The Number 50

My Dearest Fellow Bloggers:

I'm absolutely (well...almost) speechless...today, I have reached the BIG 50...'n I'm not talkin' 'bout how old I am...even though I'm 50.

Today, the number 50 also represents the number of bloggers Following My Trail...it's truly unbelievable to me!!!

When I started blogging in October of last year, I had no idea of the social aspect blogging could provide. It amazes me how quickly I got hooked to blogging and how many wonderful people I've met along the way.

Every one of you have brought a piece of yourself into my life...and I thank you for that. It really is hard for me to comprehend why 50 wonderful, individual people have chosen to Follow My Trail...but I want to thank you from the bottom of my lil' heart for the honor.

May I leave you with a few photos from our fun day today helping our neighbors get their cattle ready to move tomorrow...

Being guided by Colt's ears...moving the cows
down State Hwy 78 to an overnight holding pasture.






Me 'n my lil' guy...the Coltster.







Blessings to all of my fellow bloggers from
JKs Rough String Ranch.

There's probably more than that cause there's more ways to follow than Blogger. But 'tis true you've arrived when you have 50;)
