sugar beets


Hard freeze with the wind rattling the upstairs last night. The grand-baby twins awoke with pink noses. Furnace needs parts. My morning ride up valley was atilt, shoulder to the wind and the ride home a quiet glide.

Care to elaborate on how the sign from the Payette National Forest came to be in your yard?

Not as dubious as you may be thinking. It's not an original Rembrandt!

Riding in for my mileage check today it occurred to me people were looking at me funny, like "Look at that duff wearing his balls on his forehead, where his brains should be." Only racked up 300 miles, what with Christmas and all.



Well another Christmas past and Santa still refused to bring me a garage.

I'll be passing within 20 miles of Caldwell on my trip to Oregon next July. Me and the dog might just have to stop by the shop and say hello to old Tito

Those sheep look to have been shorn only a few weeks previous; it seems late when there's snow in the offing. Do you have any idea why they shear so late in your parts?

I come from New Zealand, where we do have a the odd flock of sheep, and I have shorn a few in my time!

Mostly we shear near the beginning of summer, and in some parts we shear a second time early in autumn. In some parts of the country farmers shear just before lambing (late winter), using a "cover" of "snow" comb, to leave equivalent to about two weeks growth of wool on the ewes. It is enough to protect the ewes in the event of snow. However, the dopy things are more inclined to seek sheltered spots to lamb, so improving the survival rate of their offspring.

Nice to see the snow on the ground, and the motorcycle still rolling.

Habibi Rocks-- Not many of the old wooden shepard wagons left. Yep, Gypsy wagon roots. When grandpa farmed here most shepards were Basque, now Equatorian. I didn't know I was a sheep eater until I used my meal ticket from the Armed Forces Recruiting Center in LA (1969). Moving down the chow line I smelled something good. My first mutton. The other guy at the table where I sat wrinkled his nose and moved off. Glad you're enjoying my thread.

Aj Mick-- I too noticed these woollies seemed a bit late to fall shearing. We don't get much snow here in the valley. It always looked like back breaking work to me.

Ten days out of the saddle. Last year the longest stretch was eight. Doesn't look like I'll pull off a planed ride to Boise this morning. Weatherman says I'll be able to shake off these housebound blues tomorrow.
