A LOOOONG day again.

Wednesday is visiting day. But this Wednesday was even busier than usual because I had a mechanic coming to look at my motorbike. He got it going (at last). but he had to go away and do some research on the electrical problem that made me put it off the road in the first place. (The break lights don’t work).

When I get that fixed, and my eyes fixed, I will register it again and have that as my second transport. At the moment I have 2 cars registered, but if I get the money I hope to get so I can have my eye operation, I plan on buying a new car. That way I will have a new car with a 7 year warranty, Rassilon will have a bigger car to lounge around in, and I can trade in the 2 cars for one.

I had thought about a new bike, but Rassilon can’t ride on that, and when my car had to get the door lock actuator fixed (under new car warranty), while I was waiting, I saw a new car that I really like. (Plus, the bike I liked, a BMW, was dearer than the new car, and if I bought that, I would still have the 2 cars).

Kia SOUL Bigger than my car, but not as big as it looks. Lots of greyhound room.

We went for our hospital visit today. Another time overshoot. We are booked in from 1.00 pm to 2.30 pm, but we got out of the hospital at about 4.30 pm. We can finish the wards by about 3.00 pm (they are bigger than Repat Hospital), but it is all the people we meet as we are trying to get out of the hospital that slows us down.

And of course, if they want to pat Rassilon and talk about greyhounds, well that is our area, and we will stay there as long as they want to talk and pat.

This makes visiting so rewarding.

Rassilon, all dressed to make a big impression.

Fortunately we don’t have a visit tomorrow because it would be cancelled due to the forecast heat. If TDS canceles, that means it is over 34 celsius, but I do have to go and see an optometrist, and hopefully get my eye operation pushed up a bit. At the moment It will be about September this year before I get to the top of the list. And at the speed my eyesight is deteriorating, I will be completely blind by than.

Therapy dogs are helping me by sending a non-dog handler to come around the hospital with me and do all the paperwork and send in the reports. At the nursing home I can just scan the sheet and send that with any notes. So everything is working out.
