Second Half of the NEW YEAR.

Good Evening,

I know folks have wondered what happened to us the past couple of days as I have not posted my daily post.

Mr. Alvin as you know has been suffering from some health problems as of late.

He was not himself over the weekend.

At lunchtime today I was able to get him into see his vet.

My daughter drove from her home in Spruce Grove to take us.

I appreciate all of her help and support.

She found that he had a pulled muscle in his neck.

Well that would account for many of his actions over the few days.

To add insult to injury we had the hottest day in over a year.

Tomorrow is to be hot as well.

One of the medications that his vet prescribed was Robaxin (if I got the spelling correct).

For some reason not very many pharmacies keep it in stock.

That makes me wonder.

It is a specific dosage and perhaps that is why.

Anyway as I drip from the heat of the day and with a slight reprieve from the coolness of the night air.

Definitely cooler outside now than in the house.

Wished we could sleep on the deck.

 

Anyway back to his pills.

A pharmacy down the way from his Vet is going to order them in and hopefully should have tomorrow.

That will totally help his neck muscles.

 

As he has to limit climbing and actually he has not been climbing the stairs, I have been carrying him up and down when necessary…

I have decided and have already moved my workspace down to the kitchen table.

Seems odd but it actually works quite well.

Only for this week as I am on vacation after Friday.

 

One of my favourite entertainers … talk show host ….. Regis Philbin passed away over the weekend.

He was 88 only and only a month away from 89.

Regis was one of a kind and there are not many of those truly good people left.

The ones that you never heard a bad word about ….

A true legend and beloved man.

Rest in Peace, Sir.

 

Alvin is not doing well with the added heat so I have to cut this short.

For this week, I will be posting my blogs at night before bed.

 

I hope that you are keeping cool and dry.

There is such extreme weather everywhere.

Take care.

 

My son-in-law had been in the neighbourhood late this afternoon having his teeth cleaned.

I was happily surprised when I saw him pull up in front of the house.

He came to the door with something in his hand.

He stopped at Dairy Queen and picked up my favourite frozen treat.

Buster Bars ….. with peanuts and chocolate and ice cream.

What a sweetheart.

I am truly blessed to have the most thoughtful kids on the planet.

 

With kindness and respect,

I/We, shall remain

As Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Living … One day at a time.

Hello,

Well today is Thursday, no rain overnight.

Yesterday was perfection.

We so enjoyed our walk with Teddy and his Aunt J.

Couple days into our regular routine and Alvin woke up early.

Both Tuesday and Wednesday he slept until the alarm went off.

This morning we beat the alarm by waking up at 4:00 a.m.

I guess you could add me to waking up early as well.

Yikes, a little bug just flew past my nose.

ARGH.

Will have to be on the hunt for that bug.

At least it was not a fly.

I do not like flies.

 

How about some more holiday photos?

More photos of the HOODOOS @ Drumheller, Alberta.

If you ever have the chance to visit this area, please do so.

It is incredible.

We did not climb to the top but there were other visitors that did make the journey.

Also at Drumheller is the Dinosaur Museum …. the Royal Tyrrell Museum.

We did not go there on this visit but we have visited before and it is so spectacular.

Worth the time.

We investigated little nooks and crannies.

Imagining life a long, long time ago.

There was some vegetation here and there.

The colouring of the formations was different at every angle.

Well time to fly here.

I hope that you enjoy some of the photos from our girls trip 2019.

 

It is always fashionable to be kind and respectful.

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
