The Look of Ben

It's another stormy weekend here in the Mountaineer state (the Ohio Valley in general, really). We were considering a run down to the Bob Evans (there really IS one, yes, and it's in Ohio!) farm for an antiques flea market they are having this weekend, but it is almost four hours one way.


Maybe next year we shall make a weekend of it? Regardless, it is probably best we stay home. Collies are infamously NOT fans of stormy weather (though Ben doesn't seem to mind the song, thank goodness). This way we can keep him doped up on his calming treats. I also give him little chest rubs with lavender oil on my hands, because that helps him relax a bit too (plus he of course smells marvellous). We also just picked up 2 blueberry plants at our local garden center...Where I saw a man who is a RINGER for Marcus Luttrell, Navy SEAL & hero (look him up). Not enough ink, though (none, actually), and I don't think he was tall enough. Anyhow. Random pointless chatter.


You all have wonderful weekends, and don't forget the Belmont is tomorrow! No idea who I like for this one, I'm still happy for the Lookin At Lucky team. ;)
