After chatting with a friend last weekend, I noticed this couple enjoying their Sunday afternoon through city parks in Taylor She was riding Mabel, a 12-year-old mule, he was astride Chaca, a little younger, but just as beautiful. I followed them for a while. To my surprise, they stopped for a minute, then stood atop their friends for a brief time. Mabel and Chaca seemed to be loving the day as much as their human friends. In almost 30 years in Atlanta, this is something I never got to see. It’s good to be home.
