Remembering Buddy ...
Sometimes you just have to be there and this was one of those times. You remember that Buddy's best friend was Carroll and Buddy's name is Carroll-now how many Carroll's do you know. Buddy lived in the country and Carroll was a frequent guest. One hot summer day I was sitting in a lawn chair watching the cars go by on Main Street-you know, the street with the stoplight. I heard clomp, clomp and even for Gideon horses coming down Main Street was not an every day sight-pack of dogs maybe but not horses. Well, that's not what turned my giggle box upside down, it was these 2 almost 6 foot guys riding ponies. Riding is an overstatement because they had to hold their feet and legs up to keep them from dragging the payment. It was more of a hippity-hop walk straddling the little pony-poor ponies. They stopped to talk while the ponies grazed our lawn. They said they had ridden them all the way from Buddy's house, which I found hard to believe but...would these two lie? ...Naw BB
