    I got some of my tack up to the house that needs oiling/cleaning/assembling. I will try to take some pictures as I have some really nice old tack that some of you might enjoy seeing. Some of my stuff got wet, there is some damage, but I hope I can reclaim most of it. It will keep me busy for awhile. I so regret leaving behind some of the things I loved-especially my Peruvian saddle etc..

    Stan, sounds like you've found a good match, I hope the sale works out.

    Rick, I am glad that she turned herself in. And jail time should clean her up. Hopefully it will be the wake up call that she needs.
    Sparky the older man that Ran the other side of the barn " dry lots" passed
    He found out he had cancer 6 weeks ago and he went fast. He was very sick. He is the one that jumped me "with words" right before I took over the barn, We had made our peace and I feel so bad for his family.
    HE was a very good man.

    Well the only one I really see is his son John. He has been "drunk" for a few weeks. I told him I am here for him and he took that as I would come hang out and Drink with him.. I had to try to smooth that over as No I wont do that but if you need anything else I am here.
    How do you handle something like that?

    He thought you were offering something else, not drinks. Me thinks... That is something you have to let smooth itself out over time when he accepts the fact that he will not be getting funeral sex from you. I don't know about most of you, but when I was single those always produced long nights of company. Anyways, it sounds like he was thinking that was what was in store for him if you went out drinking with him. Be careful how he interprets "Anything else".

    Glad you said no and hope he respects you the way you deserve for saying no to that set up. Hopefully he will see you as you meant for him to and lean on you for the right reason if needed.

    Of course I could be way off on my radar and this was just me reminiscing about a time long past.

    Hi all!

    Been peaking in...but either rushing out the door, or too tired to post.n I will try to remember what I read.

    CCG, you can back bread for me anytime!!

    Critter...I agree, that guy wanted 'feel sorry for me sex'

    Roaddy, I was thinking the same as you....that girl needs a little time in the slammer to refocus her life. Hopefully she is able to see the light while in lock up. What a Shame.....

    Well tomorrow is our inservice. I spent the last two morning riding and just 'being' with the horses. I'm a bit sad that my morning time with them is over....but I am excited to start a fresh new year!

    My morning rides have been nice. I have noticed Jay is a bit tippy toey (tender) lately. I decided to start him on MSM. I have a lot left from Rainn. I just feel like he has been used and abused in his former life, and he is uncomfortable the majority of the time. He gives me whatever I ask for, and he isn't gimpy at the trot....it's just the 'feeling' I get, and the look in his eye.. It breaks my heart. So it's a nice anti inflammatory and I saw a HUGE, significant change In rainn when she was on it. (Unfortunately she also,lost her hair!!). Hoping he won't have that reaction!! I will keep you posted.

    Working on a possible trip to the mountains to ride with some horse friends. They have a camp near us. That is how we met. I told them I was tying to find a truck and trailer to bring a jay up. They offered to possibly take him for me if my plans fell thru, which they did, so now I'm waiting. That same weekend is a big memorial ride for a cowboy who used to let me rode his horse...so it would be fun! Keep your fingers crossed.

    TJ, wow! Scary to find that lady. I don't know if I could,do that....bravo for you working with that crowd. Older people ( no offense stan) can be so stuck in their ways. Speaking only from my experience with grandparents and aging parents. Lol. DH works in the hospital and the majority of his patients are elderly....he's always complaining about them. you have to have a TON of patients!!

    Alex, thanks for the explanation..VERY interesting.!! Good luck!

    Koolio, best wishes,on that curriculum.. I'm one of those wierd people who LOVES developing curriculum!! I have a lot o jealousy going on here too...horses, dogs, kitties....and now,there's one goat that seems to be attracted to me!! they crack me up...and they are SO bad!! I forgot to shut the gate again...and they somehow found me in the horse pasture and snuck up on me. I turn around and there are 5 goats staring at me. you can't help but giggle.

    Well, I better try to lay down And fall asleep...my system is off. Least I'm used to getting up at 6:00. 5:30 won't be so bad.....

    Good night all!

    Oh, here is a pic of rainn last night. I felt like she was being left out, so I took her and the dog for a walk. Both horses aren't too sure of the pigs. Is there a reason do,you think?

    Read thru from 1254; quite alot,everyone is busy & has alot of stuff! Me too..

    Hope Stella finds her perfect home soon for Stan,glad (giggle) I'm not the only happy-scrounger around,looking forward to my next "magic horse breath" (thanks Koolio,have adopted the phrse),Lori, my story of a related drunk guy-wanting-to-drink w/me after death of girlfriend: Rick's right. I had "not going there" vibes, & didn't. My "sensitive" inclination was to listen,his was something else,& I just knew that. He just had to go & deal..knew he was trying to use grief to cross some boundary that I wouldn't allow.

    CCG: would you be willing to post your recipe for the Depression Bread? It sounds interesting & easy!!

    Nicker: if you have many more goat episodes, I may choke from laughter. Am a very visual person, I can see their big beady eyes lookin' @ me...I'd rather try to herd a cat.

    All that were concerned: I learned today (from a coordinator from the hospital), that the little lady w/the horrid fall yesterday had surgery (hip & face am thinkin',he couldn't tell me details [didn't ask him] because of HIPA law), but will pull thru. TG. The building rep (ea bldg has a rep that takes care of stuff in their bldg) came up to me late yesterday; I did ask him to talk to the sister; something needs to be done re the blood all around the apartment before she comes home (will likely be in rehab for awhile). Isn't my "job" to have that concern, but...there it is.

    Talked for over an hr w/my boss today. Told him I'd put in the resume for ("Community Nazi" I.e Covenant Officer),but uneasy about it. He then expanded on his idea he's had of creating a position,expressly for me, as a coordinator/go-fer/arranger/dispatcher of calls etc etc. Won't go into details; this is in his head (something he needs desperately,that the incoming Assistant Chief needs [present retiring in June], & something that's right up my alley. He needs to format the thing to be presented to the Director, which is also contingent on hiring another officer...which can't be done 'till new fiscal year in April. I've already begun to draw up my to-do lists, & have many ideas. Please cross fingers for future. I can do another winter out on the road w/the present job...if have some hope.

    Is it time for "magic horse breath" yet?!
