Well, Wednesday I was on the internet and the monitor went black, instantly. OK, no problem John was going to town, bring me back a monitor. Hmmmm.............still nothing. John worked electronics for over 30 years, so he knows about all that wiggle the wires and make sure everything is plugged in. Nothing........!!!
I took it to a local guy yesterday and he said he'd look at it last night. This morning I called and he said he hooked it up last night and it worked fine..........!!! He said he'd look at it some more and he'd get in touch with me Monday..............!!!!! WHAT..........????? He didn't understand, e-mails were building up even as we spoke. I told him I really needed to have it before Monday. So being the nice guy he was he brought it out this morning and sure enough, plugged it in and it's working just fine. Grrrr.........!! I hate electronics.....!!! Anyway, it is now working, hopefully it will continue.
Yesterday Courtney came out to do some trimming and Martha came out to see if she could make Gigi more comfortable. Actually Gigi is doing pretty good I think. She's not laying down as much and seems to be able to get around easier than before. Of course she doesn't have 3 pounds of hoof material hanging on the front of her feet anymore either. She wasn't too sure about all this rubbing and massaging, although she did finally start leaning into Martha a little bit.
After Martha got through with Gigi we started walking around visiting with the donkeys. Martha and Pepper have a history, she's massaged him before. She was quite impressed with how much weight he has gained since the last time she saw him. She did a little hands on with him and then started to walk off..........not going to happen. Pepper got right behind her wherever she went, until she did a little more work. He is such an interesting old character.
Courtney was doing her trimming and we put Ruthie in with Frijolita because she was in the way when Courtney was trimming her two youngsters, Wister and Ruger. When Courtney went in to do Frijolita, Ruthie wouldn't get out of the way, she was right in Courtney's hip pocket. Finally Courtney picked up a foot and started up the power tools to get rid of her. Ruthie just stood there like a statue. I don't think we've ever had her trimmed before and I seriously doubt if she's been trimmed in the past if it was done with power tools. They can be such amazing animals, especially if you think you know what they are thinking. Many times you will be wrong. LOL
