Yesterday before I got sick,we made a trip to pick up my photos I entered in a contest,I didn`t win anything,but we were truely amazed at how nice the Charles Brightbill Environmenal center is where the contest was held.I will take the kids when they are open again.The volunteers help schools with teaching about caring for wildlife,ect.While we were there a class of kids were dipping pine cones in melted peanut butter for the critters.Everyone was having fun.
On the way home,we ventured out to find where my friend,Jen,& her husband lives.She recently moved.I miss her as she has vet training & helped us out alot with the goats.She is also like a daughter to me,I always feel like "mothering"her when I`m with her.She is part of a sheltie/collie rescue group.She has 6 dogs now.The big boy,Jed,only has one eye & is a sweetheart.He is 10 years old & people dropped him off to her because he drank too much water,can you believe that for an excuse? He is a darling.The black & white or tri colored sheltie is Boo,my Maggie`s daddy.He has won ribbons as he is perfect as a show dog.She got the blue merle sheltie to breed,she is looking for a match to breed her with.Boo is most likely too old to breed now.
On the way home we were treated with some beautiful skies.They looked like a song called "fire in the sky".
