proof, and other things

I think I have proof that it was Dusty who let himself out of the corral back in October.

Here's how the gate looked when I went out to feed this morning:

And here's how it looks when it's latched, which is how I left it last night:

Does that look like a guilty face to you? Yes, yes it does:

So it's December, I'm officially freaking out, there's kind of a lot of things in various aspects of life all catching up to me right now that are weighing pretty heavy on my mind. Plus deadlines! Three projects, three weeks. I can do this.

I'm finally starting to feel better, this has been a pretty bad cold that I've had. I did end up sick on Thanksgiving but I went anyway, just warned everyone not to hug me. ;-)

I had a really fun day on Friday, other than feeling crappy. Spent the day with BV and we went on a long drive up in the El Dorado National Forest in search of good places to take the horses for some trail riding. We found some really nice areas that would be fun to ride, but of course now it's getting to be the time of year where that won't be too practical up in the mountains, so that may wait til spring, we'll see. It was really pretty, I didn't have my camera with me because I didn't know we were doing that. Note to self, take camera everywhere. :-)

Anyone know of good local day trip or overnight rides that aren't way up in the high country? And aren't on bike trails?

Sadly, the Bears and Boulders ride will not be happening this year (that is the week at JC's). Circumstances have not worked out in our favor this year. This is a bummer. :-(

Alrighty, I gotta get to work. Clock's a-tickin'.

That is a hoot, my daughter had a horse that opened everything. When we let her graze the yard, she would come to the front door and try to turn the knob...she let all of our horses out of several gates, and we spent a few mornings chasing horses down the road. It's a very strange dilemma until you find the culprit.
Happy Holidays!
