Just a quick "hello" to all. I will be
back later in the week. I am off on
a road trip with my cousin. I
will check in along the road with
some freebies, etc. for all.
Until then I hope you all have
a great week.

|Yesterday I woke up and went to feed the cats. Mr. Smudge my very large male cat did not look so hot. His right eye was swollen and he was a little more vocal than usual. Off to the new vets we went.|
|By the time we got to the vets his eye was looking better but Mr. Smudge or Fat Boy as we sometimes call him was still looking pitiful.[We have to take him out of the top of the cage as he is too fat to go out the door.]|
|Out of the cage and on the examination table we have been weighed and our temperature taken. Yes! we have lost 3 1/4 pounds, down to 21 and 3/4 pounds. No, we have a temperature. Still feeling good about the weight loss and I like the new vet.|
|The happy patient after the medicine in the eyes, and the oral medication administered. Diagnosis - a cold, with a little wet sounding chest. A few days of meds and we should be okay.|

Thought you might like to see what a storm looks like rolling into the mountains. I took this yesterday around three o'clock in the afternoon. It was rainy and the temperatures were dropping. We did not get any snow where I was, just a lot of rain.I am sure if the temperatures had been lower we would have gotten a lot of snow. Friday/today was warm and sunny. The chili was great even if we did not get any snow.

|I love her scarf and she has the longest fingers. Very pretty.|
|Pretty little girls in their plaid dresses!|
|I liked this relaxed photograph of this gentleman. The books on the table are there to imply that he can read. A big thing for someone in those days. Something we take for granted now.|
|Aw families. The apple does not fall far from tree in this family. Love the gloves.|
|Sisters so sweet. Love their matching dresses, haircuts and the little doll.|

|Wolverine, Beaver, Otter, and Raccoon|
Here are just a few of the animals you
might see if you were out walking in the
woods. Some you might only see in the late
afternoon or early evening.
We are having warm weather here in the mountains. It is almost 60 here today. Yesterday I took a walk in some nearby woods. It was quite lovely, just me and the woodland creatures.
Being outside like that can make you feel so small and insignificant. Sort of puts you in your place, It was a welcome respite from the cold and the boxes. It always gives me a time to think and put things in their place in my head.
