The Moon And A Tractor Wheel.

A big thank you to my favourite commenters for your good wishes concerning my health. I haven't been to the doctor about it. I shall tell you why: I haven't been well enough. Ha ha that was a joke. Except it is true. Another reason is I don't want to sit in the doctors waiting room coughing and spluttering and spreading germs to everyone else.
There is another reason. This cough fever virus is a nation-wide thing. I looked it up on google -yes, I know I shouldn't, but I did. There is nothing doctors can do about it apparently. Anti-biotics don't help. The advice is take plenty of fluids and eat plenty. I have been following that advice. It takes three weeks to start feeling better so I am almost there.

To lighten the mood. Here is a photo of Mia the German Shepherd with her favourite ball of the moment.

Mia the German Shepherd

A friend phoned yesterday. She was nearby and wanted to visit. I was out walking Mia the German Shepherd when she phoned and in the middle of a coughing fit. I told her it would be a bad idea to visit, She could also hear it was a bad idea. After we said our goodbyes. I walked on for a few minutes still coughing and spluttering like a good 'un. That thing happened where you think you have hung up the phone but you haven't. I heard her voice coming from my pocket. John? John are you okay? I pretended I hadn't heard and hung up properly. I was so embarrassed by my retching.

I wish I could think of something amusing to say to lighten this post but I can't. Wait! I just remembered this photo I took of my Beautiful Daughter Jodie setting up the telescope she got for Christmas. I manipulated it a bit as a joke. I shall now attempt to put both the photos on here. Hang on a minute.

BD Jodie setting up her new telescope

I have manipulated the photo. Don't tell her that is a tractor wheel. She thinks it's the moon.

Thanks for calling by. I will be back soon.


  1. I hope you keep feeling better and better. BD odie looks in good health. You have not mentioned her daughter in a while. Has her health improved?

  2. Hey John, did you know you were suffering from the same ailment as our Queen? How's that for an honour... grins. Seriously I am pleased that your health is improving. Loved the photos, lucky girl... gosh I always wanted a telescope.

  3. As long as you have a sense of humour life is worth carrying on with. I'm not letting Tom see this post as he will start on about wanting a telescope again, lol
