Now, with that said, onward and upward. Lift your head above the clouds girlfriend. Get your head out of that thick fog. I'm starting a little part time job teaching nursing assistants clinical this week. I am also getting my first Social Security check this month. I will need a little extra spending money, so I am keeping my eyes peeled for any small offers of employment :0)
Thursday through Sunday I will be attending the Faansie Basson clinic in Olympia at Dave's place. Thursday is lesson day, Fri/Sat is the working clinic and Sun. is a shedding clinic. It couldn't have come at a better time!
On the way home after getting myself concussed, I ran both my dogs at Scio in ankle deep mud. I wasn't 100% and neither of my dogs ran all that well either. Yoko would not cover her fetch and just wasn't a happy camper, but I made her slog through it until time was called on her cross drive. Pretty boy Champ did okay. We missed both our drive panels and I was literally stuck in the mud with 3 sheep glued to me in the shed ring, so we lost all of our shed/pen points. That's okay, he got around with different sheep. That's our whole point of this year. EXPERIENCE.
I will try to get into Heppner (Oregon) and Sonoma and McCormack (California) These are big trials that use range ewes. It is time for Champ and me to venture out. All we have trailed here in the PNW have been farm flocks. It will be great experience for us.
I plan on stopping in at our Green Valley home, but I think that might be the first week in April. Not sure yet. I have to put all my plans in front of me. Lord willing' and the creeks don't rise....
