I have to laugh when I remember him walking out from his office after work. He was carrying this huge lily with a big grin on his face and brought it to the car. From a few feet away I thought he had blood all over his face and was a little concerned. It looked like he had cut his face in several places while shaving but being 50 and having a few memory issues I did not remember this in the morning. After he got in the car I looked closer and he had dark, almost blood red pollen all over his face. I gave him a kiss and thanked him and I toyed with the idea of letting him walk around in the grocery store like that just to see the reaction of people around him. But while driving I just could not help myself. I began to laugh out loud and he looked at me smiling but didn't say anything. Finally I gave in and told him to look in the mirror. After looking he tried to wipe it off but all it did was smear perhaps a little fainter in color. I don't know how long he walked around at work like that but I burst into laughter again just imagining his co-workers ignoring this orange stuff all over his face. It still makes me laugh out loud. I asked him if he even wondered why I was laughing in the car before I told him and he said "No, you always laugh at your own jokes and you have a weird imagination".
I don't either.
I received this award from Twinville at Laughing Orca Ranch. She passed it on to me yesterday and I feel so honored that someone out there thinks my little old blog just might be awesome. I love the names she has given her chickens.... Phyllis Diller, Sid Vicious and Mr. and Mrs. Cotton. What a hoot. Thank you Laughing Orca Ranch.
Plain Old Kristi who is living a life in New Orleans of sustainability. I love to visit and see what she is growing, sewing, cooking, preserving, and her ideas of how to live frugally and simply. She also has some cool chickens which I of course like.
Farm Girl at On The Way To Critter Farm who has the cutest donkeys and some very crazy looking chickens. You know me and chickens. I love to see her photos of things these animals are doing. It makes me feel like I am right there with her.
Jeanelle at Midlife By Farmlight who always inspires me to think about my Christianity and has a fun humor as well as she has an eye for unusual photos on her dairy farm. I learn something new every time I visit her blog.
