Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

Time for Granddaddy's advise

If you know me you know I'm a high level A personiality with a little OCD mixed in.  Okay, if I want to know something I will ask.... after all my motto "Ask not, get not"

When I was 18 years old, married and living in a house rent free that my Granddaddy owned I butted my nose into his business.  Instead of getting mad... which he did a lot... he sat me down and said, "Patty Jean, it's time you learn that if you ask people personal questions that if they had wanted you to know they would have told you without asking and if you ask them when they don't want you to know they will lie to you."

 I smiled at him and he smiled back.  I got up and hugged him goodbye and walked about ten feet away.  I turned and said so you’re saying you don't want me to know... so that means I've got to do some digging.  That is when he got mad.  Yelled at me to get home and mind my own business.  I lived next door. hehehehe He stayed mad about a day but I knew he couldn't stay mad long because he loved Missy so much and if he got to see her he had to see me. 

Yes I got my answer to my question but it was his business.... but I just had to know.

Sometimes it just the not knowing that drives you crazy.
