I'm so Excited!!!

Cool Beans! Thanks to all of you, that little counter clicked on past the 5000 visits mark last night! Yee Haw! And as promised, a drawing has been held with all those who's names showed up on my comments screen. Geek Boy did the honors...and Deb, you're the winner!

Mom, you're not bringing that camera into the store, are you?



I hope Dorky Dad is okay. He passed out after reading the little bit about castrating Ohren. Poor guy. Well, he'll be happy to read, as will many of you, that Ohren escaped that little ordeal yesterday. Darling is wrestling over which lamb would be the best option for her. While we all agree that Ohren is absolutely adorable, a ewe lamb will also be sweet, plus give her lambs to sell later on. So she's got quite the decision ahead.
In the meantime, Ohren's got all his body parts still in tact. In fact, he had quite the exciting day! Darling decided she wanted to bring him with us when we drove into the city. Naturally, that would entail explaining why our dog went baa, and then excusing ourselves after he burped in their faces. But Ohren was on good behavior, and no onlookers were harmed during the filming of this blog.

No, Darling...I would never bring the camera into the store...

Okay, I've got to tell you something. I'm so excited! I mean, pee my pants excited! Why? Because come Sunday morning, I'll be on vacation! And unlike those other blog keepers out there, I'm not going to leave my readers stranded at home with nothing to read. No, I'm bringing the laptop and YOU along with me! Where are we going? To the Wild Horse Corrals in Burns, Oregon! I'll bet you're peeing your pants in anticipation already, aren't you?!

Hmmm...maybe I ought to learn to make shadows...

Geek Boy will be staying home here on the farm. He's not terribly interested in a horsey vacation. Nor is City Boy, for that matter, but he's being a good sport about the whole thing. I need to learn a new skill before we go. I've got to figure out how the video feature works on this camera. Currently, I can't even find that feature, although I'm certain it has one. You may be seeing goofy videos over the next few days, for which I apologize in advance. But, hey...that could be fun too, eh?
