“Feral ~ from feminine of ferus wild: having escaped from domestication and become wild…”


Non-similiar pentagonical items for that day of the week before Saturday and following Thursday

Or in other words -  "Random Five Friday." 
at Nancy's place - Rural Journal!

Yes. I have not blogged since FEBRUARY 

I most likely will indeed burn in blogger's hell or sit in bloggers purgatory for it 
at some point in my life.

Like now.

How about now? 

Since I haven't figured out what blogger's hell is yet 

(Writer's block? Making bad puns? Downloading the same photos for the fifth time?!)

 This is what I have been doing instead -


Finding good uses for tequila bottles. 

The 2012 fire cleanup crew 
needed this.

Medicinal purposes.

Now they are fulfilling a different kind of medicinal need.

Body wash, soap, Epsom salts.

And mouthwash.

Its a lot of fun to swig out of the bottle every night.

Side note -  you know when it's bad when your Mr. Foresterman,

who really doesn't partake, 

was looking for a State of Montana liquor store on your behalf

(yes, there are such stores & that is just another thing that makes this State great)

because he recognized it as 


Such a good man.


Cows are popping out babies everywhere.


This little one  gave me the side-eye the other day

"Pfft, think I look good now? Wait until I'm at shipping weight..."


"Mama, what's shipping weight?"


When not timber cruising 

I am designing decorative brick pillars for below our deck.


No more cleaning up after the fire, now I get to LANDSCAPE.


I have callouses on my callouses and bruises in the weirdest places.

Who'd have thunk that brick could be so entertaining?

In Montana, we don't play with Legos.

no sirree.


We play with the real thing.



We took time out to visit the granddog In Wisconsin.

He is the smartest and cutest granddog 
we think
in the world.

Look at him teach his dad how to walk along side of him 
while he plays on the tee-totter!

Isn't he the smartest cookie dog ever?

Rangerdog came with us,
but he was like

"oh hella no."

when we showed him the obstacle course at the Doggy Park.

I think timber cruising is going to his head.

"who needs a tee-totter when you got logs with rabbits under them?"


For the very first time,

I got to make a floral arrangement

since the daughter's wedding of 2012.


It is grand and in your face.

Why wouldn't it be?

Its conception waited a looooong time.

It takes up 3/4's of this corner. 

"Poke your Eye out" Floral Arrangements

by feral woman.


I am the crappiest selfie photographer


You'd think I have something grossly wrong with me


I seem to cut off portions of my face, body, etc.


I can't even get my horse

who weighs 1100 lbs

into the frame.

No wonder I have the minimum amount required for friends on Facebook.





  1. Minimum amount? There is absolutely nothing minimal about you at any time.

  2. It's good to hear from you again! Lovely bricks!

  3. Hi! Welcome back! I didn't even know they had obstacle courses in doggy parks! -Jenn

  4. Hey, welcome back! I was beginning to think you were done blogging! Rangerdog is pretty smart. We have electric fences also, but they don't work. Fortunately, the horses and Jack have been fooled into believing they do...so they politely break out in other places of the fence that don't have electricity pulsing through.

  5. I might see you in Blogger Hell for failure to post! Such is life! But, as always, it was fun to read your post and to see what you have been up to... besides emptying the bottles so you can put them to use in wonderful, colorful ways!

  6. Well, hey there stranger! Nice arrangment of bricks, bottles and flowers :-) Glad all is well...

  7. Great post......Ranger is NO dummy, flowers and you are great also!!

  8. Hey, girly! Glad to hear from you, we've missed you. I'm right there with you in that blogger purgatory. I love reading them all but its work for me to get a new post up, even though I want to. Enjoy the summer.

  9. It is certainly wonderful, albeit a bit dizzying to have you back.

  10. G.W. Feral Woman,

    Love your brick pillar! I would rather play with bricks then Lego's any time.
    Your dog is very smart not wanting to walk on the tee totter :-)
    The poke you in the eye flower arrangement looks lovely in the corner. Great job!!!

  11. I purposely try to cut parts off my body in selfies :-o.

  12. Man! I was already afraid you'd been send to blogger hell for not posting enough cute critter photos. The blog world NEEDs those. Glad to see some baby calf and acrobatic pups got you out and back to posting. Love your medicine bottles and your gi-normous beautific flowers. Hooray for killer bricks and landscaping. LOL at the selfie. My kinda phone photos. Cheers from your neighbor down south.

  13. You mean, you actually get tequila AND that awesome-sauce bottle all at the same time? OMG, I am tempted to move up there just for that. Love the arrangement - it is beautiful. I've missed you, too, but know that you'll keep us up to date in your best feral way.

  14. BEST TITLE ever you writer you:) LOVE THE BOTTLES I will not ask more about how long. I love Inger's comment she is a wise one you know. Eileen another good one:) I LOVE your horse selfie:) Oh yeah, I got nothing more to add to these bunch of fantastic comments. Hope to see you back here before let us say September:) Missed you. Purgatory.....really? Your brain is a beautiful wonder like one of the seven wonders of the world ones you know:) xo Hug B
