Spring

It is now Spring and the ranch is alive with flora and fauna.  Quail, rabbits, robins, and towhees flit through our grassy five acres sequined with apple blossoms, daffodils, iris, and pansies.  The deer and our four horses graze with an occasional nod toward the rancher who carries her muckrake.  A flicker taps the top of our horse shelter like a jack hammer then looks up.  The silence lingers.

  3. I love it, Brian! I look forward to your future blog posts!! In the modern world, cyber-stalking is almost as good as sharing a cup of joe with an old friend, particularly when hundreds of miles separate you :-)
