I think I will be taking a break from the Forum for a while, it seems some "special members" are allowed rude posts...and I am tired of being nice. Would love to be all rude and condescending in return, but that would be forbidden...

Brett had cats growing up. We'd like cats, but a) our dog would eat them as a snack, and b) we can't have outdoor cats where we live because of the wildlife... and we can't quite bring ourselves to have entirely indoors cats... and building runs is too difficult...

@AnitaAnne , too right! ...and do you know, we went to Denmark on Thursday, so just as well Denmark is only half an hour's drive from us! (We've got a theme here, right?) We took photos of a couple of hikes we went on there, which you can see here:


...there's this amazing beach there that looks like this:

...but the other photos are worth checking out too if you are interested in Denmark - in Western Australia! And my DH channelling Hamlet.

Sorry I have to be so slapdash this evening, but it's bedtime and I am just squeezing this in....
I didn’t KNOW we were SO close, @SueC !! I am about 1/2 hour from Stockholm, and that is just a few miles from Sweeden (sic)!!

Well I am about 20 minutes from Cadiz and roughly 3 hours from Athens but I have never been to Intercourse WV.

And @SueC I have eaten walnuts, pecans, and cashews when I didn't have any upper teeth so I think I will be able to eat peanuts with false teeth. LOL

@anita Ann are you referring to the two threads that were closed? I read through both of those and just sat on my hands. LOL. I don't talk about religion or politics with family unless someone invites me to respond.

I have been busy with life the last couple of weeks. Went to renew my Drivers license on the 5th before they expired and renew the truck plates. First the birth cert. from the hospital wasn't the right one and ended up going to the county dept. for a legal copy that met state requirements. Then couldn't see the eye chart clearly so had to put on my glasses which made no difference at all. So didn't get to renew them and they expired the 7th. So really watched my sugar levels and went back on the 9th and after explaining to the lady she let me do the eye chart and helped me look through the part of the lens with out the bifocals getting in the way. I passed the test but am restricted to driving with glasses.

So the 12th I went to Pittsburgh to the eye clinic and saw the optomalegists and she set me up for an eye examine to see if the Dr. can get me a new pair of glasses that will work since I am borderline with having cataracts removed. and I am in the beginning stages of macular degeneration. So by the time I need to renew the D.L. again I might not be driving anyway..

Youngest son his wife and daughter and MIL went to Charlotte N.C today to visit his wife's sister and go to the beach in S.C. I told his MIL to watch out for sharks LOL she said she didn't want to hear that. LOL>

@SueC I haven’t used the name Psycho Princess much at all lately. I may have to reconsider after today. A large deer walked out in front of us. She stopped and stared us. The horses stared at her. My mare was intently staring at the deer. Then HWNN walked into her butt and startled her. She kicked out and got both him and the rider with her back hooves. Fortunately nobody was really hurt.

Then we decided to do a little gallop. She was doing great, but she let out one great big “hurray for life” buck. Fortunately again, I wasn’t unseated.

@AnitaAnne My friend has been riding HWNN. She doesn’t mind riding him slowly or wide open as he can go. She does have her own horse. An extremely easy going grade paint. She fell off of it recently and has been terrified to get back on her own horse. I pointed out how crazy that was and she finally rode her today. She didn’t get back on after falling off. That is one rule that we always were taught when I was a kid. If you fall off, get back on unless parts are dangling off of you. (Rule number 2 was “don’t let mama find out you fell off or she might make us give up the pony.)

Also, I am with @phantomhorse13 . Don't let stupid people keep you away from us. We are the cool kids here.

Carpe Diem!

Yup. Ours was: "You either get on the horse or get to the ER."

But, wait! YOU are a special member!

@AnitaAnne don't let them keep you away! Just come here, where we are all nice!

@Spanish Rider love the town names, we have a lot of towns named after Native American words which makes it pretty funny when people from around here try to pronounce them! Wayzata (Why-zet-ah), Chokio (Sha-ki-oh), Shakopee (Shock-o-pee), etc!

@Celeste don't you love silly horses? Chico has recently decided the downed tree at the park that he has walked over 3x a week since the park opened this spring is SUPER SCARY!

This weekend we had our closest ride. Saturday Chico and I completed our first 50! (Pictures are from mile 48) It was hot and humid but we had a ton of fun and I was soooooo proud of him! He was a rockstar all day, yanking my arms out the first 2 loops, chasing Competitive Trail riders at mile 35, and wiggling for the vet at the end. Sunday morning he woke up and hollered his face off the whole time we were out on trail with his buddies, rolled and bucked at Stitch as soon as he got in the pasture, and threw a hissy fit when he finished his grain and he was still tied up (pawing, biting Jake, chewing the fence) so I think it's safe to say he feels good!

Sunday wasn't as good, Comet was pulled for lameness after 15 miles (likely a tweaked muscle from the deep sand vet didn't think it was anything serious) and Jake was a little off due to rubs from his boots so I rider optioned him. It was even hotter and more humid so a part of me wasn't too upset I didn't have to ride the extra 10 miles. Jake trotted sound down the driveway this morning after his breakfast so I'm hoping to get a set of shoes on him and get him through his first LD in 2 weeks!

FYI First 2 pictures are Chico, 3rd is Jake. They both look similar coated in sweat and with their Quiet Ride masks on!

I'll have to revive my journal and write the whole story of the 50 this afternoon or tomorrow. Thanks to @phantomhorse13 who was messaging us all day and making me drink my water and electrolytes! Couldn't have done it without her support!

@Queen , believe it or not, my BIL's wife is from Minnetonka, and they had their wedding reception at the Wayzata CC.

Hooray for you and Chico!!! So nice that our @phantomhorse13 is mentoring you, too.

Calling Car 54, Car 54 where are you? Be on the look out for a female that goes by the Alias of @AnitaAnne last seen chasing her tail trying to catch up.

If located tell her to log into the horse forum. We all are getting @AnitaAnne separation anxiety and missing her humor.
