Super Sunday

What a week! Not one I want to re-live anytime soon.

Like much of the country, West Texas was in Old Man Winter’s icy clutch last week. Temperatures below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Wind blew for three days straight 40 to 50 mph. Wind chills registering -30F!!

The Texan and I did battle with no gas (not the stomach kind, the house-heating kind), no water in the house because of frozen pipes, and a big water leakage freeze-a-palooza with our well. The Texan is seeing money signs flying around possible replacement of the well. 

Checked out some of our cattle at the grow-yard yesterday. Lots of the young cattle didn’t make it through the cold blast. Some of their sad, lifeless bodies were drug to the side of the yard. Other bodies were still littering the pens.  The owners and employees of this cattle grow-yard looked drawn and weary.  They’d worked their butts off under unbelievably bitter conditions to save cattle.  Talk about good people….they are my heroes.  Crazy storms…..s**t happens.  Let’s keep on keepin’ on.

But hey, we’re still here and we have lots for which to be grateful.  Today it is snowing, and it almost seems warm compared to the frigid weather of just a few days ago.  We desperately need this moisture.

To kick-off your Super Sunday, I’m sharing this little, short (har-har) video. It gives you a taste of what it’s like to live with a highly interactive wiener dog. She’s doing what she was born to do. Perhaps it will make you smile??

Now….lean back in your recliner. Light the fire. Gather family/friends and the young’uns around.  Grab your favorite adult beverage and scoop that chip deep into your favorite carb-laden dip.  Savor this Sunday.  Eat a brat for me, will you?
Highly interactive love to all.

  1. Bummer on the ill effects of the winter blow. Sad to hear about the cattle, but I guess it's just the circle of life.Several years ago, the neighbors wiener dog bit our lady Malamute. She hasn't forgotten the experience, and now views all small dogs as mere morsels to dine on. Luckily there haven't been any injuries or fatalities, yet.

  2. He may be little, but he sure is fast – and he TALKS to you, too – haaaaaaaaaa, what a sweetie!Gosh, I can't even imagine living through the week you've just had, what an utter nightmare. And here I was feeling sorry for myself because our guttering fell off the roof in last weeks storm – sheesh, I'm never going to whine again!
