Wonderful picture! :lol:
It does take time for your "innards" to recover when they've been poked about. I'm sure he'll be appreciating being fattened up :lol: :lol:

Thanks.
I know from my father that it takes time. My mother and I would sit in A&E about once a year with him from the 1980s onwards with his insides literally knotted or something else. I think they still have bits of him in storage in that hospital as well as teaching videos. I guess doctors these days don't see bodies ravaged by TB and typhoid fever very often these days.

Axel is luckier, not many things to ravage him.

Everyone I have heard of who has taken in a rescue dog recently has had one from Europe. I am all for helping refugees of all kinds and they've all been adorable but am wondering what's happening to needy British dogs. Is demand outstripping supply?

good morning, all.
slightly sunny but heading for overcast and a bit breezy..
for the very first time we walked round to the other side of tobban horse -

and from the top of the beach -

friends we met down there said that they've done it before but it is such a rarity.
there was a lot of sand and a very low tide (we are going to go for it again today) and scrambled over the rocks to get up onto the beach - where it was like a sweetie shop for lumps of agate.
we haven't been on that beach for about 20 years, when we went round with the young from the sea at high tide. i took another couple of photos of the mine entrances/exits that populate bits of the cliff.
my partner says he may not attempt to get up to the top of the beach today.
heading for a coffee and homebaked cookie with our son after.
have a good day, everyone.

It's a project one of her friend's has connections to. She had looked in the UK first but it's mainly big dogs or they wouldn't be suitable for rehoming where there are other pets which wouldn't work for her unfortunately. She had been on waiting lists for a long time (2+ years) for a match. UK would have been much easier (and less costly) if she had been offered one as squillions of legal & practical hoops to jump through as well as the expected home and character checks.

Afternoon Campers. Lovely pictures, Axel is looking well there Uschi, you must be an excellent nurse :thumbsup It has gone really cold here and breezy with it so it feels colder than it is, the thermometer is reading 6C. OH has gone to pick up wallpaper, paint and stuff ready for the decorator before we end up in full lockdown again :roll: It will happen there are some very stupid people out there, we are on tier two at the moment. Dinner tonight will be chicken and mushrooms in white wine sauce with rice followed by a fruit yoghurt.

Oh LTC, those ears! And those eyes! Magic1

Uschi, I somehow missed the photo of Axel, seems that a man who can dress up for a horror themed party is on the road to recovery :thumbsup

Must go out in this sun while it lasts, I’m just a bit tired from sleeping badly but I know I’ll sleep better with a bit of exercise, wouldn’t mind a walk on Scully’s beach but the cemetery park will be nice in this light

Hello all, where has today disappeared to? Asda is supposed to arrive between 2 and 4 but I haven't had a text yet to tell me the name of the driver who is on their way.

Uschi, ltc and scully, lovely pics :D
Smitch, I bet you're counting down!

Sun shining at the moment, heavy rain forecast for Wed when I have to go to the Dr surgery for a blood test. Oh well.

Have a good day, everyone.

Another Scam warning!

Someone local to us has had their Facebook page cloned. It's easy to do that. Since there is no restriction on user names, someone can set up a Facebook presence using the same name as you, but the twist is that they pinch your picture, to make it look genuine.

The giveaway is that you will get a second Friend request from someone who already your friend on Facebook. If you accept, the scammer will be able to see your "friends list". Then they will be able to send things to your friends as if it was from you. Recommendations, etc...

So if you get a second friend request, let the real person know and they can report it to Facebook, as can you.

Thanks for the photo of Axel, Uschi. After her first operation in 2018 OH was told she could eat normally, but it would take 18months to two years before the effects would wear off completely. As she had another two last year I'm not sure what the time scale is! But overall she's fine and enjoying working with a nutrionist.

Dennis, even though his intestine itself was not cut, the upheaval around it and having had the blood supply cut off will have left the poor thing bewildered and not knowing which way to go (literally).

Glad Axel is beginning to feel better, Uschi.

Where had today gone to indeed? In my case, down a physics rabbit hole. Editor wants a re-think of my stars spread. I seem to be working longer and longer days :( Only just finished having started at 8.30. But I did take 40 mins out to plant some bulbs.

I was going to make a leek, celeriac and mushroom pie tonight, but too tired to cook and don't have the leeks anyway. It would be a pity to waste the mushrooms (now over a week old).

aero many of my friends have been cloned on FB over the last few years. Annoying.

I had a different amazon scam call today along the lines of "You have paid £300 for an iPhone 7. If you have not made this purchase press 1"
They were not helping themselves by using the same recorded/digital female American voice as the other one.

Axel was not the only one in fancy dress. Here is his companion, who got a vintage treatment. I found the veil on a really ugly red and black roses covered hairband and transplanted it to a hairband I had decorated. It is always a joy to work with a glue gun and flowers (and sparkly stones).

Thanks Renée. I just could not not dress up when Sophia wanted a spooky party. Axel was not that thrilled at first, but warmed to it once I got things together.

What a beautiful costume Uschi! I bet Axel thought so too. You must have made a fabulous looking couple.

ltc - doggie looks gorgeous. Adoption sounds terribly complicated but worthwhile in the end!

The Facebook scam has been around for a long time but its always worth being reminded. One always hopes one won't be targeted :evil:.

I am beginning to think we might all be on lockdown soon. I might do some strategic shopping tomorrow. It's looking as though the teacher who had Covid at GD's school might have been a supply assistant there just for one day :roll:.

No idea where today's gone. I hope there's more to show for tomorrow.

Good Morning Campers, love the headpiece. Uschi.
Dogs are rescued here in Cyprus, most go to Germany. A German industrialist who has lots of different interests here sponsors them. When we lived in our original house one of our neighbours fostered dogs before they went to Germany, The animals learnt to live indoors, walk on a lead and socialise with other dogs, our two dogs were encouraged to "chat" with them.

Another dentist appointment this morning, I hope that this will be a short one.

Moira :mug:
