Pete, you don't look like the old fart you sound like, a younger version of an old fart perhaps ;o).

As fer me, no way to do this stuff, not yet anyways. Once retired (an old saying of mine) I'll get the whole kit & kabootle at home, pc, printer, scanner, digital camera, etc. I've wanted to post pics of my gardens mostly but it'll have to wait.

For the time being this will have to do :

Clay, you may prefer that red gelding but the palomino was the best horse I ever owned, and thats quite a few, maybe 200.
The red gelding is a son of Scar Bar by 3 Bars(TB). we had I think about 5-6 of that breeing, all were very smart and athletic animals who excelled on the show circuit. The pictured animal & bro were 3 years high point in Western Equitation in the NyPennOhio circuit.rare for a male rider.
we always had top horses.

I used to thin/trim large trees part time, working alone a lot. One time a limb became tangled in my climbing rope, no ladders just hoist yerself up, and I hung there for about 5 hours before the land owner happened to show up. I was too far up to just cut the line. It was a real poser! After that I paid a guy to stand there & drag the limbs back.

Seriously-- if I had to say where it came from, it had to do with an episode of a show called the Outer Limits when I was a young kid, where these huge killer bees got into all kinds of stuff, and came out to kill anyone who got close. For better than a month after, I was shaking out every piece of clothing before I put it on. I had to have my mother come up with me to shake out my bedding before I'd go to bed, and even once I WAS in bed, I'd be up all night, unable to get to sleep. I can't tell you why this one show affected me so traumatically, but it did. It literally freaked me right out.

I'll see your bee phobia and raise you one even wilder.

My phobia is ... fish.
Yep - fish.
Dead ones, live ones, cooked ones, swimmin' in the ocean ones -- it matters not. They all freak me out to the extreme. I had a couple of rather gory fish encounters when I was a child, and can still remember having nightmares back then, dreaming that there were fish in my head. (Oh, the horror!) I still have fish dreams, and they never fail to make my skin crawl.

I actually can sit and watch fish swimming in an aquarium, but if I happen to see one floating dead towards the top of the tank - oh gawd, I'm done.

I love to walk barefoot on the beach, but invariably end up doing little heebie-jeebie dances by just barely escaping stepping on washed-up dead guys while enjoying otherwise blissful strolls.

And I'd love to take surfing lessons, but I know it wouldn't be the waves I'd be afraid of. It's the unseen finned swimmers, and the possibility of actually coming into physical contact with one, that prevents me from doing so.

Yes.
I'm weird.

Those are strange phobias. I have a hive of bees and I let them crawl all over me, and I have two ponds of koi and they all eat out of my hand and suck on my fingers. ..Re: tree trimming. My husband is a graduate of PSU with a forestry degree,. About ten years ago , he was cutting a branch from a three story tall thorny locust tree with a running chain saw and the branch flew and struck the ladder where he was standing..not holding on, and flung him to the ground where he missed the concrete bench by 6 inches. He was unconscious with a concusssion and two broken arms and the chain saw was still running.

You're really gonna force me to relive a childhood trauma? Well .......

I remember being in a department store - back when department stores were just that, and this particular one had a pet department. I was almost counter-height myself, just barely tall enough to peer over the top of one. I was running my hand along a counter that was piled with "sale" merchandise, and I encountered something that felt quite odd ... picked it up, and to my kiddie-horror, it was a dead fish. (Oooooh, yeah! It's on sale!)

When I was probably 8 or 9 years old, my Grandad took me fishing. I caught 17 small fish, and I'm still not sure why we didn't just throw 'em back, but we didn't. We took them home, and gave them to my Grannie, who decided to make "fish stew" for their German Shepherd. I guess she thought the things were dead, as she put them in a large pot and proceeded to boil them (or something), but they came to life and began trashing violently inside the pot. Oh gawd. When she lifted the lid, it was soup alright -- with eyeballs floating on the surface. Now, I know that neither of my grandparents were cruel people, and would never have done anything to purposely torture a fish (or a child), but for whatever reason it happened.

Probably doesn't sound like such a biggie now, but I'm still creeped out. Even after all these years.

Geeeeeez Clay - more ribbing about older women.

Many middle age and older women have much going for them - we are reliable, sexually experienced, more relaxed with a sense of humor, keepers of the family connectivity, often financially stable, and have a rich memory of many things good and bad to share. We are not wallpaper.

Gimbels in center city Philadelphia, in the book dept - I think I was about 9 or 9.
I was walking in an aisle, looking for a book, and this man came up to me, unzipped his fly and whipped his big thang out. I had never seen one before...and never said a word to my Grandmother who was in the next aisle.

'beauty doesn't have an expiration date'---

Isnt that the truth. I have always been attracted to older women, how I ended up marrying one my age, I dont know? Now, at age 60, I guess I more appreciate a woman neared my age. I dont need a young girl on my arm to impress my friends. I think my wife at 60 is way better looking than many younger women, tho it doesnt come easy for her, she walks a lot, eats properly an has pride in her appearance.

Awww, thanks guys. I am fortunate to have good genes, and I've always stayed out of the sun (like any redhead should!) and have never smoked. Whenever someone asks how old I am, I often tell them I'm several years older (rather than younger, like most women do). My reasoning is this: If I'm 50 and I tell people I'm 60, they'll think I look fabulous for my age. But if I'm 50 and tell them I'm 40, they'll be thinking "my gosh, she looks so old for 40." BTW, I always "fess up" later and admit my true age.

kwoods--I agree that beauty doesn't have an expiration date, but I think I'm quickly approaching my "best before" date. :)

fancifowl--my husband would totally agree with you! He's always liked older women. He's nine years younger than I am!

Personal circumstances must have some influence. I know a man by the nake of Kieth woods who had to influence my image of Hot topics Kwoods;

Another friend, prbably the most liberal person i know is balding w/ red hair & wire rim specs, and a bit of a belly roll for sure influence my vision of KT. I could believe some of KTs writings here make them the same person.
some times I just form no opinion but aunt Jen did seem as she should be graying with her hair in a bun and a cookbook in her lap, and ohiomom would just be a smiling, happy type, carrying a mug of coffee everywhere she goes??

Yeah, there you be, AntB!

We went through Mayberry a couple weeks ago. Way sleepier even than on the show. Andy is the only business in town, naturally.

Check it -- "Aunt Bee (er Auntjen) gets a tattoo!" (Not a gynecological exam, as it may appear at first glance ...)

Oh, that's too funny Jen. Right after you posted the Aunt Bee photo, I typed in a response that said, "Come on, Jen, show us your ink!" Then I deleted it and didn't submit it, figuring if you wanted to show your tats, you would.

How many do you have? And what's that on your arm?

LOL! I have **gasp!** nine tats now ... well, ten if you count one that's been covered up. And I plan to get more (whoever said it's addictive knew exactly what they were talking about)! The photo above depicts my first real inking experience -- the "lizard thang" on my arm is one of the fake henna beachy/tourist tats. ;-)

Jen,
Is that really you getting a tattoo?

You don't look old at all.

Well maybe a little.

But I bet you weren't shallow or unreliable, inept at anything like that when you were young either.

Tattoo pictures are very interesting, (hint hint)

Hi Swanz! Redwing is a pretty little town south of the Twin Cities on the Mississippi mostly known for ceramic crockery, Fiestaware, and shoes.

Hey Bill, did you ever get on that fishing show?

No. Actually Charlie asked me about it the beginning of this season, and I told him I had other priorities right now, that maybe once things straighten out with the economy we could do something. We do stay in contact, but for right now, I've got other things that are a little more important. Matter of fact, you want to hear a shocker? I've only been fishing once this year. I've already skipped 3 scheduled tournaments, because work needed to get done.

Yes, I trimmed an olive tree today and have at least a week worth of work for this customer. Thanks Silver, that was one of the last really big trees I trimmed. The body rebels at a certain point. Concentrating on small trees and consulting. I am giving the ladder to my step son to use in his masonry business, some chimneys are tall.

I had to come over here and try to keep conversations going since everyone is worried about it dying.

Me and the LF at our favorite place, doing our favorite thing. Relaxing after swimming all day. At the lake. Boy he looks like his daddy. My hair, my freckles, the rest him :)

Great genes! Most people guess at least 10 years younger.

That reminds me. When Ping was leaving, he was always so kind, and a great scientist, he told me how he appreciated the help and that he and Ling would keep in touch. He also told me, when he first saw me, he thought Dr. R hired a "young" secretary. He said it in such a way, that just made me laugh! I guess he figured out I was there for more reasons than that. Seemed that way. Well, I'd certainly earned his respect.

Marshall-- no, I've just redistributed it. :-) Literally working my butt off until the last week since april.
