Catching Up

First, thank you, everyone, for all the feedback on Voltaire saddles! I am now interested more than ever in trying one out.

I haven’t been on my horse since Friday, and on Friday we only walked around the property because of the sloggy footing everywhere. The rings are good to go today, so I’m hoping to ride after work. Eli will be bonkers, but I don’t mind riding through that for a day or two before really getting back work.

I’m catching up on reading and posting today, and also catching up at work. Over the weekend, I ate enough to feed four people for a week! If you want to eat a lot and eat well, may I suggest New Orleans? Even better, I didn’t miss the rain date for the show I had planned to do this month because the rain date was also rained out, and the show rescheduled for November!

The rest of this post is New Orleans picture spam. (If you are a vegetarian for moral reasons, you may wish to avert your eyes.)

Deliciousness! At Galatoire's. Eat there if you can. So fancy the waiter puts your napkin in your lap for you.

Bourbon Street. We only walked on it for a block to get to Galatoire's. Not my thing AT ALL. Smelly drunk people everywhere.
