My Friday Deserves a BIG ‘ol "Oof Da"

Goodness gracious! My weekend was a blast and frustratingly eventful at the same time. It all started Friday with something as innocent as spilling my tea all over my desk at work. And it escalated into nearly slamming into a deer on the highway resulting in my car down a ditch and me covered in mud almost to my knee.

“I know this isn’t a great way to start a story, but I am ok.” That was the line I chose to break the news to my dad via phone.
So as not to bore people reading my blog, I will give the Cliff Note version: 2 deer – 1 in each lane. Me in right lane going 73MPH. Hit breaks a wee bit too hard. Spin in car. Go into ditch backwards. Land in mud.

After that, I was pretty terrified, and had I not been 1/2 way, I probably would have seriously thought of turning around. But I figured I was that far, I might as well not spoil my weekend by skipping the festivities including babies, pork and dog photos. The next morning we were up pretty early despite getting in quite late. After breakfast, I got to work taking pictures of the pups. Kubota was not so thrilled about my camera so pictures of her are few and far between. Lopey though turned into a ham! He was a little shy at first but quickly warmed up to me my lens.

This guy is a tried and true family dog. According to Murray, he has the most stamina of any animal ever. Lopey has survived a few car accidents and seems to be quite happy in life. And boy, do I have lots of pictures to show!

Well, I am quite excited about the outcome of these photos! I hope to be able to edit these this weekend or later this week once I catch up on sleep and my work load dies down a smidgen.

But another oh so exciting thing happened this weekend! I got to meet little Barrett Raymond Curtis who is 3 weeks old today (Happy Birthday Little One!). He is adorable and so mellow.

Thanks to the Perdue’s (both people and animals) for a lovely weekend!
Roast On!
