Somebody Else

Turn up your volume for the video link please:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_FTk7qGerM


So I was in the barn the other night, cleaning stalls 

and prepping food for the horses and Ms. Morgan 

Sophia Beasley came out of her stall 

for the first time (sort of) and into the aisle. The 

previous night she came out and quickly went 

back in. Well last night she was ready to explore. 

After over a month of near hibernation, only 

getting up from sleep; to eat, poop/pee and to 

get treats or be brushed she was coming out. 

She explored the barn, while the horses were 

outside, and found many tasty morsels of food 

all around. So where am I going with all this?  

Simply a story about our pig?  Nope...

Well, a few short months ago I was someone else. 

No I haven't changed as a person but my life, 

our life sure has. Who would have thought that 

I would be taking care of horses and coaxing a 

pig out of her stall! It's a pretty cool life...and boy 

am I ready for summer! Done with the cold.

The video above was taken at various points 

during the last week. It's of the boys as they 

enter the outdoor arena which is usually 

followed by running around and a bit of playful 

roughhousing, like a couple of brothers. 

Sometimes they really go wild. Wish I had gotten 

film of that. The second part of the video is of 

Morgan "vacuuming" the floor of the barn. All of 

it is so much fun to watch and yes I am in part, 

somebody else. A good thing.

The first song that is playing, Somebody Else, 

is from the perfect film, Crazy Heart, that is out 

now starring Jeff Bridges as a washed up, alcoholic 

country singer touring the country by himself. It is 

stunning and that is Jeff Bridges singing. He is a 

lock for the best actor oscar.  Take that to the 

bank! The second song is called I Don't Know, 

also from the movie. Pick up the soundtrack

It too is perfect! Get the deluxe edition...

Eric you've given me a love for animals that I didn't realized existed, starting with Traveler, the Cats, (too many to name) Czar, Midnight, and even a Vietnamese pig who would have ever thought. I must say I have a bond with Wilco after hearing his cries for help after getting himself stuck between the walls in the barn. Never thought that would happen with myself and a cat, that proves anything is possible. Love Dad
