I agree, Least, they need to see you sooner rather than later. Sending huge hugs and lots of prayers to see you through this.

Mixed day here, cloud then sun then cloud then sun....rinse and repeat.

We are watching the Victory Celebration and parade for the Toronto Raptors which has brought 2 million people to the area and shut down the nearby subway stations because the platforms cannot hold all those people. Now there has been a shooting, can people not just put those guns away for one happy day? I think they got the shooter and I don't know if or how many were shot, I think it was an isolated incident.

I read that two people were injured, tho not life threatening.

I will call my doctor tomorrow to see if I can get in sooner.

Bro just called to say he's not coming by tonight, but going straight home. He's got to find another way home as several roads he usually takes have been flooded and are not passable.

It stopped raining for a bit so I took Billie for a walk but she didn't seem that enthused about it.

Opi - I chickened out halfway there. I decided I like my ankles.

Ann - I look forward to the nausea ending for you so you can enjoy the rest of the summer. I hope they'll find an answer to put an end to it.

Least - Hoping you get to see the doc asap.

Sunshine today - but I kind of made myself miserable by going through a box of old photos. Memory Lane is filled with bumps & pot holes. It had to be done though - & I threw away things I've held on to for far too long.

Love ya, whiners.

Forgot to say - I love the term 'brolly', Mags. I hadn't heard it before.

Least - I feel bad for Linda - she can't sing anymore due to Parkinson's.
I enjoyed the song - now it's in my head, so thanks.

So funny.....how different our language is in the English-speaking world. Can't imagine never having heard the word 'brolly' before, but then, I couldn't have imagined that benches would be called countertops and gosh so many more.....

We've had a few hours without rain today, it's been very grey and cloudy but for the most part its been dry, so fingers crossed.

Least, I agree with Venuscat and Ann too, please try and get an earlier appointment, this needs sorting and sorting now. (())

Hevyn, you've had sun? Wow, that's so unfair, it's so cold here.
It can be very poignant looking through old photo's and once you start you can't stop.

I've heard the term 'brolly' but have never heard of 'bench' meaning 'countertop'. I learn something new every day.

Billie ate her supper. I got her some more green beans at the store. I thought I was getting regular ones, but they were the french style green beans. She doesn't care tho, and ate them right up. She loves green beans and will eat them like a treat.

I will call the doctor tomorrow to get an appt sooner.

I am feeling less distressed now.

We've had sun, then clouds, then sun, then clouds... all day long, with rain showers. I hope bro found a way home on a different road. There's a low-lying area on his way home that always floods when it rains a lot.

Hev, I didn't know that about Linda Ronstadt. Didn't she date CA gov Jerry Brown back in the day?

Least - I forgot that - they did date for quite a while, I think.

Daisy - Well, we're back to rain tomorrow. It's a jungle outside.

Hev, I remember cause it was quite a 'thing' that they were dating.

I gave an album of pictures of the girls when they were little to mk to transfer to her computer. She was supposed to bring the album back but hasn't yet.

It's not raining here...yet...

Out with sadness and regret. In with self-forgiveness and joy...never leave out the joy.

Least, hope you get relief soon.

Tomorrow is second (and last) biopsy of lesion to see if/how DNA has been affected by this new medication. Leaving early and will plan a pleasant drive home.

See you all tomorrow night.
