Lucas is praying for rain!!




Lucas has been praying for rain but so far it hasn't helped. It hasn't been for his lack of trying.Actually he had been swimming in his little pool and was looking up when he saw an airplane and the second one I'm not sure what he was doing but it sure looks like he is praying. I am going to go with that. Lucas is my great nephew and the baby of the family now. We are all having a ball with him. He is a doll and we all love him so much. We had a 50% chance of rain today but we got nothing. We are so worried about our pastures and livestock. I told my husband last night we have a personal relationship with our cows and it will break our heart's if we have to sell. If you look at some of my blogs you can see how much we love our cows and what good care we take of them. Richard is so worried about this dry weather. We don't have enough hay to make it through the winter and we are desperately trying to find some to buy. We live in central Missouri, if any of you are relatively close and have hay or know of some please let me know.

Miss Molly





Molly has a new bed.


Richard takes Molly for a ride.
Jake and Molly playing.
Her 4th of July scarf.
Two weeks ago on Wednesday when I was leaving for work I pulled out of our driveway and saw something little run down the side of the road. At first I couldn't tell what it was then I realized it was a little dog. When I got to her I stopped and got out of the car, she ran harder down the road. I followed her and she stopped and I got out again and called her. She took off again and turned onto a logging road and went out of sight. I called my husband and he went on the four wheeler and looked for her but didn't see her. It was 105 degrees that day and we knew with no food and especially no water she would die. That night Richard rode down that road again and he called me and said he had found her and for me to bring some food and water. My husband is such a softie, when I got there he was down on his knees talking to her and trying to coax her out of the woods. He put the food back under the bushes and in doing so got tangled up in wild rose briar's and tore his shirt. She just whined for a while but she did eat her food, I figured it would take her a few days before we could catch her but we were worried about something getting her. All of a sudden she came out and came to me and started licking me and jumping around and whining. I guess she knew we were trying to help her. Well, now she has a home and is living quite well. She has a new bed, she is the air conditioning and we are working on potty training and she has a new friend and that is Jake. For the life of me I will never ever understand how some people can be so cruel to dump a little defenseless dog or cat out where they will have no food or water to just die a horrible death. As dry as it is there isn't even any puddles to drink from. I would so like to be a judge and be able to hand out the sentences to these scum of the earth people. They would get the same treatment as they deal out!!!

I found the patriotic sheep at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago.


My sister made this for me a couple of years ago.
I am still looking for chairs for this table.
Tomorrow we will be celebrating Independence Day and here is a little of my decorating for the occasion. We will be having homemade ice cream and cake with the family, it's way too hot here to do much. We are praying for rain, our fields are looking pretty sad. We rescued a new little dog last Wednesday, someone uncaring soul dumped her out to die in this heat and dry weather. I will blog later about her but don't worry she has made herself at home here.
