The Frogs Are Croaking Back at the Ranch

Cattle grazing by the running draw.

With an inch of rain yesterday, and two inches today, the draws are running, the frogs are croaking, and WOW–It’s good to be back at the ranch.

I have yet to figure out how the frogs can hibernate for years and then show up in abundance when we finally have rain here in the desert SW. The sound of their croaking could be heard in the house over the air conditioner and television last night. It was an amazing sound to be lulled to sleep by.

This morning, the frogs are still there, though the creek is gone. The temporary problem of muddy roads means fat calves this fall. It is a wonderful sight back on the ranch.

    I won’t say there aren’t any Harvard graduates who have never asserted a superior attitude. But they have done so to our great embarrassment and in no way represent the Harvard I know.
