A Visit to the Vet's Office

I took Golum in this morning. He had an upper respiratory infection, nothing too serious, according to Dr. Jeff, but Golum did get a shot and some medicine. When I got home with him this afternoon, I let him out of the carrier, and I haven't seen him since. I hope he comes in soon so I can give him his antibiotics.

Dr. Jeff's a good animal doctor. He's funny and compassionate. He's also on call at the sale barn next door to his clinic, and, when they have sales (as they did today), he spends most of his time over there. But I like that he lets his kids hang around and help out with the smaller animals. And he's so country. Today, he was wearing his overalls and high rubber boots!

I'm sure that Golum will recover, but I also know that I can take him back to Dr. Jeff's without breaking the bank--that's the best thing! I can afford to take care of my pets.

Oh, yeah. Boudreaux brought in a bird this morning, but didn't quite know what to do with it. I took the bird back outside, and it flew away (Hooray! Cats: 6 Birds: 1).

Golum left for the Shire. The ring is in the Shire. A little Lord of the Rings humor. Hi there. That poor cat. I feel bad that he ran away and that he got a shot. How is your semester going? I have a question, What motivates you to do a blog? One of these days you will probably keep one of the BOWs (Birds of War). Hope to see you this semester.

Love always,

I'm answering your question here. Why do I keep a blog? Because it makes me write. It's a huge motivator, its a diary of my life, such as it is. It's a recording of the mundane, but it's MY mundane!

It's self-indulgence. What else is there?

Yeah, tennis has been a shocker lately! I had to find out what you had to say about it.

Semester is good! How's yours? Even if you come looking for me, I might not be there--too many meetings!

Love you, too!
