January Background

I have always loved rocks. I've always found a "special" rock as a memory when I travel.

Well, it seems my youngest has picked up on my passion, and the Farm (that's really a Ranch) is one of the best places to uncover nifty stones and fossils.

Throughout the years, when we've found especially unique stones, we leave them on the stone wall out in front of the house.

Charger was looking through the rock collection this afternoon and when I went out for a walk, this is what I found.

Can you see it? I love it!!!

Because of my fear of snakes on the Farm (that's really a Ranch), the boys got boots.

The boys now look like they've been here a while...and their ankles are safe from snakes!

Mamas and Babies

Remember Dunce Cap, the cow???

Well, she just so happens to be the MAMA of the cutest calf on the ranch!

And what a good MAMA she is!

Fun in the Dirt

We bought a gocart a while back so that they kids could use it here. Well, it's never run well, especially on the rocky terrain here.

We finally took it to a mechanic this trip, and it's good as new now. 

The boys set out first thing to make a gocart track on the North 40.

Only problem is...we need rain here just about as badly as in Texas.

You can see the license tag, but can you even see Viper standing beside the gocart???

They're having some good, filthy, STINKY fun!!!


Ranch Jobs

Viper's New Job

Charger's New Job


Bonfire Blaze for the Neighbors

I promised a certain someone's husband pictures of the little ole burn we had when we first got here. Please note: we're cleaning out some nasty stuff from a moldy, musty basement...

Yep, you guys missed all the fun!

Greetings from the Farm (that's really a RANCH!)

Since my internet isn't cooperating here at the Farm that is really a Ranch, I thought I would take a chance and just post photos. If the internet continues to work, I'll try to add captions so they will even make some sense! :-)

This is Matt's calf - Sally Mae. She is now hand-fed and loves to be scratched.

This is one of many "mamas" - we named her Dunce Cap!

Bull, Mamas and Babies
The bull is the big lazy black one laying down on the job.

Crazy Horns - can you see them?
One points up and the other straight at ya!


Onto other topics...This is the basement BEFORE.
AFTER pictures will be out soon.
