Snapshots on the Farm

Soooo very much Mommy and PR Blogging going on around here. Let's get back to our regularly scheduled pigs...

Morgan and a wonderful tub of Hampshire piglets on their way to get their ears notched and an iron shot. (Husband took them right back to their mother afterward.)


  1. Those piglets are gonna grow up looking great. I once planned on investing on hog and horses but lack of land area prevented it. If I could afford a Western Colorado Real Estate then I can start it. I also want to bond with my family when I groom my animals.

  2. Such cute little piglets! I do want that too Ryan, but I can't because of lack of resources. I'm actually more inclined towards raising horses because I love riding.

  3. I used to raise hogs before but now I've shifted to goats because they're easier to maintain. I just recently changed their fences to a sturdy one so they can't get out.

  5. We used to raise pigs and cows too in our farm but after my husband got a job offer in the city, we decided to sell the property as well as the animals.

Happily Ever After

Last weekend, in a brief moment of remote control ownership, I tuned into basic cable and saw a very disturbing show called "Rich Bride, Poor Bride." I watched two episodes and didn't see what I would call a "poor" bride--although actually, after they blew their budgets, both brides probably did end up poor. One couple spent about $75,000. They talked her out of having live peacocks at the reception.

That makes me think about my own much simpler but very nice-for-Farmersville wedding over a decade ago. In many ways it was a disaster.

We were engaged for a year and a half; we had plenty of time to plan but fates conspired against us.

By the time we got to the week of the wedding, we had buried two people on the guest list and paid our respects to a distant uncle. One of the people we lost was my husband's grandfather who died Monday, we had visitation Wednesday, funeral Thursday, rehearsal dinner Friday, wedding Saturday. How his grandmother handled it is beyo…

Starting off summer with Ayrshire dairy females grazing in the lot by our driveway. Our family used to milk Ayrshires but we now just keep a few on hand for 4-H projects.

Rejected by Nancy Cartwright

Every two years the nationally renowned Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop is held here in Dayton. The event typically sells out in hours, but one way to gain entry is to enter the Erma Bombeck Writing Competition--there is even a category for local writers.

Several of my local friends who are great bloggers and hilarious Facebook commenters have been talking smack about winning this thing since we were all shut out two years ago by booger stories.

Nancy Cartwright, Dayton native and the the voice of Bart Simpson, judged the finalists this year. Apparently, she did not like my entry.

Recently, famous blogger and author Jenny Lawson shared an article she had written that was rejected by Oprah's magazine. So, inspired by her, I will share my article that I'm sure made it all the way to Nancy [it did not] and then was rejected for not being about boogers or port-a-johns.
