I had to go into Cortland early today. It was a gloomy and overcast morning. The humid weather has moved away, cooler, rainy weather has taken its place. When I came out of the Doctor’s office my driver’s car wouldn’t start! She had forgotten to turn off the headlights and the battery went flat. Fortunately she had a pair of jumper cables with her. A nice young man in a silver pickup truck pulled up next to us when he saw the raised hood of her car. He offered to give us a jump after she explained the problem. He did and within minutes we were ready to get back on the road. We thanked him and gave him a few dollars. Good Samaritans still exist! Bless you, whoever you are. We saw some pretty flowers on our way. There were red and pink lupines; orange,red and pink poppies; moss roses and colorful Sweet William. There were other flowers I didn’t recognize blooming. The small herd of Dutch Belt cattle had several calves. I think they are an interesting breed. The front and back halves are black while the middle is white. My niece calls them Oreo cows because their coloring reminds her of the cookies. We went past a herd of white and brown sheep with lambs frolicking in the pasture. The goats weren’t outside yet.
