Well I see the cows have started to calve. I seen a brand new baby on the feed ground this morning. It was about time for them to start calving, they were starting to show really heavy. I let the cows calve on their own with little or no supervision by me. If it is really cold or snowy I might go over and attempt to keep an eye on things but otherwise I expect them to do as nature intended. Manage on their own.<br />n<!–more–><br />nI was a little late getting to feed this morning though and seeing the new calf. My Darling Wife called shortly after she left to take the oldest to the bus and informed me the vehicle had died and she could not get it restarted. Well I had to make a mad dash to the highway, literally, so that I could manage to meet the bus and not have to drive all the way into town to drop the kid off. Managed to meet the bus and was only about an hour late starting our routine. My Darling Wife felt very guilty about putting me behind schedule for getting things done. For the life of me I can't figure out why. It's not like she planned for the vehicle to break down and put me behind schedule. It just happened and you have to deal with these little bumps in the road and continue on without getting upset by them or you will die young of heart attack or some other similar ailment. No big deal. Had to get a tow truck out to take it to a mechanic who can deal with these fuel injected engines. If it has a carburetor I have a chance of figuring it out, but when it is fuel injected I am lost. Just talked to the mechanic and it wasn't a major breakdown and should be ready by tomorrow. Towing bill will be more expensive than the repair bill, but you gotta do what you gotta do is what I always say.<br />n<br />n<b>A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.
