OK, I want to write something to post, but I don’t have much time. I got home a little before noon today from a business trip to California and I leave tomorrow morning for a week in Lyon (France) for another business meeting.
So, here’s the list of who’s in the house right now:
On October 2, Abby and I flew down to Tampa agin so I could spend a week on the boat, working and sailing. Not to worry, though: Abby doesn’t have to ride in the belly of the plane; she sits in my lap the entire way. How, you’re undoubtedly asking yourself, did I manage that!
Well, we’re finally back from our trip. As planned, we spent two days driving to Louisiana to spend three days with Jim’s mother, who’s 95 years old. We left there on 31 July and drove the remaining 850 miles to Clearwater Beach, FL in one longish day. The next 19 days were spent doing a [...]
Near the end of July, we’re going to take a trip to Florida to visit our 40-foot sailboat, Dream SeQuel. For a variety of reasons, we’ve decided that we’re going to drive! It’s “only” 2400 or 2500 miles The major reason we’re driving is that renting a car for three weeks while we’re [...]
For a number of weeks now, Barbara and I have been sleeping on separate floors of our 3-story house. Most of the time, she sleeps on the couch in the family room on the main floor, while I (if I’m not out of town somewhere) usually sleep in the bedroom on the upper floor. We [...]
Well, we’ve been back from the National for two weeks (plus most of today) and I haven’t had time to blog. I still don’t but I really should let you guys know some of what’s going on.
I spent the first entire week home working on the financial paperwork for the National Rescue [...]
The 2010 ASSA National Shetland Sheepdog Specialty dog show is over and we’re back at home. Actually, it was over almost a week ago and we got home very late Sunday night, 21 March, after a long but beautiful drive home from Tucson on mostly 2-lane blacktop roads. We’ve spent this week doing a bunch [...]
Just a brief report from the 2010 ASSA National in Tucson, AZ (USA)…
First, sales are down. Horribly down. We’re just over 50% of the sales we normally have by this time (end of Thursday). Barbara and I would be better off financially if we’d just stayed home
Second, some time yesterday between 2:00 PM [...]
We’ll blog more about the details later, but I wanted to tell our readers that we set some kind of new record last week. In one week, we placed for adoption six (6) dogs! It happened so fast that I found myself quietly crying one evening because I couldn’t remember all the details and I [...]
Well, I guess we have just gotten too comfortable, loafing along with a mere 15 dogs in the house. But that’s all about to change, and soon…
In the last few days, it seems like every time I overhear Barbara talking on the phone, it’s about yet another incoming rescue Sheltie. Here are the dogs about [...]
