Today is Tuesday 18th August

Good morning! Up with the lark…… pigeons………geese……….blackbirds…… at 5am.
Hubby was already awake so let the dog out, but she has been restless, so at 7 am I gave up all hope of getting back to sleep, got up and dressed then did my exercises and took her out for a walk.
There were quite a few dogs around towing their owners. One guy had 4 on separate leads, 3 JRTs and a yorkie. It looked like he had a miniature dog sled team. I was glad to see he had a pocket full of poo bags and used them twice in a distance of about 50 yards.

It’s sunny again today so the tourists will be out in force. I have a list of shopping we could do so we might have a field trip. Hubby needs some certain strength garlic capsules and we know of only one place he can get them.
Good news is his CT scan came back clear, so that is a huge relief and we can now concentrate on other health and dietary matters that need attention.

Not much else going on really.  Second day of our chili today. Funny how it always tastes better on the second day!

Take care and keep safe.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Glad your hubby’s scan was clear. Hope your shopping goes well and that you get what you need and it’s stress free.

    • Just got back. I now have a new pair of slippers, several bottles of multivits (like hens teeth locally) but no garlic! It wasn’t a bad trip.

        I find it’s very hit or miss with items I need/want as well. I think it’s more than people hoarding or, as in where you are, a swarm of tourists buying everything in sight — I think the shortages are also caused by either slow delivers from the source to the retailer or a shortage of them to begin with because so many companies have shut down and/or have limited staff working.

      • We know that one major chain had a shortage of drivers so the depots were well stocked, they just couldn’t get the goods to the stores. The tourists clear the shelves every day in the Summer, but we find it strange that stuff people don’t usually buy is flying off the shelf. It’s as if ‘I’ll have it even if I don’t know what it is’ syndrome!

        Yes, there are strange shortages here as well.
