I have to agree with Rick of his assessment of the photos we have seen and just a flick of the hair should do it. However, on the off chance Santa has had a bad evening with Mrs Clause I will still put in a good word for those who think they need it. That is, if I have mannaged to get back into his good books myself, but then, a nice new red vehicle to tow the float will not go astray.

Rick that has got to be a good investment. My property was not brought on the basis of investment, but rather a life style so that is another way of looking at it. But I need a swiming pool.

I did think of a his and hers pools. I'd cut the top off a couple of plastic 44 gallon drums, put them half way in the ground a small wooden deck around them, changing shed, bar table and there you have it no arguing over who is in the shallow end or has the best sun position on the deck.

Time to change Bugs from his paddock into the Jenny Craig one he has put on a little more weight.

Cheers all
Nickers, all good thoughts to your husband and you.

Stan - you can tell Santa that red is my favorite color too, but I want mine with a front end loader and a three point hitch. Unfortunately, I think I will have to settle for hearing aids...

Rick - it sounds like the house will be a good investment, especially if you can build up some "sweat equity". It is also good that you get some time to decide. As the economy improves, this may work out Very well for you. Do you have a guarantees purchase price until you decide?

Stan, are you sure you don't live in Georgia? That sounds like a Georgia Redneck idea. Fantastic! Jeff Foxworthy would be proud!

Happy Saturday

Snow, snow and more snow. It sure is pretty! My chickens definitely do not like it. I started my new arthritis meds this morning. It knocked me out and I slept for HOURS lol. I guess I will be taking it at bedtime from now on. I was supposed to ride today but with all the sleeping and snow....

I have only 4 days left to work. I cannot wait. The kids are cranky and it's getting on my last nerves! We all need a break I guess. Hoping to rest and ride lots!

We're getting our Christmas tree tomorrow. I'll post pics when it's all done.

Stan- I think I need to be put in the Jenny Craig pasture with Bugs!!!

Hi all!

Trying to keep,up with all the posts.

Again THANK YOU for all the positive posts. I read them to my DH...they make us both feel blessed! I wish there was a smiley with a heart.

Not much horsing around here....did chores and then rushed out to shop. I think I am just about ready for Christmas. Still waiting on several gift to come in the mail. Found a real nice 32 in flat screen TV for the bedroom. Will,surprise DH with it when he comes home from the hospital. Thought he would like to have different places to chill and watch TV and movies.

The surgery has been been moved up to Wednesday now...not bc of DH, but the docs schedule...which we are happy about...let's get this done with and home for the holidays.

That being said, I'll take Wednesday/ Thursday off work, and hope to make it back Friday afternoon to celebrate with the kids. One of the parents made me think...she said the kids would want to celebrate withme, not a sub....so now that the surgery is moved up, I think I can swing it!

Speaking of the kids, I had told them I wasn't sure if I would be back this past Friday....depending on how the tests went. When they saw I returned, I received lots of hugs! Made me smile.

It snowed and snowed today. It would have been beautiful to ride, but it was the lady day of deer, so the woods were full of gun shots. Maybe tomorrow....after I go I to school. I got the mantanace guy to open up the school for me so I can pull myself together for this last week.

Stan, what did they do to fix your heart? How SWMBO? Talking yet?

TJ, wanna see this rig!

Happy, are you a teacher or counselor? I forget what you said.

When I was out shopping I bought some senior feed for Rainn. Tomorrow I'll start slowly switching her feed over. Hoping it helps put weight back on her.

Speaking of Rainn...you know she is my escape artist... I again left the gate open to the barn bc I was getting one more square of hay for them. I heard little clip claps coming up behind me...turn around and there Rainn coming through the man door. Simultaneously as she comes through the door she spies me, and I say "Raiiinnnneeerrrr". She spins around and high tails it out the door! she is so stinking funny! I laughed and laughed!

That's about it on this end for now. Here is a pic from this afternoon after much of,our snow fall.

Is that not a beautiful "rig'?

Speaking of beautiful: I have short hair, so none to flick. I rely on my eyes to do the flicking for me, lol. Well...they say the eyes & the smile never age, so, there ya' go!

Pretty pic, Nicker!, & what a big day you've had. Much much good luck on your husband's surgery, fingers way crossed.

I LOVE the pic of Ladona's corgi w/Santa; what a pretty little dog! He looks happy, & bet he gets what he wants in his Christmas stocking...if he hasn't eaten shredded both stocking & present yet, that is...

Tracey: that gift to your husband should out you on Nice List for several years...!

& I'm w/Celeste; Stan is secretly living in Georgia...

Rick, did you get rained out @/or work or rained on placing posts?!

Hope all had a good Saturday & will have a good Monday. I'm going to go to KingSoopers (grocery chain) tomorrow & put a dent in the gift card from my Christmas bonus (& call me Mum, like every Monday, & do chores, & & &): look forward to HorseMonday; supposed to be very nice weather (might change later in the week).

Later then..
