    Christmas is coming too fast! Have to pay the property taxes by the end of the year-that is priority one. But, they are less than the 6 months of auto insurance I had to pay at the end of October- I will be so glad when the F-250 is paid off in 2 more months & we can drop the collision coverage.

    DH has a cold, so I'm trying my best to stay healthy. Made a "green smoothie" w/the Nutra bullet-it was pretty good-we both had some-I will have to buy a lot more "greens" to keep making them.

    Have some outdoor chores to catch up on, & lots of plans for this W/E-at least if I'm outside I'm away from hubby's germs!

    TJ-Happy "riding", hope this gives you a little more confidence in your abilities. What goes on in your head, does make a difference to the horse. So, think positive & have fun!

    Happy Friday everyone! (Happy Saturday to you Stan)

    It sounds like there are a few man-colds going around. I hope everyone's significant others get feeling better soon. My son was up at 3:30 this morning throwing up. This is one of those circumstances where it is a good thing I don't hear much as DH heard him and got up with him. My son is feeling better now, but managed to miss a day of school over it.

    I am sorry to see winter has got its grip on a few other places too. With the wind chill the temperature here has been hovering around -25 to -30 for almost 2 weeks now. Average for this time of year is -5. We have also had snow, snow and more snow. We got nearly a foot of new snow yesterday. Needless to say the roads have been terrible with a car in the ditch about every quarter mile or so. I am so glad to have 4WD and a sensible gas pedal foot.

    We are expecting a chinook tomorrow which will bring temperatures up to around freezing. Balmy!! I plan to get out skiing and maybe get a little skijoring in with Sam as well. It is amazing how freezing can feel so warm after a week of -25!

    Stan - I'm right with you in having one more week of work before some time off. I can't wait! Are you off through Christmas holidays? I hope you get some bonding and riding time with Bugs.

    Roadyy- good luck with your fencing. I am amazed by how much you accomplish in a week. It sounds like you are enjoying your new place. Did you decide to purchase or are you leasing?

    Celeste - I find myself of the naughty list tool. Not sure how... Hopefully I'll get on the nice list this year, especially since I put a down payment on a new motorcycle for my husband.

    Happy Place - I love that horsey clothes smell too, but never get do take it to work because I have students with severe allergies.

    Nicker -I am still sending good healing vibes to your husband. I wish him the best on his next procedure and hope his new bionic ticker is going to be fantastic.

    Tjtalon - is Monday your Friday? Waiting on pics of the new headstall.

    Rick, I just found out the guy I was thinking of got his pool in October! My friend suggested you contact a MS Charity Organization because there are thousands of people with MS that are in need of one of those pools and they would probably come and pick it up from you.

    Koolio, I have no idea how I would survive in -25 degree weather. I am such a wimp. Anything under 40 makes me whine like a baby.

    Cacowgirl- we have a restaurant chain here called Tropical Smoothie Cafe. They make a spinach/kale smoothie that is amazing. I was afraid to try it at first but now I am addicted to them. Anytime I feel a cold coming on, I go and get one and I swear I feel better. I should probably learn how to make my own.

    My pony bite is healing much faster than I thought it would. The place where he broke through the skin, scabbed over immediately and all that is left is a yellow bruise around it.

    Tomorrow we are taking Wyatt, our corgi, to get his picture taken with Santa at Petsmart. We have done it for the past 9 years. People think I am silly but I love having that picture every year. If I could get Santa to come to Isabella, I would get her pic taken too.

    Happy Friday everyone! (Happy Saturday to Stan!)

    Koolio: Im of work from the 20th to the 13th a good break. And as you are in the same boat as Celeste with Santa I'll add you to the list needing some assistance getting back into his good books.

    I'm up late (after my truly hated 2p11p Friday shift), but havin' a hard time winding down. One more day (12noon-8p) then off. Tracey, Monday is my "Sunday", am off on Sundays & Mondays. Sundays I try to get everything done I need to do, then out to Janice's on Mondays (I find myself w/a lot of catch-up during the week sometimes, as essentially I have one day "off"...but it's HorseMonday, which is beyond important. I'll get pics as soon as I can of the headstall & reins, @ least of themselves if not on Tommy (& my "practice rig" is still to be constructed).

    CCG, Janice told me that visualizing makes your brain actually think the real thing is going on, so that's the plan. Putting my "positive" together I hope. There's going to be Mondays soon where I can't go out to Janice's because of the weather, so want them to be HorseMondays anyway...w/out the poo I guess! I've decided to be patient w/all of this, & let the process happen.

    Good to see a post from you, Stan, hope the holiday break does you well. I agree w/the hunting; you kill it, you eat it. I'll try just about anything, but not possum; I know it's not a rodent, but looks enough like one, so, nope. Good luck w/the deer hunt, & w/your new rifle.It does sound like you need a good break, from everything but Bugs.

    Ladona, I didn't have a chance to comment on the ponybite-electric fence fiasco, but glad it didn't go real serious on you & that your healing. What I thought when I read it was "Good Grief, Corgi!!" Ouch!

    Have to go to bed now. One more work day-nite. Seems that I'm on Santa's Good List this year, that's never happened before, I've generally gotten "coal in my stocking" lol! Now I've got a purpose & a project.

    'Nite all.


    I've enjoyed the comments about horse fragrance on clothing. When I come home on Mondays I wear the sweatshirt I wore while there all day before I have to put it in the laundry basket, & sniff my hands as long as reasonable before I have to wash them! I feel wistful having the odor go away.

    Ladona, I will see search online today to see what we have around here for MS organizations and let them know what I have available.

    We are doing a lease/purchase on the house for 1 year to make sure we do want to buy it. At the price and size, I would be an idiot not to make that investment even if we only stayed in it 5 years and flipped it. Once, fixed back up within a reasonable budget the property should be valued in the $300k range. If I can stick to my budget then that would be about $140k profit.


    Naughty list,hmmmm,, I find myself thinking of the Chevy commercial about Santa's naughty list. The one where those on the nice list get the white cars and those on the naughty list get the red cars. I like that naughty/nice list.


    Tracey, reading about your skijoring and it reminds me of my teen years. I had a friend who raised Brahmas from birth as pets, yes pets. His back fields were on hills and terraced( look like steps up the hill side) and we would tie the rope around the bull's waist and slap on our water skiis. The bull would drag both of us all over the flat land and we did great, BUT when he headed for the terraced hill, we got nervous, no scratch that, we got skeerd! He ran down that hill and staying in the upright position was never a harder thing to do, but if you did you were laughing so hard at the bottom or top. There were a couple of times we wound,literally, up in the barbwire and pasture fencing that was about 15 feet from the last step at the bottom. No one was ever seriously injured and no bulls were harmed during the making of that fun. Small pun at disclosures in films..lol

    NM17, will still keep your hubby on the prayer list as others are doing til he comes out of the procedure as Steve Austin. Although with his new bionic power and stamina, you may be in some serious trouble keeping up with him. Haha

    We are expecting 100% rain today and I'm sitting here at work waiting to see when or if we get rained out. Either way will suit me. Stay and I make money, go and I drive T-posts in the ground and get closer to the horses being moved.

    Finally got to see the yard during daylight hours after work yesterday to see the difference after the kids from church raked up almost all of the yard. It really looked good.

    Later all.

    The question is, to get off the naughty list, do you have to quit being naughty, or just try to figure a way to distract old St. Nick? On the other hand, I really like red cars..........

    I've seen pics of most of you ladies and can honestly say that you all can use just a light flick of the hair over the shoulder and have him fully distracted.


    The old "get out of a ticket" flirt trick on cops.

    I called the number I found for the North Florida chapter of the MS Society and left a message. They are closed on weekends so does that mean no one suffers from MS on the weekends? That has got to make looking forward to the weekends so much better for them.
