And the Rest of the Day

Lawton was not much fun. Sometimes dealing with the Toyota folks is okay, but not this time. Several times I tried to contact Toby at his office and on his cell phone to no avail. Now I know he is at work and he is busy, but it frustrates me to no end to need to get in touch and not be able to. We managed to meet up at lunch and things got better, but then I went to Wal-Mart for a major shopping day. I finally got home about 3 pm and the horses were out. With much patience, I caught one of the wild mares and led the herd back to the fenced in area. I checked the fence which seemed to be fine, but by the time I got back to the house, they were out again. And my rat terrier found some fresh horse manure to roll in. Lovely. If it were not 90 degrees outside, this might all be better, but it is pretty frustrating and hot. Why do I have horses?

I meant to tell you that the movie that Jan brought last night was a Swiss speaking movie called "Vitus" about a boy genius. We had to read subtitles. It was a good movie. I think Jesse was having a hard time reading and watching the movie at the same time. Sometimes you miss the facial expressions and such while you are reading. She seemed to be confused about what was going on and kept asking questions. When it was all over, she said, "How very...European." I think she likes to give Jan a hard time. I don't know where she gets that.

Jesse made it to work fine this morning on her motorcycle. I made her call me to "report in" when she got to work. I know what you are thinking, But, Lou, she is 25 years old." Hey, I almost made Jan call me when he road his motorcycle home last night.

I ask the same question about horses. I spent this afternoon putting out plants, so our horses are due to get out also. " Look fresh purple petunias our favorite."

You go girl about that calling home thing, I need to be able to tell my girls " Jesse is 25 and still calls home". Motorcycles are scary, Chara would have one if her Dad would let her.

SN1 will be 42 this year and I still ask him to call when he's traveling (same for SN2, as well). Some stuff never changes...
