September 3, 2009: The Best Thing You Can Do When It's Raining, Is To Let It Rain

This was the day of rain. Hardcore, Thunderstorm, can’t hardly see, Rain. Not a good day for horses or horseback riding. However, if you are trying to find the silver lining, it’s a PERFECT day for SHOPPING! And that is what we did. We drove out to Lincoln, NE and found the true, small town USA gas pump. I felt like I was in Mayberry and I half expected to see Barney Fife arresting some old lady for jaywalking.

The Fort is a Tack and Western Store in Lincoln. Store probably isn’t an accurate word… a better word might be… huge? Millions of boots, billions of jeans! Everything you could possibly need or imagine was here. Everything, except a pair of rhinestone jeans that made my ass look fabulous.

That night Linda, Tom and I had dinner at a Mexican Restaurant with their horse friends, Jane (Rio’s owner), Doug, Brenda and Alex. We talked horse and Brenda mentioned that Missouri was not that far away. We couldn’t…. Could we?
