I'm a TECHIE....

My daughter's grandfather (my father-in-law) got a horse today (Sunday). He and I spent the day putting up a fence and a gate and riding the horse a little.... Okay, if you are reading this and you are not in Arkansas, you may not know that it was 100+ degrees today! Now, for a good ol' boy, maybe that's not a big deal... I am a transplanted Yankee who works in his office, and sits at a desk for most of the day! I am a TECHIE, for crying out loud! When my father-in-law handed me the barb wire pliers, I knew I was in trouble! Okay, for the record, yes, I can change a fog lamp without looking, and I can 'mend fence' now.... As George Jones would say, I'm a High-Tech Redneck... LOL, literally, as a matter of fact....

I am a lobster (in multiple ways, in fact)... At least I was smart enough to put my AT&T ballcap on, and I did grab a bottle of water at some point (it is all something of a blur now)...

OH, DUH! The horse's name is........(drum roll......)..... DAISY! :-) She is a Thoroughbred - a retired racehorse, in fact... I'll get more details, I'm sure! And, of course, we can't beat the price... though, what's the saying about looking a gift horse in the mouth? Hmmm....

So, I am red, dead tired, and I learned something new today... Not bad for a city-boy... (Now, where are my baseball cards, apple pie and Dodge Ram? You thought I was gonna say Chevrolet, didn't you? LOL)

I think I had something else I was going to say tonight, but I am wiped out, so I'lljust say good night, Gracie.... Good Night, Gracie! (For those too young to know, that was an old George Burns bit... George Burns was one of the funniest men to ever live... Google Him...)
