During the heat of the day Mom took time to clean the whole bathroom and I helped by cleaning the light shades and hanging the shower curtain after it was washed. She even scrubbed the floor, washed the rugs and shower curtain and knocked the cob webs out of all the corners.
Twice a year Mom washes off the siding on the outside of the house and today was the day for that as well. I helped do most of it. I don't know why but The north side always gets so dirty. And there is always a ton of spider webs on both porches. We also washed out the A/C units.
I then topped my day by writing to my Cherokee District Tribal Council Chuck Hoskin, Jr. I wanted to help get funding for the 4-H bird shows. They were backed by the Creek Nation but today we got an email saying they backed out before we even got to the first show. So Since I had Mr. Hoskin's email address because Mom used to sit on the JOM board, I emailed him and asked for help. He emailed me back and has talked to another Council member and they will be meeting about the issue to help the whole North Eastern District. I hope the Cherokee Nation steps up and helps. The kids around here need something to do and with so many programs being cut we need to save the ones we can.
I did fit in some riding. I have been working Angel on the barrels again. We are going to get her a job so that she will be trained for something. Then Mom said she might think about finding her a forever home with kids that want to Rodeo. If not Mom says she will have to take up riding Angel herself and we all remember the saddle issue we had last time ... LOL
And last but not least ... We have about 2 weeks before Hope's Cria makes it's Debut ... Sooooo .... There needs to be some name talk going on here.
The Goats are muppets
The southdown are Indian tribes
The cotswold are Candy bars
The shetlands are P names
So what will we start naming the Alpacas??? I would really like to keep them having registerable one word names but I don't know if that can happen. Any Ideas??? What about cartoons??? LOL
