Tell Me Thursday #9

Thursday already!!! Wow this week has flown by! Not sure what I got done, but oh well......Here's a go at feeding Laura's insatiable curiosity!

#1. If you're not at the 2011 Sheepdog finals this weekend, what are you planning to do?

 Check scores like one million times, catch a little streaming on the free one hour (yep, you're right I didn't buy any time) and play with these little guys. Their granddaddy is at the Finals, so we're cheering for him!!!!.

#2. One item you NEVER walk onto the trial field without? 

My clothes!!!! LOL I know this is a serious question, I'm sorry, I've been such a crab lately, I'm trying to cheer myself up - it's working!!!! I don't have a special cap, but I have to have a cap on. In fact, I don't go out the door with out a cap. I have a National Finals Carbondale cap, but haven't started wearing it yet.

#3.  Katy wants to know if you have a pre-run ritual that you observe.

Since I'm still a novice, I can't say that I one particular thing that I do, but these are things I do prior to my run. Very seldom is my class the first of the day, so I get there in plenty of time to watch lots of runs. I like to watch the sheep and see what their tendencies are. It's a thing I picked up when our daughters were doing cutting horse competitions. I like to "read" stock and try to "out think" them. I like to have Tate with me a lot, just walking around, sitting, visiting, lying down, seeing what's going on etc. About 20 minutes before my run, we take a walk, mostly potty break, but loosens us up and relaxes us. Most of all, I tell myself to "have fun" because that's why I'm doing it.

#4. How old were you when you had your first "real" kiss?

I was a freshman in high school, dating a senior basketball player and it was one night after a basketball game. I think I'd had a couple of 'junior high pecks', but John's was the first.

#5. Bonnie wants to know what you do for yard mud control during the winter?

I have one question? What in the world is MUD? 

Notice the following map, notice Texas (that's where I live), notice in particular the dark, dark, red - exceptional drought.  Ergo, I don't know what mud is!! Love to have MUD problems.

I loved getting to know you better, and I too wish I had a mud problem. Pray for rain!! Oh, and your puppies are adorable. We have a sweet collie girl, but she's not a border collie, she's a Lassie collie.
