Dempsy's Mom Posted July 1, 2012 Share Posted July 1, 2012 (edited) That's what it feels like lately - Pool Lady. Every morning, about 6, while Dempsy is still snoozing, I venture out into muggy warm temps and start my routine of watering the front lawn. It makes us feel better when just the front looks fresh and green cuz' the rest of the lawn is shot. My routine always ends with fresh cool new pool water for Demps. Then, about 8 I open the front door and yell "Demps! Bottle chores!." I usually have to yell this about 3 times before the half woke up Dempsy rounds the corner in a trot and hops out the door. Off we go to mix milk. Dempsy has caught onto the idea of helping me separate the calves. He keeps two away while I feed two and then we reload the jugs and switch calves. Depending on the temperature, Dempsy usually sticks with me, but once in a while he disappears before we are done. I peak around the barn and I see his furry little butt bounce across the back lawn, full of the delightful anticipation of sinking his furry little body into his cool fresh pool water. There he lays, licking away and throughly enjoying his cool down. He would be so disappointed if I would leave the warm old water in his pool. It would really pop his bubble. So add "Pool Lady" to my job description. I feel awful for all those who don't have power in this ungodly heat. This drought could be a real sinker. Most of our crops are hanging on, but I fear it's just a matter of time. The farm economy may take a real hard hit. Anyway keep your babies cool!
