    Hi all!

    I'm so far behind on my reading here I'm not sure I'll catch up...

    Corgi - so wonderful to hear your dad is doing better!

    Stan - is it not an option to keep both bugs and stella? They look quite happy together!

    Have been busy with sick kids and a sick dog this week. My little min pin was vomitting for two days, so had to take her in to get fluids and some anti nausea. She's finally doing better but has little bladder control and is on medication to help it, and we also confirmed she is losing her sight and her hearing. My poor pup. She slept in with me this morning, and as I went to move her over, she yelped and tried to bite me. This is not her at all, I am thinking she's in pain somewhere and we may not have her for much longer :(

    Sun might poke out today...would be nice since we havent seen it since Sunday.

    You have a son? If not then you may need to find a rent-a-son.. I assume your hubby is coming with you that will be the two hired men...

    I doubt I'd even have time to come visit while you are over there. Us Po-Folks stay busy to keep from having to spend hard earned monies on hired help...

    Although you would be invited out to the house to go for a little horse back riding while you are here. There is a couple of very nice trails along the Ecofina creek Water Management area.
    Econfina Creek

    There is about 40 miles of trails back in there around the natural spring fed creek along with a few natural springs. 65* water year round. Beautiful scenery.

    With Grace, I hope the kids get well soon and the min pin is able to find comfort while healing. Hope it doesn't come to being PTS to rid the pain and discomfort. Maybe the sun will come out and bring a smile and happiness to everyone in the house...


    Thoughts and prayers are with you, hun.

    This doesn't relate to horses, but I know how difficult teens can be, and how hard it is to control the situation. My middle daughter was a very good little girl, til she turned 14, and then she just went wild, got involved with a 17 year old boy, who was wild and from a very dysfunctional family. He began beating her on a regular basis, but she would run right back to him. I would try my best to discipline her, but she would call the cops, saying I was beating her, which was a lie. I would try grounding her, that didn't work, the cops said, if she didn't want to be grounded, no one could make her!!! LOL! The boyfriend set my house on fire, and went to prison. She was pregnant, had her baby, and we are very close now. She is now married with 4 kids. Sometimes, they just need to grow up. My heart goes out to all of you, because I have BEEN THERE!!!

    WG, I am very sorry about your baby. I hope he gets to feeling better. And Roadyy, wouldn't it be great if we mature over 40's were in the position to have a meet and greet? Would be such fun times, stories, riding, sounds like a blast!

    Come on PNW sun and warmth!!! We were teased a week or so ago with 80* weather. Now it is 55. Not a fan!

    Thanks Roaddy and nvr2many - she's 11, so I'm prepared for the worst. I hope she can hang on awhile, but I'm willing to let her go when the time comes, be it sooner or later. She's been a sweet and loyal friend since we rescued her at two, and both hubby and I agreed we wont let her suffer to keep her with us.

    Nvr2many - a big 40's get together would be so much fun..maybe one day we could plan one. Or regional get togethers or something...

    Thumbs up long ride

    A meet and greet would be a blast. However how many of us have the months of free time it would take as a collective to get the rides in and finish swapping stories, experiences, and general partying.

    I drink beer, not a lot, I spill most of it down my front. It does not go to waste. At my shoes Roslyn places a bowl to catch all of the drips. Beer i'm talking about, I'm not that far gone. That's the beer I use to cook my leg of lamb in. Aged meat and Aged beer what a combo I have a special shirt for drinking and it says. I do every thing the voices in my wifes head tell me to do.

    As Roadyy has put out there. I also have a spare room and a sleepout so if anyone is heading this way your welcome to come stay awhile. Not sure about AlexS though we might end up killing each other arguing over the merrits of the young we have encountered. But i'm game.

    As for keeping Stella and Bugs one has to go. Roslyn won't ride Stella because she is to big and I won't let her on Bugs just yet. She is also looking for her replacement for Kate and that is going to be very difficulte.

    What has happened to PB and Montana. If memory serves me PB has a girl friend, must be just 40, still has stamina. And Montana went riding the outback. Long ride.

    Cheers all
    Time for breakfast, and it is still raining off and on.
