Where to begin...?
The first mystery could really be re-characterized as a rant...
My sister just got a horse, a beautiful half shire mare who suits her perfectly. She paid about $1,000.00 for her. Her DH is fine with it, even encouraged her saying he loved her smile when she came home from the barn, so all is well there. MY
DH is not so fine with it, because of the time and money involved, neither of which my sister has in abundance, being a school librarian. He knows that it is none of his business, but he goes on and on about it...
Anyway. Sister has a horse, sister's DH just bought a sports car. WAY more expensive than a horse. Sister is fine with it, MY
DH is also fine
with it. "Wow, that is so cool, he's gonna love it!" They already have two vehicles: a truck and a family car, so they don't need the sports car. Same family, same financial/time situation.
So the mystery is, why is a sports car fine in DH's opinion, but a horse is not?
So that is mystery number 1.
Mystery number 2:
DH went out to pee behind the shop, and found this: _DSC2846.jpg
It is a gaff, last seen a week ago, unbroken, on our dock.
Now it is broken behind the shop, with the hook buried at least 2" into the dirt, like this: Attachment 976251
It clearly had been buried, and there were scratch marks where it had been buried: _DSC2854.jpg
It was getting pretty dark so I don't know if you can see them well, but clearly scratch marks.
I pulled the hook out, and it was about 2" deep in the hole with the dirt piled up around it in a little mound: _DSC2878.jpg
What happened here? I don't understand it at all!
And the half mystery: Why do men pee in the yard? DH says it is fun, but we have very nice bathrooms, and he deliberately goes outside to pee. I think it is a territory marking thing, but then, I am an ex-psychologist...
