A Fair Day

By Steve Earle

It is official. The 1 stop-light town that son #1 attends school in no longer has a stop-light. It has been converted to a 4-way red flashing stop. Guess the town's officials thought the stop-light was just too much for the tiny community.

I took this picture of the Old Guy out the back door. He was wanting some attention.

Son #1 and Toddler Terror at 8:30 am Saturday morning. Son #1 made the bike he is riding on out of parts from his old bikes. He calls it his 'trick bike'. He has a chopper bike and a Mongoose bike. I asked him why he could not do tricks on his Mongoose bike, which is made specifically for such things, he said he didnt want to tear it up, it was his good bike....? huh?

Son #1 is grounded from his dirt-bike for 2 weeks. I caught him on the county road riding without his helmet. A BIG no-no, which he knows. 1 more week to go, too bad for him! I'll be glad when he tears it up again and it is broke down....I am such a mean mother.

Sometimes, the testosterone level in my house is just too much for me. Can it reach a toxic level? Because, me being surrounded by all this maleness is really starting to get on my nerves.....Ithink Ill get a fish, a female fish. Then maybe I wont feel so out-numbered.

Last week hubby and I discussed what kind of landscaping ideas each of us had for our new yard. Spring is a long ways off so we have a lot of time to plan and do a little bit of research about a variety of shrubs, trees, ect. We are planning on planting a lot of SUCCULENTS (near the house) and some Trees of Rapid Growth. I grew up in N.Michigan where apple trees are abundant. I am thinking about planting a few of them too, along with some hardy pines. Nothing beats the smell of pines....

Aniin BG,

Welcome to another installment of Sarcastic Sunday.:) Love all the male pics. Were the goats and cows male too?

If you have a good bike, as opposed to a clunker bike, the good bike is for show only. You know preening.

A jade plant is a succelent but it is a house plant, I put it in the garage during winter. Aloe vera is pretty hardy. We have wimpy pines down here, the kind grown for pulp and holidays. Give me the smell of a blue spruce.

Diane is taking a nap, we stayed up to watch NASCAR last night. Ma and Pa Kettle having loads of excitement. :( Loads of something.

Kel-Bells is FUN! I wish I was at the big horse show, it was easier w/ wee one to just go to the local fair.

dakotablueeyes-thnx I think the old guy is the prettiest horse ever...but I am biased :)

brian-if we have anymore excitement we might need a valium, yeah right who the hell am I kidding.....definately NOT myself.

I was told the flashing light is only temporary until light is has been out about 3 days..and they did have barrels up..I never go that way..Who knows tho, city may feel it is more economical to leave it flashing...Oh well! That is the way it is in Small Town America!
Have a great Sunday!

Ok- you know I'm excited there were cow pictures- I'm nuts about cows!!! TT is such a little cutie! I bet he had a great time at the fair! I don't blame you for grouding your oldest. Riding that dirtbike without is helmet is VERY dangerous! I swear, these kids, I don't know what it will take to make them learn. As always, thanks for sharing the pics :0)

BG - sounds like you had fun at the fair with TT. Trmpolines are fun! Your plan for landscaping sounds good. Don't apple trees need lots od water for fruits? Maybe there is an OK apple breed that you could plant. D :)
