On a personal note

Catcher spent a lovely evening this weekend attending a farm anniversary party at her younger daughter's (Annie Oakley) business/home.  Each year in September there is an outdoor party to thank the equine and canine owners and customers.  That results in an eclectic mix of humans and pets having a grand time.

The dogs played on the agility course.

The old farm dog didn't know where to stop and thought a picnic table was another obstacle.  Fortunately we were finished eating.  Catcher thought it amusing.

My daughter's friend promised she'd bring her hairy little ass to the party, and she did.

The kids loved riding on it.

And the miniature horse, too.

There were also baby goats to play with and

white baby bunnies with red eyes

The grown-ups rode the big horses
and did some trap shooting.

Catcher and Annie Oakley made silly faces for the camera while my nearly 99 year old FIL took in all in. He has finally recovered from his infirmities enough to get out and enjoy the world again.
Of course there was lots of food along with the fun, but we were all too busy eating to take pictures.

red: You shouldn't be - you get to leave your state and take a real vacation.

GLS: Same for you and you even get a beach.

I can quite understand the old farm dog's point of view. Looks like a load of fun! :D

white: You can't teach an old dog new tricks; it just confuses them, just like old humans.

It was fun and despite thunder all around, the weather was perfect.

alice: She certainly is and we look very much alike too, but not so much in our crazy face picture in the post.
