My husband and I love to trek through the narrow back roads of the county from time to time just to pass the time.  This past weekend we traveled over some of the lesser known to us and uncovered many pleasant surprises that these older tapered lanes held.  There were unusual rock formations, sand islands in the center of an overgrown...

I know lots of you were born and raised on farms. I was not.  I know you understand about cows and the vaccinations and the “surgeries” done to some of them. I do not.  The pastures that are home to our cows are green and pristine; there are no bitter weeds, no sneezeweed, no thistle growing in our pastures. But do you...

I may or may not have confessed how much I enjoyed school. What I enjoyed most was the times I could get out inappropriately.  There were the times that I tricked my parents into believing I was in school every day all day long.  Now, do not think I was habitual in my skipping school, but I did pull a few tricks. Some of them turned...

I agree. There...

Do any of my readers have a bucket list?   I am sure that you do, since nearly everyone does.  Some would be gratifying and some, like mine, will be outrageous and animated.   Of course, like most of you, I have places I long to visit, like Paris, Ireland, New York, and to be served afternoon tea at The Savoy, along with its...

Spring has sprung! Out on our cattle ranch the pastures are green and lush and the yellow wild flowers are prolifically blooming  all in the  abundant green grass. Poke salad is sprouting, young and tender, against the old barns and outbuildings. All this beauty just makes me want to set or maybe lie down on an old quilt and just...

Before you start to read, I want to make sure you understand that this is my personal little “soap box” that I am standing on today.  These are my feelings only.  You are welcome to disagree with me.  We have heard so much about bullying in schools, in the work place, and just about everywhere people gather together...
