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.

The Ya-Ya's alive and well

My two life friends and I got together last night for a evening of good eating, laughing and catching up. It's so good to be with people who know all your secrets, faults, and they still love ya. It's rare that you can be yourself and not be afraid of judgement or anger... lots of disagreement but also lots of support.
I will admit... it's hard to be my friend. I say what I think and mean what I say. I'm not hurtful or mean to bash dreamsbut don't ask me what I think if you don't want to hear what I think. I won't lie to you.
I have no problem swimming against the flow or being different than everyone else... I had a few aunts that loved to hurt my mother by asking, "Why ain't Patty Jean like everyone else?" (forget that I wrote that nick name because I do not answer to that anymore)
Now I ask you who would want to be so common and gray in personality that you'ld blended into everyone around you???
My kids call us the Ya-Ya friends. No we have not become blood sisters but one (Pam) is distant kin to me.
Did you miss me yesterday? It's sleeting and cold outside, so I put a spring event picture up for ya'll to enjoy. Do you think my granddaughter did more ball playing or more dirt playing.

Word for today: different -- partly or totally unlike in nature, not the same

Don't run with the pack, be different and hunt your own trails.

Thanks, I try to be positive most of the time. It takes too long to get out of negitive moodys so I just don't go there.,
