DVDs 25% Off!

Not very subtle, hey?  Apologies, but I was convinced by some well-motivated smooth talkers that some of you really would want to know that all my DVDs are 25% off until next Monday. So there, I did it, the woman who would flunk out of marketing class on the first day. Whew. Okay, now to the really important stuff….

It’s all about getting ready to go on a long trip right now, from seminar prep (just getting all my movies on a thumb drive is not small task!) to training new farm sitters to writing out instructions to, oh yeah, cleaning out the frig. [Ack, is that a new life form covering the yogurt?] If you’re in the same boat, check out the comments to a blog I wrote on preparing for a big trip without your dog. I hope my comments are helpful, but I’d also advise you to check out the reader’s comments, they are invaluable. As usual, you all come through with an impressive body of knowledge and good advice.

I’ve pre-posted a fun video that will be published this Thursday, hope you enjoy it. It should go out right around when Jim and I set down in Scotland. After I get over leaving Willie and Sushi (Ack, I am so bad at this), it’ll be wonderful to get back to my roots. My ancestors are English, Scottish and Welsh, and the first time I went to Scotland I got off the plane and thought: “Everyone looks like me! No wait, I look like everyone else!” Same square face and, oh so regrettably, short, stocky legs. All the better for scaling the hills of the highlands?

Willie had a great PT session today, 20 min on the treadmill and a re-fit of his  hobbles for when we get back. He doesn’t seem to mind them at all, pays them no attention, and now that his surgery is long past, they are easy to get on. Objectively, and, of course, scientifically, I think he looks rather elegant in them myself. I’m just saying.

    (this isn’t about dogs)
    so the reason that I have short legs is because of my Scottish background?
    who ever knew!
    say ‘hi” to the Isle of Skye for me.

    I’m looking forward to seeing you in Scotland this weekend!

    Willie does look elegant :)
    It’s been wonderful to read about his road to recovery.

    I won’t be able to get to Scotland, unfortunately – Sophy is not being very helpful about timing her season this cycle! Hope you have a wonderful trip, but be warned, the weather here is very wet and windy at the moment!

    I laughed at your reaction to Scotland – because I had the very same one! My ancestors are Scottish and English – there is even a castle with my name in Scotland. I didn’t realize how very Scottish I look until I saw how much I resemble the local folk. In Georgia, there is SO much more diversity in looks – it was eye-opening.
