Awareness of the outside world. Horrible headlines from Indonesia & Korea.

State of the Now, as of 1 November 2022.

Milton is driving.

Rodney is ground-driving.

I am trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I may have left this a little late.

But seriously folks, we are entering the fallow season. The resultant inactivity would be easier to endure had one accomplished anything noteworthy during the non-fallow season.

That was gloomy. What can I say? The end of October was gloomy and exhausting for non-horse-related reasons. I’m having trouble gamboling about the lea.

Rodney picked a poor time to become an acute source of frustration rather than his normal state of chronic frustration and intermittent joy. Of course, Rodney could pull his socks up and become the horse he was hired to be. But I digress. [Rodney Is Sent to the Horse House]


November has a few possibilities. With luck, I will be a perky ray of sunshine next time.

Until next month.

  1. I’m 67 – 68 next month – and I still haven’t figured out what I want to be. Maybe taller?
