because really nothing interesting has been happening. I absolutely hate those people who get on facebook and say crap like, “I had eggs for breakfast! Then my kids went to school!” Great. Who cares. One usually eats breakfast, and kids are supposed to go to school. And? I suppose I could say, “I fed and cleaned stalls!” But would you be in the least bit interested? I didn’t think so. Winter is slow. We don’t do much except wait for spring. I blanket. I feed. I wait for volunteers to resurface. I deal with winter stuff such as frozen pipes, no heat, hungry cats. The only unusual thing that happened is the brake failure on the new truck. Fortunately, I had the horses back on Montpelier berfore the lights went kablooey (which term, if you are interested, comes from WWII. The town in France called Blois. US soldiers pronounced it Blooey , not having traveled much or having been proficient, for the most part, in any language. That battle was a disaster for the US and allies, so the saying “ka-blooey!” came into the english language as US slang). And there you have the rest of the story.
