Babe and I made it

Oh….the storm was awful. On our tin roof it sounded like something terrible was going on. The weather radio was blaring and Babe and I huddled in the corner. The yard is a mess but all is well.dscn1617

Senepol…..Momma  cows of the South

Of course I need to be big about this so I made a Thank you card to ease my emotions . I have trouble making cards for men so I opted to stamp dsp myself and just say Thanks
