Pillow Talk! or Stephen K. Morris!

Today has been another great one. This morning Jim & Daneshu came out to see us and we had a total blast visiting with them, because they are our kind of people. If we weren't talking non-stop we were laughing. So yes, my back is still a little sore, but I am sure that it will be fine sooner than later.

At one point during our visit Kinky called me, "Nance, do y'all have a couple of spare AA batteries?"

Yes, we do. Why?"

"Because my remote control is dead..." After I told him about Daneshu & Jim being here, he invited us to come over for a visit. And his last words, on the phone, were, "And don't forget to bring the batteries."

Minutes later, Kinky and The Friedmans came out, of the Lodge, to greet us as we climbed out of their Suburban. Then we had a fun visit with Kinky, out on his back porch. And before we left he signed a book for them. Then we came back over here and visited some more.

Late this afternoon, I started packing some more stuff for my upcoming road trip, with Chet, to The Land of Enchantment. Then I took a picture of today's last stuff that I took outside, excluding my pillow and guitar, so I can temporarily store everything, inside Buttermilk, until we transfer all of it tomorrow, to the Explorer that I have rented for the trip.

That adorable pillowcase that you see in the picture was recently made and given to us, along with another matching pillowcase, by our our new friend Julia Balinsky. We met Julia and her husband, Andy, when our dear friend Ellen brought them out here, while the Kerrville Folk Festival was going on, because Ellen wanted to show them the rescue ranch and to do a little birdwatching, in The Okay Corral. 

Anyway, I love the pillowcases, because they are just way too cute. The fabrics that Julia chose, have all of these happy dogs wearing different kinds of boots, shoes and slippers, filled with bones, sticks, balls, frisbees, toys, etc. I also love the red and black polka dot ribbon and the colorful paw prints. And I can't wait to show the pillowcase to Cindy, because I know that she'll love it, too.

For several years Andy & his super talented, fiber artist wife, have rented a booth, at the Kerrville Folk Festival, where they sell her one of a kind, handmade, 100% Cotton pillowcases and the name of their store is Sleep On It. 

In fact, that night when I went to see David Crosby and gave away Tony's blue, fishing chair, is where I spotted Ellen and June hanging out at and the Sleep On It booth was swamped with paying customers. So if you want to buy some great, one-of-a-kind pillowcases, you can go to the folk festival next year or visit her website:  

Once again, our dear friend Donna Gable Hatch has written another fabulous article, in todays Kerrville Daily Times, about another one of our great friends, singer-songwriter, musician Stephen K. Morris! And tomorrow, you should be able to Google her great story, in The Kerrville Daily Times to read about Stephen.

And that's about it for tonight, because I plan to play my guitar for a little while, pack some more stuff and then sleep on it, because tomorrow is going to be a very busy day for me.

P.S. If I have time, etc. I will try to post some pictures while I am visiting Cindy, in New Mexico and I will be back, at the ranch, Wednesday evening. And back to blogging on Thursday.

Y'all have a great evening!

Well, I hope you come and visit "me" at my ranch in New Mexico... LOL Have a great trip, Nance. Send my best to Chet and can't wait to hear about your road trip when you get back!! Fay xx

Hi Fay! Guess what, Fay? You wound up losing your "ranch" because of a gambling problem. LOL!

p.s. but you are seeking professional help : )

Mari of the NoMads said...

David and I will be looking for your vehicle from our helicopters! (We do still have them, right?)

Be safe on your drive up to New Mexico (not really New and not really Mexico, as their saying goes)!

cousin nancy said...

Hi Mari! Yes, y'all still have your his and her helicopters. But y'all have retired, so you and David can spend your time flying around, in search for Yetis and Zombies. And Fay and Tony are now living in your guest house, by the pool, until they can get back on their feet. Y'all are such kind people! We'll be sure to wave to you when we see y'all! Maybe we can do lunch, in Taos? And please tell Fay and Tony that I said howdy!

Mari of the NoMads said...

Maybe we'll see you at the Taos Diner for breakfast - we hope you like red/green chile! Remember - Michael's is for tourists, Taos Diner is for us locals. :)

If you had more time, you really should eat at the Inn at Chimayo on the way up (or back down), though. Yum!

Ok, Fay and Tony know that you're thinking of them - so typically nice of you!

Give Tony our best and we'll see that rental vehicle on the highway from our helicopters soon!

cousin nancy said...

Hi Mari! Let's meet at the Taos Diner, at 2:00, on Sunday, because that is the day of Cindy's film premier, in Taos.We'll be there most of the day and night!

Mari of the NoMads said...

Nancy, if we're not there to meet you, just know that it's because David and I are hot on the trail of the latest zombie or Sasquatch!

Don't forget your antacid pills - New Mexico chile is addictive, but it can be HOT!

cousin nancy said...

Hi Mari! I hope that you bagged a zombie or at least got a picture of one! I think we saw your copters when we were driving to Taos. Y'all were tree top flying near Vern's Cheap Caskets drive thru!

Mari of the NoMads said...

Yep, that was probabl us! You gotta fly close to the ground to spot zombies! Photographing them while piloting and dodging trees is nigh near impossible, so no photos, though. :(

cousin nancy said...

Hi Mari! Don't y'all give up, because we know they are out there. Keep on keepin' on!

cousin nancy said...

P.S. Please tell Fay & Tony that I said "howdy" again.

Mari of the NoMads said...

As soon as Fay returns from her Gamblers Anonymous meeting (she is doing SO well in her recovery program!) I will give her a big Texas "howdy" from you!
