Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 80

Everyday Ruralty
Welcome to the porch! I really enjoy having you visit. Wendell will be with us today. He had a small problem with one of his hooves two weeks ago. Since that was addressed, he's feeling much better. He's a bit less grumpy too. I heard that, Patrice! Yes, dear. I suppose you did.
I must admit that Wendell hasn't been the only one in a muddle. I have felt like there are thick cobwebs in my head. A nice walk in the fresh air helped a lot. I suspect it is just that long time in winter. As much as  like winter, I look forward to more sun and some green in the pastures.
Welcome to any newcomers to the porch chat. We're glad you're here.
  1. Are you doing anything special for Valentine's Day?
  2. When you attend something that isn't totally casual, are you likely to wear dress pants or a dress?
  3. Do you use a regular toothbrush or one of the battery run kind?
  4. Did you have valentines in school when you were a child?
  5. If you could learn a new craft tomorrow, what would it be?
My answers:
  1. I will probably just bake something yummy for the family, as my valentine.
  2. Dress. I like dresses and skirts.
  3. I have used the power brushes before, but I have a regular toothbrush right now. I like using both at different times of the day, so I may get another power brush.
  4. Yes. We had a cardboard mailbox and kids gave each other valentines. Regretfully, my bully used it as an opportunity to humiliate me.On a more positive note, I have seen some of the older valentine cards and think the artwork is rather sweet. My mom used to make valentine cards. They were corny, but fun.
  5. I would learn to quilt. That's been one of the "gotta dos" for me for a number of years. I would also like to know how to do the metal work in jewelry making. Quilting is more likely. I think the other is quite expensive.
Patrice, I have a wish. 
What's that sweetie?
I want to have someone send me a valentine.
Aww! I didn't know you knew what that was.
But I'm a very smart horse.
Yes. I know that. You want to receive cards.
Yes. They can be the computer kind. I'm actually getting a taste for virtual carrots, so I guess online valentines would be good  too. Will you tell everybody?
Yes, dear. I will. (You heard it here, everyone. Would anybody like to post a valentine for the big guy?)

Have a wonderful week! Happy Valentine's Day on Thursday. :)


  1. I'd love to send him an actual v-day card. See my answers!

    Can you email me the address to:

    collettaskitchensink [at] yahoo [dot] com


  2. I miss wearing dresses. I can't walk in high heels anymore and if I wear a dress I love my heels. I also can't seem to find any dresses that fit me comfortably with the new styles. How horrible to be bullied at Valentine's Day. Tell Wendell if I could spend Valentine's with him, we would rent Secretariat, Black Beauty, National Velvet, The Horse Whisperer and The Man from Snowy River and watch moves and eat carrots all day. Happy Valentine's Day Wendell (and Patrice)

  3. i would love to make a valentine's day card but how? as a kid we had photoshop on our computer - i think it was called but unfortunately i don't have anything like that - this day & age.

    great questions this week. fun!! i love Valentine's Day ... so fun. ( :

  4. HOPE you (and Wendell) have a wonderful Valentine's Day, Ms. Patrice!!!

  5. Tell Wendell to be checking his (your) e-mail for his valentine!

  6. Wendell is always looking for opportunities to get carrots, even virtual ones - silly horse! Tell him, Happy V'Day & I hope his in-box is full of 'em!

  7. Thanks for another wonderful chat on the porch. Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day! And Wendell too!

  8. Happy Valentine's to you and Wendell!!!

  9. I sent you an email with a Valentine for Wendell. Hope he enjoys it! I've never really been much of a dress person. If I was in a dress, I REALLY like that dress. REALLY liked it. LOL

  10. I participated with Elizabeth on this and really wish I could knit!

  11. Oh that silly Wendell. I hope he enjoys all his Valentine's!!! Happy Valentine's Day to both of you!!!

  12. Oops...i did it again! I didn't think my link was added and accidently added it again....sorry!!
    I would love to give Wendell Valentines hugs but maybe you could do it for me!!
