    Thanks you guys..scrolled thru pages&pages till I found Celetes's response to photobucket question(knew it was a C word); found alot, too, of support I hadn't seen; apologies for no response to those, but doing it now. You'all are a goes "try": my "Stable" art project, worked on sporadically since famous crash (since an inner artist, as well as inner horsewoman, the project kept a line of heart-focus). Only moveable are rider & the model Gypsy Vanner. All else nailed down (there's a kitty & 2 roosters in there, too; this is a work in progress, as am all we are, eh!)

    Thanks Alexis! The "brick" on the tiny shed is peanut brittle (from my mother, so can remember her when she's gone); took forever, w/ lotsa paint coats, to keep from dripping, but it added to the thing. have more courage than many would ever hope to have. I have no idea how you do it.

    Ditto, TJT, my MIL makes Christmas cookies each year, that's about more than I can tolerate. She can't put more than one tray in the oven at a time and whafts off the outcoming trays in an up and down motion for 10 mins. It takes a week to make all the cookies, and then they are all hard. Scream.

    How did you do the painting of the stall?

    Sit down and write what happened word for word and your memory will serve you. So trust it. All actions and your reactions.

    If memory serves me he was coming forward towards the front and out of control of himself. A reasonable action from you is to stop him reaching the front in his angry out of control state the result may have been he interfered with the control of the vehicle. A crash.

    We keep a running record af all contact and what is said. Those that have drug issues are always a problem as are those that have been abused who will claim abuse at every chance they get. I write what has transpired at an interview and read it back to them before making the notes official. Noting I have read it to them. It heads them off at the pass so to speak.
    I was also the court prosecuter for the service for several years and in a small town they think twice before taking me on.

    As for this kid, he has done this before, and his claim is his comfort blanket. A learned behavour, which has in the past got him out of the spot light.

    Even though young he is savvy. I would suspect he is a victim of sexual abuse and drug or solvent use.

    Thanks Stan. All my kids were violated, that's why I have them.

    I was calling my case worker at the time, during those times, the kid went quiet. He's savvy. I got 1 min 30 sec recorded on my phone, and then kid 3 tells him to shut up. It's unclear if that's because I am recording him or he was trying to calm it, I am suspicious, as he did nothing earlier when it was bad.

    I emailed the office already, word for word as much as I can remember.

    It's worrying, and these kids have us over with their claims. It's always been my biggest worry with fostering.

    LMAO!! Apparently I am saggy cardboard, as I guess I have fat spots. Maybe my inlaws can hold me tight, so we can paint.
