Computer Blues

My laptop has been infected with a virus that prohibits me from accessing I can't even leave comments on other's blogger accounts. I believe its a "redirect virus." Any ideas on how to eradicate it will be greatly appreciated. So far there's been no response from Google (who "owns" Gmail and blogger)

Meanwhile, I took a six hour riding clinic last Saturday that left me somewhat battered and bruised. I don't know how cowboys can ride all day long. My lady bits felt hammered so either I have an incorrect seat or they need to toughen up. I had my last lesson at my old stable on Tuesday and will have my first one at the new barn next Monday.

There is an air show this weekend. Sadly, one of the planes practicing for the event crashed Wednesday evening and all four aboard were killed. Apparently the show will still go on; I have mixed feelings.

I'm still reading blogs - just have been forced to keep my opinions to myself. Stop applauding.

Things Are Looking Up

Checked out a new stable to take lessons at and think I've found a good prospect. The only drawback is that I was told that they don't take their horses on trail rides because they're all "show horses." But that's okay because I'm not competent enough to hit the trails yet anyway and it will be nice to have a place to keep on improving my skills, such as they are. Who knows what next summer will bring?

The stable where I've been taking lessons is closing its doors as of August 1. All the horses have to find new places to board. I have to find a new place to keep riding (and, of course, it's all about me) There are two other places in town that I will check out or maybe start commuting to the Valley - a much longer trip so more time and gas money involved. Gah! Just when I find a hobby I love...

Tense much?

My friend's new puppy chillin' on my lap.
