I’m a Virgo. My friends Carol and Kathleen are both Libras. So instead of having separate birthday parties, all three of us decamped, along with our husbands, to Sonoma for one big birthday bash.
The girls all went horseback riding. I’m on a quarterhouse named Pumpkin. She’s, well, pumpkin-colored and sweet as can be. We’re trotting through Jack London State Park, the leaves are fluttering from the oak trees that line the path. Our guide is giving us the history of property and how the residence Jack London built (Wolf House) burned to the ground before he and his wife Charmian ever got to move in. What is still standing is the giant stone pig pens he built (the Pig Palace) for his prized pigs. Frankly, I’m getting a little bored. I’m hoping we get to gallop some. I want to run!
