sanderson, I did not think of rabies, but I believe it is very rare where we are and I have never heard anyone suffer from it.

The tetanus shot is common. My ankle is still a bit swollen and tender but I am able to get around. Cannot wear a high sided shoe yet.

TD. The dog is medium size,and has not bitten anyone else and yesterday as I was walking up the road to my home my neighbour had the two dogs with him and this dog lunged at me but luckily he had a firm hold on the leash. He was looking after it for the day for his girl friend. He did look a bit embarrassed.

WE are having some wonderful weather here, zero to start the morning and then lovely sunshine to enjoy the fall leaves of all colours.  Cannot mow the lawn as it is too wet all day; season of mists and mellow fruitfulness etc. A lot of fog in the early morning.

Definitely the end of the Fall sun now for a whole week of rain. I will never get that last cut of the lawn that I wanted.

I had to get some more anti-biotic medication for my foot as it started to get a little swollen and sore again.  I should have had more but I  did not think to ask what now after the first three days of meds. All should be well now as after one day it is already feeling better. Four more days to go.

Do take care of that foot! The older we get, the slower the blood circulation in the lower extremities.

Not much doing in the garden right now as too much rain has made it rather hard to shred leaves etc.  I have several bags waiting but I seem to be busy doing something else whe the sun does shine.

Snow on the mountain passes so we watch the snow lin on the surrounding hills coming lower day by day, something I was never able to do in the low-lying area where I lived in Bedfordshire,  England,  where standing on a hill 100 feet elevation one could see for miles.

 It is nearly four weeks now, TD, and still not quite healed completely so I have to be careful not to knock it against anything and there is still a little swelling but is is getting better, slowly.

But it has made me rather wary of strange dogs now, as I had a little jolt the other day when I went to collect the leaves from my neighbour and her dog was off leash and ran at me and started barking and I must admit it rather scared me.  I explained to her why I acted a bit scared was because of the suddenness of it. She was concerned but no harm done, the dog was doing its job but was not dangerous. It was a little dog.

KJ, My dear, please take care. Foot health gets harder to maintain with each year. It's strange to me that all cities and towns don't have leash laws, but that is a local prerogative. Thank goodness most dogs are friendly or well behaved.

Our first snow of the season here in British Columbia. As usual it looked pretty. falling down most of the day.  One or two degrees increase in temperature and it will all melt away. I hope.

My heart breaks for California.

200 miles from the southern Woolsey Fire and maybe 300 miles from the northern Camp fire. The Woolsey Fire has filled the North Valley and my Central (southern) Valley. The sky was "cloudy" looking but it was really smoke blotting out the sun. I was suppose to drive up to Sacramento Sunday for my birthday dinner and cake with the kids but we have pushed it back to Monday, maybe Tuesday. Their smoke up there is horrible, worse than mine, as they are maybe only 100 miles from the Camp Fire. I don't do wild fire smoke very well. Hey, I am almost 70. Wink

I feel for you sanderson as i know how the smoke can hang around for weeks at a time and it can get very depressing.

I know I mentioned snow, but snow beats fire every time.

So many people every where are losing everything and things will never be the same again for those that lose all.  It will take a generation for family to be normal. the children to be who will have know nothing different.

At the moment I am really getting rid of a lot of the clutter I have gathered since my husband died and I am cheerfully making decisions about what to  save and what to give away or trash. That is because I want to do it.  But to have that decision taken away from me by fire is certainly a different situation.

Take care, my friend.

This morning we are watching on TV the Remembrance Day service at the War Memorial in downtown Ottawa. We should have gone to be there in person but a family matter prevented that. Sunny and very cold day. Amazing to see some of the vets especially the old ones from Second World War. And of course this is the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. Lest We Forget.

Poem by Canadian poet, soldier and physician John McCrae.


In Flanders Fields
By JOHN MCCRAE

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.

TD: I have been watching the Remembrance Service from Ottawa and I was very impressed with the singing of "In Flanders Fields" sung by the Ottawa Children's Choir.

You might like the version below, based on John Macrae's poem in memory of the seamen.

IN WATERS DEEP

In ocean wastes no poppies blow,
No crosses stand in ordered row.
There young hearts sleep...beneath the wave...
The spirited, the good, the brave.

But stars a constant vigil keep
For them who lie beneath the deep.
'tis true you cannot kneel in prayer
On certain spot and think, "He's there".

But you can to the ocean go...
See whitecaps marching row on row.
Know one for him will always ride...
In and out... with every tide.

And when your span of life is passed
He'll meet you at the "Captains' Mast."

And they who mourn on distant shore
For sailors who'll come home no more,
Can dry their tears and pray for these
Who rest beneath the heaving seas...

For stars that shine and winds that blow
and whitecaps marching row on row,
And they can never lonely be
For when they lived...they chose the sea.
