It seems with my hands, stitching is something that will take forever and I am making slow or rather no progress. So in the mean while I kept myself busy by adopting another dog. This time it was an old Border collie whose humans simply gave him up because they got a new dog, how convenient. So he had three teeth extracted to cure his terribly bad breath and a tumour removed from his back and apart from following me every step of the way, he is doing very well.
Then future son-in-law turned 30 and we had a surprise party for him and I am really getting too old to keep secrets. For some ridiculous reason (o wait he updated his new gift with our internet) he spent most of the day by us and I didn’t know what to talk about to him. No conversation about food, drinks, entertainment or clothing as it may turn into the events of the evening. It was good when it was done!
