My horse, Silver

September 20th, 2007 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

A couple months ago I was looking on the Internet and noticed *PRICE REDUCED* on a grey mare for sale that had caught my eye earlier this spring.  I called the lady and asked if we could come over to take a look as our boarder’s had left their trailer for our use while they […]

Upstaged by a cow

September 19th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Yesterday, some time during the 30th take with the fancy new video camera I received an email from my PR lady who said the magazine I interviewed with was asking for a picture to publish with the article.  Now, most people would have thought Oh, how nice,  but in true hillbilly form my immediate thought […]

I’ll never be an Anchorwoman

I had my day all planned to clean house (really, I did) but that plan got thrown out the window when I looked in the mirror and realized I am having a good hair day.   Normally, I would simply revel in that knowledge but when you’ve got a brand new fancy camera sitting there starring […]

Snipits from my family

September 17th, 2007 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

I told Vincent that my previous post was kind of deep so I needed to lighten the tone on the blog a bit.  Come on honey, you got anything for me?  Anything funny for Mom?  And with a total deadpan he says, I’m not funny Mom.  I won’t be funny until I’m about 23.  Then I’ll […]

On death

September 16th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

As it happens every year around this time, my mind turns to death.  I’ve learned that fighting it or shoving it into the corner of my mind doesn’t work but only makes my heart dwell on it longer.  No, better to bring it front and center to let it walk with me for a short […]

Oh that poor woman!

September 14th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I just received a call from a man in Wichita looking to board horses and after seeing the USAToday article he’s spent the week trying to find me.  I guess he called the City Clerk of Goessel and she said she’s received a lot of calls from people looking to contact me but with our […]

Moo is a very, very bad cow

September 14th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

and she’s in time-out right now for the next few weeks because she tried to run away again. One minute she was happily laying around in the grass by the garage and the next minute Ed’s hollering at me to get a grain bucket because she’s a half mile down the road.  She headed to […]

This is why I’m stuck in the past

September 13th, 2007 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

I was sent a video camera so could video tape me at my desk and around the farm for a website that’s connected to Good Morning America (I know, I know, but it will all make sense in a few weeks).  When they offered the opportunity I jumped at it but pointed out that our […]

Fall has arrived

September 12th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

and brought me a cold.  Well Ed calls it ragweed allergies but as I hacked up my lungs I pointed out that once it settles in your chest I think you can call it a cold.  We had temps in the high 90’s last week and five days later it was 59′ with rain.  What […]

Hey, I’m in print

September 10th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I’m pictured and quoted in this USAToday article.  I really wish the photographer hadn’t left the “skinny” lense at home that day.  But don’t Cinnamon and Mayberry look cute?
