However, in between we share birthdays with friends and generally keep things going here at home and in the garden.
Rina and I off to a friend's mother's 85th birthday party. Skabenga got in on the act as well!
And of course, the walks on the golf course:
Skabenga, panting from his run with Eddy,
watches as Mama photographs the grasses and flowers
We watch the sun come up over Marquard
He posed beautifully when I asked him to !
Is this my good side, Mum?
On Sunday morning Grant and I joined a group of other Marquard bikers on a breakfast run. This was our first ride since September...
...and would be our last for several weeks as Grant was going for hand surgery
I mentioned to a few Blogger friends (on Facebook) that we'd be in the city on Monday. Grant was due to see the orthopedic surgeon who would perform Carpel tunnel surgery on Grant.
We were at the doctor's rooms by 10. He sent Grant to a neurologist in the basement of the hospital building for a nerve test. The receptionist said: "Our machine is in for service; I can book you in on Thursday"
What could we do or say? We have a 320km round trip to see the doctor and have to return. Oh well.
So, no! Grant didn't have said surgery. And I'm not in Bloemfontein for the next few days. We're back in Marquard and as this post is aired, the dogs and I will be on the golf course enjoying the first hour of the day.
The trip to and from the city was a pleasure; the surrounding farm lands and paddocks along the freeway are lush and green. The animals are fat and sleek. Life's good !
