The 'Do

To do this properly (for historical purposes and such -- because I AM going down in history for something) I'm going to post before and after pics.

With some curls.

And without.

3/4 inches, baby!

I really hate taking pictures of myself.

Then again, maybe it's just not very flattering to be in front of a camera.

Thanks, monkey.

Built In Home Defense

Before I begin, let me welcome back all those Google Reader users. My dusty little blog has missed you and glad for you to tune back in. I don't like Google Reader because I know if I don't write, people don't visit or comment. I understand why you use it and why you like it. You have a lot more blogs to check than I do and we all have little time on our hands. But sometimes, you need to visit a blog and leave a comment to let the author know you are checking in on them. I understand that if I wrote more you would visit more but I can't deal with that pressure.

Now then, I have contemplated getting a handgun for sometime now. While I have never actually shot a handgun, I have always wanted to shoot one and own one. Well my little wifey is scared of guns (mostly) and thinks one of our kids will shoot themselves. Never mind the fact that we don't have any kids. (Thus you can see the level of her fear). Well now there is someone in our little family who has shot a handgun . . .

My little sweet face signed up for a Leisure Learning course on her own and it was a two day basic class. They went over the handguns the first night and then went to the shooting range the next night. She liked the class a lot and was even open to us purchasing a handgun. But she still said I have to keep the gun and the bullets locked in two totally different places. I am still trying to explain that there is not much of a point owning a handgun if I have to crack one safe to get the gun and then crack another safe to get the bullets. But we are making progress.

I realized there is a problem. If in the event we had a handgun and there was a situation where we needed one (intruder, squirrel, random bobcat killing our friends sheep (that one is for Fluffy but I don't think she reads this blog so I should probably start backspacing)) I would probably catch myself handing the gun to my wife because at least she has actually shot a handgun before and I haven't. Probably a little embarrassing for my manhood but at least now I have a Built In Home Defense!

What's in a Name?

We are trying to find names for our cows and newborn calves. I have it narrowed down to a couple. Perhaps you could offer your suggestion or votes to help me pick!!!

Audra or Mindy with Joshua or Olivia

Olivia or Joshua

Mindy or Audra :)

And this is just a picture of my Dad's ranch hand on his new tractor.

Now, for the record, I think every woman named or seen in this post is a stunningly beautiful, slender, deadly attractive, smart, sophisticated woman. There is no need to draw your own conclusions from any references you may incorrectly imagine. Any such references are your own and are not necessarily the references or conclusions of this author.

What is your vote for the animals? (between the names given of course!)

Somewhat Wordless Wednesday

Just a picture of me out doing the Lord's work . . .

At the time this picture was taken, I was telling this young lady that there were actually 4 chapters of JOHN in the bible and she was flirting back with me and that was kind of why I was getting a big head. I just didn't realize it would show up in the picture.

* for the record . . . no way I cropped this photo. this, ladies and gentlemen was done by one of your Bishops which subsequently came into my possession. I thought Bishops were busy individuals. Apparently I was mistaken . . . although very clever nonetheless . . .

Wise Tara


You are wise telling me the story how the "friends" treated you poorly as well. That made me feel better about myself because at least now I know it wasn't only me they were treating so poorly.

Mindy and Steven are actually known as quite festive Halloween party goers because every year they dress up. Although it is the same costume every year:

"Hey they kind of look like little sheeps." "Yeah, yeah they do look like a little ram and a little ewe." "Well but wait, wait look at that part where the zipper does not come all the way up." "It kind of looks like wolf fur." "Yeah and those sheep have some awfully long fangs for sheep." "I don't know . . . they look like nice cute little sheep but I am afraid they are just wolves in sheep's clothing and when you get up closer they will bite our heads off."


- everyone who encounters them on Halloween . . . and every other day of the year

Tara, you must tell me more about this WAED that your brother, SIL and Micks partaketh of in RR. Maybe that is the key to get me to move there or at the very least become Mormon.
