Talked to Charlie's dad last night, they started preparing him for the facial surgery yesterday. they did a tracheotomy to replace the vent connection that was put in when he first got to the hospital. They said he had more and worse injuries than first thought, when they got him to hospital. I think, according to the report, that his surgery will be sometime today, but not sure. Just keep him and his family in your prayers. I'll update when I hear anything.
We have a thief in our midst. His name is Huckleberry, a 12 year old JRT (Jack Russell Terrier). Never have we had a problem with him getting into the trash, until the last couple of months. As soon as we goo to bed, we hear things rattling around, now. And, this morning, he'd done a magic trick. I keep a towel in my chair, and when we are out of the room, I keep a box setting in it, to discourage it becoming a dog bed. It is a lift chair, and they aren't cheap, so I'd like to keep it clean and nice as long as possible. Well, this morning, I walked into the living room, and there was the towel in the floor in front of the chair. The box, which is full of papers, cards, and craft stuff, was still setting in the chair. Yes, he's learned to steal my towel when it is chilly. Otherwise he parks himself on the leather love seat, to his 'dad's' dismay.
I believe that we have another nest of Cardinals in the bushes under our bedroom window, next to the front porch. I see a female and male fly away when the door is opened. This is the 3rd year they've nested there, and I'm going to try and get pictures of them, before they fledge.
