    What is it in our genetic makeup, in our base being that makes one man shrug and say "oh, well", and makes another man turn hero?

    :DAll week long we've been planning to go Saturday morning pick up the chrome slug. Do some homework. Take old blue up to suches, stop by t.w.o.s for alittle while then head on over to cooper creek and do alittle trout fishing. come out at wolf pen gap over to turners corner for supper & to hear the kingfish blue revival. some body talked me into liking them on fb, & I've been tring to see them sence. sounds like a good plan right..................

    So Saturday moring before daylight the wife let's the dogs out. They're raising hell, I tell robin it's probably deer in the yard. She steps out side and yells "mark, horses in the yard, horses in the yard."

    I step out side and flash a light at 7 horses eating grass in the yard. I'm thinking :scratch if I can keep these guys in the yard, I won't have to cut the grass. About then the last horse in line takes off running for freedom, down the driveway & down the road they go.

    As a side note I've leased my pasture to a woman down the roads ex-husband.

    Back to the story I grab my pants and take off to see where these horses have gone. And yes you guessed it they are in the exwifes yard. (not a bad thing they get along fine now)

    I get robin to bring some rope & park her car in the road with hazard lights going.

    Owner shows up we make halters out of rope. We get a couple walking with us we head up tru a field of knee high wet grass, rest of horses follow us :thumb yea this is gonna work. I get to the top of the hill (fatman breathing hard:lol3) i'm by my self, well except for the horse of course.
    I turn the horse loose in the upper pasture start back to see what happened to every one else. You guessed it the horse I put in the pasture bet me back :fpalm

    [​IMG]


    Now theres 6 of us and 7 of them so we managed to get em back in the pasture and get the fence repaired & i felt like I didn't need to go to the gym :D


    Robin was taking the neice & nepews for bookbags, etc.. She cut that short to take me to get the chrome slug. We got there & they'd forgot I needed a back dounut. So we left it there.

    :rofl oh well

    We got home did some homework, some napping :snore I was on the computer, when I said old shit horses are out again... wait not horses

    [​IMG]


    I got the bike ready, cooler, jackets, fishing poles, she got up & :dog the rain set in.


    ok we gave up on today, theres always tomorrow.


    as the peacher said this morning "all is good"

    well sunday we finally made it to two's, as we're about to walk out the door robin says do you hear that. We first thought it was the water heater,but it was a pipe busted. Now that we know where the problem is we can worry about it later. (my idea not hers)

    we got rained on some but not much, ya can see the clouds on our left we turned right

    [​IMG]

    we took a break here & were thinking about wetting a line, but it started sprinkling on us.

    [​IMG]


    plus if there was a trout out there he was probably hanging onto a rock instead of worrying about eating

    if he could see a spinner in that mud

    anybody recognize this?

    the old cycle barn, back in the day, you could actually buy a new Harley cheaper than you could at the dealer.

    How they did that, I don't know. Back then most Harley dealers weren't much bigger than most living rooms.

    They actually bought the dealership that was in oakwood and opened up a new shop next to 985. Fraisers, it was a metal building then, next as all of em did. They build the new big fancy building.
