  THANKS FOR YOUR HELP
I'd like to say thank you to all who are responding to our blogs.You will never know how much it means to us.It used to be that when we entered the site, the first thing we did was to see if there had been any donations made.Not the case anymore!As soon as a computer gets turned on,we all wait to see if we have any new comments.It's kind of funny actually.We read them out loud and enjoy them together.
This past week went a little smoother for us.Even though the land wasn't so easy to cross in places,closer to the end of the week it was much more condusive for the horse and rider.I think as we go along ,the desert riding will allow us to make more mileage each day.
It turns out that Wanda is a wonderful cook and has really foiled my diet plan.She even made lemon icebox pie from scratch with lemons I picked right off the tree.Not to mention the cornbread and meatloaf and all the other wonderful things she makes.
Andi has been dubbed "THE COFFEE FAIRY"Every morning she makes coffee and serves it before we are even out of bed.(I know that's how she gets us up!)She is always ready to help.
Edie ,well, Edie is Edie.She wakes up working and goes to sleep that way.For those of you who know her,you are probably laughing but it's true.She and Whiskey are really bonding now.She says"I love that boy." and you can hear it in her voice.He has learned that she takes good care of him and is an expert scratcher.
As for me,I do what I can to make the day a good one.Somedays I work a little harder at it than others.I think about my girls alot and hope they know how much I love and miss them.My Abbeville family is always on my mind.I wonder how Mamma is holding up ,knowing that if I ask ,she will say she's fine.To Julie,Doug ,and Jacob,I love you with all my heart and appriciate all that you do.
Enough of that...
As we get into the desert,we are starting to see all the lizards and jack rabbits.No snakes yet but I'm sure it won't be long.It's 87 degrees today but very cool in the shade.
That's all for now.Please keep the e-mails and comments coming.
Love to all,
Marla

How fortunate you are to have a coffee fairy on your trip! I'm glad everything is going well, Naja is still fine here, too.
 
G'morning Gals,
Got to work this morning with google map in hand to show co-worker how far you've traveled; from Ventura to Victorville. I was just glad you weren't still in high traffic areas and unprepared for Annette's burst of laughter asking, "...HOW MANY YEARS IS IT GOING TO TAKE THEM???" With that, I couldn't help but laugh with her and through tears of uncontrollable laughter she continued commenting, "...They'll be drawing Social Security when they get back to SC...they'll need more than one tube of Bengay...!" Now please don't be offended, she was not laughing AT you. Being a non-horse person, she just couldn't help herself. She's sure now, with this post, you'll come to give her a whoopin', but I told her she has plenty of time to run and hide, lol.
Hope you have a great day!
Peg

Did mom bring her deep fryer!? My mothers deep fried chicken is insane!! After this trip is over - everyone of you will go through withdrawal from my mother's cooking! LOL!! It's OK, she has plenty of chickens and criters in her yard to feed an army! Stop by anytime!
