The Problem I was thinking about friends that I haven't seen in a long time and I remembered my buddy Vernard. He is a very smart guy. He was the valedictorian of his class in college.

Blue My best horse story happened when I took a bunch of kids to Young Life camp.  It was our day to ride but they had too many riders. That meant that the horse that nobody wanted to ride was being saddled up. I knew all of the Horse wranglers and they all decided that it would be a good idea to put me on this horse. The horse's name was "Blue". They told me the only problem with Blue was that I had to go through the last gate last because he was going to sprint... Read More
