A New Beginning!

Starting now - I am going to be my ol' happy self again...or at least I am gonna try like crazy!

So - let me introduce you to El Dorado's Stonewall Jackson (aka Stoney). We do not own this horse but this is my daughter Joy who is showing him and let me tell you; this horse is not only amazing looking, moving, and all around pleasant to be around....he is a STALLION!

He is the sire (Father) of this horse - who is mine - Dominus Villa...Also pretty talented and good looking ...but just not always as when he started to rear up with me...grrrr... Anyway - I have decided that since my little riding accident, before I start to ride this again...

I am going to ride this...and see how it feels since Don and I have not been bike riding in about 4 weeks! Actually this is a photo of my Daughter - Joy and I right after she got her bike. I think we like the same sports!

...and then I will tackle this beast again...and tell you how it goes!

Hi Julie:
OMG what a day you had yesterday. I'm glad it was you and not me (smile)because you kept such a great sense of humor about it, and I probably would of been pulling my hair out by the end of the day.
I got a kick out of your mouse episode and the old man and the girl at Walmart.
The horses are so gorgeous, I can see why you love them so much.
I hope Trestin (great name by the way) is feeling better soon. Reflux is miserable.
And the long walk in the parking lot, not to mention doing chores after working all day, and being sore on top of it, gotta give you credit.
Hang in there.

You do like adventure, girl! Motorcycles scare me. I'm a wuss, I admit it! :-) Susan

Julie, that horse is beautiful as is the girl riding it. I can't help but laugh at some of your days. Gosh you have been through so much since the hurricane. Bless your heart. I hope you feel better after your fall. I only rode our horse one time and it was enough for me---the other horse Stoney was too wild for me to get on.
My oldest had reflux as a baby, as did I, and mine returned as an adult, so I had to have surgery to fix mine. They put my baby on Soy and that was the only think he didn't project like Linda Blair. Hope they find something to help the baby.And that picture of the thong will stay in my mind all day-lol Love Ya, Pat
