What's Up

I have one of those annoying mild cold / sinus infection things. Have you noticed that the day before you get a cold you are full of energy? That's how it works for me. The day before the cold, I actually started writing a story, and I almost finished the wirework bracelet that had been sitting in pieces for months and months, and I had a really good soak-n-talk with N at Osento and I also had a good talk with OH. Then next morning I woke up with a sore throat.

Silver went ballist ic for about 24 hours. I was inconsolable because I knew if she stayed like that she'd be unadoptable and I'd have to put her down. But finally she remembered that it was OK to be touched and petted after I brushed her with the toilet brush (I know, gross, but the only thing I could find with a handle long enough that she couldn't bite me while I was using it).

I helped at the photography booth at the animal shelter's "Mutt Strutt." We made ~$250. I saw a demo by The Bay Team for Dog Agility.

I love agility trials
Dogs can be any breed, even mixed (except in AKC trials ::ptui::), and they look like they're having so much fun!

There's a meet at Hayward State on Sunday. I'm going.

Re: I love agility trials
I have only seen them twice, once on Animal Planet and once at Mutt Strutt, but I am already hooked. It just seems to show off what dogs are about so much more than the shows where all that matters is their coiffure and their gait.

Doubt I can make the one this weekend, but we'll see...

You really are amazing with animal s- I wish that there were more people like you in the world :) I'm glad that Silver has you and I hope she finds a home.

Thanks -- Silver and the dog training class are making me realize how *un*amazing with animals I am and how much I have to learn.

But as with many things, motivation can substitute for a certain amount of lack-of-talent. ;-)

your bracelet link
... there's no extension, and it looks like this:

I used to go to Osento a lot in the early '80s. Haven't been there in way too long.

My tech support comes home for lunch in about an hour. I'll ask him. :)

Re: your bracelet link
Sorry, I bet the browser didn't like that I had no ".jpg" on there:

Re: your bracelet link
Thanks!

No, the file itself didn't have ".jpg" on it. Apparently some browsers decided on their own it was a jpeg and others didn't.

It didn't feel any more "creative" than following a recipe, but I enjoyed making it.
