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
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!) They have eight legs, and are easily recognized by a pair of grasping pincers and a narrow, segmented tail, often carried in a characteristic forward curve over … Continue reading Scorpions
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!
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
I am currently listening to crunching noises. We got a new box of beef cheek chews for our five dogs. These last a lot longer than the cow ears we used to get. The dogs each have their own particular spot they take their chew toy. If another dog strays into their territory, low, rumbling … Continue reading Guard
It’s not rocket science
This is the post I was originally planning on posting today, when the Henpecked post began flowing through me first. (Gotta take those teaching moments when they arise.) So please enjoy this one too! I remember exactly where I was on July 20, 1969. We were all gathered in the living room of my Aunt … Continue reading It’s not rocket science
White go go boots
I love taking walks at the ranch. It is quiet and I get to enjoy the glory of God's creation. In the fall, some of God's creations produce little seeds that become burs and stick to my socks and pants. It is very irritating to take time to pull off all the burs my pants … Continue reading White go go boots

I love it when I'm offered more! Don't you? Especially if it's free! Well that's whats going on here, right now, this very second. In my previous post, Rescued, I was sharing about the man born blind that Jesus healed. (See John 9) He was taken before the Pharisees where they questioned him twice about … Continue reading Click here for bonus content
