Probably Squiggy asking me to save him. I had the camera and wasn't washing them at the time. Poor baby. Posted by Picasa

Hmm, just enough white on the chin to make me think this is Lenny. A very soapy and unhappy Lenny. Tom did the washing. I just clipped butt hair and took pictures, in between cleaning cages. Posted by Picasa

Montgomery looking for a way out. We was pretty good over all. Posted by Picasa

Ah Piggie bath time. Mortimore unhappy with the whole idea... Posted by Picasa

What a weekend.... Happy Birthday Tom

Ok, so I'm a couple days late. We were busy...

The celebration began on Friday, Tom's actual birthday.
He worked and so did I.... I picked up binoculars that he wanted and then in the RAIN of the century, we went to Greenfield Village with Paul and his sister Elaine for trick or treating and some other spooky stuff.
The evening would have been awesome without the rain. Even though, we all had umbrellas and they gave out snack things every 1/4 mile or so around the village. There were spooking things in windows and about a million carved pumkens with candles lighting the pathways, they were run over by walkers, strollers and people who could not see because of the giant umbrellas everywhere and the rain.
Ronald McDonald - or a rather short version of him was there and they were giving out those COOKIES, that you never see anymore in the restaurants. We also got Ty Beanie Baby black cats. They were so cute, and rather wet.
Tried to take a couple pictures and the batteries died in the Sony camera. Did not want to drag the big camera in the rain and the 2 tons of clothes we were wearing to stay warm and dry.

Saturday began with baths for all fat piggies and clean cages. It took all morning. Lenny and Squiggy also had hair shortening. Oh the long butt hair.....
Then they all received revolution preventative mite and flea treatment.

Saturday night was the secret trip to Second City comedy club in Novi. I emailed most people inviting them, and I'm sorry I didn't get to most of you sooner. I had just realized that it was sooo close and convenient. Just don't get excited about eating at that restaurant. Needless to say, Andiamo has good food, but crappy service and too expensive.

Too many other places to eat in Novi to waste time and money. Oh our biggest complaint the BAD LOUD JAZZ 3 some. Oh they were horrible. We complained to the water guy. He agreed they were too loud.

Once again the picture loading ability does not want to work for me.
I guess I will post them in front of this post... darn.

Vet Check

Took Winslow to the vet today.
He is doing well. Still had some bad antibodies and stuff of his Snot slide, but not as bad as last time. Think he is mostly just got fall allergies... or just his permanent allergies.

He KNEW he was at the vet and got a little upset with me. He rumbled in his sleeping bag, and refused to come out of the carrier.

The vet techs were at lunch, so I held him for the exams. I have some teeth indents on my left hand, but I had no bleeding.

We clipped his toenails (one bled a little) and then I got some revolution to use as a preventive messure. I'm not sure if anyone has mites, or anything, but the vet said he has been doing a once a year treatment on all his guinea pigs, so it doesn't hurt. I got the stuff, just need Tom's help to give it to them.

Applied for a couple jobs and REALLY wish I lived closer to Lansing for one job I'd like a lot.
4-H youth agent for Ingham county. Too bad it is soooo far away. I'd have to live there to do it. Considering that Tom goes to Sterling Heights everyday now for work, isn't going to help that situation.
No moving for us...

Ok, I tried to get this stupid thing to do a regular post and it just would not do the darn pictures, so it will just have to be the seperate posts again. If ever there was a show duck, here he is. Check out the wild Feathers on his head. Yes, those are just feathers, or at least we are pretty sure. He was floating in the shallow end of the pond, and no other ducks like him were around. Posted by Picasa

This duck is a little confused about what kind of duck he is... We think a mallard got some other kind of duck.... Posted by Picasa

Tom really liked this one. He is very much a mixture duck. Part Mallard and part everything else... Posted by Picasa

There were several strange ducks, this is one. All brown shades. I don't know what kind, ask Tom's dad.. Posted by Picasa

These two were out in the middle of the pond most of the time. Everyone stayed clear of them... Posted by Picasa

The swans were really pretty. Can you see the water dropping from his beak???  Posted by Picasa

Tom and this goose were sort of having a conversation. It even hissed at him. I kept saying put your hand out so I can focus. He said no way, I'd like to keep my fingers. Posted by Picasa

The seagulls were fighting over something, it floated - I think - cause one dropped it and this one got it and flew away. Not quite sure what it is, think a tomatoe would squish more??/ Posted by Picasa

Yes it has been days

And no I really don't have any pictures...
I spent that weekend taking a million pictures of horses and people and really am not in the mood to take pictures right now.

I'm getting depressed at my lovely crappy paying job and the weather is going to make it all worse.

Took the Jeep in to get the tires fixed - have that free for life thing on them. Not the tires, it is the RIMS.... OH MY GOD - thanks to aluminum - DON'T GET THE ALUMINUM RIMS. Tell them to take them off your car. They rust, get gunky and just let all the air leak out the sides of the rims.

I almost wound up with black steel NASCAR rims on the Jeep until the guy started looking harder and found something more simple and even less expensive. Take the Jeep back this coming week to get it fixed. (Oh, the Chrysler same rims that are on the Jeep are like $400 a piece- how you like them apples?)

Been cranky, not absolutely sure why. Got a couple ideas, but you don't want to hear all of them. Try to have a nice weekend while I spend it at work.

Happy October and man am I tired...

Thought I would catch people up...

This weekend I was soo busy I don't know how I'm going to make it threw work today.???

-I went to the Leniway (sp) county fair grounds to shoot horse show pictures in the second ring. Would you believe Scott Weisler asked me to help.. Yes, I am getting paid. It depends on how many people buy pictures.... Anyway - I'll put up the web site when he gets around to uploading them. Too many people there to sell all at the show.
BTW- it was Regionals for the MIHA. Michigan Interscholastic Horsman Association??

Both days, it was a 1:45 minute drive both ways. It rained off and on all day Saturday and that sucked. OH well, Sunday the weather was great and the trail class pictures look really good.

-Court, got pushed back to october. YUCK... Opps, I have to email the laywer..

-Job, Still work at Ritz, get to work 10 hours today... September is a bad month for sales...

-Piggies, everyone is mostly ok. Winslow is on medication again and not happy. Although, he isn't fighting about taking as much as he did a week ago. More medication in him than on him.

-Paintball, missed this weekend as I was at the horse show and Tom didn't want to play in the mud. The weather was awsome on Sunday, but the mud from Saturday rain was probably not that fun to play in. Almost all our friends had other plans anyway.

-oh yeah - School - Looks like I'll be finishing my Masters Degree this Semester... I just have to pay the school... Hmm, they might like that. The class isn't that bad - just a lot of writing. Speaking of which, I'd better run.
