My Crazy Schedule

I’ve always been an early riser. Now, for some unknown reason, I’m sleeping in! Maybe it’s all that lake water out there, sparkling in the moonlight, gleaming in the sunshine.

I’m gearing up now for a visit from my long-time friends, Cindy, Annie, and Althea. We first met on a tour of Southeast Asia, years ago, and become buddies right away. I was spending a lot of time in Europe in those days, and I think it was something like four years before we all got together on the north American continent!

I plan to show the gals the changes at the main house, then we’ll all come out here to the lake to catch up and drink cosmos. Cindy makes a mean cosmo.

Now, back to work.

Back in earlier days, a cattle drive would average 10-12 miles a day.
