How We Met

As a young girl, I loved horses. My best friend lived on a farm and had a pony named Star. I was there all the time. We lived in town and of course couldn't have a horse in the back yard. So, after growing up and finishing school and having a career and getting married, and gettig divorced ang getting remarried, we moved to the country. I leased a horse at a near by stable for about a year and a half, until I was sure I wanted the resonsibility of my own. I heard about Sterl May being available, I eagerly went to meet her, I noticed her beautiful big, soft brown eyes immediately. I put a borrowed saddle and bridle on her and rode her right there in the field with her pasture mate. I knew she was a Standardbred, but that really didn't mean anything to me, she was a horse, she had 4 feet,a head and a tail, and she let me ride her. I decided then and there that I wanted her. I asked the price and her owner told me,she always said she would never give her away. At that time Canada had just done away with our $1 bill and replaced it with a coin, a loonie. She said I can't sell her for $1, because she is NO loonie. Give me $2 and she is yours. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, I handed her a $2 bill. She handed it back to me and said " you keep this $2, as long as you own Sterl May you will never be broke". I still have that $2 bill, it is framed with her reg. papers. I promised her a home until the day she dies. I will keep that promise. I will never be broke as long as she is in my life. She is retired now, all she has to do is look pretty and keep Charlie company. She has Cushing's disease, but she doesn't know, so I'm not going to tell her, she never complains, she willingly takes her meds everyday, she just goes with the flow. She is a very happy horse
Charlie sadly passed on Dec3/2016, due to colic, Blossom arrived on Dec7/2016, hopefully to become Sterly's new best friend.

Sometimes, things just hit wrong and they can be an unexpected challenge to overcome. I'm sorry you're struggling so. Have you been to your doc to make sure there's not an underlying physical reason for your lack of energy? You know, how we check our horses for that first before we assume it's a training problem. Anyway, hope you can smile again soon.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie.

We have missed you...
I want you all to know that I do miss our chats and daily visits, thanks to all of you for hanging in with us. I am taking this one day at a time, as I told Cheryl, I had no idea that I would be affected this badly by the loss of my Charlie, maybe it is because I'm getting older, lol. Everything seems to be an effort...Sterl and Blossom are doing well. They are great buds, and Blossom is a strong, I'm not afraid of anything little girl. She will lead nicely, but as for lunging, we have not gotten too far, I have to admit, I don't work to hard on it, I don't have the energy for that either. Sterl is holding her own, I am very vigilant and actually watch her like a hawk for any signs of trouble, but basically she is e,d,p,p what more can I ask...love to all, Donna Lee

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well woke up to rain and heavy duty humidity! Rain stopped a little bit around 10 am, so at least Honey and I got in a 1.75 mile walk! Then just after I hooked up to the trailer, it started all over again! So next best thing, decided to vacuum the house and dust! I hate house work! Got that done and went and dodged rain drops to give the boys hay and fresh water for lunch. Came in and just vegged on the computer for a while. About 4:30 or so the sun came out, but it was worse with the humidity. Couldn't do anything! At 7 pm when I fed, it was like walking on a sponge! I'm so sick of the rain! We're leaving around 9 am tomorrow. So we'll be back on HC Monday night! Probably post maybe in the am how it's going and some FB Pictures if Jill takes any! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well the weather today was uncertain, but no rain, but no sun! So I was mowing very wet grass, and without the rear baggers or the shoot would have been clogged more than not! Well I text my farrier this morning and he's out of commission! 9 sutures in his finger from a horse pulling back and ripping a nail through it! So he says maybe Thursday he'll be able to at least do the rears and straighten out that flair! This mare never had a flair in her feet! Well Honey and I got a 1.75 mile walk in this morning. Then I ran to town on a few errands. Got home and the boys went out for almost 3 hours and I mowed the wet lawn and back by the manure pile and the backside of the indoor! Hopefully sunny tomorrow and I can mow those 2 pastures that need it! Packing day too, as we're leaving Wed morning! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Big beautiful blue sky and cool temps this morning! Was over by Marissa's for our pre-show clinic by 9:20 and Laura had Paige tacked up already and going to lunge. She wasn't bad, I rode too and she was okay. But when we went to do Showmanship, she's got that head bob going on, but yet her foot falls are even on the diagonals and not short stepping anywhere! Can't figure it out! Palpated her chest, no flinching, her back no flinching. I don't know! Her right hind is long on the outside and turning out, could be throwing her off, shoes tomorrow I hope! Got home by 2:30 pm and turned the boys our for a long time! No flies really to speak of and a nice breeze! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a Vote,
Have company this weekend, so not on normal schedule. Anyway, the cats were getting to play a lot and we visited my Mom at the nursing home. Hoping to get in a therapy dog visit with Blue this afternoon and maybe a ride on Rocky if it's nice this evening.
My daughter got a used truck to replace hers that was totaled. She got a 2015 RAM. I don't know all the specs, but she said she's loving it. Her other truck ran good, but was OLD.
Hope all is well with you.

Come visit me, Rocky (the blue-eyed wonder horse), Comet (has new home) & Cowboy (Thanks for HOTD 1/19/2017!).

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well that rain last night got to be really heavy duty, but at least no thunder. Rain gauge had 2.25 inches in it this morning! And the pastures and grass are like sponges again! Well Kevin never made it over to change the battery today! UGH! Started to pack up some more stuff for the last horse show next week! Then went over and lunged, rode and did only one showmanship pattern. I noticed a little head bob on jogging the pattern, but yet didn't feel her off at all when riding! So I'll bring some Bute over tomorrow and see what we got.! We're leading the state in like three classes, I really would like to finish it out! But Paige comes first, so we will see! Got home and it was about 78 F degrees with a really nice cool breeze, so the boys went out, a little muddy, but they went out for like 2.5 hours. Hopefully a couple of days of sun and I'll be able to mow and be ready to leave on Wed morning! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well overcast most of the day, and only made it to about 77F with a breeze! YAY, not to bad for working outside! Walter came and got me with the big rack truck and we went and got the new battery for the tractor and then to get the 3 tons of 3/4 inch QP for building up the barking pad for the Living Quarters trailer. Now the refrigerator will be level at all times! Walter jumped the tractor with his cables from his truck, Kevin will put the new battery in Sat morn for me. Got that all spread and built up and level. Then took yesterday's nap, I was hurtin! Got up and then turned the boys out and took Honey for our 1.5 mile walk. Came home, ate a late lunch and then mowed some more. But had to abandon ship! Black clouds moving in! Went and brought the boys in, parked the lawn tractor and down it came! Just made it in the nick of time! Bad T-Storms slated for during the wee hours of the night! Poor Honey! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was kinda hot but very humid! Honey and I got our walk in very early this morning, did a 1.5 mile walk. Decided to fire up the big tractor, NOT, battery dead! Oh well going for a new one tomorrow! It's on charge but not charging, it's like 12 years old, oh well, got my money's worth out of that one! LOL! Weed whacked the two pastures and out by the indoor. Got cleaned up and went over to work with Paige. Lunge for 15 minutes and had an awesome 45 minute lesson! Hosed her off and headed home! To many flies out there, so the boys got a late lunch of hay and fresh water. I then got the lawn tractor out and did the baby pasture, a small pasture, out by the manure pile and over on the in side of the indoor arena. By then it was 6 pm and I called it a day! No nappy today, so I'm beat right now! I hear the couch calling my name! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well got Paige's laundry done this morning. And put all my clean laundry back in the trailer. That's ready to go! Honey got in a mile walk this morning. Then I went over to the Fair and watched Karolina's student Lia show Butters, a Palomino gelding in the large pony hunters! He's so quiet and nice and even on the jumps and flats. He's really a registered quarter horse but stands 14.3 and that's a large pony hunter to those people. Stopped on the way home and got 2 bags of Paige's feed and 25 bales of pelleted bedding for the barn. Got home and turned the boys out, about 83 degrees and no breeze really to speak of. Unloaded the bedding in the barn and then started to mow. Got through the front yard and side and noticed Indy acting up! Yep, he had it with the flies! Well he lasted 2 hours anyhow. Went and brought them in and put their fans on them. Then I proceeded to finish mowing. Yards all done! More to be done tomorrow after my lesson at Marissa's with Paige. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well got a lot of little things done today. That was after I went back over to the Horse Show. Now it's the Sussex County Farm and Horse show, all the English stuff. A friends daughter, 7 years old, was riding in flat and jumping classes. KK is just awesome and has some really good pony's! Got home and turned the boys out, but the humidity was a little high and the flies were horrible! Did 2 loads of human laundry from the show. Cleaned out the trailer and vacuumed it out and will re-stock it tomorrow and put the laundry away. Also will be mowing tomorrow afternoon! Lawn is high and the boys will have to work on the pastures for me! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Woke up to 59 F degrees and rain! Rained all day long! Didn't do much other than a few things in the house and then chiro and food shopping. After that it was a major nap time! Didn't get one for 5 days and my body was in need of the late afternoon rest! So Paige did very well with Laura and she even got a 5 and 6th out of 13 in Hunter Under Saddle (English). Got me some 2nd and 3rd in Halter, and my best ever placings in Showmanship and also 2nd under all 4 judges in my Horsemanship riding class! Now to get ready to leave again next Tues or Wed for sure! We show Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sunday, finish up on the 20th of Aug and we're done for the season! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

morning my friends
Junior is all kinds of fun, he is such a laid back, kind dog, I believe he loves everyone and everything, absolutely no issues with the house cats, Charles, the shop cat is not sure of him yet. We are doing lots of refresher obedience, he does not seem to be toy motivated and I have not found the treat that is absolutely irresistible to him yet. so far so good, lovin' him. Have a great day

Junior looks and sounds wonderful. He is so handsome. 1/4" of rain yesterday has got everything greening up. Fingers, toes and legs crossed that I am physically able to ride on Sat. Back is doing better, but slowly. Will take plenty of Ibuprofen before I leave, and also picked up some Tiger Balm which seems to be helping.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we got our walk in really early! So humid already at 9 am! Got home from a 1.5 mile walk and hooked up to the trailer. Moved it over and loaded it up with all the rest of the goodies I needed! LOL! Then weed whacked all around the house and fence lines and inside the outdoor arena. Took a break to change cloths, as I was soak'n'wet from sweat from the humidity! Had a fast bite to eat and out to mow! Was just finishing up when it was getting really dark out, clouds were black over head and even with the mower running I could hear the thunder. High tailed it to the mulching area, dumped the baggers and just got it into the garage when all hell broke lose! 90 minutes of thunder and heavy rains and winds! Still raining lightly at 5:15 pm and needless to say, we're not leaving to much later Marissa said when she texted me! Just hope it's not when it's dark over there, as I can't see good in the dark! Parking the rig will be a real challenge then, as you have to back into you're slot! And it's on grass! That place floods with a light rain, can't wait to see what it is after this storm! Wish me luck, not for showing, but for parking! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Oh Donna Lee, he is even more beautiful than his ad picture! Glad that David and you are so happy with Junior! Congrats on the new light in your life! Well another hot and humid one today! But I got it all done that was on my to do list! Honey and I got in a 1.75 mile walk. Then went and picked up 2 dozen bagels for the teams breakfast on Thursday. No cooking for me this time, Fair food at nights! Salads for me! Maybe a sausage pepper and onions sandwich! Got home and got the boys out, it was hot with a slight, very slight breeze. Put Indy's fly sheet on him. They were out just about 2 hours when the sky got really dark! I was mowing, turned off the mower and heard the thunder. Quickly got them in, but it never rained on us. So like 20 minutes later it cooled off and I went back to mowing. Just have to mow one or two small places yet and weed whack. The move the trailer and pack it up! Hopefully they are wrong and we won't get the storms around 5 pm when we're supposed to leave to drop off Indy and pick up Paige! So it looks like I won't be on HC again till Monday night, well maybe Sunday as this show is close to home. PS Indy would like to thank everyone for his HOTM! He says Nicker Nicker to y'all! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

INTRODUCING JUNIOR...
Hello my friends, I would like you to meet Junior, he is a 7 yr old Golden Retriever. After the heart break of losing Charlie and then Zack, I really felt it was time to bring another dog into our home, David was not so sure, but hey...I know best. I had been shopping around to try and find the right mix, with the help of our friend Marion, yes, our HC friend, we looked at several, until last Saturday I happened upon the rehoming ad for Junior, it had literally just been posted, I was the first response, and fortunately, they liked the sound of us. The bad part, they live 2 1/2 hours from us, but with a bit of persuasion, we were on the road early Sunday morning and you guessed it, he came home with us. It was a long day for everyone and I'm sure very confusing for Junior, he had been in his home since he was 9 weeks old. They were very sorry to loose him, but their son is off to University and the Mom and Dad are moving to a condo, not enough room for Junior. I'm happy to report that he seem sto be fitting in very nicely. Have a great day, Donna Lee

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well thank you Mother Nature for the return of the instant sauna weather! Mid 80's with humidity! UGH! Honey and I got our walk in early, like 9:30 to 10:00 am. Then I went up to Wally World shopping for stuff for the horse show and the house. Got home and had the boys out by 12:30, but it was miserable already. They just about made two hours. Indy started running like crazy from the flies and dive bombers! Got him in and cooled him off, then got Bullseye who was even being aggravated by the flies! Then I finish mowing the lawn around the house, it too was so thick that it took 6 times to dump the rear double baggers! Tomorrow will be the two larger pastures, but they are mostly the tall weed like things, the boys have them eaten down pretty well! Well at least Indy's pasture. Maybe do a little packing too before it's so bad out and probably put the boys out even earlier too! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well the temps are rising again after a very cool morning to start the day! Like 51 degrees! Had the Show Prep Clinic and Laura rode Paige English and will make her debut in Hunt Set Equitation this show. Then did the Horsemanship, Laura first then me. Then Laura got on again and did some work over poles, possibly gonna do Trail with her. Then we moved to a break to un-tack and hose them off, after that it was showmanship time! I left when we were done, they all went to lunch and I had to much to do at home and wanted the boys out too! So I left and came home and got the boys out and did more weed whacking around the place. So I have Mon and Tues to mow the rest of the place and be done for a week! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we lucked out and the rains went well south of us today! So sunshine and cool, really cool wind, not a breeze but winds! So the 78 degrees it got to didn't feel like it at all! Was so nice out! Honey and I got in a 1.5 mile walk this morning. Then I weed whacked all behind the indoor, almost as fast as mowing it! Got ready and went over for my riding lesson. Good one, Paige was back to normal and so good and responsive! Got home from there and got the boys out to their pastures. And then got the mower out and did that other pasture! But it was wet and the spring was high, so I was sinking in and the tires were shooting water in circles! Not fun! Left some nice ruts! Oh well, had to be done and I didn't think it was that bad! It was! Tomorrow we have our Mock Horse Show at the farm at 9:30 am. Hopefully we'll be done by 2 pm and I can get the boys out and mow some more! Plus have to start packing again for the show! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well woke up to severe fog and 65 degrees. Then it got a little humid and that blew away by 1 pm, but the sun did come out and the temps hit 80 here on the farm. I dragged the outdoor arena today, but didn't pick any rock at all. Ran to town for a couple of errands. When I got home the humidity broke and the sun was out with a nice little breeze. So out went the boys! While they were out, I got the one pasture mowed, 6 times I had to empty the double rear bags! It was thick and heavy! Indy was at the gate after about 2.5 hours of pasture time whinnying to me to come in! Okay boy, here I come. No bugs, just wanted in! Got some rain moving in for tomorrow!

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well Mother Nature is not cooperating in letting me do any mowing on the farm! Another overcast day, with some sprinkles and not going above 76F degrees. Of course I didn't mind that it didn't get hot at all! Honey and I did get a 1.75 mile in this morning and then I got a shower and headed down to the doggie vets to pick up more Heart Worm for her. Then over to work with Paige. Had to work her in the outdoor arena, she got frisky once one a tractor trailers jake brake went off, it was a loud one. Glad I had her on the lunge line and not riding! Then we did showmanship in the light rain for like 15 minutes. Got home and got the boys out at least. They were out about 2.5 hours to mow their pastures for me! LOL! Those other two I need to mow are still like sponges! Oh well, see what tomorrow brings! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was nice and cool again this morning, about 60F to start off the day. Only got to about 74F and that was fine by me! Sun out all day! Did take some hay to the barn and fill the stall up, well half way like I always do. Then Honey and I did 2.25 miles this morning, only one walk today. Got home, had some lunch and then turned the boys out! They went to grazing immediately, no running and playing! Chow time! I couldn't mow, it's still like a sponge when you walk in the two pastures that I need to mow first. Indy's and Bullseye's was a little wet, but not as bad as the lower two! So we'll see if I can get over to Paige earlier tomorrow and then mow later in the day after it dries out more hopefully. Cause guess what's coming on Friday! Yep more rain! Oh well! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

But Honey and I did get one walk in around noontime! Did 1.5 miles at least! Then it was lunge Indy time. The a grooming. Then Bullseye got a spa day today! He's so cute! Gave then fresh water and hay for lunch. About 4 pm was going to check them and take Honey on another walk, but it just started raining again! So back to the house and the couch!

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well rain and more rain this morning. Over an inch in the rain gauge when I emptied it at noontime. Did get Honey out for a walk around 11 am, street was dry. We got in almost 2 miles. Knew I couldn't work outside and get done what needed, so we had a nice long walk in 62F degree temps! It was nice. Indy got a full spa day for sure today. And I picked up the corners of his mats and cleaned out the pressed bedding that got under them was causing them to roll on the ends. Then decided to get another walk in with Honey, this time we did 1.5 miles, I was kinda dragging a little after wrestling with those heavy mats! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well no sun shine, but tons of humidity! Very little breeze too! But Honey and I did get our walk in this morning. Did 1.75 miles. Then just as I was turning out the boys, got a phone call to meet this young lady down the road at the old farm and help her rescue her own horse out of there! What a hell hole that place has become! He wouldn't load. There 90 minutes trying. Called Marissa and she said walk the horse down to my farm and she was sending over the troops to help. Jill and Laura who share Paige came and brought Dominica with them. Laura had him on in about 10 minutes. Told her the walk down made him tired and I did the prep work! We all laughed. When the left I brought the boys in and then mowed out behind the indoor and by the manure pile. But it was wet yet from last nights rain. So I didn't even try to mow those two pastures. Probably have to wait till Wed now, rains tonight and all day tomorrow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was hot and humid all day. But not as hot as it has been, but still very humid! Did get an early morning 1.5 mile walk in with Honey. Then mowed the lawn around the house. Headed over to ride Paige. Lesson inside, could have ridden outside, but the bugs Heather said were bad. So I opted for the indoor. And of course either having a few days off from the heat, or just being a marish day, she gave me some grief! Didn't want to work! Like nope, we're doing it my way, no Paige you're doing it the correct way. So 25 minutes of lot's of thumping with my spurs to keep her moving correct! Hopefully she won't be like that for Laura tomorrow! And it's supposed to be a little cooler and less humidity then too! So after our ride, she got hosed off, I could have used it too! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. So it started out cooler and with a nice breeze. Took Honey on a two mile walk it was so nice! Got home and weed whacked all along the fence lines in the two medium pastures and the did the entire long front of the indoor. Was going to mow but that never happened! Did get the boys out for almost 3 hours. But by 2:30pm the breeze blew itself away and the humidity and flies came out! Dive bombers too! Indy's like hey mom, it's time for the barn and fans! Okay Indy here I come to save the day! LOL! Had to go to town on a couple of errands and it was 93 degrees down there and 89 up here when I climbed the mountain! Tomorrow's supposed to be less humidity and cooler temps! Sure hope so, I want to ride Paige! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hui Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. You just know when you open the door to let the dog out at 7 am and you get hit with hot humid weather, you're in trouble! I did get Honey for a walk about 10 am, but we only went down the road in the shady areas! Got home and about 30 minutes later it hit me! Must have to just a little to hot and humid for me. Had the shakes and felt like I wanted to vomit! Force myself to drink a sports drink with electrolytes in it and it helped! Texted Marissa and she said riding lessons canceled, but come and do a little showmanship with Paige and we'll go over the show patters for the beginning of Aug. We did for about 15 minutes and I was soak n wet! Paige was dry and not panting like me! LOL! Then 5 of us went across the street to the Homestead Restaurant and enjoyed a nice luncheon! Felt good to sit in A/C and laugh about things! It was 92F when I left her farm with a humidity still at 100%, so the boys did not get out at all today! And don't ya know, about 6:30 here comes another major T-storm with super heavy rains! One inch in the gauge in a matter of 45 minutes! So sick of this rain, I'm sending it to you Buffy! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. YAY Bachelor #4 is a winner! I'm so happy for you! Can't wait till you get more time with him and the feel of him better. Plus your saddle. He's handsome! Well I've about had it with the humidity, don't mind the heat, but that wet sock feeling sucks! It calmed down around noontime, so out went the boys for 2 and half hours. Then it was coming back and the nice cool breeze left us. They were getting warm and sweaty and the flies were coming alive again, so in they came! Honey and I did our walk at 10:30 am again today. I think this will be our new walking time for the hot days. I did get some weed whacking done in the shade of the indoor along the long wall. Then tonight behind the indoor in the shade of it, I pushed back another 15 feet of those vine like weeds! Marissa did cancel lessons this afternoon due to the heat and humidity, we'll see what tomorrow brings for my lesson at 2 pm. Maybe she'll call and I can go over earlier. That'd be great! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Bachelor #4
So, Bachelor #4 is home from summer pasture, I met him and rode him last night. See pic below, first, I can't believe I got on him without my helmet, I have never done that. I'm also in Kori's Western tack, so feeling a bit like a fish out of water, but, he is lovely, he is a Standardbred, YEAH, he is well behaved, he is handsome and he is mine to ride if I choose, and I choose...so I think I have found my new best friend and I can finally shake off this funk I have been in. I plan to take my saddle over this weekend and then I can make a final decision, have a great day, ttyl.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well the heat and humidity stunk already at 7 am! About 10 am I took Honey for her walk, we did 1.75 miles. Mostly in the shade thank goodness! Got home and I was soaked from the humidity. Decided the hair had to go! Go my super short cut! Got home and there was no way the boys could go out! Put two more fans on in the barn, total of 6 going and 2 of them are the big commercial ones! Hayed them and fresh water. Came up to the house to cool off. Then went down and worked on putting in the two extra stallion bars by Bullseye so he stops pulling the bungee cords that hold his fan in place! Once again, soak n wet! Come up and hear the fire sirens going off. Here come all kinds of firetrucks and emergency vehicles past the farm. It was about 3 miles from me, don't know if it was the old farm house down there or next to it! Just praying that no humans or animals were lost! Then we got hit with a really bad T-Storm that shook the house and down poured like crazy! Looks like tomorrow will be a repeat performance of today's weather! This is really getting to me! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
