Two Shoes From Texas Meets No Shoes At The Farm

and we had a ball!!!  Two Shoes got to see I wasn't lying about all my messes and work I have to do. Wendy was a delight as was her husband John.  I think this is a lovely picture of Wendy but, alas, my model days are over.

I went all out for refreshments...Oreos and iced tea!

The time was spent seeing all the places I talk about on this blog, meeting our animals and just touring.  There was lots of laughter and even some mechanical break downs.  Tractor man had to tow us in the Ranger to the house.  Ah, such is farming.

Thank you, Wendy and John for taking a chance that we were not ax murderers and stopping by to visit.
Y'all are welcome any time!

Two Shoes word prompts for this Tuesday were peace or play.  I believe this may be a story about both of these.

This was a nice meeting, Gail. It looks like the both of you were having fun (girls just wanna). I did that in London this summer, meeting Joss, aka 'Soul Brush' (6WS and FB pal) there, and ending up bringing a pretty picture she painted and had for sale back home with me.

Be careful going barefooted. Mom always made us kids wear shoes so we wouldn't cut our feet on glass left laying around by former residents.

Great post, Gail! I have no doubt that it was fun!

Gail, our visit to your farm was one of brightest highlights of our vacation. We truly had a blast! There was no shortage of conversation, a whirlwind tour of many of the amazing creations you've seen here, and a Ranger ride across her many acres that left us longing for more! Papa Bear even got a turn at driving the Ranger home, and he grinned like a 5 yr old all the way. (Our Ranger at home was so very jealous of this gorgeous landscape we told it about!) People like to say that blog friends aren't "real friends". To that I say "baloney!" Gail is as warm and genuine as she appears in her posts, her home is a whimsical treasure, and her corner of God's green earth is a place I can't even find words to describe. Tractorman is such a sweetie, not only giving us the grand tour of their acres, but also encouraging an up close and personal visit with the resident big bull and his harem! :-) I got to meet and greet all of Gail's beloved furkids, and we talked non-stop until it was time for us to head on down the road and them to head off to their grandson's football game, which they won by the way! Nothing is more fun than meeting up with blog friends in real time, I encourage all of you to set aside your fears and "just do it"! Thank you for the amazing Arkansas style hospitality Gail and Tractorman, we left with memories that will keep us smiling forever (and longing for a way to move our box house from the dry barren west Texas earth to the green hills and rivers back east!

Josie Two Shoes said...

By the way, I love that you've adopted that new profile photo, it is gorgeous, and every bit the way you are in real life, holding on to one of your beloved rocks, this one too big for Tractorman to tow home! :-)

LindaG said...

That's great! Wish I could talk hubby into taking a trip that way sometime.

Lynne said...

What fun . . . I did a meet up with a blogger friend yesterday too! No ax in hand either . . .

Dreaming said...

What fun! I'm jealous! I want to visit, too! (Oreos sound wonderful!)
Maybe some day!

Sue said...

I love Josie's comment.

I've never had a bad experience meeting up with a blog friend, and if I'm ever in Arkansas, you'd better know I'll be trying to work that out!

=)
