Timmy is always teaching me something new.

More lessons learned from Timmy.
Here is what I have learned so far:
1. Be nice to everyone.
2. Bring gifts, especially chocolate cupcakes, cookies that you bake, or candy bars. If you can’t bring any food, pick some fresh wild flowers.
3. Smile.
4. Be helpful without being asked. Just look for ways to help. There are a million ways to be helpful just watch for opportunities.
5. Tell someone that you are their buddy and wrap your arms around them.
6. Do man’s work if you are a man and woman’s work if you are a woman, that way you won’t get too tired.
7. Get a happy meal at McDonalds and play with the toy.
8. Be thankful for everything!
9. Pick up after yourself.
10. Enjoy each day because this is the day the LORD has made, be glad and rejoice in it.

Boot City

Boot City

 Boot City

I suppose I am dating myself, but boots were made not for fashion but for functionality.  I remember my first pair, a light golden brown made by company that is now out of business.  They were $50.00 a handsome price for boots forty years ago.  Luckily I had a grandfather who loved to spoil his oldest granddaughter.

Things have changed, especially boots.  Now boots have rhinestones, tooled leather with intricate patterns, colored leather, like these coral ones http://www.bootcity.com/corral-boots .  There is no limit to the variations.  Need your college logo, your passion, your religious affiliation, it all can be stated on your very fashionable boots.  No longer are boots relegated to just the farm, but for the town, the church, the club.  They are fashion statements that explain your story.

One place that carries all of your boot needs is Boot City.  If you are looking for the standard boot made for long hours in the saddle, or a boot for work, or a boot to explain your story, I know for certain you will find it at www.bootcitycom.

Also check out all of their clothing, hat, leather, and belt selections.

Boot City can always be reached toll free at 888-543-2668.

 

Frosty and His Kids

26 Mar

Frosty has one love, kids.  Frosty is a Great Pyrenees, full of fluff and love.  He can also be a fierce protector if he feels that anything is being threatened here at the farm.

One activity that he loves more than anything else is to sit on the laps of kids and on occasion, lying on them.  He weighs 130 pounds, but the kids still encourage him to lie on them.  On this particular day, Chris, bored with watching his brother Michael ride, decided to see if Frosty would sit on him too.  Chris sat on the ground and patted his stomach welcoming the pup to sit.  Frosty wagged his tail in anticipation of having a new friend and sat.

Chris laughed and assured me that he could still breath.  His parents laughed and Chris was grinning from ear to ear.  He had found love too.  His brother had found love in riding Pumpkin and Chris found love in a big furry dog, named Frosty.  They both found what they were looking for in furry creatures at a farm that raises dreams.

Do you have an animal that loves to do strange things?  Please share!
