    Good morning, Texans! Hope everyone has a great week!

    Going to Dover Saddlery on my lunch break to try on helmets, per fiance's request. Fair enough.

    Good morning! Hope everyone is doing well. Speaking of Dover, we're going to the Grand Opening of Dover in Austin on Friday So excited.

    It's also raining again, so the lower pasture horses will stay with mine until the fence can get fixed. When DH came out with me I said: "Surprise! I got more horses!" lol he didn't buy it though... Knows me too well ;)

    KC, glad to hear your son is liking a school. If I may offer some advice, pick one that gets him out into the real world through internships or anything like that. Getting your foot in the door and having "free interviews" (what internships are) can be crucial to getting a job later on. The more companies he's interested in working for know him, the better. Had to find that out the hard way. My first school didn't really do any of that and I had a hard time finding a job, but my second school rotated us through different internships and I had multiple offers by the time I graduated. Good luck!

    That is great advice kiara my daughter also had multilple internships and is now getting some great job offers. One is in your neck of the woods and if she takes it you will have to meet.
    The one she is interested in and I hope does not take is in New York.
    Finding apartment there is next to impossible.
    I am glad your son is interested in college kctop. That is a good kid you have .
    I saw him at the store by the school the other day and he shook my hand . Every time I see him I think that's what your husband looked like at that age. LOL. The share the same mannerisms. Shalom

    That's so good to hear dba. I am very proud of the man he is becoming. Although he has a few bad habits I could do without.

    Hello, all! Know I'm about 800 pages of posts late to the party, but new to Texas (well, newly back - spent about 10 years in the military) and was thrilled to find this thread, so wanted to pop in and introduce myself anyway, hopefully not too rudely...

    I have a resident herd of 8 horses, a small group of boarders, and a fully interactive riding simulator on about 25 acres outside of Houston, Texas. Spend some time in the hill country, and look forward to trotting around other cities myself and with horses in tow, in the future. Thanks again for creating this thread, and hope you all have a great day!

    Yea he can't help himself. He thinks about four things all day, Sports , Food, girls, Cars. Not always in that order. If any of one those things are in his sight that is the topic on his brain.
    So kctop put on espn, keep him full, and park a car outside his window. Then you might have a chance to control his thoughts.
    Kiara if she takes that job then she will meet you. Shalom

    I don't have a chance of controlling his thoughts and haven't for a while. He's not a big sports fan but likes to lift weights and keeping him full is impossible not to mention he has to maintain a certain weight during powerlifting season. He is dead set on going to college which I am truly grateful for.
