SuaveReno, WHich thread do you want me to deliver the Strawberry Margaritas to?
Well Rusty. Margarita's sound fine here but where did everyone else go???? I'm still [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif[/img]
As a hush falls over the crowd out of respect for the bereaved lover, another thread comes stumbling drunkenly into the room. "It's life was a lie! Everything it achieved should have been mine! My meteoric rise to success was cruelly cut short!" screamed the Terri Kessler Thread.
Suavereno, It looks like we are the only ones here. So we might as well enjoy the Margaritsa by ourselves. Where did every one go? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]
What was her great quote?
"It's so expensive to be me *sob*" [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]
Oh! Here's the thread's last will and testament:
Being of addled mind and of a bloated length, I hereby bequeath the following:
-To PamM: the list and photos of all Thoroughbred hunters from the 70's and 80's
-To coreene: the one English saddle from the Circle J rental stable
-To Mo: the past work history (verified by a P.I.) of Melissa Cardenas
-To rusty, AAJumper and Merry: a pair of TS rust breeches
-To Beezer: a visit to a board certified neurologist to have your lapse of memory investigated
-To Suave Reno: a guide for returning amateur riders entitled, "Welcome Back! How to Survive the Continuing Soap Opera that is California's Show Circuit"
-To Bumpkin and C&C: a handful of raffle tickets to be in the running for a free new horse, donated by the Flintridge Women's Auxillary Club
-And to all the others who contributed (Katey, Chanda,Taryn, Twister, WHOA!, NancyR, Justalurker, etc.), who occasionally poked their head in to contribute an acerbic comment, you all win free round-trip tickets to Louisville for the sole purpose of hunting down Scary Woman From Kentucky, throwing her into a giant burlap bag and dropping her off at the local homeless shelter where she'll be forced to adjust to life without Aqua Net hairspray and stiletto heels.
Question for Merry
WOW! Whatta deal!
Do I get the horses themselves, or just pics.....
And, with my memory, what if I want that nice bay mare that Barbi McCoy had.......... Old whazzer name. (Actually I remember that one --- it is Clipse). But I forget the name of the wonderful chestnut owned by Kim Marconi and ridden by both Susie H and Kim to many championships -- what a nice horse........ Dern, I hate getting old.
Do I get even the ones whose names escape me?
What do I get, Merry??? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
I'll gladly take any number of the horses we've discussed for $500, Alex!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]
I 'm starting tht one right after "Riders"
The rings are locked and I can't ride and more rain tomorrow. Is there a facility that has a decent indoor ring in OC???? Alas, I guess I'll go see the fearsome Threesom (Lexie, Reno & Cosmo) and give them a hug and alove (carots, corn oil and other assorted goodies.... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] )
If I get motivated, maybe I'll even cook a meal for my husband...
Questions: Do our husbands need a equine support group???? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
But I think it needs to be support group for husbands whose wives are addicted to the COTH BB!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] My husband would be sure to join!
"Hunny bunny, come here. Bill, let me straighten your toupee . . . . Oh, look, there's Merry. . . . Merry, hi, over here!"
<<Merry staggers over, Koi sandwich in one hand, Wal-Mart fake crystal decanter in another, in her rust breeches, with her ruby choker pin glowing sadly.>>
"Merry, I'd like you to meet Bill. Bill, sweetheart, this is Merry . . . . M-E-R-R-Y. Hearing is the first thing to go, you know. Merry, do you like my anklet? Bill bought it for me, once I became a trophy wife. Oh, who is that over there, in that frou-frou designer gown? Oh, the TeriKessler (one "r" not two) Thread. Wouldn't it figure that Thread would overdress? . . . . ."

Suave - if you go to the barn today, be sure to say hello to Luc for me! I had him during 99 before Helen bought him. He is so GREAT! I will attempt to post a pic...
Yes, it is pouring down rain in CA today! My mom is trying to get here from Boston, but is now stuck in Dallas due to weather. I have to now go to Ontario to get her! Alas, we are off to Hawaii on Tuesday for a week of sun and fun...
It was "Scarey" woman from Ky. Not "crazy". Sorry Pam M, hope you do realize I was reffering to her when I posted that comment. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
Merry, you know, Melissa also dabbled in the catering bus. (according to her). [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] So, shall we have her cater the affair? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Wal-Mart fake crystal decanter<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> LOL --- That's a redundacy if I ever heard one, unless Walmart has been hiding their REAL crystal decanters from me all these years. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
And N2Jumper -- nice pic. nice horse. good ride.
"Down doggie, Down. Stop doing that to my leg!!!! Who brought these JRT's to the wake, anyway???"
elizabeth, I'm so sorry! I truly didn't mean to insult your hubby when I said, "Hey, did someone leave the window open? There's a squirrel on Bill Shatner's head." Honest, I'm so sorry! I could never have predicted that the Jack Russells would've savaged Bill's head like that. Nothing like having to call paramedics to a wake!
dublin, dear, the thread left you a small gift over here. Let me find it. Oh, it's wrapped so nicely...
Huge commotion as Pam flings the assaulting dog off her leg and it flies into the open coffin... Merry has to set down the gift and extract dog from gnawing on thread's formaldehyde-infused flesh...
Oh, a "Typo Circuit" fresh off the press with a cover date of December 2000. Right on time! And it's autographed by Jim Dahlquist and Donna Storkan.
Chef now runs into the center of the room. "I knew I'd get nothing! The Merry Thread always liked dublin better!" Then Chef immerses head into brandy-spiked punch bowl and gulps like a fish...
By the way, I think I'm drinking too much. I'm seeing double. Which thread is actually the funeral???
Merry, hon, no worries. This isn't the first time open season has been declared on Bill's head. (Those toupee's actually seem to have a life of their own. I've given them pet names, you know. . . . oops, more information than you needed!)
Elizabeth hears a commotion by the casket and looks over to see coreene weeping and swaying, moaning "If I had never conceived of you, if I had never given you life, if I had never posted you, I would not have to suffer the pain of losing you." AAJumper quietly goes over to coreene and refills her margarita glass, muttering "we did the best we could. Do you want salt on the rim?" Beezer's JRT, saited by the heavy corpse meal, snuggles against elizabeth's black stocking clad ankles, whereupon elizabeth murmurred to the little fellow "you like my anklet, don't you?"

Oh, and Merry, before I make a scene, where is MY gift?
[This message was edited by elizabeth on Feb. 24, 2001 at 08:39 PM.]
This is beginning to look like the sequel to "Suffering Pines" but to the California clique, it could be even better than the Virginia oriented original.
Keep it up, gals!
she peruses her autographed Typo Circuit - the first that has ever arrived on time!! It will then be bequeathed to Chef....
Thanks, Merry, for the oh so appropriate gift. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
My able and trusted lawyers have advised that the last will and testament will be read on Monday. My ample gift of perception has detected a rat among you.
Don't deny it! Motivated by greed, crudely disguised as grief, I know which one of you is responsible for Kevorkianing the thread. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]
Should you wish to discuss a settlement and NDA, you may contact my lawyer, Glaria Allread.
