Manny Having the Time of His Life with his Friend, Biasini in FL

My teddy bear, Manny used to travel world-wide, but since the pandemic has quarantined at home with us. Since his interview of Biasini, Anne (Ma) Leueen’s interview about being a guest host on Lens Artist, he’s been begging to go visit Biasini. (And to get a horse for Christmas)

It’s quite a bit easier for him to travel than for Vince and me, so we said yes to traveling, but we weren’t too sure about getting him a horse. We live in a three-bedroom condo in Prescott, not Prescott or Chino Valley where most of the horse owners live. Fortunately for Manny, I found him a perfect horse, so that when he comes back, he can practice what he learned riding Biasini.

So, he practiced and practiced until it was time for him to leave and visit Biasini.

Ma Leueen wrote and said he arrived in Florida safely in just about three days, six days less than UPS said it would take him to get there.

What we didn’t count on was how his horse was going to take his departure.

Nutter Butter got out of bed to see what all the neighing was about, but he wasn’t much consolation since he couldn’t see a problem outside the door.

Biasini Speaks

Hello Dear Humans! Guess what? My friend Manny came for a visit to see me here in Florida. Yes, he did. You may remember he interviewed me a while ago for his blog. Click here to read that post. I invited him to come and have a ride on me.  Continue reading this adorable post…

Here are two of the many marvelous pictures that you will see on Biasini’s post.

Manny is obviously starting to improve his balance after one day. He loves getting to know the family virtually. I’m sure he will have something to say about all of this, too. Meanwhile, I was thrilled to read Biasini’s post and I am 100% in shock at how well Manny is doing in his riding lessons.

Thank you so much to Ma (Anne) Leueen and Biasini for hosting Manny. I can tell he is having the time of his life!

  2. I read Biasini’s post yesterday, so glad the two of them are having a great ride (pun intended)! I still have two bears I made at Build-A-Bear, it’s been a long time since I got them. I intentionally packed them both and they are hiding in the house somewhere. The few toys I saved including these bears happily sat on the shelf in the guest room. Still waiting for new shelves in our new guest rooms. BTW, cutest rocking horse, Marsha! Where is Manny going next, any ideas?

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
