In a matter of less than 24 hours my truck died (on the way to an appointment no less) and I accidentally emptied our cistern of all the water (on a slow response well...Lord have mercy!).  No big...except that they can't have my truck fixed until next week and I had friends visiting for the week...

All right! All right!  I confess...I do look at my ranking on Active Rain in hopes to one day be a little farther up the board.  So, I peaked at my competition to see what they were blogging about...just for grins.  I figured...maybe their blogs could give me ideas for future blogs.  It didn't ta...

Back in the day...or at least "my day"...kids like myself couldn't wait for the times when we could watch shows like Roy Rogers, Sky King, Bonanza, The Rifleman, Wagon Train and Gunsmoke.  It wouldn't be unusual to see scenes in those programs where there would be a "friendly" competition to see ...

Here's a news flash you probably didn't think you'd get today...frogs squeal.  I ain't talkin about croaking or grunting...I'm talkin squeal...like a pig or a bird in distress.  I was out planting a rose bush while my chickens were peckin and scratchin around me when I heard this incredible squee...

For those of you that don't live in Texas...we garden here year round...  We recently moved to our new place just outside of Boerne, Texas and it came complete with 10 laying chickens and a wannabe garden.  The folks that owned the place before us had good intentions of having a beautiful raised ...

I'm not Martha Stewart, Rachel Ray, Emeril (what's his last name?) or even the next Food Network Star...just a "rural lifestyler" that is longing for a piece of yesterday.  Don't get me wrong...I don't want or need to live in the past...but I do want to grab the simplicity of yesterday and incor...

While I am typing this blog I can hear our thirteen year old Golden Retriever, Sarah, wrestle between panting and labored breathing... we knew this day was coming.  We had noticed a change in Sarah this past February.  She went with us on a walk and got wore out towards the end...so not like her....

I remember getting knots in my stomach as I would face each day of potty training my kids...  I knew I needed to be consistent to make it work.  The trouble was...I had a hard time being consistent.  Not because I didn't want to be...but because I had two toddlers and a baby to keep track of in t...

It had been a  hot and muggy day and I had just started making dinner when my husband, Larry came in from outside holding an old shipping envelope...obviously with something in it.  "Wanna see something cool?" I have learned to respond to that question with great hesitancy in that you never know ...

It's been a long time coming...but my husband's website for his Ag news radio program is finally live!  Larry has been hosting the most popular farm and ranch program in Texas, covering 100,000 square miles, for nearly 14 years.  He took the show from a 15 minute spot on KKYX-680 AM to full hour...
