It's a 1948 Chevrolet heavy half ton. Wonderful machine and fun to drive!
My husband has had it for many years. We keep it in the quonset most of the time to protect from the elements.

Cool truck Prairie Rose!

I hope everyone is enjoying a pleasant Sunday. I woke up very grumpy seeing 3 " of fresh snow on the ground. It is just warm enough to leave a sucking mucky, snowy, icy mess in the yard, yet cold enough for the snow to stay. It is one of those days where the weather gods are in a full out battle. It is sunny and melting and snowing all at once. So strange...

In an attempt to conquer the winter (it should be spring) blahs, my daughter and I hauled our horses to the stable where she works and went riding. Both horses were awesome and we had a lovely ride. I am so grateful to have the horses as a source of enjoyment, but I am even more grateful to have a wonderful daughter to share this passion with.

Hi all!

Wanted to pop in to see if there was an update from Corgi on her dad. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way lady!

Love all these new pics, its so fun to see everyone's lives and how different we all are.

Havent seen my girl in over a week, she got her teeth floated last Monday so got the week off. Can't wait to ride on Wed and Th...I have two of three dressage tests memorized, so I can start fine tuning our ride. 30 days until our first big show! We also have our last schooling show next Saturday, which is a bunch of fun. The ladies I ride with, ranging from 14 up to my age, are such lovely riders and fun people. Show season is going to be a blast!

ETA: meant to ask also, Hunter, how's your arm??

Hey everyone...wish I could respond to everyone and their posts, but my mind is scrambled and I am not thinking clearly. But I am enjoying all the pics everyone is posting!

My dad is not doing well at all. Yesterday was really rough but today a sense of peace came over me. I have accepted that he may die and I will be ok of that happens. I will still hope for the best but I am ready for the worst.

My husband is doing his best to take care of me. He is making sure I rest amd trying to get me to eat but the eating part is not easy. I discovered I am NOT a stress eater. It is the exact opposite. The thought of food makes me ill. I am trying to eat but to be honest, I am not eating enough. I know that but I don't know how to fix it. I have lost 6 pounds and while I probably need to lose that 6 pounds and another 5 with it, I know it is not healthy the way it has come off.

Snce they flew Dad to the University of Virginia hospital, I am able to drive back and forth from home, about 1.5 hours away. This allows me to spend some time with Isabella. She has forgiven me for being gone for 11 days and we had such a pleasant visit this evening, she even made funny faces to cheer me up. Here is my girl...and thanks everyone for your concern and prayers. Much appreciated.

Corgi-tough times for sure-I hear you about not eating, but you need something-do you like milkshakes,or something like an Orange Julius? Hope things take a turn for the better & glad you were able to see your horse for a bit. Prayers sent to you & yours.
