Good Morning!

Ted, glad that things are moving along with the training of Sedona.  She's beautiful.

Hope you had a good day at work Joe.

BC, busy is good. ¬†Makes the time fly, but being overwhelmed is another thing. ¬†Hope it's just garden variety busy and not foolishness. ¬†ūüôā

Stars, glad that you got your phone issues straightened out.

J22, kudos on ten miles on the bike!

I'm back to work for my "bad week" working two off one and working two.  It's a schedule I've had for many years and no overtime.  It's the price I pay for having a "good week".  I did have a decent 4 days off.  Yesterday accomplished what I needed to get done.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Good Morning -

Tweety - Hope work is kind to you during your "bad week". In order for my co-worker to have 6 nights off in a row, he's scheduled for four 12-hour shifts, every other weekend. He manages this well. Me?!? I'd grow insane. Quickly! Still, having a nice stretch of days off from work (especially healthcare-related work!), can be a treasure!

NSIME - Thank You (!) for the advice!! Sedona is only just beginning to find her digging instincts. She hasn't started digging along the fence line yet. There's this one spot in the middle of the lawn that fascinates her to start digging. (I believe that there is an old, and decayed, patch of deer droppings on that "special" spot that must smell good to her!) We're trying to re-direct her from digging there, of course. I really hope she doesn't start digging along the fence line!! We live in the middle of the woods, an easy place for dogs of any age and size to get lost!! There's also woodland creatures in our woods like coyotes, bears, and hungry hawks (birds of pray that might look at Sedona as a meal). We don't want Sedona to meet up with any of these woodland creatures! (Worry, worry. . . ) Feel free to share any advice on raising puppies!!

Today. . . At 9:00 AM, Sedona gets her first visit to the vet for an examination and scheduled shots. Needless to say, we have LOTS of questions to ask the vet!! Interestingly, the pet owners are not allowed to go into the veterinary building yet, at least for this particular vet. I guess the questions will be asked and answered curb-side fashion. (THAT's a first!!) Later this afternoon, the weather forecast calls for thunder storms. (Ugh!!) So today?!?!? It'll be a whole lot of "Firsts" for Sedona and us!! Sedona goes outside frequently to "do her business" as well as to play. Amy and I are prepared to get wet (as we continue to potty train the puppy). Not sure how Sedona will react to the rain and thunder, though. So far, Sedona has done all of her "business" outside!! But there's always that first time. Today might be it. (Understandably.) 

Last night, I took part of a two-hour long Church Council meeting via Zoom. Long story short, our church is in a quandary. Although we're meeting "in-house" for worship, and we're even allowed a certain amount of singing, how much singing was discussed and debated at last night's meeting.  At length. It was a long two-hour meeting.

Hope all have a pleasant day today. Peace! ūüôā

Ted

Tweety hope your work week goes OK

Ted hope the vet appointment goes well.  That was a long meeting

Hi BC

Stars glad things are going smoothly

NJ22 hope your appointment does not get cancelled

Hi Amo and Dianah

As of today I should have full immunity.  Won't result in major changes but feels like a big deal.  I wonder it was the reason I've been having odd bursts of anxiety, despite things not being too bad.  Will be interesting to see how I feel going forward

Work got busy with unexpected stuff but overall the day was not bad

After work exercised and then did our church's online dining out.  Few people showed up, perhaps because the wrong Zoom address was posted in the bulletin.  We'll likely skip the dining out next month and go to in person dining out in July

Today after work have the usual trips to the bank/bakery/grocery store.  Then bell choir practice

Will be in the 80s today, but in the 60s by tomorrow and in the 60s and 70s for the next week

Just after 12 noo-oo-oo-oon~

Was awakened by pinching aches in left lateral knee with position changes, and once I got up, my lower back started complaining, too. BE GONE, THY WICKED GYPSY PAINS! I took my AM meds and went back to sleep.

THEN was awakened by a guy trimming/cutting branches that were hanging out in the road from the property next to ours. I went out to get my newspaper and he got out of his machine and came over to me to ask a question. The FIRST thing I said to him was, "Don't tell me they are clearing the lot between this house and that one to build another house!" Nope. WHEW! But he wanted to know if it was okay if he took down a big branch on the last tree closest to our property. I said, "I'll tell you a secret ... that tree is not part of our property. But it's okay with me if you trim it off!" He said the school bus drivers and big-box truck drivers have complained about the branches they hit there, or that hit them while driving down this side of the road, so he was sent to clear them. I said if the city or DOT or whomever, wants those branches down, have at it! ONE of the pieces of a branch that was cut off ... it was about 16 inches long and 2 inches around and jagged like you wouldn't believe, flew across our entire front yard and landed in the front yard of the folks living on the other side of us! Glad I wasn't out there when that piece was launched, it could've been quite dangerous! And when the guy was kicking some of the branches, erc, off the road, our nice across-the-street-neighbor came out and told the guy he didn't have to go that ... he went and got his blower and cleared the road off. Nice people!

Ozzie has been having problems with holding his urine ... 3 times in the last 5 days, he has peed in the house. Twice it was on the parquet floor in the front hall. I was on my way upstairs to let him out the front door and it was just spewing out of him. My last dog, Moosie, had the same problem, sort of; I think it was something to do with the adrenal glands, but I'm not sure, as it was 15 years ago! Anyway, this may be an omen of the beginning of the end for him. I don't think at this late age (14 years old on July 1st) it is worth putting him through a bunch of diagnostic tests and x-rays. He has terrible teeth, and arthritis in his left hip and left front leg (knee?) so, we'll just have to keep an eye on him. The vet he goes to also has that rule where you aren't allowed back in the room with your pet, and when I had to have Pippy put down, they said they don't let owners go back to sit with their pet while they get the shot to put them 'to sleep'. Not sure that we want to do it that way with Ozzie, so we may search for a vet that allows him to be held until the end. If, that is, hubby wants to do that. Or, I can do it if he doesn't want to. But right now we don't have to make that decision. And when the time comes, it is highly unlikely that we will be getting a new (or 'used') pet any time soon, because of Nannie. But, what will be will be....or more to the point, WON'T be! Ah, me.

Welp I have to write checks to pay bills, so here I go doing some more of that dreadful responsible "adulting" stuff.¬†‚ėĻÔłŹ

Braves won over Red Sox 3-1 last night; they will play them again tonight.

'Thunderstorm Warning' occurring in my neck of woods. Sorely needed. But it's only spotting. NEED RAIN!!!

My DR table looks like it was rained on. This morning, I knocked over my drinking water bottle - the lid was off and I bumped it. About 500cc spilled out. Tablecloth soaked.

Last week, I knocked over my lunch salad. A stinky one with cucumbers and onions. From Meals-on-Wheels, I don't like cucumbers, or rather they don't like me. I do like the flavor but I have to pick around them. Sometimes even the residual FLAVOR is burp-worthy.

Stars, when my Millie had accidents, it was sign that she had a UTI. After a quick ua, she would get a course of Antibiotics and it would clear up. Not sure it it is the same with boy doggies, but the vet said hers were due to her anatomy.

Ozzie gets antibiotics the first of every month to help keep his horrible teeth and gums from getting infected, so it ought to cover any bladder infection, also. Anyway, he isn't sick-sick (as I tell Nannie when she says he is sick), he is just very old and is wearing out. He has UA's about q 6/mos and all have deemed him to be without infection.

PS: It is much easier to collect urine from a boy dog than a girl dog!!!
