Tough times, we sold the kids.
I thought I ought to blog about something since it had been a couple weeks. It has been so dry and hot we didn't have enough pasture for all our goats. So we sold the kids a little early and of course the next morning it rained. Now we are still very grateful for the rain, and I don't suppose it hurt anything to get rid of the little goats anyway. We would have sold them in a couple of months.
Nothing new to report with the leche hauling. Except Dawson has been looking for something else to do. HA! I finally burned him out. He is still sorta on call, but might be getting a new job this week. I told him if he wanted to do something else, he didn't have to feel like he had to stay with the trucking. (I need to work on my sentence structure a little) I think the trip across Oklahoma without the a/c a couple of weeks ago turned him off a little. I have been running all short Hereford-Portales or Brownfield-Portales or Roswell-Portales loads this week. That is good in that I can be home at night most of the time. But not enough miles to suit me really. And I am really tired of hanging around at that plant in Portales. Portales isn't as bad as hanging out 14 hours at the plant in Winnsboro, TX!! That was the pits.
We finally got our insurance check for our roof. After much over the phone chewing by me. It will pay about 2/3 of the cost of the new metal roof. (Not including installation, sweat equity) We are planning to pick up the materials this week, and hopefully get it put on soon. Looking forward to everybody coming to visit later this week!
