3WD Action

I snapped this one at a recent 4WD rally event that The Most DH and I attended. We had a great day and the only damage sustained was the passenger side mirror got ripped right off.

Hey! That tree jumped right out in front of us, shouting "Stop logging now or there will be more attacks!"

Bonne Chance: Quo Vadis?

Our feral friend had what I call an "away day" yesterday. Where do you go Mate? And what happened that you return to me with a limp?

Of his dog attack wounds - still no luck tracking the blighter - all but one have healed. But that one has formed an abscess. He has let me work on it a bit, however, he clearly could use some professional help as he also has a bad case of truly foul diarrhea. Truly foul diarrhea that he has little control of.

Where are my gum boots? I need gum boots - STAT!

My last attempt to crate him for the vet left me with some angry red souvenirs, and a painful morning with the cotton balls and no luck there yet. He clearly remembers the last time I boxed him.

I cant blame him for my wounds, I pushed it past where I should have backed off. This pesky 'doing the right thing' feeling is a tough one to shake off, even if you arent sure if you are - or not.

If he does not get rapidly better, I may have to rent a trap. Not that I think he'd fall for it - not for a minute! But Id rather not wait till he is too weak to fight me. And now with this new limp...well...


This pic of him is from a happier day early this month.

Bonne Chance: Peaceful nap

Since I last blogged about my feral friend, he has been attacked by a dog. I did what I could for his wounds, which were not as bad as they could have been. Bonne Chance is still not having anything to do with being boxed for the vet - no small wonder there really. The dogs owner better hope I never find out who he is...although it is only a matter of time as it comes down my street every morning at 6:15am. I suspect they just let it out, rather than take it for a walk. Morons. What goes around comes around.

There is progress...I can use scissors again! Other things are still very hard to do, for example: picking up a glass or can to drink from. If the nerve is capable of healing, it can take 6-12 months to do so. The surgeon who repaired it is not confident, but it aint over yet!

I had wanted to do a post that wasnt about my botched carpal tunnel - as well as bring you up to date. But I squandered too much time at There, I fixed, and now Ive got to scamper!
