The morning pasture thrummed with the buzz of crickets. Plants like ragweed, ironweed, and many others that are nameless to me have overcome the grasses, which now are bent and brown. Nevertheless, the cattle, grazing to our west, were belly-deep in it. Of the calves, only their black and brown backs showed. We have finally identified the bull. He is as small as a cow and all black except for his face which is dappled with white.
There is the promise of rain this evening; the remnants of a tropical storm. It's raining now in Oklahoma City and we can hear far-off thunder. Crossing my fingers and toes. Let the rain come.
