Umm ...

Writer's Block: If These Walls Could Talk

Would you rent or buy the home of your dreams if a brutal murder had taken place there? What if you got to live there rent-free? Would you think twice if neighbors warned you that it was haunted?

Hard to say, personally.

I suppose none of us know what went on in our homes before we bought them - Ignorance is bliss.

I find it weird when I remember, however, that my neighbour was murdered.  They were out for a walk, locally at the time, so it din't happen next door.   Sadness is all around us.

LOL - James (full face)

Typical Hospitals!

A 75 Year Old Lady rings her local NHS hospital and this conversation follows:

'Hello I'd like some information on a patient, Mrs Tiptree. She was admitted last week with chest pains and I just want to know if her condition has deteriorated, stabilised or improved?'

'Do you know which ward she is in?'

'Yes, ward P, room 2B'

'I'll just put you through to the nurse station.'

'Hello, ward P, how can I help?'

'I would just like some information on a patient, Mrs Tiptree, I was wondering if her condition had deteriorated, stabilised or improved?'

'I'll just check her notes. I'm pleased to say that Mrs Tiptree's conditioned has improved. She has regained her appetite, her temperature has steadied and after some routine checks tonight, she should be well enough to go home tomorrow.'

'Oh that's wonderful news, I'm so happy, thank you ever so much!'

'You seem very relieved, are you a close friend or relative?'

'No, I'm Mrs Tiptree in room 2b. Nobody tells you anything at all in here

Time To Work Again!

I managed to make it out to see the boy today - what with illness, injury and torrential rain, we haven't got to meet up for over a week - I think he is OK about that - no Deborah .... no work ... and Toni still remembers to take out a carrot!

He came over this morning to me, which was lovely, and seemed happy to be coming in.

He had quite a long and thorough groom - and a bit of a cuddle.  so, he was truly pampered this morning.

Toni brought in Smudge and we only went up the road and back - as Toni is having the most horrific week possible -

Her aunt has died of cancer
Her mum (who has MS) has had a mastectomy
Her planning permission has been turned down
Her surgery date (for her wisdom teeth which is causing her excess pain) has been cancelled, as she has had food poisoning!

Then - I tell her that I am going to be moving next year!  Our friendship is such that I hated to tell her, as she is the one person I will miss not having nearby ... but it is also such that I couldn't not tell her.   Anyway, she actually had been expecting my news!!

So - a nice walk - although DJ was in a silly mood.  I think it's because he overheard Toni and I talking about him learning harness work - he decided to prove he couldn't do it!!!!

Still, it was a good (and dry) ride - and weall enjoyed the break.

So, back home, and fed, he went back to his field, where he proceeded to canter around bucking and leaping like a youngster!  It was lovely to watch.
