    Loved Marguerite Henry.

    Another favorite was The Golden Horse of Willow Farm.

    The Black Stallion series was also enjoyed, but actually, my favorite Walter Farley book is his one dog book,...

    My deductible is now $2000. It used to be $1000, and the former plan paid much more (ER visits, for instance, were exempt from deductible) and cost a good bit less per month.

    Yesterday, I typed...

    I would say born. My most snuggly cuddler is Pilgrim. Pilgrim was dumped with his litter when quite young near a house in the country, and the owner of said house did her best to be responsible but...
  6. 911 Thinks I Called Them. Is This Common?

    Just got a message on the phone, which I ignore when I'm typing full speed and just let the machine get it. I am paid on production, and even looking over breaks your concentration and slows you a...

    One of the best definitions of what I would like in a mate is found in a song from the Music Man. "And I would like him to be more interested in me than he is in himself and more interested in us...

    I agree. When I got my dog, rehomed from someone else because she needed to be an only dog, I questioned thoroughly her reaction to other species, and I told them that if she ever went for the cats,...

    The first time I heard this on the radio, I had the same thought - wonder how many people will misapply this one. It's obviously not about the traditional kind of church.

    At least I could...

    Best wishes for the pup. I just tonight finished reading Homer's Odyssey, a wonderful book about a little black cat without any eyes who has had the most remarkable life, and he has no clue that...

    Unfortunately, saying that things work differently for different people is the truth. Not everybody gets "relaxed" from Vicodin. Some get totally loopy; I was talking to a friend last night who had...
  12. You've done everything that could be expected to...

    You've done everything that could be expected to try to find the previous owners, and had they been looking very hard, if they were that local, they would have run across your tracks.

    He's yours....

    So sorry for your loss, Frosty.

    I've never been married, but I am in a related boat at the moment. Mom and I were best friends. Not only could I tell her anything at all, but (once I was of...

    Definitely do not just figure out of sight, out of mind. Get them inspected annually at least by your doctor. Plus wear sunscreen, of course.

    Dad has now had 13 melanomas.

    Going to see Phantom of the Opera. :) :)

    I'm a little on edge as I'm carpooling a couple of hundred miles with folks I have never attended an event even local with. I am a details person, and...

    Ta-da! The Winning of Dark Boy by Josephine Noyes Felts. Only about 8 or 9 pages. :) It's in older anthologies.

    I quote from the second paragraph: "But the voice of Tim O'Malley, Dark Boy's...

    Was the horse named Dark Boy? The story something like the Winning of Dark Boy, or the Vindication of Dark Boy, or the Victory of Dark Boy or something?

    I'm pretty sure we're thinking of the...

    Yep. He was, of course, about to be gotten rid of because of his viciousness. The girl had been forbidden to touch him. Once she demonstrated by her one ride that she could ride this horse, the...

    I once saw somebody trying to long-distance wash her horse. The hose was about 15 feet too short to reach where he was tied in front of his temp stall, and she didn't want to move him over to the...

    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...
  22. 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...

    I heard a statement from one of the police officers at church a week ago - yes, we have police at church now, volunteered by the city to all churches over a certain size after several episodes of...

    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...
