Blogger Meet-Up

What really frustrated me the most at the Ed Wright clinic was the fact that my mind was trying to do what Ed was telling me to do and my body...

Well, I wasn't incredibly successful at getting my body to respond.

Muscle memory just took over!

But before I go there, I got to tell you that one of our fellow bloggers lives right close to Moriarty and we got to meet up...
(Yea buddy, I got some sun. Sure didn't think I would have needed sunscreen this late in the year.)
On Saturday evening, Fantastyk Voyage came up to have supper with me. It's a good thing too, cause after I had my little 'cry' and finished taking care of horses, I met my hubby at the only bar in Moriarty and was fixing to get waist-deep in some Crown and Coke. LOL.

Heeeyyyy...Ed did tell me he thought I needed to show up about 1/2 drunk the next day so I loosened up a bit. I was just following his instructions. ;-)

We had an awesome visit that evening. She came out to the clinic the next afternoon (and thanks to her, there are some nice pictures) and then on Sunday evening I went to her place for some homemade pizza and got to meet her darling crew. As I have noticed before when meeting fellow bloggers that I've been reading for awhile, it's like catching up with an old friend vs. meeting someone for the first time.

My hubby was doing his own thing. He had met up with some of his club brothers in Albuquerque and spent the day riding with them. I think everyone thought we were a bit of an odd couple because we drove that far and then I did my thing while the hubby did his. But that is how we roll.

Love the photo. Happy smiling faces! Hey, when you get your horses running the way you want them, shoot for entering the Calgary Stampede- huge payday!$10,000 per go round, and $100,000 winner take all on Showdown Sunday. Now that's a worthy goal! Plus, you'd have your own fan section of Canadian bloggers!

I better get on the ball then or we will all be old ladies before then. Heehee

Maybe next year, I'll grab a friend and just come watch. That would be much better for meeting and visiting. ;-)

How cool is that! Still got the sun and some heat here. Got my red neck reburnt last weekend in fact. Can't wait to see the pics from the clinic.

You're both on the list of bloggers I'd like to meet :)

SO know what you mean about muscle memory... Ed gave me crap about that too. I'd do something in my head the way he wanted it but not with my body, he'd give me crap and I'd say that I was trying to retrain myself lol
