A stupendous first post

There's most probably no real need to brace yourselves for this, but just in case, go ahead. I am leaping with fervor into the world of blogging, and to be honest, I can't rightly tell you what to expect 'cause I don't really know what the heck I'm doing. I've only actually read 3 or 4 blogs in my whole internetal life, so when I finish this post... make that 5.

If I were to make rules about blogging (if there's not already rules governing this) probably number one on the list is make that first entry something so stupendous that folks are gonna step back in awe of it all. On down the road, I'm just guessing that someone is gonna go all the way back in my archives and read the very first thing I blogged about, so it oughta be a good one. Right? The best you can hope for here is coming back to read this and saying "Bless his heart".

So here's my story, such as it is. I live in very rural North Missouri with my lovely wife, 3 dogs, 3 cats, 3 sheep and a whole buncha cows. 3 didn't seem to be enough cows. I do antique furniture repair and refinishing and build quite a bit of custom furniture as well... that's quite stylish and trend setting. Ahem. We're empty nesters, got the place to ourselves, pretty much do what we want when we want to and have a pretty darn good life. We live a few miles off the farm and my Uncle and Aunt live on it and are half partners in the cattle business with us. Works out great for everyone concerned.

I probably should insert a picture of some cows that I've worked on and with. I noticed on the 3 or 4 blogs that I read prior to starting this one, pictures are quite popular.

Some cows staring at you.


It's likely that you might want to see some broken furniture as well, I don't know why you would, but I'm gonna try and cover all bases here.

Some busted chairs staring at you.


Pictures and everything, I'm almost an old pro here already. ha....

Okay, so that's the basics of my life and a stupendous first post. I guess now is when I sit back and wait for volumes of comments and such. Here goes nuthin'!

Welcome to Bloggerville, Jace! And what a stupendous first blog, complete with cows and all! I mean, sheesh, it could have been cowpies! We count our blessings here! LOL

Looking forward to hearing about things in your life. I suspect there's a story or two there! :)

Wow, it's FABULOUS! No really, it is. And when that infamous "someone" delves into your archives to read your very first "stupendous first post", I'll be the very first "stupendous first comment". It is as it should be, all is right with the world.

jenniebeth said...

Well, here's the beginning of some wit and wisdom, Jace style! I hope you also include some "furniture care" tips!

Welcome to wacky world of blog

". . . someone is gonna go all the way back in my archives and read the very first thing I blogged about . . . ." Hey, you're psychic too! You didn't mention that part--not that I saw anyway! Vicky sent me over here and I enjoyed my visit. Did you know she needs a mini cow to go with her milking stool? It needs to be small enough for an LA condo--and none of those psycho cows either! Well, on second thought, maybe a psycho cow would fit in quite well. Just don't let it know about her trips to McDonalds!

Cowguy said...

HA! I knew someone would eventually go thru the massive archives of my 7th day of blogging and check out the first post!

Hey we used to have a mini-cow, "Lucy". Sold her to some folks on an easy payment plan and had to go repossess her a year later. It ain't easy repossessing a cow.

Milk stool, eh? LOL

Thanks Kim!
