It’s All About the Ride

With all the horse talk in the HORSIN’ AROUND GIVEAWAY, I wonder how many folks realize my book has little to do with them. Oh, sure, they’re in the story, but the ride in Give the Lady a Ride is on the back of a bull.

The first bull Patricia rides is tame breeder and since she’s a horsewoman anyway, it isn’t much of a challenge–a little uncomfortable, maybe, but manageable. She doesn’t have trouble until Talon matches her up with a wild steer. That one really tests her. But her decision to ride shows her adventurous spirit.

Recently, I was asked what I really wanted to do that I haven’t already done. Oh goodness, I can fill a book! My abbreviated list started with swimming with dolphins and buddy-jumping from a plane, and ended with experiencing Jerusalem with English-speaking locals. For some reason, I left out zip-lining through a rain forest.

What about you?

    Good morning, Linda.

    My bucket list doesn’t include anything dangerous. I’ve foolishly galloped a stallion bareback across the dirt runways of my daddy’s country airport. I’ve flown up-side-down, done stalls, and loop-de-loops with Daddy. I’ve been behind the controls of a plane when I had no clue what I was doing, and I’ve wrestled a mountain lion. As a teenager, I drove a car to the beach (consistantly) that had no (zilch-nada-zero) brakes with a bunch of other teenagers (If Mother had known . . . ) I’m just thankful that the good Lord didn’t take me when He had the chance. 🙂

    My bucket list contains peaceful things, like one more trip to Cape Cod, another squirrel family to raise, going dancing with my husband (he’s dragging his feet on that one). I could go on and on . . . but you can see, wrestling with the demons in my books is all the dangerous excitement I want!

    Good post. Love you!

    Lynne

    Wow–you have lived a full, vivacious life! My claim to fame is catching the largest red snapper on a salt-water fishing trip, unless you consider hanging off the side of a galloping horse exciting. 😀

    Wow, after hearing Lynne’s stories, I feel pretty boring, LOL. I have lead a sheltered life. I do enjoy speed boating and bouncing over the waves. I always thought I would like to parachute from a plane….who knows…maybe someday I will! I think this is why I love to read. I can live through others stories…Angie

  4. I’ve had a lot of excitment in my life already, and I now look for more sedate persuits, something that no longer getst the adrenaline pumping. Mine is all pumped out, and not on fun things. Great post! I love reading your blog, Linda. (And please, don’t include me in the drawing, which I think has already been done anyway. I just like visiting!)
