My daughter said that to me before and I have never forgotten it. I do. I wilt! And yesterday, I wilted when I was keeping track of the racers and decided that I would not watch the results for a while because, Buser was sleeping and all the fast guys are catching up! BUT...
I had set my home page to Cabela's Iditarod - Mushers - Current Standings! So when I came upstairs with my cup of coffee and opened my browser - there it all was again. The race is on and here comes...
Buser is out of Ophir! So is Ramey, Zack, Jeff, Jason, Aliy, Ken Anderson, Aaron Burmeister! So now, they should be seeing Lance, Paul, Ed, Tollef Monson, and Cim Smyth around Iditarod where they appear to all be taking their mandatory 24. Buser and the guys leaving Ophir have slept their 24 hours and now are back at it.
I was sad to read that Buser lost control of his dogs for a while and I think that is when I wilted. He had to chase them for a while, but since his female dog is in heat, he found them stopped and busy doing other things - and it was not running! I will be happy with who ever wins, especially Lance; but I still have my heart set on seeing Buser's smile come in first to Nome.
It's already day six and Buser is off to Iditarod!
Good luck to all the Mushers! Be good doggies!
Oh yes, I was going to mention Bryan Mills from Wisconsin. According to Jon Little from Cabela's Iditarod, he hurt his leg but continues to run in the race. Bryan said something like, I didn't come all the way from Wisconsin just to scratch! Way to go Bryan Mills! I hope you don't make your ouchie worse though!
My brother Don and his wife Edna are visiting Millie in Seattle. He sent me a picture of her and she looks so much better than when I saw her last. I appreciate that he sent it. Thanks Don, you are the best! Don says that she may still have to be cared for in Seattle for a while longer.
Blessed be the God and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1: 3,4.
