Water Level Marker

I am married to a comedian.....LOL....tonight, Marty and Benny went to the ballgame in Moran....Benny's old school..and so it became my job to lock up the chickens tonight....got my flashlight, and went out to lock them up....I noticed that one group had knocked over the water jug, so I took it out, pulled off the top, and started the water in it......and I had to bust out laughing...Benny had put a red and white bobbin in the jug, I guess to see where the water level is, and I got the giggles.....so I filled it up, and of course, dumped it over....had to start over, but got it filled, the feeder filled and they are ready to be let out in the morning....My whole life is a laugh with this man....he is my joy.......

Love is Laughter

Benny Is just sooooooo funny....Laughter every day,,,,,the funny songs he sings to me.....today was hilarious.....I had on a new T shirt...and the thin plastic ties that hold it on the coat hanger were just bugging me....so I stuck my hand inside my shirt and started just ripping them off and throwing them in the trash....He busted out laughing and told me I reminded him of his Granny...LOL..He said, "She would put her hand in her bosom and move it around and explain that she knew when she had left home that morning, she had two of them....and would do it several times...and then yell out....YES....here is one of them...and pull out a tiny white hanky,,,,and he would laugh and laugh....and then he told me how Granny would give people Smart Pills...he said they were dried up goat berries...he said some guy tried to eat two of them and explained they just tasted like crap...and she said...SEE..they are working...You are getting smarter....and more laugher....and then he tells me he used to put a dried goat berry or rabbit berry up his nose, and he and his cousins would blow them at each other...and he looks at me with his precious smile, and says, "Well, we did not have TV ya know......and then this house rings with laugher from both of us....yes, I know how blessed I am....from heart rocks to wild flowers, I am blessed.....

Bad Boy...Bad Boy...Whatcha gonna do.....

Today has been one of those ugly days.....It started early for me, about eight AM, and I got Buddy out of his dog kennel and started down the steps to chain him.....Hmmmmm.....what are those ice cream cone wrappers doing on the ground like that????......and then more problems...His dog house had been thrown into my huge water container that holds rain water....pots of flowers all dumped out....chairs overturned and thrown where they do not belong...the table moved across the yard and turned on its' side..the dog kennel outside had been filled with hay, so my coffee water is ruined....
..looked in the freezer to discover all of my ice cream cones but two were gone....I had bought two boxes..ten in each box....venison...gone...hamburger meat...gone...Benny's hot ketchup...gone....BBQ....gone. summer sausage and cheese...gone...and what else is gone, I have yet to discover....We went to get into my truck for church to only discover ice cream cones and ketchup smeared all over the windows , also all over Benny's truck.....we went on to church and came back in, and I called the Police to come and take a vandalism report.....the officer kept all the papers off the ice cream cones for fingerprints, and took pictures....I never touched the cones, just dropped them into the freezer, so hopefully we will get results off them....cannot figure out exactly who did this but I have one in mind....sadly, we do so much, for so many, and there are always a few bad apples in the bunch....but karma will come into play some day....somewhere.....some time....Benny had to wash the trucks as the acid will eat the paint.....cannot wait for a police report.....

Peas in the Pudding

Benny pulled a good one tonight....we had eaten dinner and he said he had to go lock up the chickens, and he would get some dessert later....I had some of the leftover bread pudding left, very small amount.....he hollered at me.....Why did you put peas in the pudding ? Told him I did not such thing....Well, he sAys, just come and look.....the pyrex dish was sitting on a decorated pot holder that has peas on it....I really got to laughing over this one......He was still laughing as he headed out the door to the chicken coop......

Remembering Jane....

I woke up in the middle of the night with our cousin, Jane on my mind....she has been gone for awhile , but I miss her...I felt closer to her than anyone in Benny's family...we both loved animals, she raised her horses and I raised my goats...we both loved coffee, and she always put a fresh pot on when we went to the old homeplace a Stephens County..I always loved her Christmas Cards, she drew them by hand, and they were always of horses....and one year she sent one in the mail to us and addressed it to "Dipsh** Callaway 's and I laughed till I cried..she thought it was hillarious as well...when she had a new foal, she called me and told me it was mine and she named it Derrier...LOL..when you visited her, it was not unusual to see a crow flying around in the kitchen and playing cards with you or talking, or a skunk pushing open a kitchen cabinet...and Jane would laugh...I miss her....but the memories are so vivid....She was a cancer survivor...she smoked a pipe and had to have part of her jaw and all the palate removed...she was a fighter...I would check on her and she would tell me to just wait till she put her prothesis in so I could understand her...then she told me she just could not eat peas anymore, she would put them in her mouth and they would fall out her nose....and we would both laugh till we cried...so many tears amoung the laugher...Love you, Jane

Little White Baby

I have played with a long haired little white shaggy dog all day...my story and I am sticking to it...LOL
Could not get the dogs to stop barking, here, and down at the old house...even the duck kept quacking..so I decided to go down in the pickup and see what I could see, and as I am backing out, there is a cute little long haired, white shaggy dog in the road.....I pulled back in and he came running to the truck...friendly little type...has a blue fabric collar on, I think......cannot really tell much in the dark....he went up on the porch and barked at the cat in the house, then came back down the steps, and I am thinking, what can I do to keep him from being run over tonight....so.........he is now in the big dog box...had no other choice but hopefully he will not dig out of it during the night, and tomorrow, I can find his Mom and Dad humans...so if you are missing a cute little white critter, give me a call......
Took white baby out for a walk, and he broke away...leash I have is old...so he took off and I was unable to go after him.....worried about him....saw him go with April as she pushed her baby in the stroller down the road....about thirty minutes later, my dogs were having a fit...white baby was back....he ran into my arms when he saw me on the porch....gotta find this baby's Momma.....LOL

Well, I have called everyone I know....seems like little white baby has been seen all over town....he had even been at the Feed Store a couple days....so I fear someone has cast him away....and he is such a cutie....I still have him in the dog box....we go for walks quite often, and he has had supper....sporting a new collar and leash now to replace the broken one.....will Just have to wait it out....I do not need another dog...and he does NOT like cats...LOL....and he has the most unusual color eyes....they are almost golden yellow...they even talked about his eyes at the feed store...he is really smart..even knows how to climb up into my truck and sit on the passenger seat....he heels perfectly...and freely gives kisses away.....

Flogging Rooster

I cannot keep a straight face..Benny came storming in the bedroom...asked me...."DO I LOOK LIKE A CHICKEN ?" LOL..seems the rooster got him out in the barnyard.....I just busted out laughing....told him he probably walked like a hen scratching out there and the rooster was confused....not to let the incident ruffle his feathers....what is so funny, is that the rooster NEVER bothers me.....just him........
