Managing a Ranch

That's another issue I have. Being an only child, I don't like being alone. I didn't like it when growing up and I don't like it now. Guess that's why we have so many animals. I'm never alone anymore; not in the house, the front yard, nor the back yard. Actually my yards are pastures …

So much for keeping my promise to myself

I try to write every morning but I keep getting in my way. I say that because often I don't know what to write, nor do I how to go about what I'm thinking. Daily chores conflict with my writing time. But then again, anything could fill that bill. If I let it, that is. …
