Post Script

Or maybe addendum. Or just a couple of notes regarding my last blog post.

A few years back, when Nico was in his first year of competition, my dad took him to a rodeo in Canada. The calves were fresh Longhorns, streaking fast. "Geez," one of the other ropers grumbled. "What does this stock contractor think we're riding, Secretariat?" And my dad said, "Well, now that you mention it..."

And for those of you who were curious about my maiden name, there's this, courtesy of my younger sister. Eisenach, Germany. Home of Johann Sebastion Bach and the place where Martin Luther translated the bible into German. Wouldn't you know it, the castle in my namesake town is called Wartburg?
