Y'all, last weekend I got an unexpected treat. Jane and I headed over to the LA Equestrian Center with Greg and Sigrid and Sherri to celebrate the arrival of 100 very special guests. These mules walked down the length of the LA Aqueduct to commemorate it's 100 year anniversary. Notice I didn't say "celebrate." The Owens Valley got the bad end of that deal.
It ain't often you get to see 100 of any kinda critter together like that, and even though they might'a beena bit shy of 100, it was still something to see. After they showed off their synchronized walking routines, the skinners removed their packs in record time and they got the opportunity to frisk around, roll in the dirt and enjoy some "horseplay." I had such a terrific time watchin' them mules cavort, I'm still smiling. Now I can't wait for Memorial Day weekend for Mule Days in Bishop.
