    Amen. A beautiful post, Frosty M! Thank you for posting that. I needed to read that tonight (and every day and night!).

    Sounds like you have got a great barn! Lessons for your daughter, a freebie for you to ride, you like the horses and the people. If the 20-minute drive is the only negative, I'd say you've found a...

    I don't blame you for being irritated! I would have been too.

    A woman might easily have done the same thing. Being unobservant is not a purely male trait.

    Maybe next time you could call him...

    I can well believe that would scare people, seeing police and firefighters coming out to meet the plane. Why were they there? The military would have been enough and I don't think that would have...

    Lots of red flags here.

    First of all, your kitties ARE having issues. They may not be "elderly" but that doesn't mean they are not having problems.

    The fact that someone peed on your boots...

    My nickname is a quite common one. I spell it slightly differently from the usual way (I started doing it in first grade to be different from the other kids with the same nickname and just kept the...
  7. Spinoff -- "Pack It Out" in Plastic, or Dig a Cathole?

    RAPIDFOXRACHEL'S thread got me thinking. Her thread is about port-a-potties for camping and is a good thread.

    I read it wondering why pay a lot for a flushable camp toilet when you can do...

    He brings me things that he sees that I need for my apartment. Even if I hadn't realized I needed them, they are things he realizes would make my life nicer. It is so cool to have someone realize I...

    NEVER black for a wedding! (Unless you're a male member of the wedding party!)

    When did it become "OK" for women guests to wear black to a wedding? Black is the color of mourning in the west,...
  12. Let's Talk About Covered Litter Boxes and Light-Colored Litter

    I am getting way too old to scrub black cat litter out of bathroom tile grout!

    Do any of you use the "crystal" litters that are light colored?

    I have been using Tidy Cats litter, because it...

    Had some relatives who basically fed their kids mac&cheese and chicken nuggets. That is all I ever saw the kids eat. Kids weren't overweight at all --the one who rode was a stick figure -- not bony...

    I need my faith now more than ever before. But "the church" as an institution? Not so much. "The church" as a family of people? That would be nice. Community with a common faith and a common...

    I feel like I have been plopped in a car and then someone came along and took off the wheels!

    We miss the old eye-roll smiley. Will you please put it back so we can use it again?

    "No Wagering in Dubai"

    I just learned this when I tuned in for the World Cup.

    I think it would be great if that were the case here in the US. No betting, just -- as the Fox commentators said -- racing for the love of...
