I do kinda see him as like a grandpa. B/c my fathers dad died like 10 years ago and my mothers dad lives 8 hrs away, I really don't have grandparents. I only see my dads mother at family functions and we arent at all close. I actually call her Sue. Her first name. Sometimes it's granny sue. I'm closer to my moms mom but still she's far away so its not a great relationship. Soooo Joe is my grandpa. Lol.

I just want to say that this is a great post! It warmed my day.

We can learn so much just from the people that are around us. Nowadays it's so easy to get distracted by the high-tech, materialistic society we live in. This shows the blessing of life's simple moments. That's one of the main reasons why I ride horses and hang around horse people, we all have a sense of the beauty of simplicity; going out and riding. That's what it's all about.

Kudos.

That's so awesome!

My trainer was in her 60s when I was learning to ride and train from her; she had fabulous stories, and even when the lesson was done for the day, my mom and I would wind up staying much later and talking to her.

You can learn a lot by listening to the old timers.. I have heard good, bad, and funny stories that I think about more times than none. I myself am not too young (56) but as long as my ole fat arse can climb up on a horse I will trail ride untill my sun sets...Matter of fact my rig is hooked up and ready to leave tomorrow morning for a 3 day trial ride. I will be doing this for the next 3 weekends...
Happy Trails All....

It is wonderful to make friends from all walks of life and all ages. When I was a teenager and had my horse at a barn I was "best friends" with George the stable manager/trainer. George was a supervisor at a local refinery too. I learned TONS from George and went to the races when I was underaged - you could go in through the trainers gate if you were underaged. LOL I will never forget George. He is one of my fondest memories. When he passed away I was pregnant with my first child. I went to see him one last time and I was heart broken as he was just in his late 60's. He let me ride his horses and taught me so much!

Treasure your friendships. They are the true jewels of life.
