The Real Reason Our Vet Lives in a Nice Home and Drives a Nice Car

Poor Maggie got into it with something sharp - a nice little slice and a couple of small puncture wounds. We don't think it was another animal but rather some piece(s) of metal. We took her in to the animal ER last week, where they shaved much of her back and put in some stitches.

As M says, it's kind of like she got a butt lift.

She's been a complete angel about the antiobiotics, and having to stay inside and leave everything alone, but she is really, really, really pissed off about the Elizabethan collar.She got the stitches out yesterday and is doing great. But I have to say: This is our fourth kitty ER visit this year and we have spent more than twice what my first car cost. Yes, that probably dates me.

Big News!

My bestiest friend and my wonderful husband made it possible for me to get my very own new camera this last week. I've really wanted a little tiny point-and-shoot, not at all complicated, easy-to-download digital camera for some time. I found exactly what I wanted (Canon PowerShot SD1000), BF and WH provided the financing, and Amazon delivered it on Friday.

It really IS easy to operate - and we know this because I was able to figure it out in a very short period of time, including managing to get the photos onto the computer and, even more importantly, managing to find them again once I put them there.

So here's the obligatory picture of the cute kid:

And here's a picture of a recently-finished knitted item. Yarn is Tess Designer Yarn 50% angora/50% merino purchased at Stitches West last year. Pattern is from Lorna's Laces: Simplest Sweater For Baby (it's true). Sweater is a gift for a co-worker who had a baby about a month ago. The sweater was actually finished before the baby arrived but I wanted to be able to take a photo before gifting it.

More to come!
