So many, now to pic one. I remember staying with Uncle Jr and Aunt Zelma for a week before I graduated from HS. Uncle Jr asked me if I wanted to hold the gate while he fed the cows. I thought sure, I can do that! On the walk through the pasture, he told to ignore ( can’t think of her name, but she was a Brahma and she was very big) her, that she would not mess with me. Uncle Jr had a smirk on his face! I knew if that smirk was like the one my dad, his younger brother always showed, I was in trouble!! So the cows start to following him in by the barn, except the Brahma, she comes closer to the gate, and I am between the gate and the fence, I frickin froze on the spot, good thing I had a strong bladder. She eyed me, she knew I was afraid of her! I stood there until Uncle Jr comes over, he calls her by name, tells her that I wasn’t worth any trouble, to come eat. She followed him in, and I shut the gate so fast! Uncle Jr laughed and laughed. Then while walking back up to the house, I said, “So I am not worth any trouble!” He said, “ Sometimes you got to tell them old broads just what they want to hear .” I wish I would of spent more time with your family. I learned so much in one week. About cows, Ihla’s horse, and how to have a listening ear with Randy ( Miss him), then Aunt Zelma teaching me to craft! I love you all so much. May God give you peace and comfort during this time! 😥♥️🙏
