    Just right, Pink!

    ^^^That's neat. So that's how the railroad identified what each mule could do? Or was that done for sales? Who needed that info?

    Danyel, what do you mean by a bell shaped cut? My uncle always had mules. He'd use them to haul freight in a spring wagon and he'd dig basements with them and plow gardens. I think mule handling takes a special personality. I don't think I could do it but I like to watch them work.

    I have a gallon of carpet and upholstery cleaner that is magic. I bought a rotisserie chicken at the grocery that I think they inject with grease. It leaked all over the cloth truck seat. You put this stuff on and rub it around with your finger tips and wipe it off. Spot's gone! Amazing! Its called Folex. (No, I have no monetary interest in the company.) The snow held off so I got to go to lunch and a second hand shop. My wanderlust is cured for about a week.

    Five kids under the age of six? I'm tired just thinking about that. Doggie doo-doo in a closed up vehicle? Eewww! The overnight snow didn't happen so I'm venturing out to find a car wash and go to lunch with my sister. My truck looks like an off-road vehicle that's actually been off-road. I don't have any idea how it got that muddy. Tomorrow is St. Nicholas Day. Be sure to leave your shoes out for a gift!

    Flurries here so I rushed out to the grocery. There was no one there. It was nice shopping without a lot of traffic. QB, you're supposed to mix honey, lemon and Bourbon. It might not cure you but you'll feel better,
  7. Just some kids photos

    Is that the longest they've ever sat still? Great photos!

    Could you do what Heidi suggests and get the ponies trimmed along with yours at 8 weeks? And then have the farrier bill him for his part? Maybe he wouldn't argue with a man.

    I agree she needs to earn the right to show. Just explain Zarinna works for the privilege and she will have to also. Explain to the landlord that minies with untrimmed feet can go lame or end up with crooked legs. Neither will help his sales. You can also tell him if any of them don't need it when the farrier comes, you won't have them trimmed. Tell him if he doesn't put them on a schedule with your horses, you won't be available to help with them. And don't forget to tell him how much you appreciate having a place to keep your horses. Good luck.
  10. I'm almost an adult now lol

    It's been a year of accomplishments for you. Keep going!

    How long until the radiation treatments are finished?
  12. Master Minds...come hither...

    Good news, Pink. Keep us informed.

    I'm glad you found just the right gift.

    RRW, the return trip would be a bigger problem, with a horse and trailer in tow. Have I been talking in my sleep about cocoa? I have a cup every day. Sometimes, I have to argue with myself about whether it would be okay to have a second cup.

    Hi, QH. I was wondering where you were. I had that bronchitis stuff for over a month too. It's killer. Lyra needs to be just a tad taller to drive. As far as walking, be careful what you wish for. After walk comes run! That poor little orange kitty! I'm glad he found you.

    I spent a good portion of the day repairing my horse's hoof boots and adding gaiters to them.They must have been designed by a man. A woman would never come up with something that difficult to assemble!

    No fair! We need details.

    PD, we went to a Turkey Day buffet for years. Then the restaurant that had it closed. What a shock! So now we order a catered meal from a local fruit market. It's good and easy but not as good as the buffet was. And there are still dishes. But there are leftovers, at least.
  19. The Front Porch

    Happy Turkey Day everyone!

    How about a video tape (or whatever the modern equivalent is) of all her friends at EMS and Fire Dept. with their favorite "work stories" and memories? Tell them to keep it on the light and jokey side but meaningful too.

    Congratulations, RRW! Nothing like your own space. (I don't know why the italics.)

    I love vintage jewelry! I don't have any but I like to see it on other people.

    Okay, somebody needs to make biscuits and freeze one. Enjoy the rest fresh.
  24. The Front Porch

    I would think the frozen biscuits available commercially have all kinds of preservatives. I know the frozen dinners do.

    Geez! Mine hasn't been that good since summer. Even with medication. I have to avoid canned stuff.
