    Tools purchased

    Can be used in woodworking. Actually will be used in hauling firewood. From my firewood pile I find all kinds of nice spalted pen blanks. Someday when I learn to turn bowls, I'll be pulling those types of blanks out of the pile also. So, I guess this set of tools are woodworking related. Now this is not a picture of them, themselves, it is a representative photo.

    Norwegian Fjords.

    Hope to pick them up Saturday morning in Bourbonnais, IL.

    This is a photo of them this spring.

    My knowledge of horses is wide spread. I know they eat at one end and spread it wide from the other.

    Before he died, Myrna's brother had some horses. I would go with him on buying trips. We might go out in a field of 30-40 horses. The owner and Ralph would be there doing horse talk.

    HOWEVER, all of the horses would crowd around me, who has ridden a horse once. They would crowd each other trying to get close to me, who is skitterish about horses and wished they would go crowd Ralph. Some horses would, in a very gentlemanly way, get my sweater or shirt between their teeth and gently pull me towards them. The horses would be packed in so tightly that there was no place to go. Horses would be stretching up over other horses trying to get closer. Every horse in the field would be there.

    This happened several times in Colorado and California. It was definitely not a one time event.

    Enjoy,

    Jim, you're gonna have to stop wearing that carrot-scented cologne.

    We'll check that situation out on the 22nd. They haven't been working hard at all, but if they work with Ginger, the three will be amazing.

    Jim, some guys buy a car because it has a "chick magnet" in it, they attract chickens and such. I guess you have "horse sense" does the same thing, but without the car.
