I may never live that down.

That was awesome. His drawls were 10 shades of brown.

I know there are days when he could have written that exact rant about me, just with different things left hanging. I ranted on here because it was funny and it got it out of my system. When he came home yesterday I asked him if his ears had been burning and told him I had be "talkin' bout you" which he knows means I had some issues to get rid of. We talked about what tripped me up and then we talked about how we're BOTH going to try to improve our follow through and not get so distracted so easily.

So, if anyone took it that I was bashing, I truly wasn't. I got rid of frustration which allowed me to keep the communication open with my MUCH better half!

Pretty sure no one thought for one minute that you were a man basher - or that any of the other ladies that have commented are
I also think all the men on here are big enough to take it and secure enough to know that they're loved and needed
Did I creep enough there guys???

Ok here's one. This one is called "Let Palo embarrass herself "
I go down for a 'date' with my honey and we are going trail riding with two of his friends. So...of course, naturally, we're having a few um rootbeers and this stuff called "white cake". So, I am told there's no sugar in it (I'm diabetic) and guess what? The next thing I know, my cowboy hero is pulling me up off the floor and feeding me water. OOPS. Switch to beer.


Saddle up....I banged his horse's tail and brushed and brushed until he was shiny. RAIN...torrential downpour. Unsaddle sit under the tent, have a few more adult beverages.

Saddle up again...
We finally ride out and I had the best seat in the house...behind my hunk of hot stuff. Straight in the saddle. It was a lovely view. I couldn't tell you what the place looked at we were riding in, I was preoccupied. I nearly fell off the horse due to my libational condition, and he still loves me :)

I work in a 95% male industry. I've asked about this phenomenon before and was told they all do thing half a$$ed to they can get out of ever having to do anything again.

It’s a woman’s world.

Any masculine male coming into horses soon becomes aware that this is a female dominated world and he must adapt into it. A man soon has to learn that women think differently from men. It is not just the hair pieces, the false bosoms, the cleavage, the fashion, the make up, the high heeled shoes and the insistence on moving the furniture around, rather it is the aims and objectives in life. The likelihood is that the man will have been introduced to horses by a woman and that the first riding lesson will have been given by a woman. Masculine men are indeed rare creatures in this equestrian society and mostly, from the very beginning, nearly all of we private male owners treat our horses differently from women. A man who takes riding seriously probably was born with the instinct to love horses.

Looking back over the horses which took a place in my life, they were all geldings bar the last one. Somehow it seemed natural for me to own a male horse rather than a female of the species. But one day I met, and was captivated by a pretty, dapple grey, spotted mare. I had not taken into consideration that she might be one of those dominant mares who would in the wild have become the matriach of her herd. I had to learn how to work her. I had to ride her differently. I had to learn to ask and not demand. I had to be firm but gentle. Any other way of treating her would have been counter productive. I had to stroke her and give her ’presents’.
Just where had I learned to act that way I wonder.

At first I had not realized that my newly acquired Diva might be good at dressage and it took a young gifted female to show me that my little mare was a natural at the discipline. Me, well I had bought her simply because she was pretty and she had given me a lick on the first meeting. Her role would be to take me down to the pub but that wasn’t good enough for her. If she had been human, then should would have been a prima donna ballerina. She always wanted more and she felt she was worth it.

Then one day I realized that she experienced ‘monthlies’ and that during the period she could morph into something completely unmanageable. She would then dominate the place. She’d throw herself about, she’d chase off after the geldings, she’d throw strops and she’d pretend to be ’frightened’ when she wanted her own way.

There’s a long sad story to tell about her but I have to admit that, in a relatively short space of time, she wormed her way into my psyche. Actually she wasn’t the prettiest horse I have owned. She certainly wasn’t the easiest horse to ride. But without a doubt she was the one with the strongest character. But she could not help it - after all she was female.

I miss her still.

Undoubtedly a good female is worth her weight in gold - if the man still has any left over.

Shortly after we got married I was working on my 80 chevy pickup's rear axle. I had a small floor jack under the chunk to lift it while working on it, well when time to let it down I knelt down on my right knee, reached under and twisted the handle. Didn't notice my left knee was directly under the steel bumper. Yep, it came down too fast and slapped my knee cap. Luckily it only had to go about a 1/2" further than the location of the top of my knee before it bounced back up. There wasn't really any pain at first just a throbbing when I stood up. Now when I went to take a step and there was no leg under me was when the fear set in. The doc said it merely smashed/flattened all the tissue/ligaments under and around the cap, but nothing broken or torn, but I had to wear a full leg brace for a few weeks.

I don't take medication, pain killers or anything like that so when something like this happens and they shoot me up before leaving it really affects me. They loaded me up with Loritab10 before sending me home and the DW asks how long before the drugs kick in which the nurse replied about 30 minutes. Mind you it takes 15 minutes to get checked out and we live 30 minutes from the hospital.

I start feeling it about the time we get in the van and before we get half way through town my DW tells me I was hanging out the window hollaring at the cops sitting in parking lots, people walking along side the road and cussing out dogs that were barking in the back of trucks. All the while she is screaming at me to shut before we go to jail.

I'm on crutches to help with the brace and there are 9 steps to get up on the porch. I decided I could climb up the steps backwards and refused the help from DW because I could handle this. As I'm looking back up at the steps from the ground where I fell to, I look over at DW and say " I've fallen and I can't get up"!

Her, the neighbors who were watching and the kids still tell that story anytime I have to go to the doctor for even the slightest little thing.
