Mom Told Me Once—Tuesday, November 29, 2022

Mom told me once,

“Growing old is hard

Because, if you are not careful

You can start to feel useless”.

“So, remember”, she admonished,

Stay busy.

“Move. Stay interested in life.  Which will help you live. At this point of your life, you can not waste time.”

I miss you, Momma and Daddy.

I miss you!

From my world to your heart,




Up There, All Swirly and Curly—Monday, November 29, 2021

There!  Right there in the crisp air was a large swirly, twirly cloud

Magic so close.  Almost touchable!

In the Sigh of a Night Wind—Sunday, November 29, 2020

One evening, well actually during the night

The wind blew, all the loose and wispy weeds, here and there; driving some into our yard.

Of which, I thought it would be rather interesting to see the world through the ghostly paleness of summer dried weeds.

The Adventures of Boomer on Friday— by Mindy, Company!!! Friday, November 29, 2019

Hello!  It’s Me, Mindy-Lou, Min-Min, Kit-Cat Brown.  Today is MY day to visit with you!

MY HEAVENS!!! What a week this has been!


And Zookie

Came to live with us for several days.

Bella is the same size as ME!

And Zookie is smaller than I AM!!!

Then Loki showed up

And Houston!  They stayed with my sister, but they came over here lots!

Mom had to take lots of walks WITH the dogs, because the little, tiny dogs need fresh air and to ‘do their business’.

And the really BAD thing is THEY SLEPT on MY BED!!!

But I got along with everyone just fine.  They are gone home now…and I am back on MY bed!


Wings in the Air — Thursday, November 29, 2018

The sky is full of sounds

And color — storms play around us

There fun little birds flowing between here and there

The shadows cast by their little feathery bodies is more than a delight to me

The rain and the

snow shimmer here and there (we only got snow one day here and it was gone by noon)

And sometimes…there are other wings beating the air!

From my heart to your world,



Sorry I’m Late—Tuesday, November 29, 2016


Shannon and I left early this morning to make a run to the dump.  It’s a long trip, but a necessary one.

Now to get back to my regularly scheduled work!  Chuckle!

The kids made it home!  My critter sitting is done until they go back to visit the Grandparents in Nebraska or Kelly’s brother in Kansas.  That won’t be for awhile now as trips like that have to fit into school breaks.

Our indoor cat was very interested in Hermie the guinea pig, Snowball the bunny wasn’t nearly as interesting.  Probably because the rabbit couldn’t see the cat and the cat couldn’t see the rabbit.

The trap lines are busy….mice can destroy feed grains, cars and trucks, and anything else thier sharpe little teeth can get into, they also build nests in the hay, which is not good.  Not good at all. 

Terry is working on the corn combine….blowing out the filters, plus other job of maintentance. 

So not much happening here, but the same old stuff.

Oh…and the letter to Santa was my letter, that Momma saved.  I found it in her cedar chest after her death.  I thought it would be something fun to share.
