That's Some Diorama

A week or so ago I came home from work and Justin had an Important Paper on the table for me. It was a note about his 3rd grade Charlotte's Web diorama assignment. Interestingly, I had to sign an acknowledgement that I knew about the assignment and its due date. Which, depending on your assessment of the state of parental support of education, was either brilliant or sad.


So we got to work recreating the scene where Charlotte writes "SOME PIG" in the web. The problem: the sheep tells Wilbur he is going to get killed. (This is how Justin describes the scene in his TYPED (required) summary.) Since we didn't have a rat, we improvised with a small pig, a Sharpie, a pipe cleaner tail and two red painted eyes.
 
 
 
 
No farm kid-produced diorama of E.B. White's classic tale could be complete without REAL straw and a selection of plastic farm animals from his personal collection. Thanks to the crafting gene Justin inherited from me via his maternal retired teacher Grandma, he had plenty of pipe cleaners on hand to create fencing and a pitch fork.
 

 
We also used pipe cleaners to create the web and the SOME PIG letters. Justin had the all the right stuff on hand to make Charlotte look great. I happen to be especially proud of our weather vane.
 
Justin is taking his project to school tomorrow, and I'm confident he will earn a good grade. But just in case, we are sending in the paternal retired teacher Grandma to help him deliver it to the classroom.
 
She won't leave without the A+ for Justin, even if she has to make her own sign that says, "SOME DIORAMA."

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…

Snapshots on the Farm

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.
