I confess to being a sucker for guys in wrangler jeans. I'm sorry but I can't help it.

I confess to revving my truck in front of guys to make them jealous. ( my truck has custom exhaust and it's LOUD. Love it. )

I confess to singing in the shower. Guilty.

I confess to trying to do the stunt tricks they do I all those old westerns on my own horses. I cannot get slapper to take off so I can do the pony express to save my life! Lol.

I confess that I almost enjoy riding bucking horses. It's such an accomplishment when you ride them out.

There is no sport like barrel racing. It requires more speed than a sprinter, more balance than a gymnast, more grace than a dancer, and a stronger team than football.

I confess that I am as tired as Roadyy is of the rain we are getting in our area.

I confess that I sent a pair of brand new boots BACK to the store because the heel started coming loose - no way it could be associated with the amount of darn rain we have (ha! I am sure that is exactly why).

I confess that I am bored to death at work and it is a busy week when I should be busy, but I am so brain dead I am on auto-pilot.

I confess I brought an air horn to work today. There is a welding supervisor who is always trying to spook people. He'll hide behind the office door when people come in and scream as they shut the door. We will see how he handles loud noises today. Haha

I confess that he has gotten very agitated with the air horn after 8-10 times of having it go off within 2 feet of his head. He agrees to stop the yelling, now if we can just fix him with his habit of throwing pieces of soap stone.

Maybe a reason to bring in my M4 assault air rifle. It shoots in semi and full auto at 460 fps, holds 300 rounds of 12oz plastic BBs. I think it will get his attention quickly. My concern is the consequences of bringing any type of gun on the premises.

I confess that I wish I was at Roady's workplace!

I confess that today is the first day that I have done any form of work for resume ration since I retired. Feels good!

The only reason I haven't been doing anything is because my ancient mother is not so well and cannot be left on her own to long. That takes up a lot of the day.
Poor old girl will be 93 in September, nothing works, her eyes have all but failed, her hearing is not a lot better and she refuses to wear a hearing aid. The only thing that is working is her sense of humour. Even when really poorly and the medics came to take her to hospital, when they knocked on the door she told them they could only come in of they were good looking!

She took a fall and when I put her upright on her feet she nearly went down again because she was laughing and calling herself a silly fool.

Guess age cannot knock all the stuffing out of some.

I think I would enjoy a weekend with your mum. I bet I would get some great ideas from her.

Both mum and her mum were great practical jokers.
Gran lived with us for several years, she was best part blind and deaf.
One evening I came home from work and was eating my supper. Gran was drying the dishes and wiped the table with a rather wet cloth. I got some of the water on my hand and flicked her with it. She just went back to doing the dishes and then squeezed the wet cloth over my head.
I retaliated with a small amount of water from a glass.
She was giggling. I was eating, next thing I know she has emptied best part of the dish water over my head.
We were both laughing out loud and when she settled she said we should blame the dogs for upsetting their water dish.

Gran ran a guest house and it was nothing for the visitors to find their night clothes stitched up or and apple pie bed,, all arts went on there with silly jokes. Funny thing was that the visitors kept returning year after year and then their children returned with their families.

Guess I need to drain the pond between us so I can come visit. Sounds like it would be a hoot.

I have sprayed the wife and kids through the screens on the windows with the water hose.

I to confess to being a little on the fun side when it came to water. We had two stories between the ground and entrance way and as the kids came to the door I was not above emptying a pot of water over them. But one had to watch out for payback. Teenagers can have a mean streak in them.
