When I don’t post for a day, I get so much backlog – pictures, news, dirty dozen quilts – I oftentimes don’t post until evening and last night I was so busy watching Hillbilly Elegy that I didn’t have time. What a great movie! Glen Close was amazing in her role as the grandma and the lesson to all families is very clear. I will say no more but if you have kids or grandkids, you should try to watch it. I think Rick would enjoy it so I’ll watch it again with him in the living room.
Jo news – I fed her bits of Fresh Pet food on my fingers – with my hand turned backward – I think that is key. She doesn’t see a fist coming towards her. She really was active last night outside the kennel – she found a bobbin from the quilting machine – it wasn’t unwound but I put them all up high! And a Xerox paper bill that she tore up – it’s paid automatically so no harm done. I tried to take her collar off this morning and had to cut it off – I’ve never used a martingale collar but this one has been on a very long time.
I am going to grit my teeth and not reschedule my hand surgery at this time. I believe I’ll buy a new right hand brace and get by for as long as I can. It’s a terrible nuisance to have a tingly numb hand but I’ll live with it for now.
Remember those lovely wreaths from Janie in IL? These pictures are from Connie – the one with Betty is priceless!
Thanks again, Janie!
