Bummer

Well, there was just no way I could swing the Kelpie Nationals this year. We are short handed at work, and I just can't get away. Bums me out considerably.
So, this weekend will be spent doing, well, I don't know. Just want to get through the week.

Next weekend is the sheep and wool festival in Rhinebeck NY. It is a big event- well attended, and I look forward to it. Something about a fall festival, complete with the cool air, baked goods, home made chicken pot pie, and of course a sheepdog trial, really gets the juices flowing.

There are mice in the attic, so I have to deal with that today (and NOT forget). They like to roll their nuts right over my head at night. Mr Chips alerts me to this...
BJ the Parakeet is still doing okay. The other day he was puffed up, so I immediately thought the worst. But, he seems okay now. It may soon be time to get him a friend....

Where are/were the Kelpie Nationals? Sorry you have to miss it - I always love my breed's Nationals.

They are in North CArolina. They had one last year in Washington.

Aw, man, you were coming to NC??!! Dang. If something changes you're welcome to crash on an air mattress at my place! Blasted work. :(
