Down at the River……

Given the fact we live less than 3 miles from the beautiful Neches River, I’m sorry to say we only visit it 2 or 3 times a year, at best.  This particular Sunday morning, we ran lines.  It was about 7:15 and as soon as we crossed under the Highway 84 bridge, we noticed a…

Wicked Walk 8/5/2015

Hello Peeps!  The Texas heat has been brutal, 106 the past few days and I’ve lost one hen to the temp’s already.  So my family and I decided it would do us good to cool off a bit at a friends houseboat in Kentucky.  We drove then walked, boated and floated about for a weekend.…

Selfies

Mud is Healthy

I get a kick out of people who are afraid to let their kids get dirty.  Now, I’m not saying you should let them lick the grocery cart handle, but a little honest mud (you know, dirt and water), never hurt anybody.  Yes, one in a million catch some weird, awful, unheard of mud disease…
