Believe it or not, December is almost here once again and Christmas commercials overwhelm the tv and radio. 2011 has been very interesting as I made the move from the windy Texas Panhandle to the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee; from receiving cattle in the feedyard to studying cattle reproduction for a Master’s degree. In between were a few stops in Colorado, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma, Phoenix Airport, and Arkansas. My boots have covered a lot of ground.

I have the best followers ever on this blog. This year I reached 53,000+ views, 1,100+ comments, and 110+ subscribers. My Facebook page has 1,000+ fans and more than 2,400 Twitter followers. I had the opportunity to speak to 1,200 school-age kids in New Mexico about Agriculture and several Social Media enthusiasts at the AgChat conference in Nashville. I really never thought my simple ramblings about farm and ranch life would be appealing to others; at least enough for you to read about it.

Last year I had a Christmas boot giveaway from Langston’s Western Wear. This year one lucky follower will receive their choice of boot from Country Outfitter.
