Ode to Courtney.....

OK it's been all of about ten minutes since my last blog and I have another idea to get down in writing!!!! The girls are now outside with Katie Next Door and therefore adequetly looked after by Katie Next Door's adoring Daddy (thanks Trace). So here I go......

Miss Courtney is one of my co-workers and one who, as yet, hasn't received a mention in my blogs, simply because I knew that when she did get in here it would be in a big way!!! You see Court is a lot younger than me but SO on my wavelength it's scarey, I have brought up the fact that we are twins separated at birth many times and she reminds me that I am an old mare and she's a young filly. The horse reference comes from the fact that Courtney (or Cricket as I like to call her) is a country girl through and through. She lives on a farm with hubby Kris and they have horses, cows, dogs and cats. I am pretty sure there are no chickens or pigs but she could probably get some cheap hogs what with the swine flu and all. She does buy a pig once a year and fatten it up for her step-daughter to "show", they wash it in Downy or something and then parade it in a ring, win ribbons and finally take it home and eat it. What an idylic lifestyle, I am so in awe of Courtney and her farm stuff.

She's a funny gal with an infantile sence of humor like mine, she likes to play on words like I do and she takes my silly pranks with a pinch of salt. There have only been a couple of occasions that she has felt the need to threaten to "kill me". I am a little nervous I have to say because I overheard her telling Holli today that she had taken out a mocking bird once at her mother's house..... she shot the thing.... then she probably grilled it but I don't know that that is true so don't repeat it.

I asked her today if she would "follow" my blog because I know she reads it and I aspire to have a gazillion followers just like Julochka. Well we couldn't do it because it was blocked at work so I came home and made a google account for her (there are no computers or cable tv on the farm) and now she's a follower, the idea for the blog came when I added a horses head as her picture on her profile!!! She's probably going to "kill me" again tomorrow. But then she will love me all over again when I tell her how much it means to me to now have FIVE whole followers.... only 728 to go. Courtney you're a diamond!!! a gem!!! a little gold corn cob!!!!! Now get out there and tell your friends to FOLLOW ME!!!!!
