Hope everyone had a fabuloso Turkey Day!

My oldest and I went on our charity 5K run this morning - temp was holding at 30. There wasn't any dew on the ground to wet our sneakers because it was all frozen ice. Still, I overdressed - I wore a running shirt that was fleece on the inside, two pairs of tights, gloves, muffs and a jacket and I was sweating through at a mile and a half. I will never again point and laugh at those people who show up minimally dressed to run a race in the cold. They actually DO know what they are doing.

There was a man running the 5K in a big yellow chicken costume. All during the run he would scream out 'Today the chickens are safe! Today the chickens are safe!' HAHA! People will do anything if it raises money for a good cause.

Altho cold, it was nice to spend time with family and get to feel the sunshine on my skin! Supposed to be 70 by Sunday - and yet even more rain (altho warmer temps) next week. Looks like the mud is going to hang around for awhile longer.

Great ride on Cash today! Best one yet.

I want a truck. And, then, eventually a trailer. But the truck would end up being my primary vehicle, so it has to be crew cab (I regularly cart around 3 passengers) and gas mileage is an issue. What to do, what to do...

Our Ram 1500 can haul over 10,000 lbs but has a Hemi, so shuts off cylinders to conserve fuel. Sits 6 comfortably in the Quad cab. There's a reason we call him "Beast" haha

Wow, it's been a busy thanksgiving weekend. Today was rough as my son and I attended the funeral of a friend of his this morning. It was harder than I thought it would be. I went to support my son but I think the roles got reversed. Not sure who took it worse?
My daughter's boyfriend is at parkland and will have surgery on his eye in the morning. A piece of concrete from a gunshot hit him in the eye last night. The gun was shot by accident, thank goodness it was pointed at the ground (that's where the concrete came in).
I am now back at the barn for some relaxation. ....

Kctop glad to hear your at the barn relaxing.
Anything I can do let me know.
I spent the night at the emergency room also and now have a funeral to attend .
A young lady was in a car crash and died. She left behind a very young child.
My friend Russel suffered a stroke thanksgiving and I spent all night at the emergency room with him.
kctop I will call you tomorrow.
Cynical good luck on shopping for a pick up. One of the things I detest is car shopping and why I only do it every 10 years or so.
Kiara good to hear from you.
i gotta remember my facebook password so I can stay in touch with the rest of the gang. Shalom

Good morning Texas Friends!

DBA, I'm so sorry to hear about your friends. I will keep them in my thoughts.

Currently we're hauling Acey to Denton (Susar Farms) for a horse show. This is our first time at this show, so it should be an interesting experience. :)

Good luck at the show, Horsemom!

Need to walk the dogs then head to the barn. Not ready to return to work on Monday...
