Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 26- A Visit with Wendell

Guess who's in charge of the Chat this week?

How'd you guess?
That's right- I'm in charge of the Chat on the Porch. I better duck my head. The porch isn't Wendell kind of tall. Patrice isn't here. She went to... hmmm? She's at...uh. I don't remember where she went. She left in her t ruck with the leather seats. I think she should have taken me. I have a leather seat- you know, a saddle. Oh, well. She promised me that I could greet everyone and be a social kind of guy. I better practice.
  • Hi, I'm Wendell. Have a seat and I'll take those carrots from you.
  • Hi, I'm Wendell. Thank you for coming.. What did you bring for me?
  • Hi, I'm Wen. Patrice isn't here today and I'm much cuter anyway. Oh, carrots! How did you know?
  • Wendell says hello. Now lets go to the barn and chat. You chat- I'll eat. Works for me!
  • Greetings, lovely ladies. Open your purses and let me see if you have any carrots. I like peppermints, too.
This isn't working! Patriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice! Help!
You know she's not here, Wendell. Why don't you just ask the weekly questions.
I did. I asked about carrots.
Try the people questions. That might work.
You wouldn't happen to know where she went, would you?
Probably to the land of carrots to get some more.
Wow! I want to go there one day. Thanks, Chip!

  1. What's your favorite kind of chili?
  2. What do you usually do when you feel a cold coming on?
  3. Rice, potatoes, or pasta?
  4. What kind of camera do you use?
  5. Are you a night owl or an early bird?
Wendell's answers:
  1. Carrot Chili!
  2. I go to the sunny side of the barn to warm whatever is cold.
  3. Yuk! Hay, please.
  4. That's Patrice's job. I stand in front of it and pose. Repeat after me. "Isn't he a handsome horse?"
  5. I'm a Hafflinger/ Belgian cross. I'm not an owl or a bird. I think it would be cool to fly like one. Welcome to Wendell Airways... It kind of has a ring to it!
This has been fun. You must forgive me, but I see a blade of green grass and I have to beat the Percherons to it. Love ya, see ya- BYE!

Wait! Patrice always says something at the end. Hmm? I've got it!
Have a good time shopping for my carrots!


  1. It is always fun Wendall, but I am glad you don't cook for me. :) Tell Patrice to have fun.

  2. Hay there Wendell, maybe Patrice is gonna bring back some sort of fuzzy friend for you!
    I enjoyed participating in your chat!

  3. Maybe I could just keep the chili hot in a hay oven? Then you could enjoy the insulation while I enjoy the chili. Win-win.

  4. Wendall, you're SO handsome! I've got carrots...No wonder you're so handsome...great genes.
    1. Not a chili fan.
    2. I take Sambucol and drink elderberry juice to boost immune system to ward off colds. Thank God, haven't had one in ages.
    3. Yes.
    4. I have a DSLR Canon, a Canon and a Nikon DP&S. (Digital Point & Shoot)
    5. Early bird, please. I do have a barn owl in residence in the barn so we each do what we do best. Me in the mornings and s/he at night.

  5. Howdy, Wendell. I enjoyed your post. Maybe Patrice will bring you back lots of carrots. :)

    1. Simon wanted to comment because he now has his own blog but somehow my picture is showing up and he's not happy about that. He is so glad to meet Wendall and wanted him to come over for a visit.....Simon is very happy that you gave Wendall the chance to blog today........
      His site is: www.thejourneyandadventuresofsimon.blogspot.com

  7. Wendall, I am finally able to get my picture instead of hers.....I hope you will come over...I'd like to be friends.....

  8. Dear Wendell,
    1. I'm not a huge fan of chili, but I like my mom's the best.
    2. Well. I will try the vitamin and airbourne "stuff," then I head for chicken soup.
    3. Rice, not really a white fan, but it will do in a pinch. I like long grain and wild.
    4. I LOVE my Nikon D5000 with my Tamron 18-270mm lens, but do you want to know a secret? I left that big dude at home when we went to Hawaii and took my Canon G9 point and shoot instead. It did a great job AND fit into my purse!
    5. I am usually an early bird, but Wendell, after spending ten days in Hawaii with its five hour time difference, I don't know what I am.

  9. Wendell, I am so sorry to bother you but I wanted to let you know that I have moved my blog and the new address is

    I hope to see you....

  10. Don't nip at me, Wendell! I didn't know Patrice was going to be gone and leave you in charge or else I would have brought carrots. What's that? I can't join the chit-chat today! What if, I promise to bring you carrots next week? It's a deal...good! Linking my post up. Have a good day, Patrice...and Wendell!

  11. Thanks, sweet Patrice, for letting me join Wendell on the porch this week!!! ;-)
