In today's economy, this was a real bargain for us. We went to our local produce stand and got all of the above for twenty three dollars. We're lucky to live near a place with fresh vegetables and fruits which sell at reasonable prices. Oh and Gary sold some soaps today at a different venue, so maybe soaps do sell but only to certain markets. It being after the first of the month might help too.
While we were at the produce market I noticed some baby cows in an adjacent pasture. I went over to see them and take their photo. Two smaller baby cows looked like new borns and the other was a male perhaps a few months old. As I got closer I noticed the smallest two were so thin, their hips and rib bones were showing.
They were so friendly, the larger one put out his tonque to lick me and the smaller ones were so curious, reaching up for my hand to cuddle them, to give them a touch of companionship. In my mind they were begging for help. These babies shouldn't be taken away from their mother so young. Their mothers are probably dairy cows.
I want to take care of all these helpless animals. I had to leave before I got myself in trouble. Then as we drove by the grocery store there were people begging at the exits. Sometimes I feel so helpless. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
