..I thought about thrush, too, w/all that mud...

Rick, that sounded lie a good time to stop, shower, & relax. Good on you.

I love your pics, Nicker! Does look like Siberia...winter has to go away now. My sister is Iowa texted me that there's a bigger snowfall this year than ever recorded. She sent me a pic of her backyard...oh, my...way too much snow.

I'm thinkin' way too much mud is way too much worse...

Nicker, I enjoy a good dark beer on my "fridays", Sam Adams Cherry Wheat or Creme Stout (a little goes a long way). Can't stand hard liquor or wine, both make me very ill. Think I'm allergic to wine, get a headache just smelling it.

Thanks MR, I do think I live for HorseMondays, they're very good for me. I just re-signed up (it's been awhile) on the Smith & Wesson forum, as have some questions about the revolver I liked.

So, gonna go there, ask my question, then get my dinner & go to bed. Good plan.

Nite all.

A priest says to his friend, the rabbi, that he has a perfect way of eating for free in restaurants.


"I go in at well past 9 o'clockin the evening, eat several courses slowly, linger over coffee, port and a cigar.


Come 2 o'clock, as they are clearing everything away, I just sitthereuntil a waiter comes up and asks me to pay.



Then I say: 'I've already paid your colleague who has left.'


Because I am a man of thecloth, they take my word for it, and I leave."



The rabbi is impressed, and says: "Let's try it together this evening."


So the priest books them into a restaurant and come 2 o'clockthey are both still quietly sitting there after a very full meal.



Sure enough,a waiter comes over and asks them to pay.


The priest just says: "I've already paid your colleague who has left."



And the rabbi adds: "And we are still waiting for the change!"

So you all don't feel alone with the rain and snow and as Rick has not rubbed salt into the wound with him enjoying good weather I will make you all feel a little better. Its raining on my place. All day.

I'm having a day off on Friday. Tomorrow Thursday I taking my friends Merc to Auckland on a car trailer. I did tell him to by a Toyota. and spending Friday spending money in a sports shop. No Roslyn is not coming.

Talking about wives. TJ it frightens me to think you run around with a pistol strapped to your hip. What's next, we men gave the women the vote, and now they run the country, we taught them to shoot a rifle and now they have hand guns, and, to add insult to injury we teach them how to us the BBQ and they take off with the pickup truck. Ill retire now.

Good joke Stanley!! I literally LOL

Hey Stan....guess what I found???? Hahaha. $$$$$. Well, not really, but my United Way walking team wone the weekly gift....a gift card to Home Depot!!!

Speaking of...we wear those contraptions that rack your steps.....the name is escaping me this early morning. Anyway....apparently it captures every horse step because I went from 7,345 to 14,789 while,out at the barn!!

It's only fair....my stride is so long that most people get two steps for my one... I need to catch up!

Oh....it's a pedometer...now that I wrote all that out...it popped in my brain...

Happy hump Day!!!

Had a busy day yesterday-went to the MVD here to get my Sport Trac back on the road & saw that a new Driver's License was available to Veterans, so I got one! They just put the word Veteran below the address & above the physical description-I thought that was pretty cool. Then we got new headlights for the Trac, a headlight restoration kit, cleaner for the K&N filter, and a few other things-it all got done yesterday afternoon.

We also went & picked up the freezer I bought on Monday-about a 20+ cu .ft. upright, commercial grade. So now I have to plan a trip to Costco or Sam's to stock it-so, eventually it will mean fewer trips to town.

Today, I have blood work being done, so fasting until that is over, then I'll have a good breakfast in town & maybe visit a few shops.

TJ-sounds like a good Horse Monday-so glad you are seeing progress.

Rick-House chores & maintenance sometimes seem never-ending. Our girl dog loves to chew on our steps & they are very rickety now-so that is the next priority, I guess. Then I have to make some more window screens-at least 4 before hot weather comes to stay. I wish I felt confident enough to make one for the sliding door-that would make such a difference.

NM-I'm glad you got the work day out of the way, so it isn't going to have to be made up later & that you got a ride in.

Ladonna-Hope that feeder works for you & hope Scruffy mends quickly. My young mare rubbed out a large section of her beautiful long black mane-really made it look funny & the donkey sometimes chews on the Morgan mare's nice long tail-I think I will put some lattice in between their adjoining fences so she can't do that anymore.

We're galloping towards another W/E again. My Dodge Truck goes over the auction block Saturday afternoon-hoping for a good price! Of course, I'm going to be there-LOL!

Have a good day everyone!
