Superbowl Sunday

I don't get excited about the Superbowl unless I have a team in the fight.  I didn't.  Like my son when he was a toddler, I do stop and watch the commercials.  Nothing really blew my skirt up, but I do enjoy seeing what they come up with.  It's just hard to comprehend the amount of money that was spent for a silly ol football game.  The tickets, the hotels, the food, the beer, the commercials, the hype and what all else.  I suppose if you are into that sort of thing.

Not much happening here at the Circle Y.  It's been another quiet week.  A couple of trips into town, the deer and horses back to visit, some surveyors across the way marking out for new gates, but other than that not much.  It did rain real good for a little last night.  About 3/4 inch worth.  I know that because Dave bought a fancy weather station awhile back and it says so.

If they build those new gates soon there will be 4 gates here within 50 yards of each other.  Those are for new pads on the other 2 properties, so at least if we have nothing going on at our gate we can watch whats going on at 3 others!

The ranch owner has 3 cats that hang around and keep the mice away.  I've named them Tic, Tac and Toe.  Tic is friendly and likes to have his back rubbed.  Tac will hang around but won't let you touch him and Toe is only seen from a distance.  Well, I say his and him, but I'm told at least one of them is a she and the momma kitty.

Today we had a new visitor and I hope it doesn't hang around or become a regular recurring visitor.  A skunk!  It was around the other side of the fence near where I hung the bird feeder.  There is a large dirt pile with a brush pile on top of that and we certainly hope it's not nesting over there.

OK, that's all I've got for tonight.  All you 9 to 5ers have a good work week.  Gate guarders get some rest and everyone else just enjoy!



  1. I love Tic Tac Toe! The skunk, not so much! I didn't watch the game but always enjoy the commercial recap!
    Take care, you two!

  2. We were Switzerland this year. I was too busy talking to catch most of the commercials. Have fun with the names! :) Smiles, Lisa
