What in the world are these things!!??? These have set up camp on my parsley.  I noticed them about 5 days ago and they have continued to hang on to the stems??? I really never see them moving but I do know that if you touch them bright orange tentacles pop out from the head!! I only know this because I asked my dad to come and look at the little creatures!! He told me that he had NO idea what they were but when he touched one the tentacles came out and left a terrible odor on his hand??? I actually took several pictures because I think that they are very pretty!!! Check them out to see what you think?????

Do NOT look at my parsley because it is sad...very sad!!! The heat has played havoc on this herb.

A GIRLS gotta get her nails done!!

SanDee has been having some problems with her hooves but I am gonna call them her nails just because she is a girl and girls have nails!!! Sorry but that's just how I feel about the situation and it also ticks my dad off~~so that is really a thrill in-and-of-itself!!!  So~~as you can see she had to have a few metal braces and screws and a little nail glue to fix the problem!!! Looks painful but the MEN assure me that she is not suffering in any way!!!! So I am thinkin' that I will have to believe them~~if nothing else but for my own sanity!!! So--SanDee gets to have a little pampering each day!!!

Sooooo here she is to get her sweeeeet feed~~but little did she know that we were also gonna give her some nail polish for her cracked dry nails!!!! Right up to the cuticle line!!!
I am gonna show ya some of the muscle behind the nail job~~I want to warn you before you see the pictures!!! So don't be alarmed!! My son is in his basketball shorts NO shirt and lace up work-boots!!! Go figure--but I WOULDN'T have him any other way!!!

Now this is my best friend and he is a keeper!!!

Now don't let this picture fool ya!!! He is a big help to Matthew and is always there to help or teach him in any way that he can!!!! That is probably one of the BIGGEST reasons I love him so much!!!

Here is the little darlin' now!!! She knows that something is up but she still wants her sweet feed and corn so she is gonna go for it but keeping an eye on us at all times. Now~~don't worry!!! SanDee is very calm and would never hurt one of us but let me tell ya~~if she doesn't want to do something she ain't gonna do it!!! Remember--these types of horses can move 4 to 5 times their weight.
Here is the bottle of nail-polish and as you can see it is a nice shineeee brownish..greenish..poop color!!! Just being honest here folks!!!

She was actually very well behaved but dad just came in to give a little assistance.  However--Matthew did a fantastic job and all is well with her NAILS!!!! Yeah~~I said it again...DAD!!!LOL!!!

Look at those BIG beautiful hips on that girl~~~not to mention the long beautiful tail!!! Not many Belgian Drafts have the long tail because they are used for working or showing the hips!!! Well I am telling you that I wouldn't have it any other way!!!!

Look at this cute little babeee!!! She can't miss a thing that is going on around this place.  She is also stylin' in her FALL collar with a pumpkin charm!!!!
Tooo cute!!!!

This traumatic event called for a little bit of lovin' and pampering so Rob and Matthew gave her a little extra TLC this evening!!!

Geeeeezzzz this being a beautiful girl is a lot of hard work!!! I am worth it!!! Thanks!!

Wouldn't Have HIM Any Other Way~~~

OK...the title is a little perplexing yet simple rolled up in one??? Well-I am talking about MY son.  I will have to say that it has taken me a little while to say this but I can say it without hesitation and a HEART exploding with love and pride!!!! Yeah~~I said it!!! I am sure that if your honest with yourself you have not always been on the...lets say..the same page as your child.  Really I think that it was that the DREAMS I had for my son were not going to happen--NO Matthew is not going to be an indoor suite wearing breadwinner nor is he going to go to college for 4 or 5 years. He has his own goals, dreams, desires, and things that make him happy and feel good about himself.  So--I guess really what I am saying is I had to stop trying to live thru my child and let him be happy with his decisions.
This is my kid...son...first and only born and~~~~

He has discovered something that has made him feel all those things that I wanted to feel living thru him.  That is being a true blue country boy and welding.  Yeah--he loves welding!!! He has had such great success in his welding classes and loves the hands on skill of creating something with cold metal and a welding rod.  I am so happy that I have let go and instead of me feeling the great success---HE is the one living it and I.......

Jack, KaDee, LuCee, Bash and I decided to spread out a big blanket and enjoy the beautiful FALL weather. We spent about an hour just laughing and watching butterflies. It is amazing how many butterflies that there are this year and little Jack is so observant that he spots them even before I do. This little man is such an amazing addition to our family. It seems just like yesterday that my little brother called to tell us that he was here and now look at him--sitting up, 2 teeth, and a little flannel shirt just like his dad.

This is a site that I have not seen in the almost 25 plus years that I have lived in this house!! Yeah~~I have seen this tree but not a hornets nest in our backyard family tree!! What I mean by the backyard family tree is just right outside our back is where we sit and string is where we laid our tomatoes this year to ripen so they would not fry right on the is where the children climb and have fun so I am thinking that your getting the picture here about the meaning of the family tree. Now~~I do differentiate between the front yard and the back yard because he have one of these leaved creatures in the front yard and the side yard as well!!! Yeah-we are tree crazeeee around here. If you look at the opening of the nest you can see a hornet just peeking out and one that is getting ready to enter the doorway. This is kind of a neat little bit of the weird summer that we have had.

Coming BACK to him~~~

Rob used to do everything from basketball to sleigh riding with Matthew. Then to his great heartbreak his son started getting older and getting that MOM AND DAD ARE STUPID AND GAY AND I NEVER WANT TO BE SEEN WITH THEM attitude. Well~~within the last several months Rob has noticed his son coming BACK to him!!! Matthew started welding but his dad knew very little about it even though Matthew would ask him a few questions concerning welding during our dinner conversations. Sooo~~when Rob came home from work one night and discovered that his son had purchased a very nice bow he got a guarded but very happy look on his face. Matthew was finally going to venture into his world~~and this really is his world because he used to shoot the bow in competions and for pleasure for many years. So--as you can tell from the pic "he is coming BACK to him!!! "
LOVE it!!!!!
