Brandi those are some wonderful names. I just don't know which one I like best.   Thank you for coming up with them. My old tried brain cells just couldn't come up with any thing.   

How nice of you to say, Green Eyes.

I worked on them off and on throughout the day and night. I am not really good at that kind of thing, but I did my best. Not sure which I like the best either.

Didn't get the house yet, but we are still working on it. I really love the property, but the terms and price have to be just right. We are also in no hurry to move, so time is on our side. Wish us luck!

Hope everyone is having a grand old New Year's Eve. We are so pooped from negotiations last night and today, that we can barely keep our eyes open. And we are both night owls! LOL

Update on Connie:
first the good news -- she didn't have a stroke;
not so good news -- somehow she shattered her ankle and her shin bones, plus other bones.  Claims she didn't fall.  I am obviously home now -- letting the boys be in charge.  Very hard for me to do, but if I don't, can't complain later they aren't doing enough.
Was suppose to head out today for some R & R -- still going -- sshhh -- it's only 45 miles away, but feels like a new place.  So if they really need me, I am close.
Hope everyone has a good New Year.  I am looking forward to it!
Blessings.
 


Continuing prayers for Connie and all her loved ones.  Take care also Sister.

Sister
You and Connie will be in my prayers. I certainly can empathize with you hoping 2014 would be better than 2013.

Although I made myself clear about not wanting anything for Christmas I still got stuff. One is a complete exterior video surveillance system to keep an eye on the donkeys 24/7 without having to physically go to the barn. The video cameras are in color but also night vision. It comes with a hand held monitor, can be viewed on my laptop, smartphone and TV. It can be activated by motion or pre-timed. 2 cameras inside the barn, 2 mounted on the exterior of the barn so the pasture can be monitored and 2 for viewing the dogs in the yard. I feel like James Bond. This is the part that is freaking me out. As you know I don't have a TV but they bought me a 32" flat screen to mount on the office wall as a monitor for the system. Just imagine Hobbs in glorious color live on your office wall....just saying. Although I will be able to confuse them because I will be able to talk to them from the house but they can also talk to me. Will be interesting when it is installed next week.

Hoping everyone had a happy and safe New Years.

Can you tape Hobbs reaction when you talk to him long distance. It would be amazing.

What a wonderful and thoughtful gift, 4 Donks!

Does this mean you can upload some footage so we can see the dogs and donks in action? That would be so cool.

Thank you about the thread names comment. I am not sure I will vote, since I came up with all the choices (so far).

Still thinking about it.

Happy New Years Monkeys.... I understand the name change. I haven't been myself lately. Kind of a bit of depression I guess. I pray that you all have a wonderful New Year in 2014. Really stressed out about my job with this Obamacare coming and we are losing business.

My new year resolution is to log into monkeys every day, try not to be depressed, and take every day as it comes instead on dwelling on what may happen in the future.

God bless you all and if you don't mind, pray for my friend. She was in a wreck in early November, she lost her leg, her spleen and liver were basically exploded. She is still in hospital due to infection in her abdomen. Plus she doesn't have insurance, the hospital has given her a years worth of coverage because she is basically indigent now.

I miss and love you all.  an angelic monkey

Glad to see you JSM. Try not to worry too much - you have CC to take care of you if the job goes away. Smile

Sorry you are stressed JSM.  I bet everything will be good with your job.  If something does happen to it then CC will just have to support you in the way of which you have been accustomed to   

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend.  I'll keep her in my prayers.  an angelic monkey

Hey TBM she only had collision, so no she didn't have any insurance. She is at a county hospital, but after she had the wreck her parents moved her address to Johnson Co which isn't in the JPS network. She lived in Tarrant Co forever, paid taxes, but once you move out of network, you are basically screwed.

Too bad JSM no longer stops by here.  May finally be time to shut down this thread and move to Musings?  I may do that in 2014.   

What's wrong with having both threads? Just wondering. I feel so comfortable here!

(I have bad memories of the other thread. When I was new-ish here, I tried chatting in that thread and there were some people who were very mean to me there, teasing me and not in a fun way. I never mentioned it to anyone, but I did stop posting there. Never felt welcome there.at.all.)

Not complaining about the past. Just saying why I personally would like to see this thread stay alive.


Coming here is like putting on a comfortable old robe. You guys have really helped me through some tough times with your caring and sense of humor and Brandi's knockout graphics. Perhaps at Klaas' suggestion we start another thread...have a suggestion box for a new name. 

I agree 4Donks maybe we can come up with a new name.  I post in Musings and here. Some times I post the same thing other times I don't. I wish the Thread could stay open. All the Monkeys have become part of my family. It will be like losing a loved one. Hope someone can think of a new name. 

I agree with many others that have posted here. I love this small group. I have been over to musings a couple of times but never felt as connected as I do her. I would hate to  see our small group broken up - perhaps another name would be good.

Agree with all the above. I enjoy this thread. Maybe JSM doesn't post here anymore but the rest of us still do.
