Trick or Treat!!

Welcome to my House of Horrors!!  Enter if you dare, but be warned these photos are not for the  faint-hearted!!

The bottomless sink of dirty dishes, might be full of moldy items if left too long.

 The rack a/k/a  dining room chairs where I think every coat I own is draped over  and it's only October and really only 1 cold morning this season.

 The exploding room of things to hide store  throw from the rest of the house.

The box of projects that I want to do and have been going to do for maybe 3 years.

 So why am I wasting time blogging instead of taking care of all the above things?  Because I want to wish you a HAPPY HALLOWEEN and I really don't want to do housework today or yesterday or the day before that or..... anyway have a fun day and hope it is full of treats and not tricks!!

Baseball Is In the Air

Baseball fever has hit Texas in a big way.  Even the barbed wire looks like baseballs!  Hopefully the rest of the games will go better than last night's loss.

Tree Lessons

Life lessons can be found in many ways.  Here are a few I learned from a tree:
  • Don't litter, it makes the ones who have to pick up after you unhappy.
  • Don't drop things on the sidewalk or people.  You might hurt someone and be sued.
  • Don't take it personally if some think you are ugly and too much trouble.  There are others who enjoy your company and think you're pretty awesome.
  • Don't become a security threat.  Dire consequences could occur.

All of the above were reasons to cut this tree down at the courthouse.  I'm going to try to remember not to do any of the above.

Smokey Bear Bike Ride

 Second Annual Joy VFD Smokey Bear Bike Ride was a success.  It was a beautiful day and we had more entered than last year.    Door prizes, trophies for different categories of bikes, and we provided the gas home from the ride!

Not for the bikes, but the bikers!!

Weather Alert

Well it's not a cold day in hell, but the Texas Rangers are GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!  I couldn't breathe through the last 2 innings until that final out.  I'll be glued to the TV when the series start.  Arlington is probably still rocking this morning!

Phone in a Hay Field

Last Friday, Behm lost his phone in the hay field.  When I got home we went to try to find it.  In the dark.  We parked near where he thought he might have lost it and I began calling his number to see if we could hear it.  I never realized there was so much noise at night in the country.  During the 3rd attempt at calling, I heard it ringing.  I called again & kept walking until I got closer & voila  there it was!  That's twice I have found things he's lost in fields.. his wallet earlier in the year and now his phone.  I think I need to go into the finders business.

Crazy Thought #455

This sign always makes me wonder:
1) Are there slow running children ahead?
2) Are the children slow?
3) Why do I think such crazy thoughts?

Please don't answer that last question, I might really get depressed!
