    Famous Saying

    Born in 1896 and 1909, my grandfathers were hard-working farmers, and, in my youth, each shared with me the following famous saying…one of my favorites!

    “A farting horse never tires. A man that farts is the man to hire.”

    Poem for a Friend

    A lovely poetess and friend hailing from the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, Michele Lee Sefton has worked diligently over the past nineteen months authoring her first book – presently, being edited. I wrote this short poem in honor of her hard work, and I encourage you to visit her site to learn more!

    Waves riding the wind
    Wash her hair in the sun
    Words written with ink
    Drying now, almost done

    She’s a southwestern rock star
    A flowering desert rose
    With a tumbleweed spirit
    And a story line that flows

    So, purchase her book
    Coming soon, out for sale
    Sit back and enjoy
    Michele’s creative tale

  • A Classic Quote

    A Farting Horse

    The Work Horse

    I recall hearing this phrase from both of my grandfathers:

    A farting horse never tires. A man that farts is the man to hire.

    You might not be familiar with this saying, though may enjoy it on a variety of cool items available through my galleries at Society 6, Pixels & Redbubble.
