Mindyjourney and I did our annual trash pickup today, from our road to the main highway, about a mile and a half segment. We collected one large bag of the usual items: empty water bottles, beer cans, fast food containers and the like. Mindyjourney did the hard work of picking up the trash, I drove the UTV vehicle.
I had a full knee replacement surgery several weeks ago. A very painful, but necessary part of recovery is to participate in physical therapy, something I have been doing at the local clinic twice a week.
As this is Caring Rose Week, my wife purchased a dozen roses for me to donate to the clinic personnel that impart their healing torture upon my knee. They were very appreciative!
My wife Mindy and I sponsor a wild horse we've named “Imagine” at the Hot Springs SD wild horse sanctuary, a beautiful 14000 acre wildlife refuge in the southern Black Hills. The 750 horses here are free to roam the property with little human intervention. As the summers are dry and winters harsh, they do require additional feed, hay, and water sources that are funded by sponsors such as we are. I gift this sponsorship to Mindy annually on her birthday. As we are sponsoring a horse, we were allowed to give the horse a name.
Pictured below is “Imagine” when she was about 5 months old, and now about 14 months old. Isn't she beautiful!
