This 'n That

I put up a new header picture for June. This one shows some of my niece's Black Angus trying to find some shade on a hot day in August. However, the old bull doesn't seem to realize it's the sun shining and not the moon. Some good steaks on the hoof there.

Speaking of the weather, Oklahoma has sure had its tornadoes and rain the last couple of weeks along with Parts of Arkansas and Missouri. I don't know what I'd do if I woke up to see my house scattered over the territory for a couple of miles. I think I'd say "Enough of this, I'm heading somewhere else," as that one lady said on the TV as she looked over the mess.

I began pinning some items on the boards at and I'm not sure if I'm going to like it or not. Looking at my board, all I see is bunch of pictures and stuff that came up when the site said "pick at least five boards." My photos were buried among all the rest. Maybe I'll learn how the page works as I go along and I can clean it up to resemble something that relates to my books and writing, etc.........maybe.

"Dingbat" has been called to serve the Lord. I hope she doesn't break his eardrums when she starts singing the halleluja songs. We were sorry to learn of her passing. She was "an actress not a celebrity" she said and was never in the public eye after the TV show All in the Family. Jean Stapleton was 90 years old and died of natural causes the paper said.

"Wrangle." v.i. quarrel, bicker, squabble, dispute, altercate, argue, brawl. From Roget's Thesaurus. It leaves out the one about rounding up cattle, but we can't all be perfect. Maybe that's a v.t. or a plain ole adj. like intractable, which some of them dern animals are.


  1. My family is from Northwest Arkansas, close to the Oklahoma border and I've been a bit worried about them up there.

  2. You have had plenty of reason to be worried, Charles. It looks like a bad summer in Tornado Alley.
