Visiting Marauder

Here is the rogue. He invades our yard. He eats
our cat food. He torments our cats. He's adorable.
He stays a week or so and leaves. But he always
comes back. (The cat came back...)

Ronald Reagan`s Funny answer

So funny.


This cat is so much fun. Every day. I get lots of scratches because we play a lot. She likes to play hide and seek. She always wins! She is now four years old. She's not a sit on your lap kind of cat. She doesn't rub up against your leg when you walk and try to trip you. But she does stay in every room I'm in and sit near me. In the bedroom she sleeps on the recliner and occasionally at the foot of the bed if I've been gone all day. She's a good house cat.

All in a Day's

I've been awake for a while now
You've got me feelin' like a child now
'Cause every time I see your bubbly face
I get the tinglees in a silly place

It starts in my toes
And I crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while now
Just take your time
Wherever you go

She is more fun than ever now that she is three months old.  She laughs out loud now and is all smiles when she wakes up.  I am all in a daze over her.  Or did you not notice?

Class is Out

You know, I can't even say that I don't like Kanye, I just don't get
this behavior.  Of course, MTV must condone it because they let
it happen and put up this video immediately with an ad.  

In the course of this world, this is just one minor incident.  But haven't you noticed the lack of respect that goes on world wide?

Who Let the.......

I would love to have this guy in my front yard.
I am sure that Julie will recognize this gorilla.
I wonder what there motto is for selling cars?

Just where are those tethered? Ouch!

By the Light of the Silvery Moon

Here is my Honda with new paddle tires
We're taking a break in the shade.

See the orange moon?
Our trip to Little Sahara turned out great. We had a decent little three bedroom house to stay and I made Ree's rib eye steak recipe with onion/blue cheese sauce. I grilled hamburgers the next day. We had pancakes for breakfast one morning and the next morning we went to a cafe for their buffet filled with good selections. I had to do a little extra cleaning on the bathroom but the super cold air conditioning made up for it.
My husband and son and I rode all day and night. We were able to ride from the house to the dunes on our four-wheelers. On the way home we stopped in Enid and ate at El Chicos.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that my husband rolled his four-wheeler on Saturday night and I rolled my four-wheeler on Saturday. Boy, was that an experience! Both of us were fine, just surprised, but we were wearing our helmets. And on sand it is a soft landing. I actually just slipped off mine and it rolled over on top of me and then one more time before landing on its tires. I was in the middle of it where your leg is and there is just enough room for clearance. I remember thinking as it was on top of me that I hope it goes on over. And it did. My son came to my rescue immediately. I was trying to go up a really tall dune and decided at the last minute that I wasn't going to make it so I did the wrong thing- I turned sideways. Something you don't want to do at the top of a soft backside of a dune unless you are going fast and are turning on purpose and I suppose a lot more experienced at driving than me. I fell off and it turned over on me. It all happened quickly but it seemed longer. The four-wheeler didn't turn over immediately, it just hung there for a second and then it was on top of me for a second and then back off and on its wheels. I actually didn't mind the experience, of course mostly because I wasn't hurt but I don't want to do it again. Now anywhere else besides sand this would be much more dangerous.
All's well that ends well.

Little Sahara Dunes

We are heading to Little Sahara dunes for the Labor Day
week-end. We've got to try out our new Honda TRX 450.
It's a little hotter than our Honda Ranchers. You have to
shift it with a clutch. I haven't even tried it out yet. My son
or my husband will be driving it. I'll stick with my Rancher
and my new paddle tires. We're going to stay in a house we've
rented. I hope the house is clean and spider free! The last house
we stayed at had fiddlebacks. One house we reserved was so bad
we had to decline and stay at the fiddleback house. The house
we didn't stay at was a nightmare on Park Avenue. The banker's
daughter's house from 1904. It was the most run down house
I have ever seen. The wind was blowing in from every window
and it was 104 degrees outside with one window unit (swamp cooler).
It had an upstairs that you could not go in to but you could see the wind
blowing the curtains above the living room ceiling. It was very creepy.
It had a locked door to the stairs and a window that someone had broken
beside the stairs. The broken place was covered with a tapestry and
the breeze was blowing it too. I wondered if there was some homeless
person up there. We didn't stay around long enough to find out.
