A Gentle Horse

I took a nice long ride around the area this early afternoon, such a beautiful day. Stopping by the park, I noticed a couple of horse trailers and horses in the arena so I had a walk down there. There were two really nice ladies there too so of course me being a very chatty person, had to strike up some conversation.

The horse in these photos was only 5 years old and was missing half of its tongue due to the previous owner up in Utah making some mistakes. So sad, the animal doesn’t deserve that of course, and it’s a very friendly horse. I’ll show the other horse in the next post. I admire horses for their beauty and strength but won’t get on one again.

More Late Night Palms

Essentially the same photos as the previous post late yesterday with more processing. Early this morning, I received a call from my sister. My first thought was that something had happened to my dad. Thank God, nothing was wrong with him! She was calling to check up on me regarding the diagnosis of two clogged arteries in my heart. I love you too sis!

We talked about my situation and dads too. We talked about the family and how we seem to have drifted apart from other family members, it’s not like it was in the sixties and the seventies. Some have passed, others have been swept up into the current of their daily lives as we all have been. Sis made me aware of my daughter’s husband in the hospital.

She (daughter) never told me to which I said I feel like an outsider sometimes. I’m not going to call her and be a jerk about that, rather how is he doing? At times like this, I wonder if staying here after the third and final divorce was a good decision. Yes, it was. But I also feel like I should be home in Michigan too, it’s a crappy situation to be in!
