But I like women; I like women a great deal. If women always came with a horse, like a telephone bill or credit card bill always comes with a payment envelope, Earth would be my idea of what Heaven must surely be like.
Are you a woman? Are you sitting on a horse? If you nickered "Yes" twice, then by the gods I love you. I want to marry you and your horse. You can have me for a mere song: just whinny, and I'll come trotting over.
Yes, a song. I sing, constantly. I am always singing, usually out loud; if you find me at a moment when a song is not coming from my lips, you can bet even money that there is a song going on in my head. I'm the darling of karaoke night!
When I'm riding a horse, I am also singing. If there is a horse with a woman next to me, or a woman with a horse next to me, while I am riding, then I am not only singing, but also grinning with bliss.
Do you sing? Do you sing to your horse? If yes, I love you already: I don't even need to meet you, nor your horse--- I already love you.
o) Yes, I cried when Flicka was attacked by the cougar; yes, I cried when War Horse got caught in the barbed wire. Well okay, I didn't *ACTUALLY* cry, but I considered doing so.
o) I love science including astronomy, evolution and evolutionary theory, the physics behind human-caused climate change, space-time, and quantum mechanics. I am a long-time member of the Skeptics Society.
o) Past jobs included computer programmer, boat delivery, and environmental service supervisor at a long-term health care facility. I currently work as a ranch hand on a cattle ranch in the canyon lands of northern New Mexico.
o) I have sailed the South Pacific, North Pacific, Hawaii, and through the Panama Canal, on to the Grand Cayman Islands, Cuba, and the Florida Keys.
o) I detest the taste of alcohol. I hate the stuff. But I also like bluegrass music and karaoke night at The Cowgirl Bar and Grill in Santa Fe. Wee hee!
o) I am strong, fit, hyper-active," and hard to keep up with. I walk like a Tennessee Walker (long, fast gait), and I jump over obstacles like Kiss Me Not (that's a famous horse).
o) The only "men's magazine" / "literature" I'm interested in is Horse & Rider Magazine.
o) I write. My current project is "Ten Horses for Snow Hare."
