    Last round of disc league this season. Made the board at 22nd for $5.
    Now I'm hungry.
    I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.
    Lucky me. Lucky mud.

    I snort luke warm salty water up each nostril as well as gargling the same way as far down the throat as far as possible .

    I also find that physical exercise frees up the throat .

    Belated Happy Birthday to Matt and I hope that Babe gets rid of that sore throat. Lots of colds and coughs making the rounds up here now that school is back in. Next will be Thanksgiving on October 9th as folks congregate and mingle to share the ritual of holiday food. It is usually good for a new round of illnesses.

    On my days off and planning to get the domestic work tended and then enjoy some time with the horses as it looks like a lovely autumn day. May start with a coffee and a short ride on Threebee. The vacuuming will wait for a short bit, I am sure.

    Ups and downs making the rounds. Had to cancel a Friday dinner engagement as my companion was ill with a cold and we did not want to subject the dinner guest to the risk of catching it.

    Made it to the concert of The Hip Tribute Band last night though, a fund raiser for the National Special Olympics to which my friend's son is going for the swimming next summer in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
    Plans are for us to attend as well so some travel plans for late July-early August of 2018.

    A couple of fine autumn days here with temps that have not killed but at least slowed the black flies so I was able to work with each of the horses. Both of my two year old QH fillies are now officially started.
    I have sat upon their backs and had them shift their feet a few paces without drama. I am very pleased at their good starts and have no need to rush them so will proceed gently at the pace that suits each as they are of quite different natures.

    I have been trying to decide if I should spend some of my free time writing my novel or practicing my computer programming.

    Which one pleases you the most? Satisfaction provides strong motivation.

    Alternately, Babe offers a good suggestion.

    Thanks! If I get bored or sidetracked with one I can move onto the other and repeat the process until both are done.

    It is hard to say which one pleases me the best but if I had to choose one it would be writing my novel.

    Why don't you just write a novel about practicing computer programming? Two birds with one stone and then you'll have time for a beer.

    Thanks! I have been thinking about doing that myself but I want to focus on my medieval fantasy novel first.

    It's certainly magical! I went for a quiet beer after work, next thing I know I'm at a beer festival in a pub 40 miles away with a band playing Beatles covers! Just got home, fucked again and we have a college open day tomorrow where I'll be blowing shit up performing educational chemistry demonstrations in about 9 hours

    Just got home after a (first ever) school reunion.
    People I was at school (last year of grammar schools in my town) with from '67-'72, most of whom I haven't seen or heard of since we left.
    Large numbers that not only did I not recognise but couldn't remember at all (names/ faces/ interaction)...
    On t'other hand, some that I do (mostly fondly) remember.

    Did you have fun?

    I remember my GRAMMAR school reunion. 1-8 I was the "girl with the Mom who talked funny from some foreign place". I left it knowing that while I didn't have much growing up, I had intelligence, a character of hard work, a huge musical self taught ability, and I knew how to find joy in life.

    They may have bullied me.

    In the end, I was the happiest one there!

    Sounds nice! I missed my tenth anniversary high school reunion scheduled for June of this year. I may attend the next reunion if there is one.

    I think a "Grammar School" in the States is different from a "Grammar School" in England.

    In England it is a school ( system now discontinued) that accepts pupils (from the ages of 11 to 16) on academic merit (following an exam)

    In the States it seems to correspond to what we would call "Primary School" and is also called "Elementary School" out there in the colonies

    I think "High School" corresponds to our "Secondary School"

    After today, only 5 more radiation treatments left for prostate cancer. Last one is next Thursday. Fingers crossed that this does the trick. Looking forward to returning to normal life.

    I have some sad news my friends. My dog Bailey died last Thursday. He was old and had cancer. I finally felt comfortable sharing it with you my friends today. He was my best friend and I have been sad for a few days now but I am starting to feel better.

    So sorry to hear of the loss of your canine companion, mmatt.

    Animals are such forgiving creatures, they share our joys and sorrows and make the journey with us. The majority of pets are shorter lived than humans and so it is an eventuality that all pet owners must face.
    Perhaps in learning to let go and move on when they leave us, we gain some experience for future losses and possibly even learn to accept our own mortality.

    Grieve the loss in your own time and manner but I hope your best memories are of the time you had with Bailey. My thoughts are with you.

    Glad to hear also that you seem to have recovered from your illness. A lot of it making the rounds.

    Thank you. Bailey was a pet who gave me a lot of joy and was there to comfort me when I was sad or anxious. It is sad most dogs of Baileys size only live ten years. I am in the process of accepting he is gone and moving on. The sad truth is we all die someday. Some good memories I have of Bailey are the way he held his leash as I walked him and the way he sunned himself in the grass and rolled merrily. Thank you again.

    Today I am making coconut/coffee flavored ice cream using my own homemade kefir, canned coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, eggs and instant coffee. I have an ice cream maker with it's own compressor for temperature control
    and it takes very little time to make with this equipment as there is no pre-chilling required. Commercial frozen desserts have a lot of additives that I prefer not to ingest and by making my own ice cream, I know exactly what it is in.
    I most often make vanilla or chocolate, this combination is a first. Soon time to pull the ice cream out and clean the equipment, cook's privilege.

    At the office doing my morning job until 1:00 p.m. and tonight back to graveyard shift at the grocery store. I have been quite occupied in caring for my mother the past several weeks as she has been flat in bed with a bad cold virus that is making the rounds and is taking down all in it's path. No room at the hospital and of course with viruses there is little to be done save support and IV if someone gets too dehydrated. Making home made soups and things that she can manage to eat as the meals on wheels menu was not to her appetite or ability. Having some companionship and oversight is beneficial for those living alone, especially when one is too ill to get out of bed.

    She emailed today and says she is doing much better and can fare for herself this day but this cold has been bad for taking a second pass as bad as the first so I have cautioned her and hoping for the best. She is quite advanced in age and very frail with few reserves.

    Take care, all, and stay well.
