Save a horse, ride a cowboy

marathon 005 Our trip to Nashville offered all kinds of opportunities to test the rules of decorum.

As we headed north on Highway 45, we spotted a sculpture that has been causing quite a stir in the Golden Triangle.  An enormous stallion has been erected in front of a strip club called “The Pony.”

It seems certain portions of the horse’s anatomy have generated numerous complaints from area residents. Therefore, the club’s owner covered the questionable parts with a colorful pair of panties.

As we cruised by, we decided to do a little sculpture climbing.  It wasn’t easy, but you must remember  we are four ” fifty-something” reserved ladies with lots of energy, facing a five-hour drive in my truck

We decided to begin the trip with our daring little experiment. Besides, it would be good training for the marathon.

Yup, we hoisted ourselves half way up the statue while passing 18-wheelers sat on their horns. A traffic jam ensued, and we prayed the law wouldn’t happen by.  I’m sure we’d have been arrested and prevented from participating in the Half Marathon in Nashville.

It was great fun, and we sang “Save a horse, ride a cowboy” for the rest of the trip.  It became our theme song for the momentus weekend.  We succeeded and knew anything was possible from that point forward!

  1. Well, I’ll have to say you four “young” girls obviously enjoyed yourselves on the entire trip!! I can imagine the traffic jam you caused at the Pony!
    Some of the truckers probably thought you were some of the dancers
    employed there (meant as a compliment!). Congratulations on completing
    the race, and glad you made it back ok.
