This is another of the pictures I took the other day in nearby Parke County...almost every bit of the snow is now gone. It has rained and drizzled off and on all day long. We are supposed to get freezing rain towards morning. I really hope they are wrong about this...

Wednesday I take Mama Cat and the Princess to be spayed. I am sure hoping the weather is accommodating that day. I am taking them to a vet in the south end of Terre Haute instead of to the vet in our little town. I called out there about the age they have to be and got two different answers, so I called down there and got what I thought I had been told before, plus what I had read. And he is the vet we used when we first married--and also when Sarah got her dog from the shelter a few years ago, we got a deal on getting her spayed by going to him. We also left her with him when my mom died...he got so tickled at how glad she was to see us when we got home that he followed us out to our car/van talking to us and laughing about her. He really likes animals.

When we were first married I had a dachshund that jumped off my lap while I was setting on a step stool. She got down in her back till she could hardly walk and that on New Year's eve...we called him and his response was so immediate--meet him at his office in 15 minutes. There was no outrageous charge--just the normal office charge and charge for the medicine...I don't remember if he gave her a shot or not. But I think his quick response was a big part of her recovery...she never had another bit of back trouble in the rest of her years...

Change of topic--I finally finished the binding on my small quilt while watching the Indianapolis Colts play tonight! I want to try to get a good picture of it tomorrow but don't know how possible that will be. I am convinced that the flash on my camera is not even up to par for normal pop-up flashes. Maybe I should ask for a good flash for Christmas--but I don't use the flash that much.
