  1. The Single Cousin

    by , 03-01-2009 at 11:22 PM
    I finally met J.'s single cousin The Firefighter (I'll call him FF) on Saturday night. My friend B. (J.'s wife) first mentioned introducing me to FF back in the beginning of January.

    Well, FF was tall and very sweet. He's a bit shy and I think he may be younger than I am. We chatted a bit on Saturday night and agreed to get together for dinner soon.

    My only concern is that he didn't go to college and it shows in the way that he speaks. He's a bit rough around the ...

  2. A week on the ranch (February 23 - March 1)

    And in the blink of an eye, another month is gone, and no getting it back.

    My week started on a hectic but happy note: my chicks arrived from Murray McMurray. I just moved them into larger quarters tonight, so as I'm typing this, they are snuggled together on their blanket, warm and dry and safe under their heat lamp, while the wolf of winter howls around the doors, trying to find a way in. Who knows what tomorrow will bring, or if any of them will eventually fall prey to a bobcat ...

  3. 03/01/2009 - P.H.A.T. Chick Journal

    I'm having a lazy day today.

    Breakfast was 1/2 of a kiwifruit, 2 cups of coffee, and later, a large bowl of oatmeal.

    Lunch was a small plate of baked brussels sprounts.

    Dinner was a plate of stir-fried mushrooms on white rice.

  5. gardening and taxes

    Well my husband eyeballed the taxes and over 30k went to the Federal and probably another 20k went to the state. Then all the property taxes on all the land. I hope I don't also loose the college write off. I already got bitten on that one a last year, my 22 year old worked hard and graduated early, but because she graduated in less than 5 months they would not let us write off any of the college expense.She also married so lost another dependent also. The 25 year old is over age so we can't write ...
