Critter, I hope your daughter is okay. It's rough when it's the kids and not us.

I wish I could take one of your kittens but when I got old, I ended up with weird allergies to their ...I don't know what...but I can't touch cats anymore. My eyeballs blow up. I've been told there are cats that are good for people with allergies but what's the point? Those are the kind you have to buy - I mean it's nice and all, but rescue is the best way to help out and get great animals too.

All my animals in my life have been rescues. Except a Red Point Siamese I HAD to have when I was younger. So beautiful and turned out quite insane. Poor George was (no doubt) inbred to the most extreme genetic margin and ended up spending most of his life way way way high up in my loft, plotting everyone's demise, poor guy. He was four pounds of pure evil.

What a beautiful foal!

And Stan, it always seems to go that way when Brad works on a car too, whatever can go wrong, does.
He's such a calm, quiet guy usually but when working on a car, if I hear him throwing his tools, I either take him a beer or leave him alone.

Hi all! Like everyone the stories.

Not much horsing around here today. Rainer got her feet done, that's about it cause my oldest sister came to town, so I like to spend as much time with her as possible.

We visited my dad. He seems well. His DW thinks he has dementia, but I think she causes it....she never, and I mean NEVER let's him finish a story. she talks WAY, WAY too much!

We are beginning to think Rainn is allergic to MSM as well as the flies. I took her off her senior formula, which included MSM for two weeks. Her skin started to clear up. I started pure MSM over a week ago....she's back to scratching herself,bald....... Ugh! the drugs again...she just is miserable without something.

Apparently my oldest nephew and his wife are back in the states visiting from South Korea and are going to visit tomorrow!! Must be the weekend for relatives!!

Stan, sorry to hear about yur car debockle.....if it makes you feel better.....ANY TIME my DH touches something turns into a cluster.....

Wild thing...I totally agree with you....animals really do try for,us...I think that is why I love them so....they are purely honest!! More than we can about most humans!

Have a good night all!!

I have taken a few minutes out from the Toyota Corolla before I dismantle it with 12gage. He could do with some exersize. What an absolute crap of a thing to work on.

My youth was spent keeping my cars going and I am good at what I can do. Also very fussy but this car is really getting to me. I will not buy another front wheel drive vehicle again. To hard to repair and to expensive to send to a garage. I have come to the conclusion that whoever wrote the workshop manual on how to remove the gearbox in the toyota Carolla was not working on the **** car I have.

And to add insult to injury The weather here has been fantastic for the past two days. Days I could have spent riding a horse, now I'm in such a bad mood I would not go near the horse.

Actually its good therapy grumbling on this thread as while writing I had the answer come to me on how to get around one of the problems I'm facing with the car. See men can do more than one task at a time.

Alex I have not reached the throw the spanner out the window yet, more likely be the Toyota.

Enjoy your riding all.

My blog you may enjoy the read. Its different.

Brad used to have a car repair shop, in the days before everything was computerized in the engine. He is beyond anal about things. I can relate to what SWMBO is going through.

I had a bad dream last night that Brad died. I woke him in the middle of the night and said I had a bad dream about him, and could I have a cuddle. He was mainly asleep but asked if he exploded while farting?

Erm what, babes?

At times they can fix a car, at other times, they are 5 years old again.

Kittens do better if you get two. That gives them somebody to play with and they are therefore more content and less destructive.

Alex, that is simply hilarious about Brad's dream. (PS - remember never to let him see your HF posts.) At least you know now what one of his biggest fears is. As a married lady I advise you to only use this information for good, not evil. Even if using for evil would be way, way more fun! I've had the dead DH dream sequence, too - really creepy.

More later, we're headed to bed. I walked lead line and horse encourager for young riders for around 4 1/2 hours today in 88% humidity and I am toast. The pony was the star of the show, he knuckled down and did his job admirably. Gentle as a butterfly with the babies and walked/trotted all over with the 9 year old. We used my TWH mare for the oldest girl, around 12, and while she didn't want to 'go' a lot of the time, she was safe as houses. I think she is so sensitive to cues that the young lady was giving her a lot of mixed signals. We had a talk with the young lady and I think she understands that, but also I just don't have an in-between kid horse that is tolerant of the little mistakes they make when they're learning. Actually, though, Windy is very tolerant - she just does her best and if the kid pulls back too much on the reins, Windy just stops. I think that is at least 1/3 of the story; it was hot and boring, another 1/3; and the young lady didn't know how to deliver strong cues yet. Still, they had a good time so all is well.

Sounds like you have good ponies Lady.

And don't worry, Brad's free to snoop whenever or if ever he wants, however he has no reason to. He knows I love him. It came out of his own mouth, so it's his to own.

And it's possible that would be his biggest fear, I've wondered sometimes if it were possible when I hear him go.

The majic weather and in the back ground a horse just waiting to be taken for a ride

The **** car that stopped me from enjoying the weather and taking the horse for a ride


And I'm still working on the **** thing. Don't by front wheel drive if you have to do your own servicing to save money They are a pain in the you know what.
