Sunday Drive

Vernon said our highway was busy this morning… everyone is getting spring fever and going for Sunday drives, I guess.  Most people’s Sunday drives are leisurely, sitting in a comfortable car, with heat or air conditioning or windows down if you want to smell Spring!  Maybe the radio on, maybe a relaxed conversation about the view or the upcoming week.

My sweetie took me on a Sunday drive, too.

In the Rhino.  I grabbed a blanket at the last second since it’s a tad breezy in it!  I didn’t have any long johns on, so the blanket was welcome against the wind chill.  I loaded Dally in the back, and zoom! off we went.

First of all, we weren’t on pavement.  We went back in the hills to check on the status of a pasture.  I’d bought Vernon a windshield for the Rhino as a Christmas/birthday/Valentine’s Day present.  Good thing.

We checked grass height (minimal) and reservoir storage (full!)…

But what a tour, and what a scenic Sunday drive!
