My visit with the doctor went well yesterday.
He's scheduling an MRI as requested by the Queen and consulting a hematologist regarding my clotting problems.
The Queen can be as persuasive with the medical profesion as she can be with me.
Abey went foe 2 walks yesterday. The first along the gopher trails and again in the evening when we walked to the corner store to pick up milk for the morning.
On the way home from the corner store I stopped and chatted with a gentleman who was sitting on his front step enjoying the beautiful evening. The chat turned into a general meeting when a friend of mine joined in then a lady who knew the gentleman also joined the conversation after petting Abbey. Living beside the corner store makes his home busy place in the evening.
The gentleman said he was going in when everybody left for a taste of dulse, a seaweed prized by many as a health food, and is part of the economy of zgrand Manan Island where the Queen was born. When I told him the Queen was born on Grand Manan Island, the dulse capital of the world, he said he had acquired the taste for the weed at his birthplace, Touro, Nova Scotia.
It sure is nice to see that people on the prairie can be as friendly as those in Newfoundland when given the chance.
