Our "amazing" Lizzie!



These pics were taken yesterday when I worked in the yard & Liza came out with me "stole" a shoe & ran around the yard with it. She has been doing that since we have owned her & it's the only "bad" thing she has ever done.


What amazes me is each day I have her is borrowed time as she was given about 6 months more almost 2-1/2 years ago but here she is still running around thinking she's a puppy. She is as skinny as can be in spite of all her special food. Every Sat I cook freshly grounded chicken & hard boil 8 eggs. I take just the whites chopped fine, a can of lima beans also chopped & mix it all up with wheat germ & flax seed oil - Yummo! She gets that along with cottage cheese mixed into her breakfast & dinner every day(hi-protein because of her kidney issues) but we still can't get any meat on her bones. She still walks 2 miles with me every morning & usually about the same every night. She will be 14 years old(98 in people years) in Jan & every day I hope she makes it until then & longer...........................

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
