Totally missing Florida this week. We arrived home to cool weather (18 C) and some rain. I was most excited to be home to see the animals however, who were very well taken care of by my niece and neighbor. Frenchie has a large lump on his bum. It was there when I adopted him, but is troubling me a bit, so we are off to the vet today. He's terrified of both the vet and the car after he was manhandled a little after a small procedure at another vet. Today I am walking him to a new vet and have made a pre-visit to ask them not to force him up on the stainless table or on the weigh scales today. He had a big panic attack last time, so I want to ease him into this new vet and I am hoping he doesn't have to have any more procedures, poor bubbie.
If any of you in the USA are looking for cheap airlines, check out Allegiant Air. They fly in and out of small airports around the country. We flew return to Florida from Niagara Falls, NY for $140.00 each, taxes and carry on luggage included. On time and quite comfortable.
I do like my Bits, and display my vacation shells in jars in the bathroom. I also have thing for the little bottles of Coke you can find in the US. It seems to taste better than from a can don't you think? If any of you are looking to buy a single serving coffee pod machine, I highly recommend the Nespresso....the coffee is just like espresso from a good cafe....I make sure I order it online so we don't run out in Florida. I made a fabulous purchase while down there at a second hand store. I bought these huge, heavy, brass candlesticks for $10.00 for the pair. They look like they are from India. They go well with my little Indian camels and elephants that I find in a local shop downtown. They are beautifully made and covered in trim and pompoms and mirrors and bells. I have several now and hang them on the door knobs along with beaded strings of brass bells, much to the Raz Man's chagrin.
