    Considering that the last property I had an appointment to see got snapped up 20 minutes before my appointment, I think I have a pretty good idea. ;)

    I don't want to hound this person, but the ad...

    Also really liked the Behr paint/primer. It was not expensive and has worn well, and the color I picked has incredible dimension to it. Will use again.

    No, because I have no interest in playing games. But I would say no if I weren't interested, or weren't interested right now, or wanted to get to know the person better first, or wasn't in the mood,...

    Then you can keep her number in the back of the brain and maybe use her for some routine vaccinations or something- it's never bad to have a second number to call for emergencies- but having...

    How old is this person?

    I see you're in VA. Instead of a thing, would she enjoy a trip to DC to visit some historic sites, museums, etc.?

    A show not sanctioned by the USEF is not required to abide by their rules.

    I show under a different name than my legal name and can't imagine you'd have any difficulties doing the same, OP. A shirt and tie are perfectly acceptable show attire for females and males, and if...

    I judge every "Italian" restaurant I visit by their reaction to the "With anchovies, please" request.

    I braided for a barn that had a lot of pony kids and they always wanted a pom-pom. We'd do one as a lucky braid and three tiny ones in the tail if the pony had a nice tail (or a wig.)

    Yup, this is my usual peach recipe for summer.

    Peach smoothies are delightful. Peaches in sangria. Peaches and mangoes grilled on top of a chicken breast. Peaches sliced over salad.

    I believe I was quoted $40 by Ridgely at Maryland Saddlery. He is the best. :)

    My ideal would be the arrangement my sister has for her horse: stalls with fans located inside the field, horses in or out at their leisure. Horse and I would both prefer that he is out as much as...
