For those who asked,
For those who asked, my taking care of the horses is going well. They are used to being out to pasture, but due to the nasty weather this weekend (snow, freezing rain and sleet), John put them in their stalls before he left. The two younger ones (4-5 years old) were a little restless since they aren't used to being cooped up. They still did well; no problems with feeding, watering or cleaning out the stalls. Jesse, the oldest and lead mare, is as solid as a rock and nothing upsets her. I finally let them out into the paddock (no pasture for them since it is hunting season) Monday evening - and boy were they happy to kick up their heels! When I left John a message about the critters on Saturday night (I have to leave a message every night on his answering machine), I told him how the two younger ones were restless, but that they were OK and not a problem. He called me at home to ask about my welfare and see if they were giving me any trouble (I told you he is a neat customer to have). I had to reassure him that they were being good for me and didn't mean to worry him that they might be acting up.
At work I am re-starting work on an inventory database. I had started making this database a couple of months ago, but other more pressing issues kept me from continuing to work on it. I did have an Access class a couple of years ago, but never really worked with Access after that. So when I started on the database, I had to dig out my old books (sounds like me and HTML too) to familiarize myself with concepts, designs and practicalities. Well of course, I only got to work on it (on and off) for about a week, so now I will be basically have to re-learn what I have already done. I guess I'm just slow that way - some people you only have to show once and they have it for life - not me, I have to practice it over and over before I can say I really have it.
