Where has the time gone? I've already blown through five ranchsitters. Ranchsitter #6 arrived Tuesday.
You all remember Ethel, right? My best bud from high school? She'll be here for two weeks and a couple of days.
By the time she leaves, the wound should be healed and I should be able to lift and tote and do
all most of the stuff I normally do.
Morning chores are the most complicated, but Ethel was up for the task. Here she is learning
where to s.w.a.t. Hank. He has a little bald spot on his belly line where the flies bug him,
so every morning he gets a dab of s.w.a.t. fly repellent, in addition to his fly mask, and fly spray,
and sunscreen. Handsome high-maintenance Hank...but he's worth it.
Ethel mastered the grazing muzzle in no time. It helps that Lucy is more than cooperative...
As many times as Ethel has visited the 7MSN, she has never had chore responsibility. You might remember
that when she came to ranchsit last fall, she brought her broken ankle and the Ethelettes with her.
Some chores, like feeding Smooch her morning cookie, require no training.
