Ride On

It was a pretty normal Saturday morning in this bucolic rural haven; strong coffee on the front porch and Morning Prayer, straight from the '28 BCP and thank you very much. But no sooner had I finished the Office than I heard the clatter of shod hooves and there was a column of horsemen moving briskly down the road, just a block off my position.

Some of the riders peeled off from the main body of horse and passed by the Compound. Why, what was it all about? I have no idea but the concept's good, get on your horse and canter about the town, which is something I've been wanting to do for a while. After all, this is Texas.

In other news, Melania's been turning heads in Europe, more of that on Monday, another "man" is giving birth to a child and there's been some sort of awfulness in a Vatican apartment and at St. Paul's, Knightsbridge.

Ride on,

On his way to confession,
on a horse.
Father has installed
a ride up window,
After all it's Texas...

You need a ferret armored car to confront the mounted threat.

Pretty horsies. Even nicer is it looks like families - not just any families, but black families with what appears to be fathers. I'm impressed and cheered up by the sight.

The pandering to homosexuals by the Church is just more proof that the devil is working overtime. How come we don't have special Masses to celebrate liars, adulterers, thieves, and murderers? And, jeepers - no parades or whole months set aside to wallow in our pride? I'm bummed!

Well done, Brig!

LSP said...

That, LL, is an excellent point.

It was a pretty novel sight, Adrienne, and I liked it. Unlike, say, the recent skulduggery in the church, which is appalling.
