** Young Ennis, played by the intrepid DeeDee, is experiencing technical difficulties.  Every manner of technical support is being employed to rectify this unfortunate computer situation, and she assures everyone she will return in full force as soon as possible, hopefully within a few hours of this note.  **

  • ...a love that will never grow old
Basque sheepherders earned thirty dollars a month plus room and board. This was substantially more than their potential wages in the Basque country, but they paid a high personal cost to earn these wages. Each herder had the responsibility of caring for several hundred sheep, with only a dog to help him. There were considerable risks involved. The herder had to account for lost sheep to his employer, a responsibility made especially difficult due to the threat of predators and hostile cattle ranchers. But perhaps the worst aspect of the Basque sheepherder’s work was loneliness. The herding cycle required him to be alone for long periods of time. In many cases herders often went months without seeing or speaking to another human being and had “only the sky and the dog to talk to.” Their limited English skills also curtailed their contact with others. There are accounts of Basque sheepherders who were overcome by loneliness and never regained their mental health.

Kaixo! Aizu!
Badakizu euskaraz?
 
I been waitin out here days for ya and some fool cowboy run off with my truck with my notes in it.
Whatever you do- including sex in the tent during a storm that would probably pitch you off your mount were you to mount a horse rather than a man-don't let them sheep stray. Joe'll have your ass, after Jack does, if you do. And another thing, don't never order soup, them soup boxes is hard to pack. I don't know why they are hard to pack-can't be any harder then them tent poles but who am I too question things. Just don't order em.

He must be pretty darn important to get over 500 sheep to stand still like that ...
I know, I am telling you this as a seasoned sheep trainer!  **

Dumb-ass mule no. 1:


%% If Ennis isn't here then who the heck is that guy in front of me? Huh? %%


((Picks up ears and unsuccessfully tries to focus eyes and brain))


%% He's just a blur, I'm too dumb anyways to figure him out. Would take two mules to make sense of a guy like that, don't ya know?

I'll just stand around here with the sheep and Mr. mystery guy, my heavy load of beans and all, getting my back broken, waiting for the boys to get a move on! %%
