How did you get tape of President Elect Trump meeting with Mitt Romney?

That was fun, including Evi's take.

I was surprised by the photo of what appeared to be Trump standing by the door shouting something crude or rude at Romney as he was leaving, when it turned out Trump was actually mouthing the words "Went Well" to the press, which was more disarming than the picture implied, at least to my imagination.

Border collies are the best. Ask the man who owns one.

Cow dogs (aka border collies and other herding dogs) are a real kick to watch. Below our property across the river there are fields where the cattle are pastured during the summer. Lots of cattle. We like to sit on our deck in the afternoons and watch the "cow drama". Cattle running around. Interacting with each other. For no discernible reason deciding to run or move from one side of the pastures to the other. The yearlings, just like any juveniles, screwing with each other.

The best though is when the cowboys decide to round up the cattle and drive them to an area where they will be loaded onto the trucks. (Coming to a McDonalds or Safeway near you soon).

The dogs are so smart. They know exactly what to do and how to make that bossy recalcitrant cow fall in line. Cutting some of the herd aside to go to different pastures. Sorting out the cows. They don't even need the cowboys on their horses. You can almost see the laughter on the dogs faces.....we use binoculars to get a good view of the show.

Yep. Life is really exciting in the outback. Entertainment is where you find it here :-D

Border collies are great dogs. My son has one. They are incredibly smart as DBQ indicated. When we take care of our son's dog I need to keep the dog busy. She will chase a stick or ball until my arm is hanging. Our son rescued the dog and had to break her from herding cars driving down the street, the Waterloo for many border collies. They get depressed if not given work for stimulation. They are the antithesis of govt. workers.
