Poor Mocha - Her eyes are still showing the drugs - It was always upsetting to pick one of ours up after a deal like that , She should be lots better this morning .
Don't forget - Lots of hugs from Uncle Ken , Mrs. Ken - Kadin and Little girl .

I don't understand why I like this song.

I totally get that!

There have been times when I have sneaked in a Dobe or two into a motel room, if it was a mandatory trip. Most of the mandatory trips, an RV was within reach.

If my dog is not welcome than neither am I!

So be it!

Forgiven? Yes.

Forgotten? No!

Don't worry. It's clear Mocha is overjoyed to be home.

I like that T-shirt, TN.

Bison are one of my top ten favorite animals.

Okay, I will try the dark side too!

Good Evening!

That didn't come out right!

Seriously Good Evening Peeps!

I didn't get a damn thing done today except for sleeping through The Rifleman and there is still a sink full of dishes.

Imagine that!

dobebug TN,

Thanks for the update. And poor Mocha--not only she isn't her normal bouncy happy self but she's drugged too, you can give her lots of hugs and pets and cuddles from me too--looks like she could use some extras.

Keeping my fingers crossed until all the results are in from the various tests.

Mel left off half of the invitation to the dark side. It's supposed to be "Come over to the dark side--we got cookies there too."

And try not to frighten the occupants and residents while you're there...

And take some cookies along--just in case they're out.

ABTLH who sometimes hangs out on the dark side but says very little there.

StrykersPerson So Happy that Mocha is HOME!

She loves you all so much no wonder she was stressed out from being deserted.

Poor baby.

Was she alert enough to go all wiggly butt on you when you picked her up?

Welcome home Mocha!
08-14-2020 02:52 PM
ECIN I know you probably know this TN - but i would help her down and back up the stars till tomorrow , Them meds are hard on them !

I do have a question that I picked up on in the assessment , IS she on any antibiotics now ?? OR before surgery ? And if so how long ? Reason I asked is that some anti's kill off the good bacteria in the guts and that can cause loss poop of diarrehea

Give her big hugs from Uncle Ken
08-14-2020 01:58 PM
LadyDi TN whats great Summary your surgeon provided.
So nice to have these details in writing for reference when you get home with your baby.
Glad she is home I thought about so much as I knew she would not like being away from home.
So happy she is home, whew.
So now we wait.

TNfisher I picked Mocha up around 10; the doc said she was very stressed out last night and this morning so they gave her a sedative to calm her down and right now she's still kinda out of it. Tired, and wobbly on her legs.
Now we wait for the test results...


Here's what we got from the hospital

At least it sounds like you have a good rapport with the crew, and they are the ones who matter when it comes to good workmanship, at least. Who knows, they might even enjoy hearing boss get a good earful—he might be screwing them too—and do an even better job on your roof in sympathy with you.

My son has been plumping for us to move away from civilization as far as we can, and aside from telling him it would take too long to get to the grocery store, and that there would be no fast food restaurants anywhere within reach, I haven't had that many reasons to counter him with (other than, "We're not moving and that's it!") So I'll have to keep him up to date with your trials and tribulations.

But I must admit, aside from your troubles, the idea of moving to the boonies is really attractive to me. Just not quite as boonie (boony?—oh yes, the proper singular is boondocks**, I think) as you seem to be.

Interesting word derivation of boondocks—

**"The boondocks is an American expression from the Tagalog word bundók ("mountain"). It originally referred to a remote rural area, but now, is often applied to an out-of-the-way area considered backward and unsophisticated by city-folk. It can also refer to a mountain."

Tagalog is the language they speak in the Phillippines! Who'd have thunk we'd have borrowed that expression?
I am pulling towards that, Ma!

Every worker loves to see a superior get the dressing down! Lannie said the boss dude was getting bitched about behind his back!

I love a rebellious crew!

Lannie?

Get pictures of them. Oh! And, Horus too!

ECIN Lannie - Your contractor is blowing smoke up your south side ! It was HIS responsibility to check how many layers were on our roof ! PERIOD !!!! He is trying to rip you off !!! As PERIOD !

I would not be surprised if your insurance company laughs in his face !! He submitted a bid to do it - right ? He has to stand behind that . Just keep a eye on EVERYTHING they do !!!! I can not stress that enough !! As my guess is they will held to there original bid and they will cut coroners , maybe not nail it right to save time and money , they will do something !

I have run it to these types many times in construction - they low ball the bid to get the job they try and add extra's on as they go .

I also , in my older age , have a come apart on them - is has got ugly ! I come from a heavy building knowledge as my dad was in construction and I helped out on his crew when not farming .

I would NOT apologize , NEVER to the rip off artist ! If he had told me he needed a extra 6 grand the doo , doo would have hit the fan .

I haven't really caught up with all the news. We were at the cabin off grid for two weeks. I took one shower in all that time. It still boggles my mind. Two of my sons flew in and really hit it hard.
I thought I may have permanent hearing loss with the generators running all day. A lot accomplished. Windows and doors trimmed inside and out. Tongue and groove put up in some places and
stairs to the loft. Soffits all around. Gable log siding put up. Back door stairs. Now Rich wants to go back this weekend and do more. We got back Monday and I slept 24 hrs around the clock!

Rich's only sister passed away while we were gone. Funeral which was delayed happened yesterday. Drove 12 hrs RT to make it. It had to be done outside, but was a lovely setting, although sad.

We took Kiri to vet today for xrays. More bad news, she is not pregnant. I think our next step is to get a second thyroid done on her, thru MSU this time and then breed her to our own Bodhi and
if that doesn't work, we will probably have to let it go.

Will see if I have more pic's later, but here is a picture of the 'crew' I had working for me. I would highly recommend them.

Hi Aunt Bonnie ! Yes I missed yeah !! It's been a long time since I have been out there - So -- Your 2 sons are on the right side of the picture and that 's Uncle Rich on the left -- right ? Glad you got lots done UP there , Cousin MB is looking pretty as ever - she just never ages .
