I love my house, my garden, my Chickie's, and my life in paradise. This week we have a group of people coming that follows no rules, no guidelines, no sensibilities. Let's just put everything a small town person holds dear - whether they realize it or not - these people toss carelessly into the wind.
I ran into a group of lawmen this morning (Love calling them lawmen,) expect chaps, tin stars, cowboy hats...Roy Rogers or John Wayne. That should bring a stereo typical idea to all of your minds. This is my town. It could also be Borger except the stores here on Main Street do not have any boards covering their windows. Which is not meant in any disrespect. It is alive and well. Children ride their bikes up and down the streets - people walk from their homes to town or to their groceries. It is a bit smaller than Borger! I loved Main Street Borger Texas. I loved working at Denny's Men's wear. I also loved eating french fries at the M.E. Moses lunch Counter. Ah, Small Town U.S.A.!
To give you an idea of what I found when I did my drive this am, the Shelby's were in town. They were all the reproduction cars. What I found interesting here, I stopped to talk to the men to find out more about their cars. I wanted more information. What I find interesting is I do not really flirt. I am not comfortable flirting. I do love to chat. I love getting information and if it is something I am into such as Shelby - which is my daughter's name - well I am really into that. This man could not have been more stand offish. I almost had to pull my gun on him to get the info. Boy would that not have been a surprise to him! haha! Still don't know if I would have gotten the info. So I did what any proud Texas woman would have done, I got out of my Lexus, wearing my Lucchese boots and Levi 501's, pony tail and took pics of this fine imitation car.
Showed that silly little man! And I then proceed to ask him about the REAL Shelby - made by Ford, originally blue and white, and prior to the mustang. I ain't no cute little Texas woman. I am a real Texas woman. Nuff Said!
Olive and I proceeded down the highway to find the lawmen at each gas station handcuffing or ticketing the Hell's Angels. Needless to say this Real Texas Woman tucked tail and ran all the way home! haha!
Now that I am home, the hummers are still humming. I tried to take a pic yesterday morning. It turned out wonderfully of the screen. What I was trying to take was about 15 hummers around my feeder with the moon in the background. The sun was just coming up. Absolutely amazing!
Night before last my bear was back. I have a bigger dumpster. He could not dump it this year. I had heard the lid being thrown back and thought that Eric my neighbor was just throwing something away. Next thing I know, Olive alarm! She is going from window to window alarming alarming! Next morning the full trash can is now half full. No trash on the ground, all compacted and all the goodies sampled. When I spoke to Eric, he saw the Bear but hated to shoot at him with the rubber bullets as my house was in the line of sight/shot. He has been give cart Blanche to shoot away!
love to all! Go make this a good day!
