What more could a girl want for Christmas?..

December 1, 2006

Besides two insanely gorgeous men, a warm fire, beautiful view of Ashland below and a disco tree-trimming extravaganza! Charley and Nate were kind enough to share their tree trimming experience with me. Last year Christmas was a bit of a wash after Picollo’s surgery. Twas nice to get to hang with my mom in Texas … Read More

Bye Bye Miss American Pie… The day the music died.

November 28, 2006

I awaken to oodles of snow sinking from the darkened sky and an unwelcomed phone call from Eric letting me know Nicole passed last night. The rabbi was presently there. Eric would phone me later to connect. One minute someone is there and the next second they can be gone but God did she have … Read More

Winter Wonderland

November 27, 2006

During the holidays, Ashland turns into a little gingerbread house of a town with it’s festival of lights. Every evening, the whole downtown is engulfed in a show of lights outlining Ashland’s favorite hot spots. This morning I woke with hopes of getting to see Nicole, getting myself settled for a bit, having an incredible … Read More

Once upon a star-ee night

November 22, 2006

So I’m still here in Ashland and still spending a good portion of my evenings at my long time home away from home, The Black Sheep. Over the years, I’ve probably spent more time out at the Sheep than anywhere else in Ashland. I’m greeted by a few new faces that could likely become a … Read More

The stocking were hung by the chimney with care

November 21, 2006

Well there are not really stockings (see photo) and it’s not even December yet but there IS a fireplace and Picollo WAS enjoying it so it just seems like such an “it’s almost Christmas” kind of scene that I couldn’t resist snapping a cute pict of him. The re-scheduling has been hectic but things are … Read More

It’s a rough life…

November 13, 2006

So yes, yes, yes… It’s a rough life but somebody has to do it! Joewell is absolutely loving his enormous 16 by 16 padded stall. He can hear the trickling of the water fountain out front rather than having a waterfall coming INTO his stall from a broken rain guard. Ha! Yes it’s chilly in … Read More

Ashland or bust!

November 7, 2006

It was a long and EXTREMELY wet drive down from the Seattle area on the 6th of November. Dr. John was a bit late in arriving to finish Joewell’s final paperwork so Morgan and I got a later start than planned. BUT!.. at least we were able to leave the farm as it was flooding … Read More

Hello world!

November 5, 2006

So I’ve been meaning to start a blog for a while now anyway and several of the Donida crew asked me for regular updates of my travels and training with Joewell so there you have it. Not quite sure where I’m going with this so I’m just planning to journalize travels, horses, picollo and life … Read More
