Horseback Riding or Riding on the Back of a Horse!

As a young boy I wanted a horse. More than anything else in this world, I wanted a horse. In my fantasy world, I would be Roy Rogers on Trigger, a jockey aboard Man of War, or a pioneer driving a covered wagon on the Oregon Trail.

I got my wish. (Watch what you pray for!) Suddenly my fantasy world ran head long into my new reality. My horse, Sham, was a beautiful animal. He was young, spirited, and IMPOSSIBLE TO RIDE.

A few minutes ago I was contacted by a nice lady informing me that I too had hit the jackpot of the Class Action Lawsuit world and I would be receiving my check as well. The party that so injured me as to warrant these damages was a restaurant that had caused me grievous harm and permanent damage by sending me unauthorized faxes. (FAXES NOT FOXES).
