Looking for a Unique Gift

I don't have a green thumb and I don't like to garden. But I receive daily emails from - the magic of words, language and quotes. I don't subscribe to many listservs but I do enjoy this one - sometimes I know the words like topiary but most times I don't. Yesterday's word topiary got me thinking if I liked gardening I would not only have a huge vegetable garden but some sort of topiary menagerie of animals. The menagerie would include a herd of horses, a giraffe, elephants - so many critters that word would spread through the Southwest - people would want to come visit from miles around and the media would call often and want to do stories about my topiary! But no topiary for OneCowgirl!

Farewell to Summer

I had many a great ride in two countries wearing that huge "sombrero" as seen in the banner photos above. Girlfriend Fredrica the professional photographer referred to as my Martha Stewart hat - it was time to say goodbye!
