I'm not a fan of either school; although my husband did attend and play football for Texas A&M. My heart is with a particular Pac12 school.

My reason for the gig em was to show support for those affected by the tragedy in Aggieland today.

Just back from another intense work weekend...
Heart and prayers are with those in Aggieland. It is always that much worse when there is a victim in law enforcement, those that put their lives on the line when they put the uniform on every day.

Kayella and Texasreb, kudos to you for working with rescues. When you work with rescues, you are pulled down into the sordid reality of the evil of which humans are capable ... maybe I will have the capacity to work with rescues in my golden years, as I know that it can be a worthwhile experience. I adopted a foster (human) child, and it is one step forward, five steps back, over and over again. However frustrating, the life lessons learned are worth their weight in gold!

Update on kitty Allie... she has morphed into a fat tummy with arms, legs, tail, and a head! She has learned to eat without trying to suckle, and this week we are beginning to learn to use a litter box. Please, Allie, learn fast! She will be a gorgeous cat and I can see her staying here with us, but also have a couple of people interested in taking her, so we will see how things turn out.

Just have to say, dbarabians and Cboy, unlike you, I am very open to matchmakers. Matchmakers who want a challenge, I should say, haha.
If you know anyone who likes a woman who gets down and dirty with horses everyday (easy!) and who also can distinguish between Vilvaldi and Wagner (super easy!) and can educate me about Malbecs and Shiraz ... and someone who would rather pull out the lawn chairs and watch the horses in the pasture than go to the movies... send them my way, anyday :))

@CB and Dbarabians--I'd rather be a Duck than a cow any day!!

@outnabout--You're talkin' my language! Vilvaldi and Wagner; Malbec and Shiraz--yep, my language!

I've always thought about adopting/fostering; but I work with broken children everyday. As much as I love my job (school for the blind); I don't think I could do it 24/7.

Super easy way to litter train kittens is to to stick them in the box, grab one of their front paws, and dig it into the litter like an adult cat would. Simulate him digging through the litter, and they will 99.9% of the time go to the restroom right then and there. This litter of kittens we didn't even potty train. They learn how to go themselves, apparently from watching the big kitties do it.

Rescues are a lot of work, and force you to think differently than if it were a horse who had never been abused in its life. Something that will be fine with the average horse will spook an abused horse. You have to learn the horse before you begin working with them.
