Rick, a few years back a small house and some land next to us came up for sale pretty cheap. I could have bought it, but I didn't want to go out on a limb. I so regret that now. It would be a nice, cheap place to store some of our grown kids now.

I had to go out in the Rain this morning and get the owners horses out of the pasture. The 3 yo Filly about got the S%$t beat out of her .. GRRRR she is so Ill mannered. Between Rushing me and rearing up and turning at me and trying to kick me we had a come to Jesus meeting and almost a mud wrestling I got her so she was listening and got her stalled. Then had to go back home and clean up.
Then Off to work I went.. I was about 5 miles from work and state trooper pulled me over!! . I was not speeding so I was a bit irritated at the Cop now... he comes to my window and I ask why did you pull me over I was not speeding. The trooper is about 70 and says to give him my papers and he will tell me.........So I do as asked.

He says I made A improper lane change at the light..... I said really?
there was a dead animal in the left lane and I went around it " with my Blinker" He says. The care in front of you didn't. I say Well I guess they don't mind Skunk Guts on their Car but I don't want them on mine. He takes my info and says he'll return... OMG I am fuming by now. I was wishing about now that I had my get back stick I use with the bratty mare. HE returns 10 minutes later with a warning telling me to take it easy.. UUUUUGGGG you'd think it was Monday!

I'm leasing the place I'm in now and glad I did not buy it initially. It was winter time when we moved in and no rain so I didn't know what the property was like during heavy rain. I know now and have no desire to buy it. The other place is high and dry other than the area in the pasture I'm fencing. There are 4 ponds in that pasture and the fence I'm running has 2 ponds on either side and higher than the ground I put the posts in. That made it hard with the holes filling with water as quick as I could dig them with all the rain we've been getting.

I am hoping to set up a meeting with the owner next week and explain to her my offer to see if she is interested. May have to leave the wife at home and turn on some ole redneck charm..lol

Hi all! . Thanks! Glad everyone likes the blanket.

Feels like a Saturday to me...DH is home (works the weekend) and not going in to school(waxing floors) it feels like the weekend....which is a good feeling when I realize it's NOT!!

Had a nice ride this morning! Cool....48 degrees when I awoke! Jay was a bit gimpy at the trot again....he's due for a pedi, so I'm guessing its that. He's been fine. Hard to tell tho....we encounter lots of roots and things on the trails. This may be something we deal with on and off all his life. Oh well, I knw how it feels.

Koolio, yes I agree with trying to stay away from the negative nellies.. This woman I'm referring to has been in a bad place the last couple years. She's our title teacher, so I have to work with her. I just wish she would come to my side of education and learn about the brain research. If people keep teaching the same way year after year, and the kids don't improve....who's the slow learner???

I can deal with negativity when I prepare myself, but gosh....we still hav e time....why be that way ALL READY?? I supposedly have a squirrelly group this year....thats what she was quipping about, but I would prefer to Make that decision on my own. Kids are different with different teachers, besides, other said I would be fine....ok off my soap box.

Here is a pic of the place I spend a large part of my life.....it's not totally done yet, but you can get an idea. I teach third. Notice my dog in the center of the room. I took her with me to set up. She just laid on the rug as I cleaned and organized.

FC, I don't know about that boarder....if you are already weary....isn't that saying something? I trust very few people tho...

Koolio...I think you want that tractor more than you realize...I agree with Roaddy, bite the bullet if it won't strap you...may be the best investment you made in a while?.?.

Good luck TJ!

Critter.....ugh!

Talk later.

squate'

Well before I dig in and start reading a gazillion posts which I'll probably have to actually finish later because I've got a lesson today, I'll give you a full report on my whereabouts:

NOWHERE. I WENT NO WHERE.

And................I DID NOTHING!

I was a total slug. No exaggeration. I don't know why - perhaps the seasons are changing too quickly. Or the moon is phasing wrong. I don't know and I'm too old to give a serious hoot.

I didn't do SQUAT! (squate')

My cell phone fritzed on me, actually I cracked it riding. I swear that's what happened while riding Mr. Hop Along Crazylegs. I got off and there in my pocket where once a nice phone went in, out came an ugly cracked screen. So I was off kilter in that dept too. And BestBuy could not get it right FIVE TIMES.

So that's my excuse.

And I am not ashamed in the least. Well...maybe a little.

Hello! I hope you all had a good week. Me? I had a GREAT WEEK. And I didn't get into trouble at all. Well...only a little bit.

Glad to see you around Cynthia. Hope they finally got your phone fixed so you can see who you are calling unless you use the voice command function. Guess you have to see the screen to find that function too, eh? Lol


I had to go to a military grade phone to endure my roughien treatment of cell phones. Lol

Sorry I didn't see yours or Celeste posts ahead of mine before.

Celeste, had a similar situation when I lived in Ms. I had 7 acres and there was a 15 acre cow pasture on one side, a dirt road on the other with no one between it and the main road a half mile down and a 2 acre lot behind me with an empty single wide on it. The 2 acre lot came up on repo by the bank I used. I put in a ridiculously low bid for it and won it. 3 months later the guy who owned the 15 acres next to me(also owned 140 acres across the street) came to me asking if I wanted to buy the 15. Got it really cheap as well. I went through so much red tape to redeed all of it together it almost wasn't worth it.

Long story short is when it all sold a couple years later I was glad I went through all of the trouble. It didn't hurt that I went through all of that because I hate having neighbors who can see in any of my windows.lol It paid off being unsocial and wanting the ability to do what ever I wanted on my property with no neighbors to complain.


Lori,, are you trying to tell me you were a dirty red head morning??
