This guy is coming to town. Well, not our town, but close by. Today (this afternoon). I’d love to go see him, but have to work. I am about as far from the political mainstream as the log floating in our creek… and as active. I have never been Republican or Democrat, voting instead by […]
I wish this were me. Last night went well. More later, as well as pictures of the finished product.
This is the ever-popular “drunken pumpkin” that I’ve seen lots of places. I don’t think this will be one of the pumpkins we carve tonight with the daughters, son-in-law, and grandson. It’s been raining and is cold and yucky out. Perfect weather for hunting the elusive pumpkin! Wish us luck! Will try to get some […]
I tried hard not to ever become the dreaded Mother-In-Law, but I fear it has now happened. It isn’t in reference to a current son-in-law, but rather to an ex, so don’t know if that makes it better or worse. Youngest daughter and I went to a popular multi-product store last night. In the parking […]
if you didn’t want to get out of bed today. Me either.
No, this is not a punkin we carved. I just thought it expressed my mood at the moment quite well. Eldest daughter is sick, so no punkin carving tonight. It sounds like she may have a bit of what I had. I promise I didn’t give it to her. I never even saw her while […]
This isn’t here now, but it’s coming. They say it’s going to come this afternoon – maybe up to 2″! Friends left suddenly on Tuesday afternoon. They were going to stay longer, but one of them had some trouble with their heating system at home and he was worried about his family, so they left […]
Slap me. I need to wake up. Friends came in yesterday from the deep south to stay for an indeterminate time. (Is it rude to ask someone when they show up how long they are staying for?) They went straight to the field and one rode in the combine with Hubs, the other one chiseled […]
Sooo… anyone superstitous? I’m not. Surprisingly enough, with all the ‘weird’ things that seem to happen around me, you think I would be. So, now… an early Halloween treat for you. A ghost story. This is a true story told to me by someone I trust did not make it up. When this girl was […]
I admit it. I was a town kid. Oh, I lived in a small town or two when I was young, but always in the town limits and didn’t have any exposure to farm country. Well, except that one memorable summer I went to stay with my cousins for two weeks on their farm. That’s […]
