I was wondering what was making all the birds in the garden give off their distress calls until a dog fox walked casually as you like, across the lawn, he was the biggest I have ever seen easy as big as Jessy. I had visions of more vets bills if she had seen him too. Her neck has gone down with the antibiotics she was on and the vet seemed happy although she has to go back next Friday to be checked again. Ben and Gus will go too to get their annual shots, the vet examined Ben last week and his knee had been broken and set in a weird position, poor wee cratir. He had a limp when I took him in but it is heaps better now and doesn't seem to bother him at all.
I was chopping a couple of wee trees down this morning and burning some of the dead branches in a brazier made from an old oil drum but the breeze has picked up a lot and sparks igniting spot fires so I have knocked it on the head for now.
I am thinking of a wee holiday to the Greek islands in the Ionian Sea with Alan and Angie, there are some >50% off deals for a weeks yacht hire at the start of October, I have always fancied sailing the Greek isles and that time of year is nice temps and the water is still warm. There were lots of offers pick up the boat in Lefkas and drop it off in Athens but that is a fair hike in 6 days sailing and the winds are usually light in October so I think it may be wiser to go with dropping her back to the same place we get her from then we can just enjoy a couple of hours sailing in the day and some exploring / swimming, sounds blissful ehh lol. I was trying to get John and Miriam to come too to share the cost but they cant this time unfortunately.
