Younglings have told me that it means no text. In this case, simply thank you for the picture. Blood pressure reducer for me.

20. My guess is that you are going to REALLY like it here.

A VERY well-run site with a GREAT membership. Extremely welcoming and supportive, but no one puts up with bullshit. Self-curated, and a very high premium put on truth and accuracy.

21. Thanks for making me feel welcome.

Everything you've written is what I'm finding out daily. Best of all is the no bullshit. And expectations of truth and accuracy - both of which have been abused and altered over the last five years. It is very nice to read other members' opinions and advice. Glad to have an outlet for my photography too.

Isn't it fantastic to be able to feel confident in what you're reading? All in all, you've landed on your feet by coming here.

I'll watch for your photography.

It feels like there is new life to democracy these days and I'm encouraged by what I read and see here.

24. I'm glad you feel that way.

Now, I have to let you know you've been conversing - quite nicely, if I may say so - with a moron.

It just occurred to me that the two horses in the OP were captured by you. Am I right? I sure feel like I am, and that's pretty obtuse on my part. Great picture...full of joy, as I said before.

25. Moron? I thought you're the Subgenius!

Of course I'm guessing "sub" is far closer to "genius" than "moron."

As it turns out neither of those horses is ours. My wife hosts horsemanship clinics here from time to time. The near horse belongs to the instructor of the clinic that was going on at the time, the other to one of the participants. They were turned out in one of our pastures during their "down time." I take pictures at these clinics so my camera was handy when these two horses got to running around.

My wife also runs a boarding farm for retired horses whose owners leave them in our care. These owners believe their horses have given all they had to their humans when they all were younger and deserve a quiet, safe, comfortable retirement. The business has worked out quite well.

26. That is superb! What a way to turn a love into a life, so to speak!

I didn't mean that the horses were yours, I meant the photo. The connection just slipped past me, as so many things do. It's wonderful, and you should take more credit for your efforts!
