Non, non....

No, no, of course, this isn't in Versailles! Cattle branding in Eastern Washington last Saturday at CDH ranch where I had the great pleasure of meeting MB of Stanwood again and being introduced to part of her family! The ranch life can be followed here! Again, thank you all for your amazing hospitality! Back to Versailles tomorrow!

... vous n'avez pas la berlue, ça ne se passe pas à Versailles mais dans un ranch de l'Est de l'Etat de Washington aux USA. C'était samedi dernier, la famille de MB (qui tient le blog quotidien de Stanwood) à l’ouvrage pour le marquage des veaux ! La vie du ranch, c'est par ici ! Retour à Versailles demain !

How wonderful that you were in WA!! Wish I could have met up with you while you were here, too! At least we've have a little decent weather the past couple of day!!!

Good shot. I hope you and your Mum had a nice time. We sure did and everybody enjoyed meeting you two--too.
Yeah get back to work and try not to think too much. Yeah right!! MB

I guess branding involves getting kicked, hence the gentleman wearing baseball catcher shin protectors.

I checked out the link in your post. They describe their location as being in the middle of nowhere. That is an unusual destination for a vacation, especially for someone from overseas.

"Poor cow...it's awful!" please, give me some "lettuce"!

Coucou chérie! Je suis très contente que tu sois de retour, tu m'a manqué beaucoup!

What a surprise, welcome home!

Lowell said...

Sounds as thought you had a good visit. What fun to be able to share this particular phase of life on a ranch. That's quite a spread, too - 25,000 acres! Amazing.

Be safe!
