Decided that I need more to do now that I'm retired (and my old horse is also retired).....so today we brought this girl home.  She's a Tennessee Walking horse....the only "ride" for old ladies....nice and smooth Laughing.  Greg named her Reba, since my other horse is named Waylon....trying to keep it country....LOL.  I guess this could mean I really am planning a future???  I've been leery about committing to anything big since treatment....so took a pretty big step on this commitment.

I would say “a horse is big”, but I also say it is the kind of big we all need after traveling this road (or bus that it was).  I guess you might say you are actively retired.

Keep having fun,

Little things can bring a smile to our face, and your photo this morning did just that, put a smile on my face because you are living life.

I typed P51 for a reason, as you can see by my name, I think Military allot, and the P51 was a plane used during WWII by our Troops fighting the enemy. Your a Fighter P51.

My Best to You and Everyone Here

That definitely is a big dog...., ummm horse, LOL...

Beautiful horse...

So this means you have to hang around for at least another 25 - 30+ years (or longer)...., can't leave Reba hanging you know.

Congrats girl, you deserve a little abi-normalness in your life.

Wow... she's beautiful. There are a lot of folks around here that own horses. I've always thought of them as big dawgs ;) 

Best wishes with her!
