I've got an idea...do you know who won BOB at Westminster the years you're thinking of? I bet a search with that would bring up the video.

I hear you about computer knowledge. Watching my kids, though, I've developed an increased tolerance of just clicking on stuff and seeing what happens. That's what they do; I get held back by fear. And they laugh at my minimal skills (in the nicest way possible.)

But computer systems aren't as fragile as they were back in the day. It's much harder to kill them, though it CAN be done. "All I did was..." "Mo-o-o-m!!"

That's the one--didn't get the show right or the date but you found it anyway.

The movement on the BOB dog at an extended trot (which is what an Aussie should be able to do) is beautiful and when he briefly breaks into a canter on his was to the BOB marker he looks like a rocking horse.

Aussies typically can trot faster than they can gallop, canter or run--and they can do it forever.

It's kind of like Tennessee Walkers--I got to ride one most of a summer and his running walk was like sitting on a sofa--his trot was tooth jarring and his his canter was slow and felt lumpy.

I think the first horse I got on was an older retired Walker. I remember his owner telling me that he was actually doing a running walk which he didn't do real often any more and exclaiming over how smooth my ride must have been.

I guess--but to me, a novice, it all seemed sorta bumpy. LOL

I imagine I could tell the difference now

LOL, no we had 2 new doors installed. The door going to the garage and then the one from the garage to the outside. The original contractors did a crappy job; that and some house settling over time left gaps where air could get through...the gap in the door leading from the garage was almost an inch so I know we were losing heat. And yeah, I know someone is going to ask why I didn't install the doors myself, well, I'm not that guy. This is the first home I've ever owned. After being in the military for 20 years and then living overseas after I got out, almost my entire life has been in rental places so I've never had to do any work like this. And I know that even if I watched a dozen YouTube videos, I'd end up having to call someone to fix what I messed up. If only 67 lived down the street from me, he could be my mentor!

He gets to my window and asks me to get out. I said I canít! The officer stopped dead in his tracks and said lawd...what is that smell💩? he said, "I got a situation going on sir!" The look on his face was priceless. I said, Sir my stomach hurts and Iím trying to get home because I.... (he is at my window and he didn't even finish his sentence) He grabs his face, backs up and says... Oh my!! I think you need an ambulance. I said no (trying not to laugh...I looked worried and sick &#129315

Officer: BE CAREFUL AND TRY NOT TO SPEED BUT I UNDERSTAND ITS AWFUL. HOLD ON.. IíLL ESCORT YOU!

You guys , I did not expect it to go this way but the Officer followed me back to my house , & waited til I got out of the truck (he stayed in his). I had to walk all the way to the door, holding my butt cheeks, and limpiní like it was hurting! No ticket written!

----------------------------

PS - Mrs67 has been driving for 45 years, never a ticket.
- but one day she was racing home, and got pulled over for 15 mph over (a few miles from home)
- she explained her husband, had truck problems...and young son had hockey practice, after public school
- but now my husband, is held up at work with broken down vehicle & son is waiting at the local arena, without adult supervision
- and anyone could nab him (I guess), he waiting all by himself...and won't know why dad, not there

Cop told wife, to drive safe and slow down...no ticket // while Andrew was a ball player, never played hockey.

Beau talked out of one ticket, in his life. I jumped a light, just turning red...but no cars coming.
- saw cop car, so Larry pulled over to the side of the road...before he put his lights on. and waited
- cop was parked on the outside lane of intersection
- he was surprised I pulled over
- I said, you caught me good...but I only do this, not even once per year
- he laughed and let me go...with a verbal warning
- 20 years ago, when some police where still human / and not just a vehicle Tax collection, profit center

------------------

Cougar Condo basement Reno. - spent $1,500 over last 2 days...trim and supplies, are expensive.
- back with Jonny, tomorrow & Friday
Will it finally be done this time?

It was funny.

And, I am a good sport and have a great sense of humor!



It was at my expense, you know.



On the bright side! I am her favorite.

Well, here's the farm report for this morning.

We got Morgaine loaded in the trailer yesterday after chores and breakfast, and headed over to the neighbor's place. The clouds were just starting to burn off, and the wind had dropped about half, from 45-50mph to about 20. It was still REALLY cold with the wind chill (actual temp was 17), but not as bad as earlier. Morgaine got right in the trailer when I asked her to, but man, she was doing the cha-cha-cha back there the whole trip over. Or maybe jumping jacks, I couldn't really tell, but the trailer was bouncing so much, it was rocking the truck! Siwwy cow!

We talked to the neighbor about picking her up next week, and that if it was zero-ish or below, we'd rather be able to leave her there a few more days if that was OK because our old (really old) trailer tires tend to freeze solid in deep cold and have a habit of going thump-thump-thump when they go around. I worry that one day we'll split one doing that, so I don't like taking the trailer anywhere in subzero temps. Anyway, he said that was fine, but if she really isn't pregnant right now, and does breed on Saturday (which if she's not pregnant, should be her next heat), he can bring her over on Tuesday when he's taking some yearlings to the sale barn. We're on the way, so if her breeding patch is rubbed off on Sunday or Monday, he said he'd just load her up with the yearlings and drop her off here on the way to town.

THAT RIGHT THERE is one of the things that make living in this godforsaken harsh climate worthwhile. Well, that, and the summers. The summers here are beautiful, a little too hot for me sometimes, but beautiful. The neighbors here are unbelievable. It's like we're all part of a big happy family, SO totally unlike living in The City was. So even if it's too cold for us to move our trailer, Morgaine has a ride home. Once again, she cried and ran the fence when we were leaving. She reminds me of myself when I was five years old and went to spend the night with my little girlfriend the first time. She was my best friend, but being left alone in a strange house was horribly stressful, and no matter how much her parents tried to entertain me and make me feel comfortable, I was NOT happy. I couldn't wait to go home the next morning, and my friend thought I didn't like her. Anyway, that's what Morgaine looks like, and it breaks my heart. I know she can't wait to come back home, too.

And then last night, Rich and I went out to do chores (the wind finally had died down, YAY!), and on the way I gave Jasper his dinner, which he carted off to his "dining room," then we went on to feed the cows and chickens (and Horus), and tuck everyone in for the night. Oh, you guys will enjoy this, we have one year-old pullet (little girl chicken for the uninitiated) that sleeps in the horse barn and sometimes has trouble flying up to the top of the wooden fence we have sectioning off a corner of the barn for feed cans and such. From there, she flaps up to the rafters. Anyway, she tried to get up there a week or so ago and missed, and now her confidence is shot. She just walks back and forth, looking up, squatting down like she's getting ready to jump, but then doesn't, and continues walking back and forth, making a very distressed sound. So I finally grabbed an empty lick tub we keep out there for extra water in the summer (and in the winter it's upside down so we can sit on it if we want), and set it near the wood fence where she was trying to get up. She hopped RIGHT up on the tub and from there to the top of the fence, and then into the rafters. Rich had already gone to feed the cats that night so he didn't see it.

The next night, "Dumbchit" the pullet was again walking back and forth, so I got the tub and set it out for her, so she'd GO, and I wouldn't have to stand out there waiting, and Rich slapped his forehead and said, "SERIOUSLY? You're giving her a stepstool?" Well, yeah. Of course. She needs the help. (But now I have to put the tub out for her every night, see how well she's trained me?)

But I digress. When I was in the cow barn feeding Cricket and Oliver and bedding the stalls, I heard coyotes yipping off in the distance. Usually, if they're far away like that, Jasper will just listen, and make sure they don't get any closer, but evidently he'd had enough of their shenanigans and went after them. He has a little escape hole he dug under the perimeter fence up on the far hill, where he can see for miles, and evidently he left, because he didn't come when I called him to have his dessert cookies. He always follows me back to the house after chores with "that look" on his face that says he can only be happy if he has another cookie. I always keep a handful of those tiny milk-bone things in my pocket. But I called and called, and he didn't show, so I figured he was out taking care of business. He came back shortly after, although I was in the house so I didn't see him, but he always does. When it gets light out, he'll be sitting under his tree waiting for breakfast.

Oh, I was going to tell Kenny, on the way back from the neighbor's yesterday, there was something lying on the side of the (dirt) road, and I told Rich not to run over it, so he moved over a little and as we went by, I saw that it was an EAR OF CORN! WTH was an ear of corn doing on a dirt road in the middle of the grasslands? There's no corn anywhere around here! LOL! It was such an odd thing to see, and Ken's story about his corn yesterday reminded me. I didn't stop and pick it up.

Rich and Alan/Mister will get along just fine!

It would be fun to send them off on a chore somewhere together. You and I just sit around and talk girl $hit.



I don't know why there would be an ear of corn on your road. I didn't do it! I'm too lazy to do something that like in your territory.

Better ask Kenny for his thoughts on that subject.

Just point out any I miss...you can send me a PM with them all. I looked back at this page to see if there were any good ones; all I saw was a "statuary" bike instead of a stationary one.

Not much fun there.
