    It's Tuesday! I was off yesterday and I'm off Thursday and maybe even Friday, so going to be a short week for me:) I'm getting excited about Saturday, can't wait to see how my mare does at the playday. She's been doing so well in her ground work and even in the saddle!!!

    DBA, did you get my PM?

    Kctop I sure did. No problem and hope to see you this Saturday. Is it your church that is having the vet out on the 23rd? Saw a flyer and the prices are really good. Lots of paper work to fill out and a couple of meetings with the
    Mental health team that worked with the veteran that attempted suicide this weekend so I was kind of tired of typing and talking. Shalom

    KC - don't forget a camera!

    Wish we were closer - I'd go with you! My girls would love it to. Haven't been to a playday in forever.


    DBA, I'm so sorry to hear about that - it must have been a bit hectic the past few days. I hope he is stable and getting some good care?

    Yep DBA. We are having a vet out on the 23rd. He'll do dogs and horses. Last year, he even gelded a colt. My babies aren't due till June but I might take my gelding to have his teeth floated. Sorry to hear about the veteran, hope he recovers ok.

    I have a decent camera on my phone CC but I get so busy in set up and participation, I forget about taking pics but I will try!

    Are KC and DBA going to meet up at the play day? If so, maybe DBA could learn how to use that camera of his.

    Oopsies, I meant KC. :P

    Bit of a vent .. or maybe just airing something out.

    Okay, the guy that moved my mare for me last week.... he and I have been acquainted for years. See each other at the feed store, church, playdays, gas station, etc. Years. We always hug and exchange hellos and howya doins.

    I've always thought he was nice .. he's older than me (60s I'm guessing) .. Always involved with horses somehow, at auctions, playdays, everything.

    Well, he calls me when he's ready to go get my mare to tell me he's around the corner with the trailer. Then he asks me if I'm wearing something sexy.
    Ugh.


    I said "Uh NO" .. he says "Too bad. You know I've always thought you were sexy" (which I'm not) "I've always had a thing for you"

    I replied "Uh, I'll see you in a few minutes"

    Got in the truck and he leans over and kisses me.. on the cheek after I turn my head. Then he rides down the road with his hand moving from my arm to my leg as he's talking.

    Now, I know that some folks are touchy feely .. I'm a hugger and a toucher, but this was uncomfortable.

    He proceeds to tell me about a time (over 20 years ago) when I was riding a Riskey Business son at a local team penning. He thought I was the sexiest thing .. bla bla bla ... He has the hots for me .. bla bla bla ...

    I told him "Look, let's just keep this between you and I. I don't think my husband would appreciate you talking to me like this."

    "Neither would my wife..." .... nice.

    Long story short, I'm stuck with this guy for the next couple hours as we go get the horse and move her. I proceed to talk about church and my husband most of the time.

    When I thanked him for moving her for me, he hugged me and wouldn't let me go .. ugh.

    I'm soooooo disappointed. I've known this guy for EVER. Now I'm utterly uncomfortable around him.

    He's called my phone twice today .. I haven't answered him. The message,

    "Hey girl, I was just checking up on you to see how you're doing. Give me a call."

    Do guys really think we are flattered by THAT kind of attention?

    He's a really good contact to have in the area, but I don't want to have to freakin' dodge him everytime I'm around him... I also don't want to shoot him. Ha.

    I guess I just need to be straight with him and tell him that he made me really uncomfortable and ... and what?

    You definitely want to be straight up, because saying to keep it between you he could interpret as consent and to just keep it quiet... Sadly, sometimes even a straight out "NO!" is not understood by men, but you have to be frank. Any leeway and they can interpret it their way... I once told a guy I hated him and wanted nothing to do with him. His answer? "You're exaggerating!"

    You probably also want to make your husband aware so it doesn't come out later and he'll feel betrayed that you didn't say anything. Depends on your relationship too though. That is what I would do with my husband, but we are very honest with each other and I have a low tolerance for unwanted male attention

    Hope you can get this resolved. It definitely sucks to be in that position.

    I don't have much relationship experience, but I def have a lot of experience chasing off the creeps LOL. Though I usually don't care if we remain friends or not. Tell him, "While you're a great FRIEND, I have no interest in you in that manner. I'm happily married to the man of my dreams and nothing will come in the way of altering our relationship."

    I agree with Kiara on this one TG. Be straight with him and tell him if he can't keep his hands and comments to himself, then he shouldn't be talking to you! I know it's easier said than done but sometimes ya gotta do whatcha gotta do!!!!
