  • Miss_Kitty Lover:

    I am not sure if you understood my blog, but apparently I offended you in some way.

    My observations are concerning the world at large, not this little blogging community.

    I have never said that I was better than anyone else, only that I was realizing what is truly important.

    life is too short to be so cutting and hateful. And we see many people who are that way simply because they have been given permission to.

    It is your option to diagree with me, but please don't pile on the insinuation that I think that I am better than you. Because I don't.

    We keep hurting each other and there is an anger that is like a wildfire in the world. My point to this blog is that we can re-think our priorities and our responses to each other.

    So if you were offended, then I apologize to you, but my intention was a commentary of what is happening in the world, not Mt Home and bloggers.

  • Thank you Graphomanic for your kind words. I appreciate all input and I hope that I can come up with things that inspire people instead of make them discouraged.


    My style of writing is not for everyone and certainly I get different interpretions of the meaning of my blogs. If it is not your cup of tea, thats okay. If you think that I am trying poke the bear and stir things up, you are mistaken.

    But Walking the Fence line is a commentary about life and if I can describe it in a way that doesn't single anyone out or creates a divide, then my goal is accomplished. If it comes off preachy at times, well, I am not perfect and I most certainly don't have a journalism degree.

    What I do have is a desire to help people see things differently and decide on a reasoned response. That include me.

    We can be a blessing or a curse to those who know us. I am working towards being a blessing. You certainly gave me a great deal to think about today. Thank you.

  • Thank you HewBet.

    It is very strange how many new names are coming out of the woodworks. They are certainly challenging us to think and to grow.

    So what does the world in general want to hear? More bad news? I think not. I am really thinking hard about something a little lighter for my next blog.

    There are just so many animals that you can write about or ranch experiences. But I will put my thinking cap on and come up with something.

    miss_kittylover. maybe you should write your own blog and what will your subject matter be? Will you be able to step gingerly over the cow patties and avoid getting your feet dirty from time to time.

    HewBet, we might not always agree about things, in fact we are total opposites, but you are in need of an outlet of some kind and I am too.

    Maybe I should write about my 2 Day pizza job.

  • Nice writing as always .....Who's the person taking the picture in your picture? :)

    Bonnie how about writing a story about 4 H ? Did any of your children raise a pig or cow to take to the fair? Or maybe when you were growing up you raised a farm animal?

    I'd even welcome a story about chickens lol !

    HewBet I hope they approve you to have a blog, I would love to read about what it was like living in Prison.... I'm sure there will be lots of questions asked :)

  • MsM:

    Unfortunately, due to circumstances, I wasn't able to put my children in 4H. We did horses when I was growing up. I did take sewing and cooking for a year each.

    My brothers had steers but by the time Bev and I got into 4H, Dad had reduced it to just horses.

    I don't know if many people realize this, but Johnny Parke and Dad built a good portion of the fairgrounds. There used to be several stalls on the end by the entrance and a horse corral for all the events.

    Dad was on the Fair Board for many years.

    HewBet. There is no explanation needed if you have turned your life around and it sounds as though you have. Not everyone has to write about politics. You could just write about your kids.


    it is actually me taking the picture. I loved the display and wanted to take a pic, so I did. Fortunately, I am only a shadow.
