Farewell To Brian Jacques

Farewell to dear Brian Jacques and his beloved Redwall stories.
       I found out this morning from a friend that he died February 5th from a heart-attack; he was 71.
       I was sad. I really did love the wonderful, delicious tales he wove with such painted words. He's been my favorite author...I should liked to have met him.

Farewell, weaver of Redwall - your memory will live forever in the hearts of your fans.

Always Fighting,
-Han

Happy Feet

Are you happy? If not - why? Why not, is what you need to ask. Why not be happy? You've got only one life to live on this earth. Think of all the people you're in contact with - do they think you're generally a happy person? Do you smile a lot? Do you laugh? Do people love to hear you laugh? When something's up (or down...), can people tell, because you're not your "normal, happy self?"
Laugh. Try smiling. Why not? BE! HAPPY! Sure, we all have our "off" days, but for a huge part of the time, we should be happy.
We do NOT need to go through life with a frown and stone-cold face. We need to go through life beaming with smiles! Try smiling, people. Give it a chance.
Here's the challenge for the up-coming week: Operation: Happy Feet.
Remind yourself to smile. To LAUGH! Shoot...if I couldn't laugh, I'd burst!!! (And a legion of people could testify to that!)
Laugh! Laugh like you never have before!!! Call a best friend - make a joke - watch something funny. PRAY for joy.

Be joyful. Be happy. Laugh.

Always Fighting,

This, That and the Other

Life is good.
Today was warm, compared to how it's been for the past few days. I enjoyed going outside to switch the horses around, because it was windy, and I got this urge to run, so I did. I ran, I twirled, I skipped. It was simply wonderful. 
I love grabbing my horses by the halter and swinging their huge heads over, kissing their soft, soft noses. I love the way they smell. I love their thick manes and coarse winter coats.
        Right now I'm sitting here in my white and black striped shirt, my Faded Glory jeans, and eating a piece of extra sharp cheddar. We've got to go feed the horses in a few minutes - about thirty.
        Dillon is doing well. I heard some idiot in a school bus heading West yell out the window at our dog as they drove by, "Hey, lame dog!" If I had been up there, I woulda given him what's what. Dillon may not be able to use all four legs, but he's not impaired by any means.
        I love my dear friend. I was listening to a tape earlier that had us goofing off on it, and was simply laughing along. She means so much to me, and makes me smile. When I'm down, she tells me to "try smiling", and if I refuse, she says something to make me laugh. She's amazing. Don't take your friends for granted, guys and girls....
        On a random note...I have got to get up on time in the morning! I turned my CD player up loud so I'd hear it go off...but that's the bad thing about having controls. Hit a switch, and the room goes quiet again. I'd rather have an mp3 player that went off by itself mysteriously! Oh well...I don't, so I'll just have to leave my CD controls on my desk. =)

        Like I said, life is good. 


Always Fighting,

Farewell to Joan

 Joan just died a few minutes ago. We went up there to check on the chickens and she couldn't breathe right. She'd been acting poorly for the past few days. She was on the ramp and one of the chickens pushed her off, and she couldn't get up. I guess that knocked the breath out of her and she couldn't catch it after that. We brought her down to the house and she died while I was holding her.
Poor Joan. Yeah...I know it sounds ridiculous to be so upset over a chicken...I'll make it even more ridiculous: I cried. It was sad watching her not able to breathe. I'm sorry, but that's just the way it is.

Farewell Joan - you were a very funny little girl.

Saranghaeyo!

Which is "I Love You" in Korean!
Happy Valentines Day to all of you! =) I hope you're having a good day.
Dad got me some flowers from the gift shop, which was really nice; they're sitting on my desk right now. :)
      I'm really enjoying my new haircut. I had lots of fun styling it this morning.
It's so windy outside today! Nathan and I went out there earlier to switch the horses around, and I went in the chicken pen to hold Joan, (who's not doing very well; she's been sick) and I about got blown away! Poor Joan. She went to sleep in my lap while I was holding her. I don't think she'll live much longer.....:( Oh well. Farm life.

Anyway. I don't have much else to say!
Have a great Valentines Day, and tell someone "saranghaeyo"! <3

Goodbye!

Always Fighting,

-Han
