Rosie's Broken Wing.

Our Rose is now the proud owner of the cutest cast on our block… thanks to the very kind and accommodating medical staff at Cincinnati Children's. 
Rosie is all about accessories, and really, a neon pink and green cast makes the ultimate first grade fashion statement.  
She broke her wrist following a heated discussion while riding her best pony pal Cocoa Puff. 
Cocoa Puff is a very sweet pony, but she is also strong and smart and has about 20 years on 6 year old Ro.
This gentle bestie friends photo was taken about a week before their argument…happily, they are back on good terms again.

After the promise of a cool cast, the second best thing about a broken wrist it that you get to have an arm X-ray. 
Rosie is fascinated by the bones in her arm and will share it with anyone who shows even a smidge of interest.
As she was in the casting room at Children's, she was asked if she was interested in rainbow glitter being added to her cast while it was still wet.
"Glitter, please!"
Rosie's personal motto is always say a very big "YES!" to glitter.  
My girl is now one week into a 4 week cast. 
She is doing very well and has self diagnosed her wrist as just fine, completely healed and not hurty anymore. 
"Feels just like my regular old arm... I'm ready for the cast to come off... I need to ride again before I forget how." 
Unfortunately, her docs don't quite agree… but a few more weeks of "taking it easy" and she will be back in full action again.

Ohio State 4-Miler-Finish on the 50!

My college gal pals and I were very excited to be four of the more than 12,000 runners/ walkers that participated in the Ohio State 4 Miler to benefit cancer research not too long ago.
When we registered for the event way back in July, we were excited to be a part of it, but then we saw this notation amongst the less important race day information. 
"Unique Finisher's Medel to Feature Iconic Buckeye Football Helmet"
And you better believe that we all signed up as fast as we could type because as a group, we really do appreciate our iconic Buckeye Football Helmet bling. 
The goal was to finish on the 50, which we all did very well… so maybe we didn't run, but each of us walked super briskly, and felt super sporty for 4 miles in a row.
I asked my fellow sporty gal pal Terry to take this photo under the goal post instead of on the 50 yard line… because it's not so often I have a chance to strike a pretend TD pose in the Buckeye end zone.   
The race was really fun, but even more hilarious was spending time with friends from way back… a lot of life has happened since the OSU Bradley Hall days including the group acquisition of reading glasses to order from a menu in a lowlight restaurant. 
Here we are all striking a glamour pose in our oh so stylish readers.
How Firm Thy Friendship…
