The Next Big Trip

Me and my sister, Pat, in June 2012
I love that picture for so many reasons:
  • It was my 50th birthday
  • I had a Piglet birthday cake
  • My sister's visit from Oakville, Ontario was a complete surprise to me 
  • Pat and I both look pretty and healthy -- and so much alike!

Not at all a WELL cat.

Elly
This poor cat. She's only seven-and-a-half years old, but she has the body of a thirteen-year-old cat. In fact, when I brought her in last week, the vet, after a quick examination, assumed Elly was a teenager. I had brought her in because she'd been peeing around the house, had diarrhea and she'd been vomitting on a daily (sometimes twice-daily) basis.

Dog Days of Summer

"Do you smell what I smell?"
Much as I love our forest and the pathways near home, one can grow tired of the same old thing every dog-gone day. It doesn't seem to bother Kane -- there's always something new to smell -- but I like a little variety.

Fiction Friday: Out of the Frying Pan

Things improved slightly over the following weeks. Bettany was better about making dinner and pitching in to keep the house clean, but she still had no job and hadn't gone down to register for welfare.

I girded my loins to talk to her one night after Michael had gone to bed.

A Hot Day in a Cool Place

If you look at the water in the foreground, you can see two currents meeting each other and creating lots of turmoil.
Best thing about retirement: you don't have to wait for a weekend. Earlier this week -- on a Tuesday! -- we visited friends Yves and Paula who live in a gorgeous condo on the St. Lawrence River. They took us out for a personal tour of the Thousand Islands.
