    Going to try to post a couple pics I took yesterday using my good camera. I am still playing around with this new laptop and figuring out how it all works.

    Here it goes.....

    Stan, well....He just ordered a $65k fishing boat. A $8k huntng trip would have been preferrable.

    Back home-we sure did miss the critters! But they were fine & our "sitters" had no problem w/them. Now I have "triple duty" on the corrals-I'll finish raking them out today, & get it in the dumpster. We had dinner @ Claim jumper w/1 couple Friday, then they joined us for a BBQ at our other friend's house-we played horseshoes, Mexican train & had a nice fire in the firepit. A nice drive home on Sunday after breakfast & packing the truck. DH got the necessary RX's, so we are set w/that for awhile. Did some shopping @ Costco & Harbor Freight Tools, & I got a new pair of tennis/hiking shoes that were on clearance @ Bass Pro Shops. DH found sandals that he liked @ Costco, & we also got a pair for our friend after he admired them. Had a great time w/all the visiting, & at the hotel-they remembered me from 4 months ago! We even got the same room we had before!

    I am more determined to lose what I have recently gained weight-wise, & will ride alone if that is what it takes. Took the extra time to make enchiladas last night, but no left-overs-so have to start from scratch again tonight & make my batch of rice also. DH started the fire as soon as we got home yesterday, while I unpacked the truck-LOL!

    Welcome to our new posters-hope you enjoy it here-we have a nice group of caring folks here & we try not to get to dramatic-haha.

    Well, I cancelled my riding lesson today, we're in a snow storm and driving an hour in bad road conditions isn't worth the risk. I'm taking care of the horses at home, so fortunately I'm getting my daily dose or "horse-breath" therapy.

    Welcome to the new-comers, don't be shy and jump in anytime!

    NM71, what's a "little" blanket compared to fancy trips and boats! Funny thing, I found exactly 30$ in old pants pocket this week.
    Celeste and Corgi, you're absolutely right: we have to live today as fully as we can.

    Yesterday I went ski-joering with my belgian shepherd. So much fun!!! Basically, a belt on me, harness on the dog and a bungie in between. I ski and she pulls. I have to train some commands like "easy, right, left, whoa". I was worried she might go after a deer with me in tow.

    It's snowing heavily, time to light the stove. It's an insert in the stone chimney. It seems many of us have a stone chimney. Even Roadyy, although I can't understand why you'd need one in eternally warm Florida...
    Winter is tough this year, came early and excessive cold. We already went through the amount of wood we burn each winter and it's still early in the season.

    I have your guilt free quote.

    What will it cost you if you don't have the blanket there for them and they get sick from the frozen temps? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!


    I just sent DW to a local horse shop to pick up 3 more turnout blankets with matching neck rugs for the boys. The blankets are $60 a piece on clearance and the necks are $26 a piece.

    Eole, I left Ms. To get away from the cold and here we are about to have 3 days of rain and freezing temps. They say this area hasn't seen weather like this or for this long since '89. I like the fireplace for the look and for the romantic application when me and DW are the only ones home in the winter. I have threatened to buy a hot tub to put on the back patio as well, but figure that will come later when some of the other projects are caught up on.

    I went and bought 20 more 6' T posts Saturday evening and pulled string yesterday after church for where we are going to run the new fencing wire to expand their area. We still haven't heard or received anymore communication from the city ordinance office and figure it is being stuff under the pile to see if it gets anymore complaints before doing anything. After talking with Eddie, who we are buying from, we decided we are going to continue waiting on them rather than contacting them. Either way I would need more posts to fence in another lot to put them on.

    Eddie finally got to see the property after all the clearing I did and was completely blown away at how much property was there not being used due to underbrush and trees. He is going to try and get the pool hauled out of there ASAP so I can run the fence wire with out having to take it down to get the pool out later. I will have to drag my horse shed up closer to the shop. Which is a good thing as I can just run one cord out to power it and the fence rather than two like I have now.

    Looks like everyone is doing well and had a great weekend. I hope TJ is getting plenty caught up on her last day off since she couldn't make it out to Janice's.

    Nickers a flat screen and so he should have it and that extra found in the pocket would have brought a nice foot stool. You photos are great but not sideways This time upside down. Right way up if I adjust the laptop.

    Ladona I too once owned a nice boat, but then the horses came along and out went the boat. The say owning a boat is like throwing money into a hole in the ocean and as for horses that's just a hole in the paddock we throw money into. I have had a number of boats in my time. I even owned a commercial fishing boat operating out of Auckland. I am over fishing, now as for my hunting I still have to find away to break the news to Roslyn that I want to go on the trip to New Caledonia. Before its to late. Any pointers from the ladies greatfully accepted.

    Gave bugs a slop down because of the ticks and used a medicated wash. After we did the grooming thing I scratched his chest while he rested his head on my head. A little dangerous but a magic moment. Pity I can't get photos. It did worry me he may bite at least he can not tear out any hair.

    Rick no new is good news on the horse on the property issue. Could you get a copy of the city rules and check it for yourself.

    Just a thought

    Never Argue with a Woman
    One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out herself.

    She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, and begins to read a book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.

    Along comes a Fish & Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'

    'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that quite obvious?')

    'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.

    'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I am reading!'

    'Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up a ticket.'

    'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault,' says the woman.

    'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.

    'That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.'

    'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.


    MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.


    No offence intended

    Quick post before I go dig out my frozen car & get to work. Did get caught up on alot on days off, & got in some movie time on the couch too.

    Texted Janice yesterday that maybe we need to talk; that maybe it's just the winter, but the 'arrangement" is getting unfair to her & I'm just getting discouraged. So.....will see what The Great Horse Spirit has in mind....eventually.

    Everyone that's in the cold parts try to stay warm & be careful on the roads.
