Happenings

Can't believe it's been almost a week since I last posted.  Let's see, what's happened 'round these parts.

Husband went out of town.  I had to do my own laundry and dishes!  THE HORROR!  Yes, I am spoiled.  Even one armed, he does the laundry and dishes.  Well, I did give him a few months off.  But he's in physical therapy now so it's good for him.  ;)

Husband back in town.  Happy dance.  Not just because I no longer have to do the laundry and dishes.  Cause I missed him.  Entertaining myself is far less fun then entertaining him.  So glad he's home.  So was Penelope.  She peed all over when he walked in the gate and pet her.  She was excited.  I wasn't THAT happy.  I managed to control my bladder.

Neighbor called me yesterday to tell me his wife found our bull about two miles from the house!  Excuse me.  He's suppose to be right out here in the pasture!  She "pushed" him down the road with her car.  Thankfully, the bull cooperated and came straight home.  I ran out and opened the gate.  He ran right in.  She said her husband told her not to get out of her car, "That is that crazy fighting bull."  She said she had no intention of getting out of her car.  I giggled.  Yes, he's not the nicest bull but I walk out in his pasture every day to feed.  Anyhow, she got him home for me.  Thank you great neighbors!

This morning I went to the spay/neuter clinic to take the staff pictures.  They weren't as excited as I was about the picture taking.  Guess it wasn't their idea!  But they humored me.  Here are a couple of my favorites.



I have decided I need to find human subjects to practice on.  Think that will boost my confidence when it comes to taking people pictures.  Animals, I'm good.  Add a person, YIKES!  So I'm going to look for victims, I mean models.

Hope everyone has a beautiful Easter.

Giggled about the bladder control; and kudos to your neighbors. Your people pics have always been good; you just need to be more confidant!

Your people pictures are great! What are you talking about? The first one is really good. If I had a picture that nice of me and the dogs I'd be showing it everywhere.
