Feline Friday October 25, 2019

Lucy loves playing on her new cat tree.
After more than 10 years we
needed to replace the old cat tree.
She literally wore it out.
Have a great Feline Friday Sandee!
Each Thursday Ellen of 15andmeowing and
Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs,
provide Friendly Fill-in questions.
Ellen came up with the first two questions and Lorianne came up with the last two questions. If you need help, please let either Ellen or Lorianne know.
Here are my answers to this weeks questions:

 1. I didn't eat liver until I lived in Spain.
 2. I try to be patient but it doesn't always work!
3. My fear of heights keeps me from bungee jumping.
4. If I were a ghost, I would haunt crooked politicians.

( that would keep a lot of ghosts busy..bwa hahah)

Thankful Thursday October 24, 2019

It's only been 2 weeks since Russell had his
very serious surgery. And look at him today!
He's sitting with Armando a good friend of ours
and you can see how well he feels!
Amazing man of mine!
Just proves that if you take care of
your body, your body will take care of you.
Russell has made an amazing recovery in large
part due to his working out 2-3 times a week
 for years and years! Yay for Russell.
The physical therapist came today to see
how Russell has been doing and he said
"You don't need me any more!"
Tomorrow he has an appointment with the
surgeon and we shall see what he thinks.
I am so thankful for the care Russell got 
from all the dedicated people who helped
Russell be where he is today!
Thanks to Brian for Thankful Thursday!

Fisher Creek Roundabout
Not far from where we live....
we use this route when going shopping
or heading to the airport.
I took this photo yesterday while sitting
in the car. I figured I'd better snap this
photo before all the leaves disappear.
Click below for a lovely song:
Have a lovely day!
And as always thanks Sandee!

Feline Friday October 18, 2019

A little over a week ago Russell woke up
in the middle of night in a lot of pain.
He tried laying on the couch downstairs,
but then all of a sudden his left side became
paralyzed and I immediately called 911.
I won't go into the grisly details, but after
some serious surgery and a few recuperative 
days in the hospital Russell is back home and
will have home health care for a few weeks. 
The paralysis disappeared quickly after
the surgery and Russell is making amazing
 progress and the doctors have assured us 
that he will make 100% recovery!
Lucy the Cat is now referred to as Nurse Lucy
as she has been very attentive and loving
towards Russell. She knows how to show her love.
Just look at her!  Such a great cat!         

"Nurse Lucy" takes her responsibilities
very seriously!

But...she also takes good care of herself!
Have a great Feline Friday!
Thanks Sandee!

Lacamas Lake Blue Heron
October 1, 2019
I am so thankful that even though we moved
from a beautiful mountain home we are still
living where we can walk amongst wildlife.
Many times I feel a more kindred spirit with
the wild than with so called civilization.
Thanks to Brian we have Thankful Thursday!
Have a lovely day.

Happy Tuesday! October 8, 2019

  We just got back from spending 5 days
down in the Mt Shasta area of Northern California.
We celebrated a friends wedding and
visited many friends and enjoyed the beautiful
and warm Indian Summer days.
Here are a few random photos from our visit:

The happy couple at their wedding reception 
was held at a local tap house.....

Our friends latest grandbaby....

And their darling Ki-Ki kitty cat....

Who was not the easiest kitten to photograph...
she usually was in constant motion....

Like this young Cairn Terrier Toby!

He did slow down a bit once he
had "wrassled" with Russell for a bit!

Yep....he's tired now!

Mt Shasta as we drove towards our friends
Cave Springs Motel in Dunsmuir.
A great place to stay!
More photos tomorrow!
Have a great Happy Tuesday!
