Country Tyme Living

Hi! I'm Jake!

My girlfriend, Callie is an avid equestrian. Every time I come to Asheville to visit her, I can count on driving her to the country at least twice a week so she can ride her horse, Harbor Star. It costs me about $15 per week in gas- but that's a small price to pay to see her happy.

We're actually at the farm right now. She is prepping Harbor for their ride. Callie's roommate's dog, Titan, is running around, sniffing & peeing on everything.

Anyway, Callie & Titan are having fun on the farm. Here are 3 things I'm thankful for while I'm sitting in the country:

1. It's oh so quiet.
It's so quiet here that I can't hear anybody, & nobody can hear me. Huh. I could pretty much do whatever I want out here & nobody could stop me. Let me know if you ever want to take a Jake ride out to the country!

The country is peaceful & free. It's a great place to let your mind wander & think of all the possibilities.  You can read, imagine, write, or just look.  Plus, it's a peaceful place to shoot guns. Note: I'm not supposed to shoot while Callie rides. Harbor's a bucker!

The quiet helps me clear my brain. I'm thankful for that!

2. My girlfriend gets a release.
Callie loves coming to the country. When she rides, she gets all kinds of exercise. Riding always makes her super proud of her butt! I'm proud of her butt too! Good job Callie!

Plus, Callie is a very skilled rider. That's partly because she has this uncanny ability to bond with animals. Next time we have an apocalypse, I'm taking her to the zoo so she can build us an animal army. 

Most importantly, riding helps Callie good. She feels fulfilled. This is how she clears her mind. Callie told me today "If I ever get bitchy, take me to ride Harbor." Good to know! I'm thankful for that knowledge!  It may come in handy someday.

3. Bugs love the country.
Bugs love the country.  There is a bunch of stuff they can eat & play with there.  Good.  Bugs should stay in the country.

I am all about equal rights- except for bugs.  When it comes to bugs, I totally believe in segregation.  We should have our drinking fountains & they should have theirs- out in the country! Bugs & people don't mix. I don't want my kids going to schools with bugs! You gotta keep em separated! I am thankful they know their place, & I am thankful it is far away from where I live.

I will say this, though: when I was out in the country, I was outnumbered.  There were a lot of bugs there. They were judging me, staring me down. Callie, Titan & I left. I didn't want any trouble.  I'm thankful I got out of there without getting bit!

Well, I'm off to spread some more positivity.  If you'd like to hear some of it, check out my podcast, The Battery Podcast.  This week's episode was awesome!

Thanks for reading!
Bye! I'm Jake!
