A brilliant idea?




I'm happy to report that Desi is doing so much better. Things are moving smoothly and he is eating with his usual vigor. Thanks to all of my saddle pards for your well wishes! 

But....
My little friend Allison is still in a coma. It's amazing the outpouring of love and prayer that is coming her way! She can't help but get better with all those good thoughts  swirling around in the atmosphere! 
The Horsemen's Club that I am a part of is going to sponsor a Benefit Playday for her in May. I'm thinking fun and easy games on horseback that all her friends can come out and play, and also a couple of Carnival type games too- like a ping pong throw (prize is a fish)a bean bag toss, a dunk tank...( can you guys think of any more?) that even non-horsey folks can play.
More on this later....

two legged race, with one of each kids legs tied to the others..I have seen a game wwhere they nail two sets of old shoes to a board,and the kids have to team up and walk from point A to point B..kind of like on ski's but together!

Hope your friend is better soon, glad Desi is.

How 'bout the bust a balloon with dart game. Or a cake walk. The benefits we've taken part in, it seems people will pay lots for pies and cakes.

At one of our 4H Fun Fairs, i saw a cute "toss game". There was a short section of picket fence (About 4 feet long) and it was propped up. On the rail of the fence were some stuffed cats, about 8 inches in size. The contestants threw old shoes at the cats on the fence and won a prize when they knocked one of the cats from the fence. Prayers for Allison.

Glad Desi is better - sending jingles for your friend Allison - I have a similar friend - my friend Kelly's daughter Cheyenne. Every time you mention Allison in a coma I think of Cheyenne and my heart just goes out to you.

Keeping her in my prayers at night - have faith she will pull through...
