Idle Hands

They say that idle hands are the Devil's tools.  I think the Devil has had to find other tools lately as I've been busy, busy, busy.

Moira's agility trial and birthday on Halloween weekend were a lot of fun.  Here's a video from her run on Sunday.  This was the better of our two runs that weekend.  We are in the background to start.  My instructor shot the video and she was closer to the end of the course than the beginning.

Then my mother came into town on the 3rd for a visit.  Friday we took Sam to see Dr. Dove (aka The Glove) in Gainesville, VA.  It was past time to get him collected on and frozen.  Fortunately, Miss Georgia cooperated by being in season and giving Sam something to think about.....  who needs Playdog when you have the real thing!?!

The 6th was the 76th running of the Montpelier Hunt Races in Orange, VA.  If you've never been to steeplechase races and want to see them close up and personal, I highly recommend coming to these races.  There aren't too many things I can think of that are more thrilling than standing on the rail watching equine athletes thunder past you.  It helps that you can have an adult beverage in your hand and share the fun with friends too!

Sunday Ellen (mom)and I drove over to Williamsburg, VA.  We had a nice time there doing a little shopping and just visiting.  Ellen flew back to MO yesterday.

So, there you have a quick recap of the last 2 weeks.  Now it's time for the holiday rush at work and who knows how much time I will have to post.  But you might get some fun pictures from the Thanksgiving weekend.......I'm hearing reggae and thinking about drinking rum.......


  1. I think Moira can give Jimmy a run for his money on speed! She was flying! Nice rear cross on that second jump after the tunnel!

    Are you headed to Jamaica perhaps?

  2. We had BEAUTIFUL rear crosses all weekend - I'm thrilled with how she reads those. The solid start-line stay that exists at home and in class dissolves at trials though :) It could well be Jamaica, mon!
