Maine is getting beautiful weather, sunshine and mid-70’s most of July and so far in August. It’s been a beautiful summer. That is why I love Maine for spring-summer-fall. Not so keen on winters cause I don’t like cold.

Hi Ardy, that is unbelievable, can’t imagine over 100 degrees for days on end. Hope you can go to lots of movies and restaurants with a/c to keep comfortable.♥

Well we are used to it but, it doesnt make it easy. We only go to movies once a week and we eat at home. lots of food to eat in the fridge and freezer. We dont eat out much unless with friends.

I like to eat out but it can get costly. Home cooking is better for us, you know everything going into your food/meals and not all the extra salt and preservatives in restaurant prepared foods.

Good morning, very happy yesterday’s vet visit is behind us. Danny will buck and kick and jump when anyone tries to hold him for shots. Ended up with him barking and bouncing and then they took him in back of the room and 4 people to hold him for blood draw and shots. Sounded like he was screaming. I nearly passed out sitting in waiting room, Denny took him into the room. We were told he had Anaplasmosis last year ( a tick illness ) and put on Amoxicillin for 30 days. Said he tested ‘high’ positive this year but… Read more »

Morning Jenn!
Wow! What a day at the Vet. Glad he got all his shots and sorry the one test result was High. I didnt know that he had a tick illness, so sorry to hear that.
Have a nice time at lunch.

Thank you Ardy, he had the diagnosis last year and was not given the right antibiotic I don’t believe. Amoxicillin is strong enough for fighting tick illnesses. We paid $388. yesterday for shots and exam and $109. of that amount was for 6 months of Nexgard, the tick medicine. He gets a Lyme titer shot every year and every expensive pill monthly on the same date and still he has this. There is too much not being told about ticks and there is a theory that the government is keeping things from people. The question is why. How did it… Read more »

That’s interesting Jenn and I could go on about that subject for pages but a large pharmaceutical company said, ” why would we find a cure when illness makes so much more money” !!

Denny and I have talked a lot about that, I believe it’s true. He said yesterday, ‘how much money are the pharmaceutical companies making on all the people and pets buying these antibiotics. Soon the antibiotics wont’ be enough they will come resistant.

There is info about it on the internet and I’ve heard many people talking about it. Many are suffering the effects of lyme and tick illnesses and this was never here just a few years back. My children ran in the fields growing up and never knew what a tick was. There is one theory about Lyme, CT, where they were first found and thus the name Lyme.

Hi Jenn, you know the vet just opens the mouth and the tablets gone, but not for me and Willow knows where a tablet is hidden and so did my other cats, it was a nightmare which I dreaded, lolol ! Glad he got it over and done with poor guy and I know what it feels like when they are helping your pet but it feels like they might be killing it by mistake Sophie could eat the food and I would sign with relief and she would look at me and spit the pill out !!

Hello Halley ! I was watching she came and went a couple times, did not see Steve come in with fish and she didn’t stay on nest. I saw a pic yesterday where she followed Steve in then landed on top of him in the nest! Yesterday Morty at Dyfi took out a crow with a ‘fish slap’ I read. bigsmile

Good morning Beryl, Jenn, Ardyth, Kathy.
A good job your leg bite is getting better Kathy looks to be most painful in earlier pics.
We are expecting a day of heavy rain top temp 18c or 64f, so summer I think is now over.
Whatever happened to global warming here.lol
Managed to walk Alby before rain stops play and we are now off out for our breakfast. blowkiss bigsmile

Good morning! Yesterday I was at my DM’s longer than usual handling some extra things for her; what a wonderful time we had together. I bought us some Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad from Earth Fare for our lunch that we ate after I helped Mama shower. We have decided that doing her shower first – rather than last – helps us better relax and enjoy the rest of our visit. I made sure to “share the love” with my Mom by giving her hugs from all of my chat friends and I named each person. Mama sends hugs back to… Read more »

Ardyth ~ Tucson – The bite area on my right leg is looking better now as the inflamed skin in the left pic is returning to normal color. Here is a pic showing the comparison from August 12 on the left to August 15.

How lovely that you have those wonderful times together, it gladens my heart ! Getting old is hard to deal with sometimes and people are inclined to ignore older peoples feeling when really they are the same person they were when younger and no one chooses to get old !
