The Architect


Visiting the Pioneer Woman in Reverse


Yesterday we had to say good bye to Ree and the ranch and head back home as much as we begged her to let us stay forever, we had to go.  It was the saddest day in my life.  These are the husbands that came so poor Marlboro Man would have some guys to converse with about what it’s like to live with women that blog.  From left to right Mike (the Country Doctor), Clay, Ree, Danny (Jenni’s husband).

Later, I’ll tell you that it was me that asked Marlboro Man no less that 1.5 million questions.  One of the questions was, “Did you just touch my butt?”.  The  other 1,499,999 had to do with ranching.


Rechelle , my famous sister, is the reason I got to go to the ranch.  She and Ree have had a bit of a blogging relationship, so Ree invited Rechelle and told her she could bring that weird sister too.  Unfortunately, when Rechelle got to the lodge and discovered that she was wearing the same necklace as Ree she became paralyzed and held her star struck pose for the next twenty four hours.  Ree ignored her the entire weekend.


Ree was an attentive host, she picked lint off  The Country Doctor’s shirt and then stuck it in her coffee, she said it enhances the flavor.  I’m sure she’ll have the step by step instructions on her cooking sight soon.  Yummy!


She had The Country Doctor check a boil on her arm.  He used one of her beautiful Wusthof knives to lance it and then he stuck it back in the drawer.  Not really.  In truth Ree was showing him her blogging wrist.  She told him it hurts everytime she blogs and he said, “Then stop blogging” then she punched him in the stomach, did some amazing ballarina moves and sang an Ethel Merman song.  The Country Doctor suggested some blogger counseling.  Not really, come on.  I have no idea what they are doing, but I’m sure it involves a prescription of some sort.


Hey Clay, what did you think of P-Dub?

Two Thumbs WAAAAY UP!


I tried to pack Ree into my suitcase and bring her home, but the skin on may face began to melt and I think it scared her a bit.  She asked nicely if I could please stop hugging her.

I cried all the way home.  It was a great weekend.
