Good to hear from you, dear venus! My doc is a pretty down-to-earth guy in reality but he s married to a very talented photographer and they travel a lot. My doc is close to retiring (I realllly don't want to lose him) so I wish him the best in his travels. As far as the songs, I collect "mondegreens" which are these days misheard song lyrics and I collect them. I know, weird huh? Jerry is totally amazing everyone (vets included), but I know his time is limited. I'm with him as long as chooses to stay on this earth. Hugs, lady :)
From Sylvag. Hai, don't know if roniharvey sent u her IAP RR Episode 7, but ur up with # 8 and then rbj will finish it off with #9. 1-7 are all faved to 1KSO if u missed any. Haz bin a gwate advenshur so far :)
I'll hear next week about my health issues next week when doc gets back from Paris (nice, huh?). I know that if my tests showed anything bad, my doc's partner would've called me by now. I just ache all over and have been having a lot of swelling. I think it's arthritis related or maybe gout (which runs in my family). The biggest problem is that I am a walker - walking helps me think and calms me. I'm also a crocheter and my hands hurt too much to do that these days - very frustrating. Bleh. hugs and skritches to you!
The stroll and conversation with the neighbors is a great ritual. Everybody wins. I love Millie's attitude of "my work here is done"...I'm going to nap now. And you had the good sense to follow her lead. We can learn much from our little friends. I'm glad you enjoyed the video. It does do a good job of showing what gibs ma puppy da happeez. I wasn't paying attention to the order of what guys get back when...just the notion that those seem to be the themes of a great many of their songs. In their defense...it's a lot simpler to love your truck and your dog. Good luck with you IAP RR episode. They've sure left it pretty wide open. You're fortunate that Venus was so healthy for much of her life. It's so sad when our little charges are sick. It's always fun when I get together with LeeAnn. We had a couple good chats and then Jeannie and I had a wonderful little wrestle session here. She normally doesn't indulge in wrestling but I had the good sense to keep a couple treats in my hands. It's amazing how much attention da goggies gib ya when ya gots da treats.
Hi dere Georgette, good to hear from you since you are one of my favorite people. I did not watch the debate, I made up my mind a while back to just say NO to voting this election. In my opinion I wouldn't waste the gas going to vote for either one. "Opinions are just like butts, everyone has one." On a better subject, Boz is doing very good getting over the cat flu, Ollie is doing well with the insulin and Greta's leg is almost normal. Poor Pussums is not doing any better but she is putting up a good fight. My sister and I discussed her situation today, if she starts showing pain we can't control or she is miserable and can't walk at all...we will have to do what is necessary to end her suffering. We will do it out of love for her. I do not believe in letting an animal suffer. When things get on an even keel around here I am going to get a cat stroller for my cats. I know your Millie is enjoying hers. Lub you much, Y.O.M.
Now, we too, are "back in" from a trip to the park. I'm going to have Jeannie over this afternoon and will take Becky with me to LeeAnn's place to pick her up. It's always good to bleed some energy off the little girl before we go visiting. The first three minutes are usually pretty frantic and then she calms down. The frantic part comes as Becky gets in the house and, once I release her from her sit, she immediately rushes to Jeannie's toy box and starts raiding it. In any case, we went to the park and played some ball. I brought the camera to shoot some video as an experiment. I really need to man it full time to adjust focus and framing but today I just used a 35mm prime lens and let it capture what it captures. Some of it is passable and much of it is not. I'm going to see if I can patch some of it together into a video of Becky playing fetch. I know it's not a knock on your neighbors to say you're enjoying the reading. everything has a time and a place. There's a time for visiting and a time for reading. Twenty three pounds it worthy. That's enough to love on and make it worth while. 58 is respectable and 88 is impressive. So long as they stay healthy and happy I say the more years the better. I didn't intend to write a country song there. I prefer my country songs played in reverse so you get your car back, your girl back, your dog back, rather than losing them all the time. It's always interesting to note the different quirks our pets have and then things that just light them up and make them go zing. A ball or a stick will always do it for Becky. I love the fact that Millie has found the simple pleasures of a paper sack. I've been doing other things as I've worked on this note and managed to finish editing some video and it's uploading to YouTube now. It's not a classic but it's fun. I'll be off to get Jeannie soon and it will likely be uploaded by the time I get back. Then I can post it to the cheese site. There will be a few who want to see Miss Becky in action. Did your sun stick around?
I have my own Dr Kildaire. She knows everything. It's quite irritating but we still run to her. I HAVE to get an Ace bandage, but otherwise, I'm being good. It's down to where I actually hit it. Still sore but the bruising's gone except there. She told me I fractured my metatarsals or something and it's going to take time.
