All is quiet on the Western front....

Well, not entirely, but with Brian gone with his grandma to Colorado this week, it is certainly quieter.

Yesterday, after Brian left, Rick asked me if I wanted to go on a call with him. I grabbed my spindle plying project, my empty miniSpinner and some new fiber, and jumped in his vet truck, ready for a scenic drive over the Coast Range to Tillamook. The only problem was the shortcut Rick took, a narrow, winding road that had me concentrating on not losing my lunch (I'm a motion-sickness lightweight). Fortunately I had plenty of time to recover once we arrived!
Good thing I was productive there, as the return trip did me in. I went to bed when we got home, and still feel a wee bit woozy today. :-/

This morning the war on ground squirrels began. I got the .22 loaded and ready, but while I was doing morning chores, I heard the .410 go off. Rick, 1; ground squirrels, 0. It was hours before I finally saw another ground squirrel . . . eating false dandelion flowers in the yard. Now why can't they stick to being helpful like that, instead of eating my green beans down to the stems???

So the guns have been quiet since, but the horses haven't. Good grief; at least this didn't start until the minor left!

That's it for today from . . .

I cannot do any projects in the car at all, which seems like such a waste of time! I felt queasy just reading your post! I love the Valley Equine logo.

Thank-you – I designed it!

I'm with you, kid. I get motion sickness just thinking about moving! That logo is great!

Nancy Kay said...

Look out, squirrels! Take residence elsewhere!!

Thanks, Susan and Nancy Kay; I love creating logos. It's probably my favorite job as a graphic designer.
