The Cowboy and His Horse

Someone special stopped by the shop today...Yes I'm a working gal today and I would much rather be home but duty calls twice a week. Sloan had to come to work this morning too and by 10:30 this morning he was quite tired of being cooped up.

Well his PaPa Bob (my Dad) stopped in for a visit and Sloan quickly hands him a piece of paper and a pen and before you know it a cowboy of sorts and a horse appears. Now I admit my Dad isn't an artist with pen and paper but he has been known to create some beautiful things out of wood he has made tables, a gossip bench, earrings, and many other things for us girls and my Mom.

My Mom is the actual Artist in the family and has made lots of paintings using oils, pastels, and watercolors.

It seems like Mom and Dad have put away their woodworking and painting tools and for the last several years have been busy with their own farmlife. Dad stays busy with planting, cutting hay, taking care of the cattle and Mom does the household chores as well as tends to the garden, her beloved chicks, and does enough canning to feed the entire county.

Well it's been a long day at work but I can't complain....Sloan has been gone this afternoon to visit his great~grandma and one of his cousins and I've been whipping the Ol' Jack rug and before you know it the work day will be done and I'll be off for home to see about some farmlife of my own!

Happy Trails...Ginger
