I've had enough of your attitude young man! You are in need of a nap and a time out! To which satan replies, “No, I don't wanna take a nap! You're not the boss of me!” (What a little crybaby whiner-pants he is.) I tell him, “Yes, as a matter of fact, I am the … Continue reading You’re not the boss of me!
There are advantages to being self-employed. I as the employee (me) never have to waste time coming up with reasons (excuses, lies, whoppers) to tell my boss (also me) why I can't make it in to work. (I'm a mean boss. I never let myself get away with anything!) I found some real whoppers on … Continue reading What a whopper!
It is time for another story from the ranch! Before we had the house built and running water indoors, we dug a ditch for the spring water to get to the pasture the cows were in.

My husband suggested putting in a pat of butter to make it savory. So I did. Then the physics lesson in thermodynamics began. (I … Continue reading I’m melted butter
We are just one week away from celebrating Thanksgiving here in America. I like the idea of a reminder to celebrate thankfulness, but also realize that it is something I need to do every day, not just once a year. So I have been striving to have an attitude of gratitude in 2020, well because … Continue reading Attitude of Gratitude
I hope you are in need of a good laugh today, because boy do I have a doosie! I was reminded of this story today as it was so squishy by the chicken pens. Brace yourselves! The recipe for this soup is as follows: Take 8 feet of piled up snow, let it melt naturally … Continue reading The Chicken Poop Soup Story
We've all been there and done that. You know, mistake the lyrics of songs. I remember a commercial in 2009 from T-Mobile that had a couple in a car and the guy was singing a song by Def Leppard. He incorrectly sang the lyrics as “pour some shook up ramen.” His wife/girlfriend was able to … Continue reading What?
I know that is a pretty sad looking picture of a chicken with this post but, “There is a time for everything and a season for every activity.” (Ecc. 3:1 [NIV]) This is molting season. I learn so many lessons about God at my ranch, so I am going to share one with you now. … Continue reading Molting Season
Today we're going to start with a little time travel, all the way back to last millennium. I recall the moment exactly. (Full disclosure, I'm a bit of a nerd.) I was in 7th grade.
