Adventure before dementia

One Way To Get Yourself A New Car ...

I have just been e-mailed this story ... I could do with a new car, why does nothing like this ever happen to me??

One day, Jimmy Joe was walking down Main Street when he saw his buddy Bubba driving a brand new pickup. Bubba pulled up to him with a wide grin.

'Bubba, where'd you get that truck?!?'

 'Bobby Sue gave it to me' Bubba replied.

 'She gave it to you? I knew she was kinda sweet on ya,but a new truck?'

 'Well, Jimmy Joe, let me tell you what happened.  We were driving out on County Road6, in the middle of nowhere. Bobby Sue pulled off the road, put the truck in 4-wheel drive, and headed into the woods.  She parked the truck, got out, threw off all her clothes and said, 'Bubba, take whatever you want'.
So I took the truck!'

 'Bubba, you're a smart man!. Them clothes woulda never fit you!'

Are People That Stupid?

 Another e-mail I have received today ... This one contains a few of those instructions that you can't actually appear on packaging ...

In Honour of Stupid People . . .

In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods. 

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) --
'Do not turn upside down.'
(well...duh, a bit late, huh!)

Heaven On Earth (Story Re-Posted, Now Beta'd)

 This is just my story that I wrote last week being re-posted.

It is written in a response to a challenge that lilachigh   set me, when she gave me the opening line:-
Buffy stared in horror. Spike had driven her out of town to the beach just as the moon was rising.
"Moonlight horse-riding, pet! You'll love it!"
She wanted it set in Season 6.

It has now been Beta'd by dragonflylady77   
I would also like to give very special thanks to slaymesoftlyfor all her additional help.

Season 6, just before OMWF
2,360 words
Rating - PG
Warnings - None

DJ - plaited!

Lazy Day - Just Walk And A Gossip (Of Course!)

Wow, considering it is June, it was very windy this morning. Gave DJ the perfect excuse to glare at everything on his walk back to the yard.

He was again good while I was grooming him and I knew we weren't going far, I didn't have to plait him so that was great.

Toni and her youngest daughter had been out on a local fun-ride over the weekend, so today, Toni rode Junior and led Smudge. We went up to the farm and back here for those who missed the pictures.

 It was a lovely ride out - we stopped and said hello to Ros and Cherry, although they weren't riding today as they have the vet coming to check Cherry as part of her sale deal.  Ros's daughter was there - don't see her too often as she is in the army - She has actually just returned from her second tour of duty in Iraq.

So, a lazy day ... but good to get to see everyone and enjoy the countryside.

When we got back I had Toni check DJ's saddle and it looks as if I need to use a different one for him in the summer ... he puts on weight, and therefore changes shape.  DJ has some older saddles, so she is going to look those out to see if any of them fit - cheeper than a new one!
