Gorgeous sunrise.

 Up and at 'um.
 Pretty crispy for Phoebe and Gucci...so the coats.....
 Barb helped with chores and once again we fed the horses where the sun was shining.

Gary went into a Home and Garden Show and I got the house set up for drumming this afternoon.
At 1:30 some pals showed up to visit the horses.  They were visiting family in the area.
 Clyde (who was one of my students many years ago),  and two of his children brought up a bag of apples and were game for going out in the paddock.
 What I would give to do a serious photo shoot with these beautiful children.  Maybe when they come back in two weeks to watch their grandfather perform in Sankofa.
 The oldest daughter has hit it off with Abbe since they met last year.
 Of course the apples were a big hit.
 Gucci and Phoebe received a lot of lovin'.

 Drumming was extra fun today.  We added bells, shakers and the bass drum I made.  A good turnout and we really loved getting in a groove once we knew what we were doing.

Here's a short video of how we got started.
Did not even think about making dinner...  While I did chores, Gary drove to Bergen where there is a great pizza/deli called Ralph & Rosies.
 The ponies were tucked in by 6:45....
 Right when the sun was going down.
Goodnight Masterpiece.  Goodnight Abbe.  Goodnight Berlin.  Goodnight Mustafa. 
Goodnight John Boy!

 Here's the dinner.  A nice big salad and two pieces of pizza made with sweet sauce.  Are you drooling yet?  It's some of the best around.  We've had our cal quota for the day.
Night all.
