Yesterday was B-day for Jack. Delivered to the vet's in Okehampton at 8.30am and picked up again at 2.00, a limp rag who had to be carried to the car and who slept the rest of the day. When I gave him to the nurse and we were going through the pre-op checks, she looked at him and said:

Ten days of this.....
He is NOT happy.
He will be soon and he was the day before yesterday:

Welcome to three new followers who have joined thanks to Rusty Duck's lovely post about her visit here (http://www.rustyduck.net/2014/01/18/dartmoor-rambling/). Lovely to have you. Creeping slowly towards 100 which will be VERY exciting if I ever get there.
The proofs of the cards arrived yesterday and two are fantastic (Magpies and the hole in the wall) and the others will be with some tweaking and borders. The Rainbow Sheep almost look like a painting which I was worried about at first but the more I look at it, the better I like it. So, until next time, here's the eunuch after a walk in the rain; he seems to have picked up a piece of leaf, at least I hope it's leaf.....
