well done park runners especially Spence running there and back again as well. I've been a parkrun tourist the last couple of weeks. a new one started 10 weeks ago nearer home but I help run the disabled cycling club in the other one. Last week the club wasn't on so I tried the nearer one, hard going as it was more like cross country but very nice and a lot fewer entries than my usual one. Yesterday I went to Darlington park run. Pretty, well kept park, smaller field again and just 8 seconds short of my PB at 27.02.
As most of you know we lost Bear on Friday! He had a large tumour on his prostrate which had spread to his lymph nodes and had been unwell for several weeks. The vet said he was going to run into serious trouble in a very short time so rather than give him painkillers to just prolong his discomfort he went to the Rainbow Bridge. We are heartbroken and FP Jnr has taken it worst. OH said shall we scrap the weekend away (canoe club event) but I said it was better to go and keep busy.
FP Jnr and I went to The Festival Of Thrift in Darlington (after the park run). We went last year and this year was even better! All about recycling, upcycling and general thriftiness. I was shattered when I got back to the caravan and slept most of the evening.
Today I walked Evie and then spent about three hours sat on the edge of the river helping to start the canoes/kayaks for the slalom.
DL, FC3 doesn't sound too demanding but 'the bus' you need to educate him about trains!
Spence, Jerry for the Garmin! He's a kind of pacemaker!
MC hope you are feeling better.
Trig, lumpy 10k, you had to walk and you can do it in less than an hour! Amazing!!!
Daffy, you are a star anyway you don't need to be headlines to prove it.
Chuggy, Bear started having trouble poo-ing a few weeks ago. What came out was tiny and Slug-like (not Sluggie-like) and sorry if anyone is eating at the moment. We took him to the vets and tablets didn't help so she suggested it might be an enlarged prostrate (he's 11 now so old man troubles). As he was still entire she said castration might help as the hormones leave his system the prostrate should shrink (so don't go to the docs guys if you are having trouble poo-ing). He is still going into trying to poo mode and nothing is happening. We gave him cooked meat at the weekend that we get from the carvery and boy did that act like rocket fuel. Only trouble was it was too effective! Boy did this house stink! He has never been a fat dog or greedy for a German Shepherd cross but he is a fluffy bag of bones at the moment. Vets tomorrow again I think.
Loving the Shady Pines scenario JFF. Sounds like it would make a great comedy. As for the weight loss, yes I am maintaining it but I want to lose another stone at least but it aint wanting to be lost! I don't want to throw in the towel at this stage but I could with not having to pay each week.
DL, FC3 is a bit older and I'm surprised he is still in FC. I suppose he is seen as vulnerable though. You are certainly getting a variety.
Tubs, is your new horse box going to be made by Lego or the Lilliputians? lol. You will have to get a smart car to tow it with.
