Austin The Impressionist!

Some of you might remember my world (in)famous impression of a bear skin hat! In the same fashion ....

... here I am doing my impression of a riding hat!



Once again, I was so successful that my services were engaged at the Show Jumping Championships at Hickstead .....


... where I am happy to say I achieved a comfortable first in the Mixed British Championships! Yes, you read correctly.  I came first, the horse came second and the rider came third, as we parted company at the second to last fence which was a rather tricky triple bar! The judges ruled that it was of no consequence which part of the team arrived at the finish first!

I am now recuperating at home and will be able to receive visitors very soon :)

bifurcation (from the Latin bifurcat) - the act of purchasing a feline with fur

  17. I think you'd do as a hat! In fact, if historical memory serves... Weren't you with Banastre Tarleton when he fought the Americans? Take a look at this picture: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banastre_Tarleton

  31. You totally struck our funny bones. Mom did that WW post of Giulietta where she asked, fur hat or cat? She never tried putting Giulietta on a person's head. You are so clever, so clever. And so, so, cute. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
