about time

Wow, sorry it is taking me so long to get back with the program.
I had a good time at Jefferson.....saw lots of old friends....saw some great sheep....won a few ribbons...2nd's and 3rd's....but can't remember what for.
Our son got home today from his trip to Russia....glad to have him back and on his way to Portland. Our son-in-law should get back from his tour to New York with his band, Little Man, this week too....another one to be glad about.
I do want to thank all the wonderful people who came to Jefferson, to watch and expecially the ones who gave up some of their free time to both show and to help. Boy! It is nice to have a few people who are willing to help make this a good show for all the midwest shetland breeders.
Congratulations to Caitlin....and her blue ribbon ram lamb....she is one of the 4-H clients who are really growing up into the shetland scene. The ram was even somehow related to my lines....but bigger.
I got the local paper today in the mail....you know how Kieth Oberman always starts out with his.....which one of these news stories will you be talking about tomorrow?
I have to share this one. Front page is a photo of our local police standing with some tall weeds....Yes, those kind. The story tells about a raid that netted the good guys lots and lots of weeds...and guns...and pigeons. That's what I said....pigeons. It seems the bad guys had lots of pigeons...and as the police were taking stock of the scene....in flew a pigeon, a homing type pigeon with money tied to it's leg. You bet'cha.....they were selling weed by pigeon! Talk about good old Missouri know-how.....it's those pigeons! Really! They were the one growing crops and selling them. Yup, just sit on the porch in those rocking chairs....let those old pigeons do the work.
Kind of makes ya think doesn't it?

What a HOOT! I've heard of using dogs for stashing money or drugs, but letting pigeons carry the money so you aren't caught with the dough is a new one. I've always said if the crooks would put as much thought and energy into legitimate ventures, we'd have a lot of healthy businesses fueling our economy!

Well that is original at least.

I'm anxious to hear how it is going with the big cat too!

Hmm - I'd be inclined to leave out a lot of birdseed.
