Andreas Dibowski and Butts Leon at the Badminton Jog. I got to know Butts a bit while he was with Nina Ligon, and I think he's a really cool guy. Photo by Jenni Autry.
The past two weeks have felt like a whirlwind of eventing news. This weekend, I am enjoying fun with family and friends, as I happen to have a Cinco de Mayo birthday. The festivities begin with a good ol’ fashion redneck hootinanny. Of course, I am not really sure what exactly a hootinanny entails, but my husband assures me that it’s what they call a party around here. I must send out good luck to Samantha Hay and Manny Diemer, who are down strutting their stuff at the Heart of the Carolinas Three Day.
