More ReRuns

Keeping with the idea behind my last blog, here are a few more 'Re-runs' from Facebook. This First was titled 'Yes or No Share' where you were supposed to only say yes or no to a question, but of course you all know me and I did not only say one small word. But some of them were kinda funny, so here goes:

thinking that Sam (I Am) walked through as I was typing that, thus the inspiration and of course your buddy came up with that phrase about the middle 2/3's, I don't know what he's talking about, I just like to sleep close, snuggle, LOL he's a whiner! hee hee

Okay hopefully next week will yield the opportunity for a 'real' blog. We are amidst fair cattle showing season at our house and that is very time consuming, besides show day there's generally a preparation day and a clean-up after day, which means missing 3 days of doing whatever, and of course that means catching up on the in between ones........ I wouldn't miss this time for the world as I know it will soon enough be a memory. Hope everyone else is having a great summer, I know we are.

Getting ready for the fair~
