Yep–Misty and I rode in some horseshows. But those shows weren’t like the seriously competitive horse shows I’ve seen recently. Anyone could enter, and in many classes, anyone could win, any horse could win. Misty and I chalked up quite a few ribbons and trophies, even though neither of us could have been considered “fancy.” We loved our hometown Hamilton Horse Show. And when we wanted to venture to nearby small towns, like Breckenridge, Gallatin, Kearny, Cameron, Chillicothe, Bethany, and others, Mr. Winslow, who ran the feed store, drove Misty and me in his big truck.

I don’t remember where this photo was taken or if I won a ribbon. But I doubt it. It looks like I’m riding bareback . . . .

    I have a small book of poetry which belonged to your mother which I picked up at junk store years ago when I lived in Cameron. Would you like to have it? Ran you down thru my insurance agent in Hamilton. Mary Sandy

      This is so amazing and so kind of you! I would absolutely love to have the book of poetry. I’ll happily pay the cost and postage, and I’d be delighted to send you a copy of my novel about my parents during the war. The book released last year and contains many of the letters they wrote each other while both served overseas in different countries. If you’d like a copy, please be sure to include your address. I know Mom had a close friend whose last name was Sandy. Are you related? Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness. Dandi Dandi Daley Mackall/ 1254 Tupelo Lane, West Salem, OH 44287
