Miss Golie's bedspreads
The last thing Betty made me promise before they rolled her into surgery was to look in on her 88 year old mom and help her walk Mitzi. Below left is a photo taken last fall showing Miss Golie with her dog Sady who has passed over the Rainbow Bridge since then. On the right is Mitzi modeling one of my crocheted doggy coats. Mitzi's half Poodle and half Pekingese, but everyone thinks she's a Shih Tzu.
I took Gizzy to the Vet's this morning, because he's been shaking his head for the past week. I removed a small tick out of one ear recently, so I wanted to be sure that it's all gone. The Vet gave him a clean bill of health with the instructions to treat his ears with the Tresaderm drops that I already had at home. I just don't want to jeopardize Gizzy's already diminishing hearing. Guess how much he weighed? 10.4 lbs. - isn't that just perfect? (10-4, over and out!) He also needed his blood test for his heartworm meds that he's on year-round. After all, we do live in Skeeter Country - and I have the lumps and bumps to proove it.
On the way back I picked up lunch for Miss Golie and me. She loves KFC, especially when they're having a special. I also stopped at my friend's outdoor vegetable stand and purchased a watermelon (pictured below) plus a few other veggies since I was all out. He also started to grow some veggies on his land for selling and I look forward to buying them from him, because he doesn't treat with chemicals. He raised these teeny, tiny red potatoes on the right. Aren't they cute? They're about 1.5" or so in diameter, maybe the size of a water chestnut. I'm having some of those for dinner tonight.
Also, while I was gone, my cherry tomatoes sprouted in the hanging basket and my poor ole Aloe Vera plant got burned - ouch! It's too heavy for me to move, so I'll either have to carefully separate it into different pots or ask my friend to carry it around to the back for me when he stops by the next time, but it really does need to be transplanted. I'm so afraid of breaking it, though, and that's why I've been avoiding it for so long.
