Silly Sunday

If you combined a sheepdog with a charolais (a white cow, pronounced shar-lay):



You'd get cattle that can round up themselves!

Friday Funnies

Buddy thought we needed at least one Christmas decoration, and I embellished.

Thankful Thursday

I don't normally join in Thankful Thursday. Not because I don't have anything to be thankful for, but because there is so much to be thankful for. But today I am especially thankful for a Texas Highway Patrolman who stopped to help me.

December Blooms

What a surprising fall this has been. Flooding rains followed by a few light freezes, and then days of warm weather. The plants don't know what to do. Spring bulbs are beginning to push green leaves out of the ground, and callery pears all over town are blooming. At the same time, foliage is turning brown and leaves fall from trees.

Sometimes I Wish It Was Still 1965.

In 1965, we had a black and white tv and we had to get out of the chair and walk over to the tv to change the channel. We only had three channels and none of them came on until about 6:00 a.m. and went off at midnight. We all knew it was midnight when the last program ended and a short clip of an jet flying through clouds and blue skies was accompanied by a narration of the poem "High Flight" followed by the picture of a test pattern and a long, shrill beep, and then static until the next morning.

Favorite Mug

Nancy at Wyoming Breezes posted about her favorite mug today and asked two questions of her readers:

Do you have a favorite mug or cup for drinking your morning tea or coffee?
How do you hold your cup when drinking your morning brew?

Yes! I do have a favorite mug!
