Almost-end-of-October

After a long stretch of continuous rainy days, we’ve had a couple days of sun. A welcome relief!  But,I feel like such a whiner, when back home in Maryland, they got between 3 & 9 inches of SNOW !!  Way early for that stuff. It was heavy & wet & there were alot of power outages due to lines & trees down.

Dudley continues to hobble around, poor thing. And, we can’t remove the protective collar, because, as soon as it’s off, he goes right for the splint & tries to rip it off! We have an appointment @ the vet hospital Thursday for him to be seen. I’m hoping they @ least change the splint on the operative leg-it smells awful & is grungy! I wouldn’t be surprised if he did the same darn thing as before, jump from yard to road again. The other day, he went right back to the edge & was looking-I’m sure if someone had been walking by, he would’ve gone after them.

Every Friday morning, there is a feria, or farm market, downtown. One can buy all sorts of things, from produce, meat, baked goods, underwear, to plants & cut flowers. The produce is locally grown & cheaper than that in the grocery stores. So, we usually go with our market bag & list. Along with the usual things, we bought corn on the cob this week. It looked good, nicely filled-out, no worms, but when cooked, it was tasteless-what a disappointment. I’d love some Maryland sweet corn about now.

I sure don’t miss winter in the States!
