    Alex - cool that you ride bikes too. The SV is a nice machine. I ride a dual sport (BMW 650gs twin). It sounds like the new kid is settling in but craves lots of attention. Hopefully school will give him a little extra mental stimulation. My guess its that he's really smart! Hopefully you and school can channel his energy and intelligence to do some great things!

    Stan - your post about boob exercises made me think of an episode of The Gong Show I watched when I was a kid (loooong time ago) where a group of shirtless old guys did an act where they lifted their pectoral muscles alternately to a musical tune. I never could figure out how you guys can do that. LOL!

    Unfortunately, I cannot offer anything on the bouncing boob issue as my training bra still does the trick...

    Roadyy - your fence is looking good! The horses must be loving it. To answer your question, Koolio is my horses name. He is registered as Kool Rain and came with the name Koolio. At first, I hated it, but he's such a suave (and a little vain) gentleman with the ladies I started calling him Koolio Julio (after Julio Iglesias), and I guess Koolio just stuck.

    It looks like rain today and I'm off to school this morning to get keys for my new classroom and start settling in. Now I really feel summer is over and I must truly get my head back into work. I am looking forward to meeting a new group of kids and getting back to a routine. I have also missed the energy that being in a school brings and hope it will be a great year.

    Have a fantastic day everyone!

    It is a bitless rope halter! I met this trainer at a horse expo (Scott Purdum) and he makes and sells these. They are a basic rope halter that has rings to hooks reins to. I love them! I have a neon green one and a bright blue one.

    Here is the website:

    Advantage Horsemanship

    Being a retired polo pony, Isabella tends to grab onto a bit and run with it. She respects the rope halter so much better. I have been able to stop one of her spooky bolts in two or three strides! Won't ever ride her in a bit again.

    Now, hubby bought one for his TWH and he hates it. Scuffy does not respect it at all and hubby doesn't feel like he has as much control. So, different strokes, for different folks!

    Koolio, big OUCH!! Im going to venture a guess and say full moon blue moon crazies. That IS scary. I'm glad only one broke skin but even that rattles - hope you're okay.

    Corgi (Ladonna?), you're cute as a button even in a baggy shirt and you're riding bridleless! Woo hoo!

    CW, that is an adorable gift.

    Very sweet birthday party. It's plain to see you are very loved plus you made out like a bandit! Happy Birthday Festival!

    (In spite of my curmudgeonry re; birthdays, holidays, etc, on occasion we do Birthday Festival which can last a week or more and is about extended pulling rank over movie choices and tv etc and family coming over.....)

    Alex, great post. Poor last kid - he sounds like a lonely kid AND a nervous wreck. With endless prattering he's going to stick his foot right in his mouth. No wonder he said what he said to his last fosters - no internal editing skills. Just telling him when to pipe down and use his ears is a good thing. I hope he learns. The other kids will teach him too.

    Cacowgirl sounds like a great dinner because me - that's my favorite - I love leftovers and salad and you make rolls? Oh YUM! Plus any time you don't have to cook a full meal is a big bonus!

    Eole...lucky girl! Looking forward to reading the updates. Isn't this is the best time of year? It's like time to get in your licks before the cold comes. I'm loving the weather here.

    Stan, you're very funny! I like your stella blog a lot - particularly all of it but that one trek picture with the little girl and her mini and how she tells him he's a BIG horse and when they climb that he's a MOUNTAIN HORSE and she's a MOUNTAIN RIDER. That got right to me! (sigh)

    Rick, your family is adorable - the kid in the front is a hoot - is that a binky with all that attitude? That is too funny! Congrats on the fence. It looks very straight I am duly impressed. Makes me glad someone knows how to do things like that because sinking posts has not proven to be the forte of hubbins or myself and in this world someone has to create some order!

    To all you teachers - have a good first day back! Wishing for smooth sailing for you all. :)

    I am very annoyed that the links here don't work! Is everyone on vacation???

    From almost three dozen, I'm DOWN TO ONE CARROT YOU PIKERS!!

    Cynthia, if you look close in that fence line pic you will see how I was able to get it so straight. There are two strands of pull string(orange) running along with the hot wire. I put one high and one low as to help with leveling them in a straight line.

    Yes, that is a pa'e as he calls it and refuses to go long without it due to his mother's lack of try. Lol He is a mess as the middle grandson in age right now. That is his mother in the pic and she is 5 months along with his sibling. She goes tomorrow to find out what it is even though we have all told her it is a girl since she is carrying low.
