I headed home from Fort St. John Thursday afternoon for a four day weekend. I am down to about 10 shifts left until I am done for good. Not that I am counting or anything.
Friday we were over to a friend of ours place, Wayne Ross, and giving him a hand catching one of his stud horses that had decided to visit one of his neighbours mare bands. Spring is in the air here on the northern ranges.
Then it was off to see little Ella, cute as usual.
Saturday morning we were once again loading the truck with stuff to move from Rocky Mountain House back to the farm and then heading south. Once we got unloaded we jumped in the jeep and headed even farther south to watch our niece, Caron, and her horse, Kokanee, compete in a show south of Calgary. That was so much fun we decided we better do it again today.
But before the horse extravaganza today it was time to roll the bus out of its cocoon and let it see the light of day for the first time in months. We got it all levelled up and deployed the dish and the slides so it will be a clean-up day tomorrow. I brought it home last fall in the middle of a blizzard so it needs a good scrubbing and luckily we have some of Mark’s “Solution” left over to get it all spic and span.
