« on: March 28, 2008, 07:27:05 PM »
 :lmao3: Well after the kidding this morning had to go to the store...takes less than a hr to go and come back...ok Maggie was out eating when I left...got back after a quick visit with BoBo...and low and behold ther is a calf in the pasture...I start honking the horn and DIL comes out and says "Whats wrong?" I sadi werent you watching??? she said I was watching Jitter like you said to...Well I was already running out to the calving pasture..Well get there and here is this little brown thing.....take a look and guess what?   :itsagirl2:  :whoohoo: God does love me after all...I sure knew she was going to have a bull calf.
Well got to get her in soon to milk her bag cause its is GYNORMOUS and the baby isnt going to drink all of that any time soon...Man are my hands going to hurt BIG TIME!! her udder is about the size of a washtub...this is going to be a job...But just Thankful the baby is doing good and I was afraid she was going to have twins... Will post pictures soon..

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.' - Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Give Maggie a big old kiss and hug from me for doing such a great job!!!! And come on milking her wont be that bad!!  :lmao3:  I feel your pain. Have your daughter in law help and you two can take turns that is what Britt and I did. It gave us both a chance to rest our hands. On the nights I had to hand milk by myself it took forever. LOL!!
