Change Is Hard

Busy weekend

It’s been a busy weekend here.  Friday night I played with the community band as the warm up act at a local park.

The main act was “The Magic Bus,”  a group of guys playing 60’s and 70’s music.

We stayed and listened to them play…

…and watched the happy dancers of our generation feeling the beat once again.

Saturday Katie’s Aunt B and I took Katie to doggie school where she got to practice heeling and jumping and circling and such.

Exercise over!

There’s another sheltie in class now and they seem to like each other pretty much.  As much as shelties like any other dog I guess.

Saturday afternoon we got Katie’s agility stuff out and she ran and jumped some more.

She doesn’t like teeter, but the rest was pure fun.

Sunday  morning we went to the farmer’s market, Katie tagged along and she got lots of petting.

Then we went to her favorite park and had even more fun!

But Sunday night Aunt B found a tick on Katie!  OH NO!  This is her first tick ever!  So now we know we have to be vigilant.  Katie was so good, sitting still while her Aunt and her Dad put alcohol on the tick and pulled it off.

She’s such a good girl.  She wants to know what we’re going to do for fun today!

Sunday husband, sister and I went to visit husband’s Aunt V.  She probably deserves her own blog post…so I’ll write that one later.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  2. Fun times! Looks like you had fantastic weather too – sunny and not too hot.

    Ticks are gross, you’re lucky that this is the first one ever.

  3. I bet Katie is as happy as you as long as there are activities she can be involved in. Look at her smiling face, she just can’t stop smiling. What a happy girl!

    Hugs to Aunt V!

  9. A tick? Yikes, that’s one of my fears, considering Dallas’s thick coat! I keep monthly medicine on him for just that reason. I know, it’s probably not real good to dose them with chemicals every month, but how did you ever even FIND a tick in her furs??
