We hoped all is well with you and proceeded.

My choice as hostess goes to the wonderfully balanced rendition of
Garlic. I can really hear the rustling of those outer dry leaves.

This was a fun contest - I thank all who submitted photos and participated.

TAKE IT AWAY, ALFREDO.
My hearty congratulations to you for the spectacular and scary Three Graces.

Trump Picks El Chapo to Run D.E.A. reveals Andy Borowitz





NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Just days after picking Betsy DeVos to run the Department of Education, President-elect Donald Trump has tapped another wealthy outsider by naming Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán to head the Drug Enforcement Administration.

In an official statement, Trump said that El Chapo’s “tremendous success in the private sector” showed that he has what it takes to “shake things up” at the D.E.A.

Trump’s appointment of the former drug lord surprised many in Washington, in no small part because acrimony between the two allegedly prompted El Chapo, in 2015, to put a hundred-million-dollar bounty on Trump’s head.

But, appearing on CNN, the Trump surrogate Kellyanne Conway said that the selection of El Chapo should surprise no one. “Mr. Trump always said that he would surround himself with the best people,” she said.

When asked why Trump had readily offered a job to El Chapo while still mulling the fate of another former adversary, Mitt Romney, Conway said, “El Chapo might not have voted for Mr. Trump, but that’s because he’s Mexican and in jail, and Mitt Romney is neither.”

Meeting Painting Freedom today. A magnificent thoroughbred stallion - I even have a video

A friend of mine bought him from a person in Montana, and he arrived about 25 min from my house having traversed to the East Coast in order to bring his unusual colors and special beauty to horses here.
I know nothing about horses but my friend does, she single handedly runs a huge stable on 56 acres and I got to be the first visitor to see him.
He was so happy to get to play and roll around that I was unable to get any really good shots because of all the dust he raised. What a beauty he is.

I’ll show you the road leading to the stable, and then the view from the front door, and then you meet him.

















Now meet Lola, the 6 week old Jack Russell Terrier who lives there as well



And here is the video, it was taken in his old home in Montana
