Dusty and his 'Guardian'

Here is another picture of Dusty, with his self appointed guardian, Ebony.

She took it upon herself to "look after" him, ( like he NEEDS that) Dusty came to us from my good friend Kim over in Cochrane , Alberta, and Ebony seemed to think that he needed to be 'protected', they make quite a pair, as she stands over 16.2HH!!!

I get a day off!!!

I actually got a day off work, so I can do some updating on my blog!!
Its back to the deep freeze again here, its 'warmed' up to -20C today, but when you take the 'breeze' into account, its probably more like -35C and its the middle of the afternoon!!!!!! Oh well, it will not last too long according to the weather guys, ( sure hope they know what they are talking about!!) We are almost throught the month of January already!!! Spring is not too far down the line now!!

The 'Girls'

All this snow is even making the 'girls' want to act silly!!

MORE SNOW!!!!!!!!!!

OK, so the last post should show you how much the snow is making me a little nuttier than normal!! here is a picture taken this morning, of the snow we have now!!

A little western humor!!

An old prospector walks his tired old mule into a western town one day. He'd been out in the desert for about six months with out a drop of whiskey. He walked up to the first saloon he came to and tied his old mule to the hitching rail out front. As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and his clothes, a young gunslinger walked out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.

The young gunslinger looks at the old man and laughed, saying "Hey old man, have you ever danced?"

The old man looked up at the gunslinger and answered, "No, I never did, just never wanted to."

A crowd had gathered by this time, and the gunslinger said, "Well, you old fool, your'e gonna dance now," and started shooting at the old mans feet.

The old prospector was hopping around and everyone was laughing.

When the gunslinger fired his last bullet, he holsterd his gun, and turned to go back into the saloon.

The old prospector reached up on the mule, drew his shotgun, and pulled back on both hammers, making a double clicking sound. The gunslinger heard the sound and everything got quiet. The crowd watched as the gunslinger slowly turned around looking down both barrels of the shotgun.

The old man asked, "Did you ever kiss a mule's ass??"

The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No, but I've always wanted to"

The lessons from this story are:
1. Don't watse ammunition.
2. Don't mess with old people, there are reasons why they managed to get this old!!!
