Today is my birthday and we are stuck in the house due to 12"(and still more falling) of the first snow storm of the season. Oh well, we will dig out tomorrow and see whats happening in the world. Today I'm 52 and don't feel a year over 80. Thanks for visiting Moonpie. In three weeks Rick and I will celebrate the first anniversary of "The Moonpie Chronicles."

Cornhuskers are a breed unto themselves. Only walking upright for the last 250 years, these creatures should be watched very carefully. Tom Powell, pictured on the right, was taken for a walk by a trained professional (don't try this at home) so he could fish for food. This creature was able to amass 35 pounds of fish without rod and reel. He simply shouted at the water and the fish died of a heart attack and floated to the surface. Last seen in Texas, Tom has completed his ABC's and learned to count to ten. "He's a dear friend and I'm glad he is getting the help he needs out at the ranch," said old friend Vance Deniston. "Tom and I were both born in Nebraska and we formed a kin-ship while living in New Mexico in the 70's," Vance continued. "I miss the 'ol chap."
