Got to wear smart clothes and heels today, instead of mud covered riding breeches and rubber boots. I went to Crewe (about 35 miles away) to visit some cousins on my father's side who I haven't seen for over 20 years. It was really great catching up and we had a delicious lunch and a long chat.

Came back, climbed into the muddy breeches and boots and went to sort out the Wonder Horse who was in a vile temper and played up all the way back from the field. Most unlike him. He hasn't been out in the field much over the winter and now that he's going out every day I think he's trying to find his position in the "herd" again and is finding it a bit difficult. However, as I told him, it's not my fault so don't take it out on me!

Well, tonight he caught one in the act. He was going into the men's room in the supermarket when he heard a little girl crying and screaming in the ladies room. Instinct told him something was wrong. He opened the door and saw a man molesting a little six year old. The man stood up real fast and my son broke his knuckles hitting him real hard. The man went down. He was on the floor and my son tried to choke him to death. "All I could see Ma was red. I wanted to rip out his Adam's Apple. I was willing to go to prison."
Well, the police notified my son today that with the information he gave them, the creep is now in custody and being held on $1M cash bail. And that means exactly what it says. Do you have $1M just laying around?

The creep now has pressed assault charges against Pirate. And now the police have pressed charges against the creep with attempt to intimate a witness. They will be going before a grand jury.

I just love the way the police handled that one. "Pirate, do you think you could now testify with this hanging over your head?" Of course my son knew the right answer to give. "No, I don't want to have a record hanging over me for the rest of my life." Bam! Another charge added.

This creep is screwed! He won't be molesting any little girls in the future. In fact, there is a good chance he is going to become someone's 'little girl'.

Poor Pirate. One of the reasons he was able to identify the creep is that he had driven him several times to his job. So he knew where he worked. And he has a long rap sheet.

Why couldn't this have happened next week after my new mattress was delivered?

Because you are playing that game, wait till that is over before sleeping on your new mattress.

Maybe an earworm will take your mind off of your troubles!

Hope you get well quickly!

Pretty much what my digestive system has sounded like for the past few days...

I got out of the house for the first time since 15 February. Stirling and I walked to the convenience store. It's 0.3 km away. I wore flipflops, since my toe still complains about shoes. Yup, I got tired, but not exhausted. Next outing is tomorrow. I'm going for physiotherapy for my shoulder.

taxy, that must have been a breath of fresh air. Hope it stays warm enough so you can flop your flippers some more.

So much for Hershey's syrup on ice cream tonight... I can recommend bagels as an effective, yet non-medicinal, option to Imodium. You might need to eat 3 or 4 in a day, but they work! Hope you're over this quickly. And yes, like others have said, before the new mattress arrives.

At least for now. She will have to go for MRIs for the rest of her life. Right now it is every three months. Next year it will be every six months, then every nine months for the rest of her life. I think my favorite word for the rest of my life will be "remission."
Yes, ma'am, and remember I always pray for you and yours. I lost my first hubby to a disease called depression. I'm so grateful to God for my hubby's life. He's a fighter and I think his body picked up on that and rolled on to wellness.

God bless you and your precious daughter, Addie. Remission and clean are both very relieving words.
