The Neighbor's Horses

Life in Christian County, Kentucky...



Neighbor's horses

Have I ever mentioned the deal I have with the neighbor? He feeds and exercises the horses, provides a barn and pasture for them, keeps up the fences and assumes all other responsibilities of ownership -- and I admire them as I drive by. It works out nicely.

I wish the sky in this photo had a little color, but it was a gray day. A bit of light was shining across the pasture as some heavy dark clouds moved in from the west. After a few rain sprinkles, the clouds moved on and it was more humid than ever.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
