    You only have to deal with snow a few months out of the year. We have to dredge through this stuff year round. It can wear a body out fighting the unstable footing as it sifts out from under you while trying to carry a really heavy cooler, umbrella, chairs and blankets for everyone to hang out on to keep as much of this stuff out of the privy parts. That can rub a person the wrong way, you know. Many a person has had a case of raw,uhmm you know,, due to improper protection from this stuff.....that we have year round....down here in Florida....

    Rick, you're kitchen looks really nice. But all that sand and heat: I'm so sorry you HAVE to live in such an unbearable climate.

    Koolio, I'm late commenting, but I admire you for your desire to study and get a degree. That takes time and dedication. If it takes you to a job you really enjoy, it must be worth it. You would work at the same time?

    NM, I wonder how you can find time and energy for both your teaching and your riding. You sure are young at heart. How is DH doing?

    Well, 2 short rides for me on Alize yesterday in the woods and today on the road. She had boots with studs in front and there was ice on the road under the packed snow. She was careful and slipped a little behind going downhill.

    Picture of today: we're looking at a winding road below us, going down to a bridge over the lake, then back up the mountain. It's part of a regular loop we do. It's way steeper than the picture suggests.

    Ummm, a late reply, but just got on to read; what's worse, Stan, is that the revolver I want fits my hand, trigger moves like butter, kicks like a mule, & I'm a good shot. However, to soothe your feelings, I can't barbecue to save my life & have no one from whom to swipe a pick up truck. I do, however, vote..not that it does much good.

    Rick, I'm so sorry for you, all that sand-trudging & sand-burn on the feet. Remember I have your address; I may give it to Ladona so she can send you a bag of mud...lol! Kidding you, you know. I'd rather deal w/Colo-weirdo weather than have a real fear of hurricanes &/or tsunamis. We've all got something. Gotta look for the good.

    CCGirl, I AM seeing progress, or trying to. Janice sees more than I do, she said last Monday my body language/memory shows that I'm retaining info, & reminded me to not THINK so much. Dang...brain gets in the way, but am learning in spite of it I guess.

    Eole, that's a beautiful pic, & the pic does show the steepness if it's looked at closely...that road is far below.

    'Nuff for me right now, have to do some stuff then get ready for work tomorrow.

    Morning ieveryone,

    Eole...you made me smile. Yes, I would say I am young at heart....yet I at night...I go to bed and fall instantly asleep! I do wish I was a bit more wise tho....I have a friend in her thirties who just seems wise beyond her years....maybe she's a good actor! Hahahaha

    Book my hotel and put in for my personal day....Equine Affair....here we come!!!!

    DH started back to work his week. Doing good, but as expected , tired. He won't tell you that, but he's becoming hypersensitive to everything I say, so I KNOW!. Last night I couldn't say anything right without offending him....I delt with a crying 3rd grader all day ( she couldn't shop at the book fair bc she forgot $$$$, so she cried the whole time..... Others forgot too, but made lists to shop today). So....I didn't have much energy or compassion for his boohooing...... Oh I tired...I tried very hard....and did circumvent an argument....but jeez,.

    Didn't ride last night, but did take dog and Rainn for a nice walk.

    Weekend is almost here!

    Oh, Eole, great ears!!

    Sounds like DH needs to work on his fitness which will build up his strength and improve the attitude. I got a little sensitive to people always asking "are you alright" we would be riding along and out it would come. I know they meant no harm but it did annoy me. I often have to deal with Roslyn in a mood. I have been known to say "your acting like an A H but I still love you" The doctors at the emergency clinic are used to me now. One even asked me if I will ever learn to shut up.

    Rick I to find the stuff gets every where too even when I go for a swim in the surf, and when riding, and the wind blows it around. But it is warm

    Thats what I'm talking about. I forgot to take pictures of me and Daughter walking along the surf bare footed as the water ran up over our ankles. Water was cold and the sand was warm which made it feel really good. Feeling the heat of the sun as I squinted my eyes from the brightness. I think I got sunburned and need to wash out all the sand that got in my shoes from my feet. All gritty and annoying when that happens. Guess I'll just hose them down real good before putting them on to walk around the yard. It's not like they will freeze from being soaked and outside or anything.


    Good morning all.
