Days of Our Lives
Somehow it has become the middle of October and the leaves are falling off the trees in great heaps. Good color this year. It can't be the middle of October, I want to whine, I'm not done with September yet. But of course, we would all like to be done with September. Sigh.
Today was one of those 'interesting' days. Went in, bravely had a mammogram, not one of my favorite activities. This evening I was catching up on the news papers and read my horoscope, with which I rarely bother. The first line read: "You behave brilliantly under pressure."
Poor Dover the cat has been under the weather. I realized last night all was not well. Checked on him a few times during the night, then called the vet this morning. He was still eating, and all that, but seemed to have a sore throat and wasn't very happy. He could barely meow.
Yes, indeed, Dover has managed to somehow get tonsillitis. They sedated him and checked for foreign objects (like his brain, perhaps) but there were none. The doc suspects he ate something he shouldn't have, a bad plant or something, but we will probably never know.
So now he's home and not at all unhappy about having bubblegum-flavored medicine squirted down him. I think he actually likes it.
Nelly watched in horrified disgust.
So take care, out there, and stick to broccoli.Terry
Winter is bearing down upon us here in Minnesota. We have several very nice almost warm days, then a cold snap. Most of my flowers are gone, except for one lone pot of petunias that somehow escaped the Frost Elves.
Last week I was wittering on to my father about the geese beginning to form up into vees and head south (although some of them seem to be going north, inexplicably maybe they go north to rendezvous with other groups before heading south).
Dad lives in southern Oregon, near a lovely river. I got this diatribe in reply:
An interesting, original theory, in my humble opinion.
Take good care of yourselvesTerry
