Farm Guy managed to get Jackie to the vet this morning. Surgery went well and I can pick her up tomorrow after school. All day I have wondered if Fernando would be here when I got home. I didn't expect him to be. After all, his humping buddy was gone.
The kids are I pulled into the driveway today to find Bear....and Jesus! I have to admit...I was secretly hoping he would still be here. Not only is he here but he has moved in. He's been inside all night. Like he is on the couch asleep on the blanket right now. And just before that, he was asleep on Farm Guy's lap on the recliner. And before that? Beneath the kitchen table cleaning up from supper. Hmmmm. We are such suckers. I have decided that if he sticks around this weekend, we will set up the appointment to take care of his little humping issue and keep him here. For good.
However, a farm dog he isn't. Remember yesterday when I said he wasn't here all afternoon, but showed up late last night? Get this. We keep live animal traps at the barn down the road to keep the critters away. The bait? Cat food. Guess who got stuck in the trap yesterday? Aaahahahahaha. Thankfully Uncle M checked the trap before heading home for the night. Poor little Tico.
Speaking of the barn...this barn (about 1/10 of a mile down the road) is where the grain bins, most of the cattle, and much of the farm equipment is kept. We have had issues with thieves going in and stealing cables and wires. So, the guys put a lock and cable across the entrance. Last night someone cut the lock, took the keys to one of the big grain trucks (probably tried to steal it but it's hard to start) and took the gas from the truck. Bastardos.
Tomorrow is Friday! Can I get an amen?! Jeesh this has been a long-a$$ week. SO looking forward to catching up on my blog-reading and relaxing at home with my babies. And Farm Guy. And Hernando.
