Haven't given any updates on my jockey training. Since the triple digits temps are gone and late in afternoon the pasture is in shade I've been riding Ole Bay ( GDs horse ). Not sure we'll be ready by horse racing season but we're making progress. Seems he's learned if he does good the fat man doesn't ride him as long. I also have improved, I can now mount the saddle from the ground. Don't have to use a stump anymore!

See you at the finish line, eventually.

A bunch of electronics that will break on me, a TV, definitely an outdoor kitchen (I don't like cooking to begin with; why would I have two kitchens?), and a working automatic step (mine is flaky - one giant leap for Tina, if not mankind).
THE JOURNEY! I am definitely about the journey. I procrastinate so much that by the time the destination is in sight, it has changed. Then I don't stay long enough to call it more than a layover or pit stop. Every event with my kids just blows by while I hold on, glance at the calendar to find the next one, and play-by-ear how to get everyone where they need to be. I hope to be a better person tomorrow than I am today and to make a few people feel good along the way. Definitely a journey!

I am living in Aurora, Colorado with one man, between 2 and 5 kids, 2 dogs, and a Thor ACE.

Sorry, I knew it was Venison, oysters are slimy and go down smoothly.

Regarding Conway Twitty, he was 59 years old when he passed away. His last performance was in Branson, MO in 1993.

The impersonator we saw today was very good. He told me all that good stuff but if you want to know more I'll send you a paper weight that you can crack against your hard head until the information comes out.

Oh Timmy,
It's getting close to that time of year. You can hang this sign where you think it will do the most good.

Jumping off the topics for a few seconds:
Anyone else seeing a banner ad between the third and fourth posts on each page and a larger one at the bottom of the page? Don't recall seeing these before? I know you see ads inside the threads if you're just a guest but I'm logged in (obviously - I'm posting...).

Ah, Wayne,

I can assure my fellow RVMutants that TNC is excellent RVMutant material.

When she said that she wants hot water, she meant it sincerely - because she's been in HOT water with me all of her life.

I've rarely been advised where she's headed so I'm certain destination matters-not-at-all.

Her life's journey is strewn with ticker tape and empty bottles of wine. There is no doubt that she loves the journey.

Her Tervuren female (Tina, don't use the B word on this thread.) is Ginger, Ranger's littermate, and her male Gringo is Roy's littermate.

And yes, she is my daughter.




Tina and Charlie (TNC)
