Lone Star Feed Hats

If you’ve ever traveled thru the Lone Star State, you’ve probably run into someone wearing a Lone Star Feed & Fertilizer hat. This 4th generation family-owned feed and fertilizer company, based in Nacogdoches, Texas, is arguably more famous for their hats than the great feed products they’ve been producing for the last 90 years.

Squirrel for Hire

I suck at math.  On a primal, dismal, below the surface level.  Adding and subtracting are important so you can check your bank accounts.  Fractions are important when you’re baking cakes.  Simple fractions that is, like 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and MAYBE a sneaky 1/3 or 2/3 if you feel like getting fancy.  Division is important…

In Defense of a Waitress

Good morning everyone!  I have something to share with all of you that has been weighing on my heart this past week.  Mostly, I try to keep this blog to light-hearted stories, recipes, nature pictures and such.  I am not a fan of soap boxes or high horses.  But today, I am jumping on my…

Gophers, Deer and a Desk

This past weekend marked opening day of deer season in Texas.  And, considering we have a half of beef and several wild pigs in the freezer, I have decided to trophy hunt.  In other words, unless it is a massive buck, I’m just gonna sit and watch and enjoy being perched in a tree.  Alone.…

Wild Game

With Thanksgiving a very recent memory, I would like to reflect on what I am thankful for.  I realize, as I troll social media and the internet, not everyone approves of hunting. Or raising your own food.  And, I find it rather funny, that I was not a hunter until I met my husband in my…

The Cowboy State

Here is the last post from Wyoming until at least next summer.  Me, my sister Rita, her new baby, Athena and my Addie all took a day trip into the mountains just outside of Laramie.  While down low, the weather was quite warm, things changed dramatically as the elevation grew. Snow greeted us as we…

Auntie Rachel

As you may have gathered from my last post, I’m an AUNTIE!  Auntie Rachel.  I’ve never been an Auntie before.  Although, I am happy to report I have several lovely Aunties as examples.   So I know what is required of Aunties from day one.  Pictures.  Lots and lots of pictures.  Snacks.  Treats.  Homemade rolls.  Sleepover’s. …

Gone Fishin’

The men and boys in my life love to bow hunt.  This has never appealed to me for various reasons.  Bow season is still hot in Texas.  Which means the mosquitos are still awful.  And, you can’t wear repellent.  And it’s hot.  And well, I just don’t have time for all that. However, I do have…

Sweet Home Alabama

Remember that Pitcher Plant bog a few days ago?  Well, it wasn’t the only thing we saw during our weekend trip!  While my large self cannot fit into my bathing suit at the moment, it didn’t stop me from enjoying the sun, sand, and company. Addie could hardly contain herself and as soon as we hit the…
