Well....I did it.....I went out tot the school. I spent from 3:30-6:00 putting up bulletin board backgrounds and putting away supplies.....now my work will never end.....once I start, I never stop.

LT, I had Rainn on steroids in early summer for her fly bites. I didn't see much of a change in her either way.

TS is one of my favorite stores too! . It's quite close...about a mile! Roaddy, you'd be in trouble!! Lol

CCgirl, glad to hear things are going well for you.

Maryland, did you introduce yourself and I miss it? Stinks your weather is rainy. We've actually have had awesome weather this summer. Cool nights,50s and days 70s! Do you ride and camp with a group? Spouse? Family? Do you have a special place to camp?

Speaking of riding....My back feels way better. The slow walking and rolling of Jays gait helps. ( no cantering!!! Lol). We only rode an hour, it certainly was enough. Going to try again Friday I think!

Here's a pic from today's ride. There is a beautiful pond near us and I've been riding around it lately. My favorite place to be as a kid! Good memories!!

Have a good night!
I need a set of ear protectors just like that, can you post the email address of the shop you got them from. Bugs would look great not to mention how good I would make them look

Roadyy I really like the tug boat pics.

Hump day not so good, work has been a mess for three days now.
It's got to get better since it can't get worse.

I'm really bummed out every weekend has projected rain so I have not been camping.
Camping = Lots of riding, campfires, Crown, and cigars.
I need some good weekends or I will be forced to take off some weekdays.

Stan, I wish I could attend the cattle drive I would even bring you a horse if I could.
Any riding would be a blessing, I haven't been in three weeks this Sunday.
I think i'll buy one of the wooden horses we got for the kids many years ago. A horses head on a stick body with two wheels and a tail. No need to feed it and it did not buck.

Stan...never know if you are serious or not....but here it is.....

Crochet Fly Bonnet at Big Dee
Horse.bigdweb.com/tack/Crochet-Fly-Bonnet
Crochet Fly Veil, ... Crochet fly veil is perfect for keeping flies off the face and out of the ears while riding. Red, Blue, Green, White, Black, Gold, Peach, Purple, ...

I got purple, cause that's his 'color'. Hahaha. But I will tell you in all seriousness....the bonnet works!! Without it the deer flies attack his poll and ears. Now we can have a nice quiet ride.

This tack shop isn't too, too far from me.....far enough tho that I can only trek there every few months...... $$$$$$$

DH leaves today for his annual 'manly' weekend! Hahaha. You know what that means???? I have the WHOLE house to myself! . Although, I do have things to do....like shop for a grill for his b-day! I'm hoping Lowes assembles and delivers!

TJ glad you liked the kitty photo. That kitty is extremely loving and always hangs around my end of the barn. Please share!

We have decided to officially change Little Man's name to Houdini. He didn't get out from the spot my wife thought, but at the other end of the fence near the property line. There used to be a gate there and I stretched fence across it to block it off. He stomped it down. I put three layers of fence a 3 tposts to block it yesterday afternoon and guess who is greeting me in the tall grass by the drive this morning? I took the flash light and searched all over him to make sure there were no wounds from his escape before I left him to go back to sleep as I left for work. Guess I'll find where he got out this time after work today.

I realize just how out of shape I am after swinging that sledge hammer over my head driving those T post in the ground since I don't have a post driver, stretching the fence and dredging through all the muck with all the supplies to fix the fence. This was another day of finishing the basics of feeding, doctoring and repairs then off to the cold shower before just relaxing the rest of the day. Oh, did I mention that I met the rain on the way home and it beat me to the house. So no grass cutting again.

My dually has started acting up and I think(hope) it is just the fuel filter. Will pick one up on the way home this evening to change out and test drive to see if the skipping is gone. It shut off twice on me going home Tuesday and took a bit to get it back cranked.

Rick, it is time for a trip to Tractor Supply.

I looked up your area. At the moment, South Port is out of stock. Chipley has them.

The pics aren't showing up on my end. Did HF go ahead with the changes where you can only post pics by uploading to HF? I remember them talking about doing it.

I see the photobucket links if I quote it, but nothing comes up just looking at the post.

Looks spooky, I would love to find a few trails like that for the cooler weather when flying bombers are no longer out in full force.
