The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Teasing the Dog, Friday, November 18, 2022

I know!

I know!

The dog is still learning

How to be a



As you well know

I am bigger


And I even weigh


Which means



Just for fun…

I LOVE to tease the dog!

Like  When on a walk

Show her something  Unique

Like the water tube

I run to the tube

Look in the tube


The dog comes over

Looks into the tube

I encourage the dog

To go INTO the tube

She does!

Gullible, you know

Then she comes out

And asked me:

“What was so neat about that?”

“Nothing,” I reply.  “Nothing.”

Winter’s Warmth — Thursday, November 18, 2021

We spent the afternoon listening to the psalm of the wood splitter

Making a pile of split wood from the ‘way too big to get into the firebox logs’.

We just do a few.  I sort and stack as I haul in the just-right size of logs, then when the big log pile gets too big. Outcomes the wood splitter.

Helping us stay warm and toasty throughout the heart of winter.

The Sound of a Turkey — Wednesday, November 18, 2020

I would like to introduce you to

Grace!  Grace is lots of fun…if she likes you.

She is a very smart turkey.  She is ‘in-charge’ of her farm, the hens, Black Beauty (the dog), and Shannon.

She is the terror of the cats—Willow and Oliver.

She also is very watchful of me…even though I am sorta kinda part of the farm..she makes SURE I only do the farm things she approves of.

Let me assure you that a large turkey flying at you is rather intimidating…just ask the delivery men.  (and me, (sometimes), and Willow, the cat…we all have experienced the FLYING toward you turkey experience.)

Never let anyone tell you turkeys are dumb.  They aren’t and they “FOR SURE” know who belongs on the farm and who does!

A Little Madness is Delightful—-Monday, November 18, 2019

After a predictably BORING morning,

There is nothing better than to shatter the calm

With a little bit of WILD horseplay!

That Extraordinary Weight of My Heart —-Sunday, November 18, 2018

Sometimes there are things within seemingly ordinary days

That blaze forth into my heart, mind, and soul

Often times its something so tremendously common, yet so toweringly wonderful

They seem to blanket the earth, or the sky, whichever it may be

The commonplace whispers to me with throbbing messages of distant lands or new places to see

Sometimes it an amazing gift of wings in flight

Or grumbling clouds filled with streaks of light

But always, always whispering all around me in slow rhythmic  movements

Silently the every day of common things weigh wonderful upon my life.

From my world to your heart,


Corn Report—Wednesday, November 18, 2015

a.jpgWell, here we sit, the corn is still standing, albeit growing shorter and shorter as the days go by.  The weather and the wind has started breaking the tops off the stalks, the moisture is keep the corn kernels wet, and the ground is muddy.

PIt’s not just us…it is everyone who has corn to shell and sell.

Still we wait. There isn’t anything else to do.

Corn harvest…not yet!

Sometimes You Just Gotta—Sunday, November 8, 2015

Sometimes you wake up and go…”I’m tired of the same-o-same-o.  We need to do SOMETHING different!”

Friday was a day like that for Terry and I.

JI’ve been painting in our house for the last several weeks…bathroom, bedrooms, front and back porch; plus all the other things we have been getting done in preparation for the corn harvest. Loading up hay for hay customers, winterizing both yards and pumps and well, the list just goes on an on.

Terry looked at me and asked, “Well, what do you want to do?  Got any ideas?”

Yes I did!  I have been missing Bladen.  It was many weeks ago we saw him.  He didn’t come for Halloween, because of basketball games that weekend. (And, of course OTHER more interesting things 8th grade boys like to do.)

So we called Misty and asked if we could come up for Blade’s game with Baggs Wyoming.  It would be a fast trip as there were hay customers coming the first thing Saturday morning, but we wanted to see everyone for a couple of hours and watch Blade play.

She told us to come on up, but don’t tell the kids…just drive in an surprise them!

So we did!


Three hours up, a few hours there, then three hours back.  It was a nice break!  Even nicer to get to watch Blade play.

Blade-1Breaks…they are very good in the scheme of things…seeing family and grandkids…priceless!

Your friend,



Stunning Sundogs from Milan—Tuesday, November 18, 2014

MilanLook at these outstanding Sundogs!!!!  Charlotte’s husband was on a fishing trip and shot these amazing photos of two sundogs.

More-SundogAren’t they just awe inspiring?

We are gradually warming up here.  Which is a very good thing!

We got the house winterized….THANK HEAVENS!!!!  Terry and I were really getting tired of that house and the pressure it was creating. YAY!!!!

Tomorrow we will begin to combine all over again.  It will be nice to have the pressure of the house and the harvest overwith.  Two more weeks….(I hope).

Well, off now to get something around here done…I think (I know it’s early) I will get my Christmas stuff out and start decorating…heck why not?  I’m not having Thanksgiving Dinner (we will be going to our daughter and son-in-law in Grand Junction.  🙂 )  so I can start slowly decorating.  Getting in the Sparkle of Christmas——– NICE!

Your friend,




Sunday, November 18, 2012

I guess I’m going to have to take the day off — I a bit tired for some reason or other and can’t seem to get myself together.

I will be back Monday, bright and early, that is for certain and for sure.

I hope you have a really nice Sunday!
