    Just peekin' in to catch up a bit...

    Thanks to all who popped in to boost my "forward motion". I can do this, I can do this...haven't had a lesson since the 2nd of this month (the 1st time in saddle on Tommy) what w/catching up to muck-lesson exchange @ first, then the RAIN, making it impossible to do either. So..sunny & '70s predicted for Monday, & looking way forward to it.

    Happy to see Rick poppin' on again (& giggling watchin Stan trying not to "offend"..that must hurt! I don't think he offended much. I never was.) Nicker!! Good luck tonite!!

    Welcome danny...I really like the pic of the pretty AQH Palimino.

    1st horse I was ever put on was an AQH Palimino mare, when I was in diapers, & my (Missouri State Trooper) uncle led me around a round-pen. I must've wailed to do it, & my uncle over-rode my parents' objections (I can see the whole thing as plan as yesterday; their worried faces, & my tall uncle leading me around). He must've known something. LOL, that WAS the 1st time I was on a western saddle, not this Sept 9! That's funny.

    Hope all are having a good week; that the pellets work in the new stove, that New Zealand wins the Regatta, that pretty young women in lovely dresses whale the tar outta anything in their way in jeeps, that baby girls get a sense of strength & family while their own "gets it together", that the funky insects are outta the hay finally, that the horses who bang up themselves on something while being silly heal fast, that tea is just as good as coffee sometimes & that new horses will walk gently into that void created by the loss of another.

    Hi all, woohoo! Survived meet the teacher! Never know what may show up at my door!, the parents were nice...and Roaddy....I did catch a dad sneaking a peek my way a couple times. Hahahaha. I smiled and thought of you!!

    Welcome Danny, nice horses,

    Eole, you make me laugh too, but the 71 at the end of my name is the year I was born....I am 42! thanks for the compliment. I was given good genes!

    I'm startling to feel a little less stressed. Last week was meetings, grades due yesterday, jays shoes yesterday! Then tonight! Tomorrow! Beauty treatments for me. Another late night. I'm really ready to just chill.

    Last night we shortened jays toes a bit more and heightened his heel. Took a quick spin through the woods. I needed it. I won't be able to ride again until Saturday. Although, it's to be beautiful, so I am hoping for a mega ride!! . Farrier says his feet still look good and still healing well!

    Critter, great pics, my nephew designed the Chevy Cruz's fenders!!! . He works for GM...obviously. Lol

    CCG, happy your troops are settling in. Do you live in a rural area? You mentioned flagstaff once. We drove through that area during out big western tour last summer.....we LOVED that area!! Do you drink green tea? So good for you, and helps with metabolism.

    Roaddy, I'm glad you are getting your mojo back. I can tell through your posts!!. That makes me happy!! Wow that encounter at the jail is goosbumpy....hope that all works out for the baby. It's always the kids who seem to suffer. . You are doing such a wonderful, wonderful thing.

    Corgi, didn't realize you went through all of that! You are doing great!!

    Ok, all for now. May peek in at lunch....thinking I may not go to the lounge much or at all. There's a woman that I am friendly with, but actually just tolerate....the last week has been very negative and she is the main cause. I walk into the lounge and each time she's in there b*tching about something........I don't like talking about kids, I would like to have intelligent conversations, but she can only handle gossip or degradation. Not sure how much more I can take...... I need to get out of my room...but her negative Ora can easily seep into ones soul....ICK,. We will see. I like the others in there, so I will miss out talking to them..

    Gotta sleep. Talk soon!

    Welcome Danny. The horse looks great and hope to see you stick around to add to the life of this place.

    Tj, that is a great story about your uncle. Glad you remember that and didn't let the love of horses die with your parents disapproval.

    Lori, I have 1 or 2 of those daughters who loves doing tomboy activities in girly clothes. You can see the fun in Bre's eyes. Iactually went back and found a couple of videos made by one of the members of our jeep club at a local offroad park after looking at the jeep picture.

    NikerMacker, did you just admit to thinking of me while you are around other men? Now ladies you all need to take notice of this from her. THAT is how you boost a man's ego!!!

    Yes, my area is quite rural-only 2-6 vehicles pass by the driveway daily. Flagstaff is almost forest-like. My area only gets a few inches of snow annually and I don't think we'll ever need chains in our area. I've tried green tea-my favorite is a Bigelow one-I'll look for it next time I'm in Smart & Final-thanks for the reminder.

    Our nights will start dipping into the 60's soon~~we'll have to get the swamp cooler covered & prepped for winter soon.

    I'm hoping to get my trash bin delivered today or tomorrow & we'll fill it for the Monday morning pick-up~~we have to have the gates open by 5 A.M.! Not a problem-I'm up before that.

    Nicker-so sorry to hear of the complaining lady-that can be such a downer. I, too have good genes~~I was CARDED@ 49! In a bar/restaurant for a glass of wine w/dinner. The lady was so serious & I was mortified as I was there to tell my current hubby that I was 8 years older then him. So she kind of let the cat out of the bag before I was ready. He got a good laugh out of it & it was a moot point. Glad that Jay's feet are coming along.

    Hi to Danny-very nice horse, hope to see more posts from you.

    Tj-happy riding! Will you be on Tommy? Hope the lessons are more frequent now that the trainer is back. My favorite teas are Earl Grey & Constant Comment-I'm a flavor junkie!

    Went to town late yesterday-so didn't get all the things done that I wanted to-so another trip is on my agenda.

    Yes, Rick, I never let the parents kill THAT love in me, nor the love of reading books. Oh, they stomped on everything, but they didn't know any better. They'd gotten stomped on, so had no other idea of "parenting". Is what it is. Now my 83 y/o mother encourages the come back to horses (& I think it's 'cuz now she can, having been stomped on by my Dad for eons. She's got some room to breathe, at last. First thing she said this past May when I told her was "Oh! Do it! You have to get your confidence back". Yay Mom!)

    Yup, CCG, will be on "my" Tommy again, at last, on Monday. Can't wait! I don't much care for Earl Grey tea, but love Constant Comment. I like flavored teas too. Even w/regular, I splash in the lemon-squeezie thing.

    2 more days 'till my "friday" on Saturday, then home-chores Sunday, then head out to the 'lil ranch on Monday. 2 weeks is too long to be away from Magick Horse Breath!

    PS Rick...just have to laugh! I'm too old & gnarly to stroke your ego that way, I just want to adopt you as a long-lost brother! Will leave the the other to the lovely Lady Nicker! Tee hee...

    Hi everyone!!

    Ok listen to THIS....within a 10 minute time frame, I intervened in two of my students argument (8 yr old tattling) and got the quilty party to confess and AND say sorry ( tough pill to swallow) , my faucet blew off and flooded my back corner where the student computer is housed, AND evacuated for an unannounced fire drill!!! All without flinching and holding on to my smile! . I think I deserve a gold star today!!

    Had my hair appointment. My niece does it....she's 25 and she is a hoot. We giggle and giggle. Feels good to belly laugh! (Smiling just thinking about our antics!!)

    Bc of niece, who has a friend at my vet clinic...I was able to get a bottle of bute within an hour of calling! Yea, nice to know people in just the right places. Trying to talk my oldest sister into riding with me. Need to have some in hand just in case. I always rode with her friend, never with her.....been way too long....a mere 40 years!

    Took my care to the rotor tomorrow.

    Our neighbors just recently lost their house to foreclosure. Moved out officially a couple weekends ago. They were nice, but we weren't chummy. Good people, but never took care of the outside. Drove DH nuts as he is a bit of a lawn guru. Actually at one point we gave them our old lawn mower to use.....

    Well DH was walking the dog yesterday and decided to snoop....found the door open! So of course we had to go in....they never invited us in. Wow! Never would have guessed what shape it was in...very dirty and smells aweful! who ever buys it will need to put a TON of $$$$ into fixing it up! Yikes!! Looks like they let their kids write all over th walls too....never know what goes on behind closed doors.....that's for sure!!

    CCG, yes the mountains and pines are what drew us to flagstaff, very beautiful. Wasn't crazy for Phoenix, which my sis loves. Loved Sodona tho!!

    That's all I got for now. Talk later!!
