The women went out riding last Sunday and Stitch rode Pookie, who came back to us last year after a seven year stint as a carriage horse at the Kentucky Horse Park. Here they are at the end of the trail.
Speaking of pictures, I had to go to Duluth (gateway to Central Minnesota) on Thursday for a doctor appointment (three months post-surgery, yay!) and happened to look at craigslist the day before. There was an ad for an old Pentax slr with three lenses and some filters. I contacted the seller and arranged to meet him at his workplace (a high end non-leather motorcycle apparel manufacturer) where we met and I left with the goodies. The seller was from Manchester, UK, which I thought was very cool. Anyway, just about all Pentax lenses ever made fit on their modern digital slr cameras. I got excited to be home during daylight yesterday and took a few shots with the 80-200 zoom lens. I need to practice a lot more, but it is fun to see what can happen. Here are some Pine Grosbeaks and a Pine Siskin.
I have strong political opinions, but rarely mention them here as so many people do it so much better, but I have to pass along this groaner. A liberal, a conservative, and a moderate walk into a bar. The bartender says, " What'll it be Mitt?"
Don't forget your special friends on Tuesday. Valentine's Day is a way to show them you
