    Oh one of my favorite staffers was nice enough to take a pic with the Shortman. I absolutely love working with Miss Rodeo, she has a really fun personality.

    LC, if you are a go go type of person you would be surprised at how coffee can mellow you out. It really works good for me to calm down. The general clientele are a pain in the donkey butt that I just don't want to deal with anymore.

    Yay!!!!! in 29 hours the last of the rodeo rv park guest will be gone for good. The rv park is getting closed permanently as Oct 1 this year. I swear these people are going to drive me to the loony bin. So tonight we are going to the rodeo. Instead of general seating tickets I had managed to get reserved seats that are in a great spot just down from the chutes. Shortman is going to really enjoy it. Hope you all have a great morning, I've got the coffee on please help yourself.
  4. Check in.

    QH, sure hope things turn for the better for you and your family. Nice to see you pop in by all means feel free to stop more frequently. As for my part of the world not much different for us, work work work is what we do. Doing our best finding a little fun time during the busy summer.

    Its funny how you can instruct till you are blue in the face & they won't listen. Be told how to by a stranger & they listen. My housekeeper is Miss Rodeo Queen this year & was nice to give us two tickets for Sat night. This will be Shortman's first time & will have to find Miss Rodeo for a pic of her all dolled up. She has really long straight hair(the rodeo committee requires very big hair) & I've been teasing her about having to use Aqua Net to get the curls to stick. When she came into work told her it is safe to smoke around her without going up in flames.

    Heart of Dixie is another cute show.

    Sorry, no horse reads here. How is LJ enjoying horse camp? Shortman is sure enjoying his time at camp this year. He had to laugh because of the boys he doesn't care for went in the muck of the lake & came out with leeches. .

    QB watch Heartland it is a Canadian production & you will really like it. Very down home that will make you laugh & cry. I so love that one. I watched 1/2 episode of Stranger Things but with the busy day & not being a hubby show it is really hard to get into it. We have watched some comedy stand up acts. We really enjoyed & had a great laugh with Martin Short meet Steve Martin. Also watched Amy Fischer? that was another funny. This past week we have been enjoying Royal Pains. There are a number of movies but it is again finding what you like. Tonight Shortman & I watched Mary Popins Returns, we really enjoyed it stadly Netflix doesn't have the original so Shortman is lost when I bring it up. Heck, Amazon has it but they want you to buy it.

    All we watch is Netflix. I laugh at how people complain when the rate goes up. Heck with cable starting at $80 month do believe the $13 for Netflix is a steal. You just got to figure out what you like to watch. My only beef with Netflix is if you have a show you really like it doesn't take much to burn through a show. Or you get suckered & binge watch. Lets see: House of Cards Designated Survior Royal Pains Outlander Office Parks & Rec's Person of Interest Walking Dead Rain 100 American Horor Midwife Greatest British Baking Show There have been a number of other show really enjoyed but because no more seasons no reason to watch.

    I had put cages on mine but the plants exploded with growth & number of the branches are not supported. Gonna have to bring some twine in from the farm to tie them up if need be. Also need to trim all the lower growth so it won't take away from the rest of the plant. I'll take a updated jungle pic for you.

    Mine just started forming fruit.

    If need be you can usually find canoe paddles at junk shops.

    QB catching the big one is what makes it fun. Sure hope you all had a nice 4th yesterday. Worked all day here & hubby took Shortman to see the local fireworks. Enjoy the rest of your weekend & be safe if you are traveling.
  15. The Front Porch

    My hubby had his out. For as bad as it was they still did it laparoscopy. He was sent home same day & took about a week to feel better.
  16. The Front Porch

    PD, haven't been outside other than taking Shortman to camp (course with the top down on the car) & dewatering the dogs. Been a busy day.
  17. The Front Porch

    Good Gravy!!!! Its only 11:34am.....feel like have already put a full day in.
  18. The Front Porch

    Remember you being up at our old location. However, can't remember if you have visited since we move north of town. We have had alot of changes since the last you visited.
  19. The Front Porch

    PD, The Big Boy steam locomotive will be in Altoona July 23 on display. If you have the time would highly recommend going & seeing it.
  20. The Front Porch

    Our summer is terribly short for us up north that you just can't cram enough fun in. Guess that's why we go to sand & surf country for two weeks. That's our summer fun in December. This winter break we will probably head to TX. Have family that has been wanting us to pay a visit & there is no lack of railroad museums or excursion trains.
  21. The Front Porch

    Well we are now at the start of July. Not sure about the rest of you but I am sure you will agree that summer is officially over. Even though we are bust *** busy at work our calendar shows that summer is over. It is so full of what Shortman is doing & we are not (because of work) it is over. The shop is closed for 5 days the last week of August for a little family trip. Then school is back in session.

    That is a great article of what is happening. Think of it as pet trafficking. So because it is a "rescue" this is much better than a puppy mill(yes the mills are horrible). This also the justification for small backyard breeders ask up to $1000 for mutt pups.
  23. The Front Porch

    This is why we love our ponies so much.

    LC, you gave her a fantastic life with the upmost care & love.

    Farah, thank you for your kindness. Unless someone has a magic wand to create staff there is no easy way over the hump. Sadly in the US & Canada along with other countries we having what small business call employment crisis. It will be getting worse not better in the very near future & the general public are starting to notice. With businesses cutting back hours, slower service or just closing their doors because there isn't any help. There are people out there who are what we call the unemployable because they just can't retain any job whats so ever. Then with those who work for a very short bit to get on some form of assistance then quit. Lets just agree that the system is broken & nobody to fix it right. On the bright side I don't have to pay for a gym membership.
