From the Funny Farm

September 2, 2014


Well, after posting the Wyoming Fall Horse Sale the other day I have been busy fielding horse sale phone calls, texts, e-mails and Facebook messages. I have had a chance to meet some really great people! And then, I have “met" some people that I hope to never have to deal with ever again for forever and ever, amen!

So it is time to have some fun and let loose with some laughter!

Good thing I live on the funny farm!


Yesterday I was fixing my face and applying makeup. I could not find my blush. I looked everywhere, but to no avail. I figured I would find it later.

Then this morning I was again applying my war paint, when the elusive blush still did not show up I turned to my Little Cowgirl in desperation, “Have you seen my blush by any chance in the world?”

A guilty look creeped across her face and she said, “MayyyyBeeee.”

She scampered out and returned a minute later with it in hand. “What were you doing with it?” I asked.

"I was using it on my Peacock.”

Seriously. On her live peacock. She was using my new Avon blush to play beauty parlor with her pea hen!

Welcome to the funny farm!

I love this. I just had to share it with all of you! Whoever took the photo and made the meme, my hat’s of to you.


So the Native Boy was in the back seat of the car the other day when he shouts up to me very excited, “Hey look mom, the corner of the page in my Bible is bent back, God must want me to read this page!”

I loved the enthusiasm and was excited to find out what special lesson God had in store for us, “Well read it to me honey,” I responded.

So the Native Boy cleared his throat and began, “The son of Noah, the son of Lamech, the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalalel, the son of Kenan, the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam….”

And on it went. The Native boy read it all enthusiastically and heart felt and at the end he said, “Well I’m not sure what it means, but I know God wanted me to read it.”

Yes, it is impossible to doubt His presence when I am surrounded by so many miracles!

My kids and The Girls were on you tube the other day, I got my computer back and this is what was playing. I was torn between slapping myself on the forehead and rolling on the floor laughing. Really? Really!?

Cowgirl 4129

A couple weeks ago, my Little Cowgirl’s Sidekick came over to ride horses with us. Sidekick loves horses, but had not had much opportunity to ride on her own. So we saddled old Jet and took them up to the arena. Little Cowgirl rode Biggie Blue (her three year old thoroughbred horse) and I rode Geronimo.

Sidekick, not having spent much time in the saddle was uncomfortable with a trot. She said it hurt her tailgate. So Little Cowgirl encouraged her to try a lope, assuring her it was much more comfortable. After some debate it was settled and Sidekick was ready to bump it up a notch, speed wise.

Geronimo and I took the lead letting the girls fall into line behind us. After we hit stride I called back over my shoulder, “How does that feel, Sidekick?”

Over the thunder of hooves I hear in a tremulous voice, “It … Feels… Terrifying!!!!

at least the pony is having fun
