I had a chat with Elaine today. She is having a nice time with her Dad. She has seen the Doc and is also going to the Dentist whilst she is up there, plus take Bombo to the vet to have a look at his teeth! We give him loads of stuff to try and keep his teeth and gums in good nick, but they are looking a bit manky! We think that he may be older than we think, which generally happens when you get dogs from the pound ... he was supposed to be only 2 years old when we got him back in 2007 but I suspect he was a lot older.
So they should both come back with a clean bill of health and a much lighter wallet!
Meanwhile on the home front, I took Sammie out for a good early morning walk, then got stuck into freshening up the rear deck.
It took longer than I thought to sand it and prime it with undercoat, it was also pretty hot out in the sun all day.
It's looking a lot better. Tomorrow I will put on the topcoat, although checking the forecast there may be showers.
I took Sammie for yet another walk then broke out the emergency rations ... Steak and Ale pie, mushy peas and mash....I only had a couple of Jaffa Cakes and coffee for lunch so I was a bit hungry, OK!
I was going to go to the pub quiz night, I think I may just chill with a glass of red!
