Texas Ranger: The Rest Of The Story


No one has asked why I’ve written plenty about Feathers lately and nothing at all about Texas Ranger.  For a while TR was part of the family, attending our version of the Grammys and engaging in all the other ornithological activities Porter could create.

All good things must come to an end.  TR wasn’t a particularly pleasant bird, but he, too, met his end.  His dramatic demise is recounted here.  (Click on Texas Ranger’s Last Adventure.) Grab a hankie and a fire extinguisher before reading– you’ll need both.


Three years ago in My Tiny Kingdom: The Odd Child Out (it’s interesting that this post came up now– I’m now addressing these issues with Porter in a much healthier way and hopefully will feel comfortable writing about it soon.)

    Anne, this was the most hilarious story about a funeral I’ve ever heard (and I’ve heard a few–my father is a pastor.) Thanks for the laugh!

    That was absolutely hysterical. Very well done in the mom department. I would’ve probably finished off the wine after all that.

    I just went back and reread your post on Porter. I can’t wait to hear how you’re dealing now and if things are any different. I’m struggling with something similar with my daughter. I can’t put it into words, but I could relate all too well to that post.

    Am I missing something here? I cannot get this page to show anything but 2 stories not about Texas Ranger and a few inactive link buttons.

    BTW, I’m a new reader and have read every page over the last month or two and absolutely love your writing.
