Wicked Walk 5/10/2016

So, I’d like to pretend my lack of posts were due to some life-changing event.  Like child-birth.  Or Jesus coming back.  But, in reality, I’ve just kinda been doing life.  I snuck off to the pub the other night (with my husband) and had a marvelous time.  I went shopping with my daughter for a…

It Rained. A LOT.

Last week, in Texas and across much of the country, it rained. In like, the second flood. We didn’t suffer as much as many folks, and for that I am thankful. Our neighbor’s hay on the other hand, it got a tad bit wet.  This is the creek, only it isn’t supposed to be here. …

Wicked Walk 1/3/2016

My first walk of the New Year was taken not on a Wednesday but on the holiday weekend.  My family and I made a long-over due trip to visit family in Mississippi.  My husband hails from this lovely state and much of his family still live there.  Addie and I managed to sneak into the…

Extras

Extra things annoy me.  And I am just as guilty of extras as the next person.  I have, let me go count…….30 coffee cups.  THIRTY.  That is almost a cup for every year of my life.  There are 4 people in my house, 3 drink coffee.  If we all used a different cup each day…

Wicked Walk 10/21/2015

Let’s try this again, shall we?  My fingers got ahead of my brain yesterday and some of you darling readers were delivered an almost blank post. I’m sorry about that.  Here we go.  Again. Meanwhile, back in Texas, there was a scarecrow trail. We went. And walked.  And it was 5:00 in the afternoon.  The…

One Down

Here is the end, as promised, of the two plus weeks I’ve bombarded your feed and e-mail with elk camp pictures and stories.  After today, there will only be cute chipmunk pictures and everything shall go back to normal for awhile. Wyoming Barn.  Any of you who would like purchase this as a gift for my…

Elk Camp

A few days ago I shared the travel pictures taken en route to elk camp.  Well, we finally arrived.  My sister, Rita, her boyfriend, Jason and their dog Atlas, joined us a few days later as well as some friends from Tennessee. I’ll not bore you with the details, such as 3 days of rain, Rita getting…

Wicked Walk 10/7/2015

Having been in the wilderness for over a week, I had lost track of the days.  Realizing on my evening hunt that it was, in fact, Wednesday, I began snapping pictures from my perch. Here is what I saw. This is the view to my left, see my shadow? View to my right……. And behind…

Getting There

On our pilgrimage out west we passed through the Land of Enchantment (New Mexico), Colorful Colorado, the Sooner State (Oklahoma), our destination, the Cowboy State (Wyoming).  And of course, we began in the Lone Star State, Texas herself. Here my husband and I are, heading out.  I may be the only elk hunter in history to…

Wyoming Sunrise

West Texas sunrises are difficult to compete with, at least that is what I thought.  Then I saw this Wyoming sunrise, as seen from my sisters front yard. The colors just kept getting more and more intense as the sun made it’s climb. Now, I’m not sure who the Best Sunrise award goes to. I…
