A DAY THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY...

Happy Anniversary Pat and Gordon
From Tooloose

December 7, 1986.
Gordon chose it because being from Hawaii he knew he'd always be able to remember the date. And yes...he wrote the invitation as a day that will live in infamy and encouraged the guests to come in costume...which many did.
As an added enticement he added a line on the invitation saying that at least two of the Beatles or Henry Kissinger would attend.
Alas.
They did not.
But our horses Belle and Gofer had a great time. And we DID make the Everett Herald so there ya go.
Oh and my horse Belle (show name Pretty in Pink) and I also did the hunters at the Evergreen Classic. So Weddings and Hunters. What a gal.

Ah the eighties...
Interestingly enough my next book takes place in the eighties...
So Gordon and I will be holoholo (on vacation) this weekend.
And Tooloose will be in charge of ORION.
Uh oh.

Can't wait to read the next book. The 80s were a great time!

Happy Anniversary! A horseback wedding looks romantic. I used to ride back then, and I'm writing about the 80's too. Ah, nostalgia.

Wow, I would have loved to have your wedding! My first date with my husband was on horseback in a blizzard.

We'll be celebrating 25 years in August.

Happy anniversary. You are the first person I've come across to share the same anniversary as my husband and I. And we lived in Hawaii!

Happy Anniversary - a little late. Call me when you get to town.

Awesome Pat! You are quite a lady! If only the horses could fit on the boat!

Happy Anniversary.

You can't even know how thrilled I was to see your comment on my blog!!

Thank you for taking the time!
I truly loved Lottery. It was such a special story.

I'm sorry, but I regret to inform you that Tooloose was last seen sailing out of the harbor. It's rumored he's going to France where his endless prologues are understood and appreciated.

Happy Anniversary! I haven't been by in such a LONG time! I hope all is well. Where does one vacation when one LIVES IN HAWAII!?!?!?!?

I was just on Trish Ryan's site and was brag-commenting about how much I LOVED Lottery, and then I hadn't even realized YOU had commented before I did! LOL!

Happy Anniversary! And I love the photos. Speaking of dates, I got married on 8-8-08. If I forget that one, I'm in big trouble.

Happy belated anniversary! Wow, was that dress a Gunne Saxe by Jessica McClintock, per chance?

I horsed around on my first date, does that count? ;)
