frustrating video shoot

This is last year about this time.

Mowgli running right into the camera was the least of it. My son started shouting about how I shouldn't let the dogs in the pond, that will scare the ducks, and the dogs ran to him and chaos ensued. I put the horses away then took another group out to the horse field and the battery on the camera died. At least the pig is behaving. And, for the record, Annie has been in many or most of the videos, gosh darn it. But she is in this one for sure. She's rolling in pig shit.

The pig ran away two days ago and Ollie and I had to chase him on the road back to the house. Filbert just hung around the yard for a few days, playing with the dogs. When the storm came, he went back to his pig house.

I tried to get the Boston Terriers to play on camera but they didn't... they do seem to like each other though. And our new arrivals are doing fine: Max, Betty and Charlie. Frankie, as big as he is, caught a mouse, believe it or not. He had it in the morning.

So I will recharge the video camera, tape up the tripod (thanks Mowgli), get some peas and beans from the garden for Wellington (we have tons) and try again, damn it.

So why not round out a frustrating video day with failure to upload first try. I upload these all the time in the same way. I even paid for space on the vimeo site. Okay, let's try again. Nope. Third time seems to work but I lowered the resolution.

Tattoo is fine -- you can see her running right at the beginning too I think... she's doing great and socializing fine. Thanks for checking out blog.
