When we last left our crazy globe-trotting author, she was about to embark on a lovely jaunt to cattle country to cause mayhem and mischief. How did it go? Let’s find out…
Well…horse ranching is quite the adventure…especially when you have three dogs, four cats, a pony, and some longhorn cattle thrown into the mix for fun. Did I mention that one of the minions proved determined to pet said cattle? And that he tried to trot the smallest one out there on their own? No? Well…let’s just say the mayhem was ridiculous (and I lost about fifty years off my life!). One kiddo proved pretty allergic to something (he was wrapped up in blankets and playing nickjr on my laptop for most of a day and night while I had to keep him from scratching…then there was eye goop…ugh).
I helped out with some Quilts for Kids projects, took some pictures, and oohed and awwwwwwed over some of the quilts that had come in. SuperChef bailed on cooking after only doing it once so yours truly had to fill in. About halfway into our ranch adventure, a very large dog by the name of BIG BOY (he was a small horse, really) decided he was my lap dog. Since I love dogs, it wasn’t a hardship for me, but he WAS playing havoc on allergy-boy and any writing I needed to get done. So we had a discussion. On his level. Didn’t work so well.
Saturday morning found us loaded up in the truck and sent off to our apartment. Oh heavenly apartment, how I’ve longed to lie against your carpeted…bosom? Hmm. Oh yesh. No furniture. But it’s not a hotel, ranch, car (or other vehicle), friend/stranger’s home or cardboard box…all of which were either a part of this adventure or very near.
So here we are, in lovely San Antonio. This week began with my birthday, finding a place to live, being moved out of our hotel (b/c of mismanagement several families were displaced), setting up at a ranch, and now here…in our apartment.
This trip lasted from January 13th to January 28th. What a crazy adventure.
So what do I know? I know I’m looking forward to boring.
This writer is about done-in. So it’s to bed for me.
*Ridiculum: A series of ridiculous events, usually occuring within a short period of time. Also called a Ridicularia and Ri-dik-ki-doodle. Related to Ridi-cardia…a heart attack triggered by the ridiculous. Beware the Ridiculum. BEWAAAARE.
