It’s been a brutal holiday season here in New England. For the past few days, the temperatures have hovered between -3 degrees Fahrenheit and 15 degrees. Feeding the horses has become a balancing act between enough layers to keep warm and enough tactile sensation in my fingers to scoop grain and fasten buckles. Most of the time I have to take a break half way through to sit in the car and warm up.
It doesn’t help that early on in this wintery mix, I slipped on the ice and sprained my right wrist. Badly. So up until recently, I’ve also been wearing a brace. Then, I managed to catch one of the worst colds in recent memory. All in all, I’ve been hibernating and looking for something to make me laugh.
Enter Tracy Ullman as Camilla Parker-Bowles. Love how she describes herself as 16 hands and a bit broad in the withers . . . This cheered me up to no end. Enjoy.
