Memorial Day! This week marks the start of summer as well as hay season here on the ranch. We’ll start laying grass on the ground and with temps this week in the middle 90s (heat indexes nearing the century mark) it’ll cure pretty quick.

The cows are pretty content, so I had the opportunity to visit some friends this weekend and enjoy some good food. We know all about our grillin, just get a good dry rub and a grill, sit back and enjoy. I had some good steaks, lamb, and even had catfish with all the fixins twice. When was the last time you sat back to watch and listen to the sunset? Nothin like listenin to all the crickets and critters, and the squirrels.

Take time this week to thank a soldier for their work to keep our freedoms in this country. What will you be doing for Memorial Day? What signs mark the start of Summer around your place?
