Kelly’s smile is natural, warm and welcoming. She is a strong and beautiful woman. We see it often at the Bog, a bar/roadhouse with the best burgers around, a cozy bar and a loud jukebox. Some people played Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush,” and I asked Maria to dance. We got up and danced to it, a sweet, slow country song, it was a special moment, they don’t usually dance at the Bog, we inspired another couple to get up and dance with us.
We don’t often get to dance up here, but we both love it when we get to do it, it is, I have learned, important to be open and intimate, to touch, to show love, make love, to never take love for granted or leave it unspoken for long. Tonight, the Bog (Foggy Notions is it’s full name) became one of our favorite places. We went there to talk about our days, we had so many things to catch up on. Maria talked about her riding lesson on Chloe, her pony, I told her about Paul Moshimers trip up here tomorrow, he is staying over and on Wednesday, he and I and Ken Norman, our farrier are all going to Vermont so Paul can take Sarge, a blind horse, to Blue-Star, where he will live and get some medical treatment.
I want to see the horse, but I am urging Blue-Star to consider a gofundme page to raise money for Sarge’s care, I gather it will be expensive. He is, I gather, totally blind in one eye and partially impaired in the other. More to come.
The lyrics were perfect for me:
“I gotta girl crush, hate to admit it but
I gotta heart rush, ain’t slowin down
I got it real ba, want everything she has,
That smile and the midnight laugh she’s givin’ you now.”
“Girl Crush” by Little Big Town.
