Sorry, its been a week. But well, farming and ranching can take a toll on you.
Frank's been in the hospital. He had some chest pains, but they didn't find anything wrong which was a surprise, actually. Anyway, we (Steph & Me) ended up staying the night with his wife. That was kind of strange. Really. I'm not sure who was more scared. Me or Steph.
Steph is a little frightened of her old tom cat Gooch, who doesn't have a tail. He's a big cat and roams where ever he pleases. He's pretty and all, but has a mind of his own. He actually likes Steph, but she still fears he might claw her.
So yeah, the night we were over. Well, you know, it was like we didn't sleep together or anything. Steph actually had the guest room and I had the couch. Anyway, middle of the night, here comes Mrs. Hough with a candle, checking up on me. God, I thought she was going to give me a heart attack. She was so afraid I was sleeping with Steph. As if they would be the worst thing in the world. I tell you, I really wanted to be in Steph's room with the door locked. That Mrs. Hough scares me.
Lon got a job out on a ranch in Sanderson. I believe. He's out with his dogs looking for wild cats. He's all excited. Actually. I don't know why he did it. I wish he would have talked it over with us, but he just upped and left. He said he had to jump on it. This job. Go figure.
Its been a tough week.
