Well, the Durango has a cracked radiator - and with any luck I should have it back tomorrow -and be a whole lot poorer in the process ($575). Ouch. I called our insurance company - and if I knew who owned the dog, I could turn it in to insurance - but since I don't know who owned him, I can't. And I'm thinking I don't want a claim on our insurance where they will only pay about 1/2 of the bill due to our deductible.

I did go back yesterday afternoon and knocked on some more doors and drove around - no one is claiming him. I am assuming he is fine as he got up and ran off.

Pig walking is a real challenge. I'm still working on getting a good video - it is very hard to hold the camera steady when you are rolling on the ground laughing your head off. Even harder when the girl who is supposed to be driving them is running around laughing cause they follow her everywhere. Oh well - she is having a blast doing this. And we are definitely making this fun for her.

Saturday Todd had to work late (7:30 late) so the kids and I packed up and went to the in-laws for dinner and to do some swimming.

Sunday we spent helping a friend bale hay. If we both could help him move round bales around, he will come custom bale our hay at no cost to us. Of course, Tyler figured out real quick he could drive the tractor, so Jessie and I didn't have to work very hard at all.

See you later,

WOW that is expensive. Too bad you couldn't find the dog owners. I'm glad you're all having fun with the pigs. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Other than the huge bummer with the radiator, everything sounds so fun! I especially love the tractor picture. And the mental image of walking the pigs!

"Pig Walking" makes me smile.
Darn about the radiator repari. If you lived near by, my husband could fix it for you!
It's crazy what they charge.

I'm sorry it's costing you so much to get your car fixed! That is expensive! Pig walking does sound funny! I'm glad she's having a good time with them! That pool looks very refreshing.

I am sorry your garden isn't doing that well for the most part! I'm glad your tomatoes are doing well!

Ouch on the radiator repairs.

I love the description of the pig walking. You have to get a video of it.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
