On The Ranch

Who would ever have thought I would be spending a holiday weekend at Skywalker Ranch, home of myth and legend? Oh but I did. There were animals, large amounts of barbecue, free drinks, relay races, and hay bales.

Kamel and I were literally the first guests into the coral, and we bee-lined it towards the animal pens because I have a soft spot for well maintained farm life.

There were chickens and goats and this little guy who i think is a ram, but he was living with the chickens, so maybe he was confused. There were also horses and shetlen ponies - which totally freak me out because all i can envision when i see them is THIS.... and ew.

It was about 85 degrees and beautiful. I spent a lot of time sweating.  The ranch was so cliche americana, with kids running around, a swimming pool, a lake, hay bale rides, and potluck salads, it was surreal. The weekend is off to a great start, thanks Mr. Lucas.
