Hey and Howdy Yall. So glad Yall got the chance to stop by and visit with Us today. Hope Your Family is doing well. Fat and Sassy as My Grandaddy use to say. We have really been enjoying this warm weather Yall. Hope You got the chance to get out of the house this past weekend and enjoy the sunshine too.
We celebrated two birthdays this past week. Gracie’s on the 11th and Jake’s on the 12th. We told Jake when Grace was born that she was his birthday present. He teases her every year about that. I just cant believe they are getting so big. Where does the time go? It seems like only yesterday they where babies in My arms. I miss them being that small sometimes. But I am really proud of them. I don’t just love them, I like them too. They both have such fun personalities. They are a joy to be around and are going to be good adults someday. Such a blessing. And I get to be their Mom 🙂
We have been getting a lot of “junk” mail lately but We love hearing from Yall and try to answer everyone back as quickly as We can. Charlene from Illinois wrote in not long ago asking if We could tell everyone more about Our Rooster Roscoe. Well Charlene, Roscoe is a Rhode Island Red Rooster. He came to the Ranch from the little Auction in Timmonsville (that has since closed). He was a very young rooster then not even crowing good. We named him after Roscoe P. Coltrane, a character from the TV show The Dukes of Hazzard. On the show Roscoe was the goofy sheriff strutting around tending to everyone’s business. This just seemed to fit Our little rooster to a tee. He is a tough little guy too. He has fended off foxes, coyotes and wild dogs. He is a bit of a Romeo tho, he does loves the hens. He has a wicked sense of humor too. Since He has gotten older His crowing has gotten a lot better. He use to crow at odd times of the day. He actually crows now just before sunrise. This is the sense of humor part…… He does this at Our Bedroom window.. right where the head of My bed is sitting. And He will not just crow once.. He crows until He hears Me get up. And if the Kids forget and leave the screen door open, He will be on Our back porch in a flash. He hid under the table last winter and We didn’t see him. The kids locked the screen door at night so He stayed on the porch all night. Scared Me outta My witts the next day. I didn’t know I could move that fast.
For Us this past week was full of much needed and unexpected blessings. The kind that makes You know with out a doubt that God is hearing and answering Your prayers. We know that God has a plan for each of Us. We are so thankful for His many, many blessings. We are praying for blessings for You too.
We have really enjoyed Your visit today. Hope Yall get a chance to come back and see Us again real soon. ~Love from the Ranch~
