Good 53º morning. Will stay nice for a few hours then warm up.
Can you believe it's the LAST DAY OF JULY already~!!!!
Yesterday I dropped my truck at the dealership for a check up and oil change. Also got an estimate for tires. UGH. Jeannie met me and we went shoe shopping, didn't buy anything. The Dollar Store and each spend a whopping $3. To the Kitchen Store and just looked at everything. Then we were going to the Mediterranean but dang they were closed. New summer hours "closed on Monday"! Next choice was Blondie's.
Jeannie had wine
and I had a 'mango habañero martini' ... AWESOME!
We ordered off the appetizer menu. Jeannie had coconut shrimp
which she LOVED!
......and I had the Mediterranean combo platter (eggplant hummus, Kalamata olives, provolone wrapped around prosciutto, cucumber, grape tomatoes, and pita bread). All YUMMY~
'Deeewayne Honey' Preimsberger sent this to me....
Beauty and the Beak..... wonderful story!
Maggie had an appointment with the vet later yesterday. She has a blockage in her nasal passage. None of her tests ever came back as malignant so we opted for no surgery. He also said, dogs who have that nasal surgery don't live as long as those who don't! She got some meds to help reduce swelling. She's having a hard time breathing unless she opens her mouth.
Then I remembered I left my camera in Jeannie's car so Maggs and I made a trip to their house. I was poured a cold glass of wine and we sat in the gazebo by the pond. Maggie and Chaka got to know each other.... and Maggs enjoyed the cool spot for a rest...

Mr. Raccoon showed up here the night before last and ate all of Baby's food. So, last night I brought his food in and maybe the racoon will leave now! Dr. Ron, the vet, said they have a lot of parasites and we don't want them around!
All I know. Eye appointment for reading glasses today. Nuff said. Ciao.
