    Selena and I got out for 22 miles today...the weather was beautiful! We tried to explore some new trails and got lost, but enjoy the fall foliage along the way. We then rode through town to my college campus to have lunch with a couple friends who helped me graze Selena so I could grab a bite to eat. Of course I had to share with Miss Mare so my lunch ended up being half a sandwich and a few chips, lol.

    Dawn, I think Gamer will be fine. She just recently probably noticed that you are asking her to do stuff she didn't volunteer for.

    I rode The Princess in the arena today. She was very pleasant and quiet.

    I had thought about taking her out, but our usually isolated dirt road was covered with traffic. One of the guys in the deer club down that road won $1 million in the lottery last week. Apparently this was celebration weekend. We have never had so much traffic down our little dirt road. I am thinking they all had a headache this morning.

    Gunslinger - OMG did you ever have a "fun"packed weekend. It was lions and tigers and bears OH MY!!

    Sounds like bees/hornets/yellow jackets are the theme right now. I wasn't able to go up to Ebenezer weekend before last but my cousin did and someone stepped off into a ground hornets nest and my friend Stacy's little mare had a rodeo. No one was hurt but lots of stings. They told some people exactly where it happened and not to go and I be danged if they didn't go there with inexperienced riders - kids to boot with no helmets on - and yep, some got stung.

    I was able to ride Saturday with my cousin and we had a blast. Biscuit managed to straddle a little tree that had been pushed down. He got a little excited for a few seconds and then calmed down. I tried to get him to back off it totally but he just stood there when he backed into a tree. I had to get off and pick up his left leg and push down the little tree to get him untangled for it. God bless him - he is a saint. I had a video of the entire thing and can't get it to upload!

    Thanks for the prayers and thoughts for my mom - I am going to ask for them for my hubby. His elderly father passed away yesterday. Barry was close to his dad and I am sorting through pictures for the funeral program. It will be a rough couple of days - I am not fond of Honey Darling Precious' sisters. They have made my life pretty dang difficult in the past. The rosary is Tuesday which is my mother's birthday with his burial on Wednesday. My mom is supposed to come home Wednesday. Barry has a doctor's appointment in Houston with a specialist Tuesday morning so we are still going to that and I will try to see my mom then. Talk about being pulled in a bazillion directions all at once.

    My horse is my respite. Hoping to get some time to see him this weekend. I told Kellie I wanted to ride Saturday after I deliver a wedding cake no matter what the weather is

    Well, I am SO sorry to hear about Barry's Dad. I am praying for you all, all the time.

    Denise, I am so sorry for all the trouble you are having. It seems like you keep getting hit from every direction.

    Thanks ladies. I used to be very close to Barry's parents but had become estranged from them a number of years ago. Had I not been their DIL and just a friend they would have been ok. They were not really good with personal boundries or respecting their children/DIL as adults. My mom, bless her heart, has a healthy respect for boundries. LOL Barry said a number of years back "your mom is nice...mine is not". She could be nice, super talented in many ways but her pettiness could make one crazy.

    It is odd though. 4 years ago in August on a Friday Pat collapsed on the floor and we found out he had a very large brain tumor that was not malignant. The following Monday my mom called and was bleeding - we found out it was uterine cancer on the day Pat had brain surgery on Wedesday. The day in between my daughter was involved in a hydroplaning accident on IH 10 where she bounced off BOTH sides of IH10 and was clipped by a 18 wheeler. OMG all of this in literally a weekend. Now, Pat passed away, mom is on her last journey and my daughter is in Georgia at some huge Woodstock concert. UGH I wish she was home so I would know she was safe.

    Ok..y'all know more about me and my life than some of my closest friends! So I guess that means we are all Besties and need to have a huge trail ride complete with cowboy cooking, bonfires, horses everywhere and loads of fun. I'll bring cakes....

    I think a nice long trail ride followed by great food & desserts is just the thing!

    Between Friday, Saturday and Sunday I rode a total of 21 hours...

    Rode Roux Friday and Sunday - he is one tired pony and he did amazing. I am also tired, soar and sun burned but I can't wait for next time!!! Wasn't able to get mileage recorded but I know there was quite a few!

    Denise, Barry and you and your mom are all in my prayers. There does seem to be a whole lot of sadness for you right now, I wish for you a change to an overwhelming bucket full of joy.

    Ready and willing to go on that campout...I just bought a couple BBQ beef roasts at Winn Dixie, be happy to toss them in a dutch oven for when we're done riding.
