Hey PW... You Ever Had a Sink Full of Em???

WARNING!!!
THIS POST IS NOT FOR THE
WEAK AT HEART
OR WEAK IN THE STOMACH
PLEASE...
I'VE WARNED YOU!
IF YOU EASILY HAVE A TURNED STOMACH
OR ARE EASILY GROSSED OUT
DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!!!

There's a certain blogger whose site I visit quite frequently. O.K., to be honest, I check all sections of her blog every day. I'm sure many of you have heard of her, and I'm sure many of you also frequent her blog. She's a wonderful writer and a wonderful photographer and a very successful blogger. She's known as... The Pioneer Woman. Now that I've said her name, and you know about my life, I guess you're probably not surprised that I frequent her blog. We live somewhat similar lives. We both are married to farmers (she calls hers a rancher). We both have Border Collies (She has one. I have three). We both love photography. O.K. I guess it ends there. She's rich, and I'm not (am I jealous, of course, but I still love her). She's got children, and I don't (see parentheses above). She's a magnificent cook, and I have no clue how to behave in the kitchen. Did I mention I'm jealous? Yeah, I'm not too proud to admit that. Not only do I admire the woman, but I must admit that I idolize the woman too.

If you have visited her site, you will know that her tag line is "plowing through life in the country... one calf nut at a time". Let me tell ya - I've been reading this woman's blog for years. Why? Because I can relate. Ohhhhh... can I relate. My life may not be identical to hers, but when it comes to the cows, and a few other things, I can SO relate.

So... I've watched her photograph the counting of calf nuts. I've watched her sneak and put calf nuts on her brother-in-law's hat. I've seen many photos of calf nuts on her blog.

But...

I have to wonder...

Seriously...

Has she ever had...

A...

sink-full-of-calf-nuts???


Just Wonderin'

Cuz my sink is full of em' right now.

To tell you the complete story...
Hubs came home from working cattle this morning. I was on the phone (cell phone) with my dad when he came home. I heard him running water in our sink, but I ignored that. A little bit later, he called someone on the other phone, and I heard him say, "I've got a sink full of oysters if you want some." My dad, who could hear him, asked, "What did he just say you have a sink full of? I LOVE oysters!" I said, "Daddy, he just came in from working cattle. Basically, to put it simply, we've got a sink full of calf nuts, Dad."

My Davey-Crockett-like-dad started laughing and said, "Honey, I've been accused of having many, many weird things in my kitchen, but I can honestly say I've NEVER had a sink full of calf nuts. So, you guys have one up on me!"

Ummm, yeah, I don't think I could be a farmer's wife. Understanding he needs to do that is one thing. Having him wash them off in my kitchen sink would be a deal-breaker for me! Your a better woman than I, Misty! LOL

Adrienne,
I hear that "better woman than I", comment quite a bit from the women at work (especially about not having heat in my bathroom). LOL You see, our house has been in a constant state of construction and remodeling since we moved here in 2007. The kitchen sink is the only working sink in the house right now.

First time to see this, and it's kinda gross to look at it at first but it's fun when when take a second, third and fourth look at it. But my mom never did not have them at home. She would be the first one to puke. LOL.
