The “Farm” in Earlsboro

img_16053
In December I was able to pop over to OKC to meet with an electrician about the Shawnee houses and then my brothers, Rick and Russ and a friend of Rick’s, Mike went to our property in Earlsboro to walk around. Mike has set up some deer stations and a deer stand in hopes that he’ll have the opportunity to get a deer. It was interesting to hear how he set up a feeder that holds corn. He puts peanut butter on a big, plastic toggle like thing and when the deer lick it the corn falls out for them. Of course it looks like the horses that are also on the property have figured this out and helped themselves too. One of my favorite things about the farm (Not really a farm but that’s what we call it.) are the ponds. The south pond we know is fed from an underground spring. The north pond we aren’t so sure. I’ll be glad when one day Kevin and I can be there on a more regular basis and get things done that we’d like to do to the houses and the farm. So much to do, so little time, so little money! It will definitely be a labor of love.

About Moqqi

I was born in the Midwest but I have actually lived more of my life on the West Coast. I am looking forward to that day when I once again am living in the Midwest. Hopefully that will mean that I am retired and getting to live life at a bit of a slower pace! I've been married to the same guy for 36 years! We met when he was working for a semi-pro hockey team and I was selling tickets to the games. He also played hockey at an amateur and college level and I think I fell instantly in love when we went ice skating together and he saved me from crashing when someone behind me fell (I was skating backwards, he was skating forward, so we were facing each other.) and he reached out with his big, strong arms and grabbed both of my upper arms and just stopped me dead in my tracks to make sure I didn't fall over the person. My Hercules! I have two children, a son and a daughter. My son is an Registered Nurse and works in an ICU. He is married to a wonderful girl that I couldn't have hand picked better. They have produced the absolute, most cute and adorable Grandchildren that anyone could ask for! My daughter is now a Fifth Grade teacher. She has a joy and passion for teaching and loving her students that is not seen in many teachers these days. She truly found her calling. I have this blog because I thought it would be nice to have a place that I could share what is going on in our lives and I also just love to tell stories. I'm not a writer per se, but I do love a good story. Even if it's just a short little quip!
