This was once a family page of photos of my daughter and I. Jessi has since gotten married and moved on with her life. I have turned this page into an anything page. Be forewarned that there is religion, politics and even some profanity on this page! If that is going to offend you stop and go to another page now... but some of the stuff on here is really funny!
HOW TO INSTALL A SOUTHERN HOME SECURITY SYSTEM
1. Go to The Salvation Army store and buy a pair of men's work boots.
2. Place them on your front porch along with copy of Guns & Ammo magazine.
3. Put four giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazines.
4. Leave a note on your door that reads:
Bertha, Duke, Slim and I went for more ammo. Don't mess with the dogs. They got the mailman this morning and messed him up bad. I don't think Killer took part but it was hard to tell from all of the blood. Anyway, I locked all four of'em in the house. Better wait outside. Be right back.
God our Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses and please watch over and heal my family in Jesus name, Amen.

Duckie first saddling
Happy Birthday Jesus
I got this email the other day and found it so profound that I had to share it.....
I am passing this on to you because it definitely works and we could all use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice I heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace. Dr. Phil proclaimed "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and never finished." So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off 8 cans of Miller Lite, a bottle of Absolut, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos and a box of chocolates. You have no idea how freaking good I feel. Please pass this on to those you feel might be in need of inner peace.

Poncho is my very best friend! Poncho's mom stepped on him and broke his back when he was a baby puppy. I raised him on a 3 cc syringe and then a baby bottle. He is absolutely the love of my live and goes everywhere with me.

The Woman Marine Pilot
The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment:
Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day, the kids came back and, one by one, began to tell their stories.
"Janie, do you have a
story to share?"
She drank the whiskey on the way down so it wouldn't spill, and then her parachute landed her right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops. She shot 15 of them with her pistol, until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with her knife, till the blade broke, and so she killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands."
"Good Heavens,' said
the horrified teacher. What did your Daddy tell you was the moral to this awful

Here are some wild photos... This is a mare that we bought to ride... she was sold to us as old lady broke! These photos of this mare were taken right AFTER the first time that we tried to get on our new mare that we bought as "granny broke". The only reason we had the camera outside was to take photos of our neat new mare being rode. Imagine our shock as these were the only photos that we had the opportunity to take. Can anybody say ALPO?

that good and obedient wives would be found

And then He made the earth round.
DeNozzo Jasper (by BS Buckley)
Here is a little trivia for you: what you see in the 2 photos above are examples of bites of 2 different colts at about the same age. The first photo is of a dun colt we had named DeNozzo the second is Buckleys White Gold a perlino colt we had. These are photos we took to show potential buyers when we sold both of these colts. As you can see DeNozzo's (brother to our colt McGee) top and bottom teeth match perfectly; he has an "even bite". Jasper's top teeth are not even with his bottom teeth, he is "parrot mouthed" which is a genetic disorder.
Don't you know, pillows are for puppies!

FIVE RULES TO REMEMBER IN LIFE
Duckie is peaking under Goldie... TOO CUTE!
Miss Kiddy during one of her first rides (with Glenda).
A little girl had been shopping with her mom at Wal-Mart. She must have been 6 years old, this beautiful red haired, freckled face of innocence.
outside. The kind of rain that gushes over the top of rain gutters, so much in a
hurry to hit the earth it has no time to flow down the spout.. We all stood
there, under the awning, just inside the door of the Wal-Mart.
I am always mesmerized by rainfall. I got lost in the sound and sight of the heavens washing away the dirt and dust of the world. Memories of running, splashing so carefree as a child came pouring in as a welcome reprieve from the worries of my day.
Her little voice was so sweet as it broke the hypnotic trance we were all caught in, 'Mom let's run through the rain,'
'What?' Mom asked.
'Let's run through the rain!' She repeated.
'No, honey. We'll wait until it slows down a bit,' Mom replied.
This young child waited a minute and repeated: 'Mom, let's run through the rain..'
'We'll get soaked if we do,' Mom said.
'No, we won't, Mom. That's not what you said this morning,' the young girl said as she tugged at her Mom's arm.
'This morning? When did I say we could run through the rain and not get wet?'
'Don't you remember? When you were talking to Daddy about his cancer, you said, ' If God can get us through this, He can get us through anything! ' '
The entire crowd stopped dead silent.. I swear you couldn't hear anything but the rain.. We all stood silently. No one left. Mom paused and thought for a moment about what she would say.
Now some would laugh it off and scold her for being silly. Some might even ignore what was said. But this was a moment of affirmation in a young child's life. A time when innocent trust can be nurtured so that it will bloom into faith.
'Honey, you are absolutely right. Let's run through the rain. If GOD let's us get wet, well maybe we just need washing,' Mom said.
Then off they ran. We all stood watching, smiling and laughing as they darted past the cars and yes, through the puddles. They got soaked.
They were followed by a few who screamed and laughed like children all the way to their cars. And yes, I did.
I ran. I got wet. I needed washing.
Circumstances or people can take away your material possessions, they can take away your money, and they can take away your health. But no one can ever take away your precious memories...So, don't forget to make time and take the opportunities to make memories everyday.
To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.
I HOPE YOU STILL TAKE THE TIME TO RUN THROUGH THE RAIN.

Josie, the miracle girl and her puppies...
During her emergency c-section Josie died on the operating table. What happened next was the most stunning experience of my life. All four of the ladies helping the vet as well as myself were crying out to God to save her life. I was a hysterical sobbing mess, I was not praying any special prayer or reciting any scriptures. I was just crying and begging for God to bring her back. She was gone for 10 minutes when He gave her back to me. Only God knows why He does the things that he does but just the fact that the puppies and Josie are alive is a real honest miracle. I am not a special or super godly person and Josie is just a little Heeler dog but God loves us all no matter how average or unimportant we are. Maybe someone is looking at the website or is going to that this story will help them in some way, I don't know and it isn't important to me that I ever know. Just know that God loves YOU and He cares about you, not just people in general and not just to see you go to Heaven but He really cares about you personally. I've asked God for a lot of things in my life that never happened but He sees the big picture and all of the times I asked God for something and they didn't come about it was worth all of that for Him to give me Josie back.
The photos below are of Josie as a puppy and as an adult with Cayenne who is standard size.
Above photos are of Josie as a puppy at 6 weeks old and as an adult. Josie's normal adult wt is 17 pounds.
