Brilliant at the Basics

I was going through this excellent list by the incomparable Nicholas Bate and flashed a big smile at "Learn how to ride a horse."

Check. I acquired a rough grasp of that skill years ago in Virginia.

There were even times when the horse and I made it over the fence together.

A jumper. How thrilling. You'd like Houston right now. It is looking good...instead of droopy gangsta jeans, the Wranglers are in town for our famous Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. I'm proud when the trail riders stop traffic. (My horse was named Shorty.)

Texas Leigh,

I like to catch the Maricopa County Livestock Show if only to see all of the future farmers and ranchers.

They give me faith in the future of the country.
