Hey all! My friends' father-in-law passed yesterday. Friend is doing surprisingly well as she made peace w/ it awhile ago. Her husband left to be w/ his Mom & the rest of the family. She will go on Monday. I sent Sue, Cho, Brea & Ginger there. They are horse people. They will have a nice arena to run around in and know they will be at the rodeo for friends' daughter. Think they will probably hang out there for a week then do a fly by @ my ranch in Iowa. Whoever needs them after that - they will be there. Friend's dughter did really well in rodeo last weekend and this weekend will determine if she goes to finals or not. Daughter said she wouldn't go but her parents' said she worked too hard to get this far so she should just go out there and win it for Grandpa. Will keep you posted. Won't be attending the funeral (it's in Minnesota). Friend has a lot to do - needs someone to feed the horses, etc., heavy work load, phone calls and what not. Know you have her on the prayer list! I'll be in touch.  (Apr 9, 2011 | post #1517)

Thanks Phoenix! Been a fairly stressful winter. Won't even get into what my roomie had to endure w/ his family. Maybe later. Things are looking up. Enjoying a few days @ home w/out having to go to town. Will be stir crazy by Monday but what the hey. Sue, Cho and the gang are hanging out. It's a little warm here so I'll send them on their way in a bit. Puppy is doing great but had to haul her in early from her run today as it was too darn hot. She's napping. Talk soon!  (Apr 7, 2011 | post #1516)

Thanks Mikey fan and everyone else out there too! Friend in San Antonio went out his way - all the doors and windows open and threw a party for family and friends. His way. Father-in-law of other friend is still hanging on. Puppy doing very well. We adjusted her meds and have adjusted her time outdoors. Too windy today so no "free" outside - just on the chain to keep her out of the wind. She runs way too hard when she is outside (the world is her oyster) and then comes inside and collapses. Sleeping now and that is where I need to be! Other than that - all is well. Am tired from working around the house and property and keeping up w/ the mess. Roomie out of town working and says he'll be back tomorrow. Much to do before then. Good thoughts and prayers to all. Looking forward to the race this weekend @ Tx. Motor speedway. Wish I was able to make it but w/ gas @ $3.61 - forget about it. Will be happier on the couch w/ a large plate of grub!  (Apr 4, 2011 | post #1514)

Hey all! Sorry I have been out of touch. Much going on and have been keeping up w/ prayers for all of you as I know you have been for me. Friend in San Antonio passed 2 wks. ago from cancer - it took him quick. Am on the "team" to plan a service for him this summer. Roomie got to see him before hand - I was planning on going but the puppy got sick. I didn't know what to do - puppy? friend? My Dad always told me things happen for a reason. Another friend called and her father-in-law is on his way out and she is visiting him today - perhaps the last time. She and her family are taking all the dogs today so they will be well cared for. Her mother-in-law just had 2 knee replacements so she can't care for them. We are all so blessed for the prayers and good thoughts! I'll try to stay in better touch because your good thoughts means so much to me!  (Mar 27, 2011 | post #1509)

Good hearing from you Phoenix! Have missed you! Know we will catch up soon - think we all have had a bad case of the unruly weather! Our power keeps going in and out. Oh well. Glad you are back!  (Feb 10, 2011 | post #1495)

That works for me. In addition - she should have to carry a card that says she can never own an animal again. And - her volunteer hours should be spent away from the animals cleaning litter boxes and picking up poop! Google something like "woman in Minnapolis tries to mail puppy..." She's going to get a few charges. Still cold here but I am surviving!! You all stay warm!  (Feb 3, 2011 | post #1492)

Hey Katie! & everyone else. It's 16 degrees here and the wind is howlin'! Suppose to get down to 11 or below. Snow is being threatened in the next couple of days. Feel sorry for the folks in Dallas who are trying to get to the Super Bowl. We're fine here - have the generator ready to go in case the electric goes, have plenty of wood for the wood stove (hide-a-bed in close proximity - ready to go - plenty of blankets), plenty of propane for the little heaters and filled many water containers in case the well freezes up. Who lives like this anymore? Glad we aren't in Iowa w/ below zero temps. But, roomie kind of wishes we were there as he could make a bundle on snow removal. Forget about it! Any weigh ins on the gal in Minn. who tried to send the puppy through the mail? I think she should be fined w/ that money going to help animals and be sentenced to at least 1000 hrs. of volunteering @ animal shelters. JMO Everybody stay safe and warm w/ this weather. Don't take any chances! No bad news this year! I'll probably regret saying that. Good thoughts & prayers to all!  (Feb 1, 2011 | post #1490)

Thanks Katie! The phone is pretty simple - we are 1 of the 3 people left on this road that have land lines. Everyone else is cell so it causes problems as the phone co. doesn't check as often. Oh well. My isp was bought out and the peeps I put the order to reinstate service with were so worried they were going to lose their jobs - they "forgot" . So - I ended up going w/ another service. The plumbing problems were bound to happen sooner or later - glad we lasted this long. As for the DISH - we have had nothing but trouble w/ them ever since we signed up. Par. It's all working now so nothing to get in a twist about. Am just glad to be here! Good wishes and prayers to all!  (Jan 26, 2011 | post #1487)

Hear ya Mikey fan! It's been in the 20's (and teens) here but at least not below ZERO! Cleaned the chimney and stocked wood before we left so that is keeping us toasty. Did have to get the propane guy out to fill the tank for the baby heater, etc. All is good!  (Jan 22, 2011 | post #1485)

Hey Katie! And everyone else! Made it to TX the 15th of Jan. Decided to take 3 days to get here w/ the pup and cold weather. Brrrr.... it was cold in the midwest and doesn't look like it's going to end soon for them. Got here and the phone was out, isp out, TV out and some plumbing problems. NBD. Got the TV going the 15th, the phone going the 17th, plumbing taken care of the 18th and finally got isp today. All is good! Hope you all are well! I'll try to keep in touch on a more timely basis! Good catching up!  (Jan 21, 2011 | post #1483)

Thanks Katie! Now we are thinking about Thursday as another "blast" is coming our way. Packing won't be a problem since I got all the laundry done today. Roomie has secured all the buildings but can't get to my Mom's (snow too thick - even w/ the blade) - I'll hoof it for the final check. We'll get it all done! Thanks! Can't wait for that 65 degrees!  (Jan 10, 2011 | post #1479)

Ugly weather here in Iowa. Snowing buckets all day long and it is hard to keep warm! Roomie has been here TWICE (w/ the truck w/ blade) to clean out the drive and sweep off my car - told him to forget about the car as I'm not leaving the house! I can't even see the garage! We scooped (twice) earlier the sidewalks and I will need the big boots to get to the garage! Hope he either brings the 4-wheel drive tonight or the bladed truck. Hoping this will end and we can head to TX by Friday! You all stay SAFE and WARM!  (Jan 10, 2011 | post #1477)

Happy New Year ALL! Prayers and good wishes to all of you! Am getting ready to get out of this midwest COLD and back to TX! Probably won't be on for awhile but know that I am thinking about you all!  (Jan 4, 2011 | post #1473)

Gobble Gobble back at ya! And, Gobble Gobble to all of you! Probably won't be on for awhile as I need to get to Mom's for Turkey Day and the weather is terrible. I leave you w/ a prayer my Grandma wrote some 60 plus yrs. ago. Think it is still applicable (more than ever) today. Our Father, on this Thanksgiving Day we pause to give thee thanks for our many blessing, and they are indeed many. For our homes, our families, our loved ones, our friends, and all that we have and will ever have we are truly grateful. Above all, dear God, we are thankful for Thy promise of eternal life, for our nation and for freedom to worship Thee and to promote Thy Kingdom on earth. Amen. Happy Thanksgiving!  (Nov 22, 2010 | post #1438)
