Wow, I go away for a 48hr Cruise and come back to what seems like 25 pages of new posts!

No way I can respond to everything, but here are a few:

Grace, sorry about your pup. They are so much a part of our family that we always want to do what we can to keep them with us as long as possible. You will know when it is time to let go. If the pain pills work and don't have any bad side effects, no reason they can't be used long term.

Horse Dad- congrats on the horse! Exciting times!

Alex, I am sorry. But don't give up hope. There is always a chance! Until you are told there is no way it can happen, you have to believe it COULD.

We had a lot of fun on our cruise. It was only two days. It had been almost 10 years since I have cruised and I had forgotten how much food there is. I feel like I gained 10 pounds in 48 hours. I only had 3 "adult" beverages while on board and was in bed by 10 last night while my friends hung out in the casino. I must be getting old. I did dance in the nightclub the first night and lasted until 12:30am. So, maybe I am not TOO old. I just can't do it two nights in a row.

Had such a nice ride on Isabella tonight when I got home. She was so calm and didn't give me one single argument. I was calm and confident and she must have sensed it. We were all alone at the farm and it was so relaxing.

I hope to ride again tomorrow since it is a holiday and I have the day off! The weather is supposed to be wonderful.

Hi all

Thanks for all the support with my pup. It means a lot.

I ended up getting the stomach flu Friday evening, so didn't get to go away this weekend. The hubby woke up with it at 2 am this morning. Horrible. And Lizzie would not leave my side. Had to bring up her food and water dishes so shed at least eat something. That is how loyal this dog is. She laid with me for 24 hours straight...I'm just not ready to let her go. She doesn't seem to be in pain with the meds.


Corgi- so awesome you had a great cruise, that sounds like so much fun and waaay more fun than I've been having these last couple days! Your ride on Isabella sounds like the perfect way to end your vacation.

Stan- your jokes were much needed over the past couple days!

Alex- I'm sorry you're dealing with so much right now and I don't think it's unreasonable at all that you had to buy a pack. It's hard enough going through such emotional situations, throwing in stopping smoking I don't think anyone could do it! Hang in there lady, you're in my thoughts.

It takes a man to come up with the solution.

Go and feed the animals now. They will love you for the late night feast then into the scratcher and sleep in a little.

When I owned my fishing boat the crew often moaned about not having enough time early in the morning for a decent breakfast. My reply was have breakfast before going to bed. That will give you an extra half hour in the morning to convince your employer you really were worth employing. Sorted that problem.

The male Cycle:







When I was 13, I hoped that one day I would have a girlfriend with big Ta Ta's.

When I was 16, I got a girlfriend with big Ta Ta's, but there was no passion, so I decided I needed a passionate girl with zest for life.

At University I dated a passionate girl, but she was too emotional. Everything was an emergency; she was a drama queen, cried all the time and threatened suicide. So I decided I needed a girl with stability.

When I was 25, I found a very stable girl, but she was boring. She was totally predictable and never got excited about anything. Life became so dull that I decided that I needed a girl with some excitement.

When I was 28, I found an exciting girl, but I couldn't keep up with her. She rushed from one thing to another, never settling on anything. She did mad impetuous things and made me miserable as often as happy.. She was great fun initially and very energetic, but directionless. So I decided to find a girl with some real ambition.

When I turned 30, I found a smart ambitious girl with her feet planted firmly on the ground, so I married her. She was so ambitious that she divorced me and took everything I owned.

I'm much older and wiser now, and I'm looking for a girl with big Ta Ta's

The Reverend John Fluff

The Reverend John Fluff was the pastor in a small town
In Ireland . One day he was walking down the high street
When he noticed a young lady of his congregation sitting
In a pub drinking beer. The Reverend wasn't happy!
He walked through the open door of the pub and sat
Down next to the woman. "Miss Fitzgerald," he said sternly
- "This is no place for a member of my congregation.
Why don't you let me take you home?"
"Sure!" she said with a slur, obviously very drunk.
When Miss Fitzgerald stood up from the bar, she began to weave back and forth. The Reverend realized that she'd had far too much to drink and grabbed her arms to steady her.

When he did, they both lost their balance and tumbled
To the floor. After a few moments, the Reverend wound up on top of Miss Fitzgerald, her skirt hiked up to her waist.
The pub landlord looked over and said, "Oy mate, we won't have any of that carrying on in this pub."
The Reverend looked up at the landlord and said, "But you don't understand. I'm Pastor Fluff."
The landlord said, "Ah well,
ye might as well finish."








O/K i'm siting in the corner
