Hope all is going well. Good news from Shingletown! HoneyBandit has been invited to make an appearance (along with having a hot dog bbq) at Tractor Supply in Redding California on November 19, 2011. Dabubbles will also be there, the toughest mini ever to have survived a mountain lion attack in Shingletown!
So bring the kids and say hi, to "your Posterboy to Stop the Roundups and Inhumane treatement".
This will make it easier for all his friends to come and see him without making the 80 mile roundtrip to the rescue.
HB is having some trouble keeping weight on, (unlike his mommy ha ha) so he has started on some new supplement, along with his other groceries. It is imperative that he gain some serious weight before winter actually hits, as it is already getting quite cold. We are at that "rock and hard place", whereas I don't want to blanket him now, or he won't ever grow a winter coat. I expect he may well need a good waterproof blanket this winter, but for now, he is starting to grow a little bit of a winter coat. PTL!
He also seems to be of a color where is scars are showing again. Please say your prayers that he continues to grow and stays healthy. He went through so much that I am still concerned about long term side effects. (but of course I am an over protective mommy).
You can buy raffle tickets for the BAILEY CREEK LODGE fishing/relaxation trip at several local merchants. The Barn Bum in Palo Cedro, the perfect place to shop for Christmas, a cowgirl's dream store - (thank you so much Kim!!), The Four Seasons Saw Shop in Shingletown, (where they can fix pretty much anything you can break in the area of chainsaws, snow machines etc. - thank you Steve), and at Tatonka Trading Post in Shingletown, - certainly my dream store - (where you can find western treasures and antiques beyond your wildest dreams. Thank you so much!!) The trip is all inclusive, including breakfast, lunch and dinner, and whether you are a "fisher - person" or not, it is a dream vacation and without the long trips, expensive fuel and stress you would incur to travel to vacation out of this area.
Thank you for all your support. We can only do what we do because of ya'll! We are saying a prayer that the roundups that are going on as you read this will not result in any injured/orphaned babies, but we are standing by if they do. God Bless and keep up the good work!
Palomino and the Gang!
