Your comments are perfect for the photos! It would make a great board book for kids!

Love it! Kids will be kids!

Sushi should be the topic of your "Upcoming" children's book. To quote you Petey, "I just love Sushi!" What a fun blog!

Petey, you're hilarious. Made me laugh. Now on the serious okay? ha ha ha. Have a great day.

I would love to play with Sushi!

Petey, your pics are wonderful, as is your sense of humor. Keep it coming girl. Take good care of you too.
Aug. 18, 2012 6:14 pm
LOLOLOL! Ahhhhh! So glad Mom and baby are doing well. Hope you are as well as the spunky kid that tried to find someone to play with :)

Once again, great pictures and captions, petey. I have shared your blogs with so many people. You really should be a writer. You have a great way with words and you take incredible pictures. I most definitely would buy your book! :o)

Thanks Molly, Gderr, C-Hill, Rosebud and Linda :)

Petey: Sushi is adorable! Glad to see she is doing well.

That is so cute and funny!
Aug. 20, 2012 11:41 am
LOL! GREAT captions to go with the pictures!! I love how you "translate" what Sushi is saying/thinking, because I often do that with my own animals. I echo the sentiments that this would make an excellent children's book. Perhaps that could be your way of dipping your toes into the waters of authorship? ;-)

Your cows have the sweetest faces ever! And that Sushi is just too cute. I echo the book idea!
Aug. 22, 2012 6:33 pm
LMAO!!! I just love your blog posts makes my days..
Aug. 23, 2012 6:17 am
your pictures made my day. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are doing well today, Petey.
Aug. 23, 2012 6:28 am
Love the crazy goat-face! Another great children's book in the making, fantastic captioning, I love it all...I have a big smile on my face! Poor Sushi, better luck tomorrow baby-doll!

Awesome again as usual. Ditto the childrens book idea.
Aug. 23, 2012 10:53 am
I agree with the children's book idea. The majority of children are not exposed to farm/ranch life like they use to be. How better to educate and entertain them than through a pictorial of this kind. Now that's a story time worth the time!! You've got the talent Petey - keep it up!!

About Me
Kids are raised, we are ranchhands on a 250,000 acre working cattle ranch 110 miles from the nearest small town, so we raise a lot of our own food, vegetables, fruits, milk,eggs and meat. Love riding and working cattle, but find myself spending a lot more time in the kitchen, and the garden.
My favorite things to cook
Having 2 Jersey cows as well as milk goats, playing with fresh milk is a hobby, making our own butter, yogurt, sour cream, cheeses, soap and all the other great stuff you can do with fresh raw milk.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade from scratch...anything! All traditions are sort of gone by the wayside, as we live so far from family now
My cooking triumphs
Most things from this site, this has been the best thing the internet has had to offer!
My cooking tragedies
A layered Jello dessert...the middle layer never set, so it did the 'ooze-wiggle'...and...well..I liquified a couple of chickens on 2 different occasions, turning them into a black gel. Moral of that story is, don't start cooking then go clean barns!...and there was the time that my kids were helping me make Thanksgiving dinner and SOMEbody (who resembled my youngest son) forgot to put the sugar in the pie!!!
