She's back in the saddle again at the Reagan Ranch in Andrew Coffin's exclusive "Palin visits Reagan Country" at Andrew Breitbart's Big Government. A must read and must view. Wish we had a digital image of that picture in the hall of the family manse Down East of our own pater familias, the Goompster, a superb horseman back in the day, when he'd ride Buddy, his handsome pinto mustang with a brand on his hip, 35 miles along the main road from Wakefield through Lynnfield, Ipswich and Essex to the family camp in Gloucester, MA for the summer. "A 10- to 12-hour ride as I remember," he reports, adding "my father bought him for $110 at a horse auction in Allston. He was estimated to be about 15 years old. Horses are serviceable until about 18." Photo credit: © Jensen Sutta.

Freedom as practiced for two hundred years in the USA produced the kindest most generous and most prosperous society the world has ever known.
Thank you very much for the "BLOG COMMENT OF THE DAY" citation ... The author, my father — aka Goomp — just i-mailed me "Fame comes to Goomp. :)"
We're still reeling in cyberecstasy at the Master of the Blogosphere's reply:
Oh, that's great. I had no idea. Obviously, wit runs in the family.
"FUN! Check out wrought iron sign (inset, top left) of Morning-in-America photo of Sarah, Bristol, Willow & Trig @ Reagan Ranch," we twittered this afta with a link to the above image (scroll down). In case the type's too small, here's what it says: "The Reagans, 1600 Penn. Ave." Photo credit: © Jensen Sutta.
Taking the ball and running with it, Goomp scored a touchdown in imail this afternoon:
It is great to take after your children.
