Feelin ornery...

This is a test.

I have been very busy
and have lots of pictures 
to share with you.

Lots of stories
to be told.

But for some reason
I have been unable to post
on this blog.
Until today.

Sweet Heather
wrote to tell me 
what I need to do.
I now need to
use Picasa

Here is some of the spring loveliness going on.

Our one lone flowering tree.

with a load of sheetrock scraps
there were miles and miles
of blooming redbuds and wild cherries

just growing wild...

I was purple with envy
and wanted to just 
snatch one right out of the ground
to plant in my yard...

Someday very soon

Darn cattle!

The best news of all is


Here is where the magic begins...

Cool, huh?

In the past few days

and screwing
