NO, NOT TEXAS! FALKLAND, BC

 

We left Piccadilly Mall parking lot on Friday morning.

After a short drive, we arrived at the ranch of our friends Cynthia and Ross.  They are country through and through – Ross used to bull-ride, Cynthia, barrel-raced.  They now have a few businesses and have handed most of the cowboying over to their children and grandchildren.

They have a very nice country home they built themselves.  Cynthia has a flair for decorating and their home is furnished with beautiful antiques.

Last night we were treated to home grown beef.  Unbelievable!  I could not believe that I managed to eat the whole thing.

There are animals everywhere.  Dogs and puppies, cats and kittens.  (Sue – this dog Serena could be Tucker’s girlfriend – smart dog).  The horses kept their distance and that was a good thing.  The last time we visited, Parker chased the horses, until they chased him and they almost got him.  It was terrifying for all three of us.  Now Parker is scared of horses (quite a few other things too).

Just wanted to share this picture.  We had no idea Pace Arrow had been around this long.  Talk about vintage.

You have the best friends and relatives. You two get to park in the neatest places.

Pool Parker...he looks like he is just lying there wishing he could join in the play. Darn those horses.

Glad Parker learned to leave the horses alone so he's safe. That would be very scary. 32 days!!! Yippee.
