Awesome boat photos! I've never seen a fire-fighter-boat-thing before. Very cool.

Those are set up with an Emergency Command Center for all branches of service and has pumping capabilities to supply 500,000 gallons a minute to the city.
They are serious business, that's for sure.

Anita, I need to do some touch up work on a couple of mine and full trim on a couple others. I can't find my cutters so will pick up another pair tomorrow.


My DW called to inform me that she won tickets to the Rodeo up in Marianna,Fl ( just a bump up the road) for the Aug.17 weekend. I told her I didn't have any horses to enter with her in the rodeo other than Jems as a bronc, maybe. Lol She didn't appreciate my humor. She is suppose to be out of town picking up my 3rd daughter, grandson and a family friend that weekend so I'll get to go with our 12 yr old daughter.

Thought I would add these to the photo mix from today.

You can see the vehicle they use to move the sections around on the yard under the unit by the water.

Very interesting pictures Roady! It looks like the boats/ships (?) are built in sections then assembled. Amazing scale but overall the NYC firefighter tug is cute, sharp and powerful looking!

My Torsion arrived this afternoon! I wish I had time to try it out on Chivas, but have to work tonight again. I did try it out on the arm of the couch (haha) and it fits me perfect! The leather is amazingly soft and strong looking. Love it!

It came with a (used) Equipedic pad that has hoam inserts in it. It is attractive, but I'm not sure it will have enough support. I can't wait to try it out!!

I'd love to get a treeless saddle. Bloo's getting some senior body changes so it's really hard to fit saddles to him but my fitter suggested trying treeless. I've got a nice english that fits him like a dream but none of my others fit him anymore. In other senior horse news he lost his first tooth, which is a little sad but I rarely use a bit so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
I had an unexpected dismount but it was from a motorcycle. My uncle and I were in an accident. He got hurt pretty badly trying to protect me. I don't know how he did it but he caught me and rolled so he took most of the damage. He's still in the hospital but I was let out yesterday after promising not to ride. Bloo's been moved into my neighbor's back yard so I don't have to travel so far to see him. I'm trying to teach him to step to me when mounting on the block which will come in handy on the trails and requires no riding.
The neighborhood kids love Bloo so he's getting a lot of attention and they offered to clean up after him in exchange for pony rides. It's a better deal for me, Bloo gets exercised and all I have to do is put him on the lunge line and let them walk around for a bit.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

Glad you are ok and prayers sent for your uncle. Sounds like you have it made with the set up for Bloo. Congrats on that positive anyways..

I have a BobMarshall which is treeless and I love it. I set it right behind the shoulder in that pocket they have. I think it looks good on him other than that.

Roadyy- Loved the pictures!! That is so cool!

Bloo Babe- I hope you are on the mend soon. I feel as if so many people have been getting hurt lately. Keeping you and your uncle both in my thoughts!

It has been raining NONSTOP down here. Today was the worst storm yet. I was out at the barn feeding watching it pour (glad the boys and I were inside) when Whiskey decided to lose his mind over the thunder. Granted, he always is extra hyped up when he knows food is coming, which we have been working on. He gets ignored until the shenanigans (pawing, snorting, shifting left and right, backing up, etc) come to a stop. He is getting better. But today, today was not kind to us. Some lightning hit very close (even made me jump) and that was all she wrote for Whiskey. He reared up in the cross ties and then kept do half little rears. No one was injured, no one was hurt, but it rattled me up. I wasnt about to risk going near him when he was freaking out so bad, but I guess lesson learned.

On a happier note Drifter's best friend in the entire world returned back to the barn yesterday. Drifter was beside himself with happiness. It was the cutest thing. His owner had taken him home with her for the summer vacation, and he was just as glad to see Drifter as Drift was to see him.

It is supposed to rain for the next week down here. Its been 90 or 91 with a heat index of 105!!! I hate humidity. Its unbearable!!

Oh well. At least I can take pics :) Here is Whiskey being cute, Drifter being grumpy and both my boys loving on each other. It was a little rough between the two of them at first but they have become fast friends now.

It's been raining everyday for the last couple of weeks here. Mostly in the mid afternoon hours just so the grass doesn't have time to dry a little before I get home to cut my rain forest of a yard. I was able to get about an hour of cutting in on Monday evening before the rain started, but that wasn't anywhere near long enough to cut 2.5 acres of swamp. Got stuck a couple of times on the Snapper rear engine with it's narrow tires and had to jerk it forward by hand to, somewhat, solid ground. I almost think I'm making more of a mess than anything. Next week is suppose to be worse weather than this week has been.


No riding for me as I'm still trying to get the electric fence ran in the other pasture, keep patching the fences where Little Man continued to bust through and house hold chores after feeding and doctoring the horses. Oh, did I mention that I'm helping my cousin move today and helping another friend replace the clutch in his 89 Jeep Wrangler? All after I get off at 3pm. Woohooo!!!!
