6 Thank you CBD. I love Remington, and I really miss the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, that has a great collection of Remington and Russell paintings and sculpture. Remington especially understood the cowboy and his horse, and their relationship on the open range. Beautiful piece.

42 Remington, odd that you should bring this up. Just yesterday, in the thread about the Worcestershire house with the Worcestershire chimneys, I was going to mention the Remington House which I thought was in Oklahoma. But my memory failed me because apparently what I was thinking was the Winchester house in California. A house under construction for humna er mumble years because the lady of the house was told by a fortune teller that if she ever stopped construction on her house, she would die.

Never mind. Words trigger memories often unrelated to the conversation. More tea?

It was entertaining but unbelievable. How wd Mike sneak up on that guy? How wd he tie him up? Why wd the good Samaritan stick around? Either drop the guy off in town or let him use your phone. And why didnt Jimmy call an ambulance himself? Hope this is the end of Chuck. Recently watched Clue which stars a young good looking Michael McKean.

You know how they keep introducing characters from BB which is a great idea? Who is the gangbanger that works for Hector and set him up and always talks to Mike? Was his character in BB?

61 Eromero, you and my husband and daughter would get along smashingly. They love Westerns. I get to hear Lonesome Dove quotes so much that I can quote it, and I haven't seen it.

I appreciate them, but don't really enjoy watching them so much. But I would definitely love to be out on the open range, watching the storms roll in, or riding the fences. I hated doing that as a kid, and now, I'd give just about anything to be back doing it.

71 Smith Wesson joke reminds me. Couple days ago, NPR had a weepy story about safety-ring user-only pistol systems, and why dum 'ol NRA types are a-skeered to try them. Although they did admit that they usually don't work, they failed to mention the several laws that make them mandatory once they enter the market.

But never mind that. They opened with a reference to "General" Colt, who made men equal. Which lent a lot of credibility, NPR-level, to the rest of the story.

Have Gun, Will Travel was my favorite TV show, though I liked all the westerns - and there were a LOT back then.

203 I always read the local obits (just to make sure I'm not in there). Found this yesterday:

Robert Perry Hellem, age 89, passed peacefully on Wednesday, April 6, 2016 after suffering a stroke.

He and Barbara Claire (Sanborn) were grade school sweethearts. They married New Years Eve 1948 after he returned from Japan during WWII. He was born and raised in the Chicago, IL area, moving to Derby, KS in 1997 and to Bartlesville, OK in 2013.

Bob worked for Kraft Foods as a Packaging Engineer for 38 years. His idea of wrapping American Cheese in single slices changed the way we make sandwiches....

204 Here's another talking point, endlessly repeated:

Kasich is campaigning in NY saying that he'd never sign one of these religious liberty bills, that we should just move on and get along.

The irony is that NY already has one. It was included in NY's gay marriage legislation which got adopted in 2011. Before Justice Kennedy wrote his fortune cookie gay marriage opinion, a few states had passed gay marriage legislation but these statutes routinely included provisions like Georgia's Religious Liberty Bill. Thus, gays could marry but if you said you had a religious objection you didn't have to bake them a cake, etc.

So now, thanks to Kennedy's 57-state legislation, we don't have a modicum of balance. And gays have proven to be lousy winners.

Unfortunately, this is why we have to fight for every yard. And what happens when squishes like Kasich are put in charge.

238 To be, well, not fair to the Indians, but to introduce an element of veracity, the horses they et all up were tiny li'l things, way too small to ride. And the people who ate them were an awfully long time ago, perhaps not even the same genetic stock. The plains Indians were relative newcomers. Nobody lived in the Great American Desert (now known as the Breadbasket of The World, but Whitey's Poisoning Us with Gluten) if they hadn't been driven out of somewhere else.

But the Indians came from the Steppes (or close to it, at least). Evidently, the Indians just went crazy with all the open land and decided to kill and eat everything in sight and then just walk south to find some more rich places to hunt the local fauna to extinction.

When they ran out of room to walk farther south and ran out of local animals to slaughter they turned to ripping out human hearts for fun.

Tennis shoes, or rubber soled shoes are the absolute worst-they catch on the stirrup and hang up very easily. The Riding boot-either the English style formal boot, or the western "cowboy" boot are better because the leather tends to slide off the leather rather than catch it, in the event you need to "disembark" the animal. Accidents happen, and you can still hang up with boots, but it's less likely to happen.

Having good riding lessons before getting on an 800-1000 pound animal is also a good idea.

I used to barrel race, and if your horse decides it's not going to do that today, you will not convince it otherwise. Nephew used to saddle bronc and bull ride-he finally wised up after the second broken spine.

Its not a condition of place, but culture. I'm certain there were other steppes cultures in Eurasia that did not domesticate the horse, but they're obviously extinct.

Also, as for riding, different cultures just did different things. The eskimos used dogsleds, the Sami used reindeer, the hindus used elephants, etc. Use of the horse is something that became dominant over time is all I'm saying.

My mom and her business partner used to raise and train 3-day event and dressage horses. Once a year whether I needed it or not I would go for a ride and once a year I usually ended up on my ass.

Horses may be dumb animals but they know when someone doesn't know what the hell they are doing and these were highly trained athletes so they were more than capable of taking me for a ride and depositing me when they were so disposed.

And yea, sneakers are a really bad idea.

Deflection. I doubt even the strongest proponents of personal carry by military members believe that such carry will prevent all, or even many assaults.

269 Only about ten years ago, there were horse censuses reporting that there were more horses here than ever, and all used for recreation. Then the Short, It's Over, Hardly Remember It Recession hit, and horses were being abandoned all over by ruined owners who could no longer afford their upkeep. I have not heard if the population is recovering.

Try to imagine, a little over a hundred years ago, how people would have interpreted that decision. You lose your job, so you give away your horse?
We have too many horses roaming the range, and no one is rounding them up to use?

Madness, they would say. You people have lost your minds there, in the future.

271 Jackstraw-first, dang, your mom is awesome. I tried to convert my barrel mare to dressage, and she, ah, resisted. A lot. It's the most challenging form of riding and training, so wow.

mustbequantum-yet another aspect of the "which bathroom" quandary that I don't think anyone thought of. Sure, let's just make those lines longer now, why don't we??

273 Oh hey

Our County govt is searching for a Director of Ethics [not the title - if there's any interest I'll post it] becoz the previous admin was embroiled in accusations, ok? Allegations of corruption.

Anyway, they're looking for someone with law enforcement or legal/prosecutorial background. I suspect a good deal of it is window-dressing: Yes be a watchdog, but also be a political animal.

Both the old and the new admins are republican ones. So... if you want to be part of a corrupt bureaucracy, come on down

274 272-and they were probably bought by Mexican meat producers-horse is a favored meat down there. Nephew bred foundation quarter horses after he finished breaking his back on bulls, and after the Texas fires, which destroyed his hay fields, cattle, and not a few horses, and the the recession, ended up having to sell some at auction. All were bought by the meat producing companies. Made him absolutely sick.

About not letting your daughter of friend go to the bathroom albr.
"Stay safe, have a bathroom buddy."
"Don't get caught with you pants down."
"Anyone could walk in..."

So there's still opportunities for graft there?

How do I apply!

280 261: The Army General has already been proven wrong. One of the Tennessee recruiters was carrying (against regulations), and returned fire, driving off the home-grown terrorist. He saved lives at that recruiting station and should be decorated for initiative and bravery, not punished. I don't think they dare bring charges, but who knows if he'll be flagged.

I guess it sort of depends upon whether you start at the bottom and work up, or start at the top and work down. But i know what you mean.

298 Two things:

1.) Theodore Roosevelt loved Remington paintings. I have no idea how he felt about Remington rifles. I think there was one with a box magazine he liked.

2.) Seeing the desert reminds me that I can actually go out to the Navy's version thereof when my probation ends, and take those program management jobs offered last year, so the craps ends, period, as of today: the contractors give up on being able to do any kind of initiation or rookie business--no ifs, ands, or buts--and they are cordially invited to take their proper contractor place (didn't have to be this way, but they chose it) and the GS model manager starts acting within Federal guidelines for leadership, and that means no "I'll condescend to the rookie" also. Or else.

I earned my wings, I earned my cockpit slot, and I earned my degrees, and they are more than anybody else has. I have more master's than the rest of the team combined, and I presume pointy-nose flight time too. Enough. I'm varsity I'm done being blown off simply because I'm new, and I'm done being patronized.

Or else we start going up the hill with complaints, starting with discussions about offensive language.
