Before Margaret could finish her story the sky turned black and one of those wild desert storms blew up....it started to thunder and lightning flashed around us....I have to admit I was scared. We all rushed to our tents as fast as we could, I was glad of CC's company even though he perched on my head.
Early the next morning we got up to the smell of kibble roasting on the camp-fire, Hurley had been up and around for hours and prepared a gourmet meal for us with his usual enthusiasm. The desert makes for big appetites (except for Margaret who is such a fussy eater) and we dug in with gusto.
After breakfast Tansy and I got ready for our first riding lesson. Tansy donned her Gucci leathers and I put on my doggles. We did not get off to a good start as Tansy insisted on riding side-saddle...she said no self respecting female would straddle a saddle and gave Margaret a disgusted look. Wrexel said as long as she could hold on he didn't care...phew, that was close.
We are all going on a short test ride. This is how we formed our Harley Gang; Wrexel and CC leading; Margaret driving (in chaps and astride) and Tansy (side-saddle) next; Femme La Flamme with Hurley; Weezle @ with Dusty and Weezle * and me bringing up the rear.
We are going out into the desert for a few hours. Pray for good weather and no unfortunate happenings!!!
