    I have not been able to ride, drive or do a lot of things for several months. Cataracts. Had my eyes done in Feb. Then came down with Dengue Fever a week after the operation. Got an inner ear infection that, while sitting up in bed I'd fall over. At one point felt sorta better and had to tend a horse and she decided to play tag with her hove and my shoulder.

    I'm JUST starting to feel better, Dengue has no cure and takes 3 months or so to recover from. So I got a little.... NAY... WAY to much time on my hands.

    So ENJOY me while you can cause..... I WILL be getting back into the saddle.

    (cool, I just learned how to do multi quotes.)
    Prayer said for you. I hope that you feel better soon.

    .................
    What are some of your favorite lines?

    "Toes up… toes up!" "My toes ARE up." "Then put yor heals down." "Oh."
    Sure you can ride with me. Now shudup.
    Ya ride any closer to my horse ya going to be warren his shoe for a long time.
    Ya go any slower on that mare and I'll be riding 2 horses.
    Q: "Do you see the World differently while riding a horse?" A: "If I didn't, I shouldn't be on one."
    You're going to do what to his what with THAT?
    No I'm NOT getting off my horse (Paso Fino) to help up crawl up the side of your tall TB.
    I KNOW that you are a good rider! I've seen you and all the "circle club" riders going around that coral for years.
    Thanks for telling me about that branch…. (after you let it go.)
    Oh ya… that will work. I'll stand over THERE so I can watch and learn.
    Nice rig you got there. (hooked up to a class II hitch on your fancy 4 cly BMW.)
    His rearing at ya is just his way of sayin "HI, so happy to see you!".
    He'll stop…….. (right after he runs over you.)

    Share your favorite line please.
    Serenity, I think Stan would be happy to oblige.

    Wow...the over 40's crowd has been busy today!

    Taffy, that horse is amazing! It is on my bucket list to ride a large draft type horse one day.

    Grace, yay for getting hubby on your horse. I really enjoy riding with my hubby. I am more into riding than he is because he has so many other hobbies (hunting, fishing, golfing, boating) but he still rides with me at least once a week.

    Yay, also for all the new folks that have joined this thread.

    A deer decided to commit suicide tonight by running into the side of my brand new car!!! I have only made one payment on it. Lots and lots of damage. Thankful for full coverage insurance, but now I have to deal with insurance agent, repair shop, rental car. Etc.

    It has not been a fun month.

    Other than that, I had a pretty good day. The place I board Isabella is a Parelli barn. They don't ram it down our throats or anything but they host "playdays" once a month and we play the parelli games. I could take it or leave it but I do find it a great way to spend time with my horse and bond a bit. The "friendly" game is a way of desensitizing horses to all sorts of different things and get him/ her used to being touched all over and with different objects. It is a game we are really good at because she will let me do anything to her with very little complaint. Look at how patient she is with me.

    Welcome to our new members! With Grace-congrats on getting your DH up on your horse. And how nice that he now understands some of what it takes to ride a horse!

    Sure do like seeing the pictures of all the different areas that the rides are going through. We are such a diverse group.

    This is such a great thread-again, thank you CW for starting it!
