Finally my 17 days of work is over, and now am getting ready to go on the bird to Virginia. Been working the girls a bit over the weeks while I have been in Wetaskiwin - hopefully it wasn't for nothing. Fly is getting a little bit potty now - pups will be due in 2 weeks - maybe I should have pulled her out. I was working her today, and she is still going not too badly-maybe she will be okay. Gin is her normal self. Hopefully I won't get too nervous - a little nervousness is necessary, but too much will kill you. Going to travel out with Corey Perry and Jill, leaving from Edmonton. He is the lucky one who is going to run first on Tuesday - hate to be in his boots. Stopped by at my old friends Barb Seely and her daughter Karla today, had a good visit. Discussed about her holidays down in the states, and her wonderful visits of 0 star rated hotel rooms - places she didn't want to take her shoes off at. She then relayed a Reader's Digest article about bedbugs - thanks Barb - I think I will be itching all the while I am in Virginia.
Promise to take some pictures and show what I see. Am excited to see the dogs run down there. Hopefully District 10 comrades (Corey Perry, Scott and Jenny Glen, Denis and Jean Gellings and myself) will do everyone proud. And if I crap out - maybe I will move to a different district.
