Wordless Wednesday: Cattle Xing

Wordless Wednesday: Cattle Xing

Signage posted right at the point in the road where I push Ranch Baby back home and across the road after pushing him up the big, mean Bar U hill. Unfortunate, yet also motivating for my regular-ish physical activity! Plus I successfully edited out four of the five power lines in this photo. On the … Continue reading

Birthday Party Beef Brisket

Birthday Party Beef Brisket

Ranch Baby turned One (click here for gratuitous cake-face pics). According to my Babycenter.com emails, I should probably change that moniker to “Ranch Toddler”, but it’s my blog, and I don’t have to do nothing.

This is a win for everyone, except for maybe the Border Collie waiting outside the door for said table scraps. She’ll just … Continue reading

Baby’s First Beef

Baby’s First Beef

It’s only fitting that the first post on this blog is a post about a first. And this is a biggie. Probably bigger for me than for Ranch Baby (RB). RB is six months old now. At four months, the pediatrician gave the green light on experimenting with solids. By the second go at rice … Continue reading
