He has a " POT TO P"' IN....


BORDERLINE 11 RANCH


...SEE HIS POT...:)
gotta love it. !!









More of those pretty wild flowers along this wire fence.

This wire fence leads off from the  gate posts.


...wonder if that's 8200 FLOWER POT ROAD...:>)
OR
8200 P-Pot Lane...
OR
8200 Pit Stop Ranch Road........
OR
8200 Last Chance RoadWay....

hahhaa....the list could go on and on...
got one to add to my list..??


I really wanted to meet these ranchers because I can tell they are fun people.

and see the little ROCK WALL FENCE going along  on this other side of the gate posts.......


cutest little low fence...


I took a close-up because the colors were so pretty.


 I don't remember just  where this was....
in COLORADO...
or
NEW MEXICO..

Maybe it was on the BORDER of those 2 states since the name of this magnificent
ranch is BORDERLINE 11....
ya think...??

Do You Know The Muffin Man...???

 Hello, Everybody..


The GOOD LORD has really been blessing West Texas with RAIN....♥ ♥ ♥
 However, Mr. Sweet says this much rain at this time of year is not good
for the cotton crops....
and farmers out here mostly raise COTTON.
His daddy was a cotton farmer and had the most beautiful crops, most of the time.

I love baking when it rains....wonder why that is?
My mama liked it, too...and I always had a good tasting treat
when I came home from school when it had rained all day.

So, this rainy morning, I baked...

  Have you seen this muffin mix in your grocery store and wondered if it was good?
I am going out on a limb here but....
I've never cared for MARIE CALLENDER'S products. :(
O, I know they are supposed to be healthy...but...I just don't think there's nearly enuf flavor there.

SOOO, when I saw this muffin mix, I pretty much knew right from the start that I would buy it and would ADD my own sweet things to it....that's what SEMI-HOMEMADE gals do.
The package calls for
1 egg
2 T. oil
1/2 c. milk


and...I added 
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 cap full Vanilla
a dusting of cinnamon
MORE CRANBERRIES and PECANS
because I LOVE CRANBERRIES & PECANS...


I ALSO love my little measuring cups...
and I can not, for the life of me, remember where I got them.
If I can remember, I'll post it so YOU can get some, too, if you want them.


Aren't they pretty all dressed up...
some have STARS in their eyes...
some are walking on THE WILD SIDE...
there's one in her SPRING GREEN...
♥  Sassy little muffins...♥


Mr. Sweet and I added a dot of butter while they were warm...


and, since I added all my goodies to the mix...

 they are no longer all that healthy....!!
But, boy, are they ever tasty and fun to have for a
RAINY DAY BREAKFAST.

 P.S.  I am having fun learning how to use my new blue Canon Point and Shoot camera.
All the photos in this post were taken with it and I haven't had to use
editing nearly as much as with my olden Kodak.
Believe me, I have more fun taking PICTURES of the food than preparing it. 
It's the pictures that I love so much about blogging.
xoox
