Quote for the week

Put on your stretchy pants and call it a day
~Captian Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie of Discoveries Deadliest Catch


After stuffing ourselves on Thanksgiving Shandi and I took this advice to heart. Although we did without the stretchy pants because we would just look plain silly. The DOR says they don't make stretchy pants big enough to cover my big spotted butt. She better be careful what she says, after all she ate plenty herself over the past two days.
The point of the quote for this week is sometimes you just have to take a moment to relax. We horses make sure to relax every day. Freedom has relaxing down to an art. On Thursday he was flat out in the pasture snoring to beat the band. He says that is part of practicing Freedom Zen. The DOR has learned to take a moment at her work where she closes her eyes, breathes deeply, and clears her mind...she is a lot less stressed afterward.
So may I suggest that everyone take a few moments each day just to relax. If you have time put on your stretchy pants and call it a day. Relaxing will help you live longer, look at how old Freedom is.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!

That's good advice, I don't care who you are.

Captain Phil is a favorite around here. Too bad the stubborn SOB can't take his own advice. I kept thinking he was going to just keel over at the wheel last season.

Oh, I LOVE that picture!!! I think you should send it to a horse magazine.
As to stretchy pants, love them, can't live without them but today when I put on my jeans, the zipper popped open but the holiday dinner was worth it.

In stretchy pants now. But we call them yoga pants so we sound more hip.
