Went to see Aunt Happy. She was in a great mood. She talked about how much she and Don liked to go to Chico Hot Springs in Montana. (It also ranks as one of our favorite places.) One time while they were there Don signed them up to take a horseback ride up into the mountains. He did that without talking to Happy first. She was not happy. But she was willing to give it a try because Don was so excited about it. They gave her one of the horses that the children rode because they knew she had no experience.
They headed out and Don was having a great time. Happy’s horse went a little ways, figured out that Happy had no idea what she was doing, turned her head back to look up at Happy and then went back to the barn. The thing that upset Happy the most was that Don didn’t even know she was missing.
We just cracked up listening to her tell this story.
Well, the second one was just as funny if not more so. At Chico they offer the most marvelous hot rock massages. Don, once again without asking her, signed both of them up for massages.
When they got there they separated them into the women and men’s areas. Happy looked around the corner into the room and there were all these women sitting in a hot tub – Naked! She was horrified. She told the attendant that she had a bathing suit and the attendant told her that no one ever wore a suite. There was no way she was going to take all her clothes off and sit around with naked women. So she went back out into the lobby and waited for Don to finish. He came out and couldn’t believe that she hadn’t had her massage. His was wonderful.
We had a fun visit and spent a lot of time laughing.
I wouldn't get in a hot tub with a bunch of naked women either...maybe just one, but not a bunch.ReplyDelete
Great stories, you should prod her for more.
Oh my goodness - that is so hilarious!! Especially when he didn't even know she was missing. ROFL!!!ReplyDelete
I think many many people have funny stories like that if we just take the time to listen. I don't know when the naked women story took place, but I can just imagine my mother walking out just like she did!ReplyDelete
There is a lot of great stories out there all we have to do is sit and listen.ReplyDelete
HAHaaaaa ... well? the title alone got me over here away from m'eating... hahaa.... oh, so glad to read good stuff about Aunt Happy... no... women area too critical... men are just normally stunned that women are in the nude and after their brain registers THAT ... yer gone.ReplyDelete
or something like that...
yes, we women to take up area.. some of us more than others... but what I MEANT to type ... was women are tooooo critical...haDelete
Always enjoy reading 'Aunt Happy' stories.ReplyDelete
That was a great story...ReplyDelete
Maybe we should get Aunt Happy and Dad together.ReplyDelete
I laughed so hard. The title says Horses and Naked Woman and the next line is "Aunt Happy" yikes!ReplyDelete
That's so funny! Sounds like Dan was hoot, and made Happy's live happier, for sure. But I'm not sure I'd want to sit around in a hot tub with a bunch of naked women, either. When I did the mud baths in Napa, CA, we each had our own tub next to each other, then soaked in a hot tub together. Anyway, I'll bet this post will get a TON of hits with that title! :)ReplyDelete
Great stories from Aunt Happy. BeckiReplyDelete
Aunt Happy is a hoot! I love people who can tell a good story! There's a place in the Seattle area that is a spa just for women. You might walk around in a bathrobe but not for long. I understand Aunt Happy's leaving the hot tub!ReplyDelete
Too funny! I can just picture Aunt Happy's face when confronted with all those neeked gals... :c)ReplyDelete
What great stories. It sounds like her Don was just as much of a firecracker as she is. They must have had quite a time together.ReplyDelete
What a story! I can picture her on the horse that walked with her back to the barn! I have seen horses do the funniest things when they are aware the rider is no match! Laugh.ReplyDelete
And the spa story - my oh my!!
I love to listen to Mike's Dad's stories--Aunt Happy's are just as good!ReplyDelete
How funny! Aunt Happy should be Aunt Funny as you certainly have a lot of good stories from her and about her. As they say, we're laughing with her and not at her.ReplyDelete
What a funny lady... Bet she could entertain you for hours!!!!! Love it. She reminded me of all of our visits to George's parents when they were alive... We had some 'interesting' conversations with them also--as you can imagine... ha haReplyDelete
It sounds like Aunt Happy misses her man but that's not all bad. :)ReplyDelete
I can sympathize with Happy and her horse. Being an inexperienced horse rider I have had the same thing happen to me when my horse took off for the stable.ReplyDelete
I am always a little happier after hearing aunt happy stories.ReplyDelete
