Hi everyone, Thanks for pasting my post over here, Julie, so people know that I am finally back. Somewhat back. Springwater, I was glad to hear about that good spiritual outing of yours...and the feather. Thanks for sharing about that. Glad your colonoscopy went fine and good results, Granni. Can't remember what else I might comment on, but my hello's to each one of you! Our car broke, our freezer broke, lost all of our stored food from it.... huz had a bad tooth, and it turned out that it had to come out ... and kitty 's doc didn't pay attention to her problem, so I finally got huz to take her to a different vet, who dx'd an infection and gave her a better exam, treatment, meds, etc...and was willing to see her on a holiday, even though we hadn't been their "patients." I'm not pleased with the old vet we've been supporting their lifestyle for years, but am pleased with the new vet, AND with huz, as always! If things come in 3's, as they say, or maybe in 4's, or fives or sixes, then maybe we could relax here for a while now?? and get my anxiety level back to medium-normal instead of high-alert? take care all of you, Leah Freida BARRY, I was posting when you were...thank you, and good to see you too. Only once saw a thrush here, it was great...it is nice once in a while, to see an unexpected bird show up for a visit,eh?! LILAC, I am so sorry for your sadness at losing your dear cat. I do understand. Take good care.
