    Default Kesslers and Chron Forum Post

    Thought some might think this was interesting...Note it was dated Jan 2001

    This was written by Reed Kessler's mom.

    is right! Big Daddy likes to point out that 1n 11 years, I'll be 50 showing in the A/o's (role model: Mrs Sylvester Johnson on Superflash) and Reed will be 17. He'll be asking her to "please get on your mother's horse and make sure it's ready so she doesn't kill herself!"

    I like to think of this when I'm clipping, bathing, braiding and lungeing Perfectpony. Makes me smile! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Big Daddy is Murray Kessler, Reed Kessler's father.
    The OP is Teri Kessler, Reed Kessler's mother.

    In a post from 2001 she said Murray Kessler predicted that in 11 years Reed would be 17 and would be asked to warm up Teri's A/O hunters.

    What actually happened is that at 17 years old, Reed was on her way to the Olympics and Teri was winning in the A/O jumpers.

    I know, right? Bizarre. TeriKessler has posted quite a bit, why this post and why today? Are we suppose to find it amusing?

    I just thought it was fun to see, given the year Reed has had. Nothing else, not starting anything, just fun to think of where we thought we'd be 10 years ago...
    and where we ended up.

    They just happened to have it caught in a Forum post.

    Maybe the post wasn't set up the best, but I found it amusing to see the foreshadowing of the future!

    Do you really think I have been here for only 5 posts if I understood the OP and translated it for you?

    And you were right. It is fun to read. And think about similar situations with our own family and people we know.

    geez, vxf how do you know how long that person has been around? We only know how long that particular login name has been around.

    Sometimes reading this forum, I wonder if posters ever look in the mirror and think, "damn this is what wadded panties looks like"?

    Once I sorted out what Teri-one-R's post meant, I thought it was some amazing journey her kid made. Good for them, they should be (and I am quite certain they are) insanely proud of her.

    Everyone who is jumping on the OP ... does it matter? Is there something you could be doing other than making COTH tiresome? (p.s. I won't be returning to this thread to read your comments shredding me for asking ... but I know you'll do it anyway, for fun. )



    OP ... if you find any more like that, it would be fun to share them. Thanks!

    I'm not Teri Kessler and actually I'm sorry I started the thread.

    It was supposed to be fun and light hearted a tone which I felt had been missing from the threads in the past few weeks.

    I guess it doesn't matter what anyone writes, there are those who always assume the worst in someone.
