What a Surprise! My Trainer & Joey Starbuck on VADA's Purplebook cover!!!
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!!!! 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!!
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 ...
