Robyn's 26th

We all met at the bowling alley. The Kansas state women's tournament was going on, so we went to El Mezcal for lunch. I picked up the tab. Later that night, the kids all went skating. I think we're going to try bowling next Saturday. Birthday dinner today with banana cake.

The weather's finally getting better. Supposed to be in the 70s all week, but the good friday weekend, it's supposed to rain all 3 days or something. So Easter next weekend and we have to plan Mom's 75th for the 17th of April and Sean's coming up at the end of that month.

It's been awhile

Been busy, busy, busy. Today is the first day of spring - have about 4 inches of snow on the ground this morning, and it's snowing lightly now! Killing me. Hay guy coming tomorrow. Had to get a friend to bring me a bale to get me through. Scheduled for my last week in IF. Be starting my training on Lynn's stuff next week, if she has time. Have court tomorrow, so will need to work from home. The laptop is having a connection issue. It's the LAN button. Keeps going on and off. That's pretty serious, since all my JDE stuff is on it. JD doesn't compat with Vista.

Looking alot like spring here...

Yesterday Kim came out and trimmed Griff. It's so soft and muddy out there, he sank to his ankles between the gate and the hitching post. Tucker stayed quiet on his side of the fence and didn't try to bolt out of the gate either time. 6 weeks went by so fast in that respect. The sun is out and it's been in the 50's. Almost all of the dirty rotten snow is gone. Just a few patches left where it was piled deep, or frozen deep. Everyone's thinking of plants and seeds. Mom's started some this week. I have some paw paw seeds in the laundry room fridge to put out, myself.
TJ & Bobbie and I went and saw Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp in 3D last night. It was a great experience. I felt like the first time I rented a vcr & a movie, hooked it up, pushed play, and presto! The movie you want to see at that moment starts playing. The butterfly at the end of the movie seemed just in my reach. I had to stop myself from stretching out my hand to offer a landing for it. The costumes were great, and there were some repeatable lines "I need a pig, here!" We ate at GC first but the food was awful. I think because it was so late in the afternoon. Today is all about laundry, and cleaning up my room Need to top off the tanks too.

Bad, bad horses...

Finally went to TSC yesterday and got a couple of barley bags, anticipating Kenny and I cleaning both stock tanks. Came around the front of the barn, and the little monsters had gotten the shed door open and dragged everything out into the mud. Griff's blanket, fly mask, both lead ropes, the whole grooming kit off the door, and scattered everything in the mud. The snow is melting during the day, and freezing back up at night. We got the board on the barn feeder nailed back up, both tanks cleaned out and filled and the water looks so clear, it's amazing. Stock tank cleaning due again around 5/1. I got all the brushes and gear cleaned off. Have to wash his blanket, face mask, and the ropes & grooming thing cleaned yet.
