Slim, the misses, and the kids come out of the tent. Slim gives Delmonico the rolling pin back. The misses and kids put there things in the wagon. Slim gives each kid a hug and kiss as they climb into the wagon. He helps the misses into the wagon seat, gives her a kiss, and says his goodbyes. The misses heads the wagon northeast. "I'll see ya Thursday night."

He comes up and tells Delmonico somethin' and points North. Huh

Be careful Slim, there was a roundup boss dissapeared last year down on the South Loup.  Him and the whole crew dissapeared.  Even the remuda.  All they found was a bunch a grasshoppers hangin' round camp, they was usin' brandin' iruns fer stakes and playin' horse shoes.  But that wasn't the really sacary part.

Since Delmonico knows he's got Slim a bit skeered of the grasshoppers which are really Rocky Mountian Locusts he gives him one more thin' ta worry bout.  "Slim don't worry 'bout the grasshoppers, they sleep at night.  But the crickets come out at night, the ate a whole fencin' crew up on the North Loup 2 years ago."

One of the Bohunks yells at Slim in his Czech accent, "You better drop that iron, with all that running around, you might brand yourself."
Slim stops yelling, and running to and fro. He says, "That is a good ider". He puts the iron back in the fire. He starts running to and fro, again.

Runnin' a round like a chicken with it's head cut off, (yes folks they really run with their heads cut off) Slim trips over a large cow flop. (Ta those who don't know what cow flop is, it ain't nothin' but cow poop that ain't dried enough ta be prairie coal.  A 3.5 inch floppy comes from a small cow. Roll Eyes)

Fourtunatly Slim don't break no bones when he falls in the soft sand.  Unfourtunatly he falls in a large patch of sand burrs which is a common member of the grass family that grow through out the sandhills in large patches.  The seed of this plant as the name sand burr implies has a lot of stickers on it and hurts really bad when one falls in a large patch. Shocked Shocked

Before Slim finds out how well the fence crew likes him by helpin' him pull these nast things out maybe he will  maybe Google us up a picture of this grass of the genus Cenchrus.  (Delmonico don't Google this stuff up. He's got somethin' better'n Google for normal houshold use. Grin)

My wife and 18 (or is it 19) kids live in Wash-a-sand county, WI. We get nice crops o' these. I hate it when I step on one with me bare feet. One of the kids, when she was too young to walk, was in the playpen. She started crying. The misses couldn't figger why she was crying. It turns about one o' these nasty critters jumped into the playpen and into her mouth. Ouch!  Shocked
