Dear Ernie,

I am so sorry to hear of the news about Brandy.  That's a tough one.   I didn't quite read when you have an appointment with the oncologist.

We bought a ramp for Finn to get up into the car.  He was petrified of it.  A neighbor loaned us a large harness with two handles to lift him up into the back seat if necessary.  It's hard for me with my cane to do so now.   Last night, we went and looked at a set of steps.  He did go up them and into the back seat.  Wouldn't come out of the car for about thirty minutes and then we had to lift him up with the harness.   It's all an act of love.......   He is healing.  The Vet said "all healed" just not to let him get rambunctious.

I'm in PT, two days a week.  Left the walker and onto the cane.  Here in the house I don't use the cane.  Can't say I'm totally pain free yet (about 3 Ibuprofen a day).   Knee stiff upon rising.  Not bad for entering five weeks.

Keep the Faith.

Susan

Hi Miss Kitty,

We will be in the mid 70's today too.  Seems like everyone plants annuals etc. very early up here.  I actually believe even though we are "north" of our home in North Canton, the Lake gives some type of protection and we may be in a different planting zone.  I'm so old school ~ I wait until Memorial Day.

Unfortunately with that thinking, a lot of annuals are picked over.  I will probably get my zonal geraniums and euphorbia for the planters and then fill in with the usual impatients, etc.   We plan to go to a fun herb farm about an hour away on Saturday.  I love planting my herbs in the garden and in pots.

Finn is healed.  I am healing.  Can't say I love PT but it is necessary.  Using a cane....but that's not bad or not quite five weeks out.

Enjoy the day.  Meeting some friends at a park just to sit on chairs and talk.

Good morning Susan.  Hope to have 6 weeks to say goodbye to Brandy.  She has good

parts of the day and bad ones.  Good chance we don't have that much time.  I take her

out for walks because sitting around the house isn't much.

Glad Finn's surgery worked and yours. 

Doing maintenance on our cars, bike was done long ago.

Wife and one daughter will go to the green houses soon to get tons of flowers, so far

wife just picked up a few at Lowes. 

Have a good day.

Dear Ernie~
She has had a good life and will continue to do so.  I get teary eyes just thinking of it all.  How much our beloved pets are our family.  I am so sorry.    Susan

Hope you're enjoying the nice weather Kitty.  I think I found the leak in the pool and got

it fixed.  Usually takes much more looking, testing, etc... 

Enjoy the day.

Thanks Susan.  I expected a few more years with her but we lose beings all around us.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Is nice weather, think humidity rises today.  Shower sounds great.

I got the leak in the pool fixed, lucky it usually takes a lot more time and effort. 

Grandkids and daughter were here last eve for pizza.  Daughter picked flowers off the

tree out in front of our bay window, using them for some recipe she has.  Most years

she just picked them for a pot at her house.   One of her sons was helping her separate the

petals.  Rest of us were playing a board game.

We're up early to walk because the day is starting out warm and humid.

I'm not good at sheet rock, think I will need to hire someone at the farm house when we do the

walls.  Will be trying to bring it out of the 60s - 70s so that my granddaughter or my grandson's

wives will like it in the next decade or two. 

Enjoy your short sleeve weather Kitty.
