Here we are in my get-away wagon. We were up at the corrals while our mom was working with some horses. Isn't he just sweet?
Then he grew up and turned 40. Hard to believe. No it is not his birthday and in fact he is now 41 but we have this relationship where we are always trying to get each others goat. So on his birthday I ordered a cake and the picture on top was a subject that gets him each time. You see he gave me a ferrell barn kitten from the ranch he was managing years ago. A beautiful gray short haired cat we named "Gray Jay". Why Gray Jay? Well because my brothers name is Jay and he is not particularly fond of cats. Although we loved this cat he soon became an outside kitty because he decided he preferred to use the farmers leg as a peeing post. In fact this cat was worse than a dog. He peed on car tires every day of his life even though he was neutered. Of course Jay delighted in the fact that farmer was loved by Gray Jay.
This is the photo I put on top of the cake. I superimposed his face on a picture of our cat in a tree. It was also a birthday card at one time.
I love to take photos and he is always so happy about it. Can't you just read his mind? He is thinking "Gawd, here comes the camera again". Actually Gawd might be a tad mild in his mind.
Take this! How do you like your photos now? Yep he got me back, NOT! He should know by now that he will never be able to outsmart me.
Especially when he makes the mistake of having a magazine cover made of himself and then gives it to me to make a copy of. Little did he know at the time that there would be an Internet world.
Well on his ranch he was raising little piglets. Oh how cute! Ha! I am not overly fond of big old sows and he did manage to know this.
Well perhaps he did get me back a few times. You need to click on the photo above to see what it says. This was a gift to me in a birthday card.
