This week was our oldest grandson's birthday. So here is a pic of him with his Cookie Cake (and pandemic beard).
And here is a picture of him with Winston, the family's Golden Doodle! His family is moving to Texarkana and his dad and Winston stopped by to say Happy Birthday on their way out...
Next is a pic of ol' One Eye... the feral I was talking about on my last post. I have been seducing him with treats and chicken and he will come within a few feet of me. But yesterday I shared my 'salmon'... and he came almost to my hand. So I may have found his weakness. This isn't a good pic as it was taken from afar and enlarged, but you can see his bad eye.
I would like for him to let us pet him and although most of the ferals keep their distance, One Eye seems like he might like to come closer. He looks in the front door... which makes me wonder if he was possibly an inside cat at one time.
This next pic is just one DH took of a large grasshopper on the house. We don't see grasshoppers much, so it was interesting... and good to know since we try to keep things 'green' (no chemicals). So when we see lizards, toads, and other critters on the property, it makes us feel good.
Now I will close this with a quick update... and a pic:
As of this past Monday and my visit to the Cardiologist, I'm wearing a heart monitor for the next 30 days. He's trying to determine if my 'episodes' at night are caused by AFib or if possibly they are stress related. (I don't feel especially stressed, but maybe my body thinks differently?)
And I simply had to share this pic of my grandnephew, his wife, and baby. It is so-oo cute. I can't believe they got the baby to smile for the pic!
That's my ramblings for today. Hope you are all having a good weekend. The weather is beautiful here today in North Texas. It was pretty chilly this morning, but perfect this afternoon (62 F).
I'm feeling strangely optimistic today... not sure why, but despite all the weird things going on in the world right now (health-wise, politically, and even personally) I find that something is telling me that things are happening just as they are supposed to... and if we stay true to what we believe is right, all will be well (or as they said in the movie, "all will be well in the end... and if it's not, then it isn't the end").
Take care my friends!
