Faina, It's not pain. They have become so deformed it's hard to type and I cut myself so much that my husband is cutting up the vegetables for me.
It's depressing but no pain, thanks everyone for the suppoet. And top that with dyslexia, makes me queen of the typos.
But This is a cheery thread so let's go forth and all have a great week-end.

This is my first reply in these threads:

Rave: I received my Red Sox tickets today for a game in late August. The seats: Front row, behind home plate, seats 1,2. Being legally blind has its benefits!

Rave: My fiance is coming up for a break from her graduate work this weekend.

Rave: I got a 10 percent raise out of nowhere Wednesday!

Rant: It's 99 today, with a 90 percent humidity. But, I'll live!

Diana, congrats on your horsie! When my great-niece is riding in a show in Raleigh, I go to them. (She is in the Army, not competing now! Giving lessons in Dressage in Alaska about 8 times a week.) Anyhoo, happy for you and her!

jor, darlin, I was up at 1 am, and considered waiting for you to do it, but could not resist being First !
I promise to wait for you next time

Diana, congratulations! How is the foal?

That Nigerian letter shows up all the time on Hotmail ~

Mimi, I am glad you are not in pain, but wish you could find some relief from the stiffness.
Your Typos are still understandable, make me smile and you are always Kind..so some those with perfect spelling and typing can learn something from you.
Happy Weekend Everybody

Just a quick note to thank you all for sharing in my good cheer. It's not always this much fun in my home.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Scarlett, Aha! So it must be a hotmail thing. Because no matter how many times I block the sender it just comes back in mutated form. Fortunately (fingers crossed) I haven't really received that much spam there, set up just for these boards

Have a great weekend

I have hotmail, in Options I set it to Exclusive filter - all I need to do is Empty the spam box. No spam gets into my mailbox.

It's Friday...It's 5:00. Say no more!

I used to go to horse shows until they kept sitting in front of me and I couldn't see the screen...especially when they wore a hat.
But when they put on a feed bag full of popcorn, I couldn't hear even hear the show.

GIDDYUP!
I sat behind a trotter once....When I have the trots I stay home.

A horse walked into a bar and went "I said HAY bartender".

Horse ordered a martini....charge came to $12!!!! Bartender said "We don't get many horses here".
"At those prices you won't get anymore"!

You know why the horse couldn't get treated after a car accident?
He didn't have horsepitalzation.

Say Goodnight, Gracie...

Rant/rave: 8-day vacation to Seattle and Vancouver is over :{, but we made it home safely and pretty much everything is fine at home :}.

Rant/rave: The first thing I had to do after we got home was take my 16 1/2-yr. old kitty to the vet (hurt ear), but she is O.K.

Rant: 4 more days and it's back to work; also 4 more days 'til I can get our trip pictures developed. (Wednesday is free double-print day.)

Rave: I have another week vacation in 18 days.

Rant: No trip planned for that one. Planning to stay home and buy teenage son his first car, instead. Wish me luck!

Oh, yeah, here's my big **RANT** for the week:

The whole time we were on vacation, my cell phone said I was ROAMING -- and I'm supposed to have the Nationwide Plan! I don't know what happened, but I'm certainly going to find out!

Raves: To the fire crews at Timberline, Carson City who saved my son and daughter-in-law's home. Fire came within 6-8 feet.

Sadness and sympathy to those whose homes were lost and suffered damage.

Blame this on Kal

A blonde tries to go horseback riding even though she has had no lessons or prior experience.

She mounts the horse unassisted and the horse immediately springs into action.

It gallops along at a steady pace, but the blonde begins to lose her grip and starts to slide in the saddle.

In terror, she grabs for the mane but can't seem to get a firm grip.

She tries to throw her arms around the horses neck, but she slides down the side of the horse anyway.

The horse gallops along, seemingly impervious to it's slipping rider.

Unfortunately, the Blondes foot has become entangled in the stirrup.

She is now at the mercy of the hooves as her head is struck against the ground over and over again.

As her head is battered against the ground she is moments away from losing consciousness when, to her great fortune, The shopping centre Manager sees her and unplugs the horse.

Diana - also a blonde - says this (Scarlett's joke) is a staple that has been e-mailed to every horse owner I know.

The only variation (I found this version particularly suspenseful) is that the last line is, "then the Wal Mart manager unplugged the horse."

Rant: came home from a 2-week-plus holiday in British Columbia last night - we had been getting cheery voice mail messages from our so-called "professional" (i.e. paid) petsitter the whole time saying everything was great. Walked in the house to discover our allergic cat scratching himself to bits, the house in a mess, the computer (which she supposedly wasn't going to use) left on, and various other annoyances. Poor kitty scratched all night and I didn't sleep a wink. Well, maybe a wink. But not much more. I had a few things to say to the agency this morning!
Rave: cat went to the vet first thing and is feeling much better now. We'll sleep fine tonight.
Rant: My sweetie is still in BC for another week.
Rave: I get to go to a chickflick with my pals this week while he's still away!
I missed you all. Computer access was sporadic while I was away although I did check in once or twice.
