This song is beautiful, sad and sends chills up your spine.

You can't wait for miracles. Life is to be lived.

My aunt always said:
Better live life burning both ends of the candle than not to have lived at all.

I am not sure I agree with her. I know I didn't as a girl.
I was not one to venture out to get burned.
I wanted to live a little longer even if I had to fight to do it.

I loved my life living it my way, sharing adventures with the man I loved.
Nothing could defeat us, as long as we were together.

We were both children of the world, free spirits, bohemians, survivors
living in a free world, that to both of us ,
is and always will be,
a miracle.

So much out there to expand your lungs in.

What did the horse say to whinnie the pooh while whatching his t.v. show?

A: I wish I could hear you whinnie.

There was a famous jockey that never lost a race.When asked how he achieved this,he replied, I whisper in the horse's ear: Roses are red, violets are blue. Horses that lose are made into glue.

Q: What is the best type of story to tell a runaway horse?
A: A tale of WHOA

I had a near death experience that has changed me forever. The other day I went horsesback riding. Everything was going fine until the horse started bouncing out of control. I tried with all my might to hang on, but was thrown off. Just when things could not possibly get worse, my foot gets caught in the stirrup. When this happened, I fell head first to the ground. My head continued to bounce harder as the horse did not stop or even slow down. Just as I was giving up hope and losing consciousness, the Walmart manager came and unplugged it. Thank Goodness for heroes!

An out-of-towner accidently drives his car into a deep ditch on the side of a country road. Luckily a farmer happened by with his big old horse named Benny. The man asked for help. The farmer said Benny could pull his car out. So he backed Benny up and hitched Benny to the man's car bumper. Then he yelled, "Pull, Nellie, pull." Benny didn't move. Then he yelled, "Come on, pull Ranger." Still, Benny didn't move. Then he yelled really loud, "Now pull, Fred, pull hard." Benny just stood. Then the farmer nonchalantly said, "Okay, Benny, pull." Benny pulled the car out of the ditch. The man was very appreciative but curious. He asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times. The farmer said, "Oh, Benny is blind, and if he thought he was the only one pulling he wouldn't even try."


"Some horses are so polite that when they come to a fence, they stop and let you go over first."

Three race horses stood in their stalls. One said to other others: "I ran 20 races and I won 15 of them!" he bragged. The next said with a snort, "Well, I ran 30 races and won 25 of them!" Then the third horse spoke up proudly, "Yeah, I ran 41 races and won 39 of them!" This seemed to settle the topic when the horses noticed a Greyhound outside their stalls. The Greyhound said, "I ran 100 races and I won 99 of them." The horses looked at each other in amazement and one gasped, "Wow!
A talking greyhound!"

Miracles! We see one every day. :)

Live!!! Love !!! Laugh !!

Horsing around is a good way to start the day. Even if it's the middle of the night.

I pretty much agree with you about burning the candle at both ends. But there is no doubt that I grin from ear-to-ear when you horse around.
