Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

Do we give up or do we give in???

I will be sixty years old in August and I've found that a couple of words have been missing in my vocabulary. I'm going to...

I sat tonight and thought about why they were missing and I came to the conclusion that I had banished them to the dreaming part of my mind. I've given in to the notion that I'm getting too old to be trying new things and to worn out to do the thing I enjoy doing.

Well let me say that thought didn't set well in my head so I banished it to the totally silly never think of it again part of my mind.

Yes I'm slower getting my "to do list" done every day

Yes I have wrinkles on my wrinkles

Yes I take a nap every once in a while... not meaning to of course but hey they should make better TV shows

Yes I'm getting a little grouchy ... oh okay I've always been grouchy but now I can be surly and cantankerous and everyone just chalks it up to my age... I love it!

Starting today I'm going the say out loud one thing "I'm going to" and do my best to do it.

This isn't a bucket list. It's a list of things you can do and enjoy doing.

I'm going to take the time to walk to the pond and see if there is any tadpoles along the edge.
