Puttering Around East Texas

I have one of those quite placid names. It evokes no imagination, no illusions, nothing that would conjure up an interest in reading the words before you.  Thus, it became rather difficult to name my blog. I certainly want others to read what I have to say, as if I really had something to say. However, in order to do that, the name must immediately grab the reader’s attention. Therefore, it must be “unique”. I settled on rancher, writer, poet.

First, I am not a rancher; I just thought it sounded good. I am however, a writer and a poet. You, the reader, will have to decide if I can use the adjective, “good”.

Now for the hard part, this is, finding something to say on a frequent basis. Most experienced bloggers find the words to post everyday. Some even post more than once a day. As you shall see, I am a novice at posting on blogs. I am retired and write for the sheer joy of it. I offer to my readers a vast assortment of poetry, short stories, and essays. My genre includes Christian writings and humorous stories as well as current essays. My poetry features an assortment of poems ranging from the deep thought to the absolute funny. My writings are genuine, honest, and sometimes reflecting experiences from my personal life. While never pursuing the competitive arena I nevertheless continue telling my stories as a release, or perhaps an escape from the uncertainties that face each of us. Please use the selections menu above to determine your choice of posts.

    Thanks for including me in your list, Pete. I enjoyed your reminiscing over the tree house. My kids loved to climb trees, I loved to climb trees too, but we never had a tree house. and we never had any broken arms or legs.
    Saw Jen at the post office today, and wouldn’t you know it, it was the only time I have been in a hurry and couldn’t really stop to talk?!
    I may email you some things I like to write, if that’s okay with you. God bless, Jackie

    I think this is really awesome. I’ve always wanted to just sit down and read your writings. I have read some, but you have so many. Anticipation……now I can hardly wait until the next day to open up “RancherWriterPoet” to see if you’ve posted anything new. Looking forward to the next one! I love it and I especially love you.
