Very chilly this morning, but bright.
Back to the yellow sunrise.
The pups and I went out to do chores...I grained the horses and was starting on the stalls when Barb P. arrived to check out the chore routine. Her horse will be coming here on the 1st and she will be helping me 10 days each month. It will be a pleasure to catch a break once in awhile. This morning we worked on the stall so it will be ready for some new mats. Randy is going to help me put up a stall wall on Monday. Pony will now go back to a normal sized stall (currently she is in a space that is 30 feet long).
Anyway, I fed the horses in the pasture again. Not so much wind today.
Bill A. picked up Gary this morning and took him down to Java for coffee. A very nice thing to do and it was a good break from the house.
At 11:30 I did some errands. Tina was kind enough to print out some posters for our art opening (one week from today), so I picked them up and they were placed in a few shops in the village.
As I drove around a couple blocks, I decided to show you a little more of Brockport.
On the way home I stopped at the Highway Department to pick up 7 gallons of water and got the shot below (of the barn across the street). Love this building!
Considering the rain we had, the fields are drying up very well.
Got back to the farm and Ryan B. stopped in. I thought he was here to visit Gary, but he actually came to deliver my guitar. It needed some repairs, and since he builds guitars I asked if he could fix it for me. This is a classical Guild Mark III that I bought at the Syracuse University Bookstore when I was in graduate school. It was used when I got it (1965) and payed $260. Today it would be a collectors item if it did not have the updated repairs. Who would have thunk? I have not played it for a very long time and my fingers are like mush on the strings.
You will have to tune into the video below...Ryan (who has played in many bands) played and sang for me. He is also a photographer and gave me tons of tips on my camera...now if I could only apply them!
About 10 minutes after he left, Ulpie came up to visit Gary.
They sat by the fire and enjoyed the conversation.
He made some outstanding carrot/pineapple muffins. I just might have to go have one.
Went out to do chores around 6:45. It was gorgeous. In the coming week the temperature should get into the 60s and maybe 70. I'll take it.
The abstraction below is Masterpiece moving outside the doors to the barn.
There he is....
A filthy boy!
The sky was blue....the moon was out.
We had dinner theater tonight...A meal and a movie. We like to watch foreign films. This one was pretty depressing.
Now it's late and I am finally finished. Don't forget the video!
