Glad to see you back Alex. Take care of yourself.

Another Friday is coming up yet again. We are travelling to Saskatchewan for my FIL's 85th birthday party. It's a long drive to go there in back in 2 days, but important to see family none the less. Hopefully DH will drive so I can nap.

The days are getting shorter and the ponies are fuzzier by the day. Roadyy, your pics of Little Man remind me of how dark my daughter's mare gets, a sure sign that winter is coming.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Roaddy, every time I would walk into a friend of ours store ( he's now since passed) and was wearing shorts, he would say the same thing....man girl! Your legs go up to your neck!!! miss that guy!

Also, great looking paint! I love paints.

What am I doing this weekend???? Cutting all this out......on the other side of all this lamination are cards!

Actually I'm so far behind....don't know how....I guess with meetings and my need to be right there when the kids learn....I don't get my stuff done....it's an endless paperwork battle.

Weather looks decent today and possibly Sunday. Hoping to get some saddle time in. Leave early tonight....gets me more behind....but I need the time with my troops.

Have a great Friday all!

Alex, do you know what caused the attack as in this has happened before? I remember my cousin had seizures as a young teen and can never get a license even though she has not had an attack in 15 years. I'm not sure if that is by state or country wide.

NikerMarker17, hope you get all of that done and time with the troopers. I went ahead and started Doc on MSM last night as he has seemed stiff the last few days. I have been massaging his back and legs and making him arch his back to try and work the stiffness out, but doesn't seem to be working. Will see how the MSM does for him over the course of this bottle and that will decide if I keep him on it.

Roaddy, I swear by the MSM for both my horses! Jay's like a new horse...Rainn was galloping through the fields when she was on it...but unfortunately she was apparently allergic and got 'hives'. I've never read of anyone else's horses doing that.

I saw improvement within a WEEK!

Good luck!!

Koolio, I hope you have a safe trip to see his father. Help him enjoy them the closer it gets to the final one. I hope he has lived a full life and if family are willing to travel that far for a birthday then I get the feeling he is a good man and very loved.

Anyone notice how the weeks go by faster when you get older?

Thank you Roady. My FIL is a good man and well loved. He also produced wonderful sons. . So far, he is still in good shape, and quite active. He only quit riding about 2-3 years ago but still spends as much time as possible mucking about at the farm.

Pambam - yes, I do notice how the weeks feel shorter as I get older. It makes you want to embrace every moment of every day.

Nicker - good luck with all your prep. Put on some good music and cut away. The good news with laminated materials is that you usually only have to do it once and can then reuse. Next week will be busy for me as we have PST interviews. New booking system allows for 36 time slots, but I have almost 300 kids. Needless to say, I am seeing a lot of parents this week and next on alternative nights and doing lots of phone interviews. It is good to touch base with parents though. By the time DS and I go to San Diego in November, I will be ready for a break!

Still hoping to take Koolio to the stable in early November. Not much point doing it now with interviews on the horizon.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I convinced mom to stay one more day before going back to Slidel,La. DW is going to Pensacola,Fl. In the morning with the young kids for their Bible Quiz Competition so I convinced mom to follow her that far so she would only have half the trip to be on her own. Not that she needs it, but makes me feel better......about having another afternoon with her. Lol I think she knows that is the reason more so than the safety aspect of it. I always seem to squeeze another day or two out of her when she visits.
