I traveled through Big Sur the next summer after Hwy 1 reopened. Nancy and I were on our way to meet up with one of my new clients, Mary Macgregor. Mary was a pop singing superstar coming into prominence a decade earlier when her most famous song, “Torn Between Two Lovers” made it to the number one spot. Currently, she was headlining at the Double Tree Hotel Lounge in Monterey.

Earlier in the month Mary’s road manager Melenie called me out to their ranch to preg check one of their mares, Babe. Palpating a pregnancy, I looked at her breeding date. She was due to foal in early spring.

During the preg check, Melenie invited me to hear Mary sing, that's why Nancy and I drove up to Monterey. When we arrived at the place, Melenie came over to greet us, leading us to a front table. Mary came over to talk between sets. Mel introduced us; the star paid scant attention. There was small talk, but she was busy, and none of us had much in common other than I was the vet for her pregnant mare. Still, I was intrigued and interested in the woman. Nancy must have realized my focus; she pouted the entire way home by not talking for two hours
