Happy Birthday Wylie

Wylie is 2,556 days old.  He turned 7 today.  Happy Birthday Wylie!!!

I made his 2 layer “cake” out of elk, peas, carrots, spinach and brown rice, “frosted” with mashed potatoes.  I served it on a cherished cake stand that was my mother’s.

I love you Wylie, Happy Birthday


It’s Been A While

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but it’s like a friend you haven’t seen in a long time and you just pick up right where you left off.  Today our adventure was one of my favorite places, Lincoln County, KS.  I love the landscape and especially the limestone, be it fence post, homes or bridges. ❤ Limestone

Lincoln County has a program that recognizes all the old schools.  Here’s a couple we saw today.

Liberty School 1893-1947

Spring Valley School 1893-1953


I love goats


What a beautiful home and barn.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to fix this up?


Stone Arched Bridge


Huge old oak tree.  That’s Wylie sitting at the base of the tree.


Unique silo


Something I have NEVER seen……..A plane at the gas station!!

It’s good to be back with a post.  Hopefully I can get use to using a laptop instead of a desktop (as I no longer have a desktop because it quit!).  It’s been quite a learning experience for me.  I can get into all sorts of trouble on a laptop.  Touch the little touchpad the wrong way and things disappear!!  Touch the screen and it either grows big or small or disappears.  What do you use when you post?  And please don’t tell me you post on your phone!!!!!


6 Years Old

It just doesn’t seem possible that Wylie is 6 years old!!  I always bake him a “cake” and of course there are presents.  This year I decided to make “cupcakes”.  Following a basic meatloaf recipe, his cupcake was made of elk, carrots, and spinach.   A cupcake wouldn’t be complete without frosting.  Wylie’s frosting is plain mashed potatoes (no salt or butter).  Happy Birthday, Wylie❤️

Patiently waiting


St. Francis of Assisi


St. Francis of Assisi

Christ Cathedral at Salina was honoring St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, with a celebration of the Blessing of the Animals.  I wouldn’t miss this opportunity to present Wylie before the altar to receive blessings and for me too, so that I will be guided for his care.
