Animal Friday!


Silly Gracie camping out on the slouching Chyann.

It was chilly out this AM, even a light skim of ice on the pig water. Going to be a gorgeous fall day with clear blue skies though.

It's been an interesting week.

Chyann has decided that she has grown out of her pink synthetic saddle that she's had since 2008 and now wants a new one that is several hundred bucks.

Now begins the quest to sell her old one.

She posted the ad on Craigslist and someone deleted it. After three attempts to sell it on Craigslist- even going so far as to say DON'T DELETE MY AD THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT!! It keeps getting deleted/removed. She decided to move on to Ebay.

We've never sold anything there, but she figured it out and has it for sale there.

No bids yet, but she is hopeful.

For the Physical therapy program Colton is in you have to first become a CNA - certified nursing assistant. He has completed all the class work and last week began working in a nursing home. First day was basically shadowing another CNA to get to know the place, ect. Yesterday he preformed all CNA duties on his own. He said it was the saddest thing he's ever had to do, but made him feel good about helping the people who couldn't help themselves.

The clinical at the nursing home lasts for six more weeks and he will be glad when it's done. Having decided maybe health care is not the field he wants to get into. A transfer to River Falls for the 2012/13 year is in the works.

It's time to load the basement with wood. We'll be busy with that this weekend.

Have a good one!

Nice kitty pic! I'm missing my kitties today.

Too bad about Craig's list....never heard of someone deleting another person ad!

Wow, lots going on in your life!

Craigslist is a bizarre thing on so many levels. Good luck with the saddle sale!
