  1. I'm sorry about Tucker I am still at same place, I still have Smokey (who is 26 now ) Rona, and a mini named Hunter. I have 3 kids now, Rylie is going to be 6 in October, Will will be 4 in Oct, and James just turned 1 in March. Needless to say, the horses are fed and groomed but not much more happening with them
  2. I haven't logged in in a few years and now after the recent Facebook reunion thought it'd be fun to come back. Except my display name Smokum is no longer my display name and it's the beginning of my email :/ Tried changing it back but it says that username is already in use, searched that username and it is someone who's never logged in. Can anyone help me get my username back please? Thanks so much! Smokum :)
  3. Since These Boards Are So Dead

    Very empty, I am gone for weeks at a time and come back and there are only 2 new threads started... Maybe people are enjoying what nice days are left before the snow flies? Or have migrated to one of the more active forums.
  4. I don't decorate until Dec. 1st. I may start getting a few things out after Thanksgiving but nothing goes up until Dec. 1st. except maybe lights, which need to go up before the snow flies and it's too dangerous. Christmas stuff has been out in the local Walmart since September I was shocked! Christmas stuff was out even before Halloween stuff was out.
  5. Election Ads

    Nope... I got rid of my home phone last month because I was getting calls at all hours of the day about the elections, wanting me to do surveys, donate money to this or that charity or organization. Last straw was when I got 3 calls in a row from the same number and it woke my sleeping kids up... The only channels we watch are movie channels or the Disney/Nickelodeon channels. I can tell you there aren't any campaign ads on the Disney channel. Scott Walker is the Governor of WI, wonder if you were hearing about him Serah.
  6. Halloween Decorations.

    Saw this story on our local news station. There was a guy who put up a Halloween display in his front yard, a man being hung from a tree. Some people became offended that it could represent lynchings and confronted the guy who ultimately took the decorations down but this created quite the stir on FB. Keep in mind that the decorations were hung (pun intended ) by a man of Asian descent and those offended are African american. What do you think? Are there limits on how far you can go with your decorations, costumes, etc? Do these people really have anything to be offended about or are they being overly sensitive? What do you think about ban on certain costumes in school (no witches, cowboys or indians, masks, or anything overly scary) and do you agree or disagree? http://www.kare11.com/story/news/local/2014/10/29/n-mpls-halloween-display-taken-down-after-complaints/18141611/ I know growing up anything was fair game. There were your average mild displays, ghosts, witches, spiders, etc. all the way to the most awesome haunted houses with bodies hanging in trees, beheaded, zombies, missing limbs, chainsaws, fake blood, and torture. Costumes could be anything from cute little princesses to pirates and mummies, zombies and witches, dead people or cute little fuzzy animals. I can tell you I was never once offended, what happened?
  7. Anybody Want One Of The Horse City Cookbooks?

    Awesome! PM sent, thanks!
  8. Anybody Want One Of The Horse City Cookbooks?

    I would love it! I lost most of my cookbooks because boxes were left on the trailer when we moved and it rained I haven't bought any since so I am definitely in need.
  9. Barn, Yes!

    Thought this might help... Complete with diagrams :) http://pubs.cas.psu.edu/freepubs/pdfs/ub036.pdf
  10. Barn, Yes!

    Well drained dirt floor with rubber mats on top for stalls. It allows drainage and gives.

    Hahaha, I tried, but hubby vetoed. To be honest he doesn't know what a Tennessee walker even is so he just looked at me like when I said it's a breed of horse, get it, she's a walker, Tennessee. Walker. ok

    We decided (ok, maybe *I* did all the deciding ) to name her Gem. I am incorporating Gemini into her registered name to tie it all together.
  13. Jingles For An Unusual Rescue

    Wow that one IS really dark, it's beautiful! Glad you let it go, so many will just kill without thinking about their value as rodent control. I had one in our garage this spring, we got it to go in a garbage can and relocated to the adjoining field. I think this color is a bit more typical. Still, they do give you quite the fright when you nearly step on them and they stand up like a cobra hissing I honestly didn't think they were venomous, I was told by a supposed snake "expert" that their venom wasn't potent enough to cause a human any harm, I should be more worried about bacteria, maybe he was wrong? I'm glad we don't have many dangerous snakes up here, the only ones really prevalent are garter, hognose, and the biggest being pine snakes.

    Awesome! We are hoping she turns out, some don't and it's always a bummer. I like savage and Abby. I have been saving a few names for my future dogs (anyone else do that?? Lol) Hobo, banjo, and ninja, not sure if ninja fits her tho.
