Have been trying to catch the girl cats, Niblet and Lucy, to take their pictures so you can meet them.  They aren't cooperating though.  Niblet shows up well after dark and obviously.....I can't take her picture then.  Well I could.....but you wouldn't see anything, because she is as black as the night with no white on her anywhere. 

Lucy, on the other hand, shows up once in a while in the early morning and disappears long before I can get my eyes open and my camera out.  Lucy looks a lot like her cousin Jack, but with several notches in her gun belt.  Oops, I mean ear.   She is black too, just like Jack and Niblet, but Lucy has the same white locket on her chest that cousin Jack does.   Lucy is quite the fighter and likes to remind her brothers and cousin of that every chance she gets.  

So I wait to catch them.  
In the meantime, I can at least show a picture of me waiting.

Yeah that's me..... my leg.

Got this new 'boot' the other day.  Am just SO excited about it....NOT!  
Nothing serious. Bone spurs and a very inflamed and painful Achilles heel.  We tried physical therapy first but that didn't work.  So now.....I get 'the boot'.  For a whole two months.  Oh joy!  If the boot doesn't work, then it's surgery. 

I don't know how I'm going to wear it that long.  It's not the most comfortable thing in the world.  It's a pain in the patooty too.  Since it's my right leg that has to wear the boot, I can't drive with it on, which means toting it around and putting it on when I get to where I'm going.  It's just not worth it.  It's easier to run in the grocery with a limp than the boot!

So what are the chances of Niblet and Lucy showing up so I can get their pictures?  And what are the chances that I am going to be able to put up with 'the boot' for two months?

Something like a snowballs' chance in wherever!!


  1. That does not look comfortable. But if it works and you can avoid surgery, it will be worth the trouble. Good luck

  2. Thanks keeping my fingers crossed!!!

  3. Hope it works so you can avoid surgery - Ouch! Hope your girls show up!

  4. is that really supposed to work???

  5. I don't know! It's soooo frustrating!

  6. You have all my sympathy. I ruptured my left Achilles a few years ago. After surgery I was in either a cast or a boot for nearly 3 months. Sooo not fun!

  7. Oh dear Penny! Did it finally heal and is the pain gone?? I am having a terribly time wearing the boot. I am too busy wear the darn thing!!


I love hearing from you so please leave me a message!
