Stories, Numbah Two: Polo Ponies

It occurs to me, as I start to write these stories, that almost all of them are only in my head. They’ve made me part of who I am; I wish I knew more of my mom and dad’s stories, so I guess these are also really for my girls,  in case they ever wanna know stuff lidis. Maybe it will help them learn more about whodaheck I am.

Stories, Numbah One: Idaho Furnace

Such Beauty!

These two lovely ladies (actually, there was a third, also, but I missed getting a photo of her) came down from the forest, jumped over the pasture fence, and began munching away on the lovely green grass. I quietly walked across the lānai to take a few photos of them.
