You know I love our ranch. But I gotta tell you, I had a great day away. Our friend Adwyn invited us to a chamber music recital to benefit Japan relief efforts. The concert will be held twice, so David will go to the Friday evening concert. Saturday was my turn - we're switching off horse duties - so off I went on a long drive north.
Carol, Adwyn and Don
Here's an abbreviated version of the program -
Ludwig van Beethoven Streichtrio, Opus 3
Paul Hindemith Trio, Opus 34 No. 1, Fugue
Robert Schumann Klavierquartett Es-dur, Opus 47
I enjoyed every minute of it, but the Schumann was a real thrill.
We've been friends with Adwyn a long time. David met Adwyn walking the cross country course way back when we were young. There weren't many guys eventing in this area then. David was showing Skipjack and Adwyn was showing Squeek. It was instant male bonding, and we've been the best of friends ever since.
David and Skipjack
These days, the guys have brother-horses. David's Reggie (Wingate) and Adwyn's Wulf (Ware) were both sired by Wendepunkt.
Hey wait a minute...I started out telling you about my day away, and here we are, back at the ranch! Now how did that happen...
