THE HOUSE IS SO QUIET AND I NEED TO TELL A STORY. I HAVE PUTTING OFF THIS PART OF MY BLOG FOR TO LONG BECAUSE IT IS SO EMOTIONAL TO ME AND SO DEAR TO MY HEART AND THAT IS HOW MS MJ'S LEGACY RECIEVED HER NAME. SHE IS NAMED AFTER MY FATHER, MELVIN JOEL, WHO PASSED AWAY IN OCTOBER- IT WILL BE 6 MONTHS ON THE DAY OF THE AUCTION. HE WAS A GREAT MAN WHO ALWAYS SUPPORTED ME WITH ANY OF MY DECISIONS GOOD OR BAD. I HESITATED FOR A BIT TO DO THE CHALLENGE BUT SOMETHING INSIDE OF ME PUSHED ME FORWARD. I COULD ALMOST HEAR MY FATHER SAYING, " GO FOR IT HONEY. IF THIS IS ONE OF YOUR DREAMS DON'T LET IT PASS BY YOU, BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU CAN NEVER GET THEM BACK." IS THAT NOT THE TRUTH. SO I FILLED OUT THE PAPERWORK AND HERE I AM DOCUMENTING MY ADVENTURE AND LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT. I KNOW IN MY HEART THAT MY FATHER WOULD BE VERY PROUD OF ME AND MJ AND HOW FAR WE HAVE COME AND HOW THIS WHOLE EXPERIENCE HAS BROUGHT OUR FAMILY CLOSER TOGETHER AFTER SUCH A GREAT LOSS. SO I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE BLM FOR GIVING ME THIS LIFE CHANGING OPPORTUNITY.

  1. Can you help us stop the mass murder and imprisonment of 33,000 wild horses and burros! The Wild Horse Foundation has a plan that offers a solution, but we need your help! Please stop this trail of carnage and public waste by contacting Ken Salazar at the Bureau of Land Management at the link below:
