Ed Shieffelin Monument
Another picture from the Mike & Zeke Walk-a-thon last Friday.
All the feedback sounds like everyone had a great time & are already planning for next year. Mike & Teresa want this to become an annual event to raise money for good causes, & the interest to have it continue seems to be high. So mark your calendar for next year in October to join in the fun.
I managed to hang onto my 5th place finish for end of the year points with the race car, Saturday night. I stayed out of trouble, well for the most part. The car started over heating the last few laps & when I pulled into the pits, John wanted to know who I ran into with the front of the car, that was now squashed against the radiator, which is why it was getting hot, couldn't get enough air to cool the motor.
I have no idea who I hit, I was too busy trying to stay out of trouble. Guess I didn't try hard enough............. !!!!! LOL Someone usually puts videos of the races on U-tube, so maybe we will get a chance to answer John's curiosity.
I've been using Equaide on Jenny's foot for the proud flesh. Sunday I was really impressed with how much of the proud flesh literally crumbled off her hoof. Monday morning a lot more came off. Although I still don't have a scapel, John does have a real sharp box knife. I decided to try to clean it up & get rid of some of the cracks & crevices, get it a little smoother & more even. I was doing great, it was looking nice & smooth, except for a rough spot over to the side. Took a swipe at it with the box knife, & blood started spurting out like if you have a small hole in a garden hose.
Pressure will usually stop it, but your victim has to be willing to stand still & quit wiggling, which Jenny usually isn't willing to do. After a few minutes of wrestling with her, I had Lysa go get the Wonder Dust. It works great, as a blood coagulate, & it didn't take long for it to do the job. This morning John cleaned it up & used the Equaide again.
The reason John was doctoring this morning is, I was in getting a new lens put in one eye, so he & Lysa were doing chores. They said it might take a week for the eye to stabilize, without some blurring. So far I've noticed that colors are much brighter & everything looks very clean with sharp edges. I've also noticed a halo around lights at night, hopefully that won't be permanent.
