Today's post will be relatively short since Gail and I have been with my mother the past few days following her eye surgery and haven't been doing too much in the way of outings except visits to the doctors' office and a couple of trips to Publix.

Gail is sound asleep at the doctor's office.  The only problem occurred when she stretched out and bumped the foot pedal and caused the chair to begin reclining...oops!

Gail and I headed home Saturday afternoon, but first we made a stop by Viscaya Prado Veterinary Clinic in Cape Coral to visit with Dr. William Kroll, Sandy and Kim.  Dr. Kroll was the primary care veterinarian for our Shih Tzus, Gizmo (2007) and Gadget (2010), and our cat Sneakers when we lived in Ft. Myers.  We spent Saturday mornings at the clinic for approximately 1-1/2 years for fluid treatments for Gizmo when her kidneys started to fail so we got to know everyone there pretty well.

When we returned home, Gail went crazy when she saw Roger.  She was wiggling around like she was made out of jelly.  She hadn't forgotten about Sneakers either...  she chased after him just like she did before we left, oh well, we'll just keep plugging away at trying to teach her to respect him and his space.

Today has been pretty quiet.  It was 35 degrees and windy when we woke up this morning which as those of you that live in Florida know means that you stay inside and hibernate.  We made a short trip out for breakfast at Bob Evans (it took about 10 minutes for Ms. Gail to settle down) and then drove past the eagle's nest (only saw 1 eagle sitting near the nest) before coming back home.  We've had some on and off challenges with trying to keep Gail and Sneakers behaving themselves, but otherwise it's been pretty quiet.

We can't wait to see what this week has in store for us!
