Dude, I went to a Biker Rally

My mom has a picture of me when I was about 6 years old, riding my dad’s Harley with him.  That was the coolest I’ve ever been and the pinnacle of my biker days.  Except for a brief period in my early 20’s when I found myself in possession of a “crotch rocket” I couldn’t…

Bra in the Basket

So I went grocery shopping, because for some, strange reason the people who live with me think they need to eat on a regular basis.  I could live on walnuts, wine and coffee but they require more.  So after a hectic afternoon, plus a trip yet again to the dentist’s chair I finally made it…

Ombre Cake

So I am the oldest of 3 kids, my brother, Caleb, is 6 years my junior.  When he was born my grandmother came to stay with me.  When he came home he cried so much (we shared a room for a while), I asked when we could send him back.  My mother reminded me that…

Old Friends

Some things get worse with age.  Onions, potatoes, garlic, computers, grey hair, flab, swimming pools and Wal-Mart’s.  Just to name a few.  Other things get better with age.  Wine, certain cheeses, men, movies (with Hugh Jackman, Robert Redford, Julia Andrews, Charlton Heston and Meryl Streep.  Obviously, not all on the same film), books and true…

The Cabin

Each year, to celebrate another 12 months of wedded bliss, my husband and I sail off for an exotic, sun-soaked vacation.  We bath in the warmth of life, drink the wine of love all while white-robed, tan-skinned attendants tend to our every need. NOT! But we do make it a point each year to skip town…

Southern Baptist

As I mentioned Wednesday I spent a considerable amount of time attempting to convert my flock into bona fide Southern Baptists.  3 hours to be exact.  To be a Southern Baptist is quite simple.  Love Jesus, act each day as a missionary on the field of life, don’t dance (at least when anyone is watching!) and…

French Fries

My pre-teen pullets were allowed to have a couple of rooster friends over for a block party a few evenings ago. Being the good mother that I am I always give them lots of supervision and snacks. Both of these things are a must for a pre-teen party no matter the species. The snacks provided…

They call me Tater Tot….

I’d like to introduce y’all to Tater Tot. Now I’ve had Tater Tot, or Tater as he is commonly called, for about 8 years now. Tater and I go WAY back.  He packed out the first elk I ever shot and my husbands elk the same year… And he has been packing ever since….. But…

Fresh Butter

I went to Sam’s last week because I needed butter, coffee and chocolate among other things but these were top priority.  I noticed everything was a little pricier than normal, a pain I’m sure you too are familiar with.  Then I got to my beloved butter……shitake mushroom!  It was over ten dollars!  The 4 pack I’ve…
