Drama Queen Toki
So, dear Toki.  He was sold to a lady who wanted him for her daughters to ride.  Shortly after the first 4-H show, Toki became *her* riding horse and she bought two more Fjords for her girls.  I can't blame her for stealing him and he's very happy. As evidenced by this photo.  She was out taking pictures of her other horses and Toki came up to the fence and *posed* for her.

Such a drama queen.

The View from Up Here
We went horseback riding in  . .  . Carnardo ?  I've tried spelling it every which way and Google Maps is always like: 'I have no idea what you're going for.  Where?!'  It's north of Wanaka.  Not the greatest trekking experience I ever had. We were on rough old OTT Standardbreds that they had taught NOT to gait, they had mouths like concrete and zero interest in what you had to say. And every time we came up to a really nice view, the guide was like: Okay, it's time to trot!  It's time to canter! Bitch, I want to take pictures! 

My foot rolled in the stirrup during one of these little jaunts and when I tried to stop my horse so I could fix it, the bastard bucked me off.

Land's End
I know New Zealand goes further south than Dunedin, but in the direction I'm facing there's nothing out there but Antarctica. This is the Albatross Reserve.

Roaring Meg
A river supposedly named after a woman who screamed bloody murder as she was carried across it.  They run hydro electric off of it.  Note the blue water.  Yes, it's a freshwater river.

Just an odd observation coming to a head.

When I was active in the Metalocalypse fandom, there were some 'observations' that made me beat my head against a wall.

'I hate it when they draw Toki's facial hair like it's just attached to his face!'

*slams head against brick*

"What the fuck do you think facial hair IS?!  You've never touched a male you weren't related to, have you?"

And there were the reasons they thought Skwisgaar/Toki was canon:

"They were sitting next to each other in X episode and their legs were touching."

"When they saw each other in X episode they smiled."

"They were worried about each other in X episode."

Me: Okay, now I love ships and I won't deny anyone their kink, but you guys do know that men can experience friendship as well, right?

I belong to a group on Facebook that's devoted to Thorin Oakenshield. On Thursdays, they have 'Bagginshield Thursday' where they post pictures that suggest Thorin and Bilbo had a romantic relationship. A Thursday or two ago, they posted a few pictures that consisted of the two characters standing next to each other and a video that showed Richard Armitage and Martin Freeman in costume walking across a field. Richard Armitage stepped closer to Martin Freeman and said something.  If you weren't gagging for an excuse to have these two shagging, it would look like he was stepping closer so he could be heard clearly.  

Now I love Bagginshield, and I have nothing against Skwisski, but shit -- this kind of stuff would be classified as casual friendship if the characters were female. Are men not allowed to show the faintest fondness for another male unless they're family or want to fuck them?

That's toxic masculinity right there.

Guys, you can be bros.  You can be friends, you can be best buds, you can be chums,  you can even be brothers from another mother.  You can show emotion and feel, and hurst and yearn and nothing about that makes you gay.

Age has its rewards, accumulated wisdom, rational priorities, memories safe in the treasury of the years, inviolate and precious.  The adventure of life continues with the past guiding one's way to the future, and even the painful memories of mistakes inoculates one against facile errors.  One sees and does new things, one enjoys and recalls old things fondly--and the world, and you, journey around the son.  Better yet, others who prize you are here to travel with you, and they rejoice in your existence, celebrating that by wishing you a Happy Birthday!
