rain drops

Here in the big State of Texas we need some rain.


It's hot. It's dry... it's hot. Did I say that it's hot already?

You can read some facts here.

It mentions things like: With a limited water supply, ranchers are having to reduce the size of their herds. Some ranchers have had to resort to a complete liquidation. Ranchers have relocated cattle as far away as Wyoming!

And then things like: 94 percent of pasture and range land is rated as poor or very poor and nearly all of the hay supply is being brought in from other states.

Over the week-end I saw hay haulin' trucks from Minnesota. I looked to see if Mr. Flannery or Kris were driving a couple of them, but unless they were in disguise it wasn't either one of them.

Then there is this: Only 8 percent of the corn crop was in good condition.
So... being Texans, we baled up our failed corn crops - threw in some molasses and made hay.

Water worries - raging wildfires - air conditioners going missing (not because of the copper - but because people are HOT!)... the list goes on.

This has been parked and ready at the airport by my house (think they know about the lip bomb?) off and on all summer...
This morning it rained!!!

First time my windshield has seen water in months.... my own personal car wash.
Okay - it only rained enough to mess up my windshield - but it rained!!! I was so excited I stopped on the side of the road and played in it for a few minutes! AND!!!  GUESS WHAT!!!  We might get a cold front this week-end... it's going to drop down to 95 degrees!!!

I'm looking for my long johns now...

comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide where it's been WELL over 100 degrees for 62 days and counting... what's the weather like in your 'hood? Wanna come sit in the kid-pool with me? I have little floaty ducks and some noodles...

lip bomb.

Turns out that you shouldn't put vanilla extract in the microwave when making lip balm.

It contains a little bit of alcohol that doesn't mix well with whatever waves come out of the microwave... then it gets all explosive and stuff. I have had a microwave to prove it...

comin' to you LIVE from a smokin' single-wide where I've decided that red.neck LIP GREASE can heat up any situation... you should try some. It will be exploding in to a cow pasture near you soon.

pedal to the metal...

Should I strip it? (and how do you strip metal?)

Paint it? (And... what color? Red? Turquoise? Cobalt Blue?)

Leave it? (after I do some body work/dent repair on it... or cover it with duct tape!!!)

comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide where I'm puttin' the pedal to the metal... Warrenton/Zapp Hall is HOW many days away?  yikes!!! Have a Happy Week-end!!!

Here is something to ponder:
When a sheep gets caught in the rain... do they shrink?

What is a sheep's favorite painting? The Mona Fleesa.

Why was the sheep arrested on the freeway? For doing an illegal ewe-turn.

Where do sheep get their hair cut? At a baa-baa shop.

What would you get if you crossed a goat and a sheep? An animal that eats tin cans and gives back steel wool.

All Image Sources listed here
(It's all on one of my Pinterest boards(which I like to call: "photoCRACK" because it is THAT addictive...))
What do you get if you cross a sheep with a porcupine? An animal that knits its own sweaters.

If my living room/office... anyroom looked as good as some of the ones above, I would have to keep the rug. Do you have a sheepskin rug in your house anywhere?

comin' to ewe LIVE from a single-wide where you know what one sheep said to another? After ewe...hee-hee

all of that just to ask you about a sheepskin rug... someday ya'll are going to vote me off the island aren't ewe.

I'm a lil' sheepish about posting so many baaaaaaaaaaad jokes... I won't do it again - and I promise ewe I'm not pulling the wool over your eyes.

Or maybe next time if I do I'll hypnotize you.
"Ewe are getting very VERY sheepy...."

Back to School...

Well... it's Junior year.

Complete with Driver's License.

Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide where I'm thinking that watching the man-child DRIVE himself to school could be as traumatic as the first day of Pre-K. Did you get your kiddos off to school this morning? Do you feel like you're suffering from empty-nest syndrome before they even LEAVE the nest?  I do... I think I'll duct tape one of those tracker band things on his ankle... hee-hee

P.S. Remember to drive slowly through the school zone... you never know who's trying to park or entering through the exit...

Calling Card...

You know how Victoria magazine always has the "calling cards" page?

They are always so pretty.... pretty graphics... pretty details...

Think I could ever make it?

My calling card is ACTUALLY someone else's business card... with duct tape. And electrical tape. And various other things...

I don't see why I shouldn't make it on the "calling cards" page that I so admire. Seriously, you would NEVER doubt who called on you, right?

Each of my pocketbooks comes with my  business card, a card of "authentic-ness" (with a born-on date stamped on the back) and a penny ('cause you aren't supposed to give a pocketbook or wallet empty of money!)!  That includes: "Mrs. Francis...

Thank You Jan for giving "Mrs. Francis" her name! I think "Mrs. Francis is Tickled Pink" to have such a FINE name!!!

Thank You EVERYONE for playing along!!!  I've got more going on in the sweat shop "la.bor.a.tor.y" out back behind the single-wide, sew I ain't through yet!!!

comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide where I'll be callin' on you Victoria magazine... Duct tape and ALL!!! hee-hee
