Chats On The Farmhouse Porch

Before we get to the chat, I'm pleased to report that Rylea is home!  She looks somewhat worse for the wear.  OK, OK, she looks quite a bit worse for the wear, but she's finally home.

As you can see, she has certainly earned the nickname of Frankendog.

And here is the other side.

No, I don't know what happened to her.  I asked her, but she wouldn't say.  I keep reminding her that she is not a cat, and even if she were, she's quickly running out of lives.

In other news, I have a mind boggling amount of soup in my freezer.  After paying that vet bill, it may be all I have to eat for the next two months.

Now, on to the chat.

Everyday Ruralty

1.  Please tell me the three most valuable things you learned as a child or young person. 

To read, the value of money, and to be strong and independent. 

2.  Did you participate in Black Friday or Cyber Monday? 

No and yes.  I never participate in Black Friday. I did buy a couple of Kindle books from Amazon during their Cyber Monday sale, but they weren't gifts.  They were marked down to $1.99, and I couldn't resist those prices. 

3.  Do you pray?


4.  Have you been invited to any parties to celebrate Christmas or New Year? 

No.  No one invites me to parties.  I guess they all know I'm just going to decline anyway.  

5.  Have you ever owned cowboy boots or a cowboy hat? (A cowboy? Tee-hee :) Just had to throw that one in for fun!) 

Yes to both, a long time ago.  I gave my boots away after I got pregnant and my feet grew two sizes.  After the ex walked out, being a single mom, there were higher priorities, so I never got any more.  I kept my hat, but I don't know what happened to it.  The last time I saw it, it was in the bedroom closet in my brother's house.  Then it disappeared.  I think one of his friends might have nicked it.  The same one who stole his Beatles Anthology.  Long story...

The ex liked to think he was a cowboy, but he just wore the clothes.  He never actually herded cattle.  Me, on the other hand...I used to help my uncle with his cattle back when he had them.  

Thanks for joining me for the chat.  I was going to watch some TV, but Frankendog is in my chair, and I don't have the heart to run her out of it.  So, I guess I'll put on some Christmas music and knit.

Poor Rylea, she truly looks like a Frankendog. I hope she is better soon.

I'm happy that Rylea is home. The scars will heal. I can't imagine what happened. She's worth eating a bunch of soup. Sorry the vet bills are so high. Been there-done that. Have a good week
