My heavens Cal you get an A+++++++ Plus for all your TLC for sweets. Sorry to read blood infection but that new med sure sounds strong and powerful. Sweets sounds determined and you definitely are. That should equal success for sure. Glad your bank ordeal is over.

Good news sweets is more alert and eating now and you are finally feeling better. Good!! Use this time to relax and get much needed sleep.

My state is Pennsylvania.

Prayers for sweets and you too sleeping better tonight.  :)

A Wolf, an Eagle, and show-stealing Mallards - UPDATE April 8, 2024

Bald eagle catches mallard - Sept. 2019
Donna and I arrived at the WRI when it was still dark, hoping to see the fisher, mink, fox, raccoon, and/or eagle, before she had to leave for home. The most we saw, though, as it got light, was a few seconds of the eagle landing in a shoreline tree out the window before heading over the lake. We wondered why he didn’t come for the ham fat we had waiting for him so Donna could see his dramatic swoop and grab.

After Donna left, I saw what might have distracted the eagle. Looking up from the computer screen, some 30 mallards were cruising as a group along the far shore with a wolf walking along with them on the shore. I’d never seen anything like that before and really wanted the picture, but they disappeared behind a wall of trees before I could click. Waiting to see if they would come into sight farther on, they didn’t. They must have settled near where they disappeared, which I doubly thought a couple hours later when the eagle returned and and went right to that spot and began making fast dives disappearing for a second or two, rising into view and diving over and over like he wasn’t getting anything. Then he disappeared like maybe he did and had flown off to eat it or deliver it to his mate in the nest. I’ll never know, but it brought back a memory. Where he was diving was the same spot where from which Donna and I had seen an eagle take a duck some five years earlier on September 28, 2019. She and I were sitting in a canoe a little over a tenth of a mile away from it when an eagle came flying low over the shoreline swamp and dipped down and grabbed a duck from the lake as I clicked. It was the first time I had seen something like that and I really hoped the picture would turn out, and it did!

None of the other expected critters put in an appearance today, but it was a good day of seeing the unusual as I worked.

4:53 OK!
Go Sweets!
Had a good day.  Did not wreck the van.  Got five dogs and four cats fixed and back to be adopted at Berea (ARF).  Was a harrowing experience in a confusing city Akron/ Canto/ Kent/ Talmadge.  I was lost when my Tom Tom ran out of battery and van had no ds' slot for charging.  I got help from a little old lady who was watering her flower beds out front.  She was apprehensive, but finally felt comfortable enough to tell me to go a block turn right, go a block and turn right again and you are there.  I tried it, but the second right was a traffic circle, and my GPS came on just long enough to send me the wrong way. LOL  It was nip and tuck for about an hour, but I got there just in time and everything worked out OK.  Coming back was a little easier, because a nice lady at the vet took my new phone and plotted my trip home on some kind of service on my phone. That phone sure is smart. Who knew? LOL I will attempt to learn how to do this with my phone.  Debbie says there are probably at least two ways to do it.  We will see.  I will drive for them again.
Karen is resting up from having visitors all day.  I will go get some supper now.  Don't know what.

Cal, Awww to you looking down and seeing sweets eyes shut and him in a deep sleep. I bet you stress a bit trying to be quiet to not wake up the dogs sleeping by the gate!! I hope today's shot #2 will show more improvement for sweets tomorrow.

I didn't have the special glasses to watch the eclipse so didn't but I did sit on my deck in the warm temp and just relaxed watching the colors get dimmer and birds quieter for a bit then everything was back to normal.  :) Was just a partial eclipse in my area. Was cool and interesting though. Were you able to watch it?

A Happy Birthday and More - UPDATE APRIL 9, 2024

Beaver
Being a workaholic with important deadlines, I made it a work day while Donna made it a celebration by bringing a great pot roast and apple pie and spending the day. Together, we deviated from my deadline work to watch what the first beaver of the year would do. Watching and snapping this picture from over a tenth of a mile away, we saw it go to the same place the mallards gathered a couple days ago, dive down, find vegetation, and go to a shoreline mound to eat it. He then repeated this activity a couple times until we saw the pattern. Once, as he was busy on his mound, a pair of mallards passed by undisturbed.

We watched the eagle fly by a couple times but with other goals in mind and refusing to do his or her swoop and grab.

Woodchuck
Woodchuck

The woodchuck appeared and showed his familiarity with the this place and its people by letting me zig zag close for a look and a click. His main interest was the green grass blades that are beginning to poke up.

Fisher
Fisher

The day started with a visit from the new fisher who was carrying off ham fat and paying no attention to me in the window. Eventually, he or she acknowledged my presence and let me click this picture.

Total Eclipse
Total Eclipse

Amazing to me was this picture of the eclipse taken in Vermont by a photographer who is a friend of a friend. I don’t know his name or how he could have done any better in capturing the aura of the event. I can only say thank you to my friend for sending it.

Thank you for all you do,

That wicker chair did not stand a chance. LOL
Thanks Cal.  Also thanks for checking obits.  At my and Neva's age that is a likely place for news.
I watched the bears playing quite a while yesterday.  I really miss knowing who they are.  I never could identify them as well as the mods did.  So if I see two together I just just call them Lucky and friend.  The vultures are back in MO.  The Eagles are growing like weeds.  The falcons are back at GSB. The geese are still covered in down when mom leaves for a while.  I am trying hard to catch them jumping from the eagle nests.
I will say bye for now and get a second cup of coffee which is already cold. LOL

5:15
Rainy and warm 57 degrees at 8:55
Need to go see foot doctor this morning.  Moved from Monday. He was called into surgery.
Karen has sore feet.  She will go see him next week.  She has trouble walking. I think he can help her.
She fed us with some left over walking tacos last night.  I enjoy eating them, but stomach gets upset later.  It was hard to get to sleep.  Plus, I started a cold yesterday morning.  By five pm I felt normal, and told Debbie I was over it already.  YAY for old antibodies I said.  This morning though the cough is back and nose is stuffy.  Weird pattern.  I guess it goes with age.  I took some Tussin and will still see the foot doctor.  I will wear a mask for him.
Please God let Neva be comforted and if possible let her know we care.
Bring your comfort to Sweets and Cal too very soon.  He is not an indoor goat. 
Comfort and heal Debbie too.  She is quiet about her discomfort, but it has been too long already.  She is wearing down. 
Now I will say CUL EV1 GBU all.

Good Morning,

Cal, You and sweets sound 'tuckered out'. You've got lots of other work with paperwork and other animals too on top of sweets.
Maybe when you mow you'll be able to relax some by just riding along .. being outside and with fresh air/pretty sky. Just focus on mowing and try to not think about worries .. zone out!! I hope that makes sense. That's what I do when I'd mow, garden, vacuum etc. Heck sometimes we all just need to get away from worries and thoughts.

Take care.

Yes I saw that OJ died.  I did not know it was cancer.  Thanks for that info.
 I have always felt a great disappointment about his life.  I loved his acting, athleticism, and personality right up until he did to his wife what he did.  Then I was 180 degrees against him.  I don't wish cancer on anyone, but I am not sorry he is no longer among us.
Now come on Sweets, Cal needs a break.  So on your feet please, and take a little drink.
