a video blog from Tim

I heard Tim chattering away in his shop today and wondered about the long conversation he was having with the foster dogs. What were they talking about? Turns out he was video-blogging. My resourceful guy. Here he talks about the barn raising and why he's looking forward to having a place for the dogs to wrestle besides under his feet while he carves (And YES, that's a sneak-video-peek of new arrival Daisy May!)



BARN PROGRESS: We are currently $4900 away from the big 10K matching gift challenge that Tana Madrigal made the first of September. Not bad! We have these barn raisers to thank for getting us this far: Sara Hughes, Nafija Mujic, Sharon Logan-Smith, Lindsey Wetterhahn, Virginia Kelly, Elizabeth Richards, Darlene Kenney, Will Stearman, Michelle Harrington, Sandra Barker, Kristin Tassin, Lisa Wolverton, Laurie Metzger, Jackie Tracy, Tammy Chang, Lindsey Morris & Bryan Klavitte, John F. Hill, Altria (Matching gift for Jennifer Al Mo) and Salvito - who sent us Euro dollars (!) - in memory of Lulu, from her sister Stormy. Thank you big hearts! We're so very grateful for your help.

I watched the entire blog only to realize at some point I had tuned out Tim and was smilling at the goofy puppy play! Sorry Tim! I rewatched in order to make sure I heard your important message!

Now Tim, you know if those kids had 50 acres, they would still prefer to play at your feet!! silly

Hey Daisy,

So cool, you're rolling in 'designer' wood chips. You look so good there. I heard procrastination on the voice of my 'GodPa'. He really wanted to capture your play MORE than he wanted to 'chip-away'. Some how, I thing the 'gang' will expand to fill the space available.

Keep your dancing going and I'll check back,
Boris

BTW Godma, check your mail - my folks's confirmed BOTH their employers match donations to Bad Rap.

Playing right under our momma's feet keeps her on her toes! Wouldn't want her to get old, would we?

Domi, the therapy dog, has passed to the Bridge this weekend. Our blog contains her last letter to her friends. Please come to visit. It would mean so much to our momma and then go to Domi's blog to offer condolences. Momma is crying a lot today.

Okay, you've made some good points - maybe they would rather play at my feet than run around on fifty acres if they had it. Hmmmmmm.... but then I would be able to walk 'em back to the barn with Donna so that they could roll around at HER feet! Once I had my fill of course.

Dang, Tim's work blows me away. From the line quality of his drawings to the crisp, clean details of the actual carvings. SO AMAZING.
