Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Oh, No, You Didn't

Ever have awesome plans only to have a monkey wrench thrown in them?

I had planned the most awesome posts for you both yesterday and today and, like most days, I was using J.'s phone to take pictures because my phone is always....well.....completely dead.  I don't know why, but charging my phone seems like doing laundry or clipping your toenails.  You don't do it because you want to.  With all our technology today, can't someone invent a phone that charges itself?

Anyhoo, J. and I were out and about Tuesday night with the chickens and watching them have a good old time with some leftover corn on the cob.  He grabbed Henrietta to put her in for the evening and she pooped on him.  I mean all the way down the front of his shirt and shorts.  She has never done that before.  And she wasn't particularly upset with him, so it just must have been bad timing.

The bad news?  He didn't check all his pockets before throwing everything in the washer and his brand new phone from work was in his shorts.  Oops.  A new phone and all my pics are gone *like that*.

So, until I can retake my pictures tomorrow, I can only entertain you with that picture above of a beautiful old barn taken through my windshield as I passed through Illinois on my way to Indianapolis a couple of months ago.  The dirt on the winshield even makes it a little airbrushed.  I planned it that way.  NOT.

Crankily yours,
