 short doggie... quickly
re donkeys... janine could not load them last night by herself-- and she had to work today-- is already on her way (6am) that leaves me...with mayge tanner and anyone else to go get 3 donkeys... she wants me to take th e second prego because she knows i will be asking brian to come vet them...and "she wasn't looking great last night..." so i will be doing that as soon as i get myself together...

plan now is as soon as tanner gets here to go get the trailer at janine's  and hopefully meet brian.. the vet.. who's office is right near groton house where the donkeys are....and  #1 get him to look them over... and then #2 pick them up and put them on the trailer... brian is as strong as a bull...
and be at the dr apt by 11:00 with the pregos in the barn here in front of the camera.

that is wht is supposed to happen--

i ordered a work horse harness for mo....
one CP  person was concerned that i was going to work mo in harness...maybe make her pull the amish buggy that we have in the arena... we might ask her to pull it-- either around here or 2 miles in a parade ( if she behaves) just for fun...  and i think she would enjoy i.. she seems intelligent and enjoys investigating all over here.. i can pull. that amish buggy ,.. it is not anywheres near what she has pulled in her life... like plows...  and being an intelligent animal i can clearly see she likes being around people - here at any rate.. and does poke around...slightly bored..
 i really don't think she wouol dmind... and i think she would enjoy the activity...

Dear Karma,
I have a list of people you missed

I don’t mean to brag, but I finished my 14 day diet in 3 hours and 20 minutes

My goal was to lose just 10 pounds, only 15 to go.

How to prepare tofu
1. Throw it in the trash
2. Grill some meat!

Kids don’t know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpeting to change the TV channel.

and then the  "me and steve" 

 boy did i get emails on that one... here's only a few....
Sheep 1 has left a new comment on your post 

I think "with Steve and me" is the correct form. Usually one mentions the other person before oneself in a situation like that.

Hi Carlene,

You need to use "me" because it is the object form of "I", and in this situation it is the object of the preposition "with".
Grammatical convention is that all other objects are listed before the one representing yourself, namely "me".
Therefore the form should be "with Steve and me".
hope this helps! :)

IN THE STATEMENT THE DOGS ARE FINE WITH ME AND STEVE, THE PRONOUN "ME" IS AN OBJECT OF THE PREPOSITION "WITH" AND IS CORRECTLY IN THE OBJECTIVE CASE.
THE TEST YOU MENTIONED -- TO READ THE SENTENCE WITH THE PRONOUN ALONE -- IS INDEED VALID.  YOU WOULD SAY THE DOGS ARE FINE WITH ME, NOT THE DOGS ARE FINE WITH I.

WHAT LIKELY CONFUSED YOU IS THAT THE PRONOUN “ME” WAS MENTIONED BEFORE THE NOUN “STEVE”. ALTHOUGH THAT'S NOT THE TYPICAL ORDER, IT DOESN’T CHANGE THE SITUATION.  IN THE MORE TYPICAL ORDER, THE CORRECT STATEMENT WOULD BE THE DOGS ARE FINE WITH STEVE AND ME.
  
WHEN A PRONOUN IS A SUBJECT OF A STATEMENT, THEN THE SUBJECTIVE CASE IS APPROPRIATE.  FOR EXAMPLE, STEVE AND I TRAIN DOGS IS CORRECT.  HERE, THE PRONOUN “I” IS THE SUBJECT OF THE SENTENCE AND IS CORRECTLY IN THE SUBJECTIVE CASE.  AGAIN, THE “PRONOUN ALONE” TEST VERIFIES IT; YOU WOULD SAY I TRAIN DOGS, NOT ME TRAIN DOGS.
