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.

Morning Tony,

Glad things went well at the Dr.s and the Queen is obtaining more tests.

I had to look up Grand Manan Island and it surely is an interesting place. Learn so much from these blogs.

Have a great day.

Morning Tony, something like a mother-in-laws kiss at the moment very cool. Sun out, and very warm temps by the weekend, mid 20's for a few days, Indian Summer at its best.
A strange part of the world to have dulse being a common denominator for a conversation. This year not good harvest, a storm at the start of the season rolled the rocks and stripped much of the dulse off before it could be harvested.

Morning, Tony,

Just a quick greeting this morning - I'm heading north to the prairie myself tomorrow, and I'm way behind getting everything done. I'll check in a time or two while I'm gone. Keep yourself in good health and enjoy that warm weather while you have it!

Good morning Tony, how nice to have made another friend in the neighbourhood. Most folks are friendly if given half a chance, just so many are afraid when living in a large city because you don't know the kind of person you are dealing with. You could not do that in a city like Toronto unless its a close knit community within the city itself where people know each other. Just too much crime to be too trustful.

Looks like we will be seeing more warm weather in the 70s today with lots of sunshine once dawn breaks. Sure is dark out at this time of the morning. Time to put the coffee pot on. Have a wonderful day dear one. Enjoy your day.
