Falling down .. me and my pants

We had a good night .. I practiced what I preach for once. We stayed warm, dry, safe and in house.  Today, I haven’t been so lucky. The Buckaroo and I headed out early to check,  feed and water the cows and horses. It’s been blowing snow, cold and everything is frozen.

Just like at the station, snow on the farm makes conditions a little more difficult to contend with.  It also makes conditions a little more hazardous. I slipped on an icy step and fell off the tractor today. I must be getting older because it hurt… A LOT .  One little fall and I feel like I’ve been in a fight. It was one of those types of  falls where you quickly look around to see if anyone seen it. LMAO .. who’s gonna see me fall out there?  It’s just me, the Buckaroo and the cows. Well ok … if cows could laugh … they would have..

The Buckaroo was quick to the rescue. He scooped me up and got me loaded back in the tractor because we had just started our days work. We still had ice to bust in the water tanks and horses to look after so he  took command and finished up our chores..

He wanted to start replacing the roof on the barn (high winds blew one of our barn roofs completely off earlier this week) but I just didn’t feel up to the task. It took a little convincing but we spent the evening indoors playing and resting up a bit.

I did come across some good news. We were doing a little on-line shopping and came across the perfect gift for me. We’re a little behind on our Christmas shopping because it’s difficult for me to walk around the mall. There’s nothing wrong with my hips, knees or legs .. it’s my pants. I can’t hold my purchases and pull my pants up at the same time. Lucky for me, we found “SUBS”

You gotta be kidding me! What a novel idea. Here’s another one …. buy a BELT !

We also ran across a video of a suspected arsonist torching a salon in Fla. I don’t have any more details but it looks as if it ran him out of there pretty quickly. Check it out …

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I had several more topics that I wanted to cover and I’m gonna put em off another day until Im back on duty tomorrow.  We will wind up our cycle tomorrow and catch a 4-day break before returning on Christmas Eve.

I’ll leave ya tonight with Day 7 of Santa’s Sexy Helper ….

I’ll catch ya sometime tomorrow… until then, stay safe and in house.
