When Michael Blowen first dreamed of creating Old Friends, he envisioned a place where Thoroughbred stallions could retire with dignity following their racing or breeding careers. He also wanted people to visit the iconic horses. In 2003, Old Friends opened on leased land with a miniature horse named Little Silver Charm, a gelding named Invigorate and a mare named Narrow Escape. Today, the two-hundred-plus-acre farm in Georgetown has more than 160 retired Thoroughbred stallions, geldings and mares, including two Kentucky Derby winners. It even welcomed two satellite farms, one in New York and one at Kentucky Downs racetrack. In his follow-up to History of Old Friends, Rick Capone revisits the unforgettable history of this horse retirement home.

Old Friends

One day Joe announced, to a family friend who was visiting, that he would never
drink again. ... He'd always been that way— learning in grade school to recite the
alphabet backwards just because a classmate said he couldn't do it.

A Pulitzer Prize–winning author’s “touching, funny and inspiring” true story of daily life in a New England nursing home (The New York Times). Ninety-year-old Lou quit school after the eighth grade, worked for the rest of his life, and stayed with the same woman for nearly seventy years. Seventy-two-year-old Joe was chief probation officer in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, holds a law degree, and has faced the death of a son and the raising of a mentally challenged daughter. Now, the two men are roommates in a nursing home. Despite coming from very different backgrounds, the two become close friends. Focusing on these two men as well as introducing us to the other aging residents of Linda Manor in Northampton, Massachusetts, literary journalist Tracy Kidder examines the sorrows and joys of growing older and the universal struggle to find meaning in the face of mortality. From the New York Times–bestselling author and National Book Award–winning author of The Soul of a New Machine, this is an extraordinary look inside an often-hidden world. “As in his Pulitzer Prize-winning The Soul of a New Machine, House, and the best-selling Among Schoolchildren, Kidder reveals his extraordinary talent as a storyteller by taking the potentially unpalatable subject of life in a nursing home and making it into a highly readable, engrossing account.” —Library Journal “Rich detail and true-to-the-ear dialogue let the brave and determined elderly speak for themselves—and for the continually surprising potential of the human spirit.” —Kirkus Reviews

Walter Crane (1845-1915) was one of the earliest contributors to children's literature and one of the most influential illustrators in the development of children's colour picture books. Crane began working for Edmund Evans in 1864 producing bright, colourful children's books which revolutionised the type of children's books available. He created a series of 'Toy Books' between 1865-1875 which contained fairy stories, nursery rhymes and other tales of adventures. His wonderful Japanese influenced illustrations with their bright, bold, flat colour and black outline never failed to entertain both children and adults. This book 'The Song Of Sixpence Picture Book' is one of many 'Toy Books', it contains the stories, Sing A Song Of Sixpence, Princess Belle Etoile and An Alphabet Of Old Friends. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children.

In Poetry, Pictures, and Popular Publishing eminent Rossetti scholar LorraineJanzen Kooistra demonstrates the cultural centrality of a neglected artifact:the Victorian illustrated gift book. Turning a critical lens on “drawing-room books” as both material objects and historical events, Kooistra reveals how the gift book’s visual/verbal form mediated “high” and popular art as well as book and periodical publication. A composite text produced by many makers, the poetic gift book was designed for domestic space and a female audience; its mode of publication marks a significant momentin the history of authorship, reading, and publishing. With rigorous attention to the gift book’s aesthetic and ideological features, Kooistra analyzes the contributions of poets, artists, engravers, publishers, and readers and shows how its material form moved poetry into popular culture. Drawing on archival and periodical research, she offers new readings of Eliza Cook, Adelaide Procter, and Jean Ingelow and shows the transatlantic reach of their verses. Boldly re-situating Tennyson’s works within the gift-book economy he dominated, Kooistra demonstrates how the conditions of corporate authorship shaped the production and receptionof the laureate’s verses at the peak of his popularity. Poetry, Pictures, and Popular Publishing changes the map of poetry’s place—in all its senses—in Victorian everydaylife and consumer culture.

Poetic Stories from the Eyes of My Windows presents a compilation of personal and heartfelt stories written in poetic form. Author Angellia Moore reveals her memories of love, death, illnesses, and suicide, sharing her stories through verse. The poems in this collection were inspired by actual people around her, actual events in her life, and ideas in her head and heart. No two stories are alike; each one tells its own tale and takes on its own design and meaning. Setting the scene for each carefully, she explores a variety of topics, moments, and memories. Prayer for Black Boys Dear God, Now I lay me down to sleep I pray for Black Boys on the street. I pray that they will make good choices Let them hear their mamas voices. Son, grow up and do whats right I pray that youll come home tonight Her remarkable gift of dreaming and writing is no longer a vision but a reality. She has put her writing skills into a remarkable book of poems. These poems made me laugh, and they made me think about how I have the power to make a positive influence in this world. Harriet S. Stephens, Lieutenant Colonel, Retired, US Army Angellia's poetry is respectful, insightful, and uplifting. She is brave, bold, and inspiring. Her poetry wakes my sleeping soul.

A Kasey Michaels Alphabet Regency Romance Classic. **BONUS NOVELLA** The Ninth Miss Noddenly "Using wit and romance with a master's skill, Kasey Michaels aims for the heart and never misses." -- Nora Roberts Long ago and far away, in 1976 actually, Kasey was asked to compile the history of her Pennsylvania township as the entire country celebrated its Bicentennial. She fell in love with the Lennai Lenape Native Americans who had inhabited the area, and in 1985, she decided to bring one of those noble men to England to protect his charge, the orphaned but quite independent Alexandra Saxon. (You can pretty well see the reason now for the title, yes?) Alex had promised her dying father she’d travel to England and present herself to her curmudgeon of a grandfather, who was certain to take her in.

A Kasey Michaels Alphabet Regency Romance Classic. "Using wit and romance with a master's skill, Kasey Michaels aims for the heart and never misses." -- Nora Roberts Beaumont Remington -- known only as “Fish” in The Haunted Miss Hampshire, is a man searching for revenge ... but what he finds with Rosalind Winslow, the sister of his enemy, is something much more satisfying: She was a pretty enough little thing, he granted to himself, and she would have brought out more of his protective tendencies if he didn't believe she could probably hold off an army on her own, if not with weapons then with her sharp tongue and even sharper intellect. And it wasn't as if he had ever held out any great hopes for a love match. He was too raw, too uneducated, and too set in his ways to ever believe he was the sort females of Rosalind Winslow's birth and breeding might flock to with visions of happily-ever-after gleaming in their eyes. But she was a Winslow, and her family and his were sworn enemies, not that he had so far been able to summon up any real animosity toward her. Did this house, this property, mean enough to him that he would even consider marrying a Winslow? He looked around the large room, taking in the purity of its architecture, the beauty of its furnishings. This was only one room. If the rest of the house lived up to its first impression, how could he turn his back and walk away? This was his family inheritance, the place of his birth. His parents, or so said Bridget, had been immensely happy here, and their bodies, as well as those of his grandparents and great-grandparents, were interred in a mausoleum somewhere on the property. He had been robbed, cheated of his home by an unscrupulous Winslow who had preyed on a disconsolate, grieving man. For twelve years Beau had believed himself to be someone else, and for the past twenty-three years, two months, and six days he had been living only for the moment he would walk back into this house and claim it for his family, for the Remingtons. Could he marry Rosalind Winslow in order to secure the house and estate grounds? He could. He would. But he would have to be careful how he went about it ...
