Rod glad the surgery is over and hoping for a perfect recovery, that 70% becomes 100%.

Cordillera we are watching the weather and hurricane news both for you and the US east coast and hoping all is well with you folks. Pretty scary what we see on TV.

Hot and humid today but I got out for a good ride, was able to go through that woods that I haven't been on since spring because of the flies. The trails were muddy but not too bad and both mare and I enjoyed being on them again. One hill that is fairly long, not too steep but somewhat greasy with all the rain we have had so when coming back I got off and lead her down it, she managed just fine and i could have stayed on but I remember one hill years back, steep and slippery and her hind feet just went out from under her and we went down. I fell free so no harm done but I am more careful now especially way back in where it is not too accessible for vehicles if I needed help. Better safe than sorry.

The weekends this month have been more like July than September! Of course, we've had some lovely weather during the week when I'm stuck at work.... I haven't ridden in at least a month! Tomorrow's supposed to be another hot one. I can hope it isn't miserably hot and humid in the morning.

@tinyliny - I am so jealous of you for getting to do that 100 mile ride! And WOOT! that you did it. Crow away!! And the same goes with the urban riding. I used to do it all the time as a kid in AZ - and thought nothing of it - but now the thought of it is kinda scary, at least on Tango. So far, Cally has never let me down in being the steady-eddy I need and want when crossing streets. Tango rides near them with no fuss, but I'm not sure how he'd handle waiting for a light to turn before crossing. LOL! We don't really have an "urban" areas nearby, though, just a lot of 50 mph two lane roads with a grassy verge.

@Rod - Glad the surgery went well. Hope you have no more troubles with that.

@ Cordilla Cowboy - I've been watching that typhoon, too. I have a co-worker with family in Manilla. Sounds like just rain down there. I hope you, your wife, and your property fare well.

Been getting my horse ridden a lot. Finally.

Daughter and grandkids caught up with me after she finished working. I was done so she went for a short ride and then gave the kids rides. They insisted on helping me lead my horse back to his paddock. I think he likes that, because they take smaller steps making me go slower.

that anyone is 'jealous' of me, somehow makes me happy., wierd, I know . . .


Yeah, the horse I lease , which I call, "X", is a pretty steady guy. He's an Andalusian, so, let's just say he has an opinion on things. But, more and more I appreciate how reasonable he is. Even being upset at the crossing, dancing on the concrete , waiting for the light to change, he did nothing more than express a bit of irritation. Nothing really bad.



such good horses!

I also am praying very hard for the folks in NC and SC. I feel so bad for them.
Don't know that it's blasť. I made a conscious decision to move into a place nicknamed Typhoon Alley. Knowing that, we built sturdily, and on high ground. Our hooved stock have the freedom to roam a wooded pasture much larger than I could ever dream of having back stateside. I've followed the trails they've made into the sheltered places in the bamboo. I trust their instincts.


I also remember my grandmother, who lived in South Florida. She shrugged hurricanes off nonchalantly. This was the same lady who chased an alligator from under her car back into the canal with a broom. My dad scolded her for it over the phone.
"Mama, you're 90 years old! You shouldn't be doing that!"
She replied,
"It was just a little one. Only about 5 feet long."


But, we came out OK. It made landfall about 2:00AM. Predictably, we lost power almost immediately. It came back on about 6:00PM tonight. The eye tracked north of us. We got mostly wind all night, and rain all day today. No damage to our house in town, nor to any of our immediate neighbors.


The only damage on the ranch was the roof on the lightly built outdoor kitchen. That's a simple repair. Haven't yet heard how folks in the direct path of the storm fared.


Hoping that folks in the Carolinas come off as well.

@Cordillera Cowboy I'm glad you did ok through the storm.

@Change I hear you on the weather. By the time I can saddle up it will be 90 degrees. The humidity is 87%. I guess I am going to take the day to do mostly indoor stuff. I am SOOOOOOOOOO ready for cool weather.

@Cordillera Cowboy , I just read on the news that a family of 4 was killed in a landslide in the Cordillera Mountains. How close were they to you? Such a tragedy. Hope the folks around you are OK, and I'm so happy that you and your family are OK.

We may have read the same article. The best I can tell, that happened on the northernmost tip of the island, some 300 miles away. Reports are filtering in. It seems that preemptive, even forced, evacuations and proactive staging of emergency equipment and supplies has helped mitigate the loss of life. So far, I've seen reports of 25, and "dozens" dead. A far cry from the 6,000 lost in the last super typhoon.


The Cordillera mountain range is large. It's called the backbone of Luzon. We are near the southern end of it, where it connects to the Sierra Madre range by way of the Carabalo Sur Mountains. For reference, here is a relief map. The Cordillera are the wide range that runs roughly down the center. The wide valley between those, and the Sierra Madre is the Cagayan Valley, often called the "rice bowl of the Philippines."
