Feeling better today, Rassilon and I went visiting. I wasn’t the best on Wednesday, but most of the problem was that I didn’t sleep Tuesday night. So by Wednesday morning I had a headache that didn’t want to go, and I felt like I had the flu, so as a precaution, I cancelled our visit.
But Wednesday was a better night, and while I didn’t sleep right through, and had to get up several times, (damn diuretic tablets), I still managed to get a few hours sleep. So this morning, knowing that Aberfoyle Park home only allows me to visit 1 resident, I felt it okay to visit as I didn’t have to walk around.
The resident wasn’t feeling the best, and hasn’t for a while, but we went outside and sat in the sun and talked about all sorts while Rassilon wandered around the garden and met a few people. Eventually the resident started to feel better. So I left at lunch time, and after lunch he is going to go out on his ‘gopher‘ to the nearby shopping centre. It makes a nice change for him to get out, but he couldn’t get out without the ‘gopher‘ because he has trouble walking.
On the way home I stopped off to visit Ella. I wanted a nice photo of her. There is a resident at Flagstaff Hill called Beverly, but she is known as ‘BE’. Well Ella’s racing name was ‘Better BE’, so I thought I would get a nice photo of her and give it to care home BE. She really loves dog’s, so I hope she will enjoy the picture.
Of course, the green eyed monster, jealousy, raised it’s head. Rassilon, who never seems to like having his photo taken, decided that Ella shouldn’t have her photo taken…at least not without Rassilon.
Eventually I got a good photo of Ella, but it was inside, and I had to retouch it a bit, luckily I have a few programs to do it, but it was such a small job, I did it with Microsoft Paint, and I didn’t have to get out the big Corel Draw program.
(Can you see where I touched it up?)
When I got home a slicer I ordered arrived. Yes, I have an electric slicer, but it just about disintegrated the dog food roll. The new slicer should slice it evenly in a few seconds. I did a roll of Fritz, and I sliced a 1Kg roll in about 1 minute, and that included unwrapping it and cutting it into pieces that will fit the slicer.
The slicer can be used for vegetables or anything not too hard, and it will slice into 12 even thickness pieces. So this afternoon (after a sleep) I will try it with the dog roll. It should be easier than the Fritz because it isn’t as dense, the very reason it is not so good on the electric slicer.
And to Keep Rassilon happy, tomorrow we go and visit Peter, and Rassilon really likes him.
