Limping Along

Not the horse...
Seems my yearly bout of hip bursitis chose to show up at the nicest time of year!  AGHA
And married life is making me FAT again!  LOL
Nevel isn't looking so slim himself...
I went to visit him
Here is the face that greeted me!
 Word has it that he escaped the pasture while I was over at Mammoth Lakes with other things on my mind!  The message on my phone said:  He is fine...just a "little" dirty!  Uhmmmm, more than a little.
With a face like this one...
I think his new name should be
He is as cute as ever of course!
Hows about a carrot Mr. Swampy?
Mr Swampy had to give the stink eye to a fellow pasture mate first before even THINKING about imbibing in fresh carrots and apples...

"Awwww you HAVE to go...?"

Look at him....just look at him!  How can you leave a FACE like THAT???

Newly Wed

Ok, so recently I posted the story about my engagement.  The plan was to get married in 2015
But I don't particularly care for odd numbers...
We had a trip planned to Mammoth Lakes, CA (Eastern Sierra) and
At the last moment we decided to get married while there.
The weather was spectacular as only the Eastern Sierra can be
Blue Skies, 68 degrees-not a cloud to be seen
And here we have the NEWLYWEDS 10/10/2014!!!
We were the only ones in the courthouse 
except for 2 clerks
3 Security agents
the Judge
My sparkly shoes set off the alarm system!  :)
In the afternoon we met up with a professional photographer
I had a REAL BRIDAL dress then-
My groom couldn't believe I was putting one on AFTER the wedding!  LOL
He said
"I can't believe the lengths you women go to...."
The photographer sent me a few photos yesterday...the best won't be seen for a month or so...
A stroll down a beautiful aspen lined lane on the June Lake Loop
 And another in a meadow nearby
 The following day we hiked to Rainbow Falls after gazing at the Devils Post pile
 and of course I was thinking how great it would be to ride a horse there
There was even a hitching post!
Spectacular fall color abounded just about every where

 Silver Lake on the June Lake Loop
 Mono Lake
 Mono Lake inhabitant
It was  a fabulous and spiritual weekend
A great start to our life together...
I will post some pony pictures...
can't leave poor Nevel out!
