Happy Birthday To Us

SUMMARY: Boost and Ellen's day.

Today, Boost are 3. And I are a bit older than that. Amazing that she's three already! How is that possible?!

She ran in class last night instead of Tika, and she looks lovely! Is coming in to me nicely on serpentines, although still has a tendency to knock bars there and to fly across the face of a steeply angled jump, but SO much better than just a few months ago. And her contacts are so nice! Do I want to break that 2o2o stop on the Aframe to get a running contact? TBD.

Here's the birthday card from my mother-out-law--for some odd reason people think I like dogs!


  1. Happy Birthday to you! Maybe I should go down to the coffee shop and treat myself to cake in your honor (I'll take any excuse I can get to eat cake).

    And I'm glad Tika's o.k.

    And I think that bird in your photo a few posts down is an egret but it's just a wild assed guess. I've seen snowy egrets before and they look kinda like that.

  2. Eating cake for me sounds like a great plan. You can tell me what it's like and I can enjoy it vicariously.


  3. Happy B-day to you and Boost!

    Your birthdays, made me think of age (which I don't like to think about) which reminded me of an article I read today about a woman who is 80 and doing agility...oh, and she was lovin' it!

    I'm off for margaritas in your honor.


  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I'll practice some flatwork in my living room with bc in your and Boost's honor! (Better than cake to me these days!)

  5. Oh, thanks for that! But I'm not convinced about the "sounds better than cake" part--


  6. Happy Birthday Boost and Ellen! Are you telling us you're *not* having cake today?! Well, I guess that means I'll have to have some :-)
