I am at my mom and dad's now for a couple of days. Dad called to ask when I was coming home, and so I decided I'd better do it before school starts.
Today I went with him to the world famous Amarillo Livestock Auction. When I say world famous, I am not being sarcastic! We sat next to some people from Italy, and saw some people from Germany. Several people were there with their video cameras in tow. The Amarillo Livestock Auction is the largest in the U.S. Dad goes to the sale there every Tuesday.
I always went where my dad went when I was growing up, so this was really nostalgic for me. It has been an eon since I have been to a sale, so I had to relearn some things. I was a little nervous about scratching my nose for fear of having to make room for some cattle in the back of my little Toyota Rav 4, in addition to Addy who came with me. After the sale we loaded up the cattle dad bought and took them over to Dimmit. Dad promised me we would stop for ice cream somewhere along the road, but when it got to be about 7:30 I gave up and wanted to just eat something. It seems like I should know, when you go with dad, you can add about 4 hours to the trip. No ice cream, but mom had a great dinner waiting for us when we got back.
So on to the pictures I promised. . .
