Look who got off the tractor and on my horse.  I've had Blue almost three years, and this is the second time Cliff's been on him.   He did say, however, that it was fun.

We went to Church this morning and saw some angels from our past, Emmet and Myrnell.  Back when Cliff had lost his good-paying job at RB Rice, Emmet had Cliff help out on his dairy farm, and he'd paid him in baby Holstein calves.  I raised those calves on bottles with milk from my family milk cows, and we'd sell them when they were a few months old (one year I raised almost fifty calves).  I don't know how we'd have made it financially without those people.

After Church we rode the motorcycle for a couple hours.  Then Cliff worked in the barn, making room for the hay he just baled; and I rode Blue.  What a perfect day... again.  How many perfect days is one person allowed?

That was nice seeing your friends again. That is a great picture of Cliff. He's all smiles. That is the first picture I have seen of him on a horse at all. You need to print and frame this one. Sounds like a perfect day to me also. Helen

Wow, I just love, love, love horses!!  My father kept care of some one summer when I was a little girl and it was all I could do to keep myself away from them as instructed.  Wish I had some now, but my backyard is the size of a postage stamp and I don't think they allow them here in our subdivision.  We are aching for the day when the UHaul comes and takes us north.  Now, when we move to TN, hmmmm, maybe we could get some then!!  Hugs,

What a fab photo of Cliff! He's looking really great these days. He should ride more often.
