Every time I think of Conroe, I think of this guy I worked with in Houston - funny little guy with a body like a penquin. Anyway, we took him fishing on Lake Conroe one day and it was windy as heck - and he got seasick...on an inland lake for heaven sakes. After that we always called the lake the Gulf of Conroe...

Hey, Faceman, I don't know how long ago that was, but with all the jet skis, wave runners, bass boats, and drunken pleasure cruisers on the lake every weekend, it's not hard to get sea sick! Lol.

Gulf of Conroe .. love it!

Headed home for a wedding later this month. Cavender's Boot City, here I come. I may be a dressage queen (I can't even say that without laughing, given the state of my riding clothes) at the barn, but as a native Texan, I reserve the right to wear cowboy boots and a fringed leather jacket and a cowboy hat when and where I like. Only, my jacket is black and so is my hat, but the only boots I have right now are brown and blue Double-H buckaroos. Won't catch me dead wearing those with my jacket and hat. Gotta score me some nice black dress boots...and up here in New England, if you want something other than Ariats (whose cowboy boots don't fit me worth a flip), it's either mail-order or travel.

Add me to Region 3! I'm in Tarrant County and can't believe all the rain we got the past 24 hours. I ride my QH mare just about every day and am enjoying working with my yearling colt. Big wave south to Ellis and down the road to Johnson county people!

Aaah...are you guys having those Evil Days where you can see a few clouds, and you start hoping they'll stick together and make a big cloud that will rain? Or is it the ones were you can see a perfectly good rainstorm going on...10 miles away...while at home it's still bone dry?

I still remember the drought of '98, which I understand has been totally eclipsed by the drought of 2010-11, I was living in BCS at the time (GIG EM) and what I never could figure out was how the heck the air could be THAT sticky and wet, without it raining, ever. Still a mystery to me.

I was 10 minutes into my ride this morning, after spending 15 minutes carefully laying out a big string of cavaletti for trotting stifle exercise, and it started sprinkling. I could see blue sky all around so I reckoned it would buzz off, but no. It was my turn to be under the one raining cloud in a 30-mile radius. I did get 2 passes through those cavaletti before my tack started to get wetter than I wanted it to. I'll burn a candle and send some Rain Ju-Ju down south. Or, better, I'll try to drag it down with me when I fly in for that wedding.
