Koolio, good luck with the hearing aids. This may open up a whole new world for you!!!
Also, Koolio, you are right....after winter solstic, Stan will begin to have the shorter days!!!!

Looking forward to seeing my troops when I get home. I can't imagine how dirty the stalls are....

Hoping to get some,rides I this break...the weather is warm now (50s) but rainy.....but...I don't melt...so I may have to gear up and go! Hahaha
I know its the longest day tomorrow 22nd and we get it befor you get your shortest and I also know I tend to rub it in a little because we generally have horse riding weather all year round. Talking about riding I'm not doing any lately and I have also been told a number of my riding friends are also having troubles with the horses missbehaving. Due to the drought conditions settling back in and the lack of rain through the winter the only grass growing is rye and that is not good for horses. There is a trek on the 18th Jan and SWMBO let it slip last night she was riding a friends horse, that was untill I told her I'm going deer stalking with my son that weekend and will be using the truck. Just another hurdle to get over.
However I do intend to spend time with the horse over the next two weeks and get a ride in if I can calm him down enough.
Nickers sometimes one has to take a hard line with family. You did the right thing by insisting mother leave you two to it. Its a time for both of you to reconnect. What you both have been through is life changing and a lot of plans and dreams get changed, what was important yesterday now does not matter.
I went through a lot of changes in my thinking and what was important and what was not. But it settles down. Its been two years on the 22nd since I had my first heart attack. But no problems since the doctors did their thing back then. Tell you husband not to be in a hurry to get back to work, I did go back early and it was a mistake. It took me three months to get back fully.
Let us know how he is progressing.
Its another dry hot day and no I'm not sticking it to you its a problem when its to hot in NZ, we have a high rate of skin problems caused by to much exposure to the the sun. And it does effect the riding, one has to ride the forest all the time for the cool shade the trees provide.
