It's been a full day. Cliff and I, with the usual two granddaughers, as well as seventeen-year-old Amber, went to early Church. When I got home I started the yeast rolls rising, rolled out noodles, peeled potatoes, and in general got dinner started. I even made a pumpkin pie. Rachel helped with cleanup, and then we saddled up to ride. I planned to ride Blue, with Rachel on Buddy, but Natalie wanted to ride; and I felt she was ready to ride alone, as long as someone was alongside to guide her. So she took my place. As you can see by the pictures, everything went smoothly. Then Kevin rode Blue awhile, with Rachel and Buddy (I think that's his name now). Finally my grandson Arick rode Blue, and (this is the great part) I rode Buddy! He performed better today than he has since Rachel got him. I do believe he's going to work out. It's going to be nice that two people can ride together sometimes.
On days like this, I feel rich as a king to be able to live in the country.
