I think I have only written once since we came back from Adelaide. There has been no news since then – well not from Adelaide anyway. On the home front, Annabell has been slightly unwell, member of the congregation died, I have two funerals – one Wednesday and one Thursday., Friday doctor and Saturday the General Election. So all in all, it’s been a sort of hectic time. Still I have coped with each crisis and I am still on my feet. but most important, I sleep at night.
I have still managed to get out with Benji and I have to tell you of my crazy stunt. I woke up and for some reason I was convinced that my wrist alarm had gone off. I got up, dressed and got Benji ready to go out. I had a quick glance at the clock and I swear that the hands were straight up and down — I.E. 6am. So off we went. Had a look and the moon
seemed to be in the right place so I continued with our walk. Then I kind of started to notice the lack of the cars I generally see in the morning and the place, I felt was a bit quieter than usual. Still on we walked and finally we finished and I got back into the house. That is when I discovered that the actual time was not 6am but rather 2:45am which means I had left the house to start our walk at 2am. I have heard that men in white coats have been looking for me but I have managed to avoid them them :o) One person I cannot avoid and when Annabell found out what I had done, she was less than amused. Ah well- – these brain storms .happen.
Annabell is well. The hospital sent her a letter this week regarding her last examination and they will telephone her on the 17th June to discuss issues with her. Can’t see why they could not have included the information in the letter or simply telephoned her rather than mail her. Adelaide hospitals do strange things. I can’t remember if I said that the treatment after two years is not working, so I don’t know where we go from here. I dare say we will find out “in the fulness of time” – as the saying goes. I take copies of all the mail and the information she receives from the local hospital, Flinders or doctors. There is no sinister motive, I just want to have a record of what has been happening. The cats have gone but they have left a calling card that my doctor and I are presently dealing with. I never knew but it turns out that I am allergic to cats. I have a rash and the doctor and I have been trying to work out what is causing it. We did believe it was an allergy of some kind and have been treating that but it was only yesterday that I mentioned cats and alarm bells went off. Turns out I am allergic to cats and I have developed an annoying rash which is being treated with medication and cream. I am not in any way confined since the rash is not contagious -however, it is very annoying!!
Currently there is a new tearoom – Cafe Hub – being built at the Foreshore next to the current Cafe. Can’t think why we should need two beside each other – unless there is something Council are not sharing :o) Every year, starting in early June though to August, the Giant Cuttlefish arrive for the breeding season. What has happened is that people have come from all over, donned wetsuits and braved the cold waters to observe a rare sight. After all the years that this has happened 2022 will be somewhat different with the arrival of a Glass bottom boat. Now you can have the pleasure of viewing the Giant Cuttlefish without getting wet or cold.
I have a new 18-55mm lens for my camera – now I just have to save my pennies for an 18-140mm. I am not too happy atthe Photography Group. They are lovely, friendly people and I feel very welcome, but, really, I am not learning anything. It’s more of a social group for people who are interested in photography.

Nice to hear from you. I had to chuckle about the 2:45 outing. Benji being the affable lad was a good sport going along with you at that hour. :)
We’re hopeful you and Annabell will get some definitive news soon. Swimming in the healthcare pool can be maddening.
Sorry about the allergic reaction to the kitties. They tend to make my eyes swell but never any rash. I hope your meds/creme relieve it. I find lavender essential oil is good for rashes/itching skin issues. It’s very healing and works like a dream on mosquito bites.
Stay well and keep smiling. Give Benji a good ear and/or belly rub from us. Enjoy your new lens, I’m drooling with envy.
Now that cartoon made me chuckle – my attitude to diets exactly! As did your early morning excursion. Sorry to hear that Annabell hasn’t been too well.
