    “Will Wooton get married?”

  • ? on May 7th, 2009 - 9:52am


    I hope Wooton gets married:)

  • Mercy on June 8th, 2009 - 5:12pm



  • noah on June 19th, 2009 - 8:41pm


    Yeah, I wish Wooton would get married. I really wish Victoria in “Wooing Wooton” in Vol. 49 “Sky’s the Limit” Was a christian!

  • Mercy on June 23rd, 2009 - 10:13am


    VERY NICE!!!

  • M.L on July 2nd, 2009 - 3:04pm


    yeah, noah.
    she was exactly like wootin!

  • Mercy on July 10th, 2009 - 1:14pm


    I really want to visit the real Whit’s End!

  • Lindsey S. on July 10th, 2009 - 3:17pm


    I’ve been to the Whit’s End in Colorado Springs and it’s really neat. They have a little theater where you can dress up as a character and put on a show; a restaurant that looks like the ice cream parlor at Whit’s End; and even a 20 foot slide that takes you from the top of Wooton’s house to the room where they have the airplane from ‘The Last Chance Detectives’! If anyone is going to be in Colorado Springs, I definitely recommend going to Focus on the Family. You’ll really LOVE it!!!

  • THEWALRUSMAN on July 11th, 2009 - 8:38pm


    cryan bryan dern should get married to connie and margaret faye should get married to hank murray from hold up

  • Mercy on July 23rd, 2009 - 2:33pm


    listen to the episode ‘Wooing Wooton’ to understand about Wooton not getting married & what has to happen for Wooton to get married…..

  • Mercy on July 23rd, 2009 - 2:35pm


    Margaret Faye & Hank Murry!?!?
    NOT the best match……

  • Lindsey S. on July 31st, 2009 - 1:59pm


    I totally agree with Mercy. Margaret Faye and Hank Murry would NOT work out as the best couple, or any kind of couple at all. I mean just think about it. Margaret Faye is the Mayor of Odyssey and one who lives by the law. Hank Murry? He is a criminal and one who doesn’t care what the law says. You see what I mean?

  • Mercy on August 3rd, 2009 - 10:20am


    yeah,Lindsay S……..

  • cow girl on September 3rd, 2009 - 5:12pm


    I LOVE wooton, he so funny!

  • drama on September 15th, 2009 - 12:28pm


    Hey guys what do you think about this Connie and Wooten!Their realy good friends and they understand each other see what I mean?

  • idance4jesus on January 10th, 2010 - 2:43pm


    No, Drama, Wooton & Connie would never be good together.

  • wooton fan on January 12th, 2011 - 7:12pm


    no. but Connie would not be good with Dern.

  • Jean on April 22nd, 2011 - 6:30am


    AKAIK you’ve got the awensr in one!

  • Snoopy on August 25th, 2011 - 12:49pm


    Wooton should get married to Penny Wise!

  • Stephanie on June 9th, 2012 - 4:59pm


    I agree! Wooton and Penny are adorable!

  • Yelsew on October 1st, 2012 - 7:45am

    RANDOM GUY on April 24th, 2013 – 10:29am
    Matthew 6:3-4
    Do good to please God Only.
    But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.

  • cowgirl14 on July 27th, 2016 - 4:37pm


    Hey girls!!

  • cowgirl14 on July 28th, 2016 - 10:19am


    I think this used to be a club…..but it seems to be abandoned now. Did any of you guys hear the episode where connie accidentally dies her hair the wrong colour during eugene’s class? I forget what its called, but it was funny!!

  • Skye on July 29th, 2016 - 12:36pm


    Oh, yeah I remember that episode!!

  • tia on August 1st, 2016 - 11:46am


    Me too!

  • cowgirl14 on August 2nd, 2016 - 1:27pm


    It was really funny when Eugene changed his ringtone to connie saying that he was right, too!

  • girlpower3 on August 10th, 2016 - 3:12pm


    is this the right chat place?

  • skye on August 10th, 2016 - 4:14pm


    Right chat place, Girlpower3!! 🙂

  • Anonymous on August 10th, 2016 - 7:11pm


    Yes. this is the 13-18 year old chat place:D

  • girlpower3 on August 11th, 2016 - 9:10am


    hey I’m almost 13 is that ok

  • cowgirl14 on August 11th, 2016 - 10:23am


    Do you guys ever put normal nail polish on your nails and then sparkly stuff? Like you could put white normal stuff on and then blue sparkly stuff. It looks super cool and its really easy:D

  • cowgirl14 on August 11th, 2016 - 7:19pm


    Girlpower: Ya thats fine:)

  • cowgirl14 on August 12th, 2016 - 9:36am


    what is everyone doing today?

  • sKYE on August 15th, 2016 - 6:39am


    you guys,
    I thought this was for any girl, not just teens. Just saying. Or was the missouri place for whatever girl? I’m confused. Cowgirl13, can you help me?? 🙂

  • girlpower3 on August 15th, 2016 - 10:24am


    skye ,I’m confused to.

  • Skye on August 15th, 2016 - 2:00pm


    So, is there a chat place for any girl?? Of any age???

  • cowgirl14 on August 16th, 2016 - 10:33pm


    The missouri place is fro any girls, this is just for teens:D
    So have you guys been doing anything fun lately? We have been haying t tons! Then we have wedding on saturday:)

  • Skye on August 17th, 2016 - 8:53am


    Wow, Cowgirl14, you soon busy.
    We don’t hay at all.
    Well, we kinda do. 🙂 we just let the hay be lose instead of baled. 🙂
    So, can Gisela and Emma comment on here since they are almost teens??

  • cowgirl14 on August 17th, 2016 - 2:44pm


    Oops, didn’t mean for the extra t in there!

  • cowgirl14 on August 18th, 2016 - 9:12am


    Whoever turns 13 this year can be in the club:)

  • cowgirl14 on August 18th, 2016 - 1:20pm


    Of course, its not my blog…….but I would rather just teens:D

  • Skye on August 18th, 2016 - 5:31pm


    Okay. That makes more sense. But, nobody is really at Missouri. So, I don’t have a thing against teen chat places, but what difference is it if a couple Tweens hang out with the teens? And no, I don’t want to get into a debate about this. But teens and Tweens hung out just fine at Missouri and I don’t even know why I’m writing this comment. So, I guess this is the question: how are teen and tween topics different and why can’t the two mix??(After writing a comment that I didn’t need to write) 🙂

  • Evangeline on August 19th, 2016 - 11:54am


    Hey Cowgirl14, nice chat place! Haven’t been on here in a while… What so everyone up to? I just went to the fair and got a tan! Lol. I redesigned my room, uh, I have friends coming over tmrw, do u like reading? I don’t want to sound like a book worm or a geek but what r ur fav authors?

In the ties that bind he proposes after his house burns down and they take counseling from Eva and David Parker! Then in “Taking the Plunge” she says yes while dunking him under water lol then finally in Without a hitch I am noticing on of the episodes is titled ” A Very Bassett Wedding” Now what does that tell you!

    iTunes card
    Earphones (because an extra pair is always handy!)
    Nail polish??
    A new cowgirl hat?
    Anyways I better stop, because I could go on for ages lol!

  • cowgirl14 on October 6th, 2016 - 4:05pm


    Oops, all those question marks were supposed to be emojis. Not sure why they got changed!!

  • Skye on October 10th, 2016 - 2:06pm


    No offense or anything, but I can’t stand Pave. I love Be The Change, though! It has a good message.

  • cowgirl14 on October 12th, 2016 - 10:18am


    @ blog mods, sorry to bug you but just so you know, the episode pen pal isn’t working:(

  • evangeline on October 17th, 2016 - 9:38am


    Here are some more songs!

    Open the Clouds: Unspoken
    Be Thou My Vision: Norton Hall Band

    Non Christian:

    Thumbs: Sabrina Carpenter
    Feels Like Loneliness: Sabrina Carpenter

    No I cant stand Justin Bieber! He’s so annoying no offence… no my kind of singer…
    But I like Never Forget You by Zara Larsson…

  • cowgirl14 on October 17th, 2016 - 4:44pm


    Thank you Evangeline! Ya thats also what I used to think about Justin too(actually I still pretty much do), but have you listened to those two songs? They are pretty good:).
    Oh my I like that song too! Have you ever listened to Lindsay Sterling? She is really cool. There is a song by her called “Roundtable Rival” and it doesn’t have any words.

  • cowgirl14 on October 20th, 2016 - 2:36pm
