The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

THE MONTH BEFORE CHRISTMAS

THE MONTH BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Or

Poem from Tex

The day before Xmas my phone rang and it was one of my neighbors. She said she had something for me and if I had a few minutes she would like to bring it over. "Of course!" I said. Now she is a good cook and I thought it would be cookies or something like that. Well, cookies it was but she also had written a poem from her horse to me.

Now I can see you all rolling your eyes now. What? A poem from a horse! So let me give you just a little background. My neighbor has six horses and one of them likes to play Houdini. He is always finding a way to get out of a 10 acre pasture! And it seems like I'm the one who always catches him in the act!  Alexandra

So here is the darling poem from Tex to me:

The Month Before Christmas

 

Twas the month before Christmas, it rained and it poured

The grass grew and grew as above the hawks soared

We lazily grazed by the fence without care

In hopes that the Lady on the Hill would be there.

 

One night we lay all snug on our beds

While visions of the Lady danced in our heads

Amigo in the valley and I on the knoll

Had just settled down after an evening stroll.

 

When out by the pasture there arose such a clatter

I raced from my bed to see what was the matter

And to the fence I flew like a flash

Galloping over the hill in a 100 yard dash!

 

The moon shined down on newly grown grass

And tree branches gleamed like polished brass

When what to my wondering eyes should appear

But the Lady on the Hill, we had nothing to fear!

 

With buckets of carrots, she smiled at us all

We knew in a moment to run to the wall

More rapid than eagles to the fence we all came

And she smiled and shouted and called us by name!

 

Now Tex, the gray boy, JD the bay

Amigo the paint, this is your lucky day

Here are some carrots, you've answered by call

Eat them, enjoy them then dash away all!

 

The dry leaves scattered, the wild winds fly

We frolicked and played, our dreams soared high

She watched us race, up the knoll we flew

With the wind in our manes and long tails too.

 

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the road

The Lady was leaving, her car she did load

As we turned our heads and looked around

Up the driveway she drove, homeward bound.

 

I never knew that she watches with love

Our movements, our antics, she sees from above

She observes us as we chase the birds

And laughs at our attempts to be leader of the herd.

 

Her eyes how they twinkle! Her laugh is so merry!

Her cheeks are like roses, her lips like a cherry!

Her beautiful smile lights up the world

Her hair shines so brightly when she dances and twirls.

 

Then one day while grazing in the morning sun

On the other side of the fence, I just HAD to have some

I spied the grass, growing lush, green and tall

But how was I going to get on the other side of the wall?

 

I found an opening I might escape through

But little did I know I was always in her view.

Under the fence rail then up the driveway

At last I found the most delicious buffet.

 

I was in horse heaven, but I did not know

The Lady on the Hill was watching the show.

She called my owners and soon I was back home

The fence rail was fixed, I could no longer roam.

 

Now I must be content to wait by the wall

In hopes that she will bring treats again for us all.

Little did I realize as I grazed in the field

That my guardian angel is the Lady on the Hill.

 

By TEX, the gray horse.

Hope that you all had a wonderful Hanukkah and a Merry Christmas.

Here's to a wonderful 2012!

Alexandra & Cate
