Shed a little tear for the puppy

Coming into town this morning I saw something that made me a little sad. I saw a dog on the highway that had been killed by a car probably this morning, but what caught my eye was the rest of the family sitting off to the side on a little rise about 15 ft from the highway. It looked like the Momma dog and the rest of the litter, all sitting exactly the same and looking at the dead pup. Made me get a little catch in my throat just seeing them like that, like they knew. I have seen this "pack" of dogs for several weeks, and think they belong to a home back in the trees. This is the 2nd on to get hit in this area. They are just mixed breed mongrels. In this part of the country people let their dogs run loose, or they will confine them in small pens. Don't know which is worse. Well this was a site that I won't forget, wonder how long they will sit there??

God must love stupid people, he made so many of them

Does anyone else hate the Sonic commercials besides me?? How ignorant do they think we are out here. I could barely tolerate the woman and man, and now there are 2 men and it is so stupid, I hit the mute every time I can reach the remote. While I am at it the other comercials I truely hate is Carl Juniors, with their piggy eating styles. THATS supposed to intice me to come eat there. I think not. That was one reason we refused to eat there. OK there is my complaint for the day. Maybe I can find their web sites and tell them what I think, hmmm think they will care? Doubt it.

Jewlery for Flossy

Flossy has a bright new red halter!! A little different putting a halter on a long eared donkey than on a horse. She is getting to be so sweet. Loves to have her cheeks rubbed and her butt. She is about 4 months old now. Got to start teaching her to lead.

Well we did our first "senior" bus trip Sat. Can't believe we did. Went to Branson and saw Shoji Tabochi's christmas show. He does a wonderful show. Have to tell about the bus ride though. It was quit plush and would have been fun, except we got this old gal behind us who NEVER shutup the whole trip!! She had a loud enough voice that at least 2 seats all around her had to hear the same stuff. I now know all her family history, where all she lived, and medical history. Oh, and learned how to make cream puffs!! Now it wasn't all a waste. Not sure we would do this again for awhile. We like our own transportation and to be able to go where we want to. But it was an experience for sure. Posted by Picasa

What makes us who we are?

Have you ever thought about what it is that makes us who we are? I mean really what is IT? You see people born into the same family that turn out so different. Why?
Is it Nature or Nuture? Is it the genes, DNA, that we inherit or the influence of how you are raised, combined with exposure to outside factors that mold us? I guess I tend to think it is a mix of both, but then I like to throw in the free choice that we have going for us. And what about predestination, I still believe that we chose the paths that we follow. I think that explains why some of us have such hard lives and some have easy times. There is Karma thrown in there. So this is a long explaination for why I am going to post this thing that I wrote over a year ago and had posted on my old blog site. I liked it then and still like it. I would love to see other think of what it is that makes them who they are and write something similar. Thanks for listening....

Fairy Invasion

Monday we hiked up into our woods to post some no hunting signs and I saw for myself evidence of fairy invasion in our woods. Just look at these pictures closely and you can see their little private swimming pools Posted by Picasa

If they could talk

I brought 2 old tins of my mothers buttons in with me today to the store. I have had the tins for at least 40 years. They are green tobacco cans. SAIL aromatic pipe tobacco a product of Holland. They have screw on lids. These were tins that my mother saved buttons in. Back in her day and my earlier day, if you threw a garmet away or made rags out of it you cut the buttons off and saved them for future use. I found some really interesting buttons. I dumped them out on the counter and as I pushed them around and looked at the interesting shapes and colors I just thought, "these buttons really hold so much history" Can you imagine the little tiny pink ones were on some dainty blouse and the huge black ones must have come off of a coat. I could tell my contributions to the tins, as they were those extra buttons that come attached to a blouse or pair of pants. Did anyone ever actually use any of them. I don't think so, I think that if I lost a button, I dug around in my sewing machine box and found one that would work. Usually it was single buttons like on a pair of pants so there was no matching. And those little swatches of yarn, never used them either.
Well if these old buttons could talk, wouldn't they have a story to tell.
You Are a Dreaming Soul

Your vivid emotions and imagination takes you away from this world
So much so that you tend to live in your head most of the time
You have great dreams and ambitions that could be the envy of all...
But for you, following through with your dreams is a bit difficult

You are charming, endearing, and people tend to love you.
Forgiving and tolerant, you see the world through rose colored glasses.
Underneath it all, you have a ton of passion that you hide from others.
Always hopeful, you tend to expect positive outcomes in your life.

Souls you are most compatible with: Newborn Soul, Prophet Soul, and Traveler Soul

Wanted to share the beautiful fall colors here in the midwest. Went to Branson over Sat. nite. Was perfect weather. Saw a great show at Pierce Arrow Theater. The second pic is taken from my front yard, looking up to the bluff. The wagon is our little donkey wagon, need to load some hay in it and decorate it, maybe next year I will do that. Posted by Picasa
