Ever kissed a bull?????

Long story....

In short, my Grandpa were in an incredibly old, blue Chevy pickup (the one that had real side steps on it)......

My Grandpa jumped into the bed of the truck to throw out the cattle feed to the cattle near the tank on the ranch.....

Meantime, I was watching him to my left through the back window...and when I straightend out land look to my right, a bull was sticking his head through the passenger window!!!!

"Grrrrandpa!!?? Grrrrandddpa!!??? GRRRRANDPA!!???" Finally, I got his attention and he just waved his hand and said he was a friendly bull. A friendly bull???

I sat still in the pickup while the bull looked at me through the window until Grandpa got back into the driver seat, the bull pulled his head back through the window, and we drove off!!

It certainly made for ONE of the best memories of my Grandpa. It was soon after that he got sicker with the tuberculosis, emphesema, and lung cancer. We certainly laughed together about that time together whenever we sat out on the porch and he would continue to smoke his pipe.

I was fortunate to have those experiences with him because I was the oldest grandchild. Many of my cousins and siblings have little to no memories of him.

What memories do you have that are lasting images of loved ones?

Ever been kissed by a bull?????? lol... My guess is probably not!!!! lol.....

cajunpet -- lol... no the bull didn't lick my face. I was scrunching to the far left of the bench seat to make sure... but, he did surprise the heck out of me!!! lol...

Hmmm... sorry that he wasn't able to take you hunting; however, I am sure that he smiles down from heaven above taking pleasure in being so proud of you!!!

sexyfitwoman - I am glad you can appreciate your Mother like that. My daughter gives me a hard time b/c I am working 2-3 jobs throughout raising her all the time just to try to make ends meet; and, when I didn't work the 2-3 jobs, I was at home more but had little money. It is a tough situation as a single parent to go through... especially, when the biological father decides that he would rather sign termination of parental rights rather than giving us the much needed child support... Oh, well....

I only hope that my daughter will appreciate the extra nine yards I have gone for her so that she could have things when I didn't.

Laters.... Good post.

avgjoe19602 - Sorry to hear about your father. Sounds like he instilled a good sound foundation of lessons for making investments....

Too funny about the cows thinking you are their mother though... lol....

racingfan3 - I wished my Grandpa had lived longer too. I got to hear many stories about Hondo Crouch, Pecos Bill, and so many others. He definately could tell some stories well.... wish my cousins and siblings could have known him as well as I had.

TxRose said "Honestly, I have never kissed a cow either -- but, almost kissed a bull!!! lol..." I was wondering if the bull had licked your face. No I never kissed a bull either. I have kissed my pet cats and dogs.

I miss my maternal grandfather, who hunted, fished, trapped, and trained hunting dogs for a living. I was with him when he dressed what he had hunted, and helped him feed the dogs. He taught me a lot about animals and how to hunt them. He did not kill more than what he needed to provide for his family. I really enjoyed my time with him, and told him I would love to go hunting with him, when I was old enough to do so. He passed away before he could take me hunting.

Keep On Blogging!!!! Have a great day.

actually YES I have kissed a bull, my family had 40 head back on the farm and my siblings and I treated them like pets they didn't let us know about the butcher they just went on holiday and we got a new skin for the floor

I only have one Grandfather I recognise and he died only a matter of months before I conceived his very first great grandchild....I wish he could have know I wish I could have told him....I wish he could have seen her but by the time he died he wasn't who he had been he had started fading away due to alzheimers I loved him he was my big strong grandpa, he was a farmer like yours, he loved his Orchids...he would go fosaking for Opal, he would give us small jars packed full of opal...

I still have Jewellery he made a big Beautiful Opal he polished and my grandmother set, I remember them sitting in the evenings and stringing the rosary for the parish.....going to church with him....and watching as he used his metal detector to try to find my fathers wedding ring he had plowed into the back paddock lol, they never did find that ring....he was my big strong Grandpa, I wrote his Ulogy to be spoken by my Aunt for me at his Funeral, he was my big strong Grandpa, as I got older he didn't shrink I just got taller....as he got older he wasn't weak he wasn't less he just faded into the myst like the ancient Mountain....
