Reminds Us Of Minnie Pearl

Except that the price tag does not read $1.98 for sure.

And it is a halter. And he's a horse.

He is funny sometimes.

Maybe it should not remind me as much of Minnie as it does come to think of it.

It has been 12 years since Minnie Pearl's death but I am pretty certain most everyone that reads my blog knows who she is.

Minnie Pearl was her stage name of course. Her real name was Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon according to the Wiki article about her.

She was known for wearing this big old hat with the price tag still left on it and the price tag had $1.98 printed on it.

I like Minnie Pearl.

I'm voting today just in case anyone wonders but that will be quite a bit later in the day from the time this post is published.

Minnie Pearl? That is too funny. But I have to say that the horse doesn't really look anything like her. Funny, how something as simple as a price tag can bring up a memory.

I hope you don't have to stand in the long lines they are predicting to vote today. I am so glad I vote absentee.

Minnie Pearl was awesome. Very colorful woman.

Beautiful horse. They sure such majestic animals.

I voted after I got off work at 5pm CT. There were no lines and I got right in.

One of my writing buddies wrote a piece about a horse he owned as a child. Her name was Minnie Pearl! If you have Chicken Soup for the Horse Lovers Soul, you'll find his story in there.
