Poor Sandy's paw was even bigger today. We rang the vet again and he said to bring him in tomorrow morning at 10am as he'd have to anaesthetise him to look at it properly. It's clearly infected and you can see 2 holes in the top of his paw now where he's licked it such a lot - presumably from a bite. Why the vet I saw on Sunday didn't give him antibiotics I don't know. Any UK vet would have done. I hate to see him hobbling around. Mind you, he's still eating (except it's no food after 8 tonight) and purring like mad! We did give him some more pain killer this evening. Animals are wonderful until they 'go wrong' as Jim calls it.
Weather and Rainbow
It's rained all day again and quite heavily at times. Jim's sweetcorn was flattened and he's had to stake it all up and the peas are a bit of a mess, so he's a bit depressed by it all. Also the onions are all 'dashed'. This damage is all from the wind as well as the rain. The sun did come out eventually about 5pm, then it rained again about an hour later! The sky went that marvellous dark colour one side and sunny the other, so of course there was a rainbow:
It was a complete arch, not terribly bright but you can see it here over The Deenery
I then walked out through our gate and the rainbow hit the ground near Flagmount, across the lake. This is probably the best individual photo of it:
Then I took a few more and they didn't make a panorama, so I played with them for fun:
I've been making 'Inchies' the past few days. These are a bit like Artist Trading Cards as far as I can tell, only tiny 1" square!! I don't know whether I've done them right or what the rules are, but here are the 32 I've done so far:
Here they all are together. Some are rather Christmassy - early for December! I love miniature things so these really appeal to me. I'd like to put them on an A3 board and hang them on the wall but I think I'm supposed to swap them!! I must say it's a pain having to cut them up.
Sam, my daughter in law, videoed their son Jack at a school 'music' time. You can tell which one he is. The manic one bobbing up and down with great enthusiasm and doing all the actions wrong!! I can't stop laughing at him!
I hope it works. It's actually on Facebook. Aha, it takes you to the page where it is and you have to click on it to play. Only 43 seconds, but worth every second!
Happy Tuesday everyone.
