Just thought I might mention something that made my day last week: saw my first wolf for the very first time while out on the trail with my husband! The moment was exactly that but, I will treasure it forever!

What a great experience on horse back and wild animals. The best we get is the ocassional wild pig which the horses don't like, and generally play up when they hear or smell them, and of course a lot of road kill, possums.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

Cooking, or more to the point firmented food.

Any one got a good recipe for Kimchi.

I made a recipe of the net on Saturday and sampled it tonight, it was nice but hot, and I really mean hot. It sort of crept up on me and by the time I had finished the small sample I had the task of dousing the fire.

So all, any good recipes for kimchi. In keeping with the thread, Horses. Stella is on the mend around her butt. I took a photo of her in the weekend and it showed improvment when compared to last week. New fine hair is growing on her rump and around the girth area.

Don't forget the recipe.

The dark area on her lower rump and shoulders is the new hair. Looks like I don't get to paint her rear.

Cheers all
Its Tuesday night and time to iron my shirt for work tomorrow.

The Dangers of Dangling Participles

We've all had trouble with our animals, but I don't think anyone can top this one:

Calling in sick to work makes me uncomfortable. No matter how legitimate my excuse, I always get the feeling that my boss thinks I'm lying.

On one recent occasion, I had a valid reason but lied anyway, because the truth was just too darned humiliating. I simply mentioned that I had sustained a head injury, and I hoped I would feel up to coming in the next day. By then, I reasoned, I could think up a doozy to explain the bandage on the top of my head.


The accident occurred mainly because I had given in to my wife's wishes to adopt a cute little kitty.


Initially, the new acquisition was no problem.

Then one morning, I was taking my shower after breakfast when I heard my wife, Deb, call out to me from the kitchen.

"Honey! The garbage disposal is dead again. Please come reset it."

"You know where the button is," I protested through the shower pitter-patter and steam. "Reset it yourself!"

"But I'm scared!" she persisted. "What if it starts going and sucks me in?"

There was a meaningful pause and then, "C'mon, it'll only take you a second."

So out I came, dripping wet and butt naked, hoping that my silent outraged nudity would make a statement about how I perceived her behaviour as extremely cowardly.

Sighing loudly, I squatted down and stuck my head under the sink to find the button. It is the last action I remember performing.

It struck without warning, and without any respect to my circumstances. No, it wasn't the hexed disposal, drawing me into its gnashing metal teeth. It was our new kitty, who discovered the fascinating dangling objects she spied hanging there.


She had been poised around the corner and stalked me as I reached under the sink. And, at the precise moment when I was most vulnerable, she leapt at the toys I unwittingly offered and snagged them with her needle-like claws.


I lost all rational thought to control orderly bodily movements, blindly rising at a violent rate of speed, with the full weight of a kitten hanging from my masculine region.

Wild animals are sometimes faced with a "fight or flight" syndrome. Men, in this predicament, choose only the "flight" option. I know this from experience. I was fleeing straight up into the air when the sink and cabinet bluntly and forcefully impeded my ascent.


The impact knocked me out cold.

When I awoke, my wife and the paramedics stood over me.

Now there are not many things in this life worse than finding oneself lying on the kitchen floor butt naked in front of a group of "been-there, done-that" paramedics.


Even worse, having been fully briefed by my wife, the paramedics were all snorting loudly as they tried to conduct their work, all the while trying to suppress their hysterical laughter......and not succeeding.

Somehow I lived through it all. A few days later I finally made it back in to the office, where colleagues tried to coax an explanation out of me about my head injury. I kept silent, claiming it was too painful to talk about, which it was.

"What's the matter?" They all asked, "Cat got your tongue?"

If they only knew!


Why is it that only the women laugh at this?







Remember you asked for it
Now back to my corner
Stan: bwahahhahaha!!

My husband told me about an elderly man who went into the hospital for a minor surgery and some tests. He was still dopey and had an oxygen mask on when the new nurse came in with the shift change.

He asked, in a groggy muffled voice, "Are my testicles black?"

The nurse stopped, cocked her head and said, "Excuse me, Sir?"

The man again asked, "Are my testicles black?"

The nurse looked at his chart, back at him, and in a voice filled with confusion said, "I'm sorry, what?"

The man, asked again, a little louder, "Are my testicles black?"

The nurse walked over, lifted the sheet, took a peek, and said, "No, sir. They look fine to me."

The man, in exasperation yanks his oxygen mask off and shouts, "NO!! Are my TEST RESULTS BACK??!!"


In keeping with the thread, my two very good boys are doing well. It's the start of fall, so that means a good worming is in order and when it dries up, it's time to start scraping those dreaded bot eggs off. (I really do despise those things).

You mentioned no snow. We're in northeast Alabama, in the foothills of the beautiful Appalachian Mountains, so we do occasionally get a snow. It's a treat for us. The kiddos get out of school, we play and make all the snow cream the freezer will hold.

It's good to catch up with you guys, and after my little post on dangling participles, I'll go back to my corner. :)

PS: Your girls are beautiful. Yay for Stella growing some new hair!!

There is no better smell on the face of this earth than that of a sweet, warm horse, and no sound better than the creak of a good old saddle.

[QUOTE=Stan;1703904]Cooking, or more to the point firmented food.

I've eaten Kimchi all my life. A Korean woman taught my mother to make it when my Dad was stationed in Idaho (he was in the USAF). I don't make it, but I do buy an occasional jar from the produce section of our grocery store. I LOVE it.

I don't have a recipe for Kimchi, but you can make an incredible spicy beef salad by marinating your thinly sliced steak in it, cooking it until just done and then make a salad our of romaine, tomato, cucumber, onion and shredded kimchi. Add your steak and serve with hot rice. Fantastic!!
