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.
