A day of celebration

So through dithering and jumping the gun, we have made a committment to our little yellow dog, Bhuie, and she will be staying with us after all. We had become too blind to her needs for play, exercise and challenge, and had developed unrealistic expectations for a young dog. Totally unfair for her, and we looked into those beautifully open and innocent eyes and hung our heads.

Forgive us, little one.

Our birthday today, shared with the extraordinary swearing in of Barak Obama as our 44th President. What a day to celebrate the joy of so many who have prayed for this day all their lives! While we do not embrace his policies and vision, we wish this young man strength, integrity, courage and wisdom in the years to come. He holds in his hands the truly unique opportunity to forge a new chapter in American history. He can take us further ahead in the dream of the founding fathers in a wise and positive way. Or take us off track, away from the principles of a Constitutional Republic. He spoke with strong words and force of conviction to 2 1/2 miles of multitude and brought tears to the eyes of many of us.

We place you in God's hands, Mr President. May he be your guide.

Slowly, surely, we are beginning to find our way back into the world of riding. We have found a small stable wherefrom we can teach and ride. We feel at home there, and hope to be able to make a valuable contribution to its programs. Two horses yesterday, two more tomorrow and so forth.

Just a note, here. More later.
