To Everything There is a Season…

  The year is winding down and already next year is winding up. Normally this time of year is quiet and reflective for me. I complain about the lack of light and the cold and I sit by the fire with Smokie at my feet reading, writing and trying to stay warm. This year has been a bit different. We’ve had unseasonably warm and sunny days with a disturbing lack of moisture. This has made for excellent riding weather but raises huge concerns about drought conditions come spring. We have been busy with all the normal holiday parades and...

It’s Better to Have Loved and … Won

  It’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved before, may be a true statement however it’s my experience it’s even better if you don’t have to lose. I have a heart bigger than Texas when it comes to animals, kids and lost causes. I willingly spend my time and resources helping, healing and loving anything and everything that falls on rough times. This is frequently thankless work that doesn’t always have a happy ending. Unfortunately love and persistence can’t fix everything and...
