Down on the Farm with Uncle Cran
Today, Gypsy Scholar brings to readers the occasional Ozark farm report issued randomly by Uncle Cran, and replete with photos! First comes En-Uk's driving lesson:
According to Uncle Cran:
En-Uk was leery about driving the ATV, but this morning he finally got his nerves calmed and made a couple of rounds in the yard, with Sa-Rah doing the "back seat driving" and showing him what to do.Sa-Rah has no qualms about taking control:
As Uncle Cran tells us:
Sa-Rah is a brave girl. She is ready to give the cows their ration of range cubes.She heads out on her job:
Uncle Cran explains:
As you can see, the cows are ready and waiting, but Sa-Rah thought I should drive and distribute the feed. Since no one else was available to make a photo, there's no picture of us doing the actual feeding.We'll have to assume they did the deed -- and just skip to the next activity:
Ah, my mysterious wife:
I thought we should send you a picture of Sun-Ae, as she is the mysterious lady who seldom gets into the picture album, since she is doing most of the picture taking. Sa-Rah is getting ready to take her for a drive across the field.The two next appear far off in the field:
Only now does Uncle Cran note the danger:
Bravely driving past the cow herd they are going across the 50 acre pasture. Sa-Rah drove her mom all over the field. She must have been driving pretty fast, as when they were was off in the distance, I thought I heard Sun-Ae scream once.Despite the risk, they appear to be surviving:
Uncle Cran admits to uncertainty:
[The photo before this one] may have been on their return trip . . . . I am not sure about that.I see no driveway, just an enormous field, but who am I to doubt Uncle Cran's word? Anyway, more photos are promised:
But this is after their lengthy tour, and return to the driveway.
Sun-Ae had her camera with her, but I am not sure when she will send them. She has made several snapshots while here with us.If she sends them, I will post . . .
