Brother Bill

Back when we lived on 6th Avenue brother Bill was in the navy. One time when he came home, he was sleeping upstairs in the bedroom and mom told me that I would just stand there and watch him sleep because I loved him so. Another time I went to the Poor House, that was...

Toots and Ernie

I decided to add this category to my blog because family stories are oftentimes so funny and endearing, especially when they are told by Uncle Johnny. Tonight when I was talking to him, I asked him to tell me a story. He said, "Aww well, I don't know any stories". I...

How many times Lord?

How many times must I relearn how to give things back to you? To not hold on to feelings of hurt, sadness, disappointment, emotional hardships of various sorts. It seems like life is full of teachable moments regarding this. I have told others that if they will hand...

Becoming a friend to the friendless…

As a child, it was never my goal to be the most popular or hang out with the "in" crowd. I stuck with the kids that were pretty average...middle of the road sort of kids. With our "group" there weren't rigid rules about what you had to do to fit in...we were just...

With coyotes ever present around our farm, we have seen a need to be rid of them. As long as you have animals, you'll have coyotes because animals are tasty. They have also been a viable threat to people, coming out at all hours during the day and night. One day our...

Forgiveness can be painful…

So, the title to this page probably leaves some people scratching their heads, but I promise that if you read on, you'll understand what I mean and probably agree with me. Did you ever had a time, as a kid, when you did something wrong, knew you were wrong, knew that...

We Finally Have a Floor…

When we moved to our farm, we had a house, overgrown pastures, and a cat. We began accumulating our "zoo", one animal at a time. First came Daisy Jane...the service dog. Then Maizie...our young heifer, then Jaxon the foal, another dog, another cat, another...
