Saddle Up!

Nelson NV
June 3, 2017

Every time I go to Nelson NV, I find something new to shoot. I swear the time before last, this array of saddles didn’t exist. And when I saw it, I thought of my friend Janet, whom I’ve never met. Can you be friends with someone you’ve never met? Well, if you can’t, then I believe there wouldn’t be any WordPress, or Facebook. Heck, if I was on Twitter, I could be friends with the President of the United States. So, Janet, for better or worse, I call you my friend!

I could have taken a photo of a dozen or so horses for you- knowing how much you love horses. But anybody can find horses to take a picture of. I got you the saddles instead.

Anyway, there are no horses in Nelson.

Prompts and Challenges

What’s your strongest sense? A constant sense of confusion follows wherever I am. Indoors or out, home, office, and all points in between. The only time I am free of such befuddlement (I love that word) is when I am asleep. Though I must admit, the dreams I remember make very little sense.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) Funny, but, in my youth I had a company that sold animation artwork on the second hand market to collectors and my nickname was Doc- probably because no one thought it a good idea to call me Dopey. It does not instill any degree of trust. But I do think any of those names would suit me.

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be? I do prefer my present age, only because the real alternative would then be death. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not afraid of death. I just do not prefer it. As Benjamin Franklin has stated, “Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75.” Or take this, from Woody Allen. “I’m not afraid to die. I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”

List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy.  [Remember:  This is SYW where even your dreams can become reality.] Be careful what you wish for. Retirement is looking damn good right now on this Monday morning full of problems. But, let’s just see that list for fun: nature photographer, writer. That’s it. Both solitary professions.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Saturday I went out to Nelson NV, about the millionth time I’ve been out there, but I was alone and didn’t want to stray too far from home in 104 degree temperature. I’ve heard that the Springs Preserve here in Las Vegas has recreated a 1905 boomtown that I want to get out to next week.

Thanks, Cee, for your challenges each week!
