xmas day

A special photo of a special dog  this is furgus My son Paul and family's dog
( last weeks e.mail)

Just thought I'd let you know that we had to put Ferg down yesterday18,12,2012!  It was very sudden, he was fine on Monday (his birthday) and we went for a couple of walks around the lake; then he started to fit yesterday.  We took him to the vets who think it was a blood clot in his spine or brain :(.  He didnt suffer and it was all very quick, the kids are really upset as he has always been there as long as they can remember.
We took this pic  on Monday 18 dec :)

my last trip around Egypt


Cairo pre Arab spring


I went back to the steam museum today just to get another 3 photos the museum was open but again no electricity the workmen had also put dust covers over the outside of the windows, so it was even darker inside I tried taking photos with flash but the glass casing gave a reflection so only one or two shots came out half decent to keep,
the rest of the day was spent walking around Cairo down town part of the city where I came across quite a few different kinds of old machinery so you ladies will have to be happy with a boys toys blog today with a little bit of my other interest of buildings,

once on the website  click on he side panel, I am having a real bad day today but had a real nice day yesterday with my sister I am sure I slept half of the time.

This is and will most likely be e my last post Pam is taking my photos me and my cats look well don't i that depends on whether MY central heating is working or not sometimes I sweat profusely and will have a double change of pyjamas save the bed wear getting wet the  kittens have to keep out of my room at night as they tend to think on these  cold and frosty nights  I am their hot hot bottle And tend to cuddle up on the heat source  bowel and kidney , Sparkle loves her dad not being will  and sneaks in my my bed at all opportune  moments. they are such a comfort Sylvester is my night comfort H does not like being to hot  and just sleeps by my side

Pam brought me some Ice in yesterday it was formed by one of the glass jugs that stayed in the back yard overnight  these were  on their way to the charity shop,, the cat scratcher post is placed for the cats to bird watch over the front garden  I built this restaurant a few months ago after being diagnosed with cancer this is the warmest place in the house looks as if ice is still in the jug,
 Digby at home with grandad
Another burden for Pam restaurant chef

 the medicine chest most of the stuff is for my diabetes will not say what i have for the cancer as it may unneeded visitors
 early morning frost  `i would to get some mr frosty shots  but I am stuck indoors,
 vesty  telling me he needs some sleep.
another frosty night , over past 4 years I have made several blogs  most like some have been  stollen etc but her is a list of all my sites its now 6.30 and its taken a lot of concentration and energy   and i am nowhere near what i want to do so will have a few hours kip .depends on howI feel if I get back online today  my Sister and brother in law is coming all the way from Deganwy so I must put some effort in looking better than what I feel weekend My pall Andrew is coming to visit all the way from Littlehampton picking up  another couple of friends from Cambridge on the way  I have not seen Kath and Vince since I left to live in Egypt 1994 be nice to see them again I am sure its going to be quite a shock for them seeing their once 15stone pall at 9.5 stone.

Rhodesian ridgeback

Rhodesian Ridgeback

(Ridgeback) (Lion Dog) (African Lion Hound)

The boys came up to visit last weekend and   within a few hours I was rushed to the cancer unit in Shrewsbury  . I do not even remember leaving the house  And what I do remember of the hospital is something I do not wish to remember  It took a few days  to get me anywhere near normal and 5 days to get my body under control they say I caught another infection  they would not say exact but I feel they sent me home to early after the last chest infection.

So my boys had to take their own photos. but At least I got to meet the new edition to the family
