ZBHBH: Everyday Fail

For me, this title can probably be changed to “Fail Every Day”, but I digress…

I failed to see a distance. Magic failed to see a height.

I love this blog hop! This must be hands down the funniest one hosted… and it’s given me an idea that may just have to become Riding on Water’s first blog hop.

Praise God for the horses that keep the best of us humble.

      Hahaha thanks! Yes, you rather expect crocodiles to jump out at you, don’t you? This is Africa after all! Luckily Arwen did not have these thoughts!

  5. To be fair, I ALSO spent a fair bit of time shying at baboons when I lived in Kenya, so I feel like that is a little justified…. 😉
