Doctor My Eyes

Sunset one evening. The blue bit reminded me of a child who just doesn’t want to go to bed… My sister-in-law had someone make this for me; it’s Bree, hanging onto a heart. And, to quote Ms. Martyr: That’s about right. Heard this on the way to the grocery store this morning and it goes quite well with my overall mood. I am blissfully unaware of current events… well, that’s how I stay...

Graviola

The soursop tree is burdened -really good word for it- with these huge fruit. Already four have fallen and been consumed by bugs… and of course one stubby dog. Guess I won’t bathe her til the you-know-what passes… Bree looks rangy, but it’s just the camera angle. She’s eating like a horse and gets a good workout every day. These are for perspective. The soursop I see online aren’t nearly this...

Fischer’s Lovebird

Someone’s pet escaped and is living in a moss-laden oak tree across the street. After an exhaustive search googling we identified him as a Fischer’s Lovebird. I call him Popeye.

Guess who just came to see me?? I was pouring a second cup of...

Rebound

Thanks to the surgeon, rehab and plenty of green, Bree is a bona fide success story. Aside from a slight hitch in her getalong on the left right leg, she has no difficulty using it to walk or run… though I don’t allow any play with Badger that could lead to a repeat performance at the vet. AND the hair is finally starting to grow back on her butt! I read an article about shaving double coated dogs (which I don’t do)...

Better News/Worse News

Getting tired of the good news/bad news stuff… but it is what it is. In better news, Bree finished rehab and passed her x-ray with flying colors… the bone still has some healing to do, actually she won’t be fully healed for another three months… BUT she’s out of the pen and off lead! Large and in charge! And yes, I need to pressure clean the pavers. We have a new pressure cleaner… I just...
