Play it, Jen

Every good movie has a piano player somewhere in the background--
sometimes seen, usually unseen.
Seldom really noticed.
The feeling, the very soul of a scene, is created by that person tinkering at the keys.
It has been said, "All the world's a stage."
Well then...Play it, Jen.

I'm a California Native transplanted to the Missouri Ozarks. I've learned how to chase cows in high heels and load hay faster than you can say "Coco Chanel." These are some of our pictures and stories of living in a land with breath-taking beauty and adventure around every bend.

Bark at the moon

Seth woke me up yesterday morning to ask me where there was a jar he could catch a spider in. He said he had a baby tarantula out on the front porch. I directed him to the jar then figured I'd better go check to make sure he was o.k.
I went out to find Seth standing on the porch with the jar in one hand and trying to catch Titus with the other. Apparently Titus had sniffed at the spider and it had jumped up on Titus for a ride.
Titus immediately came running for me and started rubbing against my legs and romping around. All I could think was that the spider was going to hop off of Titus and climb onto me and run up my bare leg. Gah!
We managed to get Titus to hold still long enough for Seth to collect the spider in the jar.
We have been looking at this spider for the past couple of days and we're not really sure it is a tarantula. I think it might be a wolf spider but it's awfully big. Hmmmmm.....
