Plugging Right Along

  Gizmo and Sarah I survived OKC, but I didn’t survive being back in Michigan!  I have been sick since we returned, and I finally went to the doctor because I was so tired of feeling like crap.  Had a respiratory infection, and after a week of antibiotics, I am actually starting to feel better. […]

Doing Things the Hard Way

Sunday was bitterly cold.  I bundled up, and headed off to the barn.  It turns out that I shouldn't have worried about being cold because Blondie was being an utter turd and it seemed that I had to fight with her most of time I near her.  I should have known that something was up […]

Horrible!  I'm sick of winter!  Die already! Wednesday, I rode Jimmy. M had me slated for Harley, but I asked if I couldn't ride someone a […]

The grass is always greener... Doesn't it figure that I'd wake up this morning feeling like crap? I hope I'm not coming down with a cold. I had a terrible headache, and now I have a lingering and distracting sore throat. I always get sick just in time for the holidays or a horse show, and […]
