evening ride

I've made the three appointments for Synvisc injections in my right knee.  The first one isn't until October 8, so I have quite a wait.

I went for a wonderful ride tonight, the longest I've been on in a while.  I rode past the ghost farm, got down and led Blue across the rotten bridge so I could make sure he didn't step in the wrong place, and rode, as I often do, on the river bottom road.  Here's a view from Blue:

There are soybeans to the right and corn on the left, although it doesn't show.  The gold up ahead of us is corn, ready to be harvested, and the line of trees marks where the Missouri River is.  I let Blue have a couple of bites of corn.  He loved it.  On the way home, there's a horse I always let him say "hello" to.  Horses get acquainted by putting nostrils together and breathing one another's breath.

What a relaxing way to end the day.  Sometimes I feel like Roy Rogers and Trigger might be beside me:

I'm sorry you have to wait so long for your appointment.  Living with pain too, I can relate to your situation.

I sure do enjoy 'riding' with you and Blue.
