Those are my little buddies - Jack and Jenny.  I was in Texas earlier this month on my favorite ranch - the Silver Spur Guest Ranch in Bandera.  What a great time we had relaxing and riding and just hanging out.  There's nothing better than riding horses in the Hill Country to refresh my soul.  It was in the high 80's and since back here in New York winter is closing in quick - I enjoyed every second of being in capris and flipflops for a few more days.

One thing I truly love about the Silver Spur is that the cell service is spotty in fact I can't get a signal at all unless I'm up by the main entrance on the road a good 1/4 mile from the main lodge.  Its nice sometimes to shut out the world.  I warned the ranch manager that I just may show up some day hiding from my real life.  Seriously, though everyone should have a place where they can escape and completely relax.  I hope you have somewhere like the Silver Spur in your world.

But if you don't, I hear rumors that The Wild Rose Press is having its annual retreat there next October.  Maybe I'll see you there.
