Chats 88 is very late! It rhymes, too.

Everyday Ruralty
Hi, folks! I'm Wendell the wonderful. Isn't that a cute title for this post? I made it rhyme just for you. You're welcome. I've had a heck of a time getting this post up. You see, my hooves are bigger than Patrice's laptop. Each time I try to push "publish", I hit all the keys. I have resorted to holding a pen between my teeth to write this. I'm doing it as a special gift for Patrice. This week is her burpday.

We celebrate in style around here. Let me show you.
Molly and Chip gave Patrice a giant donut. It's made of hay. 
I hope Patrice will share with me.
Beau told Patrice "Happy B-day". Well, he actually
told her to get out of his face with the camera, but
I think that is cattle talk for good wishes.
The sheep ran away for the occasion. 
Then they ran back for the party. I guess sheep like cake!
The turkey buzzards came to give their good wishes.
Then they decided she wasn't that old, so they flew away.
The plants grew for her burpday. Cool! huh?
I saved the best for last! This really handsome horse wished 
her good wishes for her burpday. Isn't he wonderful?

Because of all of this, I am doing questions today. Here is what Wendell wants to know:

1.Are you enjoying spring?
2.Where would you take Patrice for her birthday, if you could spend a day together. Wendell hopes you would bring her back!
3.What's your favorite spring flower?
4.What do you do when you are going through a really stressful time?
5.What kind of birthday cake would you get for Patrice? And Wendell?

Wonder Horse's answers:
1.Yes. There is lots of green grass in my pasture.
2.To the creek on our property. It would be a pretty ride and there is green grass there that I haven't tasted yet.
3.Wendell doesn't eat flowers, but I know Patrice thinks daffy-dils are cheery.
4.I got burrs in my tail. It was very stressful. I scratched my backside on a fence post. You should try it when you're stressed. It works great.
5.Carrot cake for everyone! I think there is a cheesecake in the farmhouse. Wendell thinks cheesecake is yucky. (How does Patrice keep these numbers straight?)
I'm so happy that you visited the chat with Wendell! Now let's all sing a round of that famous birthday song to my lovely Patrice.
(to the tune of happy burpday)
Happy Burpday to my friend.
The supply of apples is almost at an end.
You have plenty of carrots,
so my melting heart will mend.

I wish you many more.
And I wish I could open the farmhouse door.
I'd help myself to food.
May your burpday be very good!

Love, Wendell the Wonder Horse

    3. Tulips - I love them!
    4. I'm retired. I try to forget stressful times :))

  14. Happy Birthday Patrice. I hope you enjoyed your day :)

  15. happy birthday Patrice popping in with wishing for YOUR day dear friend!!

  16. Have a wonderful birthday my friend -- you are certainly blessed with so many well-wishers at your place. :)

  17. 1. Are you enjoying spring? It hasn't been spring for very long here. We had about three nice days, and now they are calling for freezing temps for the weekend!

    2.Where would you take Patrice for her birthday, if you could spend a day together. Wendell hopes you would bring her back! I would love to take Patrice to one of her favorite places where we could chat over lemonade or tea.

    3.What's your favorite spring flower? Pansies and early iris.

    4.What do you do when you are going through a really stressful time? Apparently I eat more than I should and blog less than I should. Trying to fix both! Nevermind that it's 2:35 a.m. as I type this!

    5.What kind of birthday cake would you get for Patrice? And Wendell? I'm pretty partial to angelfood cake or a lemon cake my mom makes with cranberry relish frosting, but for you, Wendell, it has to be carrot cake!

    Give Patrice a big hug for me and tell her Happy Belated Birthday from her friend in Indiana!

  18. Happy Birthday...Sorry I was so late.
