WHERE DID PHOEBE GO TODAY?
First we drove through the countryside on our way to Higbies (a feed store) where I bought a big bag of beet pulp for the horses. Then we hit the Clover Pool store where I got a container of Renew for the hot tub...what a rip! $31.00!!!! We weren't too far from Glen Darach Farm, so we continued North and dropped off 4 CDs that I burned for Andrea...fine tunes. One of the kids who rides at our indoor happened to be taking a lesson. On the way home we stopped at the Welcome Center to see if there were any new boats docked, and Phoebe went in for a drink of water. Things went downhill after that. As I headed for home, I started having difficulty shifting gears in the car...then it would not shift at all. I turned it off, put it in first and was able to coast into a repair shop (interestingly enough, it is the place I always take my car). What are the odds of that happening? I asked for a ride to the farm, as my car was not going anywhere, and Gary was long gone to Bemus Point for the auction. So, a kind young man loaded my 50# bag of beet pulp into a truck, I got all my bags and Phoebe, and we were driven home. Now I am stranded!!!
