Father's Day

In a consolidation effort, this entry was added from another blog on September 4, 2011.
Today is Father’s Day.  I hope you made your Dad breakfast in bed!  I’d like to say a bit about my Dad, my Husband, and all those men out there who are wonderful Dads.   
Thanks, Daddy!  Thanks for building a maze for my hamsters, just because I wanted one.  Thanks for showing me that love is an action word.  Words are cheap.  It’s what you DO for those you love that matters.  Thanks for picking all the tripe out of my menudo AND fishing the ground meat out of my spaghetti sauce.  Thanks for always cutting the meat on my plate. I still let you do that for years after I could do it on my own because it made me feel special.  Thanks for working so hard to provide a roof over our heads.  
And for my special Hubby....Thanks for being THE example of love that my Dad laid down. It was totally worth the wait.  Thank your for being a father figure to my children.  They know they can depend on you.  Thanks for being strong enough to withstand the hurricane that is Kelly and not hold it against me.  And, last but not least, THANK YOU for not letting my love of animals (bunnies, in particular) wreck your idea of what a home is all about.  You are the best!

We Aren't In Kansas Anymore....

In a consolidation effort, this entry was added from another blog on September 4, 2011.
Boo....because we had a great time!  Even though we only got to stay one night, I think we had a pretty good weekend.  We attended the MAAC Angora Specialty show, where Hershey picked up a leg (BOB) in Show A.  Show B, she placed 2nd in her class. She lost out to Margaret Bartold’s beautiful tort doe...not too shabby, I’d say.  Also...we picked up Cimmerian, a beautiful senior black buck from Margaret.  He will be our herd buck.  BUT, my favorite part (well worth the 8 hour drive by itself) was all the wonderful information and advice I got from Margaret and Randy(judge).  She was so wonderful and patient while giving me grooming tips and angora advice.  I got behind the judges table and received great hands on training.  All the forums and emails and internet research does not take the place of quality one-on-one time with an expert.  Thanks, Margaret and Randy!   We had a wonderful time at the Kansas show and plan to go again next year.  It would be cool to go up there with a group of Texas breeders.  That’s definitely something to work on.  

Now it’s off to groom the bunnies!
