Well we are off to Colorado tomorrow, though it may be Saturday, depends on Bob and work. He always has tons of little details tha need tying up and they are the kind of things I cant help with. We will be gone for about 8 days so I wont be blogging for a while. I will take loads of photos and post them as soon as I get back.

My last post concentrated on my friend Eileen, I wish you all could meet her. She truly is one of those people that light up a room when she walks in. Her sense of humour is legendary with everyone that meets her. It has kept her going through some really tough times. Even when her husband (they were seperated at the time) was found dead she managed to make others smile, even the police that came to take us to the morgue to identifiy his body, were laughing by the time they took us home. Someone asked her if he was really dead?? She replied " I hope so we cremated him on Monday" She really is a gem. I miss my mates in England.

Its been a busy day, it started off ok but then one of the kids came down form the barn at about 9am, and said they had found one of our cats that had been missing for a while. "We have found Stinky" they said, "she is in our hay stall". I dont know why but it just slipped out I said "so she is really Stinky then" Dont think they got the joke. If Eileen was here she would have rolled on the floor laughing. The poor cat was old but Im not sure what had happened to her, though I suspect she may have been crushed by a bale of hay. She was as flat as a pancake, I hope it was quick for her. Dont think Im uncaring, I do care, but I do like to tell it how it is. I too use a bit of humour to cope in sad situations. You should see me at a funeral. I'm a real laugh.

The rest of the day has just been humdrum, getting stuff done before we leave. Cooking has been on the back burner (no pun intended) lately, so not a lot to write home about there. Wiil be back soon.
