We saddled up one dreary morning this past fall, and trailered down to Three Circle to round up a pasture full of young cows to move them out to another range. As we got there, it started to darken and get colder. By the time we headed out, the rain/sleet was blowing sideways and we were all quiet and dreading the long cold day ahead.
As we rode out of the yard, Amy splashed up the driveway, snug in her warm truck.
With our horses trying to spin to get their hind ends towards the wind, and our own collars up and hats pulled down, we stopped to say a quick "hi". Amy rolled down the window and cheerily sang out. "Oh hey, I see you guys are headed out lifestyling today!"
Shocked silence and then the first real laughter of the day.
We use that phrase a lot now.
Cause that's funny.
Best laugh as cry.
