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.

Broken Silence & Progress

June of 2018 was my last post.  Two Thousand Eighteen!  Over a year and a half ago.  My how time does fly.  I’m unsure of where to go from here.  I’m tempted to reflect on those 18 months of silence.  And I’m tempted to shut them away, tucked back for another day and time.  There…

Wicked Walk 28/May/18

I promised y’all a walk soon and here it is! I suppose 97% of Americans who aren’t at work on Memorial Day spend it at the lake.  I am not part of the 97%.  First of all, I can’t swim.  I sink like a rock.  Secondly, I’m REALLY white.  Like, blindingly and I don’t want…

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.…

Wicked Walk 8-September-17

Highly ambitious, I set out with a goal of walking 5 miles this bright, blue September morning.  A goal I reached in about an hours time.  I could go faster, but then I’d miss all the lovies along the way! Here is what I saw. I guess all my lamenting over lack of mushrooms a…

Wicked Walk ~ Labor Day 2017

Good afternoon, dear reader!  I’ve been away for quite some time, trying to get back into the swing of things.  While I was gone, WordPress changed formats so I’m thoroughly confused.  Therefore, if this post looks bad, isn’t centered or whatever……I’m sorry.  I don’t do change well and I’ve had a lot of them thrown…

Wasp~A short and horrible ode

Once upon a time there was a girl.  She had a wooden bench on her porch and a dirty front door.  She decided to clean the front door.  The wasp housed under the wooden bench decided to attack.  The husband spat tobacco on the sting.  The friend drowned it in essential oils.  The piano teacher…

Wicked Walk 18~March~2017

Hello everyone!  I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 months since I’ve been able to blog.  Lots has happened, including but not limited to the following. A) I painted my front door green. B)  It’s a bad, bright green therefore I am going to have to repaint it. C) The cows are settled in their new…

Wicked Walk 1/21/2017

It has been ages since I’ve taken a really long walk.  A walk which I didn’t have to rush thru like a mad person.  My main purpose of walking today was to get some pictures of these awesome mushrooms I found the previous day.  They peeked their little heads above the tall grass.  Red, slender tubes,…

Wicked Walk 11/25/2016

I know, I know….this walk is from November.  But I’ve been a little busy with the holidays, building a house, working and home schooling and trying to keep everyone in clean underwear.  And you know, life. I can not tell you how ready I am in to be back in a house of my own.  To sip coffee…
