140th Chat on the Farmhouse Porch

Everyday Ruralty 

Hello! I hope everyone is enjoying spring. I want to apologize to all the lovelies who join in on chats. I am very far behind in visiting you. Boo-Hiss! I feel terrible, but I am usually keeping up with the office work around here, driving the farm truck hither and too, or driving the daughters hither and too. 
Wendell: Patrice, I want to go hither and too, too.
Patrice: Why? You have lots of nice green grass in your pasture. Why go anywhere?
Wendell: It sounds different. It soiunds like fun.
Patrice: It can often be tedious and tiring.
Wendell: Uh-oh! I better take a nap now.
Patrice: That's probably a good activity for you.
Wendell: Yes. Not to mention, I'm so big I probably would have to go hither and four- not too.
Patrice:  You spelled that wrong.  
Wendell: Okay. Heather and too. See. I can spell!
Patrice: ???


  1. Is there one person who can drive you nuts, even if they aren't doing anything in particular?
  2. When you were a small child, how did you answer the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
  3. Do you drink more sodas, iced tea, or water?
  4. My favorite flavor of iced cream is________________.
  5. Do you like to dance?
My answers:
  1. Yes. My MIL!!!
  2. I used to tell everyone that I wanted to be an ambassador. I learned early on, that it would freeze them in their tracks and they usually wouldn't ask me anything else. I'm not sure, at age seven, that I could have told you what that occupation did, but I was clever enough to silence the adults. :)
  3. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaater.
  4. Chocolate or Mint Chocolate Chip
  5. Yes, but the closest thing I get to dancing on our farm, is walking over cow patties. Okay, not classy, but I do it gracefully!
Patrice, you're silly!


  1. Hi, Patrice and Wendell.
    I enjoy answering your questions, and reading your answers.

    Have a wonderful rest of the week.

  2. Patrice, thank you for once again hosting this time of chatting on your farmhouse porch. I look forward to this portion of the week every week! It helps us to get to know one another better. I've had many readers comment about how much they enjoy reading the post from this particular time each week. Please give Wendell a lump of sugar from me!

  3. My Mamaw used to tell me not to step in the cow patties 'cause it would make my feet grow!!! ;-) HOPE the rest of your week is awesome!!!

  4. Patrice! You and Wendell crack me up! I love visiting you both each week! :)

  5. crack me up as well.My answers will be up later. I will link now though, as I will forget. Blessings

  7. Hi, Patrice! I'm bringing a cake. Is Wendell allowed to eat sweets?

  8. I did not not participate but I enjoyed the questions and answers :) Hi Patrice! :) Hi Wendell, my favorite horse! There used to be a person at work who would annoy me SIMPLY by breathing. But she's gone now! Problem solved! :) I wanted to be a vet. A teacher. A writer. A psychologist. None of that panned out though.

  9. We have had the Twist, the Mashed Potato, the Jerk. Now you have invented the Cow Patty Hop. LOL.

  10. My darling MIL can drive me a little nuts with her constant worrying. I know she loves her family, but fretting all the time doesn't help her over-all health. Thanks for hosting the fun!

  11. My MIL had dementia and drove me crazy but I could give as good as I got! Still and all, I miss her.
