When I look back at the past week — the trauma of Mike dying, trying to catch up at work and get the Bulletin done, herding in the cold yesterday — it’s hard to believe that I am sitting at my desk this morning as if it was a normal day. Lots happened, so this is a recap:
Tater went to Lisa’s on Friday night and on Saturday went to his forever show home with Kathleen McCombs. He is a fortunate baby to have found people that are crazy about him. Yesterday Tommy (Chase/Scout) earned his 14th Championship point. He just has one more point to go and he will be CH Mockingbird It’s the Magic in Me. His owner is doing a great job with him. Eleven month old Tommy is his Daddy’s boy — loves to go to shows, loves to watch TV. He is our Lowri’s littermate.
I came into the office on Friday and Saturday to work on the Bulletin — not finished, but close.
Yesterday Nola and I went herding. IT WAS SO COLD. The elevation where the stock is housed is over 7,000 feet and the wind was really blowing. So I just added balaclava and hat-with-ear-flaps to my shopping list. I need to go to Sportsmans Warehouse before we herd again. I think we are going to begin herding at a place that is only twenty-five minutes from my house. We’ll have to do it on a weekday, but I’ll work that out. It will be so much better than driving an hour and a half each way.
Time to kill trees — I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving.
