Hope your day is filled with special treats

From Scottie groups on FaceBook,
Bunny looks just like that but
I've never gotten a good photo of her.

I am so fortunate,
I have almost fully recovered from Bell's Palsy.

a few pics & Bell's Palsy

Well, as we get older,
life really likes to throw stuff at ya.
At the moment,
I have Bell's Palsy.
From what I have read,
I will likely make a full recovery,
although my doctor just seems
concerned. I am a 62 yr old diabetic.

I am on Day # 10
and 2nd week off large doses
of Prednisone.  The left side of my
face is paralyzed, no changes yet but
each time I wake up I try to form a whistle.

I am thankful for drinking straws,
so I can get fluids in me.
However, water tastes very metallic so
I add in some grape-flavored electrolytes.

While I would like to get over this,
there are many diagnoses that could be much
worse than Bell's Palsy so I am grateful
that I am vertical, able to eat, enjoy
my animals, etc.

Bunny and Buzzard

aka BunnyBunBun

aka BooBoo

After losing Bitzi,
Bunny has turned out to be
such a joy in our lives.
although we've always loved terriers,
first time having a Scottie,
she is smart, obedient, easy to train,
an easy keeper.

Now, is she a fiery terrier?

Buzzard has a big coat
but last time he was at the groomer
she had to shave him because
Bunny constantly chews on him
and it matts his hair.

May 6 at the barn

Whenever Bunny sees
one of the big dogs
she flips into a passive pose
Buzzard is tied up at the barn
because he likes to chase
the birds and ducks

Certified Used 2014 Honda CR-V EX-L

Traded in one of our two farm trucks today.
This is a 2005 Dodge Dakota 122,000 miles.

for a 2014 Honda CR-V 66,000 miles.
We want to start taking some weekend trips
occasionally. Mike read car reviews
and thought this would be a good
car for us.
She is white, and her name is Bitzi,
in memory of our beloved dog
that got killed.
