I was pretty pissed off when I read Fay Paxton's blog post yesterday - so pissed I didn't have the right words to respond to it. I like Obama, I support Obama, but I think his support of Vick is way out of line. Should it be the news of the… Read full post »
What lurks down these darkened
They say that in space no one can hear you scream. They might as well have been talking about the facility where I work. We are located on roughly 50 square miles of prairie and the nearest town is 5 miles away. After… Read full post »

Dr. Wonderful: “Even though the clinic is technically closed tomorrow, I have to go in a bleed a dog.”
Me: “Why do you have to bleed this dog tomorrow?”
Dr. W: “It’s a 90 pound husky that belongs to an ailing old… Read full post »
This has been quite the winter for cold and snow, but that hasn't prevented life and work from going on here in the Hinterland.
The first view of the morning out of my bedroom window.
The migraine woke me,
Treximate put me to sleep.
How’d I get to work?

I have always hated the basement of the house I grew up in.
My two older sisters have similar feelings for the basement. Even before I was born, and my mother purchased a piano that resides to this day in the living room, my big sisters would have to venture down… Read full post »
The first thing you need to know to fully appreciate this post is that I hate raw meat. If you’ve read some of my old posts, you’ll know that I spend quite a lot of time around dead things, so this doesn’t make much sense. I also go hunting from… Read full post »
I haven't posted in quite some time, but this was a quick and easy way to do so. Hope you enjoy my idyllic Nebraska scene!

We first learned of Velvet in October of 2008 when helping coordinate a fund-raising ride to benefit the local horse rescue organization. She had come into the rescue’s care about 2 months earlier, and was stabilized enough that she could be adopted-out to the right home.&nbs… Read full post »
Grand Prize Winners - Ice Cream in a Can
The photos on this computer are limited in general, and of me in particular - since I'm the one usually taking them. Last year the kid wanted to participate in the "4H Ice Cream in a Can" competition at the county fair,… Read full post »
The following was a story I posted to a re-trained throroughbred group last summer. Since I haven’t had much time for writing or posting to OS lately, I thought I’d throw this up for your amusement. FYI – Go Lite is my off-the-track throroughbred (OTTB) gelding, P/… Read full post »
Those of you who guessed #1 get a gold star!!! I'd forgotten some of my responses to "spider posts"...and my daughter had been reading over my shoulder and suggested that lie. I have held taratulas withought freaking, but I much prefer my pets to be warm blooded.
In an effort to provide some non-MSM info on this virus, here is the latest update from ProMED. If there's anything I can clarify, please let me know!
FYI - I have a teenage daughter at home with a fever, sore throat, headache and body aches, and I am not panicking,… Read full post »
I'm guessing that #3 was OES's lie...but maybe it was #1...I can believe #2 because even I came close to the summit :)
So here are my three:
1) I have a pet tarantula
2) I have been published in "Science"
3) I used to live in a pig barn

I find it mildly disturbing when women go rooting around for fallen bra straps in public. Yes, I’m well aware that it happens, and sometimes you just really need to retrieve that wayward strap, but some ladies are just a little too obvious a… Read full post »
One Spring several years ago, I was cruising on Petfinder and saw a very cute rabbit available at one of the area shelters. Since my daughter and 4H give me an excellent excuse to feed my animal addiction, I asked her if she’d like to get a bunny. Being young and… Read full post »
My story begins on a Sunday night nearly two weeks ago. The laundry was washing, as were the dishes. I had gone upstairs to pee when the sounds of running up and down the stairs came through the door, along with my husband shouting to my daughter to find a flashlight. … Read full post »
When I’m tired but cannot sleep,
I close my eyes and ride my thoroughbred.
He canters on his left lead,
My legs are long and firm against his barrel,
My back is strong.
The surroundings are blank.
I feel his stride, I see his legs.
We fly.&nb… Read full post »
Anyone driving down the Alda Road last Sunday would have seen two individuals walking a five acre, fallow field. They would appear to be intently searching for something. Every few steps they would stop, bend over, and touch the earth. Or so it would seem.… Read full post »
