Well, this (filled with Hershey's Kisses) was supposed to be a "Happy Single People Rejoice Day" gift for someone special. Unfortunately a minor mishap the day before, rendered it unsuitable, as you may be able to see yourself, if you have a keen eye! I was forced to start fresh and create another one from scratch. The other one was so horribly executed that I chose to post a picture of this one. Well, at least it was able to hold some Kisses. Truly, it was so awful, I instructed the recipient that when the chocolates were gone, to throw it on a bonfire. But at least it didn't try quite so hard to kill me.... <sigh!>
Buddy is in a sorry state. His leg is improving but he now has ticks and fleas as well as mange, and his mange has become infected and he has a rash. So off to the vet this morning (to get antibiotics), where he behaved so bad I had to lock him in the car in shame! Anyway, he can take the AB capsules and get mange baths at the same time, but the flea/tick treatment has to wait a bit so the poor mite is not very comfortable. He is really becoming a very bad behaved doggie! Yesterday I was enjoying a snack of hot pepper sauce flavored potato chips with a banana. When Bud saw I was eating, he demanded some. I gave him a chip but he didn't like it. I gave him a piece of banana but he spat it out. I shrugged. He went apeshit because (apparently) If I'm eating something I must give him some, and if he doesn't like it (whatever it is), I must provide him with a tasty alternative! This from a little ball of mange who has cost me over 1200 bucks so far for the year, and who has to have the pin removed from his leg in another fortnight, costing me godnozewot more!
MamaT, this is where rich people vacation, and smart people live. People smart enough to know that if the water in the pool drops below the mid-70's F, you need to migrate to a more equatorial clime! So, I put it to you that 79° is indeed c-c-cold. Not as cold as 2°, but c-c-cold enough! With this in mind, I could probably get you into the physiotherapy pool, especially if you come now, and pretend to be a physiotherapist! But take it from me, you will find it chilly, so you'd better bring that fella with you to help you warm up!
