Ouch. Making my toes curl thinking about it, Michael. But it's a means to an end, and no more sore toes. She sure has been put through the mill this past year. I hope the future is much brighter for her.

Being the newbie I am to N.S. I couldn't work out how to reach out to Physical Perfection to tell him to get on with life as you never know what tomorrow will bring. Obviously at the moment time

I'm a happy Bunny tonight Went for my oncology visit after I had the P.E.T. scan and T.A.C. a couple of weeks ago and all is clear after the scare I had. The next process is due in 6 months after I ha

Don't think I've posted on this thread before but maybe being admitted to Stoke hospital with a heart attack on Monday justifies it  No big deal really and not as dramatic as it sounds. Admitted

Attended the clinic for that many years...I got invited to the staff dances!!

Dr.Petgrave was a top nail jockey- after he retired.. terrible times/arguments/needle snaps and anesthesia rows!

My wife has been suffering with ingrowing toenails which was caused by her chemotherapy. I'm taking her to have an op on her big toes tomorrow. They slice and remove the nail down both sides and then put a chemical there to stop that part of the nail growing again. She'll be out of action for a few weeks so my workload will be even worse. It's hard work being a housewife, or should I say househusband. :biggrin:

My sympathies to you both Michael. Hope she's on the mend soon.

Mrs C & I had to take Monty to the vet this morning. He's been a bit of colour lately also quite lethargic. Also noticed he has not been very active, last couple of mornings he hasn't come upstairs at 4am ish to get us up !

Vet discovered that he had a bit of an ear infection & his old war wound problem his nearside hip was seizing up again giving the poor old lad some grief.

Fortunately his blood test revealed all well regarding kidneys & liver etc. So was able to have immediate pain killing injection. A poor result would have painted a much bleaker picture for him.

Our prayer's were answered & very soon he will be back to his normal self ! For a little longer, he ain't doing bad for a lad of nearly twenty !

Me ? In agony after paying the £140 bill. nobluenobluenoblue

Glad Monty is recovering. It's so disheartening and soul destroying when you know they are in pain and there's nothing you can immediately do to help them. I'm rooting for you Monty old lad !

#342. Actually, Carnie, its not really as black As I paint it.

You do see one or two around. I've even seen a Copperhead on the road in the subdivision. They are not aggressive and will usually try to avoid human contact. Biggest danger would be stepping on one by not seeing it.

I guess I'm a bit snakeophobic (is that a word?). Anyway being bitten would definitely lead to some ailments aches and pains. Assuming you survived. :-)

LL, You are doing the most sensible thing wearing shoes, I'm pretty sure I would never walk barefoot again if I saw a snake. If I trod on a worm, that would be enough to send me running for shoes. If a bee stung me or any insect bit me, because I was bare foot I wouldn't be so quick to leave my shoes off again.

That could happen in the UK nevermind here. I guess you've just got to make your own mud, and make sure there's no nasties in it. :-)

Edited to add: A lot of hunters here wear Snakeboots. These come up to the knees and protect the lower legs. Useful in the woods.

I love 'em all. Cats and dogs. Actually I think dogs are more work than cats. If you are going to treat them right they need walks and quite a bit of time. They tend to be more social than cats. I think.

Hope everybody gets well soon!

I've been a bit hammered with gastritis and heartburn for a few days.

Very annoying, but I suppose it keeps Gaviscon in business...
