New Year's Eve Blog Party Invitation

The New Year's Blog Party is slowly rolling in.
We are planning quite a bash.
We would like to have you join us.
So it will be a smash!

We really want to see you and your photos.(photo not neccessary)
We hope that you can make it.
So help us make our blog party fun,
Or we might have to fake it!
(wait a moment this is the blogs, all of this world is unreal.)

Just bring your awesome self (or "selves" or trolls...well, some of them we do not want and will delete)
And what you want to smoke or drink.
And we will provide the other stuff,
Including the hats, crowns, DJs, designated drivers (please be careful about blogging while drinking) and the kitchen sink!

When you show us with your blog, that you are here,
We will smile and shout "Whoopee!"
So sit right down at your computer and join us as we have some fun
With your R.S.V.P!

Hey Star,

Loved the post on identifying the female equestrian. One of my favorite sayings is "Ain't good grass unless it's pasture grass."

Yes, Annie. I had a wonderful Christmas. As I said, the weather has been perfect. We will be in the 60s all this week as well....
I have also been attending too many parties! My clients love to throw parties this time of the year. Now I need to lose the 10 pounds I have put on...Jeepers. New Years is only a few days away. One more party...

I usually do not go to so many parties but thought that this year I should try and see how others celebrate the holidays.

Anyone else going to parties other than this one?

Hi, Annie. The weather has been very nice here. In the 60s and so I a have been very busy. How are you doing?
Hey Star,

Happy New Year!  Perfect day here, too.  Did manage to get in a couple of rides, but between the wind and the fact that nobody had been ridden in several days - I had quite a thrilling afternoon.    Hope you've been able to enjoy Christmas!

Hi, Trailgaiter.

Here is another...
.
Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men do not want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that are not as good, but easy. The apples at the top of the tre think that something is wrong with them, when in reality, they are amazing. The best men learn(or know) how to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

Now men....men are like fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it is up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn inot something acceptable to have dinner with, or take out in public.

And now, another version...

Woman may be like apples in that they come in all varieties and grow through many stages. Sometimes at their peak and ready for picking, sometimes just hanging around in the top of the tree enjoying and soaking up the sun in the process of ripening, sometimes clinging tenaciously to the highest of branches for fear she might fall to the ground.

The apples on the ground may be at their peak too, ripe, juicy,sweet, unscathed and available but not easy, or perhaps bruised but hardy and in need of gentle handling much like the one at the top hanging on tightly.

The best men know this, and appreciate most all the variety of apples no matter if they are on top of the tree or on the ground because they are all worthy of a good mans efforts. And eventually all the apples on the top of the tree will fall at some point to join the apples laying on the ground.

Yes the best men know this and don't need to be stomped into fine wine. He just is....

Quoting author:

A view pointers for the male equestrian single:

Identification of the Female Equestrian...

EASY TO LOCATE. She's either off on the horse or out in the barn.

UPHOLDS THE DOUBLE STANDARD.
Smooches with the most bewhiskered beast, but recoils when you need a shave.

OWNS ONE VACUUM CLEANER and operates it exclusively in the barn.

A SOCIAL BUTTERFLY, providing the party is given by another horsey wife. Falls asleep in her soup at all other functions.

ECONOMY MINDED. Won't waste your money on permanents, facials, or manicures.

A CULINARY PERFECTIONIST. Checks every section of hay for mold but doesn't blink when she petrifies your dinner in the microwave.

OCCASIONALLY AMOROUS, but never leaves lipstick on your collar, at worst, slight trace of chap stick.

EASY TO OUTFIT. No need for embarrassing visits to uncomfortable little boutiques. You can find all she wears at your local tack store.

FEATURES A SELECTIVE SENSE OF SMELL. Bitterly complains about your sticky-sweet cigar smoke while remaining totally oblivious to the almost visible aroma of her barn boots drying next to the heater.

UNMISTAKABLE IN A BATHING SUIT. She's the one whose tan starts at the nose, ends at the neck, and picks up again at the wrists.

HAS YOUR LEISURE AT HEART. Eliminates grass cutting by turning every square inch of lawn into pasture which, in turn, converts itself into mud.

KEEPS AN EAGLE EYE ON THE BUDGET. Easily justifies spending six hundred dollars, but croaks when you blow ten on a tie.

AN ENGAGING CONVERSATIONALIST. Can rattle on endlessly about training.

SOCIALLY AWARE. Knows that formal occasions call for clean boots.

A MOVING FORCE IN THE FAMILY. House by house, she'll get you to move closer to horse country (and farther away from your job.

EASY TO PLEASE. A new wheelbarrow, custom boots, or even a folding hoof pick will win her heart forever.

SENTIMENTAL FOOL. Displays a minimum of six 8x10 color photos of the horse in the house and carries a crumpled snapshot of you (taken before you were married) somewhere in the bottom of her purse.

SHOWS HER AFFECTION IN UNUSUAL WAYS. If she pats you on the neck and says "you're a good boy," believe it or not, she loves you!
Hey Star!

Loved both posts.¿ I definately see myself in the second one.

For the female equestrian singles: Husbands Vs. Horses

Pros About Husbands:

Husbands are less expensive to shoe.

Husbands don't try to scratch their heads on your back.

They're better able to understand puns.

If they're playing hard to catch you *may* be able to run them down on foot.

They know their name.

They pay their own bills.

They apologize when they step on your toes.

They seldom refuse to get in the vehicle.

They don't panic, yelling and running all through the house when you leave them alone. (unless you left the kids too)

Pros about Horses:
If they don't work out you can sell them.

They don't come with in-laws.

You don't have to worry about your children looking like them.

You never have to iron their saddle pads.

It's possible to keep them from "jumping the fence".

You can force them to stay in good physical condition...with a whip if necessary.

They don't want their turn at the computer.

They turn white with age, but not bald.

They learn to accept restraint.

They don't care what you look like, as long as you have a carrot.

Merry Christmas Everyone.

It has been a pleasure getting to know each of you. I look forward to more good times with you...

May all our dreams of happiness, success, and love come true.

And may Santa bring you what ever you want. Unless you have been bad this past year, than he will bring you what you deserve. But, at least you know that you still have friends here.

And how come I do not get all those pretty colors. OOOPPS. Maybe I have not been a good girl this year.

You find the reindeer to fly me out, and I'm on my way - I understand they are on strike, so Fed Ex might just have to do.
