Pippin Post from the Past: It was just the tiniest of bucks...

I'm having a lazy, sleepy, "I don't know what to write!" kinda day. I really shouldn't feel that way. The sun is out. The temperatures are glorious. I am heading out to water trees and gardens. Life is good. But... my mind is in neutral. So, I'll repost a "Pippin Post from the Past", written two years ago.

what is that thing that keeps tapping me on my 
gluteus gelatinous maximus? 
trot - kick - hop - buck - kick - buck!


  1. I would tell Pippin that I am sure it was muscle. . .not fat, on a Haffie? Never! Cute post! I have been missing his antics :)

  2. Awwe, two years ago - and still cute! Thanks for posting a Haffie fix!

  3. I know what your problem is! You rode the other day, and today you didn't! Loved the post

Despite my belief (certainly flawed) that I am invincible and irreplaceable, I find that alas, I am not.  Despite my consistently taking pre...
