    Good morning. Had a great ride yesterday. Only got to 85 so beautiful weather, except the wind. But, a lot of the trail is in the trees. Here's pic if anyone wants to see. I (believe it or not) didn't wear my tie dye, wore a purple shirt. My friend wore tie dye so we'd match just for me, and I let her down! Lol Took Lil for her first ride. She did EXCELLENT! Maybe spooked at something twice, and they were small startles. The grey that was with us, a seasoned trail horse, was being a monster, he spooked at everything! Dumped his rider once, almost dumped her a dozen times! And, they were worried about me and Lil! Lol

    Happy Sunday.

    Thank you, yes it's sad he passed. Heartbreaking to go through. He had a good life though and hot to run with his own harem of mares in a nice field.

    We got rain dumped on us at 5am this morning. How do I know? I was at work. Where I put in a time-off request for the meetup. Found out that one girl is gone for 2 months and another quit. Wasn't informed of that. So we will see if they let me take time off. Sucks being short staffed. Keeping my finger's crossed though, as I rarely ask for time off. I'll might only get Sunday off, so would have to come after work on Saturday. So if i'm a wee bit zombie-ish... ;)

    DB, I usually wear whatever the smallest size is, but if I'm the only one then nonworries, I'll take a medium. Thank you so much!

    NU SHE LOOKS GREAT! Both of you do - how cool is that to finally get to ride her out somewhere? Whoo hoo!!!!

    Speaking of weather, we got a HUGE crazy storm that hit us about 4:45 am. It woke me up and hubby too, and then I reminded him he left his motorcycle sitting in the driveway with his helmet sitting on it............LOL! I've never seen him get out of bed that fast. He retrieved his helmet (it has the radio inside so we can talk while we ride - so it ISN'T waterproof) and left the bike to get a good wash.

    So what do you do when you are wide awake at 5 am and can't go back to sleep? Why you can more tomatoes and make pecan pies! Haha! Wish I could share with you guys - this is good stuff.

    CC and canning at 5 a.m. - that's dedication! The blackberries are really ripening around here so went out this morning - much later than 5 since I need my beauty sleep - oh well, my sleep anyway - until around 8 and picked along the pasture fence. Storm and Skye, one on each side, sniffed and snuffed and helped. You know that photo of the two horses and a mule and the caption - there's one in every crowd - well, that was us although there might have been two mules and a horse as seen from the back. ANYway, it was pretty funny - one berry for the pail, one for the horse, one for the pail, one for the mule... Their help didn't last too long but I cleaned and froze almost a full quart. And next weekend the blueberry farm in Daingerfield is supposed to open! Hot stuff!!! Was down to my last gallon bag of frozen berries from last year. My mother, who's in a nursing home in Mt Pleasant, came for a few days and helped me pick last year but am not sure she's up to it this year. We'll see. But it was so nice to have blueberry muffins and pancakes on cold winter mornings and I love 'em with strawberry yogurt or frozen vanilla yogurt! The blueberry place charges $3.25 lb and the season lasts about two months. I'm a picking fool and am glad they don't weigh their customers before and after. And Storm loves the fresh ones - a nice change from the treats. Good week to everyone and enjoy the weather - it's supposed to be less humid around here for a few days. Gotta get some riding in!

    Good Morning my fellow Texans. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and has a marvelous Monday!!!!

    Nu and TG, I guess y'all are going to have to keep us up to date on tbj since her computer broke:(

    We did not get any of the severe weather that was predicted for Saturday, we barely got sprinkles.
