Mother’s Day, Encore


In the history of my children’s lives, I have never been home for Mother’s Day.  This saves much angst on their part, I’m sure: no breakfasts in bed, happy mother's day by carroll.maryno flowers, no phone calls.

I belong to a group of women Sage Hens by Anne Rowlison Martinez(fifty to be exact) that takes off promptly each Mother’s Day for six days of trail riding.  Some use tentsTenting at Finse II by Espen Lodden some use campers, all have fun.  The age range is from forty to ninety-eight (she gave up riding last year, but still has a little something at nightly cocktailsCocktails by Cayusa.  This was my twentieth year attending.
