Texas Football…and the photo shoot

 Football in Texas is a big deal. Not only Professional but College and High School alike. One thing they all have in common is they have a mascot. The University of Texas has a long horned steer that is paraded on to the field. Baylor University has a real bear but for obvious reasons it is not brought into the stadium. If you have ever been to a Texas Tech University football game you know the excitement when their mascot. The Masked Rider

charges out on a beautiful a horse ahead of the football players.
So why am I telling you this? Well my sister Polly, the creative one that I have spoken of on here before among other things is a photographer. She was ask to do a photo shoot for this little lady. She and her girlfriends started sending birthday announcements to each other when they turned 75 doing unlikely things... Like sitting on a motorcycle, etc.
Being a huge Texas Tech football fan, this was an obvious choice. 

Now mind you she didn’t want to actually get on the horse…which was a rental…but she sure got a kick posing with it!

Oh did I mention this card is for her 90th!. I sure hope that if I make ninety I am doing fun and silly things like this! How about you?


Thanks for the pictures Polly.



  1. Oh wow, this brought a smile to my face. I am hoping the same thing! How fun!

  2. Dearest Janey,
    Wow, that is quite an accomplishment for posing like this, with a horse, for your NINETIETH!
    It is encouraging to all of us that there are many with a lot of spunk.

  3. Woman power, we are the strongest!

  4. She looks a great lady for 90years of age - full of spirit and get-up-and go - bravo for her.
