Outside Circle by Jan Swan Wood: Wyoming Horse Racing, FREE roughstock school, Buck and Ball, clinics, jackpots

t’s been quite a week. I had a major overhaul on my back on the 16th, so I was a week in the hospital with that. I’m staying with family until I can take care of myself again, and I’m sure thanksful for them and for their care. It’s been a rough one. But, every day is better, I’m looking off toward that horizon where life is good again.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving with a slightly smaller gathering of the clan than usual. There will only be 14 around the table, but everyone is healthy and I’m on the mend, so much to be thankful for.
