Let us ride together, Blowing mane and hair, Careless of the weather, Miles ahead of care, Ring of hoof and snaffle, Swing of waist and hip, Trotting down the twisted road With the world let slip. Anonymous riding song.
Along for the ride:

All I want for Christmas...
Hooray for the brave Cornish Lads who would face rocky beaches and cold seas to pose for a calendar to raise money for a friend, injured in a car crash. This post started out as a light-hearted sharing of some beautiful scenery from my home region in Cornwall, England. Upon reading about what these boys are doing to try to help a friend I though they should get all the help and encouragement I could muster. So click on the Surf Bums link,below, read about them and spread the word.

To order a calendar email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Guys are trying to get a website set up to take orders but, due to Darren's accident taking place late in the year and the limited time to photograph and produce the calendars, they are under the gun. The cost per calendar with exchange rates and shipping are roughly $15-$20
Even if you don't order, they would surely appreciate a "Well Done" for what they are trying to do.
If you read the article linked above you will see that Darren has asked that any funds raised be shared with injured soldiers.
If I were a tree, I would be a London Plane. I am gregarious but enjoy solitude. I am English in my heart and soul, but still have room for other nations. I have lived in six countries and picked up a French husband along the way. We have a wonderful, kind, strong-minded daughter who has become a "Human of whom to be proud". I am a magnet for the lost. I foster collies (and collie cousins and the occasional, accidental, cat or crow). Those I have saved have saved me in return. I notice the world around me and often talk to strangers. Traveling alone is interesting, liberating and fulfilling. I am good at most things that I undertake but have few formal qualifications. I am able to have and treasure friends with whom I disagree about almost everything. My life is not over. Who knows where I am headed?
A ponyism is one of Life's Truths perceived from the perspective of an Effing Pony: - Life's a Bluff! - Those who aspire to make their mark on this world must expect to scrape some skin on the walls of experience. - The greatest value of money is as the currency of Hope.
- To be an Ass or an Asset, that is the question?
-Selective memory is but the first step on the path to magical thinking.
-Not all Baggage comes with wheels. -When your hero is a horse you are less likely to be disappointed than were he a human.
-Unfortunately, great wealth does not always equate with class.
-A dick, surrounded by puppies, remains a dick. -What better antidote to evil than kittens? -Any time you have something heavy, ready to drop, your cat will sit right below and look up at you.
