One More

I hadn't known Michael long but knew him well enough to know that he was a buckin' bronc rider and a pretty good one at that. Assuming he was also a good horseman, I invited him to go horseback riding with me. We took the horses, I let him ride mine, from the stall and off we went. As we were turning around to head back to the barn, I thought I'd better warn him that my horse, Red, liked to run back to the barn on a dead run. I really wasn't worried - after all, he was cowboy wasn't he? Too late - Red took off like a rocket and Mike held on for dear life, losing his hat on the way. He ducked just in time to miss the top of the barn and Red screeched to a stop at his stall. I found out later that he rode broncs but he didn't know how to ride a normal horse. He told me he had taken up bronc riding to get over his fear of horses. Yep, he asked me out again.

Back in the Day

When Mike and I met at the Golden Spike Arena in Ogden and being the shy girl that I was, I mentioned my birthday was coming up in a couple of weeks. When my birthday arrived he showed up with a beautifully wrapped gift. I thought, gol, what's with this guy? He just met me and he's giving me gifts already? I unwrapped the present and it said "Road Apple Candy" on the lid - oh brother, how mushy. When I opened the box, I screamed. Without going into too much detail, there were individually wrapped "horse droppings". Hence the name Road Apples and the beginning of a fun romance. You asked for it!
