    Hi everyone!

    Bolted from work on time today and grabbed a really nice ride!!!!

    Jay rode really well, in fact, I think the ground work has changed him a bit.....he was SUPER responsive...meaning, ya know when you first learn to drive, and you seem to jerk the passengers? Yeah, I hardly had to touch his sides and he was wiling To go! I felt like I was in the new drivers car....I would,hardly move and he would want to go, lol

    Really funny thing....just got back from our ride, Jay was tied up, ready to be unsaddled, and I was standing there talking to my mom. Mags was there and decided to go nose to nose with Jay......she LICKED his nose!!!! in response, Jay gave the upper nose lip up! Hahaha. It was the cutest thing EVER!!!!

    As I was out riding, I got a call from my dads wife...guess my dad is bad and she took him to the emergency room. Bad means he stays in bed all day, is confused and I guess he fell in the shower the other day. I've told her several times that it's time to move,him to the home.....but she won't...it's all about $$$$ for her. She can't give him the care he needs. They moved to where they are so they could easily go to the 'home'.......I think he ready needs to go...if you know what I mean. I suspect he will be admitted, so I will go visit tomorrow....she allows him to sleep all day and not take his meds, so no wonder he is wacked out....he needs to be under contestant care....but I am the youngest, so. Nobody listens to me....

    So,happy for,the weekend..DH works this weekend, so...maybe a horsey and movie weekend.

    Well, it's time for some Girl Scout cookies....I still have to wo boxes left!

    Have a good weekend all!

    Sorry to hear that work is being so tough for some of you.

    Our "little" tractor is a Kubota-it's orange-DH's Dad just bought a medium sized tractor It's another "K" name & it's orange, also. Ours needs two front tires, as they are flat-maybe next month. This month he's getting two new lithium batteries for his power tools-always something for him & his "toys"!

    DH went out on a ATV ride today & wouldn't you know it-the power went off-it was off for 3 hours, but I called after two & they said it would be about another hour for the last 35 houses. They were right on the money w/that estimate.

    I might go watch some bull-riding tomorrow-it will be the inaugural event for a new arena for Laughlin.

    We are not cold in the sense that so many of you are, but we had a strong wind all day today & it was chilly & uncomfortable. I would like it to be about 15 degrees warmer, so I can thaw out my old, cold bones.

    Went and looked at a friends trailer today as a prospect for a cheap hauler for us...



    It's got a few years beneath it's wheels, it certainly needs some TLC to be pretty again, and it has stock trailer roots, but it's a 3 horse slant as it stands, it's mechanically and physically solid as a rock, and I'm handy enough to make her shine again.

    Thinking thinking....

    Got the call...dad has pneumonia...he's been admitted to,the hospital...he gets it often....hope he hangs in there.....I'll go check on him tomorrow. Hospital maybe the best place for,him! They can regulate his meds.

    Prayers and positive thoughts please.

    Cross your fingers!

    I'm going in the morning to look at a horse. She's a 7yo TWH. Supposed to be a real mellow girl. I'll keep you posted!
