@george themule - so glad to see that Oily's foot healed up so nicely and that the vet gave the okay for riding. I'm sure he'll be happy to get back to work, too!

@Rod - your story was amazing! I was astonished to realize that a steer so severely injured could put up such a fight. I'm glad to hear your eye is doing well and that you got some riding in. Pretty rotten way to have your plans disrupted, though.

If anyone is interested in installing a recycled kitchen, saving lots of money in the process and getting a super result, you can check it out on my journal - lots of photos.

@Rod , I'm sorry you had to butcher the calf so young, and that it suffered for some time. poor fellow. But, will be good eating!



I'm sorry, I didn't know for what reason you were in hosptial and getting treatment. I hope you are doing better now.

Why thank you, @tinyliny ! I could say it's because I was finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and that would be partially it; the other, bigger, reason is that DH takes the photographs, and that makes all the difference.

I avoided smiling till I was 27 because I genetically had a big gap in my teeth and a lot of people gave me a hard time about it, including middle school bullies and my own parents - I had choice nicknames like "beaver" and "rat" and "buck teeth" as a teenager. When I was old enough to have a salary, my first priority was repairing some damage done by an old horse riding accident in childhood - I actually could not breathe through my nose for 16 years because it had been so badly broken - and it was great to be able to do so again, once they surgically opened up my nasal passages from the obtruding scar tissue that had formed. And then the second thing was to see an orthodontist, who made me a partial brace with Christmas-coloured elastics that closed my gap in half a year. I was teaching at the time so some of the students were very happy that their teacher went to the same orthodontist as they did. And then I started smiling, and I've not stopped.

We could say it's silly, and part of it is really - but I don't think wanting the gap closed was any sillier than people giving me a hard time about it when I was young. And because I've got an untreated overbite, pulling the teeth in to close the gap also let me close my lips properly, which is a functional issue.

I don't have to tell this story, but when people remark about my smile, sometimes I do. I hope it will make people look out for young people with physical blemishes which they get savaged over, and be kind to them, and show them that not everyone in the world is a pig's posterior orifice. As mature adults, when we speak up about nastiness or injustice, and when we are kind to others, it can make a world of difference to others. Everyone reading, please remember your power to make life brighter for other human beings, especially those not yet long in this world.

We're really happy with the kitchen. Totally functional, totally fitted the budget, appeals aesthetically to us, cute, low environmental footprint, and a one-off because remodelled; and it's inspired other people to do similar things. It's more important to have good taste and a bit of ingenuity than buckets of money!

And it was other people writing stuff like this that got us thinking outside the square in so many ways that we are grateful for. So now we do the same. Life is so much nicer when it's that way, rather than the usual competition in the rat race.

I hope your art is coming along well and that you are enjoying your riding! It's always a highlight when you post new artwork you have done. I like seeing the light in other people!


Have a wonderful day, @tinyliny , and all the other K&Ks!

And thanks again all for letting me be an official cheerleader!

Don't worry, there's lots of that here too! Always more ideas than energy and resources. But when we were building, we simply didn't have a choice but to do the work, which really helped us get on with it!


Armchairing and daydreaming are also honorable pursuits!

Yesterday I had another blast of a ride!! (having so much fun here, it's not fair)


One of our barn buddies, one of the only guys, and a fellow who is into endurance riding, set up a course for us to do. It was only 6.7 miles, but most of us are pretty much weeny riders, so that's a lot. It was over wooded trails in our local park, where he put up markers to mark the route. We had so much, fun as we trotted or cantered every spot that was level enough to do so.*(much of it is narrow trails that aren't suited to more than a walk)
We started at 5:30 pm, and finished in about 1.2 hours, ate a quick snack at the finish location, in the gloaming, and rode the half hour home by moonlight, in the dark forest (no flashlights, horses can see in the dark).


It was super fun, and brought out the competitive spirit in us, and then a magical ride home, tired horses detacked and rubbed down by flashlight, and home to a hot bath for me!


I'm super stiff today, though. Being 60 means you can still DO a lot, but you PAY a lot for it the next day.

Sorry about the topsy turvy pics. I'm using classic mode but on a phone.

Sounds like good stuff going on.

I'm still on vacation. Lots of water activities. I head west tomorrow and will be glad to get home in a few days.

Snow is predicted for my last day of travel. Ah, well. Horse and I have cow work next weekend. I hope it isn't very cold.
