Oh Least, naughty Billie peeing on the rug, maybe she thought it was too rainy to go out for one. I hope she doesn't make it a regular occurrence. It's raining here too, rain, rain and more rain, I don't know where it's all coming from.

Ann, I hope your new nausea tablets do the trick. Make sure that you get plenty of rest over the next 5 days, don't do anything unless you really, really have to. It will be so much easier for you once you are taking them every 8 weeks. Good luck. Love right back at you and you are never, ever all about you, you care about everyone. xx

Pondlady, I love your avatar. I'm glad that Lamp's post op appointment went well, onwards and upwards now. Have a safe journey home tomorrow.

I don't mind frogs Opi, they don't bother me at all. Keep your eye on all those scratches, they sound nasty.

Oh my goodness Least, a slug, yuck, now that would freak me out. I don't understand why we have slugs, as far as I can see they have no purpose, there is no need for them, they shouldn't be allowed.

Very funny Suki.

Mags, I hope all goes well for Mr Mags, I know it's hard to do but please try not to worry too much, Google always gives you the worst case scenario's.

A big hi to those of you I've missed, I'm struggling to keep my eyes open at the min.

xx

I don't mind teeny tiny frogs. The one I saw yesterday was a great big one. I swear it follows me ... or maybe there's a slew of them.

I covered the scratches with an antibiotic.

I shall live to garden another day!

Poor Opi! You do so need a pool boy, to take care of you.

Venus, I did get the "froot"... groot photo, but for the life of me, I don't get the frogs carrying raisins.

Ann, hope your nausea med is helping

Suki, so glad to hear that your pain is lessened. Hope it continues to feel better.

least, sad about your sister. hope things work out for the best. Billie is a good girl, and has been doing very well. I bet your trumpet vine is lovely.

PJ, It appears that the sauna pants keep you tied closely to an electrical outlet. perhaps a sauna blanket would work better for overall water loss? where do you find these things?

Pondy, glad things are going so well! won't be long until you are home and can rest, and do your gardening. Glad Lamp continues to do so well! She's had the best 'nurse'

Daisy, its been ages since I slept until the alarm rings. I would love to sleep through one, just once My cats wake me at 430 am every morning,,,ugh.

Mags, sending best wishes and prayers for mr. Mags! don't google things, for sure... I always scare myself. Hope you feel better too.

where is our Maudcat?

Hevyn, the weather this spring has been so strange, everywhere, it seems. we had an earthquake in Ohio last week! 4.0.

well loves.. gonna go before I get kicked off here and lose my post, lol. actually, I never log off, so I remember myself..lol

love and hugs

I didn't get the 'groot' reference, but like the apple anyway.

Billie ate all her supper. Afterward she did a LW.

Chic, you really never log off? How come I don't always see your name? I figured when I didn't see it, you weren't logged in.

Still raining a bit. Billie went out in it and did her business like a good girl. I gave her a biscuit when we came in.

Chic, when is your next vacation?

Pondy, it's so good of you to take came of Lamp. I'm sure she loved having you there. GiGi will be so glad to see you. Her little tail will wag right off her butt! Anytime I go away, no matter how long, Billie always gives a little leap of joy when she sees me. Very flattering to know I'm so loved.

The rain is making it feel cold. I gave in and turned the furnace on for an hour.

Daisy, Billie has an accident in the house about two or three times a year, so I can live with that. I don't know why, but I wish she'd signal that she has to go out.

Least - I broke down & put our heat on too. I have never done that in June - not usually in May either.

Hev, teeny brown frogs are usually toads...just sayin'

I had a relaxing day but nausea still there. At least I could lay down and eventually nap when it passed.

All day rain here too. I want summer.

Ann - Are you sayin' I don't know my Amphibians?
I just read about them - apparently they are good for the garden because they eat slugs & other stuff. I will encourage them.
Rooting for your Raptors tonight! 8-0 Raptors at the moment.
Very sorry the nausea has returned.

Opi, yes, this throws me off my game but I will figure something out. I'm a stubborn old gal.

Hev toads are very good for your garden. My Toby liked to hop with the toads and yet he never hurt them.

Go Raptors! 17-10

Ann, I'm sorry you were nauseous. I hope the new meds do the trick to keep the nausea at bay.

Still raining here a bit.

Opi, I've never liked raisins either, altho I like grapes. Never liked raisins.

Just took Billie out and stepped right in a big mud puddle! Got my sandals soaked and had to put them on the heat vent so they can dry out. At least Billie did her thing, despite the rain.

I believe in reincarnation and yes, slugs would be for really bad people.

How's the hand PJ? Any further developments?

Hiya my whining friends

Had a good sleep and feeling a lot better than last night. Feeling more positive and able to cope. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. It means so much to me. ❤️

Ann, so annoying for you with the nausea, I hope it shall come to pass.

I love frogs and toads. The first time I saw a toad it made me jump, luckily there were no bushes to fall into! It was so big and so commanding. In fact it’s the only one I’ve ever, except on tv.

I wonder what purpose slugs do, I mean, usually everything on God’s earth serves a purpose, usually

Raining here too, all the time, it seems!

Mags, I'm glad you're feeling a bit more settled. Fear of the unknown is challenging for most of us. Keep the faith!

Least, I don't mind grapes either. Not sure why raisins bug me so much.
Hard not to step in puddles with all this rain. Hope you're keeping warm. How's your tummy?

Good morning Whiners, I've been up for over an hour but I've nothing much to whine about yet apart from the persistent rain, rain and more rain. Mr D.B is not back in work until next Monday and I had loads of jobs lined up for him in the garden but it's just too wet. I can almost guarantee that on Monday the rain will disappear and the sun will shine.

Chicory, I rarely sleep through the alarm too, I'm usually up and dressed and turn it off before it goes off anyway. I don't know what happened yesterday, I must have been really tired.
I'm always logged on here via my mobile phone but I don't post from it unless I really have to, it's too much like hard work, but I do read the posts on it when I'm sat in the car waiting or whatever.

Least, Billie piddling on the rug 2 or 3 times a year isn't too bad, strange she doesn't let you know when she needs to 'go.' I suppose like us they're all different and she's a good girl for you most of the time.

I detest raisins too Opi and how people eat those chocolate covered ones is beyond me!

Hevyn, I've had our heating on this week too and I've got the fire on now, it's ridiculous having to put it on in June, but I felt so cold. I'll be sorry when the bill comes in.

I'm sorry that you're still suffering with nausea Ann, hopefully it will settle over the next couple of days. Just listen to what your body's telling you and take it easy. xx

Good morning Venuscat, I hope all is well in your world, much love to you.

P.J I quite like the idea of bad people being reincarnated as slugs.

Good morning Mags and I'm glad you slept well and are feeling more positive. Stay strong, things have a way of working out. xx

See you all later. xx

YES! Thank you Suki. Bubba just asked me what day it was...I had to look it up...retirement does that to ya. I should have come here first.

It is overcast but the roadway is dry so it must have stopped last night some time. Not sure about today, I think the good mall this morning and those dang meds this afternoon. Surely I will get used to them, lol.

Happy Friday everyone.
