Demo

The demo went reasonably well.  The people were quite impressed with my dogs.  They wanted to know how long it took to train them and if I could train their kids.  There were a few kids there I would have just as soon shot rather than train.  One in particular ran out onto the field […]

Fifteen minute update …

Work went well.  I was honored to see that there was only one other “new” cashier working the 4:45 AM to 1 PM shift and she started a week before me.  All of the other cashiers were experienced.  The put me on a register that is hardly ever used and the scanner wasn’t working properly.  […]

Early morning!

Here it is 3:40 AM.  I’m showered and have make-up on.  Still need to dry my hair.  Agh!  I did exactly what I thought I’d do: woke up every few hours.  So, I’m going to be a zombie by the time I get through today.  Oh well, I don’t have to work again until Tuesday. […]

Gobble! Gobble!

Happy Turkey Day.  I hope you are enjoying it.  I surely am!  I have my stuffing made and it’s cooling on the back porch.  The turkey is in the sink warming up so I don’t have to stick my hands in a freezing cold bird.  An apple pie and pumpkin pie are in the oven […]

More updates

A quick update on Esme … she’s a holy terror!!  I can’t believe she’s six weeks old already.  How time flies. It’s a good day to stay in, keep warm and read.  I thought I’d pull out Building Blocks for Performance by Bobbi Anderson and re-read it.  It is a great book for foundation training.  […]

Catching up

I worked eight hours both Saturday and Sunday and was dead on my feet both days when I got home.  So a quick update here.  Gel, Fern and I were hired to do herding demos at a local winterfest this weekend.  I’m pretty excited about that!  I’ll need to spend some time figuring out what […]

Twilight Rocks!

What an enjoyable couple of hours getting lost in that amazing story.  I can’t wait for the sequels.  I would have liked to have stayed and watched it a second time.  But alas, I had to get home to get cheese going, grind rabbits and milk goats.  Early to bed tonight as I’ll have to […]
