~ More Chickens ~ More Rain ~ Doctor's Day ~

Good  46ยบ cloudy morning.           

I looked up full grown naked neck chickens
and came up with...

How pathetic!
No wonder David didn't want them.
On the other hand, they are interesting little guys.

Rain and more rain...
ALL day yesterday!

Total was 

 Today there is no radar..

And the forecast is for sun ..

Yesterday after I piddled around and did a few chores
I sat and read a book. "Oogy" is the title, written by
Larry Levin.

It is the kind of book that as you read along, you just smile ... often.
A pup that had been a 'bait dog' for dog fighting. Interestingly enough, everyone thought he was a pit bull. Not. He's a Dogo, an Argentine Mastiff.

This dog was bred for big-game hunting. They are used also by the military and as search and rescue dogs.
Great story. Get the book.

1842Anesthesia is used for the first time, in an operation by Dr. Crawford Long.
    (... and the beeeoootch I shared and office with at CF Braun, Patsy Paige, made a horrible remark when I told her the President had been shot .."He deserved it", she said !!!
