I have a very good friend and horse riding buddy, Jan, whose 76th birthday will be in the spring. She is no longer riding so her daughter, who is also a very good friend and riding buddy of mine, has an idea for her mother.
We have been going through our photo albums, gathering pictures of Jan, her horses and all the good times we’ve had on horseback. We’ve also been writing down stories and memories that we’ve laughed about all these years with the idea of making a scrapbook – a memory book of Jan’s riding days. What a wonderful idea!
Not only will this give Jan something to go back to and laugh over for a long time, it also gives us the opportunity to reminisce and enjoy again all those times. We plan on getting together at Jan’s house sometime this month – it’s too cold to ride anyway! – to compile the scrapbook. Among the three of us we will come up with many, many stories and pictures and I have a feeling that this book will be very large.
I plan on riding for many years to come, but maybe it would be a good idea to start my scrapbook now.
