Weekend
I have a new icon -- it's Duke wearing my parachute! Like it?

I'm watching City Slickers right now. Such a good movie. "What's the secret of life? One thing." One thing. Is it parachuting? hmm... Seems unlikely.

I don't have one thing; I have lots of things. I think that's okay though, to have lots of interests. Keeps life exciting, even if I never focus on one thing enough to be Really Great at it.

I wonder if I should try a cowboy vacation next? Or some other kind of horse-riding vacation.... Horse-riding probably isn't as much work as bike-riding, but horses have more personality.

It's saturday, it's the weekend. Haven't done much with it yet, but it's good to be home. It's nice to relax a bit.

You have a real talent for designing icons!

Horses have a lot of personality! I once taught a thoroughbred to run wind sprints with me. He would never move more than shoulder length ahead of me till I said we were done. Then he took off full speed. Try him for a personal trainer some time.

Virginia, like much of the South, has a lot of red clay that becomes very slippery when it rains.

That same horse would charge down a wet, slippery hill if he saw me in the pasture after a rain storm. He would slam on the brakes about 30 feet away and skid to a halt a few inches from my face. He weighed 1,100 pounds.

Look for a dude ranch around Jackson Hole, Wyoming. While you're there you can usually visit Yellowstone too. I used to spend the winter in Jackson.

It's a neat icon!

The horses are the coolest animals on Earth, both friendly and helpful. The only time I tried to ride a horse, I had to keep my legs twisted outwards, which resulted in bad limping in the next few days.

As for vacation plans, there is always skiing, somewhere in Colorado, or even French Apls :-)

ooh, a skiing vacation -- that's another good idea!
