You know 30, 40, 50 and as I have recently discovered 60!! One of the markers in my Dad's mind was drinking coffee...black coffee! So by that means of measure I am still in puberty! I drink what I like to call my ranchers coffee. Enough sugar to choke a horse and enough milk to drain a cow.

Mud not as fun as it use to be…

Remember how playing in the mud and making mud pies? Running at your Mom with your muddy hands? She would run until she got that look.
