Thank you Roady. My FIL is a good man and well loved. He also produced wonderful sons.
. So far, he is still in good shape, and quite active. He only quit riding about 2-3 years ago but still spends as much time as possible mucking about at the farm.
Pambam - yes, I do notice how the weeks feel shorter as I get older. It makes you want to embrace every moment of every day.
Nicker - good luck with all your prep. Put on some good music and cut away. The good news with laminated materials is that you usually only have to do it once and can then reuse. Next week will be busy for me as we have PST interviews. New booking system allows for 36 time slots, but I have almost 300 kids. Needless to say, I am seeing a lot of parents this week and next on alternative nights and doing lots of phone interviews. It is good to touch base with parents though. By the time DS and I go to San Diego in November, I will be ready for a break!
Still hoping to take Koolio to the stable in early November. Not much point doing it now with interviews on the horizon.
Have a great weekend everyone!
