So far, I have two completed voice overs, done and delivered and waiting to fall into the timeline. Tomorrow, I have an over-Skype 'audition' with another fellow. A friend's brother has one of the quotes he is working on. Yet another is in the process of finding time to record his Southern accent for me. I just sent two of the quotes to an old friend for him and his younger brother to fight over. :D
I am really, really excited... :D
Update 2: Snip
Yes...the horse qualifies for an update. He's a stinker. Like normal...
He just about ran away with me today. I did manage to get him stopped using the one-rein stop technique (barely). He's been tossing his head again. He actually didn't do as much of it today as he had done the last few rides. When I went to Smith's Tuesday I ended up talking with a ferrier whose wife is a vet--and he told me that horses tend to do that when their teeth need to be 'floated' (or ground down). I'll keep that in mind, but I'm going to continue to observe Snip's behavior before I pick up the phone; especially since it wasn't as bad today as it was yesterday and yesterday it didn't seem as bad as the time before...
I got off both yesterday and today and gave him a serious nose to nose scolding. Not that it does any good--but when I'm feeling irascible (like I have the last couple days), it makes me feel better. It also keeps me from wrapping the reins around his head in fury. (Doesn't help anything and it really doesn't make me feel any better.)
Since last I wrote about the fence (I think)...I got the first section wired, took down another section of chainlink, and built another H-frame and planted a corner post. The latter three is what I did today. I got a sunburned nose today because the wind was honking so hard that there was no way my hat would have stayed on--so I went hatless. At one point, somebody in a green pickup drove by and waved at me. I'm pretty sure it was Tommy. :)
I am not moving nearly as fast as I would like to on this fence project. I'm working steady (when I do get over there--which has been twice this week), but I just can't seem to work very fast. I'm simply wearing out too fast. By the time I've been over there for 45 minutes my arms feel so heavy. I don't know what in the world is wrong with me...if you can't tell, I'm slightly frustrated. Normally, I can work on fence for several hours straight without feeling like I'm ready to keel over, but not lately. Anyways, I'm just going to keep right on plugging along--even if it takes me twice as long as I think it should, the job will get done.
