I did go to our store and worked with my daughter a little. Carolina was having a big tailgating party in the mall parking lot. I must remember to wear my Duke shirt from now on when I go over there. There was just way too much of that (wrong) blue color going on for me, so I had to divert my attention elsewhere. I visited my retailer friend at the camera shop and told him I had all these blogging buddies with terrific cameras and I am feeling kind like the low man on the totem pole with my little point and shoot. So, he showed me some things and educated me a little about cameras. I'm not breaking loose yet - just checking things out.
This big horse head right here is the only kind of excitement that happened ~ I'm just saying, it could have been really bad. Because of my little point and shoot, I could not get close enough to the real picture I wanted to take. I went outside to try to get the picture, but decided I needed to get in much closer, so I went into the pasture with them. You know these babies can be trouble, but I guess I just wasn't thinking. I got trapped behind a tree to save myself from him. I know he was playing, but I couldn't shoo him away. He wanted to chase me. I'm not the fastest runner in town with an old injury, so I had to yell for Ally to come help me out. That big head above is him coming around the tree after me. Ally thinks the name "Weston" isn't working and wants to change it. He has a registered name, but he needs a new barn name. Any ideas?
For those of you who don't have a clue what this is - it's horse tack. This is the second stack. One has already been done. Ally and her friend were given the whole barn tack to clean from a friend's farm this weekend. Nothing else gets done around here, only horse stuff.
Oh yes, one more thing. The hammock above (and below) is made in American - (Hatteras Hammock; purchased at N.C. Hammock Company -, http://www.nchammock.com/), I think you can see the tag stating "USA" on it. I've been working very hard to buy local, help the small businesses, and purchase from American companies. It is a challenge, but it's a feel-good thing when it works.
See ya, Debi
