My Horse's Achievements: Just being able to ride him - he was a rescue horse and had been severely abused. 3-17-13: Just got back from a 2 day A.R.T. Clinic at the LBJ Grasslands in Decatur. Awesome clinic, great place to ride.

How We Met

Bought him out of pity, even though skin and bones, there was just something about him, I couldn't resist when I stopped in to see him and he came over and put his head on my shoulder. Finally found Steven's Natural Horsemanship and everything finally started coming together for us. He is a Holstiener/Sadd- lebred/Morgan/? crossbred and is a lot of horse for an old lady to ride. (See more pics below).

Well, if a heart attack and 2 surgeries don't slow superman down, nothing will. Hope he regains his strength fairly soon. Dang Lasix. Will he have to stay on that, or just during the recovery phase?
Still not much here except the never-ending to-do list. The horses are fine though.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it got hot and humid today! Honey and I got our walk in a little later than normal this morning, but was still 75% in the shade! We did our 2 miles. Then I went and hit Wally World for groceries, want to make something over the weekend in the crock pot and needed just about everything! Got home and the truck was reading 82F, so I turned them out right away! But it was a little humid and very little breeze, they only lasted about 2 hours. Bugs were a pain! So in the barn in front of their fans! Hoping to ride tomorrow late morning, and hope it's not as hot! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
Prayers for your husband's recovery!
Wedding fever is going on with us and my son's wedding Sept. 30th!! They plan to go to Santorini for their honeymoon. Poor Rocky just has to stay on vacation unless I sneak a ride in somewhere. Blue will stay with my friend where Rocky is the rehearsal date and wedding day.

Oh my goodness, what a pain! Insurance companies are borderline illegal in how they conduct their business, certainly immoral. Sure hope you can get that stuff straightened out without too much ordeal. As if y'all haven't been through enough already! Grrrr! How is Scott's recovery coming along?
I did do a little 10 min ride on Gracie last night. I really need to get back to Allie, but she has to be tacked up and have a lot of groundwork before I ride and I don't have that much time. Sweet Gracie, I just get on with a halter and lead rope and I get a ride in 10 or 15 mins. We have a game going. She knows the end of the ride is flexing her head both ways laterally as well as vertically at a standstill. So I've been trying to sneak the reins off her neck from where they're resting looped over her withers, and I get them maybe a 1/4 inch off her neck and she tucks her nose in. Got all kinds of slack still in the reins. It's so funny, she's nailed it every time. It's her way of saying, "are we done yet?"
Well, gotta get the day moving. Hope you have a great thur.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a good day! Weather wise too, but a little hot, but some breeze! Went down to the Acme and Greg donated about $400 worth of small and large filled bones for the doggies! They will be great for them in their crate during the day to chew and play with! About 60 of them! WOW! Got home and Honey and I did our walk, about 1.75 miles as the humidity was getting to me a little. Then I mowed the lawn, poor mower is blowing oil worse each time! But I got it done! Then got the kids out for a couple of hours, flies were a little pesky! A few of you asked about the hock injections. Yes it depends on the horse and how long they last. I've been lucky to get about 18 months out of them. They do both hocks and all three joints, lower, middle and upper. It's just like me getting my knees injected, same stuff! Went to visit Kevin and Winter, Winter gets her sutures out tomorrow and off comes the cone! She was kissing my like crazy! Loves her Aunt Marion! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl, yes, as far as I know, Koot is doing great with his new buddy and I'm sooo happy the shed is up!! Wow I am so sorry to hear about all of this. They are denying almost 100% of the claims? How can they possibly do that? As if being sick wasn't stressful enough, they have to add this crap to it! I'm sorry you're dealing with all this. I hope it works out though. Voted.

Well, I guess it's good that he sort of felt like walking out to the mailbox? Maybe he'll be gung-ho in rehab. When does that start? How's he doing otherwise? Are you both getting better rest?
Not much here. It's back to dry and hot here too. I worked 2 in a row mon-tue, is why I wasn't on yesterday. With the drive in and all, there's only time for work and sleep those days. And I've caught a cold, grrrr. Mostly I'm grumpy cause I haven't had time to ride except the quick ride on Gracie the other day. Might do that tonight as well.
Well, hope your hump day has been a good one. Take care.

Hi Cheryl Been thinking of you and Scott. I hope you both are resting. I was going to call but I know there is a lot of adjustments. Know I am thinking of you. I'm on a heart diet. It is really hard making the adjustments. Tell Scott he will get used to less salt. I never thought I would but I did. You actually eat someones cooking and go "to much salt" LOL Please feel free to call for support. Not easy. Love Vicki

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well we got lucky and no rain, just some wind from Jose! It stayed east of us and on the coast mostly! Sun was even out part of the day while south and east of us got rains! So Honey and I did a 1.75 mile walk today. Then my day was the best it's been in a long time! Kayla came up and rode Paige. I had her groomed and tacked and just finishing lunging when she got here. OMG, she dropped the reins, I mean a pleasure drap in them and rode her, she moved beautiful! No marey faces, no tail swishing, no pinned ears, nothing but a happy face and licking her lips half the time when Kayla stopped to pat her on the neck! Yes, she agrees, hocks are a little sticky, so I'll have them injected the first week of Oct. Kayla's gonna try for once a week to come and ride her! I'm so happy! This will be the first good nights sleep in a long time! After that they all went out for a couple of hours. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl, oh my gosh what a pain in the butt! He definitely doesn't need that sort of stress right now, but I'm sure it will get worked out eventually. I hope they end up paying for all of it, but it sounds like the doctor would be on your side so that's good. Yes, definitely happy the shed is up! Can't wait to see my boy again tomorrow after work. I don't know how many week day visits I can do until it's just too dark :( Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. So it was so foggy this morning, I couldn't even see my barn from the house! It's only about 125 feet away! It did burn off and got a little humid early in the day, but then a breeze kinda came about! Honey got a 2 mile walk when I got home from the truck servicing. Then I just turned them out to enjoy the pasture time, as tomorrow we're supposed to get some of hurricane Jose along the coast with rains inland and some winds. If all goes well weather wise, Kayla that used to work and ride Paige a couple of years ago is coming up to work with her and I. She's really good and knows how to feel which leg if any that she could be off on, and is really good about feeling for hock issues. So I can't wait! Then we'll go from there on what's going to be the next step. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl! I am so happy to hear that Scott was able to come home. Aww that is so sweet that his cat missed him. I hope he does well at home :) My husband and I got the shed together Sunday morning. It only too about 1 1/2 hours so really not that bad. I was able to get all of Koot's stuff out of my garage so now everything is where he is :) I put Koot and Maggie together when I got there about 9am and left around 11:30am and they only squealed twice at each other and then everything was okay! I haven't heard anything bad from them since so they seem to be getting along enjoying the space together! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

So glad Scott is home and you were able to get all his meds filled and together. Hope the both of you can rest better now. You didn't show him the bill for just a week's worth of his meds, did you?
Don't know how much it cost to take a horse to the clinic, but I couldn't believe the people who were just doing their own thing. Maybe they were just trying to expose their horses to a crowd, but there are cheaper ways to do that. One girl had a mustang there that she had obviously put a lot of time into and it was fun to watch them.
Yesterday wasn't much fun around here. Got an email from the algebra teaher that there was unfinished work that would get 0s if not done by mon, so Madison and I spent 3 or 4 hours working, much against her will, on algebra. I got a few little chores done late at feeding time, but was otherwise inside all day. I did find a decent price on west nile/wee/eee vaccines and ordered them.
Well, headed to work today and tomorrow, so I'll probably not be on tuesday. Hope your week gets off to a good start and Scott continues to improve rapidly.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well another nice day, up to the high 70's and finally got a breeze around noontime. A little humidity before that. It was hot riding in the indoor, temp in there was about 82, but not that bad really. Paige was good, just have to have that rear looked at, she will jog up really collected and long trot beautifully, but just don't want to collect at the lope that good. So that's telling me the hocks need injecting. Honey and I did a 2 mile walk again this morning. Kids were out for another 2.5 hours, pastures are being kept nice and trimmed! LOL! Football Sunday, so far a couple of my favorite teams won, but the Jets got smashed! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Kinda glad they kept Scott one more day, he was a really sick man just a few days ago. Hope they get him discharged at a decent hour today. And hope you got a good night's sleep last night.
I never used to mind roofs, but it's been several years since I've been up on one and it bothered me a bit this time. Oy!
I did go see Buck in the morning, figured I'd kick myself if I didnt. He has a totally different teaching style from the big clinicians in that he doesn't spoon feed you; you've got to watch and listen closely to learn cause he's only gonna show you once. The riders who wanted help got it, the ones who didn't ask for help didn't get it no matter how bad they were falling apart. But that's fair. I picked up a couple new ideas, things to try a little differently, and I got to practice on sweet Gracie bareback in the evening.
Got 2 big round bales bought for the winter, (need 2 or 3 more), trimmed little Cinni, did groundwork with Allie, and my friend came over and cut the risers for the deck stairs. Had a funny thing happen at feeding time: I was hooking the lead rope to Dee's halter when she decided to rub her head on me and, somehow, the lead snap wound up snapped on her nostril, lol. Boy, was she surprised by that! In all my years with horses, I've never had that happen.
Well, headed to church. Still loving our "new" pastor and his family. We celebrated their 1st year with us back in august; can't believe it's been that long. Anyway, hope you have a great sunday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it went up to 79 today with a little breeze, but it was hot and humid in the indoor! So on went all the ceiling fans and door fans! Honey and I got in a nice 2+ mile walk in this morning. Then the arena was cooled off and I worked Paige out. I'm thinking she might need her hocks injected! They haven't been since Jan of 2016, so she's due! Went over to see Kevin. Stayed a while there and petted Winter! Got home and turned the kids out, they were out 2.5 hours and I noticed Indy being bothered by some flies. So got them in. Watched some college football, yep, I love my football. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yep, that's a pain with weekend discharges, getting to the pharmacy on time. Did you get some good sleep last night? Prayed the docs would have wisdom about when to let him go, not too early. Will he have to go to outpatient rehab, or will they come to you?
Mattie is so stressed and worried over Algebra. Honestly, I am too. She'll probably never do well on a test, she just can't retain how to do math problems, even if she gets it one day, she's lost it the next. And no one seems to hear me when I tell them that. She can get into some study halls with her teacher for some one on one help, so we'll try that first. They may want to see that first step taken anyway.
Got the shingles replaced on the barn yesterday, and let me tell you, I did NOT enjoy the experience. What looks low and gentle from the ground feels high and steep from on top. Most of the ones that blew off were from the overhang, and I'm not sure I'll replace those cause it'll need a new roof in the next year or two anyway. They had put several layers on the overhang so I think it'll be okay for now.
Still haven't decided if I'll go see Buck Brannaman. I've waited several years for him to come back to this area, but I can only go for part of today out of his 3 day clinic, so not sure how much I'll learn.
Well, hope you have a good saturday, and discharge, if it happens today, will go smoothly.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well, started out a little overcast and then cleared off! Never did get any rain today, yay! So Honey and I did a two mile walk this morning. Then I worked Paige out. While she was on the wall, I went and visited Kevin again. Came home and out they went! It was warm, 79 degrees, sunny and a breeze thank goodness. They were out 2.5 hours and then Indy was getting antsy! He wanted in, drink and poop time. Amazing how mine will not go potty outside and won't drink from the buckets of water either! Then I decided to wash and wax with that stuff (TechShine) my bit tractor! It's all ready for the harsh winter!

Hate he had the fluid build-up and needed Lasix. Yeah, I'd be a little scared about taking him home so soon too. Sure hope he's feeling better today. Continued prayers and will watch for updates.
Got Mattie's grades (it's only the 2 or 3 week mark). She has an F in algebra due to a bad test, grrr, but As and Bs in everything else. If I'm home to sit through algebra class with her, I can help and she does pretty good. We're gonna try to hook up with that teacher's study hall. Still haven't gotten an answer from her on tutoring.
I finally got the shed door back on yesterday. What should've only taken 2 hours tops took 2 days (got the wrong hinges, so busy with other stuff, had to peel back the aluminum skin on the door, etc), but it's finally done. Hope to get around to the shingles on the barn today. The roof on the pasture shelter is gonna be the doozy. The horses are fine. Winter coats are just long enough to give them a deeper color and feel soft, but not shaggy yet. Boo-boos still need some attention but are granulated in, just need to regrow skin.
Well, hope you have a great friday. Take care.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. YAY, Kevin came home about 6 pm last night. Was over there for a while with him today, he's upright and walking, slow but walking. Winter was very happy that daddy's home, but she came and sat with me for almost the hour I was there! He was jealous! LOL! Didn't get much done with the horses today, rain on and off all day long. Twice I tried to walk Honey earlier, we'd get about 100 feet and down it came. So I went to lunging Paige and doing showmanship with her. Indy got a spa day. Then they got hay and fresh water for lunch at 3 pm. About 4 pm my radar said I had about an hour of open time for a walk, so Honey and I did 1.75 miles. Sure enough a little while later, down came the rain again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Soooo glad Scott is feeling better, well, good enough to complain about the food. Did he get moved out to a floor bed yesterday? Now the rehab starts in earnest, huh? Something else I'm sure he'll appreciate, lol. Is the drive getting any easier? At least you know your way around now.
They finally got the power line fixed yesterday afternoon. Every time the wind blew, the tree would sizzle and smoke, but thank God it never went up in flames. I'm sure the neighbors were excited, they had been almost 48 hrs without power. My daughter turned in to the grumpiest thing ever just cause ours was out an hour and a half while they did repairs, and then instant smiles and giggles when the power came back on. Oh brother! She admitted to being spoiled, lol.
I'm dying to ride, but I'm so covered up with chores, continuing ed for work, repairs from Irma, I may never see a saddle again. Ok, that's an exaggeration, but it feels like it. Grrrrr. Maybe if I drive the truck more often to make up for it, lol.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well this morning and early afternoon were a running around type of day. First had my annual mammogram test. Then hit a thrift type store for a tarp for the wood when it gets here. Over to my orthopedic doc for my right knee. It's not seriously thank goodness. Inside behind the right knee left side is just the hamstring being pissed off from favoring the knee at times. Out side on the extreme right of the knee cap, it's the arthritis just acting up, so for now take an Aleve on days when I'm gonna work it hard or ride. Ordered the Synvisc One for both knees, but will probably only do the right knee on Nov 22, has to be 6 months since last injection or Medicare won't cover it. Got home and first stopped at Kevin's and walked Winter, she's doing well. Came home and turned the horses out right away, as it was cloud over and rain moving in. Then Honey and I went for a walk, cut short by rain drops, only did one mile. Then it stopped. Horses only got an hour and a half outside, cause then the real rain came! Lasted about an hour, and then the sun came out. Too late, not playing this game anymore, stayed in the house! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Sending Prayers~
Glad the hurricanes have passed. I had two of my sisters in the paths of those storms, one in Texas and one in Florida. Thank God they were spared any major damage. We are having some beautiful weather here! Cooler temps and dry for a change. Catching up on plenty chores at the pasture. Will be working with and hopefully getting a ride or two in on the horses. Enjoy your week!

Goodness Cheryl, how scary that must have been! So so glad they were able to get him to a good hospital so quickly (had to laugh at the horses' reaction to the helicopter-a giant pterodactyl!) and get him treated. Hope he's eating and talking better today. Did you get any sleep last night? You've gotta be exhausted too. Will he be moved out of ICU today? Continued prayers for him and for you.
What was left of Irma came through Monday. My neighbor, who's a pilot, said the sustained winds were in the 40s with gusts up to 60. I can believe it, I've never personally heard the wind sound like that before. I can't even imagine what 100 mph or 185 mph winds would be like, as poor Puerto Rico, islands, and Fla experienced! Lost quite a few shingles off the barn, the roof off the horses' shelter, and the door off a storage shed. The neighbor's power pole got taken down by a tree, so they've been without power since Monday night and it still isn't on. The power lines are stretched downward through one of my trees and it's been sizzling and smoking ever since. I spent a lot of yesterday watching it in case it broke out into flames (I know not to touch or spray water on it). Fortunately, God's protected us and the tree seems to have been burned away from the wires and isn't smoking as much. So that's our excitement going on. I have a ton of work to do to repair this and that, but grateful that the animals, house, and ourselves are all okay.
Well, hope you have a great wed. Take care.

Just dropped in to see how everyone is, I see Marion still pops by everyday to see us. Unfortunately I'm still in a bit of a slump, I'll get thru this. Everytime I get to feeling sorry for myself I realize that it is worse for someone else. Prayers Cheryl for Scott's speedy recovery. Prayers for Florida and all those in the path of the hurricanes, i have some family in Florida that I have not been able to reach, I'm hoping that everyone is safe and it is just that they still have no power. love to all

Come visit me, Sterl May & Blossom, Angel Sassy Mac Mar 8/95-Aug 8/07 & Angel Royal Mes Apr 16/02-Dec 3/16.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. What a wonderful beautiful day out. Was about 76 with a nice cool breeze. So Honey and I got our walk in, about 1.75 miles today. Then I had to do a couple of things and go and take care of Kevin's dog, let Winter out and check on her sutures. Got home and decided to just turn them out again, 3 hours today. Then I weed whacked and mowed Paige's pasture. She can use the one in front of the barn tomorrow, as the natural spring has dried up again, yay! Good day, tired for sure! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl, yes about your husband. I saw you posted that on Facebook and am really sorry to hear that happened to him. I'm just glad to hear that he seems to be progressing. I'm here if you need anything! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it warmed up to about 74 degrees and no wind today, ever so nice out! Went into town and got the load of left over Sunday papers for the rescue retreat dogs. Got home and Honey and I took a 2 mile walk! Then showered and went to the chiro and then food shopping! Much needed food shopping! LOL! Got home and went right to the barn and turned the kids out! At least they got 2 hours out in the sun and pasture grass! Then Honey and I unloaded the groceries and put them away. Sat in the backyard in the shade admiring the horses grazing! They are saying that Thur, Fri and maybe even into Sat we'll be getting the left overs from Irma! Just rains. Heard from my one friend in Royal Palm Beach he's fine. Have heard from my cousin and her husband on the West Coast in Venice, they got hit harder! Prayers for all, and now in Al, GA, and TENN! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
About the only thing I managed to accomplish this weekend was giving Blue a bath and clipping his nails, which he hates. Now he is ready to start Trick training class tomorrow. He is fluffy for now at least! My sister and niece were safe through Irma in Central FL, they only had some damage, like the gate broke off and debris is the yard. Lucky!

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it did get warmer today, made it to about 71 degrees, nice and sunny, but a breeze! Honey and I got our walk in late in the morning. Then when I talked to Kevin at the hospital, he asked if I could go over a couple of times and walk Winter. His daughter wouldn't be up till late in the afternoon and the mother of his child was out! So I made a couple of trips over to leash walk Winter. Mowed the lawn and had the kids out for like 2.5 hours in their pastures. But I did have sheets on them. Very windy out in the open. Watched some Football, but tonight's my team the Giants! 8:30 start time, I'll be up till 11:30 probably, gonna be a sack of tired crap in the morning, I'll be! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Wow, Sunset wasn't bothered by a flapping trash bag?!!! Is she feeling okay? Lol. Glad you were able to mess with her. And that's cool that you're doing pre-ride stuff with Lilly and the bosal; means a ride is coming up soon, yay.
The hurricaine seems to be stuck between Fla and Cuba, bless them. They keep saying it's supposed to hook and head up the west coast of Fla and then inland, but I just don't see a storm of that size doing a sharp 90 degree turn like that. So I'm going out on a limb with my own prediction that it'll either fall apart where it's stuck, or head into the Gulf and maybe slowly turn north toward western Ala or La (hopefully not Tx). Personally, I'd like to see some rain from it (but not flooding, like you said), but I think it's gonna miss us entirely.
Well, I'm supposed to head north as well...into work, both today and tomorrow, so I probably won't be on tomorrow. Hope the rest of your weekend goes well.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. WHOA, who let the cold in! Only 44 this morning and never got above 61 here on the farm! But the wind, and I mean wind make it feel like the mid 50's! I'm not ready for this! So went and did a few errands this morning. Then got the kids out, sheets on for sure and they're still on them in the barn! Honey and I got in a nice invigorating walk for sure! I wanted to mow the lawn, but is was just to windy for me! Hopefully tomorrow the wind won't be as bad and they say a little warmer! Haven't heard from Kevin today, but last night he told me they have him on a treatment for COPD every four hours. Plus on detox meds for his beer drinking problem! He won't be out of the hospital till at least Wed this coming week! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Our temps have been crazy low too, 50s in the morning, high 70s in the afternoon. But you're right, sure feels good. Maybe we'll see more color than usual this fall.
So are you doing some groundwork with the bosal? Thats cool. How does she seem to take to it? Thats exciting that you're looking to ride by Monday. Oh yeah, you're probably right, fungus with those string girth makes for sores for everybody.
Poor Sunset, attacked by the detangler, lol. Scared of detangler, but will risk breaking legs kicking through the fence at another horse. Yep, sounds like a horse.
Sure hope that huge hurricaine isn't headed for TX, but it looks like it's gunning for the Gulf, ugh. Y'all sure don't need that monster after Harvey.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well chilly but sunny today. They said it hit 72, but with the breeze (wind)
sure felt a lot cooler, like sheets on the horses for turnout and a light jacket for me! Honey and I got our walk in this morning, did another 1.5 mile walk. Later I went and lunged Paige and we did a few showmanship set ups. Then turned everyone out since it was sunny. Till the sun showers hit, but it was more of a misty type light drizzle! Left them out, the clouds were passing through! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
No horse time until weekend, but that is nearly here! Last night almost got caught in a T-storm when walking dog. Came up quick as there were blue skies when I left. Lucky a neighbor driving by saw me and picked me and Blue up for a car ride home! SAVED! But, I missed the double-rainbow after the storm that my friend where Rocky lives saw!

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well Honey and I got in our walk this morning around 10 am, it was cool, only about 62 at the time, but felt good, light jacket on me! She was wearing a fur coat! LOL! Got home and did a couple of things inside. Then went and lunged and rode Paige. While she was drying off on wall time, I dragged the indoor, nice and fluffy again! Should have really done it before I rode, but once I got in there, I said I'll stay at the north end where it's softer and deeper. They then went out for about 2 hours of pasture time. Two middle larger pastures weren't too bad, we did get 1.5 inches of rain yesterday. So the pasture in front of the barn had it's natural spring at top level again! Had to go over twice and let Kevin's dog out for him. He's in the hospital with his back! It's really killing him, he can't walk at all. Finally at 2 am they got approval for sedation for the MRI of his back and his hip and leg. They so far found a cyst on the lower back sitting on a nerve! Waiting for approval for a Spinal Injection from his insurance. Will try two of them, if the Epidural don't work, then he'll need surgery to remove the cyst! Looks like I'm in charge of Winter his dog for a while! She's really cool. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Was so sad to hear that Buckshot was really dead, after that little while of hoping he wasnt. What a roller-coaster for the owner.
It was great talking to you last night. Gonna try to get by the DMV and insurance today so I can get it in my name. I showed proud mama pics to everybody at work yesterday, lol.
Hope Lilly works better in the roundpen for you. Miss stiff Allie tugged pretty bad when she was younger, and she still likes to travel around with her head looking outside the circle, but at least she circles close enough to not tug. I still do at least a little lunging before every ride because of her youth and high energy levels. How'd Lilly do with the clippers?
Be interesting to hear what the saddle maker says about Lilly and your saddle. Do you think she got the girth sores from too long a girth, or one that didn't fit right?
Well, better get this day in gear. Hope you have a great thursday.
