I remember when I was in my late teens and early twenties. Hey, don't laugh! I can remember that far back! I knew absolutely everything, and felt like I was bulletproof. Nothing was going to come against me or harm me. Then I grew up when reality set in. I've been thinking a lot about … Continue reading Bulletproof
I, and I alone
“I am the ultimate authority.” Some folks truly believe this. “I, and I alone, am the ultimate authority. I make the rules for my own life and act accordingly.” The weather on Friday here in Colorado was awful! I checked the state highway cameras and saw it was low viability and the roads were snow … Continue reading I, and I alone
The weather lady on my local news channel was laughing while making her report. When asked why by a news anchor, she said, “It's because I have to tell you every Wednesday that we are getting another snow storm. It's becoming a trend.” I am so ready for spring. We have a lot of snow … Continue reading Hull pressure
A couple of years ago, one of our dogs was helping chase some cows back into a pasture. He jumped through the fence and cut open the skin on his leg on some barbed wire. It was just a little open flap of skin, and we have the medical supplies to stitch up animals, so … Continue reading Protective Cone
Rest easy, dear readers, this is NOT another tale from the ranch! But it does involve scorpions! (So reader discretion is advised.) Scorpions are predatory arachnids. (ie: spiders!)

I got a telemarketer who called my office so good the other day! He started reading from his script, very monotone in his speech, and then asked if the owner was there. I replied, “Yes I am, and I did the job exactly as you told me to, but there's blood everywhere! What do you … Continue reading Dead weight
I always feel sorry for that poor guy named Will. You know, when in the movies, the person in charge says, “Fire at will!” Fire at will is a command given to allow the troops to fire when they are ready. They use their discretion and choose their targets. It gives the soldier a greater … Continue reading Pink Slip
It just slipped out!
I recently had one of those situations, where I was caught up in the moment, and the words just slipped out of my mouth. But I was not embarrassed by what came out. I was outside shoveling snow. It was so peaceful and quiet, and I was just quietly praising God. I got so caught … Continue reading It just slipped out!
This is not your average Christmas post. You know me and math, so when I read this in the book, The Greatest Words Ever Spoken, by Steven K. Scott, I had to share it with you this Christmas. In the book, Mr. Scott has taken all the words of Jesus and organized them into categories. … Continue reading Christmas Math
Hold your breath
A man walks into a bar, shadily dressed in a trench coat with the collar pulled up and a fedora pulled down over his face. A livid scar runs down his cheek, and his two tone shoes are dangerously polished. In his hands he's carrying an accordion case. The bar falls completely silent. All of … Continue reading Hold your breath
