Fieldwork done on one project, Mommy in the office too much

Hello. Greetings from Miley, the most vocal member of the High Kountry Airedales Pack. I reminded Mommy this morning that it has been nearly a month since my last post. We finished up the fieldwork on our last bentonite mine project so she has been inside spending too much time on the computer typing up a report and stuff. I tried to coax her into posting this weekend, but she muttered something about a Monday morning deadline and printer problems. The Kodak printer decided this weekend that it would only print black ink on glossy premium photo paper rather than inkjet paper. It is now awaiting the second replacement printhead (in less than five months).

Anyhow, I've been playing with my Airedale buddies (and my beloved shelties Buddy and Teeroy) while eagerly looking forward to returning to the field with Mom. She said something about this week, weather allowing. I can't wait to go back out again, it's been a little over two weeks but feels like a month. Mom is probably starting to get a little out of shape so I'll have to help her up hills. She can be quite a load to gently pull up a steep slope. Hopefully, she didn't eat too much while working at her home office on the computer.
