Oh, too fun! Patches is unique!

I'll have to show this to the Darling Munchkin; she'll get a huge laugh out of it!

Thanks for posting this, AOW.

Kat,
I knew that you'd like this one after that recent horseback ride you took.

Don't let Munchkin get ideas about getting a pony as a house pet. ;)

Don't let the other horses see this, or the days of them carrying us around are over... They'll be insisting on payback!!

My chariot is not nearly as glamorous as Plato's Phaedrus had led me to believe it might be.

But then, you could only see have of my quadranga. The winged horses got home way before I did.

HAHA Great video!
I hope that cheeseburger didn't get his digestive system working overtime inside the car.
I guess if you can train a horse to get you beer and answer the phone, you can get him house trained.
This guy needs a woman.

I can't see a thing. I've been having terrible luck with comments today. Blogger has been very buggy for me *sigh*

Cube-I have had problems with blogger today, too! I was trying to post something and took about 10 tries! Comments wouldn't come up, if they did, they wouldn't show the comments! It was frustrating.

I don't often post comedic videos, but I could pass up this one.

Blogger was having fits today. I finally gave up in the early afternoon and took a much needed nap.

Crusader,
This guy needs a woman.

Hehehe. No doubt!

AOW, a nice break from the political scenes. Great entertainment. Thanks.

Old Soldier,
Sometimes one just has to take a break! Glad that you enjoyed this little video.

it's a good thing they didn't take him to Jack in the Box the Patches might have been eating a relative.

This is the funniest quote: "He doesnt actually talk, he just moves his lips..."

NO *hit Sherlock! Why does he feel the need to tell us that? Hahahahaha

Romeocat has a Munchkin? I have a Munchkin! My Munchkin is a cat, but most of the time I call him "Brat Cat!" LOL! He's wild.

This video was so cute I called Walt in to watch it. We both enjoyed the break immensely. Thanks, sweety, for putting this up. These guys love their horsy. What the heck do they need with a woman? The horse gets them their beer, answers the phone, doesn't talk back. What else could a woman do that a horse couldn't... unh... nevermind.

Patches is precious, and that was fun. Thanks!

Well, since no one bothered to ask the bloomin' obvious:

Do horses eat meat? I thought they were vegans.

But, then again, I was the guy back in 1996 up in Egilstaadir Iceland when we went to the farm, that asked the farmer: "Do you have names for all of your sheep?"

AOW,

did anyone point Mr. Ed to this one??

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

 
At 10/21/2006 7:21 AM, Blogger Always On Watch said...

KuhnKat,
Funny that you should Mr. Ed. My being of a certain age, my thought when I saw Patches moving his lips at that phone receiver was "Pity that he can't talk!"

Didn't one episode of Mr. Ed show him pulling a blanket over himself? That portion of this video seemed familiar to me.

Gayle,
Kat's Munchkin is most definitely not a brat. I've met her, so can say that with confidence.

I've yet to show this video to my husband. But I'm sure he'll love it. He once had a large pony named Tiny. I've seen photos of Tiny, and he looked like a barrel with legs. But Tiny could cover some ground very quickly.

EB,
No more Jack in the Box in this area. We used to have one, and it did a lot of business--until some episode with food poisoning.

Steve,
Horses are vegans. But I've heard that they can be trained to eat other foods. My husband's pony loved beer.

Unfortunately for me, I have a distinct fear of horses. I think it stems from the time when I was bitten by one as a child. I learned quickly that you should never feed a horse a carrot with your fingers extended.

 
At 10/21/2006 2:36 PM, Blogger Always On Watch said...

Steve,
I learned that lesson, but not the hard way.

I love horses and am looking forward to the day when my back allows me to ride again.

Farmer,
The winged horses got home way before I did.

The winged horse is magic and can outrun any mortal's chariot.

FJ's horses have a sense of humor, they didn't let on they could fly, they made me find them a taxi! I don't think FJ could have legally flown them in the state he was in!

I learned that you shouldn't drive with one extended either. The other driver might be packing.

The one-finger salute is not well received by some other drivers, particularly in the Deep South. As the saying goes, "Them there's fightin' words!"

I love America

O Bob,
I love America

We Americans are CRAZY about our pets. Of course, sometimes animals ARE more likeable than people. ;)

OMG, I want my own Patches!!!!! Too cute!!!

As for the one finger salute, I did that once when it was dark out on the Jersey Turnpike but sadly it was to a cop, who suggested, after writing me a ticket for speeding, suggested I learn new hand signals. ;)

Esther,

Bwahahahahaha!

Driving the Jersey Turnpike is enough to tax anyone's patience. Same goes for several stretches of Interstate 95.

Once on our way to Fall River, as we were coming out of NYC on I-95 (Getting through NYC was a story it itself!), I hit a giant pothole on the Connecticut side. It was a beautiful day, and I was driving the Mustang convertible with the top down. The rear view mirror, already loose due to other encounters with pot holes, bounced right off. The only reason the mirror didn't fly out of the car: the wiring cable which brings power to the mirror's lights. I won't repeat what my husband had to say when the mirror ended up dangling by its cable.
