home on the range.

i live on the frontier.  no, really.  i hear coyotes howling at night, which is bad news for fox and his  young boy dreams of someday sleeping out on the trampoline.  the other day a dust devil tore off the foothill and knocked my house around and flipped over our tramp, which ironically is more wind action than i ever saw in tornado alley.  and then while i talking with one of my nearest and dearest on the horn, i looked out the window to see that the cows had come home.  and i just walked headlong into my bathroom doorframe.  that last sentence has nothing to do with the post topic, but i didn't know how to work it in, and i feel less stupid about that kind of stuff if i admit to it outright.

I don't know how I missed these..I've checked this twice a day for a month...at least! It made my heart happy to see that Elko hasn't gotten the best of you:)
We really really really need to meet up somewhere and catch up...if it needs to be in Europe, I'm in;)
Love you guys!

I really thought that you had been attacked by a wild boar. Or a native Elko-an.

You should keep snacks on your front porch for them. Before you know it, Indie will be a 4-H superstar.

(Please tell me that you know what 4-H is.)

Also, your word verifications are REALLY HARD.

old me.
