The Tequila!

Today has been great. This morning Ben came over early to drink coffee and eat breakfast with us, before he and Tony went outside to do the morning chores.

A little later, when I was outside helping Ben clean the dog pens, Jim showed up to walk our dogs and thirty minutes later, our new friends Jim, "The Mineral Man" and his sweet wife Kris showed up to walk our dogs for us and about one hour after that, Ellen and June ( today's birthday girl), arrived to walk our dogs. And our dogs loved it. "Thank you, volunteers!"

Around noon, Tony and I jumped into Buttermilk and went to Koyote Ranch to eat lunch with Jim, June, Ellen, Jim & Kris and we really enjoyed it. "June, next Friday when Lisa and Eileen are here, all of us are going to officially celebrate your birthday," I said. "And Tony and I are going to pay for your lunch."

"Sounds great," June replied. Then she proudly told us about her birthday presents, "I got an electric chainsaw and a weed eater! I can't wait to use my chainsaw and..." Then we talked about people dying and leaving multiple wills to find. But when June made the remark, "Isn't that something about poor Randy Travis, being naked and drunk," we burst out laughing at what her sister Ellen had to say about it.

"I guess the tequila made his clothes fall off, too."

After we had quit laughing at Ellen's hilarious remark, Kris tells us about buying and trying some of Kinky's Man In Black Tequila and says, "It is now my favorite tequila..."

While we were eating our lunch, we started discussing and watching the Summer Olympics, on Koyote's  big screen TV. "The only competition that I don't like is the girls ribbon dancing," I stated, right before the ribbon dancing competition began. And as we stared up at the giant television, watching girls waving their super long ribbons around, Ellen informed us that she liked ribbon dancing and had even taught ribbon dancing to some of her students, to help them improve their handwriting skills. Then I joked, "I think all of us should learn ribbon dancing and get Ellen to teach us. Then we could work up some kind of a dance routine and do a mob-flash, at the mall, in Kerrville!" And needless to say, "No one wanted to do it."

When Jim, "The Mineral Man," changed the subject and told us about his friend that is a sky-diving enthusiast. Everyone at our table took turns saying, "I would never jump out of a airplane."

Our fun lunch, with our friends aka super volunteers, ended around 1:30 and when we came back to the rescue ranch, Ben was busy spraying down the dog pens with flea and tick repellent and when he saw us, he immediately took a break, so he could eat the cheeseburger and fries that we had brought for him.

It is now beginning to rain outside, so I am fixin' to go into Outer Space with Tone, to enjoy a happy hour and I sure hope it doesn't start thundering and lightning.

Y'all have a great evening!

Nancy, in honor of Randy Travis and his naked drunken state, I think you should name the next rescue dog you get "Randy Travis", especially since you lost your first Randy about a year ago. A boy can be Randy Travis II, or if a girl, Randie Travis.

Hi Eileen! Thanks for making Tony and me laugh out loud. We'll think about it.
