Okay so I have been less than gregarious as of late but I thought I would tell you how well my horses have been doing and relate an anecdote

Devon Cream has won over 30 grand this summer and for once I am cashing checks instead of writing them.

Homerun has just won his first race

as for the anecdote...

Me and my mom were in Arizon at a JC Penny's shopping for clothes for my niece (for the record I was just the chauffeur)when a helpful lady cam up and asked me if I needed any help? I pointed at my mother and said "ask her I am just here for security".

Her head whipped around looked at my mother and squeaked out " you must be either really rich or really famous to need that much security"

I laughed

The Devon Cream Update

Well my little 3 year old filly is earning her keep, finishing second in the Alberta Princess stakes race she has earned $ 18,000.00 in the last 3 weeks. And she has many more stakes races in the future.

I am so very tired of work, every one and every thing seems to be working against me and I am just tired of it all.

I need to escape my prison but I am not happy about how I am going about it.

And I am tired of whining to you people so smile a while and give your face a rest

Five things that make me happy

A cold northern lake at dawn, the water is flat as glass and nothing but the birds are moving. I push out from shore in a boat not even starting the motor and I quietly fish. for a brief period of time its like having the whole world to yourself

Chicks & Beer: Chicks when they aren't driving me crazy.Beer when I don't over indulge

My niece and my nephew because I am just their old uncle Sean

Driving when the cops aren't around and you can zip around corners and speed over hills.

A warm fall day with a brilliant sunset on the prairies where the sky is truly open and you can see for miles and miles

Sorry I am not doing the whole cut and paste thing Chris, if you can be lazy so can I

Okay let me preface this, this is not a cry for help or an indication of intent

I am 41 soon enough to be 42 and I have worked for the same place for 25 years, I have accomplished everything I can. I have no wife or kids. I have nothing left to do with my life and plenty of time to do it.

Does any one else contemplate just ending it all not out of despair or fear of failure but out of boredom? I am having a hard time finding motivation to do anything because it will just be a repeat of something I have done before.

I need a major change in my life but I am stuck here looking after my mother, father, sister and brother. Keeping the business going despite them. So they can eat and vacation and pay their mortgages.

I think if I could I would go be a long distance trucker and just spend some time spinning miles onto a truck, no responsibilities except making sure the load got where it was going in the time allotted.

Funny thing is if I had a choice I would jump off a very high building or mountain because I think the few seconds of absolute free fall would be the most exhilarating experience of my life. I guess its a good thing I live on the flat flat prairies where the tallest building is 7 stories high

Ennui is tha fancy term for what I have I think but boredom covers it

Okay so it has been noted by my one true follower that I haven't been around much lately. Well I have been around I just haven't had anything to say, so this post is probably going every where and no where.

First off the horses are not running yet though sometime early this year they should be.

Secondly like my Canadian goose brethren I have migrated south for the winter, or at least a vacation. I am in the southern US making a lot of noise and crapping all over the golf courses just like my Canadian goose brethren.

Unfortunately I am not in Florida or I might be tempted to look Chris up and see if she really is as brassy in person as claims to be on her blog. Footnote: That is a joke never ever meet casual acquaintances from the internet, only meet online friends in a public and well populated location, never give out too much information. These stupid electronic boxes are full of freaks, I estimate that 1 out of 2 people are freaks and since its not me that only leaves you.

Just after I arrived in the desert south west they had 2.5 inches of rain, this apparently constitutes a major storm and possibly a sign of the end times. I have converted to Zoroastrianism and await our demonic over lords.

Okay that should be enough for a wee while, as ever if you have a question ask it. If you have a smoke, smoke it, just do it outside I don't need your second hand smoke.

So hello my sweet young Friend, okay the photo is apropos of nothing but I am sure you don't really care

Devon Cream finished a very close second in her last race of the year in fact I am sure the winning horse is still trying to get her snot out of his ears. The two of them got together and sent a post card to third place something about "wish you were here....already" Horses can be so catty.

Prairie Ruff n Tuff is still sick but he is showing some good promise and we will see but again not till the new year.

I am down to a skeleton crew and I am getting tired of the jump your bones jokes

Not a lot else to say

As always questions will be answered or ignored depending on how I feel

Laters haters
