My Mississippi Trip – or how NOT to get water from a well

I know that everybody has their own way of remembering things. I try to remember the funny. I know that if I can't laugh at my self, life isn't much fun! On one occasion the humor came from Mississippi in the late 60's or early 70's. We had driven down in a Chevy and pulled … Continue reading My Mississippi Trip – or how NOT to get water from a well

Best years of my life?

  Thanks to the internet and in no small part Facebook, I have now connected with more people than I can remember. One I do remember was a lady I went to school with. I connected with her not through Facebook or even use of the internet! She had a son going to the same … Continue reading Best years of my life?

Cousins

As I was sitting here by the computer checking my blog "Stats" and getting really depressed. I saw on the internet the typical "Cousins" meme. Does anybody actually know what a meme is? OK, back to the topic. I was cleaning out Peter's car when we still lived in Englewood. There was a black SUV … Continue reading Cousins

AGE…

Age I have to admit that today's "word prompt" is just slightly on my nerve. I see that yes, I am getting to an age when things that worked perfectly well are now in need of a more effort. I know that I am luckier than some. Not as lucky as others. But I always … Continue reading AGE…

Brown Sugar… not just for cooking anymore

Brown Sugar not just for baking any more... it is also to make friends! As we (or at least me) come to an age when Mother's are scarcer than hens teeth. Hen's don't have teeth you say?? Pretty scarce then aren't they. I wonder how much of us is from the times that Moms tried to … Continue reading Brown Sugar… not just for cooking anymore

Old Age…Yep it is here! I thought it would take longer.

Friday nights thru the ages (MY ages)!! 20's – who has the best (cheapest!) happy hour? Dancing so good and looking so fine! No better way to spend my time!! 30's – who is hanging out at Dimples (local bar) Friends and drinking what better way to spend my time? 40's – what time is the … Continue reading Old Age…Yep it is here!

Spoke vs Ankle?

  Yet another story from my klutzy childhood. It is amazing to me now that I made it out of childhood alive!! Guess what this one doesn't even have my BROTHERS to blame it on! We lived on a street with a big hill. One summer day the girls down the street were riding their … Continue reading Spoke vs Ankle?

New Toy…

Here on the Johnny Moore Ranch Christmas came rather early! Yep, September 7, 2017 at about 1:00 PM. John Deere made an appearance... instead of red and white fur it came in John Deere GREEN!! The man who dropped it off had a really unusual truck - well I think it was. In order to … Continue reading New Toy…

Guess what I learned today?!?!?

Yep, I learned how to drive the 4 wheeler. I am really good at it!! Well, I would be if I was a "Jackrabbit"! Yep, smooth not in the vocabulary yet. But I did manage to get it turned around. See those bales in the background? I managed to get around them in a field … Continue reading Guess what I learned today?!?!?

Feeling older than dirt!

You all have seen those "Remember When..." on the internet. It makes me rather sad that a lot of what we grew up with is now irrelevant, out of date and just plain history! Which reminds me of a story. One of the posts shows a girl with her car. The license plate has been … Continue reading Feeling older than dirt!
