It pays to listen

Next week I'm supposed to have surgery to fix up my reduced but scarred boobs.

The procedure involves surgeons from two different hospitals. They decided to operate at one because it already had a piece of equipment they needed. The letter I received was for the other.

If I hadn't paid attention at the consult, I might have turned up at the wrong place at the wrong time, because I'm the only person who noticed the mistake.

So glad I'm attentive.

World War III Anyone?

Wherever it starts, seems to me that WWIII is edging away from the impossible or the unlikely towards the probable.

Putin is acting like a new Hitler. If he continues to posture like he is, the West will have no option to do one of two things.

They could act weak and let him and his followers get away, not just with downing an airliner then obstructing the investigation and the retrieval of the dead, but with occupying all of Ukraine. Then when Putin realises he can get with anything, he will escalate and BOOM! World War III.

Or they can act strong and challenge him, eventually militarily, and BOOM! World war III.

That's if the situation in Gaza doesn't lead to someone nuking Israel first.

Happy days,.

Ah, the dear little dance of postman Bobby.

Litter and Wildlife

Looks like this didn't post last week.

Sadly, the fox cub hasn't been seen since last Sunday, and despite having a cage trap in my garden for days, I have to assume I won't be rescuing him. He must have died.

Anyway, below is the story you would have read a week ago, when I still hoped for a positive outcome:

People are so unthinking when they drop litter. Anyone with half a brain knows that, apart from looking terrible, it harms the environment and can endanger wildlife.

Last night I had a very sad experience of this. There was a fox cub in my garden with its head wedged in a plastic container. I couldn't get near.

I called the Fox Project and someone was with me in about 45 minutes. But even he couldn't get close enough to catch the little critter. The plastic wasn't completely opaque, and at least the cub can breathe. what it can't do is eat or feed, so unless it manages to dislodge the impediment, or someone manages to get close enough to help it, the little life will be lost in appalling circumstances.

I've leafleted the immediate area and hope others' eyes may be enough to get help to our precious charge.

Pravda

Not a favourite episode. Bishop was her usual unexciting self. Everybody needed a good slap.
