BREATHLESS

Look up in the wild blue yonder. It's a big old turkey vulture. It's a seven forty seven. Nope, it's Super Nezzy! Faster than a mad speedin' cantankerous bull. More powerful than a cornered ticked off mama cow. Able to leap tall corral panels in a single bound. This mere mortal Ozark Farm Chick commonly known as Nezzy is now a woman of steel eatin' only a small bowl of Quaker Oatmeal and a slice of whole grain cinnamon toast instead of carryin' Krypotonite.
Mornings begin early here on the Ponderosa and this one was no different. We were gonna load out cattle prior to Hubby goin' to work. Breakfast was finished, Hubs four star lunch was packed and his water thermos filled with cool sparkling iced well water. It was six O'clock AM and dark as burnt toast! I notice the love of my life puttin' on his camouflaged manure stompers and asked what the heck he was doin'. "Off to herd those cattle and separate 'em to load the cattle trailers" was his nonchalant answer. I commenced to tell my man that I'd be as much help as Blind Bartimaeus blindfolded in a lunar eclipse bein' night blind and all when he handed me a flashlight. Yep, not the big cattle stick I usually carry, not a hot shot but a flashlight! As I have often stated, my favorite sayin' 'round these hills and hollers is, "ya want me to do WHAT???" I had that feelin' way down in my innards that this was not a good idea and in so many ways just wrong but bein' the good helpmate I am I bolted out the backdoor in my yoga leggins covered with some old CK jeans, a cute little tee topped with a Carhartt hoodie, my Nike' manure runners and ladies and gentlemen....my trusty Maglight! I am after all Super Nezzy!

We blindly corralled and penned the critters then began sortin' and cuttin' them out according to sex and size. I was flingin' gates open and stepin' in to turn certain bovines when all the sudden I flung the gate open at Hubby's command and a group charged. I did not have my stick, all I had was my Maglite which did not detour the black furry animal who ran right into me nestling it's head into my chest. Nope it wasn't cooing or sayin', "do ya love me Mama," he just wanted me outta his way....now!!! The Dark Knight pushed his nose just under my ribcage below the Grand Tetons liftin' me up off the ground. Lord have mercy, I thought I'd gone to meet my maker! Still hangin' on to my defense weapon with my left hand, the Maglite, I placed my right hand on the head of another bewildered steer and pushed myself back touchin' my tooties on Mother Earth once again. Gotta love that solid ground!

Baby, I was breathless. Gettin' hit in the chest with a full throttle locomotive will do that to a gal. I leaned up against the corral to locate my lungs , catch my breath and count all my fingers and toes. After we loaded three cattle trailers, I took my achy~breaky body and my useless Maglite back to the house to lick my wounds. As soon I a caught my breath I kinda felt like that rockabilly piano poundin' Louisianian who was the kissin' cousin of Mickey Gilly and Jimmy Swaggart, Jerry Lee Lewis. Singin' his boogie woogie country gospel rhythm and blues songs, Jerry's 1958 single fit my situation perfectly. When I think of the animal I came eye~ball to eye~ball with feelin' the heat of his stinky corn breath and the slime from his slobbers I just wanna sing, "You leave me aaah breathless...ah."

"BREATHLESS!!!"

  1. I'm glad you are ok. I bet a little sore though. The country life isn't easy at all for sure. I'm a city gal and can't imagine doing all that. Hopefully the rest of your week won't leave you quite so Breathless. Take care!

  2. I have a feeling you will be hurting more tomorrow. Glad you okay. Your a brave soul.

  3. Oh Nezzy...you are one amazing lady! I wouldn't last a minute up against one of the huge beast, the sight of them has me shaking!

    That's what makes you so awesome...a pretty and classy lady that can get in there and wrestle with the best of them! I'm glad you're okay my friend.

    Okay gorgeous, I'm off now to add you to my blog roll so I can keep up with your amazing life and the giggles that go along with it!

  4. Can't believe you didn't have a broken rib! Ouch, girl! But love the description of your brandname cuteness out there!

  5. Oh Nezzy, bless your heart. You have a way of telling a story that brightens my day. You take good care of yourself and I wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.

  7. Nezzy,
    I am so glad you didn't go meet your Maker today! But I have to admit, that was funny!
    Thank you for adding a smile to my face :)

  8. OMG Nezzy!
    Now that was really like dangerous my friend!
    You know there are those who have been killed by those critters!
    I am super glad your ok but tell hubby he needs to find a big guy to help him with that.
    Having grown up on a farm myself I know that kind of thing is nothing to mess with.
    Those steers were bulls once! Or are they still bulls? However, you be careful my friend, we all like having you around bloggyland!
    Big Hugs,
    Cindy

    Farmer now I am not.

    I sure hope you are doing okay now after that big meanie got a hold of you.

  11. Beautiful, brave, gutsy!

    Geez Louise. Does your family know how lucky they are?

  12. Ack, that sounds painful.. and rather frightening. I'm glad you're ok.. at least ok enough to tell about it with such great humour.

    "When I think of the animal I came eye~ball to eye~ball with feelin' the heat of his stinky corn breath and the slime from his slobbers I just wanna sing..."

    ... not Great Balls of Fire? ;)

  13. OMG Nezzy what a story!!! God Bless you are okay now and survived that...No wonder you are breathless...I was too reading this!!! You take care now...Dzintra♥x

  14. Yes...tough cookie sums it up!.....but so does dagonne hilarious writer!! Your real life adventures are a hoot to read, if somewhat dangerous to live out. Thanks for posting and again, for my giggle of the day! Take CARE, and Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. What, no video? Just kiddin'. It sounds like you and hubby both had your hands full, though it sounds like you could have used something more threatening than a Maglite. You are Super Nezzy for sure. I hope you got some time to curl up in a designer label robe and rearrange the damaged parts and that there wasn't too much damage.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am glad you are okay...Those cattle do have a mind of their own.

  17. Oh my, Nezzy --you are one cool, gutsy gal! I love your spirit!

    I am glad you are okay. :)

  18. It's amazing the power there is in a animal that size isn't it?! I was raised on a farm and will never forget the day my dad was on a horse and the bull charged him...lifting him and the horse up and over his back. Our wonderful farm dog rushed to dad's rescue and saved him. Dad was black and blue for a long time. I bet you will have some of that too and I hope you don't have any broken ribs! OK, so does that get you out of having to cook Thanksgiving dinner? ;D

    ReplyDelete
  19. Holy Cow! You must be OK - you blogged! I bet you are hurtin' a bit.... You, super Nezzy need a better weapon - a BIG STICK or maybe in the dark one of those Darth Vader lighted swords would scare those 4-legged beasts! Take Care...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Glad you are okay, been there in that exact thing ,only on the ground instead of in the air and I know for shore it do scare the blazes out of ya!!
    You will be sore I can bet you on that.
    Rest and recoup before turkey day.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, no! That is downright scary, Nezzy!!

    So glad you escaped relatively unscathed. I have a feeling you're gonna be hurting tomorrow, though.

    Hugs to you.

  22. Hi Nezzy, you've stopped on several occasions and left such sweet comments on my blog! I love reading your adventures..whoa, a smack in the chest and you're still standing..now that's testament to a strong southern' gal! Have a great Thanksgiving!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Your encounter with the animal in the "dark as a burnt toast" morning, was no laughing matter. You had both courage and luck.
    Hope you can now say:"All's well that ends well".

    ReplyDelete
  24. Glad you're gonna be fine, but.. ouch.. and scary! Why does anything with cattle always have to involve pain? It does around here anyway! Take good care of yourself, Girl, and have a nice long hot soak in the tub! Stay safe! -Tammy

  25. Oh Nezzy Sweetie...
    You have got to stop playing with the BIG guys. They will knock you down every time, and talk about stepping on your toes, they don't understand Achey Breakie sweetie. I just do not know how you do it.

    I loved this write tonight. You always make me smile, and find humor in the kinks that get thrown your way. I love that most about you sweet friend. I bet you will be sportin a few bruises tomorrow. Those jammies may be callin your name a little longer than usual in the morning.

    Have a beautiful Thanksgiving sweetie. Please know that you are SO loved. Try staying out of trouble tomorrow will you. Many hugs sweetie and SO much love, Sherry

  26. All I can think of is "OUCH" that had to of hurt some. Glad you're ok although I imagine a little on the achy side.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well now that we know you are okay, breathless...but okay. Let me ask.

    Is it turkey or beef for Thanksgiving? :D I vote for beef, only right. :D

  28. Have you ever thought about insuring those Grand Tetons? Between the Shingles and the cattle, they have had a bad year! Praise God you are okay. Your Guardian Angel has worked overtime this year!

  29. Dear--
    I don't know ANYONE who has such a way with words as you do.
    I glad the big black one didn't take you down too far. Take care of yourself and watch out for charging animals.

  31. Oh my Lord! Nezzy, sweetheart, I hope you are okay. You are a brave lady! That encounter with the Dark Knight would have been my death sentence...phew!

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my stories. I treasure you.

  32. You be careful!

    You will probably be one sore mama tomorrow.

    HUGS and Happy Thanksgiving.

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOL! "...right below the Grand Tetons." Oh, Nezzy, I can picture it now. Just glad you didn't end up with a hoof print on your forehead. Now that would be rude!

    Happy Thanksgiving, my fellow farm girl friend.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh, Nezzy, I could not help but giggle while reading your post. The way you write puts a smile on my face. I am so happy that you are ok. Happy Thanksgiving!!! Hugs~ Tami

  35. That was a bit too scary for this city girl. I think I would've not only been breathless but peed my pants too. Hope you're okay!

  36. haha. you are amazing...what an adventure...and you right there in teh thick of it....you are super nezzy...

  38. Mercy me, Nez, I'm thankful you are in one unsquashed piece. Whew.

    Been around cattle most of my life and well I want to say, there are better ways to become breathless. I'm just saying.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  39. Oh my GOSH! Well, I was breathless and on the edge of my seat through this whole story! Did you get ANY sympathy at all from hubby? Did he at least make you a hot cup of tea? How are you now, back to normal now?

    ReplyDelete
  40. You are one tough, brave grandma! Jerry Lee ain't got nothing on Super Nezzy! Glad you're okay!

  41. I was breathless just reading this! Never forget your stick when dealing with cattle... So glad to hear you're OK. You're a tough and amazing person!

  44. Wow, what an experience! You are one brave woman, I have to admit. I am not sure I could face these magnificent animals up close, even though I love to admire them at a distance.
    Glad you are fine.;)

  45. Oh my Nezzy - I'm so sorry that Bull misbehaved and got you in that kind of a position. I do think, however, you should compile a book with your stories. Your humor is fabulous - a godsend... and would certianly be a best seller!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Holy Moly, what a story. Only knowing you were typing it out kept me from getting too concerned and could enjoy your delightful way of storytelling.
    Cows don't try to hurt, they just want you out of the way. I once had a calf leave me sitting in the poo counting the birds the flew around inside my brain. They are just so strong.
    Do be careful.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Nezzy, YOU ARE A GENIUS OF A WRITER AND YOU HAD ME GOING......dearest, BLESS YOUR LOVIN' SOUL!!!!! Much to be thankful, non?

    Gotta run, but I am coming back to reread this piece of sheer genius and humor as well as HIGH ADVENTURE!!! Anita

    ReplyDelete
  48. thanks Nezzy for the first laugh of my morning. maybe you should go to Mexico or Spain and try out for Bull Fighting. ha ha. loved the story, glad you are still breathing. I know you are or you could not have typed this story.

    ReplyDelete
  49. You're a tough farm woman that's for sure. I was afraid your ribs were broken. Does a Maglite give enough light? I am relieved you are all right.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wow, getting pushed aside by one of those majestic beasts could really ruin your day. Thanks for a little smile this morning Nezzy!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I am so glad you are okay! That could have ended really bad. Glad God was on your side :)
    Wishing you a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving. May you always have much to be thankful for.

  55. OMG, I loved your post took me back to what happened to me as a kid on the farm, love your humor. Glad yur ok though, nasty beast ! I have been squished between the barn and a big ole bull when I was a kid, woooweee that smarts, I was bruised alright, my dad had to rope him to get him away from me, also been headbutted by a ram,that hurts! its amazing what happens to ya on the farm. Have a safe day !

  56. You are right...cattle is an adventure, but not always the kind you want.

  57. bad bad steer - guess you just can't trust them
    Good to hear you are ok and no broken ribs. all the best

  58. never a dull moment on the ponderosa! :)

  59. It sounds like your "womans intuition" was right on the money. Thank the good Lord you were okay. As much as I'm glad you're still with us, I do wish I could see a video of this. Just for the laugh.

  60. Nezzy, sweetheart I'm so glad you survived the stampede.
    I loved your story especially the bit about the Grand Tetons, I laughed out loud.

  62. Oh My! I'm glad you're okay. You had quite the adventure! This just confirms in my mind the reason I work with goats instead of cattle!!

  64. Oh My..you are a lucky Farm Chick. Do you suppose you need a horse..or a cattle prod..I am thankful you are ok! I bet you are sore and black and blue for sure. Those cattle are big and strong..and can toss you around like a rag doll.

    Perhaps someone who gets up in the dark of night to herd cattle will be cooking Thanksgiving Dinner for you. Take care and Happy Thanksgiving:)

    ReplyDelete
  65. LOL! Glad you are ok. There are few things scarier than a peed off bovine chargin' right at you! We always had to work cows on foot and I was always in charge of the head chute. Catching them at the exact right moment, not slamming the chute before they get their head in and not waiting so long that they squirt through......such memories!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a sweet comment.

    God bless you and have a good Thanksgiving!!

  67. Oh my, glad you are okay. I am glad that was not me in the Carhartt and Nike manure runners. Those cows are huge.

  68. Uff-da! as they say in my part of the country. Glad you survived the assault. Are your lungs back to their full blown shape? Take it easy the rest of the week...k?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh my! I am so very, very glad that you are OK!! I helped with cattle a couple of times and I must say, it scared the heck out of me. I didn't get hurt, just stuck in the mud at one point. Oh my, the boyfriend at the time had to come 'save' me and he got stuck in the mud too! It was hilarious!! Thanks for reminding me. :-) So glad you are alright though, Nezzy!!!

    Have a Wonderful & Happy Thanksgiving!

  71. Oh that is not fun! I've been there. I had a cow fall on me from the top story of a cattle trailer. I thought I was dead, but I only bruised my ribs and strained my wrist. Whew! Glad you came away OK. It sure makes you appreciate the power of those critters though!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Holy Smokes Nezzy!!!! Sooooo glad you are okay. I think you just earned your Super Woman cape!

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving. It's a pleasure visiting your blog, getting to know you and reading about your wonderful life. You are truly blessed.

    Have a great day, xo jj

  73. That was one adventure story I did not excpect on Thanksgiving. So glad you are OK, well maybe still shaking a tad.

    When my DAD was a gentleman farmer, my mother would not let us girls assist him in his duties, but it was OK for my brother. Since I was adventurous, I often felt discriminated, but after this story, she may have saved my life!

    ReplyDelete
  74. My goodness! You had me laughing and gasping at the same time. You just confirmed what I already knew, sheep are a lot easier to manhandle than cows... Here's to a blessedly wonderful Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  75. You are quite a writer Nezzy! I don't know how you have time to read all your comments but I just want to say I'm glad that black beast didn't take you out! Get a better weapon soon!!!!! Better it hamburger than you.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
    Hugs!!!!!

  76. You are Super Nezzy! I'm glad you are alright.

    Perhaps you should collaborate with maglite and come up with one that has some sort of cattle defense attachment.

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

  83. Thanks for coming by my blog to visit and leaving a comment. I´m sorry, but I had to laugh at this story. What are you doin´ girl?! Sounds like you just made it. Glad you´re ok. Love your sense of humor and writing!

    ReplyDelete
  84. "...as much help as Blind Bartimaeus blindfolded in a lunar eclipse..."

    Now, THAT'S blind!

    Good lord, Nezzy, I can't believe that after all that, you STILL helped the Hubster load those trailers!!!!! I sure hope he appreciates what a super-wife he has; if Fred handed me a flashlight and told me to get into manure runners at 6am...well, let's just say it'd be a looooong time before he saw any action in the Grand Tetons or areas south.

    If I were you, I'd have ditched the Thanksgiving turkey and had Dark Knight Roast instead!

    I'm sure your super powers will have you and running again soon, but, hey, take it easy, okay? This has NOT been your year!

  88. Oh Nezzy I laughed so hard my ribs hurt. This was so good, I went and go my husband and read it to him. It was too good not to share. I needed a good deep belly laugh and thank you for this gift. Laughter is like a medicine and I needed this medicine. The funniest part to me was the Maglight. I can just picture your clinging madly to that light as all this was taking place.

  89. What a great story. Glad you are on the mend. We took some cattle photos also this week all from the vantage point of a car or on the other side of the fence.

  91. Nezzy..I DID have a wonderful Thanksgiving..but DID NOT make those pies. My daughter did...the little cupcake and cookie baker. Baking is her thing..I don't do much of it anymore. I like to bake..but..I've just petered out! Your comments always make me feel so much better. Always.

  92. WOOOOOOOOOO NEZZY, I believe I saw your TALONS ROSE hanging off the horns of one of those bulls.....I could just see you precious, sporting whatever you please in elegance and grace while doing your daily chores on the PONDEROSA!

    You are awesome. I giggle every time I come to see your cattle and the encounter with "the grand tetons...."

    Stay on the ground so you can write me sometime. lol

  97. Nezzy, dang! You need to take care of yourself. I am glad you are ok. But, well, you need to take it easy and get everything else feeling all better before you add any other kind of bumps, bruises and shingles.

    Hope you had a quiet restful Sunday, but some how I kind of doubt it. Thinking about you.

  98. By now, I sure hope you are rested up! HA

  100. Oh my word, Gal. I'll take my easy-peasy life any day over yours. Getting up at 7:30 for Zumba is about as active as this little town girl gets. I hope you didn't get too sore, nothing worse than sore Tetons.

    Oh sweet pea I have not laughed out loud this long since my Papa talked me into pulling the nose ring of the bull we had just put up in the cattle trailer for market due to the fact he kept breaking through all the barbed wire fences and the neighbors were complaining .
    There were alot of pretty calves that spring :)
    Oh sweetie God is good cause your still here to tell the story and relive the glory of one of those off moments that usually get deleted from family history :)
    God bless you my friend .
    Please take care and know I'll be praying for you and yours !
    Love Ya Nezzy :)
    Until next time
    Happy Trails

  110. I'm glad that you are okay after the run in with the cattle! Looking at the second photograph in this blog post, I wouldn't want that animal anywhere near me! He looks meaner than a junkyard dog!

  111. You had me breathless (again) as the story unfolded! I giggled at "Nike manure runners" and nodded my head with "you want me to do what!" And then I pictured you flying high in the air- I should have had no fear. I bet you really landed sweet as a ballerina.

    Hope you got more than a bowl of oatmeal as a reward after.

  115. Dear Nezzy, I had to come to visit you and Bernie today. You both are often on my mind, but I am such a rascally poor blogger that I just don't get around like I mean to. I will get better at it, because it is on my to do list to do, and eventually...Anyway, I came today to read up on your posts,to learn more about you and to thank you for your friendship. Your kind, compassionate, loving words are always encouraging to me, and I appreciate you dear friend. I am so thankful to have met you here in blogland. I look forward to getting to know you better, and to offering you encouragement, someday, as you do me. I hope your day is blessed with health, love and happiness. Much love, Debbie

  116. You really ARE Super Nezzy! Gosh Dern, I don't even fix breakfast and lunch for my husband, much less go out to herd cattle! (Course he doesn't herd any cattle either). I'm so glad you are okay. I'm also glad that you can make me laugh with a story that should scare the daylights out of me! I hope you at least got to sleep in the next morning. Take care of yourself brave Super Nezzy! laurie

  127. Hi Nezzy! Living in nature everyday will keep you going until your over 100! I love animals and used to live on 75 acres; I miss birding, composting, and the sounds of nature at night. When someone is sore from working outside its a GOOD hurt! You wrote on my blog a couple of days ago; thanks for taking the time. I have been a caregiver for so long, and with the death of my mom I am trying to get my own life back...I write about my days too, my spirit, my reflections. I really hope you'll become a follower of my blog even if you're so busy you can't read it all the time. I'll be looki' for ya! xoxo
