Critter Sitter, I'm so sorry for what you and you're family are going through. I'm in a very similar situation with my BIL right now. Sadly they live many miles away. He has been fighting this for many years and is near the end now. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Susan, how are you doing?
Stan, please keep making us laugh!
CW, keep nagging at that barn. In the meantime is there any way you could just go spend time there?
To everyone else, best wishes! I've had a wonderful time camping with a group of other horsewomen for the past several days. Loved it, but now I'm exhausted and have a ton of housework to catch up on and get back to work tomorrow night.
