This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

***I rode a beautiful Palomino horse, with white mane and tail, bareback, along the beach in Mexico.

*** On several occasions, I knew what it felt like to be a victim of a crime.

*** I was part of a first response to someone in an emergency situation.  I held him in my arms and felt his blood stop pumping when he died.

I would like to share this Award with anyone who reads my blog and strives to be the best you can be...

Thank you again Donna, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness...

Congrats on the award!
I'm thinking you must be a good liar, because I can't figure it out. My guess is the Palomino story is a lie!

Palomino horse ride on a beach. The only horses I saw in Mexico were starving. That's my guess?

Just so I will have company if I am wrong I will also guess that the Palomino on the beach is made up....even though it sounds like a cool thing to do. I have mostly seen donkeys on beaches in Mexico.

I'll guess the victim of a crime, only because it said "ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS".

Those who selected the Palomino riding on the beach are correct. It was the lie.
