How about a little trip to Wyoming today? We are visiting our daughter, Bailey, Trevor, and Henry in Wyoming. We are in a pocket of paradise here. We’re in a small farming town, the closest metro being 2 1/2 hours away. We’re enjoying the heck out of Henry. Len also likes to help Bailey with projects around the house, so were doing some of that too.
I’ve been taking Henry for walks down this little country dirt road behind a corn field. One side is solid corn and the other is a field full of cows. I’m sure nobody ever walks down this road! I’ve seen the cows for 4 walks now. They lift their heads, stare at us, moo a little bit, and that’s our walk. Yesterday, I guess the cows got curious enough that they all came running over to see us.
Imagine a huge herd of cows running over to you. They have a little hot wire fence so the cows don’t stray. I was so worried the cows were going to try and get through the hot wire to get to us, and they were all going to get shocked. I guess they are familiar already with the fence as they stopped right at it.
Look how cute they are! They were all squeezing in to get a good look at us.
These momma’s and their kids were checking out this grandma and her grandkid. It was pretty neat. I’m a city girl remember. This is a real treat for me.

They have all kinds of water collected from the snow coming from the mountains. It’s beautiful fertile ground here.
We stopped at The Big Texan on our way to Wyoming. It’s in Amarillo, Texas. Have you seen the movie, “The Guilt Trip” with Seth Rogan and Barbara Streisand? It’s about a road trip with a son and his mother. They have a scene where they stop at The Big Texan and Barbara Streisand’s character eats a free 72 oz steak dinner. This is the place. The staff wear cowboy hats and there is a singing cowboy that goes around and sings to your table. I had a wonderful prime rib lunch for $14.00. This will be our stopping place from now one.
Happy Knitting friends.
I have road trip project I’m working on. I’ll show you soon. It’s a shawl.
