Good News For Gary

The ponies were still naked from yesterday and by noon they were back in the barn because it was raining so hard.

Rebel and Ronin did a little dancing before the weather changed.
By the way, it was almost 50 degrees this morning.

95% of the snow has melted, now we need some sunshine.
By 9:15 we were at the urologists and Gary had the catheter removed.  That was about a 7 minute appointment.  He had to return at 3:45, after drinking about a gallon of water.  Fortunately his body was functioning the right way and he no longer needed it.  Talk about happy!  Now he can just concentrate on his hip and physical therapy.  Yayyyyyyyy!
When it really started to rain harder, Rebel was smart and stayed under the shed roof eating hay.  These two were just standing there getting soaked.

I put them in their stalls until around 5 and gave them some turnout time before dinner.
On our way home from the 3:45 appointment we decided to stop at this little bakery over by the Brockport Airport.  I only bought some peanut butter cookies, but boy Jo Jo had quite a selection.

Sounds like she has been pretty busy!
At chore time Seamus did not think I was resetting the stalls fast enough and kept looking at me.

Eventually they were tucked in for the night.
We had a pretty weird dinner, but it tasted so good.  Scrambled eggs and avocado toast.
Night all.  I am soooo tired.

Well!  We hit 55 degrees today and by mid morning the ponies were naked!

By 1pm I was at Nancy and Tom's for rehearsal.

Tom did some recordings this afternoon and they were played over the speakers in their home.  What a difference!  It's time for us to get some new equipment.
I took the videos below while we were listening to them, so there is a lot of talking going on at the same time.  We were having a real work session.

Really trying to get proper balance and it is starting to work.  Little by little we are improving.
We have been holding 3 hour practices almost every week since starting 5 years ago, and good sounds don't come easy.  So glad that this group is willing to put in the time to grow.

I did not get home until a little after five and before long it was chore time.

Gary spoke to Rob and Shamra (who also had a hip replacement 3 weeks ago) while I was in the barn, and we actually went out to dinner at the Millhouse.  Can't believe how well these two hippies are doing.
Night all.
