On Tuesday, Oct. 19th we were all up at 6. Our little guy slept really well between us last night despite the large plastic dome around his little head. He actually settled down quicker than any other night. We were awoken this morning when he started squirming trying to get the cone off. He got his paw stuck up in there and kind of freaked out. Bill took it off and he piddled outside, first time since I brought him home. 😊 Bill fed him and without any hesitation he gobbled that up!
|It's blurry but there was a strange fog this morning|
and the closer I got to town, the ground was white with frost
It was way too early for Bill or I to leave for work so we all sat and dozed in our chairs until 7:30. I didn’t feel comfortable leaving Gibbs on his own with the cone on or off so he got to go with me to clean. When I got there, another customer was inside so I left Gibbs in the warm car, cone on. Checking on him periodically, he was quiet and seemed to have settled down.
|I'm going to work with Mom!! 😁|
Look what I discovered when I did my walk through. Grrr!
|It's a hollow style door so it probably wasn't|
too difficult to pry the hinge loose😡
I texted Jamie and he was able to see the culprit although no face was visible on camera because he wore a hoody. ☹ We’ve decided since that was a cheap door, that Jamie would hire someone to install a solid door with a handle lock PLUS our hinge and padlock. That would be the cheapest way and the bathroom would still be usable by ‘staff’. That settled, Gibbs and I came home. As soon as we got inside, I took the cone off.
|Gibbs is showing no signs of pain so we walked down|
the lane for some light exercise
The first thing we did was go upstairs and watched some tv. It wasn’t long and he was asleep and I also dozed. I made myself an egg with some bacon for lunch. That hit the spot with some 11% fat yogourt. Yum. We sat together in my chair, went for a few walks and I straightened a few things in the Bunky.
|The geese were gathered in our neighbours front field|
which isn't supposed to be a pond
|Gibbs was watching them when the mail lady drove by|
Gibbs heard Daddy come home (before I did!) I put him on his leash and we met Bill outside. Well, the little guy (Gibbs not Bill) hasn’t calmed down any – yet.
|Just junk mail today so Gibbs carried it back for me|
|He has a hard time giving it up, like the beer can,|
but eventually surrendered it (although a bit chewed)
Inside, we watched some tv together, a movie we both like, and then at 6, I began making spaghetti. I decided not to make it in Madame IP tonight, so used our stove instead and the spaghetti cooker.
|No doubt this would feel good in his current|
We were eating by 6:30 and as I was sitting in my chair, I could see the moon out our east window. When I took Gibbs out, we went up on the hill so I could take outside pictures of it. There is a saying about ‘howling at the moon’, well, he didn’t do that but he did bark at the turbine. Goofy.
|We spent a fair bit of time cuddling|
|I needed his help to finish my blog,|
|Spaghetti for supper with salad|
|The sun began setting so early|
|And I caught sight of the gorgeous|
Hunter's Moon in the east sky
|A silhouette in the southwest sky|
After dishes, we watched our recorded episode of The Voice from last night while recording tonight’s. Sound confusing but we have things under control Ha ha! Well, Bill does at least! He had his shower before bed since Gibbs wanted his attention for a while. That gave me time to work on my blog. I’m trying to get it finished. This has been a good day and the warm temperature (19C/66F) and sunshine helped that a lot.
|Gibbs and I walked around the corral (at 7!!)|
and you can see the moon and the Suite on the hill

Thank you for your visit!
