This entry is for my friend, Emily.
Do you remember, Em, telling us recently about your walk and meeting up with the horses? I knew I had these two photos of me and the horse somewhere and I just found them. I pictured you (in place of me) nuzzling up to those beautiful long horse-noses, just like I was doing in these photos which were taken during my first honeymoon (married to 1st husband) back in the ancient year of 1970 out on a friend’s farm.
We’d only been married for a few days or a week at the time Bill took these photos of me and the horse(s).
This was taken on the day – note the “mini-wedding-dress” I was wearing, that certainly shocked a lot of people back then… not the least of whom was the Episcopalian priest who married us!
But hey, that was all the fashion – and I bought that “wedding dress” in a regular woman’s dress shop in Washington, D.C. thus saving thousands of dollars!

Em, I hope you get back to see the horses, maybe bring an apple or a carrot with you for a snack for them… they love those things!
That’s all for now. Just ‘horsin’ around’ I am…
Cheers to the Animals of the World!
We brought our cat, George Washington, from Maryland to Massachusetts to get married with us. What a great cat, was our George.
