What a difference a few days can make.  Sometimes you don't realize how much pressure you have been under until it's taken away.  We are coming out of it now.

The axles, rims, tires, brakes, everything has been replaced and Doug says the trailer hauls so much smoother.  We regained confidence in our rig.  The work done on the rig was perfect.  Drago knows his stuff.  Took a few more days than we expected but it's all done now.

Notice there are 8 lug nuts.  There were only 5 before.  Pretty tires too.

We are spending a few days at our dear friends Cynthia and Ross's place near Falkland.  It's quiet and restful.  We eat together and talk.  I have known Cynthia since the late 70's.  Horses and rodeos are a way of life for the whole family.

There we are beside the camper.  Cynthia and the dogs bringing us fresh vegetables.
Cynthia and Ross's children and grandchildren have been riding since they were very young.  Their granddaughters are very involved in Little Britches rodeos.

Taylor is 8 and her horse is Alice

Hanna is 10 and her horse is Oakie

Daddy - Dallas on Chrome and Mom - Amanda on Betts

We made a trip into Salmon Arm and did some shopping.  Lots of things to make life on the road easier.  We have cleaned, we have reorganized, and cleaned some more. 

 We are off tomorrow to an Escapee rally near Sicamous.  Should be fun.

There are more than just horses here.  This adorable puppy is just 3 months old.  She is a miniature Australian Heeler.  Her name is Jackie because Ross wanted a Jack Russel and Cynthia didn't.  Daughter Amanda breeds miniature Australian Heelers.


Doug found time to make plum jelly.

Very pretty countryside here.  Caught this coyote in mid run.

Look closely at this picture.  In the middle of this herd of cows is a white horse.  It seem peculiar until we got a closer shot.  The white horse is very very old and very sick.  The cows are taking care of it.

I hear you, sometimes you need those bad days to remember how nice the good ones are.

So happy to know you are safe again. Unwinding is a good thing. Have fun at the rally.
