Every birdie needs a bath. This little one came back several times, especially after I changed the water just for him.
I had 2 days of work in the garden and then the rains came. Yesterday morning we had a doozy of a thunderstorm. It seemed to go on for hours. With it came humidity and I’m afraid more of the same is due today. I’ve been cleaning and unpacking and worrying about Riley. He’s really had a hard time of it with an injury to his right hip. We don’t know how it happened…sometimes this sort of thing just takes over for several days and we worry and help him as best we can. In the middle of a “Should we take him to the Vet?” discussion, as if he knew just what we were suggesting and wanted no part of it, he started to show little signs of improvement. We’re exercising him as often as we can and he seems find getting up and down a bit easier today. Our sweet boy – we sure love him.
May I give you a little heads up? Don has a big birthday tomorrow. One that he has been dreading. Hint: it starts with a 6 and ends with an 0. He wants to keep the day low-key, so we are having a couple of friends over for dinner and an evening of music with guitars and beautiful songs and the creative expression that makes Don happy. A little gift giving will be done, (the big gift, if you remember, is our trip to Fenway Park in September for a Red Sox vs. Yankees game) some sugar-free apple raspberry pie (from the Julian bakery in Julian, CA) will be eaten and hopefully, the day will be a happy one.
I’m going to write a Happy Birthday post for him later today. Would you all be so kind as to wish him a Happy Birthday? It would be such a wonderful surprise. I plan on showing him all the birthday greetings at the end of the day on Friday.
Thank you, my friends. My guy needs a little cheering up!
