Who's that lounging in my chair

Here is the big boy, Pie, practically squeezing into the tackroom before our ride. We don't let horses in our tiny tackroom, but Pie thinks he is a little one. We have a French metal table and chair set in there and I can just imagine Pie happily enjoying tea.

My mare, Penny Lane, sat in a lawn chair at a horse show once, but that is a story for another day...

Everything is a story for another day. This is my second stab at this post. I wrote a huge philosophical essay right here all day and then ended up saving it to draft. Someday, maybe I'll return to it, but for now, the Instagram aesthetic has bit me. Less is more.

On my way to and from the barn all spring and summer, I see this sign. It always makes me laugh - that "Y" is hysterical to me - the whole composition is funny. I finally stopped and took the picture. They were probably wondering what I was doing in their yard.


  1. I can't wait to hear about Penny sitting in the chair! That cutie Pie--peeking in the door. :)
    You know spring is here to stay when the YARD SALE signs go up.

  2. Me too!

    I've written and written and written - pressed save but not publish... maybe I should take a page from your book and post a sweet small happy post in the interim.

    (Also have the curse of the graphic designer. Handmade signs make me bust a gut sometimes. Our recycling center (the dump) has helpful little labels on each dumpster - can's, bottle's, newspaper's... the letters gradually getting smaller and smaller. ;D)

  3. That's a great picture of Pie. Well done.


  4. Pie is just gorgeous. I would love to hear the story of Penny and the lawn chair.

  5. Pie sitting down to tea! How wonderful is that idea? I think very. It would make an excellent children's story too, methinks! I too am very interested in hearing the philosophical ramble! bring it on! This blogger friend loves philosophy!

  6. I So Love That Pie Pie!
    What Would His Tea Of Choice Be...Herbal Or Black, Maybe Green?!
    Mine Tries To Come Into Our Tack Room Too...Not Gonna Happen!

    That Sign, Truly Odd. I've Got One
    I Drive By Weekly,That Makes Me
    Crazy....Then It Changed...Looked
    So Much Better Till...I Realized,
    They Still Misspelled A Certain
    Word! Arg!

    Now I'm Really Wanting To Hear
    Of Penny's Chair Time!
