Sometimes I am selling. Sometimes I am buying. Usually I am just watching. This helps when I have to do my year end balance sheet for my bankers. Note the term. Bankers. I have more than one. But by attending the sales, you can kind of get an idea what your net worth is. And how much you will be lying as you fill that sheet out. Much of the time, I take one of my grandsons along. It's been that way since I had grandkids around. At first, they think it is a neat deal. They sit and watch the cattle with great interest. After a few sales and thousands of cattle, they get so they are more interested in the candy the office girls give them. Or the pop that the other cat- tle buyers give them money for. Slate, my youngest grandkid, likes pop. He really likes pop. His Mom and Dad don't think he should have pop. They are funny that way. So I am pretty strict with him. I usually tell him he can't have any pop until he finishes his dinner. Usually. Not always. Be- cause oftentimes Leo gives him a dollar and he goes and buys his own soft drink. A while ago we were having lunch at the sales ring and I left him alone for a bit. When I came back he was pretty proud. He cowboy. I had marching orders on how to feed him. When I got him home later that day, he was asleep in his car seat. His mother came out to get Evan and was unstrapping his harness. "What did he have for din- ner?" calls me Baboo.
