    Rick-hubby will be working on the stove again today-some kind of box for support for the stove pipe at the ceiling. All the backer board is up, the platform is tiled & done. We will have to get pellets pretty soon. Strange-for me-but I'm not dreading winter this year. Glad you got a chance to get on Trusty.

    Corgi-in a few hours, I'll be heading for Utah. Quite excited. DH couldn't get his CD's to eject-they have been in that truck for a couple of years, so I will have to listen to "his" music. At least it plays and he will be putting a single disc player into my truck-I think I can handle that.

    Hunter-glad to hear you have a sale. The way I bought this mare is not a recommended way, but I think it will work for me. This is the first time I've bought a horse w/out seeing/riding first. Her registration papers are already back from the Registry, so I'll have everything in hand later today.

    Stan-glad to hear your buyer is so happy w/Stella! Nice that you will be able to see her from time-to time, also. Hope you feel better soon. Are we doing rain dances for you again?

    So now that my pictures are saved to this computer-somewhere?, & on DH's laptop, I guess I can delete the images from the card? Some of the pictures are a couple of years old. Then I can start new w/the card? We got ink for the newer printer, but haven't printed anything yet-I went to my neighbor's to get new directions printed last night, as we decided on the alternate route through Flagstaff-it will be all new roads to me, but less hectic than driving near Las Vegas & those bad crosswinds around the Hoover Dam.

    Have already planned a ride for this W/E-can't wait to get out & about on my new horse!

    CS-sorry that you had to "lose" your help for a little while, but kids have to learn certain things. I am looking forward to ordering a trash bin next week-that's how I've always gotten rid of the manure and it will help w/the clean-up of this place-it will be going out full for quite awhile!

    Once again Bre didn't wake up and get ready so I have to be a mean mom

    I went to the parent teacher conferences last night and got to talk to all but one teacher. "he didn't show up" it was one of the classes she is struggling in.
    Bre says he is a new teacher this year and he coaches a softball team.
    She told me that the teacher SnapChats with the girls on the team and even does it while teaching.
    Does that seem right to you??? I don't know.

    The other class "French" the teacher is going to get her some extra help.

    I hope you get to ride tonight FC

    CA Have a safe trip. Can't wait for pictures Make sure you look for the new ones then delete the card. May be able to look in resent downloads.

    Stan I am so happy for stella that sounds like a great match

    Rick glad you got to ride Trusty and he is doing so well..

    Yay hunter I bet he will be so happy in his new home

    I don't know what "snap chatting" is, but it sounds like you need to be sure that it is within the scope of normal teacher/student relationship. This could be a teacher that is walking on thin ice........

    Critter, we are finding in our school system that new teachers don't understand the proper boundaries that need to exist between teachers and students. They are so used to living their lives through social media and texting and facetime, etc, that they often cross the line without even realizing it. Someone needs to complain to his supervisor. It is not acceptable.

    Snap chatting is chatting through pictures you snap a picture and maybe add a ord or two to it then send to a Friend the picture will only be able to be viewed for up to 12 seconds. I think it is very sketchy

    If the picture goes away, it could easily be inappropriate and nobody would know.

    Had only popped in to peek & catch up, but:

    Lori: NO Way is that teacher appropriate. Red flag;maybe not an issue w/our world as "it is", but...not in school, not w/children. Nope.

    Critter sitter - what you described is NOT appropriate behaviour for the teacher. While relationships with students are important, they must always be professional. Unfortunately, social media jeopardizes that. If this is occurring during instructional time, I would say something to the admin. If you are concerned about Bre's success in that class, I would phone the teacher and ask him how you and he can help her. I hope he had a very good reason for missing interviews.

    Wow! CS!!! We were warned and warned about social media. MANY teachers have lost their jobs for such things!!! Our principals even recommended NOT having FB!! That's why I am under an assumed name, hidden, and use an obscure picture, no towns nothing.....he scared me too much!! Admin needs to know!

    Left early for me today and got a really nice ride in. Almost two hours!! Jay did well. I love this new trek I found. Lots for him to look at and think about!!! He still hates those piggies!

    Tomorrow is finally Friday!! Yea! Good week...but I felt like TODAY should have been Friday. That makes it, I have been awake since 3:00. Hate nights like that.

    I shot several,pictures from our ride. Various things to see.

    Fund a new off shoot.....
