A NO HORSE DAY…

I can say it was a No Horse Day, but I can’t say they ever left my mind. Spent the morning at home, and the afternoon with our son and daughter-in-law. Actually took time to watch a movie, Captain Marvel, and I did enjoy the movie. I did not enjoy the loud music, so stuffed …

Love and The Old Horse

I visited the Old Horse, Buddy, this week, just two times. I cannot say I feel quite right about it since for so many years, 30 to be exact, I have seen him almost daily. It’s hard for me to accept that I have basically put him “out to pasture.” Not really, for heavens sake, …

Remember this childhood

I was a child.  I still had a father and a mother.   I pause to remember being in the basement with my father watching him work on a wooden bench.  He smiled.  He tossled my hair.  His shining black hair and startling blue eyes looked upon me with warmth and love, and I felt safe and …
