Stuff I got…

Monday, December 25th, 2006

This year for Christmas, I got a drawing book, a Far Side desk calender and a novel called, “Mason Dixon”.  Kim got two new saucepans and a sil pad.  We both got a new house and twenty acres.  Mom says she got the dogs something, so that’s good.  We will be heading over to my nephew Beau’s for dinner and huddled smoking and bullshitting on the back porch.

Mom said her hearing aid just went dead, so we’ve taken the opportunity to talk about her without her hearing us.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas.


Politicians beware….

Saturday, December 23rd, 2006

Whoever can make two ears of corn or two blades of grass to grow where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind and do more essential service to his country than the whole race of politicians combined— Jonathon Swift (1667-1745)

Hello all-

Today marks a sad day in the Barnyard.  Our mascot, Tumorchicken has moved on the great coop in the sky.  Please take a moment of silence, her time was too short.

Alrighty! Content Baby!

anxiously awaiting departure…

It’s hard to wait sometimes, there’s still a lot to do before we can move on.  Preparing the house for sale, getting the coffee business ready for me to move out there and run, buying a espresso machine(no small task), finding someone to buy the coffee from when we’re back there…jeez.  That’s the short list.  But everyday when I sit in bummer to bummer traffic (on the fucking back roads!) it only feeds the fire to have a different pace of life.  I’m not totally sure what to expect and that’s part of the adventure.  We have a perfect opportunity to build something that’ll last and sustain us…and make more!

I’ll get to the Barnyard stories at some point, I’m still getting my blogging feet under me.  Besides every story begins with some kind of premonition, something that makes me happy or raises the hair on the back of my neck.  That’s hard to describe.
