Tackmaker OCD

Yesterday the kids and I and some of our friends went to Casa Bonita.  

This theme restaurant is a Colorado landmark, featuring a huge dining area complete with thirty foot waterfall, live entertainment and mediocre Mexican food.  There are also two arcades, one with games and another with rides.

My kids know me a little too well.  As soon as they saw this palomino, they knew they were going to be required to pose on it.  James went first.  I snapped his picture quickly...
and then I noticed the bridle.  Ugh.  That's not how it's supposed to go together.
I tried to ignore it--I really did--but my tackmaker OCD was going crazy.  Carol said, "Just fix it already."  So I did.
 Whew!  That's much better.
Although--and I can't ignore this either--he still needs a curb strap...

  4. Click on the words "Casa Bonita" in the first paragraph and you'll go to a post with the rest of my Casa Bonita pictures. The lighting is really funky in there so the quality is all over the place, but you can see the waterfall and everything else.

  13. You are totally right about Casa Bonita. As a kid, I remember it being the most awesome place, and coming back nearly 20 years later, it wasn't quite what I remembered (definitely spot on about the food...not so good!). Probably didn't help that I got stuck in the magician's dining room instead of the one with the waterfall & cliff divers. Oh well! Fun thinking about it anyway :)
