Wer'e Having Fun Now!!!

I have been memeed in the strangest way. The question is "who would you take in your covered wagon on the Oregon Trail"?

My daughter, A Homesteading Neophyte, gave me this wonderful surprise and an interesting explanation as to why she wanted to have me on her trip. To quote her reasoning:

only because she is my mother and if I don't include her I will get a phone call "Why don't you want your mother along?" ~grin~ love ya mom. My mother has many skills that would go along with the trail, one would be catching bees so that we could travel with honey.

The bee thing is very interesting. I posted on my daughters blog when her computer was down. I wrote about my own experiences with homesteading. If you would like to read this post on bees click here.

As for whom I would like to go with me in a covered wagon on the Oregon Trail:

Desert Cat: Because, I believe he has guns to protect me and kill dinner.

Only In His Service: He can build things and repair. Oh, Yea. When that wagon wheel breaks, he will be handy.

Prairie Dreams: She gets things done.

Thoughts Along the Way
: We need someone to keep us calm.

Daily Spirit: She will be able to tell us what lies ahead.

You are SO getting a phone call.

I'm honored!

The pioneers are my favorite people in modern history, have been since I was little... could be because that's how my family got to Kansas, generations ago... their blood is still in my veins...

That's pretty funny, sis, especially that phone call bit. ;-)

My apologies I haven't been around much but I had a bad case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome when I couldn't type or use the mouse without the pain killing me. I'm better now and back to visiting and blogging.

I hope all has been well with you.

God bless, and Shalom!

I promise to take care of the bees myself. Happy, Happy that you will be there.

Indeed I do, although my hunting skills are a tad rusty.

Kat said...

Yay! I love a good adventure! I'm very flattered that you'd bring me along :)
