Monday, August 24, 2020 – Birthday Ride on Apollo

Hi Sweetie!
Well, I’ve had my first birthday since 1985 without you, without anyone today really. I know we never made a big deal out of holidays, so I’m not making a big deal out of this one, either. I did some computer work in the morning, mostly rearranging park reservations, then finally saddled up Apollo for a 7 mile ride on a couple of trails I hadn’t done here yet. He did pretty well, considering some of the climbs were pretty steep today. We managed to only lose his boot once, and got it put back on right away, not losing it again for the whole trip thank goodness. There was one long stretch along a road, and I put Lola’s leash on because she tends to get too far ahead and out in the road, but she stayed perfectly beside me once the leash was on. No cars came by anyway, but better safe than sorry. Got back, rinsed him off, then let him eat some clover for awhile, while I smacked a couple dozen horseflies as they landed on him. Eventually made a nice surf and turf dinner with shrimp and steak, rice and asparagus, then settled down for a usual evening. It was an enjoyable day, and that’s all I can ask for! Heading off to shower and bed, so good night, darlin’! Love you!
