Bye Bye Boo

This morning Boo was run over. We are all very sad and he will be missed terribly. Cedar will also be sad because her runnin' buddy is now gone. Boo came to live with us after some heartless moron threw him out of a car when he was a tiny kitten. He was approximately 10 years old. We will remember Boo by the most favorite things he loved to do:

1. Beat up Claude
2. Beat up Afton
3. Beat up Cedar
4. Beat up Mama Kitty
5. Beat up stray cats

We will miss you our little yard thug!

Golden Opportunity

With John about to open his shiny new barn in the next few weeks (not a boarding barn so don't even ask. It's most definitely a private barn for his own horses...and 18 more) I just couldn't pass up the chance to repost one of my favorite all time photos. Carroll and I are in the process of decorating his office and we're sorting through bagillions of photos to find that perfect 10x15 to frame for his office. I'm voting for this one. If you get a chance ask him what happens when you crosstie a half broken Arabian in a wash pit and turn on the water. Or, when you get on a 2 year old colt in the middle of a pasture without a saddle or bridle.

Good luck to Frank who has his boy surgery in the a.m. Lottie will be thinking about him. She might send him can of squishy cat food as a get well present.

The Epitome of Fun

So, at the beach Justin dug this huge hole...for like 2 hours. Then, he crawled out and left. The kids next to us practically fell over each other to play in the fox hole Justin created. We don't know why he did it. Probably don't want to know. But at least we have this entertaining photo to use as blackmail for the rest of his life.

I miss the beach, or was it just sitting around doing nothing I miss the most.

Unsolved Mysteries

These strange tracks were found all over Martha's yard. We're pretty sure a deer or a cat didn't make them. A fox dragging a chicken could have made them but all of her chickens were acounted for. What could possible make such strange marks in Martha's yard?

Oh yeah, nevermind.

Back to the Grind

I would post a beautiful beach picture but I don't have one. I cried yesterday at work. Not because it was hard. But, just because my desk looked messy. I need a holiday.

Top ten things learned at the beach:

10) Don't let ANYONE put suntan lotion on you (you will get mocked publically).

9) If you are drowning make sure Hannah is wearing her red suit...otherwise she can't save you.

8) Never let anyone who's name ends in "achael" see you fall out of a chair.

7) Don't have children...have nephews. That way 3am feedings are someone elses problem.

6) Floats are fun in the water and are not to be slept on.

5) Cranium causes church splits.

4) If you wrestle with Rachael she'll put you on the ground.

3) If you wrestle with Hannah you'll rebreak her arm.

The last two are up to ya'll because I'm too tired to care.

aaaaaand a good time was had by most.
