Not Today, Satan!

Seriously? Kansas does it to me every time! In a word, the weather here is random. I’ve only been here once before. It was early fall and the weather had been gorgeous in Oklahoma and according to our sons, also in Kansas. 

We wanted to visit our sons who were working on a wind farm out of Dodge City.  We loaded up the dogs and RV for a surprise visit. The night we arrived was sweltering. We all went for dinner and drinks then made plans to together the next day. The next morning we opened the door to a snow covered winter wonderland and a bitter frigid wind!  Hmmmm….what to wear? I had shorts, a couple spaghetti string summer tops and 2 pairs of cute sandals.

WHAT TO WEAR?

We arrived in Wichita Kansas on Weds. Our first dog show was Thursday. We walked the city streets taking pictures and stopped to have lunch at a food truck court. It was 73° and I was longing for shorts but dressed for the show instead.

Yesterday, we didn’t show until 2pm. Our big male won Best Of Breed so we had to show again around 4pm. When we walked out of the building, wouldn’t you know it, pouring sleet and this morning we’re covered in snow! Not today, satan….I brought a sweater!

      • I’m so terribly sorry. What a horrible, unnatural thing to go through as a parent. I’m in awe of you. So many wall themselves up against life…but you charged at it, chased it. Higs & 💗’s

  1. Ha! Have you been to TN??? Seventy degrees and snow, all within the span of two weeks. Perhaps it’s global warming, waving at us from behind the scenes. Excited to see that you show dogs. I used to show shepherds in AKC obedience. What a blast that was, and I always enjoyed sticking around the conformation rings before and after I showed. I haven’t seen your breed yet, but I’m going to snoop around and see what you’ve got! Look forward to reading more of your stuff!
