    Good Morning..... Night!

    GOOD FOR YOU NICKER. Your hopes and heart all set... your head and gut did the right thing.

    I DON'T SNOOR! At least that's what I tell my wife after she has beaten the sleep out of me.

    Not much else to report. Rain stopped on cue yesterday morning. Pool looks good. Birds and chicks doing well. Dogs didn't bark. Sereno was a good boy coming home last night with NO fuss at all while we continued to review our ground manners. Mare Cera was good. Chican didn't want to come home.... but he belongs to someone else so I didn't care. Lol.

    Oh. Our Mare has not come into season for 5 weeks since we let Sereno have a little ... you know! Fingers crossed.

    Talk later. Have a good one!

    NM71, you told them from the beginning that you had a set goal for the horse you are looking for. They are out there because I have one that cost 1/4 of what the asking price was on the Dun. I understand them being frustrated about going through all the riggermaramous of showing him when he wasn't going to at first due to being out of the initial price range, but not to the point of being that rude with you. Especially since y'all have known each other a while. They knew what you wanted and should have told you up front about how he was under saddle.

    Glad the dog is doing better and hope you have a wonderful time on the quads.


    PrairieRose, thank you and glad you enjoyed it. I will try to find the video of the Fire Boats we built for NYCFD. Those things are impressive. One named "343" and the other is "FireFighter2.

    Stan, glad I could remind you of times past. Hope the grass is still growing instead of knots.


    Nvr2many, put some kinda small ball under his neck if he sleeps on his back, under his arm if on his side. Works on my wife. Took her a few weeks to figure how a ball kept getting in the bed. I told her she was really kinky when she started sleep sexing. She didn't appreciate the humor in it either.


    Sereno, glad everything is going smoothly over yonder. I know you will keep us updated on the stages of the pregnancy.


    Here are updated pics of the trailer work last night before my daughter's ex bf came over. They have some future plans they are forced to discuss and it went very well.

    With thinner metal it takes a lot more time to weld it due to warping. Weld a little here, move way over there and weld a little, move again and weld a little.


    While cleaning out the stuff in the red horse trailer with the ex SIL I noticed they did the same shortcut as the PO of the white trailer. Please people, DO NOT put plywood down on the floor of a trailer. If you see signs of rust starting then go get rust stopper and coat the both sides of the trailer instead of covering it up. It holds the moisture between the wood and metal which speeds up the rusting. There are so many products out there you can spray it down with that will turn all rusted areas into solid form again.

    Hope everyone has a great day and look forward to interacting with you.

    The easiest thing to do when the snoring starts up is to get up and go sleep in the spare bedroom. At first it hurts their feelings. Then they figure out that you aren't poking them in the ribs all night.

    Hey everyone...just wanted to pop in and say that I have been reading and trying to keep up. This is my favorite place to be on the internet! You all crack me up!

    I am down at my parents house again. Trying to "spring" dad from the rehab facility. He is now able to walk, talk, eat, and take care of himself. Think it is time for him to come home and do outpatient therapy. Heading over to the facility in about an hour and push the issue. I am not real happy with the attitude of the administrator over there and the way he has treated my Mom when she has questions. Watch out! I am a very easy going person who normally doesn't make waves but when I feel a loved one has been wronged, I see red and can turn into quite the witch!

    Jealous of all the trailers! Even the ones that need so much work. I am trailerless.

    Nicker, I had the same experience with a horse I went to see before I bought Isabella. I was so nervous on her, my gut just told me she was too much horse for me. When I first got on Isabella, it felt right. Your horse is out there somewhere!

    Sereno...i admit I laughed when I imagined your stallion heading for the poor donkey, and taking you along for the ride but I am sorry about your rope burn. Very painful!

    Roady...very cool video!

    Alex, happy Anniversary!

    And I will end with a picture I took of Isabella on Sunday. She has kept her fly mask on for 2 weeks and I had to take a pic to commemerate the moment! I was growing real tired of walking the pasture searching for the mask every time I went out there. I guess she finally realized its worth!

    Have a great day!

    Lol. You DID read a lot!

    I hope that all goes well concerning your father. Perhaps you should take the fly mask off of Isabella and put it on the Admin.

    Like the photo and hearing from you.

    I see that you are in VA. Fairfax County 1950's into early 1970's before everything built on and up. Didn't recognize the area when I visited in 1995.

    I am about 40 miles down Interstate 95 from Fairfax. It is just crazy up there and the craziness is slowly creeping south. I moved to VA in 1991 to teach and lived off of 95 in Stafford. I am now in a more rural area about 10 miles west of the interstate and when I drive back up to Stafford, I don't recognize it anymore.

    They are working on bringing the HOV lanes of 95 all the way down to Fredericksburg from DC. I am sure the area has changed even more since you were last here in 1995.

    Hence, the reason why hubby and I want to move out west! Montana or Colorado maybe. Arizona is a possibility too. Just need to finish 8 more years of work so I can have my full 30 years in the Virginia Retirement System!

    Corgi, I'm really glad your dad is doing better and hope you can get him in a better place with your mom. Good luck and keep us updated, please. Thank you.

    I just love being here too! You all make a person feel better.... And take minds off our 'issues'....and keep us from getting work done. I'm supposed to be preparing for a sub!

    I awoke this morning still feeling a bit about how I was treated yesterday....although I know these people are traditionally 'coarse', it doesn't sting any less.

    Talked to the girl who went with me....she basically gave me a kick in the pants and said in her experience "horse people are just extremely opinionated" and 'Their way is the right way' (hmmm, is SHE being opinionated???) .....yes, I agree that many of them around here at least are....but to me, doesn't make it right or less rude. I'm slowing growing a thicker skin....

    She also thinks I am 'too eager' to find a horse, and want it to happen NOW (like YEAH!) ....it will just happen....I KNOW, I KNOW......but it doesn't make it any easier... and I AM TRYING to be patient.

    Thanks for putting up with my whining! lol:

    I think I said it before...I never thought shopping for a horse would be so 'emotionally' draining....but like I said before, it's like dating, finding that 'one' and telling the others they ain't IT is HARD!!!!! I was never good at that....I just wouldn't answer the phone or call back! Hahaha

    Any who....I better get some work done so I can skeedattle at the end of the day and head for camp!! Campfires, good friends (who don't judge), good food, miles on the trail, and tipping a few back is JUST what this girl needs!

    OH, and Roadyy.....VERY cool video!!

    Corgi, good luck with Dad!

    To a GREAT weekend all! Happy Trails!

    NM71, you have a blast this weekend, doll. Don't worry about us who you are leaving behind as not "The One". We will find a way to manage, heck we might even have some fun without you..haha.
