  1. Been raining here most of the morning, it is down to showers now. Hauled both my geldings out to a equine dentist this AM, one gelding needed some work, & the other didn't, so that was a bit less money out of my pocket. I'll have to see if my wife has a honey doo list for me, if so I hope it is a short one. PD
  2. I grilled the steak, my wife made the salad & beans, her choice, as I'm kept at arms length in her kitchen. PD
  3. We just got done with lunch, we had steak off the grill & bean & macaroni salad. Was very good. The boss knows how to dirty dishes, mgood thing we have a dishwasher, or guess who would be doing them!! PD
  4. The sun is nice & bright this AM here, but we have rain in the forecast, for next couple days. Got a number of things I should do, as they have been waiting all winter for my attention, guess they might have to wait longer. PD
  5. Pink, Mozelle went for her second checkup today, since having surgery, almost 4 weeks ago, she still has pain in her mid-section at times, & DR. said that is not unusual, as surgery was rather extensive. They will do both Chemo & Radiation therapy in the future, but DR. was pleased that she looked good & glad she had good appetite, but warned her about doing anything extensive yet, then pointed to me, & said let him do it. PD
  6. RRW, It has probably been 30 years since I've been on a bike, we both bought one 30 years ago, but just never kept riding them, I bought a horse shortly after & that was it. Wolf, I hope your weather improves soon so you can enjoy all those bike trails, without having to carry a snow shovel with you. Pink, Hope your back gets better, & you have a good day at work. TL, Hope those seeds you put in the ground grow, into bountiful crop. Not much going on here, & that is okay, Later PD
  7. Thought this forum was for expression of honest opinions, & in my thinking that is all nick has said, yes she was trying to draw more people into the discussion. I understand how people get burnt out with politics, as there is little each one of us can do to change things. But there is much going on in our political world that should be questioned. Only when people hold their reps in DC accountable, can much be done. Because when the people are not happy with them, it does get their attention, as there is power in numbers. PD
  8. Tack seems to collect over the years, often it isn't of great value, but you keep thinking you'll find a use for it. Some day it will be someone will rid of it for me. I keep hearing report of a horse running loose in our area, it has been spotted for at least the 10 days to 2 weeks, in the same general areas. but no one has got close enough to catch it. Kind of a mystery. The sun is out again should ride again, but I've put off other things to ride, so I better get more accomplished here. But I don't move all that fast either. PD
  9. Serah, Like your tack shed, it looks like it should hold a good amount of tack. You'll have fun organizing it. Heidi, Hope next time your ride goes better, at least now you know the cause, so easier to address issues like that in the future. Just glad you stayed in the saddle & didn't get hurt. I got both care & truck cleaned out, but still have to dust the dash & the clean the doors yet. I'm a bit stiff & sore from riding this AM, took my TWH gelding out, as he can be sppoky at times, he was nervous, but manageable, he's scared of dogs & cattle, & there is alot of them for him to see, in our area, he walked past both today, without trying to run off, last fall he took me through a ditch before I got him stopped. He did good today, he does teach me patience, as a soft hands & tone of voice, work best with him. PD
  10. Just got back from ride around the neighborhood, I had to get out & enjoy the sun, now I think I'll clean all the dirt that gathered over winter out of both car & truck, many things I should do, but pick & choose what I like to do. PD
  11. TL, Thanks for sending picture, I wish you well as you look, sometimes we find a diamond in the rough. Now I should get busy & accomplish something. Later PD
  12. It is currently 39 degrees here & sunny, & suppose to be sunny over the weekend, got to get my horse out& explore, as there has been a horse running loose in our neighborhood, I'd like to see if I find any signs of it. The work I should do will have to wait. Wolf, Sounds like your wife is like mine, is supportive of my interests, even if she doesn't enjoy them herself. So only fair that we support their interests also. TL, How the search for a horse going? Later. PD
  13. Wolf, Glad I'm not only one having weather that is the pits. So I guess it can only get better, but life is good with out the bugs. Pink, I hope your mother will see a doctor, & find out just what is wrong, not easy to be concerned about a parent. best Wishes. PD
  14. There was rain the air all day yesterday, it rained a inch & a half over night, been a wet & weird spring, we had warm days in February, now the third week of April & it is still on cool side, In a few places people have mowed their lawns,, & small grain crops are coming up, on the lighter ground, but grass is growing slower than usual, for this time of the year. After all our rain bugs will be out in full force when it does warm up, as it should be. Later. PD
  15. To bad there are those crazies out there, but good that he can no longer hurt anybody else. We had a guy recently running loose in southern WI. Thankfully he was taken into custody with little resistance. He now faces both state & federal crimes, so I doubt he is back out on the streets anytime soon. RRW, My one horse is black, but had to check the dirt after he rolled yesterday, to see if there was black hair in the mud, I had to look close, but there was. Now I better accomplish something. PD
