Mr. Tennis and Mr. Ed

While I am bit distracted with other things currently, I thought I would post some filler that I meant to write about last year.


How about a post on Mr. Tennis and his horse, who will be known for our purposes as Mr. Ed? My blog friend (hi Sharon) asked for a photo, and lo and behold, I found a couple. Her hubs was thinking of getting a new sports car -- which I think is a way better idea than a horse -- even though Mr. Ed is kind of cute!




At some point in time last year (unknown to me as to when it actually occurred because someone never informed me), Mr. Tennis took over ownership of a horse. Oh my word - a 25 year old horse! Guess what, I was surprised!! Mr. Tennis has never seemed the horsey type to me! I would think a horse would mess up his khakis and sports coats, but go figure, he jumped right in to horsey-ville! Check out those boots! :)



OK, I admit it, I am not fond of horses. Once when I was a little bitty girl, a horse (pony probably) at a carnival tried to rub me off on the fence, scratching up my leg and scarring me for life -- thus began my dislike/fear of horses, which has continued to this day. Plus, excuse me, but they are smelly, large creatures and mice are often found in horse barns! But if having a horse makes him happy, Maddy and I say, yay -- just don't ask me to clean out any horse barns! :)

This post cracks me up! I still can't believe Mr. Tennis chose a horse, over a sports car, for his mid-life crisis! HA HA! At least Mr. Ed doesn't live with you!

Love it! Jodee filled me in but it was great to hear it straight out of the horses mouth ;)!

My husband is having a midlife crisis building a larger-than-life tree house. I guess our husbands could have chosen worse things. Great post. Super pics!

Jodee is right at least Mr. Ed doesn't live at your house. I grew up on a farm, but cleaning stalls is not a fun pasttime.

Janet, you are too adorable!! And thanks So much for poking me, I have a bad cold and have been too lazy to get online lately. First of all, I think that horse looks beyond sweet and I think you are lucky! haha. Go figure how the spouse always seems to be interested in what you are not. I rode horses for awhile..(until he broke my arm, tail bone, ego etc etc) And John tried it but no cigar. (And he is still pouring over those car ads!) Mr Tennis looks very handsome indeed with his grand stead, ready to m,uck it over to your castle and recue you any day now! hahaha LOVED this post!!
