I grew up on a ranch here. My memories and my heart will always have a home in the country.
And this week, as we drive six hours to the Guadalupe River to swim and be with family, we will once again pass this familiar landmark...the fence of boots.
My mom stopped one year and took pictures, so here they are to share with you.

Because watching TV all day is really lame.
To find the treasure, follow the clues
And play fair, or everyone will lose.
The next clue is where Mama blogs,
Is she the guiltiest of being a computer hog?
another to the bird feeder.
and even to the recycling bin in the garage. I think I had about 15 clues in all.
Culminating to the final clue,
Head to the place you get water on the floor.
A treasure awaits you, if you’ve been good.
In the place where you bath often, or at least you should.

I was reading Lane Boyz Mom's blog the other day, KooKoo For Cocoa Puffs, and she had some posts about her cats, who were apparenting starving and letting her know it...and once she bought them food, they dissed it. They're food snobs!
Anyway, this reminded me of my mom's cat, Kachi. I love cats but we can't have any in our house because my hubby's allergic to them. So, Kachi is our adopted cat...we love him when we go visit.
Kachi is weird though...in a way that all cats seem to be. If he can SEE the bottom of his bowl, he starts complaining, LOUDLY. Even if there's still food in it, just a hint of the bottom peaking through causes instant upset.
then he's back at the door ready to come back in.
I could go on and on...one of his nicknames is Alarm Kitty. He's hilarious. I laugh from afar, because I don't have to live with him...
We totally love King Kachi.

Let me say, first of all, that I never drink. Seriously. Practically NEVER. However, I was in Mexico with my husband and NO kids, at a Mexican wedding and there was tequila being passed out like it was water...and we had a huge bus to take us back to our hotel. I didn't know it at the time, but I was a goner the minute I got to that wedding.
Two years ago, our good friend John was marrying a beautiful girl in Mexico City. My Texas Homeboy was asked to be a groomsman, so we flew down there for the wedding. We left our cute boys behind because we heard children get kidnapped a lot down there.
The wedding was gorgeous and held in some 16th century chapel. It was elegant and amazing.
In fact, the rest of the night was pretty fuzzy.
Wait, I know these guys. On the left is my Texas Homeboy.
At this point I have my camera back, and this is my abstract art photo of the night...
Behold, batteries on the table!
at like 5am the next morning.
It was one helluva a wedding
