Did you get your pony?

When you were little, what were you promised, and what did you receive???

In my family (in the early 60's) it was a big deal to plan a trip to disneyland. never made it. i could care less, but my MOM actually spoke to me about it a couple of years ago, and how bad she felt that we never made it. i tried to keep a straight face, but then i burst out laughing.

my husband had a horse when he was growing up.

i did manage to have a sailboat. that was pretty neat. i thought every kid had one.
I had a horse when I was a girl... a pretty little palomino. She was a surprise gift from my Dad... I don't know who was more excited about it, me or him!

My biggest disappointment growing up was a broken promise from my Mum. She promised she'd quit smoking when we got back from Disneyland. We were extra-excited about the trip because of that. Well, when we got home, she told us that we were indeed "back from Disneyland", and tomorrow we would be "back from Disneyland", and the next day and the next day after that too.

Well, 34 years later, she had a stroke and she has no choice BUT to quit. She's still in hospital and has had no cravings, but she's worried about when she comes home, so she's asked the doctor about a prescription for the patch.

She's doing great - the doctor said if you have to have a stroke, that's the kind to get - other than a slight difficulty with balance, she's the same as always.
Hope your mom is up and running around soon lady c I never got the "pony" as you say...whatever I wanted I got exactly the opposite....like I when I wanted a new rod and reel for christmas I would get a hair dryer...with daisies on it...what the ?????????...later I got tricky and would ask for things that I thought they might give me in hopes of getting what I wanted...did not work well....so I figured the heck with this..I will earn my own money and buy the stuff I want :P
My Mum isn't a "walking girl", so I doubt she'll be up and running around anytime soon!

She's doing great. You'd never know she had a stroke - she looks good and her speech is perfect. Not even tingling, never mind any kind of paralysis. We're very lucky.

My best gift ever was when I was almost 23. Mum gave me some bubble wrap for Christmas with a note telling me to have fun.

I did.
Sorry to hear that your mom is so sick, Lady C.

The patch works though, and should help your mom out!! that's great that she wants to go on the patch, that is more than half the battle is the wanting to change.
I am going to send you a website that is guess what????? bubble wrap :P you can sit there all day and "pop" the little suckers with your mouse....and it makes the same awesome noise as the real stuff
Thank you. I really hope she manages to kick the habit once and for all. I think she really IS motivated this time though...

She really is doing great, but what a shock to see her in the hospital bed, looking so old...

My advice to everyone... call someone you love today and tell them. It'll shock them which will be fun for you... and will probably be the best gift they've ever received.

Almost as good as bubble wrap, maybe.

Is that the one that's a light blue colour? I used to have that site, but I lost it when I got my new computer.

I had so much fun with that...
Lady C just for you

Peapod I ask you this in a serious manner( ): have you had any ... ehm bad experiences with men?
With virtual bubbles, who needs men?

Thanks, pea.
Well I would not be peapod if I had no bad experiences But on the whole they are a alright bunch...like my mama says...men are just like roses, its the pricks you gotta watch out for Not that I would go so far to call any of my ponies such a name Cosmos new some of my ponies....she knows all the trick riding I had to do
Ponies are great little pets, and they only smell if you don't take care of them or you dislike the smell of leather.
I love the smell of leather...in fact I have a leather jacket and whenever I wear it...I can be seen sniffing it alot in the neighbourhood...it smells really good
Oh between leather, gas and plastic it's not wonder I'm messed. Does anyone else enjoy these smells too?
You guys are fast today! now I gotta go work for awhile

What's so nice about leather??
Well it feels good and its light...it looks good, and it smells good...put on some shades...and you are rocking but I prefer flip flops and a old terry cloth robe...striped if its handy :P Don't they wear leather in holland....oh loaded question there eh? :P
Rick van Opbergen

The whole country of Netherlands is like this, they are very kinky people beware. You think Paris is the sex capital of Europe?? You have not seen anything yet
Thanks for the tip I considered letting the little dutch boy stay at place if he wanted to visit canada...I have plenty of nephews his age...but I do not want them corrupted :P
My parents never promised me anything to behave. Except that if I didn't Mom would beat me with a wooden spoon.
wooden sppon ouch! ours was my dad's belt...however when my mother wacked us...we had to stuff my faces in the pillow we were laughing so hard :P
My Dad's weapon of choice was the belt. The worst part was though that he wouldn't even drag his butt off the couch. He'd make me go get it!
