Charlie is at his weekly acupuncture appointment. I’ll have to go pick him up when they call me here in a bit.
I wanted to tell you what silly thing happened to me yesterday. I had my reading glasses on as I’d just gotten up to do something and forgot about them being on. I usually perch them up on my head, but I’d forgotten.
I walked toward the kitchen and swore I saw a snake coiled on the floor. When I took off the reading glasses, I saw that it was just the cord I’d used to charge up my Dyson handheld vacuum.
Like to scared myself half to death there. I have a great fear of snakes. And mice and cockroaches. Haven’t had to deal with any of those in some years, but the fear is still there and quite strong.
Last week I got an emailed newsletter from the rescue group where I got Miss Ivy Lou.
Kelly, the woman who helped me adopt Ivy, was rescuing a dog in a wheelchair.
She was having to have a ramp built for him and had already knocked out a window to create a door for Gabe at her home. She hopes to bring Gabriel home by March.
But she needed the funds for the materials. I donated $25 because she’d helped me get this crazy cat that gives me such joy everyday. And of course I want to see disabled animals get rescued and given a home.
Animal Aid Rescue of Tulsa has been saving injured and sick animals since 1961. They think Gabe was hit by a car and the back half of his body. He is currently being taken to physical therapy and acupuncture treatments. He is around three years old.
There may come a time when Charlie needs one of these wheelchairs for dogs.
As Charlie is gone and not there to snap at her, Ivy is in his spot. He would be beside himself if he saw her all curled up on the end of the recliner snoozing away.
Watched another episode of Vera last night. I guess I’ll have to figure out a way to get the several years I missed. But as I’ve already gotten to the seventh season, I’ll wait until I’m all the way through and then check into that.
One of you sent me a TV interview Vera did. I so enjoyed it. Vera told the TV newscaster that she found her hat in a fishing shop.
When I envision Vera in my head, I always see her with that fishing hat pulled down over her hair. Seems to suit her somehow.
