Bye, Bye, Miss America Pie
Thanks for the details of where you live. It's fun for us to hear about the blues music and B.B.King. One of my sons likes to dance the Blues. There is quite a national network of blues social dancing with lesson clinics. Since his horse is here with me, and he is in Washington state for grad school, this is one of the things he does to have some active social life. He does have a small group of rider friends, so he can muck a stall in exchange for some saddle time.
I have started reading about the cotton industry. Wiki is pretty brief, but I'm getting more of a feel for it. That's really flat country- except where it drops for a water area. Is the Mississippi in levees above the ground level? Does the cotton prefer dry soil or is it like rice and want some wet, too?
Do you get tornadoes as well as the big tropical storms?
And the most important question, What's the footing like?:winkgrin::lol:
My gallant DH, Saint Carl, is from Lubbock, Texas. That's the cotton seed oil capital of the world. His Dad, "HoneyDad", was the manager of the largest elevator there. When we went to visit him, I first saw cotton growing. It is super dry and arid there, so I wonder if they grow a different kind of cotton. Lubbock is also the hometown of Buddy Holly and Texas Tech.
Since you have a computer, you can hit the net and order the things that you want, like the memory foam mattress pad. Then your BF won't have to go to Walmart.:) I learned to type when my friends got me my first laptop and showed me how to shop. It was soo nice to have packages show up on the door step, without the agony of moving or asking someone else. Gave a bit of a sense of control over my destiny, and accomplishment. Plus the pleasure of something to look forward to. Then I discovered tack shopping online...:uhoh:
Thinking Body, Dancing Mind
How is this week going?
I found this book important to my recovery. While I'm sure there are more advanced sports psychology books, this one was critical for me for the process of dealing with major injury.
It has many of the elements that I learned from the Le Goff training. (Without the negative parts of his personal style)
Can you have a P.T. session to learn how to maneuver and restart your neural pathways? You can do a lot by thinking exactly a correct movement. Whether or not you actually physically move, the pathway is activated. By riding in your head, like the preparation of each step and then the feel of the step, you will be able to fire the neural pathway memories to the muscles when you actually use them.
