Speaking of birthdays---what happened to the line on the home page 'announcing' them?

Cute pony, Stone.

We lost it months ago when the site needed to be redone (some technical glitch, remember?) and everything got wiped off the calendar.

Inside every plank, I guess, there's a pony.

Nice work, Stone.

Stone, that is seriously one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever seen.
“And another thing. You don't have to "move on" either. Not until you're ready. People say, Oh, you should be grateful. They say, Oh, it's time for you to move on. I'm like, What are you, a cop with a nightstick? I'll move on when I'm done playing the blues on my harmonica, thank you very much.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

You don't have to move on until you're ready.”

What a fabulous gift! Did you design the pattern or did it come from somewhere else?

Thanks everyone. The plans came off the Internet. It's part of a fundraiser being run by a woodworker on the Internet. A bunch of companies are donating money to a children's charity for every rocking horse built. So, two birds, one stone.

And she was.

Better that than "two birds, one sneakeater."

These companies of which you speak: Do they require rocking horses of wood
before they'll cough up cash? Will they take horses of paper? Horses of pure
thought?

That's a really nice little horse. Great present!
