Celebrating July 4th Down Under

I could have said Aussie style but sheesh all we had were some ribs I slathered with Emeril's Essence and some olive oil and baked them in the oven for a few hours. This we ate with relish and downed some Golden Grove Muscat Liqueur whilst watching the last State of Origin footy match betwixt Queensland and New South Wales. NSW won darnit but hubby shall live.

Hrmmmm, Tiger got in a very unfair fight with a cat a couple of weeks ago and he lost. When I got home from work I found a very small patch of kitty fur just beyond the back steps and Tiger was moaning and whining and all gimpy and refused to get off the sofa once he got inside, so what ensued was a long trip to the vet when C~ got home a few minutes later. After a checkup and some antibiotics, pain killers, and compresses were prescribed we got home with a dopey doggy that was mighty hungry and all sooky to boot.

Tigez is all better now thank goodness but he's been following me around like he's afraid of having me out of his sight. He even comes when I call him now, too. Dunno if the cat incident has anything to do with it but whatever, it's working lol.

I've been lucky enough to have had to call in sick the past 2 days with a bout of gastritis apparently picked up from work and today is my normal day off during this months schedule so I'm trying to get a few things done but all my body wants to do is take a nap.

It doesn't help that it went from nice and warm this morning to cool and windy, either. Feels like a knife cutting through ya when it blows....brrrrrrrrr. So, that's what I've been up to other than the usual housework on top of work work. GACK! Real life sucks sometimes don't it?

Ah well, life goes on and will improve I'm sure of it.

Poor Tiger. I remember when I worked at one animal hospital there was this greyhound that had issues with the neighbor cat. In one month, he came in 5 times after being beat up by this cat. The owners finally saw it one day, large orange Garfield like cat. The dog went outside and the cat sat on the fence and when the poor pooch got close, he jumped on his head. No joke!
I am glad he is feeling better.
