Home again!

Hi there, I got to leave the hospital yesterday after two days of IV fluids and antibiotics. The nurses at ORMC, Lewis Pavilion were awesome! My thanks go out to Chuck, Sharon, Nick, Faith, Mary, Monique, and Thu and others whose names I missed. Everyone on the 8th floor was kind and supportive. Drs Shah and Korman were great too and I appreciate the care. But I am so glad to be home with nurse Michael! A couple of lazy weekend days at home and I am sure to be right as rain. The dogs seem happy to hang out on the couch with me too. Just wanted to give you all a quick update. May the Lord Bless you and Keep you! Love, Wendy

Keys Trip 3

DON'T START HERE! Go to the first post regarding the keys trip and then read up for the best flow of the story. Now to continue, the following are photos from our snorkeling at Sombrero Light on Friday and a bit of fishing the last day. We caught over the course of the trip some nice Mahi Mahi, tripletail and ocean triggerfish. Much of it is in the freezer. The last picture here though is three chefs as we prepared mahi fish tacos! Yum! here are a queen angel and at puffer fish... a dinner plate size turtle and a friendly and curious Bermuda chubb... And finally Michael's big Mahi and the cooks in the kitchen making tacos! I hope you enjoy the photos as we sure had a great time in the Keys!! We are happy to fish and snorkel anywhere and anytime! Love to all of you and hope that all is well in your world. At the risk of boring you with more travel posts I will get some info and pictures up soon from my recent trip to San Francisco for the Association of Zoological Horticulture conference. TTFN, Wendy

It can be very good to be a horse!

I just had to share this with you as it struck me funny yesterday. I have a 29 year old horse, Callie. She has a pretty good life as she hasn't been ridden for probably 10 years and her only job is to eat grass in the pasture. Every 6-8 weeks we need to trim her feet and it isn't really her favorite thing to do. So before she get's her feet trimmed she gets a mild horse seditive. Now yesterday she had her "cocktail" then got a bath, i gave her a hair cut and then the farrier, Bob Roser, came out to trim her feet. While she is standing for what is a horse pedicure she gets a massage from both me and Bob's wife Katy. Oh to be a horse! she basically had a full spa treatment! I should be so lucky, right? On a different note I will post some pictures of the week Michael and I spent recently in the Florida Keys. Of course you all may be tired of pitures of fish but some of these will be underwater again while we were snorkeling, so stay tuned! Love and Blessings to you all, Wendy
