Good News, Bad News

So, lots of stuff going on here.

1. Sue is slated to come home today! She is anxious to get back to Spencer (and the office, but we are going to make sure she takes it easy!). She is going to continue to do rehab therapy at Frene Valley three days a week, which will make her recover much speedier!

2. They closed our post office today, with literally less than an 18 hour warning. This is truly a shame for our community. I was in the post office when our postmistress Debbie Scheel got this call, and she was truly in shock. Like she said, why would you close down a post office that actually makes money? As of now, our mail will be in Owensville, but I honestly don't know what we are supposed to do after that. That is how little warning she had.

3. Tomorrow is the deadline for the March issue of Mules and More (February 1). If we can help you advertise, please give us a call at (573)646-3934 or email at mules (at) socket.net

4. The Jack Issues should have made there way to many of you by now! What do you think? I personally really love the cover, but then I love pink, so.... We have lots of new information regarding breeding and caring for mules and donkeys. I hope you enjoy it!!!

UPDATE: http://www.connectmidmissouri.com/news/story.aspx?id=713978#.Tyg0dWBqMw0
Hooray! Looks like we are good again. That is a load of stress of our backs!!! Our post office will continue to stay open!

Sticky Bones McGee

This made me giggle.

Also, for those of you wondering about Sue's progress recovering from knee surgery, here is an update: She is currently at a nursing facility in Owensville and getting better each day. She had a minor set back due to some blood clots in her lungs and a hurt shoulder, but at the facility she will be getting rehab daily, so she should be back home in no time! Everyone's calls and emails have been greatly appreciated! She has her laptop there, and you should be able to reach her through her personal email: mulesandmore (at) gmail.com. Just use an @ symbol for where the (at) is. Stinkin' spammers pick up email address' all the time from blogs and such like this.

We are working on the March issue as I type. Let us know if we can help you advertise! The deadline is next Wednesday, February 1.

Mule Sale Date Changes

In the December issue (page 23) the wrong date is listed for the Kelso Mule Spring Sale at Clark’s Auction Barn, Mayfield, Kentucky. The correct date is Friday, March 2, 2012.
Due to the W. T. Hayer Foxen Canyon Ranch Estate Carriage Collection & Farm Equipment Auction scheduled for April 27-28 in Los Olivos, California, the California Draft Horse & Equipment Sale advertised in the December and January issues has been cancelled.
