Now~~if you have been here at our farm—your well aware that this water is not really supposed to be there!!! This is only the 2nd time that I can remember that the water has gotten this high!!! So…for those of you that know us~~this is pretty darn exciting bizness!

Finally~~he is getting with the program! I have been waiting on you for several hours this morning. Really not—but for SanDee 15 mints is waaaaay tooooo long to wait on food!!!

Look at all that hay flying around~~WOW!! No wonder he is doing this!!!! Ok—I am just gonna’ say that I didn’t raise him to do this!!! I think maybe his father did???  I am just sayin’!!!
SanDee and High Water 03-12-11 026
I am sure that he just has some bits of hay that have gotten trapped into his nostril hairs~not a boooger!!! For-heaven-sakes-to-betzzz!!
SanDee and High Water 03-12-11 032
The pups are so happy to see their master~~you know I really don’t like that word!!! I would rather say their puppy buddy!!! Yeah…yeah that’s what he is!!! “PUPPY BUDDY”
SanDee and High Water 03-12-11 034
Cooper doesn’t want him to leave~~after all that is his “PUPPY BUDDY”!!
SanDee and High Water 03-12-11 035
Chief looks totally devastated that he didn’t stick around for a good ol’ “PUPPY BUDDY” lick on the cheek.
SanDee and High Water 03-12-11 038
There pics are of the road that runs in front of our home!! I don’t think that I need to tell ya’ that the water is not supposed to be over the road! I just thought I should inform ya’ of that because of all the terrible things going on in the world right now—this kinda’ seems trivial and minor and maybe even normal!!!

Have I Told You?

Have I..I am sure that I have…well…let me just tell ya’ all again!  It snows every year on my b-day!! Last year 2010 was the first year for many many years that it has not been snowing.  Well~~Mother Nature didn’t let me down.  It was actually one day after my b-day but who's counting the days!!! I mean really?? It was a within the 24 hour period of my birth so I am gonna’ count it as my day!!!
