Last Monday I went skiing. Where I went it was really, really icy. It was hard to even just walk with normal shoes without falling down. Anyway, I was on a freestyle trail, and I went on some ramps. On one of them, though, my ski got stuck in a small hole in the ice, and I went flying, and landed on my wrist, breaking it.|

Mom always said she would never get another dog after the first one died. Now she has an adorable, sociable Chihuahua and he brightens up her life.|

Students in an advanced Biology class were taking their mid-term exam. |
The last question was, 'Name seven advantages of Mother's Milk.' The question was worth
70 points or none at all.
One student, in particular, was hard put to think of seven advantages. However, he wrote:
1) It is perfect formula for the child.
2) It provides immunity against several diseases.
3) It is always the right temperature.
4) It is inexpensive.
5) It bonds the child to mother, and vice versa.
6) It is always available as needed.
And then the student was stuck. Finally, in desperation, just before the bell rang indicating the end of the test, he wrote:
7) It comes in two attractive containers and it's high enough off the ground where the cat can't get it.
He got an A.

Speaking of school, after a 12 year break I finally obtained my 1st degree from the University of Arkansas. Now I'm 2 years away from my Criminal Justice degree. I am taking American Government, a CJ class, Sociology, and Biology II, working 40 hours a week, raising 2 children, and sometime in between, trying to have a few "pops". Such is life. I feel I am truly blessed, and I am thankful to have the ability to provide for my family...|

I watched the film "Ted" last night. Apart from the scenes where the eponymous hero is ripped apart and resurrected, I wondered if it would have worked as a more standard story of two friends whose relationship is threatened by one of them falling in love with a third person?|

You would have had to know my husband personally to relate to this story but here goes. Don was always a man with Cadillac wishes on a Volkswagon budget. His love of horses and livestock salebarns were a weekly passion. Many times he came back from the sale with a new live purchase. He put no thought into the fact that, with a family of five and minimum wage work, PERHAPS the money could be better spent on groceries.|
We lived in a house that had a small barn attached & barns were meant for animals so it was Don's duty to fill it. He already had a palomino quarter horse in one stall but one Saturday night he brought home a brown Shetland pony. He put this pony in a stall and went to bed. When he went out in the morning, he found that "Brownie" had foaled in the few hours that she had been housed in the barn. A little black pony, with hooves so small, they fit on a quarter, was up and suckling his mother. We named him Dickie.
As the weeks went on, we made a fool of him. He would sit on my knee like a dog except that he had these long legs hanging down. He followed me everywhere outside and even 'helped' hang clothes on the line by taking wet items from the basket and holding them in his grass-stained mouth.
Spring came and it was time to go to pasture. This meant a two kilometer walk. Mom walked and I put Dickie in the back seat of my car. He wouldn't stay there ----kept trying to climb bover the seat, had his long,knobby legs around my neck and finally I stopped, put him out and he walked the rest of the way.
He never got over this habit of trying to walk around with his legs over my shoulders so I had to carry a whip. The snap of it would stand him down.
So that is the story of Dickie.

My eyes are blurred as I have a cataract in one eye, I don't hear so well any more. My leg has arthritis and my back goes out . I have a leaking aortic valve.

One day there was a chicken that needed to cross a road. It really needed to get to the other side. So it clucked and clucked and walked it's way to the other side. The chicken had crossed the road. Then a coyote ran by and snatched it and had chicken for dinner.|

Here is my story in a million words or less. About eight months ago, my clothes dryer broke. Last week I had the time and the energy to go shopping. Since both the washer and dryer were over twenty years old, I decided to get both. They were delivered last Friday. The hot water faucet would not turn the water all the way off. There was a minor flood in the laundry room. They got the new washer hooked up and I cleaned up the water. They then went to work on the dryer. The valve on the gas line would not turn. They were afraid if they forced it, it would break. I got someone to disconnect the gas line. The nice man also hooked up the dryer while he was here. It didn’t work. He said “sorry I don’t do electric”. Next step, get someone who does electric. He was here yesterday. He had to replace to box on the 220 line. Hurray, now I can do laundry -- NOT. The drum goes around but it doesn’t heat. Today I called the store. They are bringing me another new dryer on Tuesday. |
