Long passages of time in hospitals/rehab

 I spent nearly 6 months in various of the above.  Safely home where they don't want to take my blood pressure every time I blink, I hope to give any remaining readers here a tour - what I saw, thoughts and sheer horror - 

First on the program is an outpost named Driftwood which wags like us immediately changed to Drif ting away wood a real bitch to type.  The place is ghastly, too.  More of which in the future.

 Richie and and I saw it and never managed to actually go in.  Our loss has been amended with yesterday's visit to Sweet Wheat, which is an authentic French Patisseriurveyors of such as baguettes, country sour dough a French tradition.  It lived up to it's authenticity.  Get your languid butts in there for a bit of crisp but chewy baguette the chewy being a hallmark  of French bread.  Combine it with Lovely French butter (available at Ralph's)

Other delicacies include (but are not limited to such as) tarts, macarons) $6)   They have a nice open counter of wines and champagne - you want authentic?  pop the cork!

Read the menu at  sweet heat bakery  Now go back on your diet.  

as if.

When is 'way too soon too soonWHEN THE cHRIST MAS TREE LOT is filling up!

Cost me - I slipped and fell on our wooden living room floor - and broke my left hip; followed by surgery  and then 2 weeks in physical therapy for another 10 days.  Now I am blessedily home and damned happy to be here.  Many were the events in rehab all to be related soon but this go around with hip repair has taken more out of me than I had thought it would.

Apparently the only thing you bring home from physical therapy

Is incontinence  and it is by no means welcome.  More on Drifting Awaywood tomorrow

Buying a Cat is Not Easy

 We have specifications instructions for the cat will have a forever house. (ours)  Must be a tuxedo cat.  Must be older than six years because the cat-in-residency is eight years old.  I thought I'd found one until Richie Keen Eyes pointed out they were all born this year.  Teenagers and at 81 and 80 we're too old to be chasing kittens who are often extremely agile and who also can jump a helluva lot farther straight up than us.

But I have detectives beavering away for other non-profit charities that profit from the sale of kittens AND cats. .
