How many seed catalogs have arrived at your home?
We have received two so far. One is from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. I can't find the other one at the moment and do not remember where it came from.
Will you be learning to do something new this year?
I sure hope so! Right now I'm scrambling to find ways to make money from home because a job outside of the home just won't work for either of us due to health problems.
How many pairs of boots do you own?(This can include casual, dressy, hiking, farm, riding, snow, or any other kind of boot.)
I don't own any boots at all right now. I don't generally wear boots. However, years ago when
our oldest son was a baby, I had a pair of white Victorian-style ankle boots with a shortish heel. I
wrecked them climbing Stone Mountain (Georgia). They looked similar to these boots, but without buttons: Victorian Style Boots Mine had metal guides for the strings instead of buttons.
My very favorite was a pair of brown suede ankle boots that were flat. Someone gave them to me and they were most comfortable ones that I'd ever worn. They came apart and I sewed them back together on several occasions. Finally, they were just too far gone for me to put back together. That was a sad day for me! I haven't found a pair of shoes that I truly enjoy wearing since then.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner. There are decorations in the stores. Do you have anything planned for Valentine's Day?
No, not really. Any time I plan something special for romantic days (Valentine's Day, our anniversary,
etc.) something comes along to wreck the plans. We'll get to that day and see what happens.
Please tell me your favorite breeds of dogs. If you don't like dogs, tell me something about a
favorite animal. (Please. :)

Our favorite dogs have always been mutts. Shep, who was about 18 years old when she died back in 2008, was a German Shepherd/Chow mix. She was a beautiful and sweet, gentle dog. It just wasn't a good idea to mess with her when she was pregnant or to get one of the kids to squawking or laughing
hard. She'd attack if she thought they were being hurt, which my mother-in-law's current husband found out when he tickled one of the girls.

David and I had a dog named Gus back when we first got married. He was a mutt, too, but I don't know what he was mixed from. He had a very rough start of it. He was a tiny little thing. His first night being our puppy he threw up something that looked like his guts. He ended up spending that first night at the vet's office. I don't remember what was wrong, but he was okay and home the next day. The vet said he wouldn't get over 20 pounds. HA! He made it to about 60 pounds before all was said and done! He was very protective of our oldest son and wouldn't let anybody get near him except for me and David. He went hog wild the day our yard worker drove his truck through the fence right near the nursery. Mr. Freeman had a heart attack and lost control of his truck, that is why he went through our fence. He survived that heart attack that day. Gus didn't know what was going on, just that his boy was in apparent danger and he was going to protect his boy. He was a good old dog.
