    I have dogs, so Mike won't sit on my furniture, unless it's a wooden dining room chair, as he might get hair on him. It's awkward, and if he didn't treat my Mum like a Queen, I might kill him.

    So between now and Tues, I will be mostly cleaning. And then from Tues on, I'll probably be mostly gone for two weeks.

    If I do check in, I won't be catching up on posts, as that will take some time. So just letting you know, I will be alive and well. :)
    Will Brad survive or do a Stan. My previous marrage my inlaws were English. Not knocking you Alex, but they treated me like I was just a colonial. Looked down upon. I owned a commercial fishing boat at that time and they asked if I would shout them a trip back home. (England) I Jumped at the chance and offered to pay first class air travel with the understanding that it was one way only, no return ticket. Some don't like my sence of humour

    They did not take me up on my offer. The air got decidedly chilly so I decided to go on an extended fishing trip, three weeks away, calling into port every 5 or 6 days and then sailed again. When I returned they had returned to their home. I just could not get on with them no matter how hard I tried. Believe it or not, I did try. Fishing was good though. Air stayed cool for long time. But you know me, I don't mind the silent treatment. **** divorce was expensive.

    Grandma's boyfriend






    A 5-year-old boy went to visit his grandmother one day.

    Playing with his toys in her bedroom while grandma was dusting, he looked up and said, 'Grandma, how come you don't have a boyfriend now that Grandpa went to heaven?'


    Grandma replied, 'Honey, my TV is my boyfriend. I can sit in my bedroom and watch it all day long. The religious programs make me feel good and the comedies make me laugh... I'm happy with my TV as my boyfriend.'




    Grandma turned on the TV, and the reception was terrible. She started adjusting the knobs, trying to get the picture in focus. Frustrated, she started hitting the backside of the TV hoping to fix the problem.





    The little boy heard the doorbell ring, so he hurried to open the door and there stood Grandma's minister. The minister said, 'Hello son, is your Grandma home?'




    The little boy replied, 'Yeah, she's in the bedroom bangin' her boyfriend.'

    The minister fainted.



    TJ you asked for it

    DAILY THOUGHT:
    SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES - NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS.

    That's the one that keeps me going when the nutbars get to be to much.

    Do enjoy yourself with your Mum -- I can't imagine not seeing each other for that long. And, LOL, I really think I'd invest in a kit of cleaning supplies and mops and put a bow on it and give it to Mike, just for his very own special self to use while he has free time!
    I think Bruce (Sereno) is gone permanently.
    We should privately message info about how to stay in contact on FB, if you are there.

    My parents won't do a Stan, I am the girl, it's all on me. So pressure!!! Brad took Monday off to clear up the leave of them coming the next day.

    Tj, hope all goes well with the pony ride after you get the stink washed off. Maybe it will help relieve some of the frustration related to working with people.

    NM71, she is a great looking horse and should serve you well. She has a lot of training that should come in handy in touchy situations on the trail. I'm not sure if you have ever been on a reining horse before so I will say to practice it some with her before going on the trail. You could inadvertently send her into a spin landing you a few feet lower than you were. I've known a few riders that had this happen and they were pretty fair riders. Try to take pics of as many of the horses he has for us to enjoy..

    Alex, you will be missed while you are away and hope this place is still standing when you get back. Enjoy mum and tell her we all said hello.

    Thanks for the 'sex' advice all! I am going to look at the mare @noon!!!


    I am both excited and nervous. As you know, I have been waiting a while to look at this kids horses....and buying a horse is BIG investment! It's like finding you DH or DW....hard work!!

    Any last minute advice? I keep telling myself to listen to my gut...it will tell me right away if she's right....pray that I can tell the difference between my heart, head and gut when the time comes!!

    I think you will be fine. You were able to check out a few things on the last horse that gave you more insight which caused you to back away. You really liked that horse too, remember?

    These horses are leaps and bounds above what that horse was, but the principals are the same when looking them over no matter what horse it is.

    NM- I like how Chic looks too Sounds like a good horse. The only concern I have are the words "she'll spin" -LOL- just make sure you spin with her!
    The last horse I bought we traveled about 12 hours to see, I spent all of one day and half of the next there making sure I wanted to bring him home. I'm sure they were real sick of me and my family!
