We have a new addition to the family, her name is Lilly and she is a cute little thing. We have sort of adopted her... OK, it's a horse. We have her on a "free" lease, which means we only have to pay for board, vet and farrier... not so "free", but she and the daughter have bonded already in the short three days they have been together. This horse has a lot of potential.. she has not been ridden much over the past year, but is cantering around the ring (sometimes on the wrong lead) and even jumped a fence or two. My daughter is delighted.

Last weekend AM, Julie and I played tourist in Baltimore and visited the Visionary Art Museum. Visionary means that they have no formal training, and from the descriptions of the artists, many of them had some mental issues, or at least induced some artificially. There were some very interesting exhibits, including a model of the Lusitania made from 190,000 toothpicks. There was also artwork made from matchsticks, telephone wire, and others from recycled junk. Definitely worth a visit if you happen to be in Baltimore. From there we dined at the Rusty Scupper with a nice view of the harbor, then up to the Charles Theater for a movie.

Oh, and I finally got this photo off my iPhone.. its AM and Livingston Taylor from the concert we attended a few weeks back.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day. We will be celebrating that, along with AM and her Dad's birthdays this weekend.
