Barnyard Bash Party

Hello, Dear Ones! Welcome to the Barnyard Bash Party hostessed by our Dear Lynn at Happier Than A Pig In Mud. Make sure you pop over to her blog and you can visit the little barnyard critters all over Blogland!

Okay, welcome to Note Songs!! :)

Here you can see I have two little cows and I do believe they are taking a tiny nap.
They are actually little salt and peppers that I had when I was a little girl.
I just love these little sweet faces.

Now I have many many rabbits, you know how rabbit are! :)
But they were hopping all over the place and these are the only ones I could round up for now.

A barnyard would not be complete without the yard birds.
Now you've seen so many of mine and
here's a few more.
Again, I have many more, but I couldn't catch them.
They are such little stinkers! :)

You may not have known this, but I raise dogs.
Yes sirree, I do.
This is the big ole dog house where these little fuzzy faces stay most of the time.
Most of these little fuzzies have a mate.
They are so cute, aren't they?

Also at Note Songs Farm, I have a fish pond.
This pond is filled with very special fish.
Singing fish!
That's right...singing fish!
I do wish you could hear them, you would be amazed!! :)

I'm so glad you've come to visit me today at Note Songs Farm.
Now pop on over to Lynn's and you'll see so many more animals.
Hey, if you see any of my Roosters would you please tell them to come on back home?

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a Note Song~

Thank God I'm a Country Boy

Well life's on a farm is kinda laid back
Ain't much an old country boy like me can hack
It's early to rise early in the sack
Thank God I'm a country boy
A simple kind of life never did me no harm
Raisin' me a family and workin' on a farm
My days are all filled with an easy country charm
Thank God I'm a country boy

Well I got me a fine wife I got me old fiddle
When the sun's comin' up I got cakes on the griddle
And life ain't nothin' but a funny funny riddle
Thank God I'm a country boy

When the work's all done and the sun is settin' low
I pull out my fiddle and I rosin' up the bow
But the kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low
Thank God I'm a country boy
I'd play Sally Goodin all day if I could
But the Lord and my wife wouldn't take it very good
So I fiddle when I can and I work when I should
Thank God I'm a country boy
Well I got me a fine wife...

Well I wouldn't trade my life for diamonds or jewels
I never was one of them money hungry fools
I'd rather have my fiddle and my farmin' tools
Thank God I'm a country boy
Yeah city folks drivin' in a black limousine
A lotta sad people think that's mighty keen
Well son let me tell you exactly what I mean
Thank God I'm a country boy
Well I got me a fine wife...

Well my fiddle was my daddy's till the day he died
And he took me by the hand and held me close to his side
He said live a good life play my fiddle with pride
And thank God you're a country boy
Well my daddy taught me young how to hunt and how to whittle
He taught me how to work and play a tune on the fiddle
He taught me how to love and how to give just a little
And thank God I'm a country boy
