    I live extremely remotely, and the vets have a wide range. NO vet practice in the area, unless already on a call nearby, could possibly do it in under 30 minutes, and only two could do it that fast...
  3. Wildfire: The Arabian Heart - Does It Get Better?

    I watch movies in 15-minute increments while eating. My most recent acquisition was a collection of 20 animal movies for about $5 or so, I think. Couldn't complain about that, and I didn't expect...

    Not only concern for wackos, though that's part of it, but I was very glad I had a gun the night that one of my horses was in utter agony, obviously needed to be put out of his misery, and the vet...

    My military brother now has a spider-in-shoe complex. Not a shrieking, run out of the room phobia, but pretty ingrained. While on assignment in a neck of the woods where they had larger spiders and...

    Must insert a story here from years ago about Sabra, my first Siamese, my heart cat. One day, Sabra was sitting on her brisket, watching me do something or other, and along came a spider. It might...

    I dislike the feel of snakes. That slitheriness against you just feels weird to me.

    I actively kill brown recluse spiders.

    Wouldn't say it's a phobia, though. I wouldn't run screaming if I...

    I have run into others with similar memories since, so I know it's not just me, though I'm sure we were the minority. :)

    Almost all bullying of me was based on grades, including at times the...

    I cannot remember one grade or age in school, K through 12, at which I ever felt part of "one big happy family" or at which I ever noticed other kids treating everybody equally.

    Down here, that normally refers to certain underwear. A type of underwear which I cannot possibly imagine being comfortable for anybody to wear, in fact, but that's probably another thread.
  14. New Book by Harper Lee Published This Summer

    Go Set a Watchman. Released July 2015.

    It was apparently written earlier, but it has the same characters as To Kill a Mockingbird, though set years later.

    I have mine preordered. Can't wait...

    Disclaimer: I live alone. No prospects for that changing soon.

    LOVE: Only one bathroom. To me, having more than one is merely wasting space that could be better used on bookcases. A very...

    She is adorable!

    I vote for Miscellaneous, which has all sorts of possible shortenings for an everyday call name. Or Secret Ingredients. Something along that line.
