[QUOTE=With Grace;1564628]Stan - your post had me laughing so hard my dog was looking at me funny...thank goodness you did go on your cattle drive fully clothed. Sorry to hear about Stella's leg, hope it heals up quickly. I'm sure her new cover and reins will make her feel better, a girl always likes new accessories.
Intuition is a great thing and you seem to have it down to a fine art. The new reins were to be made if I got the silent treatment. I am about to do the dishes, then I will start the reins, only take a couple of hours but I will make it stretch out for two nights.
I do have a ace up my sleeve. She who must be obeyed used my 4x4 this morning when she went riding, and brought it back broke. Well that's the impression I have got her to believe.
What happened is the oil filler cap has come out and the engine has spewed oil all over itself. Of course I, in my most knowing voice, asked why she could not smell the oil and does she realise how expensive oil is, and the cost of repairs could mount up.
Tomorrow I take a day off work and will go shopping for the part, and what else takes my fancy
. What I did not mention was. The last person to play with the oil filler cap was me last weekend.
I am a couple of years older than the boss, but it still goes to show it don't pay to mess with us older folk we have the ability to turn a disadvantage into an advantage. Go the wrinklies.
