Does anyone remember the old IBM? Back when they were the big cheese in computers? I always picture these very clean cut guys all dressed the same in the stiff corporate white button shirt and tie when I think of IBM. I believe that image came from an early Apple commercial.
Anyway, somehow in my mind IBM always seems to stand for "I've Been Moved", following how the corporation would shuffle their employees about every couple years to a new office.
Well, the actual point of this post, other than to dredge up some strange mind association within my skull is to let everyone know we have moved to a fantastic new website that Carolyn Cannon designed. At one time I thought I was pretty good with computers, but in my best days I could not have come up with what she has created for us. Got you curious, huh? Okay, just so you can see it for yourself, I'll post this last, limited time link to the new home of Storm Ridge.
I want you to know, evil Keith thought it would be great fun to somehow forget to post the link. Oh well, not giving into the dark side has Caleb and Lucy pouting a bit, but I played fair. Well, this time. Seeya you all on the other side. (sheesh, mind associations, somehow that phrase has me thinking of Pick Floyd and Dark Side of the Moon).
Since I managed to get some time from work, Jo and I decided to take the scenic way to Megan's house and the puppy party.
Little Lucy would like to wish all her remarkable brothers and sisters a very happy and profitable one years birthday!
(message from Lucy) I was doing my walking around the house game where my tail is supposed to look like I am not having fun. Yeah, right... So we took pictures after...
See, sometimes I can be serious, serious as in, "hey, when we play this game I am supposed to get treats! I am getting cheated!" Anyway, to all my charmed siblings, have a great one years birthday! "okay, wheres my treats!"
We have recieved the photo from the Monday show in Lewiston. Some of the other dogs dropped from the competition so this was not a major, but still the little girl showed well. Mandy believes she will grow to enjoy showing as much as Clem, which would mean loving second only to food
As you can see, Lucy took a down-grade in the handling department, as I was called to take her around for the best in breed competition. I didnt trip or mess her up to badly I guess, so I'll call it a success. I do need to remind myself now to look at the dog in the photo session not the camera, it is supposed to be her picture. Doh!
We are extremely proud of the little girl as she was in the middle of her first heat cycle during the show. Even slightly out of sorts, she was a trooper. When the next photo arrives, we will get that one up. (here's where I shudder)
While at the Portland show we could not resist the chance to have a mini family photo session. Lucy is her father's daughter, she has many of his traits including that "horrible temperament" Meaning, if your face needs to be washed, they would be more than happy to kiss it clean.
