The random photo this week has been chosen by Little Binky. We are usually away on a cruise around that date for our anniversary, so I have got one from the date nearest to then.

Before the flashback I want to wish Ivor a happy anniversary. We have been married for 49 wonderful years today.
We also received this lovely card from Timmy Tomcat and his family.
The flashback this week comes from January 2008 and is called:
Flynn the Cat Burglar.
This week I have a few one photo posts. It is the first time since I had to go to new Blogger because it is a pain having to wait for all the back posts to load to find the ones I want. It was so much easier on old Blogger when you had a certain amount to a page.
These are all of the boys relaxing.October 2007 Tuesday Twosome:
First of all I just wanted to give a brief health update to explain why I haven't commented much for a few days.
Many of you know that I get a lot of problems with my gall bladder, but they didn't want to operate originally in case it accelerated the cancer. I have been getting repeated attacks which are steadily getting worse. I had a particularly bad attack on Sunday morning, only 5 days after the previous one so went to A&E.
They took me in and gave me the first morphine injection and put me on a drip, and allowed me to have clear liquids only. They had hoped to fit me in for an emergency operation on Monday but the theatres were too busy. When it seemed Tuesday would be the same they sent me home on Monday night. I had a phone call on Wednesday to say they could do it on the 26th.
They hope to do it by laparoscopy but warned me it may have to be open surgery which will mean a week stay in hospital. A laparoscopy would only be overnight.
As to the cancer. The tablets had stopped working in January and it had started to grow very slightly again, so they prescribed me a new tablet. My latest CT scan in August showed it was working. There is no more spread and one of the cancerous nodules had shrunk very slightly, so good news. I don't like to bore everyone with my health but just wanted to say why I hadn't been commenting much.
Okay, enough of that and on to the flashback which comes from December 2007 and was, "A Wet Sunday in the Hay Barn."The weather has been very wet lately, so we hafn't been for many walks wiv mum. We yooshully stay in the garden while she goes out to do the horses and gets soaking wet.
