The three oldest are in their mid twenties now. We get a blow up every now and again. But with their work and school schedules, they generally don 't see each other. When they were younger... Dear Lord, that nonsense never stopped.

Thanks goodness for female winemakers, and dog lovers!

My Hubby has been insisting that we get motorcycles, and I'm starting to be brainwashed by his opinions

My "puppy" came to us as a senior (unbeknownst to us...). We love her as one of our own though! Her muzzle is getting grey and she sleeps 20 hours per day, but she is the sweetest thing around!

Haha! Do it!!! Just be careful though, 100% defensive driving/riding. Me and wifey back in the day (we now qualify for "antique" license plates for our bikes!)

the_rayway, you just need to go for it! I was 38 when I took the riding classes. Best thing I have ever done!
Is there a "show your pets thread"? If not maybe we should start one??
Here are a few of my babies, Jack the chihuahua, Chief the golden retriever, and Duke the white german Shepard. We also have 2 hamsters, 2 rats, an african grey parrot, just lost our 220 gallon salt water tank due to a leak. And currently setting up a 125 gallon freshwater stingray tank, whew!

Hi Wade can u help me out. Made a wine kit to fast this morning and added 2.5L more water then I needed to. SG is 1.084. So instead of the 23L mark I went to 25.5. Thanks John
