Meet .....

.... my Dad and his pal, Ollie.........
I took this photo a couple of days ago (before it got as hot as it now, hence the pullover - hottest day of the year today and likely to be 25c tomorrow, phew!) but hopefully I'll get a better one soon as this one isn't really in too sharp a focus. Thought I'd take the opportunity of updating my photo's of him as the last one was taken a couple of years ago and we're starting a new era now, with Mum gone. Ollie seems to still be going strong - so much so that I keep forgetting to ring the vet to find out where we go from here now that his medication has run out. Perhaps the vet got the diagnosis wrong and it was nothing more than a bug, even if he has got an enlarged stomach!


Anyway, I had the camera with me 'cos I had to photograph stuff to try and sell - electrical's that the charity shop won't take but that are just too good to dump. There's also a small wheelchair and a mobility scooter that the shop it was bought from won't take back :o(( Dad refuses to use it, or even try, which is probably not a bad thing 'cos he'd more than likely get lost nowadays if he went out of his street - bless! He used to hate Mum using it and worried all the while when she went out on it - not that that had happened for a while! A new wheelchair, that we had bought for Mum to use just this February, is going to come in handy for him though, as he has great difficulty walking so we've adjusted everything for his use. Just looking forward to being able to take him out to use it now. Trips to the Dogs Trust don't really hack it for wheelchair use as he only comes for the ride and doesn't get out of the car - lol!

OMG Pam, can't believe how like your dad you are. He would have one hell of a job disowning you.
Do hope that Ollie is around to keep him company for a long time yet, your dad looks so lovingly at him.

I love your 'ramblings', so interesting.

Pam it is so lovely to see your Dad. Ollie looks like he rules the roost with your Dad though. Keep up your ramblings as i also enjoy them.
