Blow the girl down...

Yo Hoe, blow the girl down...Yo Hoe...

So we drove down to the dog show today - uneventful trip - until we arrived at the facility. We were meeting Emily and Jason so before we unpacked the stuff Jennifer and I made our way into the building. I led the way and walked to the nearest door. Opened the handle and was hit by hurricane force winds - as I was contemplating what to do next (while the skin on my face blew back to my ears) a trash can from inside the building flew over my head (Poopie diaper, banana peels and all) smacking into Jennifer's shin - like a bowling ball throw by an over-compensating homo sapien male. Fortuneatly she withstood the impact - as trash scattered all over the parking lot and the can itself bounced at cars. If not for Jennifer's very excellent linebacker skills the can surely would have smacked into my truck...my insurance company will be thankful. As this was unfolding in slow motion the gale force wind lifted me up and for a moment I was completely airborne - but only for a moment - crashing down on the pavement next to a spectacularly rotten apple core. I tried to get up but the wind kept puhing me down like a feather-weight against Mike Tyson (without the teeth). Fortuneatly some random site guy appeared and forced the door shut...with the brilliant observation that I could have deflated the building...gee thanks!

p.s. - Jennifer says that she's been through hurricane force winds and they were nothing like that...seriously it was VERY strong winds - no words to describe the force of that escaping air...

The rest of the afternoon and evening was uneventful. Teller remembered his job in the breed ring when Emily practiced with him - and he's all spiffy groomed up and ready to go for tomorrow...oh and I forgot my laptop - But Jennifer is letting me borrow hers :-)

Onward and bedtime...
