“Get well” wishes go out to Bruno Lau­zon, who had a snow­mo­bile ac­ci­dent Thurs­day. Send­ing you an ex­press de­liv­ery of best wishes and may the sun shine on your speedy re­cov­ery!

Way to go to the stu­dents at Glen­garry Dis­trict High School for rais­ing $ 2,000 for their school; Sco­tia­bank’s Alexan­dria branch matched the sum they raised.

Birth­day wishes to Mrs. Tonie Oete­laar Jan­uary 25, to Mrs. F. Bishop Jan­uary 26 and my sis­ter, Miche­line Va­chon, Jan­uary 27. There are ex­actly 86,400 sec­onds in your birth­day. En­joy ev­ery one of them! Pleas­ant thoughts are sent your way with heart­felt wishes for a happy day. Good morn­ing, Dalkeith. I would like to thank all my read­ers for hav­ing such an in­ter­est in Cin­derella’s jour­ney. I hope she keeps you en­ter­tained for many years to come. I hope she is ready for the 150th Canada’s birth­day pa­rade in Dalkeith Satur­day, July 29.

Let’s get right into the mouse count. We have caught 25 mice so far, and the trap is loaded and set every­day. The funny smell is gone. I did learn re­cently that the most numer­ous of the an­i­mals on Earth is the ro­dent di­vi­sion, which is very ev­i­dent in this ex­per­i­ment.

From the horse’s mouth

Fi­nally got my les­son on Robin last Wed­nes­day. She needs more mus­cle in her hind quar­ters to help her make smooth tran­si­tions.

So, we have a lot of ex­er­cises geared to help that hap­pen. Cin­derella has mas­tered the line driv­ing and is ready for some bag­gage to drag be­hind her.

I see us driv­ing in the fu­ture, some­thing that never hap­pened with my for­mer horses. Cin­derella is very good to come in last for the treats on a reg­u­lar ba­sis now. I no longer have to res­train her or show her the crop. Baby steps!
