Photo Of The Week – 2/23/11

February 24, 2011

Since we just returned from Arizona, it seems appropriate to feature El Mariachi as the Photo of the Week. Both he and Hope look wonderful. I hope to have a full post about our trip uploaded in the next week or two. What a great time we had visiting the horses, Michael Blake and several Facebook buddies.

For those that don’t yet know the story of these two horses, here is the link: “Rescuing An American Icon.”
