The one on the left has sort of an antiqued look with a butterfly and the one on the right has wild little roses and lilacs. I think they both look very sweet.
Gizzy also got a new Miss Piggy hand puppet to add to his fleet of piggies. He loves to play tug-o-war with his Miss Piggy and they all wear out pretty quickly.
He looks all sweet and innocent now, but once we get going into a full fletched tug-o-war game, he latches on with such a tight grip that I can pick him up off the ground while he just hangs on and growls. He thinks he's a pit pull (Arrrrrr!) No wonder those poor piggies don't last long.
Don't feel bad for Middi, though, she got some treats too, but she's a bit camera shy. Every one of the three photos I took of her came out blurry.
Tomorrow morning I have to go back into town again for another doctor's appointment, this time with a specialist at the Allergy and Asthma Clinic that I got referred to today. Maybe he can figure out why I cough so much and keep getting those weird recurring rashes. I already know it has to do with the climate, because I was told a while back I had RAD (reactive airways disease) and it comes from living in humid climates with lots of allergens. One of my previous doctors told me that Georgia and Louisiana are the two worst states to live for allergies - great!
When I got home, I and one of my neighbors removed a wasp's nest from my front porch with the aid of some insect spray and the garden hose on high stream. I'm very afraid of wasps. They can sting you over and over because, unlike the bee, they don't die after stinging. Last time I got stung by one, I was swollen and sore for two weeks. After we battled the wasp (and her nest) I ran around feeding the animals, my pets and the strays because we were all out of EVERYTHING - and sadly, I realized that I missed the post office (Sorry, Akasa!) and the Pharmacy for my Zyrtec and more antifungal cream that the doc prescribed for me today - right after I got a steroid shot. He also ordered more blood work to be sure nothing "funky" is going on (too late!) Funkiness has already begun!
Now, I'm going to rest up for another round tomorrow. I'm so tired from schlepping groceries. Shopping always wears me out. I'm a rock... I won't move... not for a while anyway!
