horse fun

Rachel and I planned to ride last night, but when she got here after work, storms were in the forecast and she decided to wait until today, before work.  So, Anna and I rode instead.  The horseflies are terrible; Old Crook was even bucking a little, trying to get one off his rump.  Still, we had a nice ride.

Rachel isn't a morning person, so I didn't really expect her to show up for a ride today, but she did.  We rode for about forty-five minutes.  The horseflies were bothering both horses, but Blue handles them better than Crook does, and patiently waits for me to squash them.

Now, as for my statement yesterday about leaving AOL, let's face it:  ten bucks isn't that much money.  Probably the only way I'll leave AOL is if they lose my journal archives, or do something to make me really angry.  Now that AIM users can journal as part of the AOL community, I'd no doubt start over that way, and let everyone know where to find me.  I'd do it in e-mail though, not in this journal, just to keep out a couple of undesirables.  I'd NEVER consider letting someone pay my monthly bill (but thanks to those who have offered).  I've seen too many moochers pull this trick, and I know what sort of opinion I have of them.

Have a great day.  I intend to.

I'm glad you're sticking with AOL.  When I thought I could no longer use AOL I was lost.  I hated having to start a new blog somewhere else.  Now I'm back , for awhile at least.  AOL does spoil us and the jounal community is the greatest!   Watch out for those horse flies - they bite !

Enjoy the day !  'On Ya'  - ma

Mother of mine, I do believe those are the best pictures you've ever taken.  Yeah, yeah, my horse is in them, so you'll think I'm biased, but a couple of them look like something you'd see on a horse calendar.  Great job, and thanks for a fun ride this morning.

Glad you're staying!  I think I would really feel a major emptiness if I couldn't check in on your world and words every day.  And I certainly wasn't implying that you were a "moocher" by offering to help with AOL cost.  In fact -- I offered more for my sake than yours.  Just so you know.
