Save This Farm

"Just don't blink"
My Nanny Martin lived to be 82, and for the last 30 years of her life she would say, "The older you get the quicker time flies." Well, to a young child who believed summers lasted forever, Christmas never would come, and the flying monkeys in the "Wizard of Oz" traveled for hours this was nonsense. Now 50 years later I am afraid I know what she meant. A year ago I bought my first calf. He was supposed to be here a few months, sold, and make me some money.....
I guess I blinked; the calf is still here, he has been registered and named. I have in one year completely changed my idea of cattle raising. I now have two bulls, twenty-six girls, and am waiting on summer and fall babies to be born.
Questions you ask when you have passed the time flies zone:
1) Is it time for school to start back already?
2) Isn't Jake still considered a puppy? A three year old puppy maybe.
3) Didn't they used to show the "Wizard of Oz" just once a year?
