Well i said i would write about so i rekon i better. So, what i figured would happen is i would wake up at the crack of dawn, have a quiet drive up there, feed a few cows, and come home...not the way it happened at all. Skipping details, we (me & my padre) headed out and it seemed like we stopped in every town from here to there. We stopped so he could show me where they use to take their tobacco, and i learned i have family in mayo or somewhere like that i didn't know existed, we stopped at Lowe's and some other store. It was really cool hearin all the old stories and seeing all the farms people have around. But we FINALLY get there after a couple of hours of driving and we pull in the lane and there is a big plantation. It was a gorgeous two-story white house and there was open land everywhere. So, dad showed me around, we loaded a bunch of hay on the trailer, blah blah blah. Im drivin the truck and trailer and he's on the tractor. We have to go on this one part of the road that runs over a pond on one side and a big hole on the other and its comin off a fairly good steep hill. My brakes werent doin me much good on the hill and it was really scary cause the road was just wide enough for my likin, and people who know me know i can't drive anyways. But i made it obviously. It is really pretty up there, we drove to the back where the river was and walked in the woods a lil bit. It was amazing. We ate lunch at Cowboys, made another stop at Lowes on the way back, and I went to sleep. Tomorrow is Valentines day-yuk! But it should be fine bc i am spending it at marshall's mud boggs! Whew-hoo!

So, i had a couple of adventures today. To start off with, in my public speaking class we had to get into groups and do a group discussion in front of the class. So our group leader volunteered us first. I hate speaking in front of people but i read the material so i figured when our "leader" asked us our opinions i would be fine...wrong! He asked the most complicated questions about fact. I had never heard the words coming out of his mouth, he had to explain what the words meant to us before we could half-way understand the question. I looked like a FOOL! haha i didn't care though i got an A. Surprisingly seeing that i was laughing the whole time. But when our group leader walked out of the room to put a chair back, our teacher said no one better be that complicated in the other discussions. Go figure i got the teacher's pet for a group leader. Some black kid that sits in front of me said good job boo-boo so i reckon i did alright.
Well, the rest of the day took a completely different turn. This is kinda a dumb, pointless story but it's typical Whit. My dad calls me and ask me to get the calves outta the hayfield, so there aint any of course. But i do see this one near the fence on the opposite side of the field of the other cows so i gotta check it out b/c of course i wanted to pet it! So after a few pics with it i go to leave and my stupid dog i call coyote chases the poor thing but where else, into the hayfield. So, as I'm crawling under the electric barb-wire fence, my dog is haulin tail after this new lil baby.As I'm chasing them feeling like an idiot cause my stupid mutt wont listen, what do i do? trip! I couldn't help but laugh at myself cause my dog immediately runs up to me. So, i went and picked up the calf cause he wouldn't walk without fallin over, got him out, beat my dog, and went home.
Coyote is pictured above.
All in all a pretty boring day. But i do have to wake up early in the mornin and help diddy put hay out in Jasper-fun! i aint been up there yet and from what i hear there are a LOT of rattlers. so wish me luck and come visit me if i end up in the hospital. hehe I'll let yall know. PEACE!!D<

So i guess I'll start out with something about school since it seems to consume me now-a-days. OK, so I attend SFCC & am taking an Anatomy and Physiology class and it is so hard. everyone in my class is so stressed and overwhelmed. I have a test this Wednesday and I would so love to drop this class except to eventually get into the Sonography program I must pass. So, wish me luck i guess.
