Inside Ricki – A Diary-ish Thing-Cattle Vacay Follow-up & Spencer Shoe Jinx

  • No dogs allowed – Tried calling the Ranch yesterday with no answer, so I decided to drop them a note and see what happens.Me: Hi there!! I am very interested in coming to visit your ranch. what is a good time to call you? Do you ever allow guests to bring their dogs along?Reply: We should be in the house after 7:30 p.m. on Monday.  I am sorry, we don’t allow outside animals. Nancy
    • So yea, I’m BEYOND BUMMED. At first I wanted to call her and explain to her why I want to bring my dog – explain her breed, that she is remote E collar trained, that if there are times where they feel its best for her to stay back, that’s cool I get it. If it’s a liability thing – they would be running a greater risk having me wouldn’t they? ….my mind wandered to the awful things that could POTENTIALLY happen to Gia there – and I freaked myself out a lil – but I still think she should be able to go.
  • Tired Ricki – I sat down to chill at about 6 last night and totally fell asleep. The only bad thing is that I woke up at 11pm. I guess my body doesn’t want more than 5 hours of sleep. I got up let the dog out and walked around the block a lil. By the time I got back inside, I had a bunch of ideas of things I could do for a couple hours before I had to get ready for work. No, no – you should sleep. So – I laid there for 2 hours thinking of the things I should/could/would be doing.
  • I was getting ready the other morning – My normal routine is : start with brushed out, towel dried hair. Tools: “Wet Brush” Hair Brush, Hair Dryer and vented roll brush. I flip my head over and dry my roots with my fingers (since my hair is getting too long) – once that is dry, I flip my hair back over, use the “wet brush” to untangle and start to dry the ends with my fingers. Once it’s dry enough, I grab the vented roll brush and pull it thru section by section. I got halfway thru the left side of my head and had made it to the front when my brush SNAPPED!! Like hardcore broke at the handle – smacking me in the face. I brought my brush so you can see how tough it is. I cant believe the force I must have been applying to make it go like that. I now need a new brush and don’t know how to get ready without one, and I think I might be a lil traumatized –  lil roll-brush shy maybe.
  • Dang Spencer – You jinxed me!!!! The white shoes  – that Gia ate and that I spent time scouring the whole internet to find another pair – white shoes!!!!! They don’t fit. Too big. You freaking called it!!!!!

  • SPOILER ALERT: One of the few things fans of “Stranger Things” complained about was the
    fact that Nancy’s friend Barb disappeared . . . and nobody seemed to care. Well, Season 2 will
    fix that.

Inside Ricki – A Diary-ish Thing – Vichyssoise

After the show I went to lunch at Brick Top. I love going out to eat with people who love to go out to eat. I tried a strange sounding soup -Vichyssoise – V-shay-swua – it was described as cold potato soup…I’ve tried cold soups before – gazpacho, cucumber, watermelon – and since it was so highly recommended – Let’s do it!! This surprised my dining partner –he said that he figured I would be more particular about food than that. See I’m not THAT diva. J

I have a hard time actually eating when having a conversation. It never fails that when it’s my turn to respond I have a mouthful of something. I choose to put the fork down – food can wait. But that might make whoever I’m eating with feel uncomfortable?

Inside Ricki – A Diary-ish Thing- Vacation on a Cattle Ranch

Last night at dinner at a little hole in the wall bar – I met the lady that writes the horoscope for Monroe County paper – the Republic times. Isn’t that cool?!? The bar was full of guys so I didn’t get the opportunity to ask her – if she is PSYCHIC!!!

Dude ranch – Ok remember how I want to take a lil vacation to burn up time before the end of the year – and since I am having a hard time finding a travel companion – I think maybe a solo vacation makes more sense – and I think I found THE MOST FABULOUS idea for a trip to take!!!!!!. OK – this seems like it’s perfect for me!!! it’s a working longhorn cattle ranch!!!

Moore Ranch in Bucklin, Kansas!!

Guests are welcome to come find out what a real longhorn cattle ranch is all about.

We are an authentic, working ranch, not a dude ranch. We invite you to come along with us for our daily work, and to try your hand at ranching.

We have horses for both experienced and novice riders, We ride almost every day and have horses for all ranges of experience. You won’t be riding “head-to-tail” down a path. Our ranch horses will be taking you over open prairie. We are usually on horseback daily, checking cattle, moving cattle, fixing fence or monitoring the range—and we’ll show you what we are looking for when we ride.

We are watching to see what types of grass the cows are eating, how much they have eaten, how much grass has re-grown and what growth stage it is in.  We are always monitoring wildlife.

If we see a lot of wildlife, we know we are taking care of the ecosystem.  If there is enough forage for the wildlife to stick around, there is enough to share with our livestock as well.

If we rope a calf out in the pasture to doctor it for pinkeye or diarrhea, you’ll probably have the opportunity to help administer medication to the animal after we have it roped.

At our branding, guests can help brand, vaccinate, or even try their hand roping and dragging a calf to the fire, as we still do that the old-fashioned way.

Guests will experience our workday as it goes and will ride right along with us as we roundup strays . You will encounter the same joys and frustrations that any ranch hand would normally encounter. Rest assured, we do not stage the day to entertain our guests—your stay here will be authentic. Everything is genuine. Often times, guests might help get a stray animal back inside the fence and help repair the fence.

If you stay a few days more, likely you will get a chance to help with chores, feeding sheep and chickens, bottle-feeding some calves, gathering eggs, and maybe catch some colts and work with them.

Moore Ranch guests are served family-style with the Moore family, part of your authentic longhorn cattle ranch experience. Guests eat their meals with our family around the family table. Nancy makes everything from scratch, and you’ll eat fresh vegetables from our garden, eggs from the hen house, some mouth-watering biscuits, and of course, longhorn beef.

After supper, when the dishes are done, we might all be around the roping dummy either practicing roping or learning to rope. Or we might just start up a campfire and enjoy an evening under the stars.

As our guest, you will be staying in a cabin which has it’s own shower, sink and toilet, with both a heater and an air-conditioner. Although the Internet and a telephone are available at the main house, BUT – there is no tv or telephone in the cabins, no wi-fi, and no cell phone reception. You will be totally free of all that the entire length of your stay! I’m not sure I could do it without WI-FI – how will I fall asleep to Netflix.

Daily ranch experiences are $175 per person, which includes home cooked meals, a cabin, horses to ride, and an experience of a life time!

Totally affordable – close-ish to STL and EXACTLY WHAT I WANT TO DO. Now – the only issue – is my GIA!! But – I think – if I ask they would totally be down with me bringing her and even letting her experience “ranching”. I am dead serious about doing this.

Inside Ricki – A Diary-ish Thing- Agility Trial this Weekend

Looks like I signed my dog, Gia up for another Agility trial this weekend. I don’t know why I chose the weekend of Boogie Nights – I love hosting at Boogie, but it messes up my sleep pretty good for the weekend. I usually end up awake for over 24 hours the Friday that I host at Boogie Nights at Hollywood Casino (every 3rd Friday of every month.

So- This weekend, Gia and I are to go to The Sports Academy in Glen Carbon – . It’s not too far – kinda up by Edwardsville. I am going to try to NOT chicken out. (Like I did last time….) But –  we have a lot going on this weekend with Trike Riot at the Chesterfield Amphitheater.

I entered Gia in Novice Jumpers and Standard Agility. The nerves are kicking in already. I will hate myself if we don’t make it.

Sunday should be much easier because I think they start with us lowly learners first and work backwards. Example – The best you can be is Master Preferred, then, Excellent Preferred, then Master Regular, Excellent Regular, Open Preferred, Open Regular, then Novice – preferred, Novice A, then Gia and I – Novice B – as in “B”ottom of the barrel. I think that I’ll feel better after practice today .

I am on the house hunt – house for rent hunt – unless I can find a sweet rent/lease to own deal. I am looking at basically West County.

I think that I would feel most at home there plus it’s close to work – but – I am not against looking in Kirkwood, Maplewood and maybe maybe Ballwin.

Just in case you were wondering – less than 1k rent per month, pet friendly, fenced yard preferred, safe neighborhood for a solo-living lady, close-ish to work.

Part of my push for this housing change– is for me to BE HAPPY where I live and not feel like I could and should have a better environment for the dog, myself, plus – my selfish need to not wear a bra for every trip to the dumpster…. I see how much I enjoy the privacy and space at my ex’s and maybe I need that for myself.

Maybe then I can start to move forward relationship-wise.

Inside Ricki – A Diary-ish Thing – Back to School Gift

Teacher Gift – Did your parents give your teachers gifts? My mom did and she would really get into it. Every year, each teacher got something special for the beginning of the year and for Christmas. Mom usually personalized it and made it super cute. Mom came on the show with us this morning to explain – that she was “padding’ for us. Thanks mom.

Maw Maw – My grandma got kicked outta the home. Maw maw is getting old – she is my only living “grandma” (technically she is my step-dads mom – so my step-grandma – but she has been around for more than half of my life –so she is my family – anywyz –  So my mom took care of Aunt (my stepdad’s sister) and Maw Maw for years – until it was too much. Now Maw Maw is supposedly a threat at the nursing home. First of all – this woman is the kindest Nina Bear EVER –  and she literally weighs 45 lbs soaking weight…but allegedly she was swearing tough enough to get kicked out of the nursing home.  Mom was distraught  – Maw Maw turns out to have a UTI (which I’ve heard can make ya a lil…unpredictable)…after spending time at the hospital– during which Mom talked her into a home 3 towns over. Bless my mom.

I’m wearing white pants today ……wonder how long that will last

Turns out that I didn’t have her number wrong – Anna is mad at me. Mom confirmed yesterday. Last week I was trying to get ahold of her to get her mailing address – and she never replied. Mom said she talked to her and told her that she was being silly. Damn. Should I stop the gift – due to dumbness??
