Fancy Talkin' Zippo

My new boy will be coming home tomorrow! Fancy Talkin' Zippo is his registered name, but to us he's Charlie! We're not too fancy around this farm!

I am so excited! I'll post more photos of him getting to know the girls when he gets here.

Share A Site

I found a site this morning that I might just be hooked on! I rarely make a post just to share a site but here goes!

It's called Instructables.

Right now I am hung up in the Gardening section!

If you have a site you love and want to share, post it in the comments!

Incubator Time Again

And it's all filled up!

Banties, full-sized chickens and TURKENS!

Why I think I need turkens is a mystery to me, but I'm hoping they hatch!

Dirt Cat

We are often asked how Dirt Cat got his name....

When we got him 5 years ago, he would curl up in my flower pots and sleep....

My oldest son said he was like dirt in the pot....

Five years later....We still have a Dirt Cat!

Cowboy Boots and HDR

I've been playing with my new camera and some HDR (high dynamic range) software.

Tell me what you think!

Spring is almost here and I am so ready to get outside with my Canon and really try it out!

Riding Lizzy

Spent the day riding with my little sister. She hadn't been on a horse in years and I didn't even get a photo of her, but she got one of me and Lizzy.

I'll get one of her next weekend. We had a great time and she has already decided she needs a horse now. I bought another horse last week. His name is Charlie and he'll be coming home soon!!
