Baby Bobcats

Kerry Don and I saw 5 baby bobcats yesterday just right north east of Roll-a-Cone.  Well they could have possibly been baby teenager bobcats. I'm just saying they weren't baby babies, but they weren't full grown either. Three of them ran off, but these two just hung out in the tree and looked at us.

Of course, this is the one and only time I didn't have my Canon!  But I got a few pictures with my phone.

 They really weren't that scared.  Kerry Don even said they were so durn cute he didn't even want to shoot them!  OK seriously I don't think he said cute.  Maybe he said cool.  Cool Cats!
 I, of course, wanted to take them home, declaw them and let them live at the Backwards K. 

But I don't think Maxie would like them.

I also found this picture in my phone taken by Judy. 
Anyone know who this freak is? 

It looks like she's wearing her student's Elmer Fudd cap.  Cool Cap.... Cool Cats too.  Is it Friday yet?

Snow Dawgs

 Riding on an old car hood behind the RZR, what more fun could a little boy have?

And make no mistake, Miss Maxie is right in the middle of all the action too! 

She follows the boys EVERYWHERE.... then she can hardly walk!  Her hips are bad, so she has to hobble around on 3 legs.... BUT she has to be with her boys!

Mind you, these boys are CRAZY, it was like 4 degrees, ok maybe it was about 17.
 But the drifts they were riding on were in the shade so it had to be about 10.

I didn't personally witness them getting air, but I'm certain it possibly could have happened..

That's Tater, he was all bundled up with a mask and all, then he got in the pickup to warm up and all the little rascal  had on his feet were one pair of no show socks and irrigation boots!  
He assured me next time he'd find his snow boots! 

We had to go tell them to come in, that it was gettin dark! 
I assure you, Miss Maxie got a ride in the RZR when they headed to the house! 
Her and her snow dawgs had a blast!

Meatful Mondays

This blog is for my sister.... Ok she's on a mission!  Here's the deal..... Oprah has started this crusade for Meatless Mondays. Meatless Mondays are you kidding me? WELL y'all know we're BEEF people!  And we eat BEEF and we're proud of it!
SO Tori wants everyone to posts their beef recipes on Mondays.

I didn't have time to take pictures of mine this time..... maybe next week..... I mean hello I had to watch the super bowl yesterday.  

Here's my recipe:

Chuck Roast Done Easy
Chuck Roast  
1 pkg of dry Lipton Onion Soup
Ground Pepper

That's it you say? Yep that's it I say.

Throw your roast in a cake pan, sprinkle the Onion Soup mix on top, and season with pepper.  I recommend putting about a 1/4-1/2" of water in the pan, too!  Then seal that baby up tight with foil and pop it in the oven at 325 for about 4 hours.   I mean it's that simple.  Sometimes, I call KD at lunch and say "Hey babe will you throw a roast in the oven, so I don't have to cook tonite."   He says "Sure babe".... cuz he likes roast too!   And he likes me to make gravy, see that water you add to the pan turns out PERFECT for the makins of brown gravy!   This roast will just fall all apart and it's also good slapped in a tortilla with alittle BBQ and Picante sauce, for a spicey beef roll! So there's my recipe and I'm stickin to it!

Well I wanted to include a picture of a few of our cows.... it snowed yesterday and we had to get out and haul hay.... these gals were pretty happy to see us!
 Black Motelys are my favorite! 

 Thank goodness for this trusty ole cake/hay wagon....

And these two came along for the ride.... until they got ta fightin in the back seat... that's when we dropped them off at the house and told them to sweep the garage! That's a true story!

Y'all have a lovely week!  And I just want to throw in how happy I am that the Packers WON!!! Woop Woop

Skatin' Party

Miss Meg is a pro!

Tater.... well he's not so much a pro, but he gets the  I Never Gave Up Award.  Oh and the I Fell the Most Award. But he's my baby and he was the cutest, that's my opinon anyway.

Sterling and Pake got the hang of it and were rolling right around the rink in no time!

Scouty just wanted to "Skape" too! 

Hunter and Bray were chicken..... they didn't skate.... punks! 
 Ok, Ok I was chicken too! 

Oh Sweet Baby Reno, I bet he'll skate when he's big enough!

Why did we skate you ask?  All for Miss Autumn she was 15! 

Here's the crew..... wait where's Pake?

He's a punk and won't let me take his picture....

And what better way to end the night,
than with a big ole mess of cotton candy!
