Happy birthday Grace!

I went to the theatre yesterday to see Mrs Brown's Boys, a comedy series that is on TV - well, I had to take my glasses off I was laughing so hard they kept steaming up.

Honestly, the cast were all trying not to laugh but there was a lot of ad libbing and most of them were biting their cheeks or knuckles of their hand to stop from laughing. Mostly it didn't work because there were many breaks in the dialogue whilst they got themselves together - which, every time they did Mrs Brown either made a funny face or a quick remark and off they would go again.
I think that what made it so enjoyable was the fact that they were all enjoying themselves so much. After all laughter is infectious and it was something the whole theatre caught.
My sides hurt from laughing so hard. It was a brilliant end to a really not so nice day.

We had over 2" of rain yesterday from 7 a.m. - 4.30 p.m. And then a further 3/4 " over night.

The horses were all so miserable, shaking from the cold that we brought them all in. They were sure glad to get inside. Em went out on the ATV to let them down and as soon as they saw her they were at the gates and galloped down and up into the barns. Not a halter on one of them - they all just went into their correct stables knowing that if they played up they might be taken back out.

When the rain stopped, at about 6.30 p.m. The winds increased and several leafy branches were being blown off the trees.

Not a lot more news.

Yes indeed! In fact I had several! One at my inlaws, one at my parents, one in Vegas and one yesterday. I've gained about 5 pounds in the last week, and I'm sure Kes could tell this morning!

Susan - I am in love with your Sophie - every pic makes me fall deeper She's just lovely!

Chance - How exciting about Ruby! Either option sounds like it would work out great for you. Pics? Do you have tack for her, or does she come with her own? Does she come with all her necessities? I was amazed after purchasing Kes how much I needed for her. And it is still being purchased, it might not ever end. Today it was bell boots and organic fly spray in a roller, and of course more vet wrap which I buy a few rolls of every time I go to the feed store.

CW - Sorry you didnt get to the barn, this rain is just depressing!

Fox - speaking of rain, wow that's a lot in one day. Days like those make me want to close the shades and go back to bed. Glad you were able to get some laughter in at the show! Brit humor is the best, it's one of the types of humor that I find really funny (I don't enjoy comedians or sit coms, for some reason I just don't find them funny)

Had a great ride with Kes today. Our trainer came out and we had her flexing and bending on circles, in a snaffle. She still doesn't respect the snaffle, but I could see a difference in her from the last time I rode. I also have got to learn to keep my leg off her, she's got such a sensitive side that if I roll my knees out just a hair, she picks up on it and wants to go, which right now is charging, and not good. I have another training session tomorrow, and then will give her Sunday off.

Want to say that I love this forum. I read it every night when I get home from work. A lot of the people on here were very supportive when I posted a couple of weeks ago about riding Judy Judy Big Ears, my rescue standardbred for the first time. Its so nice to have people that understand. I'll keep this short because Iv'e tried to post several times but my "smart"phone eats the post when I try to send it. So yes I'm over 50 :) if you can view my profile picture that is Judy Judy Big Ears, also known as Juju, the big J and pushy pushy pig with my granddaughter Chloe, also known as granny's monster. So here goes another try to post.

Oobiedoo: I remember Judy Big Ears! I just got a rescue standardbred for my little boy. I love them!

I am taking Patsy to a horse show today at Faustman ranch in Dayton. It is a special series...there are four classes....trail, extreme trail, arrow and horsemanship.
We will see how we do, but intend to have some fun no matter what!!
