    Yep tg, I feel the same way but I haven't had my morning coffee yet, which could explain why I'm still sooooo tired this morning.

    Good morning! It's definitely a coffee-needed morning on my end.

    Foals are cute in general, but those dishy faces are extra adorable, DB!

    Cash was back to his usual self Sat (no more coughing or shortness of breath) and I hopped on for a few minutes on Sunday. He was such a good boy! His facial expressions while he processed that first ride were hilarious. I also had a great little Facebook chat with the lady in Oregon who owns Cash's 3yr old full brother and a 2yr old by the same sire.

    That's awesome cyn! I had a great ride on my mare Sat night. Actually it turned into a lesson as my best friend is a level 4 dressage rider and my hero:) She's the one thaty gelding kicked on Thursday. No, I do not ride dressage but the basics are pretty much the same. This mare has taught me alot and vice versa. Her reward was a nice lope around the arena then some grass grazing time before she went back to her stall:)

    What you like to do, TG? Eat, drink, dance, tour museums, shop for clothes/cars/bikes/shoes/kitchen ware, get massages & facials, people watch, eat ice cream?

    My Plano friends say Downtown Plano can be fun, but I usually stick to Dallas, lol. Dinner at Urban Crust & drinks at the Ice Bar are popular date nights. Brix has music on the weekends and is a laid back atmosphere with a decent beer selection. A little driving down the Tollway will get you to Whiskey Cakes which is a restaurant I adore - fantastic food with some local ingredients, interesting cocktails, and a divine whiskey cake for dessert. It's a tad pricy, but showing off is what Plano is all about ;)

    Ironic story about Mr. Anderson. He was the last VP of the Repulic of Texas. Came into town sick, died of yellow fever. They buried him in the family cemetery. Then Mr. And Mrs. Fantrop caught yellow fever from him and both died.

    So they change the name of the town from Fantrop to Anderson .. after the VP that came to town with yellow fever... that killed the Fanthrops...

    Very interesting tg. Hey if y'all are staying in Plano, check out Love and War in Texas. They have great food and live music on Saturday nights. I've also been told the hold cowboy church services on Sunday morning???? It's at Plano Parkway and 75.

    What a neat find, TG!

    I should be working but I'm sitting here looking at dogs in need of rescue. My 10 month-ish old Catahoula is a handful, but I'm still contemplating getting him a sibling...it just has to be another Cattie or big herding dog, since there is nothing easy or gentle about his manner of play!
        06-24-2013, 01:28 PM
    Ooh, yeah, Love & War is a great option!
        06-24-2013, 01:48 PM
    Well, I see that Love and War is just a couple exits down from where we are staying .. and the downtown district is close ... so I think we'll find plenty to do.

    We're pretty easy .. heck, we enjoy walking around old historic cemeteries.. we're THAT easy! Lol
