Fun In The Hot Damp Sun

Why are my trips always come with challenges - I feel like I am on Survivor at times. I packed up Gin and flew out to Ottawa, however, mother nature thought she should dump on Ottawa. Thunderstorms made us circle around Ottawa for 45 minutes, and the pilot said there was too much water on the runway (I don't like to hydroplane on water either, so it was a good choice). We got dumped off at Toronto, and the next flight was going to be at 10:30 that night (was supposed to arrive in Ottawa at 4 pm that day). I decided I may as well rent a car from Toronto, since my friend's place is in Napanee, which is half way between the two places. Then the Budget fiasco started. First of all, found out that since I wasn't going to be able to pick up the vehicle at Ottawa, they were going to charge me another $50 for not doing so, and they couldn't do any changes to the rental agreement. I was ready to go balistic, but I remembered the tazer incident in Vancouver and decided I did not want a repeat performance to occur. If I cancelled the agreement and rented another vehicle, it would have cost me 3 times of the cost I had paid. So.....I rented a car for the day (which cost me 1/2 of the total that I paid to rent in the first place), went to Kingston to run Fly and then drove to Ottawa, returned that car, and picked up my original SUV I wanted. Now I can focus on the trial more.

Picked up Fly from Amanda's, and she was so happy to see me - and she was still in standing heat (guess she could have travelled with me and it would have been okay, but my crystal ball was out for a cleaning that day). Sat and watched the runs yesterday morning, and a few 85s were done (Mary Thompson and Beauty made the first one, 2nd dog up and we thought the sheep were going to be very sweet - but that was not to be the case). The top scores were mid 80s - they are adding a single into the run so it is out of 110 points. I got 61 (without a pen or single) with Fly - we ran in mid day - VERY HOT AND HUMID - the ewes were on a fight, so Fly had her work cut out for herself, and we were just able to get the shed done. The weather is supposed to be cooling down, so hopefully she can do better. They think that it will be 130 points to get in - so will strive for a good score on Friday with her. Running Gin in the afternoon today, so we will see what the sheep will be like. Hot again today, the sheep will likely be very heavy later in the day.
Tonight will be spent with my friends at Napanee, and catching up on visiting - seems like everytime I come, we hardly visit because of the trial. Carolyn and Laura will be coming to watch during the weekend. They expect 9-10 thousand visitors over the weekend because of the good weather forcast. Will definitely take pictures and post them later.

  3. The owner decided after the event to donate half of the proceeds
    back to the students. This was zero cost because the students went to local
    stores and asked for either donations and gift
    cards to purchase these items. At each house you have

    Even Halloween parties with the very best Halloween costumes
    can get dry after everyone's seen the costumes to be seen and passed out the candy to the beggars. The game would begin with them watching the collapse of society and the outbreak of magic around the world.
