"I find that I am so excited I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head.
I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain"

WARNING: I like to noodle. can't resist. and once is never enough either.

I'm going to edit and repost my Mrs H stories. They definitely need a little bit of editing. Not content but grammar punctuation, etc. I might not screw that up! hey hey.
Because I finished the final chapter this morning.
You see, while home taking care of the Pops I kept… Read full post »
UPDATES WILL BE UP TOP:
these are right after our walk this morning (Thursday)...she was a little pooped but less pooped than yesterday, etc.
please - can we do this later?
oh.....for goodness sake....
(I"m ashamed of you, mother - yo… Read full post »
When someone we love is ill, the home reflects the chaos and emotional craziness of sickbed high dramas - like wet washcloths strewn in sinks that have wiped away sudden messes or cooled the brow. And here and there you will see piles of c… Read full post »
I can't say at this point - it's 50/50 because of her age.
What I'm observing (for what it's worth):
yesterday on a scale from 1 - 10 she was about a 2 - 3.
ambulatory but only just. she had a fever of 103.8. wasn't eating. lots of drinking… Read full post »
Got an experienced vet who got down on the floor with her. Looked over her tests, which btw, that shithole vet practice did NOT send...had to tell him the results of the ones they reported to me and thankfully I brought every piece of paperwork I had gotten from them with… Read full post »
I hate to say this but there's a part of me that believes that her luck or the fates have conspired against my elegant girl.
Her vet retired. I gave her aspirin that she may not tolerate any more. (this COULD be a stomach issue that goes back a ways....perhaps more… Read full post »
I can’t call this or try to anymore. I thought it had to happen, that today she’d go up or down and yet she remains the same. So this powerful impulse I have to control something beyond my ken is once more proving empty and wrong headed. What do… Read full post »
We seem to be falling into a pattern of dull normalcy again and for this I say thank you to who or what-ever is responsible and even if it's just the way it is for today, it feels special and I'm grateful.
The Madam had a tiny teeny bit… Read full post »
she's been alert but resting. a lot of sleep. she woke and the gas told me she needed to go outside. she urinated and was able to hold herself in a squat which yesterday was unable to do. (goddamned fly!)
when we came in I asked if she wanted a cookie… Read full post »
Blood work back, no insect borne diseases, no lyme, no heartworm, no nothing. Collected a urine specimen so they can test for white blood count - its possible she has an infection. Or something else. Since she had terribly loose stools this AM all medications are stopped for now. &… Read full post »
Madam being stoic through the eye of the storm. Even the point on her head is fuzzy.
....definitely an improvement physically but mentally I'm a bit concerned - her state of mind is unfocused and placid. That's not good for a dog believing she is mistress of all things.

arthritis or some joint inflammation. I insisted he give her a shot of painkiller so she can have a good sleep this afternoon and hopefully she'll eat tonight or tomorrow morning. he put her on a non cortisoid anti inflammatory so that's good. a… Read full post »
Monkey Dogs having their morning snooze. Smoochie on the left. Madam Poppy on the right.
She's getting old my girl Poppy. We share our lives with her and a young - in his prime, 3 yr old, a boy who's a total idiot named Smoochie. He's very beloved, f… Read full post »
I’ve been feeling not so great the last month or two and had to stop treadmilling, which is my preferred aerobic method of staying in relatively decent shape. When I work it regularly, I feel peppy and vigorous. Not being able to has left me vaguely tired and poop headed not… Read full post »
Transmission died and a dead transmission means repairs or a new car. And since we can't afford a fabulous new car, we had to replace the tranny (that's the insider term, learned by fire by your humble simian). Miss Tranny cost over 2 grand with installation. Don't say a… Read full post »
Teddy the Holstein
Love right up there. You're looking at a half ton of Big Love. And let me tell you - this boy and I, we are an item.
His official name is "In Tune" but Teddy is the barn name and it's right on the… Read full post »
Frankly, I’m glad Monica Lewinsky has reentered the world. She has finally written her piece and I’m particularly glad for her that she’s taking charge of her life and her public personna.
It’s easy to understand how a very young woman would hide away for so many… Read full post »
when did it happen
the sudden pivot
without even asking
a madly swiveling rod
thrusting away the sum of my life
my own bag of tricks
