Quite a week...

Its been quite a mixed week and half with so much going on. We did go to our last 40's weekend at Pickering and the weather was very good to us. we had a great weekend.A few photo's below.

                                        I got not one but two new hats while there and this is one of them.

                       This gorgeous little dog was so tired after walking around with his owners all day. He got lots of attention and when I got a cuddle he fell asleep on me.
                                          The gentleman to my right is a veteran and such a lovely old man.

                                        Mike takes photo's of all the events and has his camera disguised as an old one.

                               On board the steam train..

This is the other new hat and outfit..

                                         The nights in the pub are always fun..

                              This little one watched the whole parade from his window and was so cute..

                                                                More fun pictures..
                                         This little one is always at this event with his parents raising money for help for heroes.

                                                 Another night of laughter.

                                          This cheeky one also get lots of attention and takes it all in his stride..

                      We enjoyed the weekend very much.. Then back to reality.
 Back to work and flipping shifts from hell to say the least.
 Barrie has been having mega problems and pain from what we suspected was a hernia. We went to the hospital on the Wednesday and the following day were given a date for surgery just a week later. He goes in to hospital in the morning for the surgery. Wednesday was quite a day, dentist in the morning which cost more than we thought. Later we picked up injections from the hospital so I can give them to him every day. ( Barrie is on Warfarin and has to come of for the op and have daily injections instead to keep his blood thin ) we came out of the hospital and the car stopped and no life at all. To cut a long story short, a tow to the garage and new computer parts and a few hundred pounds later we have the car back. Quite a day, followed by more shifts from hell. Making me think seriously about retiring and soon.
     Well sorry for the rambling. Keep Barrie in your thoughts for tomorrows surgery.
                       See you soon

I am always so transported back in time when I see your posts here and on FB about the 40's days events! THANK YOU so much...if only we could time travel! You look smashing in your outfits...
We will keep Barrie in our prayer for a quick recovery from his surgery. Dennis will be seeing a pain specialist on the 31st for injections...he is once again in so much pain. Some days it seems we can not win...I am off to the dentist for 5 visits this next month and our car is acting up at times...I can so relate to what you are going through.
You inspire us to go on with the fun you have in your lives...bless your hearts always.
How is your neighbors pretty kitty...still coming by for visits?
Love Karla
