The Ruff Farm in Kansas

IMG_2739-2My name is Debbie…I am the wife of a farmer, the mother of farmers and it appears the Meemaw of Future Farmers! I hail from the Great State/Republic of Texas, where I met Big Boss many, many years ago in college.

I love the country life and can not imagine living anywhere else.  Although I do love to travel and visit other places.

I enjoy, scrapbooking, cake decorating, genealogy, quilting, sewing, embroidery, refinishing old furniture, gardening, reading, painting/drawing, music, cooking, interior decorating and babysitting grandchildren. And I collect dolls.


The Whole Gang circa 2010

I am a born-again, Bible believing, Daughter of G-d but I’m not going to back you into a corner and throw that in anyone’s face.  Unless you ask me to!

I love learning new things and have just recently learned to French braid hair.  I know you’re impressed and well you should be.  It just took me 20 years to try it.  Thanks to YouTube!!  Amazing what you can find there!


Are these kids good-looking or WHAT?!!!

So many of my city friends are interested in farming/ranching and have no idea what really goes on in them.  And so many folks don’t understand the industry and what a crucial part farmers and ranchers play in the economy and maybe even in society.  Come along with me to see how the other half lives!

    Hi I would like to know how many of the clear pillars from wilton did you use for the frozen cake you made and were they all the same height? also were they the pillars or the spikes thank you I appreciate your help…… cynthia


    • The Queen says:

      I used both pillars and spikes and of different heights because I wanted to be able to push and pull the spikes to adjust them. I didn’t want them to be the same height, in other words. I used 5…always go for the odd number!! Happy decorating and let me know how yours turns out!!?

  15. Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Thank you!


    • The Queen says:

      WordPress has been easy to use for blogging. Haven’t done a website as such yet but have a friend who speacializes in them and might be able to help you. I know how confusing it all is as I haven’t really figured it out yet. Let me know if you need her addy!
