Ahem...in place of your regular programming, we bring you this special guest blog.
This is Blogfree/Blogless Kim posting for Bev, who's off to New Mexico for the weekend with her new husband. (Hope you're having a fabulous time, Bev and Neal!)
Bev was kind enough to
kick me in the pants give me this opportunity to blog as a way to dip my toe in the blogging waters, so to speak. You see, I dream of giving up my blogless status.... I want my own underline. What's holding me back, you ask? Stagefright, performance anxiety, whatever you want to call it, I'm afraid. I admire all you brave souls out there in blogland. I see blogging as taking a risk, like speaking out in a group of people you've never met.
I put this particular post in the category of "Golightly Teaches" because I've learned a lot from Bev in the short time I've known her. As many of you already know, Bev is smart, kind, funny and generous. She's introduced me to spinning, dyeing and lace blocking. As a writer and teacher of writing, she's happy to share ideas and resources with me, a teacher candidate in a certification program. As a fellow knitter, she shares what she knows and is happy to hear about my projects. In short, she's a great friend and I feel privileged to know her. Thanks, Bev!
When she asked me if I'd like to post, Bev mentioned that I could hold a contest and that she would make something for the winner. Besides knitting and teaching, there is another thing that Bev and I have in common — we both live with demanding canines. Two of my three border collies are rescue dogs, and I believe both Tilly and Maddie are rescues as well. All five dogs are smart and opinionated.
So, here's your challenge — give us your best pet story. What have your dogs (or other pets) destroyed? What's the craziest thing that you do to accommodate them? What's their most annoying/funny/mysterious habit? Bev will be the judge. The winner will get...something to be announced.
