    I wish I didn't do that, but sometimes I do. I try hard not to do it, and I think being aware of it does help to lessen it.

    I wish I were a better person at times. But then he brings home his work stress too and I sit looking at him like he has three heads because his issue seems like nothing if I had to get in between a kid fight or whatever that night. I guess no one is perfect.
    Kids if I had my time again I doubt if children would have come into the equasion. Mine are married with children and they keep on arriving at the door.

    Cooking is this a female trait. I cook a steak, mine 2 inches thick and Roslyn insists she can not eat a New York cut and has her steak three quarters of an inch thick.

    SO last night I did a scotsh fillet roast, 5 inches across, seared all round, covered it with a mix of americian mustard, garlic, oil and beer. Then finished it in the oven cooked to just on rare in the middle. A few panfried spuds, and beans and carrots. Brown gravey with mushroom and a hint of blue cheese in the mix.

    Here is my delema. Wife wont eat a steak more than three quarters of an inch thick, then how come when I carved the steak into thin slices she ate almost half of the roast. New York cut 2 inches thick. Go figure

    Dental treatment for the horse, does the expence of owning a horse ever reduce to a managable level or like a teenager there is always something to pay out for.

    A day off work today, lucky i'm a governement employee I get to take leave on pay and take Bugs to the dentist. But it washes out in the end, I did 12 hours on Monday coupled with the rest of the week of 8 hours each today has cost me only 4 hours and if I get up early on Saturday and instead of riding a horse go to work for 4 hours all will be even. Except for the bill expected to be in the hundreds. I'm not sure which cost the most, keeping a wife happy or the horse. The choices a man has to make. Enough of the rambling I hear you scream. I know into the corner again for the cheep shot

    Back to the dentist I'll get a better idea of his age. We put him at rising 7 years but with the high pitched voice I have my doubts. I'll get a few photos should have character to them.

    How is the economy affecting you all. NZ has to be one of the most expensive country to live. Exported meat from here is cheaper overseas than in NZ also milk. Our housing cost is through the roof and unaffordable by the average couple now. You can't give away a v8 and 6 cylinder cars are well down in price, but we can not afford the fuel to run them.
    I have told my employer we should do our job on horse back. Tied up in a paddock the offenders could colect the droppings. A barrow load a day for the average horse. And bag it. Now that would give those that have been sentenced to community service some thing meaningful to do and the governement could sell the pony poo for a few dollars a bag thus killing two birds with one stone. Providing community service for those convicted and making money to self fund the horses.

    But no it would not be polictically correct to have convicted persons shovelling flark into bags without safety equipment, yet we do it all the time without getting sick. And the convicted persons tell a lot of Flark when mounting a defence for their wrong doing.

    That should have taken your mind off the cheep shot earlier so now its catch Bugs give him a wash, a cut and pollish and off we go. To the dentist.

    Cheers all.

    It wouldn't hurt them to shovel a little flark anyway.

    My kids shovel flark all the time. They actually rather shovel manure than clean up dog poop from the yard, which they choose to just mow over instead. One day someone will get sprayed in the face by mowing over it - I do hope I see it when it happens.

This time of year is so freaking slow :( And here I am buying a horse before I have sold the other .. I have had people out to look at her and even have a girl who wants her *bad* but no money in hand yet.....
    I had someone ask me UMMM why have you had her teeth floated?? She is so young for that... umm she is 6 and most horses need them done by then.. and this was a "horse person " who asked..
    Had a couple men come and took 2 hours of my time and poked and prodded rode and even measured her with a correct measuring device.. I thought for sure they wanted her and the young man would have been a great home for her... nope uggggg lord help me.

    My day at the dentist here I am in the waiting room

    005.jpg

    Can't feel my mouth I wish I d'nt have that last drink

    007.jpg

    Oops felt that one.

    And finally when I came too I decided not to get in the float, well for a while. Trouble was as I lined up the entrance it kept moving.

    And finally he behaved himself even when under the drugs, when told to move backwards he did, well sort of, it was one step back and wobble to the side. Dentist said he was only 5 also pulled a wolf tooth out so that should even out his mouth in relation to the bit.
