From the Editor

The last issue of the year! Whoopee!!!! I can relax a bit now, take some time off and do jigsaw puzzles!

Merry Christmas from Saddle Up Magazine

Why is it as you get older time truly does fly by? How the heck did we get to December already? On the bright side… we have only had to plow the driveway once! (so far)

The What’s This? column is taking a break – Russ is retiring. Mark McMillan started this feature quite a few years back as part of his Cariboo Chatter news. Then he retired. Russ Shandro resurrected it and now it’s his turn to let it go. Thank you Russ for your interesting items that had our readers guessing every month! It always seemed like a contest as to who could get the (right) answer first!

Check out the Gift Guide inside… the businesses that chose to participate this year have some great gift ideas for you or someone special (2- or 4-legged). Shop instore or shop online!

Reminder, there is no January issue… so next deadline is January 5th for the February issue.

Have a grrreat Christmas holiday and Happy New Year everyone!

Take care – and be safe on the roads.

Until next year,


Nancy Roman Saddle Up Magazine
