Desperate for relief I did the unthinkable, I made a poster, hung it on my front door and waited for the cops

I was at my wits ends living next door to bad neighbors. The booze and crack parties they enjoyed most days and every night always prompted their 4  dogs to participate in uncontrollable and excessive barking . I was so desperate for relief that I did the unthinkable, I made a poster and hung it on my front door and waited for the cops.

I am much more than that

I came across interesting thoughts and conversation this morning while responding back to bloggers who have visited and liked my blog or post. The topic for discussion that grabbed my attention involved photographers and artists. http://leannecolephotography.com/ and  http://cristianmihai.net Thoughts expressed were both interesting and complex, I really enjoyed all that I read and saw. Leanne Cole has fantastic photography and Cristian Mihai is an exceptional writer. In order to comment on the post I searched my mind for thoughts to share, this is what I said… Continue reading I am much more than that

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST…if a heart worships beauty what should happen to that heart if beauty is no more?

Beauty and The Beast

as I sat at my computer window enjoying my yard and dogs a family walks by….

The other day I met a woman while walking my dogs. As I approached her I started chatting as I saw she wanted to talk. It was obvious to me she was a special needs person, her speech was slow mixed up and simple, her walking gait awkward and unbalanced.

She spoke of how school was not a good place when she was younger; but still she stood in front of her high school reminiscing.

My heart went out to her for I also felt the pain of rejection in school and know how it can destroy you, we parted ways.

The next day while working in my yard she came down our neighborhood with her boy and daughter. Her boy was handicapped and so disfigured that I was slightly shocked and taken  aback.

A Dog, A Small Town of Pig Skinners and A Pig Skinning Alarm

Last night I was overtired and not thinking straight. My husband and I were watching a show with audio for the blind. I told him it was stupid, he said no it wasn’t, I said it was retarded to have such a small amount of audio for the blind to actually know whats going on. He said it was enough, I said they should have caption sentences running below the bottom of the screen with more information, he looked at me shook his head and said I was double dumb.

Persistence of an alley cat, brains of a knat

With weather warming you will often find me and my loyal State Trooper outside in my coop. I love critters and all the outdoor work that goes with farm life 😀 just look at this sweet baby face mut of mine, and he’s just as loving and loyal as he looks.

And goofy….he’s mighty goofy and always up for fun.

Play with me and I won’t eat your crazy chickens

But I am not on a farm so I have ingeniously re-created a backyard chicken farming lifestyle in my small town suburbia main street homestead. Some people say and think you can’t have the cake and icing to, I say that’s a crazy saying, that’s what icing is for 🙄 One day I hope to be on an acreage but for now this backyard farm will do.

Her home is cold and scary with rodents in the walls

Her home is cold and scary with rodents in the walls? come on! it’s not that bad is it?

Sure there’s an unfinished wall or 2 or 8 but it takes time to build the perfect home.

A  good brisk home is good for a lot of reasons. You don’t need to dig out a root cellar for your garden crop! and if the electric goes out your food won’t go bad 😆 As for the rodents, well that’s hardly a problem, if we can’t trap em we’ll wall them in. 😀

This is a long post but, there are a lot of pictures and besides, do you know me to write anything boring? Continue reading Her home is cold and scary with rodents in the walls

13 EASY STEPS TO THE NUTHOUSE

Welcome to my morning ritual!

I endure Dog stuff, Chicken stuff, Horny dogs, Rogue Rouen Ducks and psychotic menopausal dysfunctional moments (cutting my long hair crooked and off at neck length 2 weeks ago in the bathroom at 12pm with small paper scissors) “yup I really did”!

Barb 19, maybe I’ll see you in the nut house one day? Continue reading 13 EASY STEPS TO THE NUTHOUSE

Magical Whimsical Trippy and True

 

I drew the dragon as a request from my daughter Ashley.  She was working with kids at our local complex and needed a dinosaur picture.

She was also my assistant cook at Camp  in 2001 at an all girls camp and was also a youth Team Leader. You’ll see her at her finest down below here. Her experience with child care was obviously traumatic, she refuses to produce offspring to this very day.

What should I do with an Angel like you

I can’t seem to shake you you’re sticky like glue

You’re always there when I’m feeling blue

 I thank God for Angels like you

 Your perky and funky a cute little nut

You like to appear at the door of my hut

 Bouncy & jiggly straight for me you strut

 You rock & you roll me up out of my rut

 Your magical whimsical trippy & true

Your presence does sparkle then I become new

Then for you I pray my friend yes I do

Since I know that sometimes, you’re hurting to

 So what should I do with and Angel like you

I can’t seem shake you you’re sticky like glue

 Your not like the others some may say your odd

 It’s true friend your different, Sent to me from God

 

Ashley isn’t the inspiration for my poem but she is a jiggly little nut.

Judging from her picture here, refusing to produce offspring is a good idea.
