Yes it does seem to have slowed a little. Sorry Stan. Currently I'm doing more lurking than usual. Been a bad couple of weeks and it's nice to just "eavesdrop" on other's lives for a chuckle every now and then. As I'm new anyway I don't understand the carrot game. Perhaps you have the time to explain it to me? And Stan, when you refer to "she who must be obeyed" it took until your posting about the grumbly morning and coffee when I was sure she was your significant other and not the navigation system in your car! You are a wonderful story teller though and enjoy looking at pictures that you post. It's probably a very good thing that I don't live in your area. It's so beautiful that all I would ever do is what can be done from the back of a horse!
Good to hear from you Blue and is that the colour you like, or do you oringinate from Australia, Blue is a common name given to folks when one can not remember their name, it is also a saying when making a mistake, made a bluie, and also, the polite name given a ticket for a traffic offence that is going to cost money Recieved a bluie. Or your mood at the moment.
Talking about traffic tickets, ever noticed when reciving one, regardless of the amount stated on the Bluie, those of us with a little self control say thankyou to the cop handing out the ticket which is going to cost mega bucks. It is most annoying if it happens when one is towing the horse float. Not only does the ticket hurt the pocket so does towing the horse and of course when we get to our destination and the smile has gone, the reality of what we wanted to say to the cop has crept up on us the bloody horse decides to imulate our mood and plays up. Dose that not rock your boat and spoil the day just because we were nice to a cop. We now have one rider in a bad mood and a horse that has gone out in support. 1200 pounds of support I don't need.
Carrots you will have noticed now and again carrots pop up on the screen and one gets to place them in a basket. I believe you also have one.
The system will pop up a notice advicing that some other member has left their carrots un garded and give you the chance to swipe them. It happend to me the other day and it was a contributor to this thread DEE whoes carrots were ungarded. I resisted the temptation for a second and then went for it. I was to late, missed out. So as not to appear to much like a mythical creature I spilled my G--s and said sorry to Dee. Dee has a saying, she belives in unicorns dragons, good men, and other mythical creatures.
So in parting I trust that explains the carrot game.
Time to wake Stella. Oh, I also gave she who must be, a coffee to enjoy in bed this morning. Not a word, smile, or movment. Not even a grunt or even a glearing from the eye. Can't figure out what it is I have done wrong. I'm taking Stella to the vet today she is not going to like that. I give thanks for work tomorrow.
