My life is like this jacket right now.   I feel like a  discombobulated cowgirl riding a tornado. Yeehaw! Instead of Pecos Bill, I’m Pecos Jill!   My feet hurt and now I know why so I bought this bracelet cuff online. My new motto.     We started calving on the exact same […]

“Excuse my messy house.”  — Said no straight man ever. The main entrance to my house is the garage. We have a front door, but everyone comes in through the garage and mud room. The dump rooms.  Dog hair and mud and sometimes a baby calf hanging out. Another New Year’s intention of mine.  I […]

Hello 2017!   I woke up happy this morning. That’s a good sign.     First day of the New Year….. Me ….. Happy!  YAY!   Then I’ve had this old song stuck in my head all day…. “I believe in miracles Where you from You sexy thing, you sexy thing you I believe in miracles […]

 Food I love food.  I love eating food. I love looking at good food. I love everything fresh and healthy. But I don’t like the preparation and clean up phase.  It seems like such a waste of time. ‘Time’ being my most precious commodity these days.  I’ve gone through phases in my life where I […]

While taking my spiritual fast for two weeks in December I had a lot of time to think. A lot of time to think about turning 60 this year. I think about it all the time. Not in a morbid way. In a way like this…. “Wow. I’m turning 60. I can’t believe it. I […]

OK. I know my title contains improper grammar. However, I’ve already spent enough time on this post so I need to move on. 10 things on which I’ve spent less time? whatever OK the gist of the story is this. I bought the little run down house in Crazy Town.   I was going to fix it […]

  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 […]

  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 […]
