NM, the picture is great. I could only imagine the effect the teachers would have on their classes after a party you organized. I'm sure it would be short lived as they all start to fall back into their old routine after a week or so of dealing with a couple of unruly kids.
Terry, don't stop giving a cookie because of my personal choices. I stopped doing it because I have 6 horses and I was getting where I would allow one of them to invade my space trying to get the cookie I was offering another horse or would attempt to run off the horse I was offering the cookie too if it were an underling.
I hadn't had them long enough to have enough ground work on all of them to respect my space regardless of what was going on. Now, when I go to the barn they all wait outside the isle and come in the hall by pecking order to stand at their stall to be let in for meals. If it's storming then they will try to bunch up in the dry area of the isle until we get all the stalls open then they'll go in them. I'll have to take a pic of them lined up between the gate to the yard and the barn where they space out for me to walk by each of them on my way to the barn. Most of the time they will fall in behind me either 2x2 or single file all the way to the barn.
Stan, glad to hear the good news of you and Bugs on the home stretch of the healing process. As for the carrot, all you had to do was ask and I'da gave you a dozen..lol I tell you how I have collected so many in such a short time. I refuse every chance to steal one. Usually within a couple of page views I'm offered several carrots for the basket. I'm convinced it is the act of not stealing that had awarded me the growth of my carrot surplus.
Ladona, sounds like you had a wonderful ride. I know those moments when you don't lose your seat or even balance for that matter really build your confidence in how far you have come.
Paintlover, that is a good looking fella. Glad you are enjoying him and hope you keep us updated with pics and info on the both of you.
Melinda, you are hereby put on notice.. You have not posted any pics of the rodeo and the cute buckle bunnies or ladies horse drill teams..
Alex, after a few more years of multi-tasking then you might
be able to gain the attribute it takes to do what we do. I understand if you have found a plateau of only being able to keep up with a certain speed of communication(slow) due to your involvement in the 30 something crowd. We take into account that they are still addicted to short versions of communication like brb, ttyl, rofl, omg and lol, but we will not give up on you just yet. Looking forward to your maturing and becoming a contributing member of this society.
