Negative? Me?

I do believe I blame my blogging drought on the fact that I gave up cable news for Lent, and have continued with this quest ever since. Granted, I pretty much have no clue what's going on in the world, and some may say that's a bit irresponsible but hey, my blood pressure is down and my spirits are up. In time, this may change....watching cable news and my blood pressure.

The downside is, I have nothing to write about. I've learned that my blog was fueled mainly by news reports that I could complain about, but hey, it was such fun!

Anyway, here are a few photos...just to hold you over until I can find what direction this blog will be heading in in the future.

As of now, it's pretty much dead in the water. Pun intended.

When we were recently visiting Zion National Park, we stayed at a place called Zion Mountain Ranch. Oh, I highly recommend both if you find yourself in Utah someday. Unbeknownst to me the ranch offers horseback trail rides....if I had known that I would have ran the other way, because well, me and horses don't normally get along. Don't get me wrong, I love those big beasts, but that's the problem, they are BIG BEASTS! Ok, I'm scared of them, alright?

But, because I am a GREAT husband, I treated my wife to a ride through the neighboring canyon on horse back. Pictured below are me and my wife,  one person is right at home in the saddle, the other is not. I'll let you decide who you think should be in the saddle.



 I think we were driving toward Flagstaff, AZ when we came across this rainbow.


And this........
well, that's just stupid.


I do believe tomorrow is Hump Day.
Enjoy

Ummm yeah, you don't look like a natural. On the other hand, your wife has a big smile on her face. Good for you, being a sport for her.

How fun to go riding and then see a beautiful rainbow. Now that dog, humm? Good for you for giving up cable. The negativity just isn't good for our health.

I'm a bit scared of horses too. BUT, I'm even more scared of puggles wearing visors!!!
