The Ladies Ride!   1 comment

Boarder Jennifer sent me a picture she took yesterday.  It’s of a Birthday Ride, for our boarder Cathy.  Here they are, lined up along the river, with Birthday Girl Cathy on the left.  It’s a pretty good-sized group, for these days; at least eight.  Notice the pipe protruding from the bank behind them — one of several that dumped waste water from the oil fields in the Bad Old Days.

I enjoyed this especially, because it reminded me of the ladies’ rides Billy’s mother Irma used to head up.  They would have averaged about seventy — in age, not number.  I’m sure these ladies are mere spring chickens by comparison!

They got their ride in during the morning hours, which was a good thing.  The afternoon was marked by thunderstorms, with a pretty good lightning show.  Some places in the mountains got over an inch, but we only got a good shower.  It cleaned out the air, though, and this morning it was clear as crystal.

There are thunderstorms in the mountains again today.  A flash flood advisory is in effect again, and it says that places in the desert and near Lake Isabella have gotten over two inches today.  Here, though, it’s only muggy — so far.  There are supposed to be yet more storms tomorrow, due to tropical storm Dolores.

It’s all welcome — except maybe in the flash flood areas.

  1. Actually, we were nine. Barbara seems to be missing from the photo on the little Paint, Wade. She might be behind the young willow in the center of the photo. It was a really nice occasion and ride.
