Wahoo! Altadena Fete -- Free, October 19th, Everyone Welcome



Fete? You bet. Because I had to look up the word "fete" to make sure, and yes, we have a celebration on tap, a festival. Horse-riding demos, refreshments, and a few short words from big people.

Mostly, you'll oooh and ahhh when some accomplished riders put their horses through their Western, Dressage, 5-gaited, and Charro paces.

And here's the thing: I never threw a party before, ever. You know that, else you would have been invited. And some of you folks live in PA, Canada, Oz, Brazil, and New Yaaawk, so you're excused; but surely I must have a few local readers. And to you I say, please come. Because this was my idea, and if you don't show up, I'll look stupid, and drive home with 50 pounds of guacamole in the trunk of my car.

Mark your calendar -- Saturday, 10/19, from 2pm to 4pm, at Altadena Stables, 3064 Ridgeview Drive. That's near where Altadena Drive dead-ends into JPL, and it's just a walk, one block south.

More info, enticements, tomorrow.

  1. Looks like a "grande" event! Unfortunately, I live north of Oz; the commute is a bit long.
    You have such a following,I'm sure attendance will shine.
    (and they'll probably eat all of the guacamole)

  6. Have a great wing ding, only with guacamole and horses, not wings and rock.

    Hope it is a big success.

  7. Well dang! I suppose you chose to throw your party when I was out of town just so you wouldn't have to deal with an unruly inappropriate guest. One who would know all the political implications of horse pucky [thank you Molly Ivens who must be roaring from the grave watching the US Congress outdo the Texas Leg]. Here's to happy memories of Vandy and forget all the other equine back views in the landscape.

  12. Eeeeep! Guacamole keeps for just so long! I hope you have a great turn out. I would send Oreos again but - well, I guess they might go with guacamole...then again they might not.

  21. Good lord, I was gonna ask you to send me some guacamole, but that line is very long. I suppose guac doesn't exactly travel well either. Well, try to have a good time without me, but it won't be the same without me dressaging all over the place.
