    Criter, nice photos the last one he looks worried like he does not know what to do next. He would be a good paddock mate for Stella, they could work out together and shed a few pounds. I'll send her over.

    Grumbling
    A couple of Sundays ago our pastor was sermonizing on Philippians 14:2 in which Paul admonished the Philippians to “Do everything without grumbling.” Pastor said he wanted everyone to keep the verse in mind and try not to grumble during the coming week. The next Sunday he asked everyone in the congregation who had not grumbled during the week to raise their hand. I was the only one. “My wife wasn’t home last week,” I explained. “She was visiting her mother in California.”

    I poke fun at Joyce a lot and she accuses me of embellishing but I have to tell you, she is the best person I know. She is kind and honest and gentle hearted and a good sport. We have been married for more than eight years and have only had two arguments. The last one was a few weeks ago. I must have really pushed her buttons because she uncharacteristically lashed out at me and yelled, “You are self centered. You never think about anything but yourself! No wonder your children are just like you!”

    I replied, “Well duh-uh! I know I am. It's inherited. It’s very Christian to confess your character flaws you know.” It’s true the fruit didn’t fall very far from the tree. So anyway, a couple of nights ago I woke up at about 3:00 in the morning. I could just barely see a lump in the bed near my head. I reached out and patted Bo, my Jack Russell terrier on the head and then stroked him three or four times. It was weird; Joyce woke up wide awake from a sound sleep and said, “I’m not your ****ed dog!”


    When we went to church today I told pastor, "Joyce grumbled this week." His wife said, "You're lucky she didn't bite you."

    Stella is very fat and round like a barrell I could not use the rear cinch strap and The girth was a number of inches out from normal and muscle tone has gone so a lot of hill work to do. However I must give her credit she had not been ridden for months and I put a bitless bridle on which she has not experienced before, she behaved. I had told Roslyn to stand by in case she threw me. I don't bounce any more. I'm going to try and ride her out on her own this weekend for a few hours. She has muscle to build and a fat gut to get back in shape.

    Roslyn keeps telling me I'm out of shape, I respond with, how can that be, round is a shape.
    Ladytrails and AlexS like this.
