Thomas Cooks Dinner

Well, actually Mom cooked the dinner. But the recipe came from Thomas' new cookbook. And it was delicious!

Holliman Tradition

We did have a little bit of bacon with breakfast. It's a Holliman Guy thing?

Weekend For Four

We sure missed having Thomas to help fix the fence, and hang the new bird feeder (shown above Charles' shoulder). Sorry he wasn't feeling great. See him in a few weeks. Thanks for the visit.

Seeing this giant squirrel (NOT HH! -- next to him) along the main highway thru Simonton made us turn around and try their homemade pralines. They were awfully good!

Rockdale September

Russell had some good photos of the many butterflies that happened to be fluttering by. Charles had one on his fingertip right before this photo was snapped. We'll withhold the water-fight photos until Michelle and Mark recover (and approve) but the girl was very outnumbered by the boys. Dianne would have been a definite asset in that adventure.

First Day of School

The first day of school has come and gone. There were a few tears as the boys got settled into their new classrooms, but by the end of the day they were passed that and excited about the new year.

Fun at the Ranch

Harvey and Friendly 40 - a picture worth a 1,000 words. And note the new calf, from Cora Sue (2008 Fair Heifer), our first white faced one, with ears that match her mother's.

All fired up...

and ready for the last reading class for the summer.

Happy Mother's Day!

The boys "suprised" Mom with a breakfast-in-bed menu of their own
design: sausage kolache, breakfast bar, two kinds of tea, diet coke,
and some flowers.

If a Tree Falls?

 Sitting on the back porch, we heard a big crash, and went to the center hill to find this tree down. It hadn't been as windy today as the previous days, but root rot won this battle. Cows seemed to enjoy the green leaves!

"Green" Machines

  True eco-friendly yard mowing. Or is that yard moo-ing? We're ready for earth day.

The Joke’s on Mom

I don’t know if its an April Fool’s gag, or if someone in the kitchen woke up late, but the “nutritious” breakfast at school this morning consisted of doughnuts and french fries.

Thomas on the Wii Fit

Thomas and Charles played with the Wii Fit this morning. Charles was a natural at the hula-hoop. Thomas... not so much.

"Today" Goes Riding with Saltgrass

Live Party Coverage

There's a new QIK group created for the birthday celebrations today. It's a live stream from my phone, or if I'm not doing that it'll show past clips from the day.

Rockdale February

We had fun despite very cold windy weather. We're happy to finally have a gate opener after a six year wait. Thomas tried his skill at photography with some good results. And who needs a jungle gym when you have a cattle pen? Happy belated birthday, Russell, and pre-birthday for T.

Where's The Rain?

  Weather reports say we are in extreme drought, no significant rain for the past 18 months. Evidence here at the tank where we fished from the bank last year.

Comfort Food

When the economy is down, people turn to comfort food. And nothing say "comfort" like pork products.

  The Holliman Boys came to bowl. Auntie Jen looked ready to roll. Charles turns SIX.
