I need a family to love me!


He is an adorable dog. Lab mix, approximately a year old I'm guessing. So sweet and fun, loves the water and is WONDERFUL with little kids. Jake and friends found him at the river and brought him home. He'll make an awesome dog for a family, but we already have 4 dogs. If I were smart I'd keep him and get rid of one of our others, but you know the rest of that story. If you live in our area and would like to have him, please call me or email me at

{Yes, I'm so desperate that I'm shamelessly using my blog to give away dogs.}

Black Belt

He's only 15, and already has his black belt in Tae Kwon-Do. I think that is pretty awesome.
Actually, I think he's a pretty awesome kid!

T & K

These are my CUTE little neighbor boys.
We had lots of fun, throwing rocks into the 'big river', looking for frogs.
Just good old fashioned little boy stuff.
I had a great time with them!

Riley's first lollipop

Riley got her first lollipop from a restaurant where we ate when we were there on vacation. She wasn't too sure what to think at first. Had to have a little taste test first. But once she figured it all out, she liked it!

More Shelby

Here are a few more of Shelby's senior pics. Thankfully the weather cooperated this morning so we could go running around the countryside.

I finally got a chance to use my "new" ugly blue chair. Yay!
She looks pretty cute in it, doesn't she?

We had lots of fun exploring this old barn. It is really a treasure.

Thanks Shelby!

Stine's Mule Barn

Our first mule colts, ever. Aren't they the cutest little things? Mom described them perfectly when she said they are all ears and legs. These are both little girls, but we haven't decided on names yet. Any suggestions?


I couldn't call it a night until I got a few pics up of our little cutie-bug. More to come........

Sorry, no pictures yet.

I can't upload pics from here, so none to share yet, but I've taken a LOT already. We just got in to Nashville a little while ago, so while Mike regroups and rests a bit, I went in search of a computer. Had to have a facebook/internet fix!

Horse Progress Days in Indiana was not what I expected, but it was really interesting. I was expecting a heritage days kind of thing, but it was more like a farm expo for the Amish. I've never seen so many Amish people in one place. It was a sea of straw hats and suspenders. The equipment there was very high-tech horse drawn farm equipment. Like big round New Holland hay balers with hydraulics and everything. They use gasoline powered generators for a lot of the equipment, and propane gas powered refrigeration and cooking in their homes. I thought that was very interesting. There were over 10,000 people expected to attend the event during the two days, and it was packed on Friday. However, it was rainy on Saturday, so the crowd was pretty thin.

There were horses everywhere! Probably between 100-200. Some were in harness and several people were horseback. They ran horse drawn shuttles from the parking lot, had car-parkers on horseback, and even had a horse drawn concession wagon. And acres of buggy parking. The highlight, though, was the homemade ice cream. They had 5-gallon freezers hooked up to a generator running constantly. It was good! I sampled it a couple of times.

It rained all day and all night yesterday, so we didn't get to see any fireworks celebrations. I was hoping to get some pretty fireworks photos, but no such luck. Next year I guess. We just chilled out in the motel and watched James Bond last night. Pretty exciting, huh? At least we didn't have to watch a cowboy movie. haha.

Well, I'm off to wake up the old man and get him moving so we can experience Nashville! More later.
