Manly Monday and a Farewell

Bibi-Chan: Let's face it, #1 is having a hard time trying to catch her breath as she fails to unpack (except for our stuff!) and tries to get ready to leave again tomorrow. She is going to be working liaison with Team GB on this year's edition of the Fish Run (officially known as "Route du Poisson" in France). If you are interested, you can find an article on the previous edition of the Fish Run here. She says it's going to be very exciting but with a very steep learning curve! She has also been commissioned to write an article about it all for Draft Horse Journal.

Anyway, she has been doing some photo-taking of us, and we thankfully have some left over from Ms. A and Mr. D, so here goes:

Me, The Beebs, of course:

Gen-Chan snoozing...

And playing the feather flute...

Happy Tommy!

It took a little time for #1 to locate Vidock as he is in a different field that is well-hidden from prying eyes, but find him she did, looking as studly as ever!

Finally, we would like to pay a special tribute to our dear friend Totoro (Toro-Chan to us) who went to the Bridge yesterday. He had had renal problems and we hoped hard he would get better after surgery, but unfortunately, he did not. Run free, Dear Friend, and our sweetest thoughts to San and all the Amigos.



  1. I would really like to go to the Fish Run! It sounds really neat!


  2. The very best of luck to #1. She sure is busy but the Fish Run sounds fantastic.
