Bulldogs place 1st, take 16 events at Clint Wells Invitational
The bluster of a typical Northwest Colorado spring day was well met by Moffat County High School track and field athletes who walked away from their home meet victorious.

Last week I wrote about a recipe that I used to make when I hadn’t been married too long. This week I was thinking about when I used to make a spaghetti casserole that had hot dogs on top. The hot dogs were left long, but I made a lengthwise slit in each one and filled it with cheese. I think the cheese was from slices that had been cut in strips. The casserole dish was put in the oven until it was hot and the cheese had melted.
After two months of calving season here at Pipi’s Pasture, it’s almost over — as far as the actual calving, that is. (We still have to keep an eye on the calves and brand before “turn out.”) But we’re down to two cows — just two more to calve! When it comes to the chore involved with calving, the cow-checking is probably the most draining so when that’s finished, I’m grateful.
