VOL. II Issue 1C
Sale Day at the Fort Pierre sales barn meant an early day for the wranglers at the Ponderosa. They had to be down to Darrels place and have the calves sorted and ready for the trucks to arrive at 8am. They were ready, but the trucks didn't get there until 8:45. They were so long at loading that by the time They got back to the home ranch that Jerry didn't have time for Cheerios. Poor guy had to wait until dinner time for breakfast.
Darrel had 250 calves and all of them made it through the Summer and fall without coming up missing, unlike last year when 7 calves mysteriously disappeared. Long story short, the branding worked. Zero missing or stolen calves.
An early day for the rest of the crew made a late day for E.E. Hinkle. Mary woke him up at 7:30 to tell him he could sleep in. She also said he would have breakfast at 9 instead of 8. It was 10:30 before he had breakfast.
Harold and Mary left to prepare for the Lucinda Zilverberg memorial service at 11:30. By noon E.E. was Quizing Jerry as to when he planned to make dinner. Jerry said that there was Bean soup and funeral meat in the refridgerator. To which He replied, "Well, I was hoping you'd make pizza". Not being the funeral meat type himself, Jerry made a Digiorno pizza which was served at around 12:45. E.E.'s did not have his customary 3 o'clock "Boost", but he did eat a good supper.
