MAY 23 2016
VENTING TIME.... EXCEPT I BETTER NOT.
MAYBE CONDENSE IT  --W E HAVE HAD SOME TERRIFFIC CAMERA PEOPLE HERE LATELY..-IT WAS A FEW OF THE REGULAR LOCALS WHO  BLEW MY DOORS YESTERDAY- THEY COME AND SIT AND EAT-
THAT IS MY JOB !!  IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL IF THEY COULD GET  SOMEOFF BEAT DISCUSSION GOING....BUT IT WAS ONLY A "BLUE TOWELS WERE ON SALE YESTERDAY AT ALMY'S" TYPE DISCUSSION.
THIS IS MY WAY OF DESCRIBING A TOTALLY DEAD END CONVERSATION. MAYBE I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND-- BUT WHAT IS THE  VALUE  OF  INFORMATION ON YESTERDAY'S SALE FOR BLUE TOWELS WHICH I DON'T NEED??

I FEEL THAT WAY ABOUT ALOT OF THE HISTORY  WE HAD TO STUDY IN SCHOOL...  SO.... TWO GUYS   LEWIS AND CLARK WENT SOMEWHERE AND DID SOMETHING..  WHAT I WOUL D HAV LIKED TO KNOW IN SOME DETAIL  IS WHAT DID THEY DO-- ON HORSEBACK- RIDING THRU THE WOODS- WHEN THEY CAME UPON THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER?  PERSONALLY   I WOULD HAVE JUST TURNED LEFT AND SETTLED ON BATON ROUGE..  AND IT IS NOT JUST THE BIG RIVER... I GOOGLED IT THE OTHER DAY, AND   THERE IS MORE TO THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER THAN RIVER..  THERE ARE A BUNCH OF CURLEY QUES THAT LOOK LIKE SWAMP TO ME... THAT COULD BE DISCOURAGING ON HORSEBACK
MAYBE I WONDER ABOUT THAT BECAUSE I GREW UP IN NEWBURGH NEW YORK.. ON THE HUDSON RIVER----  BEACON N.Y.  WAS  1 MILE AWAY BUT ANOTHER WORLD BECAUSE THERE WAS NO BRIDGE.. ONLY THE FERRY.... AND ALL THE PASSENGER TRAINS THAT CONNECTED YOU TO THE REST OF THE WORLD WERE ON THE BEACON SIDE...

THE FIRST WORLD TRAVELING  I CAN REMEMBER  WITHOUT PARENTAL APPROVAL I WAS  10 YEARS OLD...,.. I HAD 50 CENTS  SO I TOOK THE  THIRD STREET BUS TO THE RIVER (10 CENTS) AND GOT ON THAT FERRY ( ANOTHER 10 CENTS) AND WENT TO BEACON ALL BY MYSELF.. I CAME HOME WITH 10 CENTS LEFT AND FELT VERY PLEASED WITH MYSELF AND DIDN'T  SAY A WORD FOR YEARS !!!
A PICTURE OF THE NEWBURGH- BEACON FERRY IS OVER MY FIREPLACE...

NOW KIDS CAN'T EVEN GO 2 BLOCKS TO THE PARK WITHOUT THE SUPERVISION OF A BODYGUARD WITH A GUN.. SO THEY GO VIRTUALLY ON THEIR IPADS.. AND WE,OLD PEOPLE, WONDER WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THEY GROW UP TO NEED TO CHANGE A LIGHTBULB.. THERE IS A REALITY MISSING.
*********
I AM TOLD BY MY DAUGHTER THAT HER HORSES WILL BE GOING TO HER HOUSE... AND WE WILL BE HAVING A TINY HORSE MOMMY AND HER BABY  WHICH GOT TOSSED IN THE SLAUGHTER PEN IN TEXAS... BECAUSE IT WAS THE SECOND FOAL SHE HAD WITH DEFORMED LEGS.... I DO NOT HAVE A CLUE HOW DEFORMED.. THE PICTURE I HAVE SEEN IS A CUTE LITTLE THING BUT  THE LEGS DON'T SHOW.  IT SEEMS TO BE STANDING ALL RIGHT.. HERE WE GO ON ANOTHER CRAZY JOURNEY..  
AS LONG AS THE FOAL CAN MANAGE - DEFORMED LEGS WILL NOT BOTHER US-- HOW COULD THAY WHEN I CONSIDER THESE TINY HORSES FAR FROM BEING NORMALLY FORMED.
WHAT I ANTICIPATE  DOING IS TO  PUT THE FENCE BACK MID STALL-- WHERE LINCOLN ONCE WAS AND THE TINY HORSE CAN GO ONTHAT SIDE... I DID HEAR RUMORS ABOUT A PREGO SOMETHIGN WITH IT."BUT THEY ALL GET ALONG  AND HAVE BEEN THRU QUARENTINE."  I AM TOLD BY JANINE

WHAT DO I KNOW?   NOT MUCH.
