The final chapter in the thrilling family saga of one desperate woman, her swarming brood of boys, a Country Doctor and a Pond.

Last night a few hours after we carefully released about 800 baby fish into our new pond, it started to rain. It rained and rained and rained. And then about 9:00 pm it turned from rain to deluge. It deluged and deluged and deluged.

See these pipes…

When these pipes get partially submerged like they are now, water pours out of our pond through these pipes to the backside of our dam…

…and down these beautiful scrap rock falls. I decided to name these falls – “Free Fish Falls” today.

Because this is probably where all of our precious baby fish went after the deluge. They poured through the pipes, down “Free Fish Falls” and then into the swamp which today I named “Liberty Fish Swamp”.

Then the baby fish slowly find their way to the neighbor’s pond – which I hereby christen “Something For Nothing Pond”.

All of our little fishies are probably happily swimming around in “Something For Nothing Pond.” The stinking little traitors!

Pioneer Woman Exists?

May 21st, 2007

I am trying to decide if Pioneer Woman is real or not. Is it possible that this blog is manufactured to make the rest of us try harder? Have the computers taken over blogdom and created the perfect blog to try and control our minds? I know, I may sound like a paranoid schizo – but someone has to ask the hard questions. I have two critical pieces of evidence that may cause you to also have spasms of doubt about her actual existence.

1. Marlboro Man – Believe it or not Marlboro man actually lives or rather lived just up the road from me. That’s right – the real Marlboro man – the original and true Marlboro man lived out the rest of his days right here in my part of the country on a ranch outside Westmoreland. Here are some pictures of him, for those of you who have to see to believe. His name is Wayne Dunafon pictured with the black hat and the horizontal striped shirt

So clearly Pioneer woman’s “Marlboro Man” is an imposter. Do you think she knows? Should someone tell her?

2. The comments – I just cannot accept the number of comments she gets every day! I can’t wrap my pea sized brain around 89 comments – 120 comments, 1000 comments! Impossible! It is a trick. Someone is making this up. Who are these people that leave thise comments? Have you ever read them? It reminds me of one of those coaches shows after a big victory

Caller 1 – “Hey coach – great game, the team looked good,

Coach – Thanks, what is your question?

Caller – Just wanted to say great game coach – keep it up!

Coach – Thanks and now to Caller 2. Hello?

Caller 2 – Hey Coach – Great game…The team was INCREDIBLE!

Coach – Thanks, I appreciate that – do you have any questions?

Caller – 2 – You’re the greatest coach ever! Rock on dude

Coach Okay – so now lets go to caller 3

Caller 3 – Coach – YOU ROCK!!!

Coach – Wow – thanks – Question?

Caller 3 – We are going to kill everyone team in our path! Destroy them. Love the defense man. Perfect game

Coach – Yes – well we tried something new tonight…

Caller 3 – You ARE AWESOME!!!

Coach – Thanks

And so on and so forth.

I am a huge fan of her site. And I will continue to be a fan even if it turns out she doesn’t even exist.
