    I currently have just 2 dogs --- both rescues --- Harry, who is either a Collie or the world's largest Sheltie (he looks like a Sheltie, not a Collie), and Dixie, a true princess Aussie Shepherd. A...

    We used to throw them across a fence. Might want to try hanging something like a chain to use as a "clothesline" for blanket drying.

    Seems like more than a little BS there. BUT...at least the horses look well fed and well cared for and the facilities look really nice. I know I'd sure love to have a barn with 10 16' x 16' stalls!...

    I know someone who bought a horse out of a bucking string and made a hunter out of him. It can be done, but I'd think not as likely with the horses who are truly bred to buck. A lot of the "lesser...

    I didn't see anything but the last little bit when they were opening up the body bag --- I didn't recognize the face, but then they said something about Sweets and I was horrified! His character has...

    I contacted the city and they are sending someone out today to check on the "abandoned" car in the one driveway (hasn't moved in 9 months, no valid tags, flat tires) and the trees. Also checked with...

    Iris and daylilies are about half a step above weeds on the "easy to grow" scale! I just split off a bunch of mine and planted in 8 new iris.

    The trees are way too big for me to cut back --- I've already trimmed them as far as I can reach up with a pole pruner.

    In Missouri, if a healthy tree blows down in your yard (which I've had...

    Good idea --- I'll have to go to City Hall and find out the code, or roam the web site and see if I can find it there. I don't want to antagonize these people, but it sure as hell bothers me when...

    The Neighbors' Trees

    I have no trees at all on my property, but neighbors on both sides have crap trees that hang over the fence ---diseased box elders, diseased cedars, and a few I'm not sure about, but all have dead...

    I don't get whole costumes, but I buy any silly hat I can find. I volunteer with FIRST Robotics and always, always, always wear different crazy, funny hats. My latest addition is a Tibetan birthday...

    Papillions are adorable ---and smart, easy trained. Rat Terriers are another possibility if they like the "foxy" face. I had a smallish mutt some years back who looked exactly like a yellow lab who...

    Glad your dog is doing better. Flexi leashes are the spawn of the devil. And they are not strong enough to hold a dog who really is on a tear. Even the people with small dogs on one don't know...

    Do not jump with him cross-firing! I let my horse do that once (he was being a pig about the change) over a tiny fence. I swear I could feel his confusion as to how to get over it, which leg to...

    Ice helps, but until I wore a nightbrace, it didn't heal up. The brace never bothered me, but it sure made a world of difference. Yes, wear good shoes all the time.

    I have a friend with a Friesian/App cross --- I don't see the Friesian in him at all, but he's very cute. His full brother is more heavily built and looks more Friesian.

    Another friend had a mare...

    I was camping and had spaghetti for dinner but what I really wanted was Meatballs.

    Hopefully you'll be in a pool that is big enough to accomodate everyone. I spent over a year swimming in a 4 lane pool. The guys recently out of college or high school wanted lanes to themselves so...

    Most dogs love yogurt and will snarf it up, alone or mixed with other food. Turkey, scrambled eggs, hot dogs. I agree, at a certain point, let them have anything they want.

    I gave up and switched to a TracFone last year. I seldom use my phone, never have it turned on and with me (unless I'm expecting a call) and I don't give the number out. It's for my convenience,...

    Morons have nothing better to do but go out and rob carriage drivers. Glad they caught one, and I bet he'll spill the beans on his buddy.
