The vet called this morning to say that Raven's blood and fecal samples were normal. I confess to being disappointed, but only because I'm fond of easy answers. Miss Thing seems fine today, though very wet -- the weather remains exactly as predicted.
My older sister always called underwear wedgies "hungry bum" when we were kids and this evocative image has stuck with me for decades. Today I am reinventing it to describe the rubber wellies I wear for farm chores as "hungry boots". Unlike the pair I retired several months ago, these boots relentlessly try to tug my socks down over my heels. This morning I realized that I have unconsciously classified my sock collection into pairs that do and do not surrender to the hungry boots. Due to a laundry shortage I was forced to wear surrender socks today, and had to pull them up (balancing on one foot) three times while mucking the paddock. Do other people have this problem? If not, what type of socks and/or wellies do you wear?
