Cows Need Lovin’ Too

Cows Need Lovin’ Too

Note: Since I was not here in person, I have no idea if this cattle herd is all boys or all girls. I’m just going to assume they are girls, so am referring to them as “cows” in this post If they are bulls or steers, I sincerely apologize to them…nobody likes to be called […]

Have Your Cake Cupcakes

Have Your Cake Cupcakes

I’ve been wanting to introduce  you to Sarah Young, creator of, “Have Your Cake Cupcakes,”….her fledgling business which features home-made cupcakes in a wide variety of flavors. I often spend time on her cupcake Facebook page, just drooling over the creative cups of culinary confection…say that five times fast! Have Your Cake Cupcakes was created in May […]

Dave the Bartender

Dave the Bartender

Excuse the random people in this photo of hard -working Dave! We made a new friend on our trip to Mexico…folks from our neck of the woods love a good bartender and Dave makes the cut. Our resort has several bars, but the “Lobby Bar” was our favorite…only in the evening when Dave the Bartender […]

Miss Laynee Pants Part 2

In Part 1, you met “Miss Laynee Pants” … Here are some more pictures of Laynee…Baylee took them while out with the branding crew. I love Laynee’s sweet hat! And I want her pink FatBaby boots too…. Laynee’s gramma, Linda, was one of the gals who came over early to help me cook for the […]

Miss Laynee Pants Part 1

Another young visitor we had for our branding day was little, “Miss Laynee Pants“. Sorry Laynee, but I’m most likely going to call you that for the rest of your life! I love Laynee’s name…especially the spelling…it’s kind of a bit like my Baylee…awesome “y” and double “e“…I like the way your parents think, Laynee!!! […]

Ranch Women Heroines

Ranch Women Heroines

We branded last Sunday…and I’d come down with one of my “whopper” migraines on Saturday night…fabulous. It ended up lasting for 3 days…and right through one of the biggest and most important jobs on the ranch. I don’t volunteer to ride, rope, wrangle, shoot or brand so my contribution to this project is cooking and […]

Gunner Part 2

Gunner Part 2

You’ve met our lively visitor, Gunner, in part 1…the story has been told…now enjoy some more images of this endearing, little cowboy. Hopefully, you’ve been entertained by Gunner as much as we were…on this cloudy day, I’m wondering if Gunner is cozy at home, watching one of his favorite John Wayne movies!  

Cowboy Respect

Cowboy Respect

Our daughter, Baylee, took these photos the day we branded. After a long day riding and working cattle…with hunger pangs being their last motivational force…our cowboy family and friends still have enough respect for my home to take their boots off before coming inside to eat. These weren’t nearly all of the boots laying around […]

Gunner Part 1

Gunner Part 1

We had a VIP guest at our branding the other day. Gunner is a little cowboy in a BIG hat…and the rugged youngster of friends, Bob and Steph. I knew Bob when he was about Gunner’s age and let me tell you…Gunner surely is his father’s son. It’s really fun to see the resemblance…flashbacks ignite […]
