual I had done my posting before everyone was up and out of bed. I got the boys out the door without a mishap, which is something to write home about, I must say. It is a beautiful morning here in Colorado, with a storm expected, so Isabella and I decided to walk the quarter mile to the bus stop.
That is where things went all wrong! See, animals don't like it when you throw a wrench into their plans. Once they see their feed mama head out the door it is feeding time, and that's that. So, for a quarter mile, I hear two battling roosters and two screaming sheep, you know they have been starving for a full twelve hours! Well, we haven't gotten the hang of walking to the bus, so we were a little late and had to run the last little bit, and Rosie (the dog) got really excited, and hopped right on the bus with Bella! Like a good girl, she followed Bell to her seat and sat right down. I had to climb onto the bus and coax her off amidst the joyous laughter of the kids and the crimson face of my poor daughter!
I then hurry home to feed the demanding animals that are bawling so loudly by this time that I figure I have animal control on the way. The chickens are stacked pyramid style against the fence to get out of their coop to see what kind of morsels I have brought them from the kitchen and to find their secret places to lay their eggs, it cracks me up every time! Finally I get a chance to play with my new lambs; Crash is "ramming" the water bucket, impatiently waiting for me to pet him. Princess, on the other hand is still quite shy, so I get down on the ground to try and get her to come near... and BAM, I have a lamb on my back! Will this place never cease to amaze me?
