The moral of greener pastures

The grass may be greener on the other side of the fence…

… but it is not always better

(or tastier).


I used my imagination to make the grass whatever color I wanted it to be. — Whoopi Goldberg

  8. Love the look!!!! Yep, once ya cross over it’s not always easy gettin’ back. You dog looks much like Tiger the Wonder Dog but I’d bet money it’s much smarter. Poor Tiger isn’t the brightest crayon in the box. Shhhhh, we won’t tell him! Heeehehehe!

    Ya’ll have a marvelously blessed weekend, ya hear???

    Gotta run…..we’re workin’ the cattle herd today!!!!
