Wish I were creative and just thinkin up tall tales to entertain others...
As my BFF, Lori, has gotten me into saying ~
"Are you KIDDING me?!"
I'm sure by now folks have figured out that our farmhouse is a crazy place.
Enough to scare away any sane person.
I'm known to run screaming out into the fields on occasion when it's all just too much...
But this takes the cake.
Here I am hosting a pony playdate...
(A schoolmate interested in riding lessons has brought her pony to play. Her not crazy mother staying to watch n chat.)
Trying to have house, barn, ring, kids, critters all lookin their best...
Our inner redneck just seems to have to show itself.
I'm sure this is what I get after busting on someone else yesterday who had colored Chritmas lights up on their rickety porch last night as we drove past...
I was on the phone w/The Farmer and made some joke 'bout hillbillies...
God was not amused!
Ya know~ "people who live in glass houses..."
After we'd finished riding and carefully groomed n put away the ponies, we came into the house for snacks and a nice civilized mommy chat.
Til we realized that while we thought the kids were outside playing, someone was upstairs playing.
I cautiously went up and was met by Olivia sliding across the floor as she tried to dash back down.
She's never allowed upstairs...
Was she chasing a chicken or the cat?
Nope all accounted for.
UNDER SARAH'S BED!!!!!!!
Probably the same one that had been up to somethin in the hayloft earlier.
The Farmer quickly created a snare w/some copper pipe n wire. (He's very useful for wildman activities n such!)
Sadly it was acting even crazier than we were - approaching us again when let loose and The Farmer had to shoot it.
Hard to believe too that the sweet, not crazy momma still said nice things and left both daughter and pony here for an overnight!
I guess she figures at least we're not this kinda crazy~ YIKES!
(photo curtesy Google "crazy images")Puleeeeze, somebody out there...
Has ANYTHING like this ever happened to you?!
Ever? Why me? ALL THE TIME?!
(Clearly we need to order custom $$$ screen doors ~Fast!)
