Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 61

Everyday Ruralty
Hello lovely people who visit my porch! I hope you've had a good week. Wendell is here with us and will be answering under my answers. We were in a store today and there were Halloween displays in one aisle and Christmas in the next. My daughter noticed that a big spooky thing was peeking over the aisle it was located in and pointed directly towards a Santa decoration. She asked me if I thought Santa would be scared.:)
I would be! I don't like scary things. I hope you enjoyed my back scratching movie yesterday. Being a star is highly over-rated. I have yet to see a limo hooked to my horse trailer. I'm still waiting for room service. Poor Wendell- no room service! What's this world coming to?

  1. Please tell me a fond autumn memory. Or tell me something interesting you're doing now that fall is here.
  2. What's your favorite kind of cheese?
  3. Have you ever been in a wedding, other than your own (if applicable)?
  4. Did you ever do anything as a child to earn money? (Lemon aid stand, crafts, mother's helper, chores, etc.)
  5. Do you wear a watch?
Our answers (Wen and me):
  1. I remember going out to a favorite picnic spot at the edge of our forest. We ate, walked around and talked. After a while we all sat down on tree stumps or logs. Within minutes, the whole family was rolling in leaves.(Hubby was still sitting on a log, but we'll forgive him. Leaves were being throw in the air, and giggles were everywhere. Fun! I remember being just a young foal when there were leaves falling from a big tree and I tried  to outrun them. I'm a very fast Wendell!
  2. I like Havarti best. I also like Gouda, Brie, and Camenbert. I will never turn down cheddar, monterey jack, mozzerella- especially the fresh kind. I like most cheeses, except blue cheese. I never got a taste for it. Horses do not eat cheese!
  3. Yes. I was a bridesmaid so  many times that they could have based a funny movie script on my experiences! No, I'm still waiting for someone to ask. Know anyone who needs a Wendell in a tux?
  4. I used to make paper flowers and go door to door in our neighborhood. The neighbors humored me and I thought I was rich! No, I had a deprived childhood (foalhood?)!
  5. I used to, but I'm SO hard on watches. After the last four I broke, I quit wearing them. Hubby would tell you that they never helped anyway, because I run on casual time. Wendell doesn't have a watch. I've been thinking of having Patrice buy me a battery run kitchen clock so I could wear it on my horse suit. Then, I'd never be late for dinner. I think a cuckoo clock mighty be fun, but it would disturb my beauty sleep. Cuckoo! Now if that little bird had a carrot, we could definitely talk about this one. Cuckoo Carrots! Yes!!!!
Have a wonderful week!


  1. Hi, Ms. Patrice...just wanted to stop by and tell you how much I appreciate the card....a little pick-me-up!! You are so precious! HOPE you have a great week!!

  2. I remember long walks in the woods when we were little. There is just something about hearing the crunch of fallen leaves under your feet. When I was six, we sat on a stump and a lizard ran across the toe of my saddle oxford. To this day, I freak...I mean TOTALLY freak out around lizards. Gives me the shivers. And Wendell, if I could invent carrot cheese, I bet you would eat that.

  3. Sorry Patrice for not linking up again but I love your questions and answers. I have a difficult time visiting all my followers as is. Poor Wendall, having a deprived foalhood. I hope that he's not scared for life the sweet guy.

    I love picking apples in the fall and my all time favorite cheese is Montagnolo, I think it's to die for, very rich though. Actually it goes real well with apples.

    The only wedding that I participated in was my own, a good thing I was there...

    As a young girl I made a small income babysitting.

    I only wear a watch when I dress up to go out rather than having to look at the time on my cell phone.
    I hope that your week is filled with nice things.


  4. This was fun! Thanks Patrice, as always. Wendell, you make me laugh! I brought you carrots!!

  5. Horseradish cheddar is my favorite cheese. I get it from a local Mennonite store.

  6. I had no idea you loved cheese. Thank you so much for doing these questions Patrice. My brain is barely keeping it together right now so it is nice to be able to do a post when I might now of done one today.
    Thank you,

  7. I can't remember to link up on Tuesdays and STILL put this up on Wednesdays. I will try next week to get it right. Sorry! :(

  8. Maybe a bride could ride Wendell to the wedding. I love that scene in "Runaway Bride"! She takes off lol. I haven't watched the movie in a while. I might have to check netflix.


  9. i like all cheeses except swiss. i think they made that movie, 27 dresses!
