They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. I don’t know who “they” are but I like them. Anyone who wants to give me an apple every day is a winner in my book.
Boy, it’s been a while since my last post. I guess like a lot of people, I started with good intentions and came out of the starting gate with a bang. But then, you know what happens… life kicks in, you’ve got appearances to make, cable to watch, Slurpees to drink. Before you know it, you forget your WordPress password – OK not really, but it sounded good.
While they don’t call me the “Wonder Horse” for nothing (you do know I play basketball, right?), not having thumbs does make it difficult to type. The truth is, I rely on the PR Girl for some things. So, I dictate my thoughts to the PR Girl, who types my blogs for me. She writes and I munch away on the apples that “they” have brought me.
We’ve been meaning to write for a while, but the PR Girl had a pretty tough year. She never says much to people. She figures most people have it worse than she does. But take it from me, it’s been tough. I think I’ve really helped her through it, but we have a ways to go. She’s still determined, though, to bring people smiles, and she works hard every day, doing PR for me and for her other clients, getting creative, writing copy, building websites (you’ve seen my website, right – http://www.amosthewonderhorse.com) and setting appointments for my appearances on TV shows and special events. Plus, she’s working on making me into a household name. You know, Palmolive, Raid, Amos the Wonder Horse.
She’s also still working on introducing me to Ellen Degeneres since she has two mini horses herself. I figure we could get a game of H.O.R.S.E. together. Then there’s Jimmy Fallon. He actually tweeted to me once. Yep! Right to ME!
Then, of course, there’s my Facebook page. I have a lot more friends now than I did when I started this blog. It’s true. Almost 1600 friends from all over the world – like Australia, the Middle East, the UK and different places in Europe. it’s all quite exciting for a little horse like me. We’re always looking for new friends – so don’t keep me all to yourself. Share me! There’s enough of me to go around.
So, things might be tough for the PR Girl, but we’re gonna do it. We’re in this together! After all, I AM the one who makes people smile, not her. She’s just the driver, and the typist, and the cook (brings me my hay) and the upstairs maid (OK, we don’t have an upstairs at the barn. I was just making sure you were paying attention. But she does clean my stall. What? You don’t expect me to do it, do you?) and the Slurpee and Starbucks runner…but I’m still the star.
So, we’re BACK to BLOG, baby – and it’s all to bring you a smile, or two. And HAY – if they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, just think how good a smile would make you feel.
And if you ever find out who “they” are, let me know. I owe ‘em an apple – and a smile.
‘Cuz that’s how I roll!
