Yesterday, Sunday, Sept 9th, marked the season finale of the “2018 Cowgirl Couture Summer Series” that is held each year at the horse arena at the Genesee County Fairgrounds.  The series is run by Amie Schneider and staff.

Silver and Gold

Well, I met an old man walkin’ down the street
His clothes were torn and tattered

And I stopped to help him
And lend him a hand

Blogging from my phone!

This is the first time I’ve actually tried blogging from my phone! So basically, this is just a test!

I’m using the WordPress app for Android, and it seems to work pretty good!

I remember back when I was MUCH MUCH younger, laying in bed, Staring at the window, and listening to the radio – feeling devastated and heartbroken over a lost love, that strangely I can’t even remember now who it was – so many years later.. When you’re young and heartbroken, you feel like the whole world is truly ending for sure….
