Horse & Steak

Back in Texas, which means horses -- mine appears to have regressed and now thinks she doesn't have to be ridden -- and steak. The latter's alright, but how to fix the former? Much more riding, daily if possible, and lots of patience. Well worth it, as the offending quadruped's a joy when she's going well -- very fast, powerful and smooth in her gaits. When she's being difficult... different story altogether, but whoever said life'd be easy?

Viz. steak -- I prefer a charcoal Weber, after using a propane thing in Canada. Regardless, dove season's right round the corner and with it the opportunity for some mixed grill and a chance against the avian acrobats.

On a different theme, two Metroplex lesbians tried to enroll their daughter at St. Vincent's Cathedral School in the diocese of Fort Worth, only to be rejected. Now, like it or not, diocesan policy is pretty clear about its trad stance on sexual ethics and St. Vincent's reflects that in its teaching. So why would two people try to enroll their child in a school that's openly against their lifestyle? Surely Jill and Tracey Harrison weren't trying to use their child to make some sort of political capital? I mean, its not as though two people who made the effort to go to Canada in 2006 and get married might be lesbian activists, or anything like that.

Just a thought.

If it wasn't a private school, I'd say it were to get the courts involved in setting precedent.

Right - doesn't seem as though they're trying anything legal, as yet. A PR stunt perhaps?

Your title reminded me of Jayne's line in Firefly: "If wishes were horses we'd all be eatin' steak." I'm kinda glad it wasn't like that at all.

The weather is so good here I was always planning to throw a few steaks on the bbq this afternoon but seeing your post earlier on inspired me to make a few phonecalls and get some friends around too.

Checking back here to leave this comment, bluesun has now got me itching to get the old Firefly DVDs out.

I'm getting worried that I might be easily led :-)

Enjoy the steaks ASE -- and the Firefly (thanks for the reminder Bluesun).
