Pale Horse

CHECK OUT THIS HORSE! He is my dream horse. My Aunt Janie it trying to give him away to a good home along with her other ones. I can't wait until Lilly is ready to me a momma!

Today started off wierd and has gradually gotten much worse. Who wants to go on vacation with me? Requirements for the vacation would be no phones, no contact with the outside world, somewhere far far away (preferably where they don't speak english), and you have to pay. Who's up for it?

Major Crisis Averted!

Dump had been missing since Monday. We had been playing it cool but by last night we were all pretty worried. So, me...Freda...Mommy...and Jimmy (with the help of Claude and Lottie) launched a recovery mission. Everybody knows when a cat has been gone more than 2 days rescue becomes recovery. No luck. We looked everywhere including the sides of the road. I spent a great part of this morning calling local vets giving notice of a tough bowlegged black cat. I even called some questionable mafia connections for any sighting whatsoever with no luck. Well, my mom just called me and Dump is hungry/scraggly/and sitting on my porch. It's a good thing because we were drawing straws as to who was going to call John F. and tell him his cat was awol.

Not me!

Evening Run

So, Jimmy and I ran last night. This morning I can't walk. My goal is to excercise at least every other day...when I'm not hasseling Cole and Lilly. I'm currently in the market for a horse trailer driver for my show in December. If you would like to apply for the job let me know and I'll have you drive the cones. Cole is precious cargo. How about this cold weather? It's almost worth the tornado storm that brought it. Lilly is getting fuzzy and the cats are trying to sneak in the house...sure signs that Fall is comming.

I'm going to marry the guy who created the McGriddle.

I'm ready for Christmas. Did I just say that? This morning I walked outside and was hit by a wall of cold air. Fall is my all time favorite time of the year.

I rode Lilly and Cole...I'll spare you the comments. They did fine. I hate that I won't be showing at the fair this year. I'm just not there mentally and Cole isn't there physically. He has a pretty massive grass gut. I saw our new neighbor riding her horse yesterday. She had head phones stuck in her ears and she paid more attention to them than the oncomming traffic. I hope she doesn't get run over.

Rachael's Christmas list: (I'm on a list kick)

1. Lottie spayed.
2. Cutback saddle. (A rich person will have to buy me this because the one I want is $500+)
3. A girlfriend for my widowed goldfish.
4. A diet for Cole.
5. Claude to not be a nut job.

Underwater Basket Weaving

Points of interest (at least to me):

1. Ladies, get your dresses on...the reenactment approaches. And bring $20 to weave a basket. This is not an option. If I have to, so do you.

2. Noah crammed 14 pounds of dirt in his mouth today.

3. Claude took a ride in the back of the truck all the way to John's house on Tuesday. He is now grounded.

4. For Christmas Cole will be getting a #3 plantation shoe. In the words of JJ; "He was dragging in his right rear and was off in the front so we put a set of trailers and dropped a six on him and he was knockin' it down, Bo." Ahhh, I need a life.

5. I just ate so much Greek food I now have duel citizenship.
