Just stopping in to say Hi to everybody-I am desperately trying to re-coup my energy & get well before I have to drive to CA, then fly to Oregon, I have to drive there on the 15th, & before that I have to make sure DH has all he needs to get by for the length of time I will be gone-probably about 10 days, as I will spend a couple of Days in CA before heading back here. I need to get one of those rolling carry-on bags, as I really don't want to haul my old style luggage anymore. Even though I pack light-it's still too heavy & I have a long ways to walk when I get to Portland.

Lori-glad to hear you are getting back in the saddle so soon! Hope your recovery continues to go well. Ducks are so cute, but , they can sure be messy. I'm looking forward to getting some chickens soon. After we build the coop & run-LOL.

Popping in after paying bills (yuck, no way yet to pay for lessons...)

I'll not pounce on Stan, simply rephrase him now & again. I almost had bunny for dinner this morning, via car tires...didn't hit the little fuzzy thing, & would've been stinky by today after work, being in the car trunk. Besides, need Stan to show me how to skin/gut/cook it. Would've been tenderized anyway.

Rick, I'll always be your right-hand Officer and can pressurize the wound one of your guys may incur...and talk them down from the pain! Oh,if someone gets funky, God forbid, I'd deal w/that one too. Yeah, I see your point: "welder designated", yeah, & unwritten supv. Got it. I feel better today.

Have to go get ready for tomorrow. I'm asking for next Wed-Thurs for vac days, as I'd like the time to get out my sister's picture, and before the assistant chief goes AWOL (retires) & schedule might change. Fingers crossed, I need the time (director is still "considering" the 4-10s. Good grief...)

Now it's not nice to talk about your family members like that!

Stan, Opossum is better off the Bar-B. Boil it before wrapping in foil, leaving only the tail out and dropped on the grill. Leave on for 25 minutes then hold the tail and push the foil off towards the head instead of unwrapping and it will take the skin with the foil. Leaving a ready to eat meal.
1) I would like to draw attention to the fact that an opossum is a different critter than a possum. The opossum is a placental mammal, the possum an Australian marsupial. The opossum is more closely related to the elephant than the possum. They probably taste quite different.

2) You're sissies, cooking your roadkill.

Hi all. This thread moves fast. I have to back track a ways to keep up. Did I miss the pictures of the cooked possum? 4 th lesson last night. Trotted most of it. Horse behaved. Trainer lost track of time as did I. Can't hardly walk today. Feels like I did a 100 sit-ups. It was a good night. Hope you all are well.

Red face Dreamed of Owning a Percheron over 32 years Please help

a long time for one for over 32 years now, hopefully a black one. I am dreaming for one like yours to hopefully come into my life. Let me explain to you a little bit of who I am. My name is Tracy and I am 51 yrs old . I have my own farm here. I have a six stall barn and 8 open acres.Your horse would get plenty of attention and lots and lots of love here. I am on disability because I am a breast cancer survivor. I did loose both sides to it, and I have had 27 surgeries. But since I am on disability, I have lots of time on my hands, to devote my heart and soul to your beautiful baby. Now my big problem, since my only income is my disability, I don't have all that money, but can I please, please ask you, if you would consider letting me make payments to you.? I can show you my disability awards letter to prove to you on what I get each month. Or maybe we can work out something. I know how hard it is letting go of something that you love so much. But I can promise you, that he will be taken care of very well, and have lots of LOVE. You could even come and see him and time. God Bless

Welcome back, Rob. Glad your ride lesson went so well and as we mentioned yesterday about aching and sore muscles, they are that way because we used them. Its a good thing.

Breyerhillsfarm, welcome and I hope you are able to find your black gelding percheron.

Sue, I'm not sure what kind of miniature elephants you have in the down under to compare to the opossum, but ours is not much different then your possum. It is the scavenger rat of the woods and hangs from tree limbs with its tail to sleep.

Here is a picture of my reference.

Hey Roadyy, that's an example of convergent evolution: Two very unrelated animals that have similar appearances because they occupy similar ecological niches in different places! And it's your opossum that's the mini-elephant, rather than our possum!
