We had to make a little trip with Abby this morning.
Here's Dr. Ripperger cleaning her ears out while Keith holds her.
She has Pigmentary Keratitis in her eyes, the corneas are beginning to become opaque. It's a condition that a lot of bully breeds, or bracycephalic breeds, suffer from, Our Hannah had it, and eventually lost her sight.
We are going to try to avoid that with Abby, and we are putting drops in three times a day... and treating the yeast infection in her folds.
Every day, going back and forth to the old place, I pass by the farm of a guy who used to trim hooves for us when we had equines. He raises Arabs and half-Arabs, and I LOVE the pattern on this appy.
It's a pleasure to see them daily.
Troy brought the John Deere over for us this afternoon, in the 84 degree heat. Then the deck wouldn't re-attach. He spent considerable effort on it in the driveway.
It's operational now, and I had every intention of cutting tonight, but doggone it... it's 7:19 and I am going to wait. We are expecting storms tomorrow... so it may be Tuesday before I get the new yard mowed.
Don't look now, but Abby AND Lilly both negotiated the steps to the basement today, for the first time that I saw them do it!
It was ten degrees cooler and VERY pleasant in the basement as we showed Troy around.
Yes, we still have so much to put away!
The daffodils around the Oscar's tree trunk... have completely encircled it...
Don't kill me, Troy and Kathy... I went over to take a picture of their Bradford Pear in bloom, and I snapped a shot of their decks and patio. Troy laid that patio himself three years ago, and it makes a great entertainment area for their family.
Their Bradford Pear. Isn't it gorgeous?
They came home and caught me while I was taking it... but I had told Troy earlier that I was going to.
Look what they drove up in!
That's Kathy's new truck, a 1965 Ford... it has 58,000 original miles on it! Troy's birthday is tomorrow, but
this is a truck that is like Kathy's dad's, and she had wanted one forever.
Is it the bomb or WHAT???
Friends, we could never have had better neighbors than these two, I can't even tell you how much
they have supported and helped us. They are wonderful people... and we will miss seeing them once we are totally moved.
I attended Palm Sunday services early tonight, and we are going into Holy Week... the most important week
of the church year. I like the services, long though they may be... and Easter is such a promise of hope to all of us. I hope you all have great weekends!
