Finally Pulled the Trigger
As most of you know, I've been hemming and hawing about a purchase for quite some time now. First I'd be dead set on the purchase and then I'd get cold feet because I didn't want to spend the money. Then I'd see one again, get all moist in the loins and decide, once again, to get one only to have the shine of my lust corrode in front of me as I considered the money once again. Finally, Marcy made the unfortunate (fortunate) mistake of running into the salesman in the grocery store the other day. 24 hours later we had this bad little boy:
The weekend wasn't all agricultural bliss though. We also had mamma's day on Sunday. Marcy and I took all of the mothers and grandmothers out to brunch and in one fell swoop, had all but one visit taken care of. Why didn't we think of that sooner???
Item number two on the to do list of the day was for marcy to get a ride in and for us to tire the pooch out. A tired dog equals a happy family. To get the deed done, we headed to Rancho de Nelson and dragged my brother and father out with their dog while my mom watched B and went flower (dandelions) picking. There was lots of bitching from my brother but we all made it out, did an out and backy type ride to avoid roads (since we had two dogs) and had a good ole time.
Marcy clearing a very rocky and steep climb. It's much worse than it looks.
this one several times. it was the climb at the end that she cleared
for the first time). D-boy (my bro) toppled over at the top while trying to
unclip. Sadly, no photo.

speaking of fatty boobalatty! D-boy, not Marcy! somebody
needs a manssier.
the walk of shame up on of the hills. to be fair, we all walked this one.
cresting the day's biggest climb. this is at the top where it levels out.
just into the tree line below is one hell of a bitchy pitch
