An Easter Gift for the BiggunsBy Kate_miller
So said my friend, Janet. Cowgirl extraordinaire and surrogate Mom to my 2 horses, who are boarded at her stables.
What's the best time to buy a better camera? Why the day before you need it, of course! And, yesterday I was sorely missing that crystal ball.
We've been having hard times. Incessant rains causing problems for all of us. Soil so saturated that small lakes have cropped up in the middle of my garden.
The biggest members of our extended family were suffering mightily. Feet sinking deep into the quicksand-like mud. Their large corrals just not large enough to manage this rainy mess.
