Picture this …….. Super Moon. 5:30 AM alarm Catch ’em. Feed ’em.  Saddle ’em. Load ’em in the dark. Meet up with the cowboys. Gather ’em. Sort ’em and work ’em. In my former life as an accountant with an 8-5, I found it consistently difficult getting to work on time. (for 20 years) I’ve […]

   Puncher had puppies in May. Don’t worry, it was planned…. Sort of. My friend was visiting with her good and famous cow dog, Gus. Puncher came into heat and I was like ….. “Why not?”   Those two words might just be the most motivating factor of my long and interesting life. “Why not?” […]

  Oh, I forgot to mention that during my last foray into “Crazy Town” I bought some real estate there. Really, I did.Here’s a picture of it. At the time I had a full-time job in Crazy Town. I was the personal assistant to the Mayor. The exact same day I closed on my new […]

  This might be the second “Most Embarrassing Moment in Agriculture” but pales in comparison to #1  So picture this….. I get invited to go help two good-looking cowboys get some cattle in to sort the calves off to go to the sale barn then take the mother cows to a different pasture. Picture me trying […]

  In my antics last fall riding with the cowboys, I have collected some more “Most Embarrassing Moments”. (More will be revealed later)  However, none can top the original …….. yet.   This was originally posted as a guest post for my friend Suzanne aka “Fairchild Farmgirl” . It is the benchmark by which all others […]

Crazy Town is a real town. I’ve been there. More than once. Lately. So have my friends. We reminisce about it often. It’s a fact that Crazy Town was founded on the exact spot of a derailed whore-train back in 1890. It’s many descendants revisit it frequently. You know who you are. You are my friends. […]

I ride a lot. Which means I think a lot. My favorite subject …….. no surprise…. Cowboys. I know what you’re thinking. And you’re right. I think about “that” a lot. But not today.  Today I’m thinking about real cowboys and how they handle their horses. And how much I love watching them. How lucky […]

My friend, the matriarch of this beautiful ranch, sent me a card this morning that read…. “Welcome to Autumn……. the finest time of the year!”     Earlier in the week she asked me if I’d seen the “Pitcher Sage”. It’s a delicate, periwinkle blue wildflower that grows in Kansas in the late summer and […]

  Wednesday I went to court. They granted the divorce. Even though I wanted it, I was surprisingly sad after it was over. Sitting in the hallway of our little courthouse with all the local thugs going to drug court. Actually that was the fun part.  Listening to them and all their problems. Watching lawyers […]

  A Mirage I’ve lived here for 8 months now.  About a month ago I discovered this pond. Which is about 100 yards from the front door of my cabin.  I’m not the most observant person in the world.  In my defense, I knew there was “a pond” over there. I just didn’t know it […]
