Odds and Ends

Can you spot Mr. Nielson?
Mr. Nielson is headed back to the ranch today.
Probably for a few weeks.
He is going to get some heifers pregnant...well, through AI.  
It's quite a process, and his L O N G blue gloves are pretty legit.
In his truck buckled in a seat belt (seriously),
 is a large tank of liquid nitrogen with semen inside from a sturdy bull named
 "Churchill Montana" who residences in Montana.
In nine months time, (give or take) we will have a bunch of little
calf's galloping around headquarters. 

The Little Nies all finish up the 2015-16 school year on 
Thursday, and then we will
drive to New Mexico to join Christian at the ranch and help out 
with this mind blowing task.
Before he left, I asked him to do about thirty mundane tasks
 around the house;
change light bulbs in stupid places (showers & oven), 
fix things, and tighten things.
It's so nice to have a strong man in the house.

We sat the Little Nies down on the couch last night before family prayer
and told them to power through these next few days.
No teasing, no messes, no skipping out on jobs and work, no 
more staying up late, and finally no more being late to school.
We can do this!
