Yep, I sure did use a pun in the title today. Why not? Anyway, there are some little sprouts popping up in the garden now; mainly lettuce and squash. Have to admit, I was a little worried about things washing away or getting too wet over the weekend (with all the rain we had on … More Lettuce look at the new sproutlings
I gotta say, I’ve been pretty lucky in life when it comes to opportunities, and quick on my feet to jump on them. That was the case two years ago, in early August of 2018. I saw a chance to take a columnist/opinions position at the UT Daily Beacon, the University of Tennessee’s editorially independent … More The end of an era
Recently (as in April 4th), Hank and I tried a bit of Western Dressage through the online “show” Dressage Show Online. Yesterday, April 8th, we received our scores for the two tests we filmed and submitted. And wouldn’t you know it, we didn’t do half bad. In the few days between submitting and getting results … More A goal and a score
I have to admit, my motivation has been low these past few weeks. Imagine the perceived “senioritis” that happens to upperclassmen – now times that by a hundred.

I guess first I should start on Saturday, when I spent nearly 7 hours at the barn getting ready for and filming 13 classes/tests for three different virtual horse shows. (The filming only took about 3 hours, and that includes … More A waiting game
While I’m still waiting for the weekend to come so I can get the manure I need, I figured this would be a good opportunity for me to try learning something new in the horse world: Western Dressage. This is something I’ve been wanting to try with Hank for the past few years, although we’ve … More Even more horsing around
Since I finished the frame yesterday evening, the only thing that really remains now is getting a load or two of manure (which can’t really happen until the weekend). I realize that I’m pretty lucky in that I have easy access to this type of fertilizer, and I know where it came from and how … More Horsing around – virtually
