Morning all: It happened again! I typed a response but where is it? :-(
Loved the weed quotes! Thanks all for updates on surgery updates, indecisive spouses, ailing dogs (was Lulu okay when she left the shelter?), eagles 'friending' each other (too bad not male/female maybe?), new babies (nice idea to hire a local artist!) and meat deliveries....from undertaker?! Hmmm. Not happy to read of cross-border contagion near OG!
I had haircut yesterday - hurray! Carpenter showed up on time with helper and was gone by 7:45 p.m. We are short 3" of molding, but he'll sort that out next week. Cable guy is coming this afternoon to activate outlet in bedroom where OH will park during new floor installation. My job is to chase down cobwebs hiding in corners, behind pictures and bookcases and other such places before the painter starts Monday. He's coming tomorrow to go over paint choice (white, white, or white?).
Must check CNN now.... :-)
Stay well all.
I think we can expect more infection as driving limits are changed and the amount of holidaymakers increases as it no doubt will over the next few weeks.
Wrote a reply on my tablet at lunchtime, but it wouldn't post, so Annette the site is playing up again. Now forgotten what I wrote about. Sue says that the vet had a name for the condition the dog has, but she didn't say much about any "cure" for it: I suspect that it would be some operation which would run into thousands of pounds. He agreed that it could cause the dog problems in old age, such as arthritis, but that for the moment she will be fine with it as she manages to walk OK. She was born with it so has never known any different. Of course, we were not surprised to hear that the Dog Rescue place is not forthcoming about their paying for anything! It has caused much angst here, with my OH actually shouting at me this morning, he got so wound up about it. We would not have gone into the situation ourselves, so it's very frustrating. However, we've decided that as its akin to your child bringing home some unsuitable mate, you have to swallow your words and just accept the situation. It's not that we don't feel sympathy for the dog but Sue has not had an easy life and we hate seeing her bring herself more trouble.
Pic of Lulu -- her right front leg is more like a flipper and she doesn't walk on it at the right angle.
