    Default Double Header...Sort of ...

    We had an incredible day today, the likes of which I'm sure is very rare. At 5:30AM today I recieved a call that my new grandaughter, Abigail had arrived, while I was getting ready to run my 3 year old in the 2nd series of Master test. Not only did we smack the 2nd seires, but the 3rd as well! And we got to spend several hours with the newborn, thanks to the great friends and judges at the Colonial Hunt test who allowed us to move up and out to see Abigail.
    I don't usually brag out here but this was one day in my life that will really stand out as memorable! New baby and my first Master pass....how sweet is that!

    Congrats on both the new granddaughter and the Master pass!!!

    Love that little one lots now.....they grow up and become teenagers before you know it!!

    My granddaughter, who just turned 15 last Tuesday, called me this morning from the 2 week riding camp we sent her and her horse to for her birthday. She was so excited during the call and couldn't get the words out quick enough to tell me how well she and her horse have been doing. Seems like just a couple of years ago, she was just a toddler!!!

    Big congrats on both.

    thanks to the great friends and judges at the Colonial Hunt test who allowed us to move up and out to see Abigail.

    I am finding more and more of these great friends and people the longer I play these games. Maybe Abigail will be running under some of them later in life.
