I should tell you; I should tell you.
[That’s from Rent. You should see it many times, if you haven’t already. It will change your life.]
Curt would like for me to learn how to make Pringles
. while I do
have occasional bouts with fabulous-ness
, I feel this is one area I cannot conquer. If you thought I was the kind of person who could make this happen, I am so sorry
A new money jar has been put into service [back story here]
. It’s an old whiskey jug
that I found in a fabulous primitive antique store in Lowell
. It’s my new favorite place. You can’t get your hand down in there, which keeps Little Grabber out. AND, it has more story that the glass cube. I like things with story. You
have story. I also like you.
I think we have a brand. Can I just remind y’all that you rock?
You are so very much a part of this place, it’s hysterical. I hope it means you will feel right at home when you visit. Or, move in. But, I digress. I usually do digress.
We settled on TexasNorth Land & Cattle (no Co.).
Simple. I do like both, but I like simple better. Your brand ideas
in the comments and emails that followed last week were exactly
what I needed to get my brain moving again. Here she is, to your right: (ignore the amoeba around it… no amoeba).
See how the ‘North’ part goes up and to the right a bit? Yeah. I love that. We’re North and to the right of The Mother Country
, so it’s true. I like things that are true.
The Boy shot an 8-point buck
Thanksgiving morning… he’s a pretty one. It’s his 2nd deer ever and I think this one will be a trophy for the wall. In a very real way, it will put food on our table for the next year… and we are so very thankful for that.
Whiskey jugs, Pringles, an iron brand, and an 8-point buck. That’s what I got for you folks.
People! It’s December!!! Holy frijoles. You have a fabulous day. Be nice and laugh lots, ok?
