What a shock ... what a wonderful shock!!!!

I'm on my way home from my Saturday job (feed store, doncha know.) And as usual, when arriving home, I stop the car at my driveway entrance, and check the mail box.

Hmmmmm. What's this package? I don't usually get packages... so I rip it open. It's the Virginia Dressage Association's 2010 Purplebook.

OMGiH!!!! :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: IT's MY TRAINER (Tina Baglione) AND JOEY STARBUCK ON THE COVER!!! HOLY SMOKES! Yup, inside on the first page, it says "Scene from a 2009 VADA/Nova Show at Morven Park. Photocourtey of: Pics of You and John Robinson." Yes, we were there, and actually, I remember the photo.

You can't really see her face... but it's a wonderful shot...plus she has a second place ribbon on her boot.

OK, maybe I'm just silly, but what a treat for Miss Tina ... and Mr. Joey. And of course, me. I'm so proud of them I could just bust ...

Thank you VADA, for a lovely surprise. And yes, I will be rejoining this year!! :lol:

Now, I'm 99.99999% sure it's them,... but if the photographer comes along and says "That's not them" I WILL be mortified ... :lol:

And THANKS everyone. Yes a I am a very very proud Mom!! :lol: Going to bed,... more later.

Not such a big deal, but my boy is on the cover of the Utah Dressage Society Omnibus this year (I'm there too, or at least some of me is, but pictures of us are never about me...)

I know I'm probably being goofy,... but they do work so very hard. It's not a huge thing, but it sure makes my heart go bumpbumpbump for them! :lol:

lol! I was wondering if that was Tina and Joey. Since I couldn't see Tina's face I wasn't quiet sure.

Anna :D

Hey Anna,

I know ... there's no mistaken that little tiny body of hers ... I'm so pea-green with envy! :lol:

I like how Joey's looking one way, and Tina's looking the other!!! :lol:

Thank you for your kind comments...they really do mean so much. ;)
