For Simplicity Sake

The picture you see at the top of this blog is of a refrigerator magnet that Yeoldfurt brought me after one of his business trips.  It's a cartoon caricature of a horse 'exiting Stage Left' as it were, with a female holding on for dear life at the end of the lead rope.  She looks surprisingly calm, even happy, considering the predicament she seems to be in.  The words overlaying the picture are 'Woman Who Runs With Horses.'  Yeoldfurt brought it home to me and said he thought of me when he saw it.  When I made those words the name on my blog, I did not realize they would be my 'handle' every time I left a comment anywhere.  I know it's a mouthful.   Occasionally, people who respond to my comments address me as 'Woman' but most go with "WWRWH.'  Believe me, I know it's a mouthful.

So tonight, I decided to simplify things ...for all of us.  I have made many blog friends in the two years I've been blogging and in those circles, I am known as HossBoss, or simply HB.  I'm not sure when that happened or who gave me the name ...heck, it might even have been me!  Maybe it was when we started going into chat in the early days and I used it as a handle ...even I find WomanWhoRunsWithHorses a bit cumbersome to type out!  But the name 'HossBoss' stuck.  Tonight, I decided to make it official and have changed it on my blogger account.  So if any of you see 'HossBoss' leaving comments on your posts ...it's just me, WWRWH!

Dear Woman who runs with horses....
I just wanted to stop in and remind you to get your letter off to my dd13. I am so very grateful for your support for her. We are planning on heading into Brenhan to have some yummy Ice cream ... I love your blog. My hubby just helped my parents drive 1500 miles to live here with us. So he is still road weary.....
I hope things settle down for you all....
Much love and thanks.

Hello,
I think it is so great that you posted back so quickly... She would love a disposable camera. She asked me tonight if I got her one and I felt bad...What an awesome thing for you to do. They do not allow food for treats. I am super grateful for the offer. I will do better at leaving comments as I appreciate them so much. Thank you again.

I used to use WWRWH, but then I just switched to HB. :) I do believe you came up with HossBoss for chat. You even tried changing it one time but HB stuck. :D

No matter the name, still love ya just the same. ;)

Love & Hugs to you and YOF

@Melissa...
Package going out in the mail tomorrow ...a letter to follow on Wednesday. I sent you an email earlier.

@Fel...
You're right! I signed into chat as 'HossBoss' the first time I went there. I think it was you that shortened it to HB or maybe it was YOF. Whatever, it's a WHOLE LOT EASIER than typing WWRWH, huh!

Hey, Redneck ...I'm trying to shorten and SIMPLIFY, not lengthen and complicate! LOL

HB will do just fine, thank you!
