Friends, We apologize for being late with our 'blog' today. A couple of things came into play here. One was the old girl, herself. She slept in and had to rush off to her appointment this morning and only had time to feed us and upload Aunty L's blog before hightailing it out of here.
Now that word 'hightail' begs an question and hopefully an answer ... Grammy doesn't have a tail so how can she hightail it? Well, Whiskers explained it to me. She says hightailing means to hurry up and get out of there and doesn't have anything to do with having a tail.
Well, I, Sweetie, Googled it.... and guess what! It does have to do with a tail. It is originally about when white-tailed deer see danger they lift their white tails and run for their lives. *Giggles* I'd love to see Grammy lift her tail and run out of here like a deer... but her hightailing is more like a tortoise lumbering across a field. Not at all graceful, nor swift.
Not only that, if she did do a hightailing manoeuvre she'd probably take a swan-dive... and not a graceful one either. Hey, the woman is a disaster on two feet. Pity the poor neighbours, people on the street and us. But we have learned to steer clear of those disasterous feet. Smart little duffers, we are.
Okay so enough of her hightailing it out of here. After her appointment to loosen up stiff muscles, tendons, ligaments etc. she headed back home to us... and we planned to work on the blog with her but now she was like loose jello ... with a mushy brain which was of no use to us. We had to plop her into her chair, turn on a heating pad and let her sleep away the afternoon. I tell you, these old folk are something else.
So friends, It looks like we have no blog today. Nope! But we will share this with you... For an old codger she isn't half bad. No siree. She has her good points -especially when doling out the food rations and giving cuddles.
See you next week and this time hopefully with something to say.
We love you, friends. And don't forget to smile, it may be the only smile someone sees today and it will mean so much to that person.
