I really thought when I took her to the vet today I wasn't bringing her home..All I did this morning was hold her and tell her good-bye...Take her to Dr. Tom and he does some sort of kitty massage on her spine and she stood up and took 3 steps..I looked at him and said "What are you? Oral Roberts?"....I also told him what Will said about the impacted anal canal..He took a poop scoop(technical name) and dug in there and got 3 inches of very hard packed poop out of her butt. Gave me some stuff to loosen up her bowels some and sent us home. That was a great idea Will and she is no longer full of shit.
Saturday I baked them a pecan pie and it was a hit, so that made me feel good. When we got home he said she would want to rest as she was pretty wore out..Did some walking in the grass out side while he showed me how to drain her bladder. So I took her home and Babs and I went and had Chinese food..We had 3 plates each of food...one of deserts...Granted they were small plates, but still. All I had since breakfast at 8A.M. was an apple about noon so we were hungry. All that and 2 drinks a piece and it was under $14.00...worth the trip to Wakko..We came home and we did some in town shopping..I got some puppy pads at Family Dollar..and when I walked in the door....get this..She stood up and took about 4 steps till she flopped on her butt..but she's walking..and she hasn't done that since I brought her home the first day. I couldn't stand her smell any more so I ran some warm bath water and gave her a bath..boy was she pissed..but she's so much cleaner and smells so good. After I had dried her up and I put her on her pad, she got up and walked the 3 feet to me..crawled up in my lap and nestled under my chin. I wept. I think she's going to make it folks..I have been faking it all this time. I really didn't think she was going to get better and thought I was going to have to put her down. But now? I think she's going to make it..I called the asshole vet this morning and asked him why he sent her home without telling me that she was almost paralyzed. He said she was weak but she could walk when she left here.I said yeah, but you didn't even warn me of that. Now she can't walk at all. He said 'well, you can bring her in and I'll x-ray her..I said no you won't, I don't ever want you to touch another one of my animals again..............ever...and hung up..Bastid..I knew if I went up there I was going to drag his fat no bedside manner ass out into the parking lot and kick it across the tarmac to the Auction Barn. So.....I take Annie back Wed. but he said if she acts like she's getting worse to call him. But the good news is..she's getting better. And you should see how he is with her(not just her either...all his patients) pets her, hugs her calls her Annie and talks to her. The Vet Buttroy called her ''it'' or 'kiddo'...or 'the cat'....and never petted her or touched her other than to handle her like she was dead weight..I don't know how to say this in any other way...but I'm one fucking happy old lady..Thank you all for your healing light and many prayers..I believe that you were as much a part of Annie's healing as Dr. Tom was...Goddess bless each and every one of you...jackie

Body of Irish drug dealer found in Amsterdam canal
A dismembered body found in a suitcase in an Amsterdam canal is that of an Irish man suspected of being a drug dealer, gardaí confirmed today.
The remains were found last month but DNA and fingerprint tests have only now identified the murder victim.
The 30-year-old man will not be named until relatives have been informed.
The victim, who was from Clondalkin, was facing drugs and gun charges in Ireland. He had skipped bail and fled to the Netherlands.
He had been previously charged after a €100,000 haul of drugs and firearms was recovered in Dublin.
The man was only identified after the authorities in Holland contacted the Garda for assistance.
Both police services are now co-operating to try and determine where the man was killed.

Texas has (brace yourself folks) 60 million acres of forest land. That ranks second to Alaska(and let me tell you..that really ranks) and is about 23 percent of the forestation in the southern U.S.
This is my favorite part of the story on the last count that was taken. "Last one we had was some dude on a horse in like 1904, rode through there and made notes," said Burl Carraway, a forest service department head.(I think his words were.."damn, they's a lot of trees around this here place.")
The ten-year study is at the halfway point. But Tom Boggus(now there's a name you can trust), the state forester and interim director of the forest service, said he doesn't expect the number to change.The projection was made from 10,000 plots of land scattered from the heavily wooded areas of East Texas to the desert plains of West Texas.
The breakdown is :35 percent of Texas forests are mesquite woodlands, 25 percent are hardwoods and 18 percent are juniper, also known as cedar.(also know as the main reason why every one in Texas has allergies).

I'm pooped..Been on the go all day, and would run an errand and come back and check on Annie, go run another errand and then come back and check on her..She thinks I'm nuts.
Oh...and one bit of funny news...guess who got a jury summons? Yup me. I think that's hysterical..You know they must be at the bottom of the pile if all they could come up with is me..I hope it's something good..
