    I meant to welcome Rosanne and forgot in my last post. So..welcome!!!

    Ok...I keep waiting for someone to ask why Alex's pics are upside down. Am I the only one that is seeing them upside down? Have I finally lost my mind? I was so afraid it would happen one day! LOL
    The only one seeing the photos upside down i'm afraid to say is you. No you have not lost your mind, though it may be a warning sign, but lets put it down to the beginning of those, senior moments, They start in the 40s and progress in frequency. As the years tumble along there is so much to look forward to, the surgery to put back inplace what gravity has moved, the raucous laughter followed by that wet feeling, then there is the never trust a fart faze (excuse my discription please) just to name a few of the exciting things you have to look forward to along with being a little forgetfull and loosing things. It starts with the mind.

When Janice (instructor/owner of SkyView) took him out to take the pics, he even pulled her to get to me..this little boy "knows" something (Janice said "Oh! He sure does like you!") Cool. FarmChic-Sherry, your barn & the stall pics are beyond amazing, can I come clean?! (kinda like the scullery maid drooling to clean the fireplace grates in Windsor castle, just to be in the atmosphere..!)
    Have a question: my poop-clean day yesterday was in 98+ temps. Got sick (well,just dizzy/nauseous/tachycardic abit; heat related), as not used to manual labor in high temps (or anywhere,for that matter). Have admitted here being abysmally out of shape. Need to implement something real soon: have a Gazelle glider, & various hand weights (2,5,&8#). For next Monday prep, should I just get on the Gazelle for cardiovascular to start? (then get into the weights for upper body strength,& have some ideas for core strength stuff). Just not sure where to start. Am attempting to build up from ground zero, as have badly neglected my body for quite awhile. Any suggestions?

    O/K TJ its get the body back in shape time. This is the exercise regime I have recently embarked upon and its working.

    Take two 20 pound potato bags one in each hand and hold them out stretched from your sides. Hold them in that position as long as you can but its O/K to let your arms drop to your sides, then lift again.

    After a few days and if you are feeling stronger increase that to 50 pound sack and repeat the process, holding them at arms length out to your sides at shoulder height for as long as you can. By this time you will be feeling confident and much stronger so increase to 75 pound sacks.

    Its taken me 6 weeks but I am at the 100 pound sack stage. YES, you read that right. I can lift a 100 pound potato sack in each hand to shoulder height.

    Tomorrow I'm going for it so wish me luck. I'm going to put a potato in each sack.

    I have spent the day working with a particular nutbar who really gets under my skin and some of it has rubbed off on me. Tomorrow I will be better.

    TJT, did anyone warn you about Stan. I try to, if I didn't then I apologize.

    Something I do enjoy I bust on Stan or Rick, or Bruce when he was around, and I am just pinged like crazy from the ladies liking the post. They are like those gnats, and they just need knocking into tomorrow.

    I tell the foster kids all the time that I have balls I just wear them higher. I'll knock them down faster than Brad will.

    To all the newbs here, it's ok to get the men. So get em. :)

    I did wake up this morning with a horrible case of vertigo so maybe I truly have lost my mind!!! Does that mean I don't have to go to work? :)

    Can't blame it on me darlin. I had my spell with it last week. Lol

    Thanks for all the comments on Boo's injury. He shows no signs of it bothering him at all. When I was working with him and the other 3 boys on trailer loading he was the only one who wanted to run the pasture to keep from being fed to the horse eating trailer. Guess he thought the other horses just tasted bad as they were spit back out, but he tastes good and would not be spit out. Lol

    Edit to add: I finished the welding on the other trailer last night and just need to add sealant around the edges of the new metal. I pulled it over out the driveway and stuck it over by the jeep.

    Ok, here's the plan: this Monday will hold a potato in each hand (sans sack,too much weight),dunk my head in a water trough, & the resident of who's pen I'm in will come over & eat the situation! Oh,Ladona,AlexS's pics look upright to me,but since I barely know one end of a horse from the other,perhaps I should refrain from comment (oh,wait,I know..the biggest end is where all the clean-up in the pens comes from)!

    I can't see them on my laptop here at work due to her photo program being blocked. I looked at them on my phone and they are upright on there. Sorry hun, it looks like you need to be quarantined for 5-7 days until we determine the cause of your
